Milk Bone Brushing Chews Review

20140415_21440020140415_214408This being a family blog, I’ve hardly ever touched on the unsung and yet just as important members of the family: the family dog. I have 2 personally, a black lab mix named Milo and a Jack Russell/Beagle mix named Duke. And these two, I value as much as my own 3 children (I call them my fur babies all the time).
Problem is, unlike real children, it is hard to keep up on their dental hygiene. How does one brush their teeth, keep their breath fresh, and keep their teeth strong and healthy until their ripe old age? We have tried many different treat-based options, and were left disappointed.

As oral hygiene is important for you, research has shown that it is just as important for your dog. Now, there’s an effective, easy and affordable solution to cleaning your dog’s teeth daily too – Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews™! Despite veterinarians’ recommendations for pet owners to practice regular brushing at home and schedule periodic professional teeth cleanings for their pets, more than 80 percent of dogs develop periodontal disease by 3 years of age, according to the American Veterinary Dental Society. Now, new Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews™ make your dog’s daily oral care as easy a routine as your own. And the good news is, when fed daily, Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews™ are clinically proven to be as effective as brushing a dog’s teeth twice per week based on reduction of tartar build-up and bad breath. Essentially, with Milk-Bone® Brushing Chews™, now your dog can brush its own teeth!

Then Milk Bone Brushing Chews showed up on our door, and immediately, we noticed a difference. I was provided a review product and gift and to purchase more brushing chews. My dogs and I love this product. These were treats that my dogs actually wanted to eat. After a few treats, I noticed my dogs had shinier, healthier-looking teeth and gums, and their breath did not send me running from the room. I can really see that, with repeated use, these treats will indeed improve their overall dental health.
I plan to use Milk Bone Brushing Chews exclusively from now on to assist in keeping my fur babies’ teeth shiny, their gums healthy, and their breath fresh for many years to come.

Book Review: Blissful Surrender Blog Tour

Book Description: This is a story of Sean Miller, a dom that will have your panties diving for cover with an eyebrow quirk. That will have even the strongest woman dropping to their knees in submission with a piercing stare, and Samantha Richards, a female cop who’s tough, seemingly impenetrable shell is strong enough to resist everyone except the one man it was build up to protect her against.

**Disclaimer – If you thought the first two Bliss books were hot, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Creative use of handcuffs, batons, a club scene you have to read to believe, and a tough as nails dominant who is blindsided when the one woman strong enough to disarm him threatens his resolve not to let his past dictate his future.**

Like the other books in the Bliss series, this book can be read as a stand alone. There are common characters in the books but it is not necessary to read the first two books in the series to read this one.blissful surrender_final cover

Blissful Surrender

My Thoughts: Ten years have past and they both cant move on from the one that got away.…. I don’t like to give the story away so you wont get any spoilers here. I will say that BJ Harvey develops these characters in a way where your heart bleeds for the couple who let someone get in-between and now years later they still cant let each other go. Samantha has been raised to believe letting any control go means your weak. Sean wants to show her how surrendering, at least in bed, isn't relinquishing control in fact it’s the opposite. She controls his heart and doesn’t even know it…
This book was a fun and fast read. Great for reading between errands or while waiting in a doctors office. If you are familiar with BJ Harvey’s Bliss series you will love reading about Samantha and Sean. And if you haven't read them like that’s ok too, as it says in the description they read like stand alone novels. I have a love/hate relationship with shorter novels. I love that I can breeze through then but I also hate how it leaves you wanting more! BJ Harvey definitely leaves you wanting to know more. If you pick up this book come back here and let me know what you thought of it!
I personally cant wait to read the other two books in this series and both are on sale now…
