The Truly Grand Grand Canyon

   We took the boys to see the Grand Canyon on our way home from the BlogPaws conference. It truly is a grand sight to see and leaves little doubt as to why it is one of the Wonders of the World. Enjoy these photos from our visit.

   We always strive to feed Bentley and Pierre healthy treats. That’s why when I heard about Kaleb’s Organic Dog Treats, I was excited to try them. They are baked with 100% USDA certified organic ingredients and non-GMO project verified. Kaleb’s Vermont bakery makes these treats in small batches to ensure the best quality. They use all natural ingredients but no wheat, corn or soy.

   Simple ingredients make these bone-shaped treats simply irresistible! The Banana Oatmeal flavor is made with barley flour, rolled oats, bananas, applesauce, and cinnamon; all organic. I had to smell it when I took one out of its bag. The smell was heavenly and the box clearly states that you can even eat these treats yourself, so I had to taste a bite. It was good! No wonder the boys love them so much.

Help Your Dog Stay Calmz

Barking from the Bayou LLC received a Calmz Anxiety Relief System in exchange for an honest review. We only share products that we use and believe would benefit our readers. Calmz is not responsible for the contents of this article.

   If you are one of the thousands of pet parents whose dog suffers from anxiety, then you know that you will try just about anything to help them. Bentley does not like thunderstorms or fireworks. Those are his two biggest anxiety triggers. Over the past eight years, I have tried countless products with varying degrees of success. To date, our biggest success comes from an all-natural herbal blend that I add to his food. I usually give it to him on days that bad weather is forecasted.
   It would still be wonderful to slip something on him in the event of a sudden pop-up thunderstorm. That is where this innovative new device comes in to save the day. I was able to have a private meeting with the Calmz Anxiety Relief System representative in Phoenix. She explained to me how the device worked and I agreed to give it a try.
