Himalayan All Natural Dog Chew

Himalayan Dog Chew

I’ve had & been surrounded by very large dogs my entire life, mainly pitbulls, who are known for their powerful jaws and chewing power. Mia was my first ‘small dog’ – although I didn’t know how big or small she was going to be when I found her. But I kid you not when I say my 32 pound Mia can out-chew any other dog no matter what size or breed they are. I can give Marley (an 80+ pound blue nosed brindle pitbull) and Mia the same exact bully stick or bone and 9 times out of 10 Mia finishes first. So I’ve been on what seems to be a never ending quest to find a healthy, long lasting, natural dog treat and haven’t had much success. I refuse to buy any bones/chews that are manufactured in China due to the constant recalls of food, treats and bones from the region that have been shown to cause illness and unfortunately death in some dogs. I look at Chinese dog food/treats the same way I look at GMO’s (genetically modified crops) – they’re just bad and something I intend to keep my Mia and myself far away from.

 

So naturally I’ve tried everything – rawhide, bully sticks, Pedigree Jumbones, Purina Busy Bones, Nylabone Healthy Edibles bones and everything in between. The braided bully sticks are what lasted the longest. That is until last night when I wandered into Petsmart and noticed they started carrying this Himalayan Dog Chew – I had seen them before but the higher than normal price point turned me off. But last night I figured what the hell and shelled out the $15 or so for the treat. Today I went back to Petsmart and bought 6 more.

Himalayan Dog Chew Ingredients

This chew truly is long lasting and Mia clearly loves the thing – and I love it because it has 3 ingredients, all of which I can pronounce and I know what the hell it is – unlike many other dog treats and chews. It contains yak and cow milk, salt and lime juice. The ingredients seems overly simplistic – but it works and lasts a long time. It ultimately lasted about 2 hours and 15 minutes – 1 1/5 to 2 times longer than the next closest chew (a large braided bully stick). Needless to say, I think I’ve found the best dog chew on the market and it is the Himalayan All Natural Dog Chew. Every dog owner, regardless of size, should be stocked up on these chews. They have the chews available for any sized dog, so there’s no excuse for you to not get it. It actually is cost effective (when looking at time it takes to complete the chew vs dollar amount), great for your dog and it keeps them entertained for quite a long time and definitely tires them out a bit.

The Jets Ditch Tim Tebow and Jason Collins Is Gay

I love this for so many reasons – but most importantly because this little comic is true. It seems everyone’s love and enthusiasm for Tim Tebow, especially from NFL teams, has disappeared. The New York Jets divorced Tebow in the worst way possible, on purpose. Later that week, Washington Wizards player Jason Collins admits he’s gay. I watch ESPN everyday and I must say I haven’t heard much of Tebow’s horrendous departure from the Jets – instead I’m hearing about Jason Collins.

So why do I love this so much? In a way it shows that people are moving away from religion – something that, on paper (and unfortunately in practice a lot of the time), rejects and outcasts people because of their sexual orientation, creed, religious beliefs, gender, nationality – the list goes on and on. The younger generations are much more acceptant of the LGBT community than any other before them and are actually fighting side by side with them to ensure the LGBT community has the same rights as straight/heterosexuals have. They’re more dismissive of religion and more concerned about what they feel is right and wrong – not what a book tells them should be right or wrong. And that gives me hope.

Stiletto Nails

Stiletto Nails

I’m not really sure where to start with this latest trend of getting “stiletto nails,” so I’m just going to do what I’m best at, and that is give my honest opinion: It’s stupid.

 

I’m not really sure when having cat woman nails became popular, nor do I care, but this stiletto nails trend should stop. Like immediately. It seems like every time I log onto Pinterst or Instagram there are more and more pictures of these ridiculous nails. Where do I begin?

  • They’re stupid

  • They’re sharp

  • Women with sharp objects are bound to hurt themselves, or even worse, me

  • These MUST get in the way of…how should I say it? “Extracurricular activities”

  • I certainly wouldn’t want to get frisky with a woman that has knives as nails – please refer to points 2 and 3.

  • They look ridiculous

  • You’re not special or cool because every other female is doing it too

Am I the only one that thinks this?

Dove Real Beauty Sketches Shows How Women Are Their Own Worst Critics

The other night I came across a tweet about “Dove Real Beauty Sketches” – It was like 3 in the morning and I was about to finally doze off so I figured why not see what it was all about. I had no idea what to expect or what this was even going to be about. But I do know that if you hadn’t seen this video before, I had the same reaction as you – mouth agape, eyebrows raised and thinking to myself “wow!” I actually watched the video 3 or 4 times back to back because I was so amazed. I immediately realized that this marketing campaign could quite literally save lives by opening the eyes of women who are self-conscious, depressed, have low self esteem or have a combination of all three.

 

This marketing campaign and commercial is one of the best I’ve ever seen in terms of raw, unequivocal emotion. It has such an intense realness to it – one you can see on these women’s faces when they see how the other person described them. The differences between the two are worlds apart. I will be the first to admit that I can say things that most people would consider to be mean or brash about women’s appearances, but what people fail to realize is that just because I don’t find you attractive, doesn’t mean you’re not and doesn’t mean that other people won’t/don’t find you attractive. One person not being attracted to you does not equate to “you’re not beautiful.” I know it’s cliché, but I truly do believe every single woman on this planet is beautiful – and they’re beautiful in a billion different ways. It’s time for women to start realizing their own beauty, seeing their own beauty and owning it…and Dove’s Real Beauty Sketches campaign is a hell of a way to start.
