Thundershirt {Review}

In doing so, we hope to strengthen the bonds between pets and their families, reduce the number of pets abandoned, and help shelters and rescue groups place dogs and cats in need of families.


You dog might need a Thundershirt if they....

these could be symptoms of your dog displaying anxiety.


They are more have just shirts. There are also Thunder....
Leashes, Sprays, Coats, Toys, Treats, Caps, and more!

What Bella Reviewed:

Bella received the Thundersweater from Thundershirt. The sweater is the both of best worlds for the apparel line. It is a combo item with both a sweater and a shirt in one. During the hot months Bella can wear her Thundershirt. As the year turns cold the sweater snaps one the shirt and it's good to go. It has the calming benefits of the shirt in a sweater as well!

Two Solutions, One Happy Dog!


How does it work? 
The shirt gives your pet a gentle pressure, which gives your pup a calm and less anxious feeling. It helps over 80% of dogs. After having Bella wear her shirt, I believe she's part of that 80% as well! Bella will do the typical Chihuahua shake. When I put the shirt on her, the shakes were greatly reduced! If you feel that this product doesn't help your pet, simply send it back. This company stands by it's product and guarantees 100% satisfaction.

When to us the Thundershirt/Thundersweater?
  • Going to the vets
  • Fireworks
  • Storms
  • Travel
  • New environments
  • Any other situation your pet may feel comfortable in

 I was so happy to see that they had a size that fit Bella perfectly. 
It can be difficult to find apparel for a 4 lb. pup!


I highly recommend any pet owner to try ThunderShirt for their dog/cat. With an over 80% success rate and a 100% satisfaction promise, you have nothing to lose!

What I reviewed:



Justin and I were so excited when we received this guest book in the mail! I have seen many types of sign in ideas for weddings but this one tops them all. This poster is very large and is certainly a statement piece for the reception area. The paper is thick and of high quality. It has the feel and look of chalk board but is not! I look forward to incorporating this guest book into our wedding and having all our loved ones and friends sign it (there are 51 hearts total, leaving plenty of space to write a sentence or two). The best part is that we can frame this poster after the wedding and look at it and smile for years to come. It's not a literal book that collects dust after the wedding.


Personalized Wedding Sack


Again, extremely satisfied with this wedding card sack! It is so neat to have an item that is so personalized. Justin and I got to pick the design of the sack, the color of the front and the ribbon it was wrapped in. We were looking to one of a kind items for our wedding and this is one of them! This is not a card box you use once and then have no use for it. We plan on using this item after the wedding, whether we decide to frame it or make it into a burlap pillow. 


Bev has wonderful, hand crafted items that are sure to help make your special day your own. I love that I had the opportunity to partner with Bev and see first hand her high quality products. It makes me smile to have items crafted from around the world and brought together for one life changing day!

I recommend Hessian & Burlap to any bride-to-be!

Merrick Lil' Brush Bones from Chewy.com {Review}


About Merrick:

At Merrick, we don’t just make pet food. We make the Best Food Ever.

Our founder, Garth Merrick, started in 1988 with the Flossie. A hearty, healthy treat that also helps clean dogs’ teeth. It was the first of its kind, but for us it was just the beginning.

Soon we were creating handcrafted, all-natural pet food with the freshest, highest quality ingredients available. Why? Because whole foods don’t just taste better —they’re better for your pet. Because good things come in small batches. And because as far as dogs and cats are concerned, handmade recipes taste way, way better than scientific formulas. 

What we reviewed:

 
Merrick Lil' Brush Bones Grain-Free Dental Chews Dog Treats
  These tasty grain-free and gluten-free treats are made with all-natural ingredients, and include a few of your pups favorite things! There's no substitution for home cooking. Merrick strives to use all ingredients from the U.S. and uses whole foods that not only taste better, but they're better for your pet. 
What Bella thought of the treats:

Bella went crazy for these treats. One of my favorite parts of getting products from Chewy is seeing how excited Bella gets when the box is delivered. She can always smell her surprise and perks up with excitement! After a few weeks she knows that if she's a good girl she gets a Lil' Brush Bone at the end of the day.

What do I like about this Merrick product? Well to start off it is made in the US with care from people who love dogs. Dog owners don't have to question what is in there dog's treats/food. These products are both gluten and grain free and are created with only natural ingredients (that means you can pronounce everything that's on the label). 

These treats help freshen breath, remove tartar from teeth and offers a way to reward your furry friend. Overall, Bella gives Merrick Lil' Brush Bones two paws up!



A big thank you to Chewy.com for letting Bella and I be apart of the Chewy.com blogger family! :)
