Halo's Liv-A-Littles Freeze-Dried Salmon Product Review

 

Sandie (my 12 year old Sharpei Mix dog) loves loves loves SALMON.  I was given a free treat container of the freeze-dried salmon by Halo!  My dog could smell that salmon on the outside of the shipping box, she knew it was for her!

I like the small treat because it is perfect for treating her while we are eating dinner (to keep from giving her food we are eating which is a big NO) and she definitely wants MORE.

I would order this all the time but the cost is ineffective for me.  I realize that this cost is very good for this product considering what other places are charging for it.  It's something I would consider for a birthday gift, the day she was adopted, Christmas gift.  And I will buy it again!

I decided that I will buy this again for the mere reason that I learned on the directions that you can push the treat (dehydrated salmon) between your fingers and add it to the meal to encourage eating.  Sandie needs this right now because as a Senior she had blood work done and a urine pull.  They have her on a special dog food to treat the crystals in her urine.
I did that today and she ate all her breakfast! 

I would highly recommend this treat to other dog companions (aka "owners").  I think if Sandie could talk she would recommend it to others too as long as they aren't taking from her supply!

ps... TO THE CAT PEOPLE: This product is for cats too!  Meow!

Shared article:: List of hobbies and what are yours?


List of Hobbies

In today's fast-paced and stressful times, indulging in a hobby is a much-needed breath of fresh air. When it comes to hobbies, the sky is the limit. Anything that interests you and makes you feel relaxed and happy can be cultivated as a hobby. Our section on hobbies has a wide range of areas that you can browse through if you're on the lookout for something different to take up as a hobby, or to nurture the hobby you already have. What's more, there are some hobbies that you can even make money from.
 
I have many hobbies and some things I find that when I see them from friends online or offline, I start them for the challenge and then I keep some as hobbies and others I do once in awhile.
 
List of Different Types of Hobbies

Though we all may have similar appearances outwardly, our mind is but a bundle of complex interests and imagination, not possible for all to understand. A hobby is a way to escape from doing what is 'expected' from us, to doing what we 'like' to do. Maybe I would never be able to understand why Johnny Depp likes playing with Barbie dolls; maybe you will. If you like doing something, just do it! You don't have to think about the others; there are a plenty of things you are doing for them anyway!

 My essay:

My mom is alive and well today and youthful (no matter what she says!)  She is a retired nurse and is working 2 volunteer jobs a week.  She has two dogs that keep her busy.  

My mom is a very funny person.  She can fill your day just telling dog stories of the dogs that we had as a family when I was growing up at home.  People who meet my mom love her instantly and she has a lot of friends both where she lives and from her days working as a nurse in PA.  

Her love for dogs is what something that she passed on to me.  When I got married we instantly brought rescue dogs into our home and did some fosters as well.   My mom didn't get rescue dogs until I was married and she lost (to their death) a number of dogs (within her moves to Michigan and to where she lives now).  I'm so proud of her and feel that I brought that love of dogs full circle since she now adopts like my husband and I do.

My mom  also passed on her love for other people to me and being outgoing and talking to anyone (and I mean even strangers walking their dog while we are walking ours!)  I know that many of her few different settings as a nurse naturally opened up these opportunities to be outgoing and meeting new people all the time and doing things for them that are so nice.

The way in which she would give the shirt off her back to strangers is what I do to this day.  I'm really thankful in the ways that my mom started when I was a young child, demonstrating how to live my life as a loving and quality adult.  I love you Mom!
