I'm thankful I have my digestion issues under control and I am very happy with my diet and lifestyle changes. Now that I know my discomfort in my leg/foot was an arch issue I am now working toward "fixing" the problem or at least living with it and working around it. I've been feeling consistently 90 to 95% better! With that in mind and moving forward - this week I hope to increase my physical activity - slowly and gently.
Towards the end of last week - she was 'fired up' when I got home...more than usual! She would run around the house and it was a wonderful sight to see!
In other Riley news...his ears are starting to bother him again, which isn't a surprise - every other month or so they tend to - so I will start in with some of his ear solution again this evening. The last medicated tube our one vet gave us seems to work better than the others and in less time!
Once again we found some great deals on Dog Sweaters at BigLots this past weekend! They were $4 or less so we grabbed a few for Paco! Someone told me he "looked very dapper" in this one!
That put a smile on my face! Dapper!
Paco has gotten to really like his sweaters! He's not fond of the Snuggie, tho, but these type of sweaters...he LOVES. In these photos you will be able to see parts of "Daddy" in them. Pardon the "ashtrays" in this background...no...they are NOT mine...I do NOT Smoke! Just HAD to add that disclaimer!
This was just 'by chance' lighting! No filter or anything. I LOVE the little collar but it won't stay up.
I also have been 'washing' Paco's eyes, too, I think between his tears and Riley's ears it's due to weather changes a little, too!
This is one of the longer sweaters Paco has now! Even tho the 'body' fits on the other ones they aren't as long! But he still likes them!
We have multiple nick-names for all of our furkids. One of the many for Paco is "Chi Monkey"...well, because he's a Chi (Chihuahua) and because he's a little monkey - he runs, jump, hops, and climbs EVERY WHERE!
So when we saw this sweater we KNEW we HAD to get it for him! Of course it doesn't hurt it has Syracuse Orange colors in it! You can see it even better in this next photo, tho!
I do have a lot on tap for this week! It's Irish Foods Week, for one! Plus I have LOTS of new products to share with you! I'm so excited! I have more giveaways this week, too!
My husband's Grandmother gave me a Waffle Iron and I hope to post some Vegan Waffle's SOON as well!
One thing I want to mention today, is one of the many Raw Revolution Bars I have been chomping lately! Today I want to share with you the Almond Butter Cup Flavor!
Organic Almonds, Organic Dates, Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Sunflower Seed Kernels, Organic Chocolate Chunks (Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Chocolate Liquor, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Soy Lecithin, Organic Vanilla Extract), Organic Sprouted Flax Seed, Organic Sea Salt. Contains Tree Nuts, Chocolate Chunks made in a facility that handles milk. PEANUT-FreeCheck this out! This bar packs a lot of great stuff in a small bar, doesn't it!? When I first bit into the bar I LOVED that I could taste the Vanilla and Almond Flavor right away! It seems the older I get the more I enjoy that little bit of Vanilla Flavor in things. The BIG chunks of 'chocolate' are awesome! They are randomly placed throughout the bar and are not over-done but certainly fits the bill with those who may have a sweet tooth! I love the nuttiness and the chewiness is great, too, the texture is perfect! The Dates give it that wonderful sweetness and it's gently salted. The flavor ratio of sweet, fruity, salty, chewy, nutty couldn't have been more perfect! This is a terrific bar!
