This Isn't An Advertisement!

The dogs have all been eating the stuff that I was hand-feeding Chi Chi for just a couple of weeks and there is a definite difference in them. Stinky's shedding is waaay down. There aren't nearly as many dog hair tumbleweeds blowing about the place and Chi Chi is running sometimes! She has started eating the stuff when it is mixed with yogurt out of the bowl by herself. It just took a few days for her to get used to it, I guess. I'll take the bowl and put it on the ground and she'll get a few licks in then I'll move the bowl across the room and she will flat scamper to it. I move it a few times. I think the exercise is good for her. The Doggy Fountain of Youth is called Dinovite and it will be a staple in the canines diets from now on.

As you may know, the dogs (Stinky and Tiny) have their beds in our bathroom. One of the main things that will sell me on a body wash or bath soap is if it smells really strong. Strong enough so that when I get out of the shower or tub, the room smells like the soap instead of a ready-to-mildew dog. I have found my soap Nirvana. Candle Dippers has fantastic shower gel, cold pressed soap, body mousse (just a tiny dab makes you super soft) and sheafoliate that smells freaking great. (oh, and the candles there are really strong smelling too!) They also have an air freshener spray that is amazing. It takes one squirt per room to make the house smell yummy. I'm partial to the Orange Pomegranate smelling stuff. One bar of the Orange Pomegranate soap has been set aside to bathe the dogs in. I will sniff Chi Chi afterwards until I pass out.

So, do any of you all have something that works really well that I might want to try? I am easily influenced by my peers.

I hate those candle and soap places, the stink emanating out of the shop into the mall is enough to knock a buzzard off a shit wagon at 30 yards.

The Phosgene Kid - Of course, I love those stores! I like to go in and open the jars to sniff.

This sounds Amazing! How great that you discovered it....It's like Chi Chi has a NEW Lease on Life....!

I ordered a couple of things from Candle Dippers, Chickie...Thanks so much for the referral...! I'll let you know how I like it...!

I have not found anything that can remove the stink from Carmen. She always smells good after a bath but within a few hours she's back to her old stinky self.

I am definitely going to try the dinovite!

Lady of the Hills - It really tickles me that the stuff seems to be helping Chi Chi out. I'll do anything for her.

Definitely let me know what you think of the things that you ordered!

Mike - We use BioSpot Flea & Tick shampoo on the dogs and it seems to keep them from getting musty too quickly.

I think Tiny would stay fresher if she wasn't always snugged up against Stinky's leg pits.

Patti - Let me know how it goes! We got it to see if it would help with Stinky's immense shedding and the benefit to Chi Chi is just a bonus!
