Super Stylish bkr Bottle — The Most Beautiful Way to Stay Hydrated

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Since posting an Instagram photo of Daisy & me enjoying the sunshine on our patio, several readers and followers have contacted me about the beautiful water bottle in the photo. There’s been so much interest that I thought I’d post on the blog to let you all in on the secret!

I’ll admit that I’ve got a bit of a water bottle obsession. I figure the more fab water bottles I own, the more motivation I have to stay hydrated. I’ve got a SIGG, a Takeya, 2 ThinkSport bottles (read my ThinkSport water bottle review), to name a few, but by far the one that get the most attention when we are out and about is my gorgeous bkr water bottle!

The bkr water bottle is the prettiest, eco-friendly solution to staying hydrated at home, in the office and on the go. It comes in SO many gorgeous colors that’s it’s hard to choose just one. It’s actually a clear glass water bottle wrapped in your choice of beautiful silicone sleeves.

You can order a bkr bottle HERE and get FREE Shipping. The one I have is a pretty in pink color called “Bambi” but I’m so addicted that I’m already planning what color to get next. Probably in “Dive” which is a sheer Bali green-blue.

Over the past several weeks, Daisy and I have been telling you about how we’ve been using TropiClean oral care products to help keep Daisy’s mouth fresh, healthy and kissable. One way we’re doing this is by using TropiClean’s Water Additive. It’s a super easy daily maintenance routine, as simple as just pouring a cap-full of the natural solution into Daisy’s water bowl.

dental gel dog review

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Daisy and I have been testing some dental health products for dogs from Tropiclean. We’re working with them to help spread the word about the importance of healthy teeth for dogs.

Did you know that 80% of dogs show signs of periodontal disease by age three? Daisy turned four this year and her vet says her teeth look great. We plan to keep them that way for a long time to come, because left untreated, oral disease can seep into the blood stream and cause serious health risks for your pets. Bad breath is often one of the first signs of oral disease and should not be ignored.

In addition to brushing and scheduling regular veterinary exams for your fur kids, you can also add a simple dental solution from Tropiclean to help remove plaque and tarter for a healthier mouth you will love to smooch! When it comes to clean teeth and fresh breath, we like the extra help we get from Tropiclean Fresh Breath Clean Teeth Gel. You just apply a few drops directly to your dog’s teeth.

It’s recommended that you start by using the gel once daily. You’ll notice your pet licking their lips repeatedly after application. This is normal and helps the gel to mix with saliva and coat all surfaces of your pet’s teeth and gums. Ordinarily, after 30 days, application can be reduced to twice weekly for regular maintenance.

Reasons to Use Clean Teeth Gel for Dogs
  • Removes plaque & tartar
  • Works fast and naturally to help reduce plaque and tartar
  • A proprietary blend of natural, holistic ingredients produce a healthy oral environment
  • Kills the germs that cause bad breath, plaque and gingivitis
  • Soothes minor gum irritations
  • Clean teeth and ‘up close’ fresh breath everyday!

If you’d like to learn more, be sure to check out the results of the Clinical Trials for the Fresh Breath Clean Teeth Gel. Pretty impressive and validates the positive feedback we’ve heard from other pet parents about their own experiences. Visit Tropiclean their website, on Facebook and Twitter.


Saving Simon: How a Rescue Donkey Taught Me the Meaning of Compassion

Saving Simon book

I’m always on the lookout for great books to read myself and to give as gifts, so when I heard about this new one, I knew I had to share it with you. Whether you are an avid reader or are looking for unique holiday gift ideas for the animal lover on your list this year, be sure to check out Saving Simon: How a Rescue Donkey Taught Me the Meaning of Compassion. Not only is it an amazing and inspirational story, but it’s also on sale right now in both the Hardcover (39% OFF) and Kindle edition (56% OFF).

In the spring of 2011, the book’s author Jon Katz received a phone call that would challenge every idea he ever had about mercy and compassion. An animal control officer had found a neglected donkey on a farm in upstate New York, and she hoped that Jon and his wife, Maria, would be willing to adopt him.

Jon wasn’t planning to add another animal to his home on Bedlam Farm, certainly not a very sick donkey. But the moment he saw the wrenching sight of Simon, he felt a powerful connection. Simon touched something very deep inside of him. Jon and Maria decided to take him in.

Simon’s recovery was far from easy. Weak and malnourished, he needed near constant care, but Jon was determined to help him heal. As Simon’s health improved, Jon would feed him by hand, read to him, take him on walks, even confide in him like an old and trusted friend. Then, miraculously, as if in reciprocation, Simon began to reveal to Jon the true meaning of compassion, the ways in which it can transform our lives and inspire us to take great risks.
