Weekend has arrived and Give Away time

Goood Morning Fur Friends,


The weekend is arriving and I am so excited. 
Weather has warmed up in San Francisco, summer is around the corner and already all the fun weekend events are starting. 


Last weekend the weather was fantastic so on Sunday I took Layla to the 40th anniversary Easter in the Park Event. This event is organized every year at Easter by a non profit organization called The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. They are a non profit organization who have devoted themselves to community service, promoting human rights which includes respect for Diversity. You can read more about them on their website :  http:// https://www.thesisters.org/

Layla with some of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

It was a fun event, lots of music, laughter costumes of course and people and dogs. We sat back on the lawn listening and watching till Madam started to get antsy so after an hour or so we walked home and Madam fell asleep LOL.

So with that event last weekend and DogFest coming up this weekend the weekend outdoors life with events and parks is starting. I am so looking forward to it and I am sure Layla will be too when she see what she gains LOL.


With all this happening I decided to do a review of some new freeze dried treats as they are easy to carry and light and good for the munchies for Madam while we are out and about.  The treats that I have reviewed are from my favorite company Raw Paws Pet Food and the major plus is that they are for CATS also – yup, time to include the cats too. Of course, when we do reviews we do a give away and Layla has given her stamp of approval that these are the best of the best. 

She tasted:
The Free Run Chicken Recipe – I should make her run for these too, The Free Run Turkey Recipe,  The Free Run Duck Recipe, Grass Fed Beef Recipe 

All of them are : Grain Free and Gluten Free with no preservatives, additives or fillers. AND are made in the USA with no hormones or antibiotics.

Plus don’t forget with the LAYLA15 coupon you get 15% off your order. 

Raw Paws Pet Food also offered to donate the above treats to one of our favorite Rescue Organizations and we chose Muttville Senior Rescue. 

Who is Muttville :

Muttville’s mission is to change the way the world thinks about and treats older dogs and to create better lives for them through rescue, foster, adoption, hospice, education, and advocacy.  The tragic truth is that every day, dogs in good health with wonderful personalities are euthanized. Why? They’re older. And because they’re older, they’re not considered adoptable. Muttville saves senior and special needs rescue dogs; finds suitable homes for those dogs that are adoptable and offers end of life care for those that are not. These are not just shelter dogs; every day, dogs are moved from loving homes to concrete cages because their guardians have died or moved or simply can’t care for them anymore. If we had our way, no dog would spend its last days in a cold, dark shelter. There is so much love and joy in these dogs! Bringing these special dogs into a home is not only good for the dogs, but such loving, mellow dogs transform the quality of life for the people who adopt or foster them.

You can read more about them on the link : :https://muttville.org/

WOOOF let the give away begin and good luck everyone.

This give away is open for the USA only and persons over 18 years old.  All you have to do is click on the rafflecopter link below and it will take you to entry form.

With a big Woof, Love and Licks from Layla

Spring is in the Air

TGIF !!!!!  Woof Happy Friday all my fur friends and I hope you are all looking forward to the weekend the way we are.

We have had a busy week but also celebrating that the sun is shining and with the Daylight Savings we are now able to get to the park when I finish work. WOW what a concept, to feel the warm sun on your face after all the cold rainy weather. Not sure how long it will last but we are enjoying it immensely.

On Tuesday I took Layla for her annual check up. Growing old means being more careful, keeping double eyes on all and in a nutshell making sure she is getting all the correct nutrients in her food which I as a Jewish Mother is always worried about. They had done blood work on her a month ago as she had lost 1.5 lbs and I was really concerned BUT the happy news is she is back to her normal 15 lbs and nothing to worry about, she got a clean bill of health. I am so relieved over this as I know now I must be doing something right.


I spoke to the vet about her not wanting to go out after 7 in the evening and the vet told me not to worry, because of her one eye going blind she might be afraid of the dark so just to let her do what she wants and if she needs to go out she will tell me, which is what she normally does. 


Now as you all know I cook for Layla, and one of my biggest worries is that her food is not properly balanced so I am always doing research, checking and have come across the most amazing supplements which even my vet said she can see the difference in her since I have been giving them. Plus they are made in the USA which is the most important of all.

What are they :

01. Raw Paws Hip and Joint Support for Dogs and Cats : Organic hip and joint supplement is beneficial for all pet life stages from puppies and kittens up to seniors! This joint supplement is a healthy blend of green lipped mussel powder, ginger, turmeric curcumin, pumpkin and ceylon cinnamon. Giving this daily supplement offers natural arthritis relief without the nasty side effects from pet arthritis medicine! 

02.  Raw Paws Mineral Rich Organic Sea Kelp Daily Supplement for Dogs and Cats : This excellent natural source of iodine supports glandular functioning such as thyroid health and metabolism. With an improved metabolism, the overall health of your pets will improve by an increase in energy and decrease in inflammation and infection. Sea Kelp promotes oral health by reducing buildup of plaque and tartar for healthy teeth. Being the #1 source of natural trace minerals, sea kelp helps to strengthen the immune system, promotes a healthy skin and coat, reduces itching and fortifies the blood for an overall healthy, vibrant life! Sea Kelp also has 60 different vitamins, minerals, and trace elements as well as 21 amino acids. Made with zero artificial ingredients.

And I think the most important for our pampered pets are the TREATS which Layla is addicted to now. They sent me :

01. Chicken Jerky for dogs only  02. Freeze Dried Green Tripe which is for both Dogs and Cats 03. Freeze Dried Duck which is for both Dogs and Cats .

Layla is at this moment in Treat Heaven, every time she hears a bag she thinks its treats.

What a week !!! But … it is give away time

It is Wednesday, middle of the week.

What a week we have had, raining non stop that we have hardly gone out and between working and trying to get Layla out when the rain stops it has been exhausting but today the sun is shining and hopefully it will be for a couple of days.

As you all know I watch Layla very carefully health wise as she is getting older like me and am always looking for ways to keep her healthy. I had noticed she was losing weight all of a sudden and was concerned so I took her to the vet a week a ago to find out what was going on. This was a vet I have never used but due to different reasons I had to go to her and it was the biggest mistake of my life. I have never met such a cold person in my life who all she was interested in was how to make money. She did not answer my questions, told me that she had a gum infection and did nothing about it, and in a nutshell I walked out of her clinic nearly in tears and worried big time.

I yesterday went to my regular vet and I walked out of there smiling and relaxed. She gave Layla a proper examination, we did a blood test to check her on the inside and I also found out she had put on one pound phew. I sat with her talking about what I am feeding her, where I am getting the information and she was really happy with what I am doing. She checked her gums and gave me some antibiotics for them although they are not as bad as I thought. I also learned something from her which makes sense and that is :

01. It is better to give her an animal oil than coconut oil.
02. Because of the heater in our building, her skin is drying and she told me to put in her food fish oil and it will help. I do that anyway but am stopping with the coconut oil.
03. Vaccines – she does not think it is necessary for Layla to get this year flu shots, the Leptospirosis shot or any other and that her rabies is good for another 2 years.
04. I showed her the 4Paws Pet Blend Hemp Oil Supplement for Cats or Dogs, and because it has cod liver oil and cold pressed organic, virgin hemp seed oil she liked the product and told me to carry on giving it to her and that is the fish oil that she is getting.
05. I also showed her the 4Paws Topical Relief Balm, and all she said is if it is working that is good.
So, with all this and I being happy with the products for Layla and I am loving the products also we are doing a give away this week for the following products worth $ 125.00 and will be open for Canada and USA residents over the age of 18 years old.
We have become an affiliate with this company so if you are interested in buying their products below is the link :
Restorative Botanicals are sponsoring this give away and it is our first of the year so good luck everyone.
So that has been our week and we hope everyone is staying warm and safe in this cold weather.
On this note I am going back to sleep as the vet visit exhausted me,
Woof with love from Layla

Halloween Memories

Woof woof everyone,

With Halloween around the corner and we have been discussing this month Domestic Violence Awareness I am going to share with you one of my special memories of Halloween which was in the shelter.

When Mothers and kids run from the abuse many arrive with very little and have to start all over again. It is really sad to see these kids with a small bag with literally nothing inside and a Mother trying to soothe the child. The staff at the shelters are amazing and immediately step in with toys, clothing, hygiene items and whatever else is needed. I remember when I got to the shelter at night and was shown my room on the bed was a care package waiting for me with all the necessities to get me started. It is a comforting feeling to know you are being looked after and can finally breathe.

So when a holiday comes up like Halloween all the kids are treated to costumes of their choice donated by wonderful giving people and that way they do not have to feel left out when going to school or just walking down the road. The laughter and happiness in those moments is something money cannot buy. They also do get bags for their candy and of course lots of candy LOL.

I had Baby with me in the shelter at the time and there were Halloween dog parties in different pet stores so I decided to go get her a costume. I did not have much money and went to Goodwill and was lucky to find one that fits. I thought it was a space outfit until someone told me it was a fire hydrant ROFL, I fell off the bed laughing so much but she looked adorable in it.

So because we are on this subject we decided to skip the diary this week as we had a slow week and instead talk about trick or treating, or as Layla woofs treating only as she will not do tricks. You all know we love to support small businesses and when Jen approached us to give Layla Halloween treats I said yes for definite plus we decided to do a give away so one other dog can be spoiled too.

Layla was in seventh heaven when I opened the package, so many boxes beautifully wrapped and so many different smells, it was mind boggling for her as to where to start. I just sat back trying to take pics but she was moving too fast from excitement. She devoured a pumpkin looking one and wanted more but as she had not eaten her breakfast I said no and she will get another after dinner.

What I love about her treats is that they are all wheat, grain and soy free which really makes a difference when you have a dog with food allergies. The frosting is made of yoghurt with different flavors so in a way they are kind of healthy LOL. I will highly recommend these treats to everyone.

We doing Thursday with a Give Away

Woof it is Thursday !!!

Another week has passed since our last blog and we are one day late with our blog, bad Mom but it has been as usual a busy week.

So last Thursday was movie night, a movie I really wanted to see. We went to the park, sat with a friend and his dog and got all comfy. I made a mistake and did not think of one thing !!! Popping wine bottles, and when they started popping Layla crawled onto my lap shaking like a leaf. Why my mistake as I should have given her some CBD oil before we left the house. That was the end of our Movie night in the park as I brought her home immediately. The movie I will have to see another time LOL.

On Saturday we went to a BBQ which was fun, it was held at the Church where I volunteer and they once a year do a thank you BBQ for us volunteers, lots of food, laughter and some dogs. Layla was of course in seventh heaven as she got some goodies off my plate. Something I do not normally do.

Sunday was another adventure where we went to visit friends who were doing a pop-up outside a grocery store in one of the great areas of San Francisco. They have an amazing online store where you can shop till you drop for fantastic healthy products for your pampered pet, both dog and cat.

Layla is in love with their beef jerky and cannot get enough of it. I have found her new doggy crack and she just hears the bag and all hell breaks loose, dancing all over the place. So she has decided to share with her friends and we are doing a give away one 1/2 lb bag to one lucky winner. PetWantsSF homemade beef jerky is made with human grade top round steak. They marinade it overnight, dehydrate each batch and if Ms. Picky Eater loves them you know they are good.

They also have amazing health care products, CBD Oils, and so much more to keep our pets healthy and happy. and guess what, that includes cats too.

You can see all their products on their website :
