Sweet, sweet Heather lost her owner to cancer.

She is the talk of the doggie park. Full of life and charm. She loves her daily trips to the park and gets along with everyone. She plays with her foster brother and lets him know that she is the senior in the pack. She has an instant alarm clock and will give out a short woof when it is time to get up. She loves her two cat mates and enjoys playing with her squeaky toys. Heather has a beautiful coat and is so willing to please. She is on a green bean diet to take off some weight but with the exercise plan she is on will have the weight off in no time.

She is good with other dogs, but needs a home without cats.  Eunice prefers to spend her time just lounging around. She is a true couch potato. Eunice is around 3 years old and is a big girl weighing over 96 pounds. Eunice came in with some skin issues, probably from fleas. With a good diet and some tlc, she will have a beautiful coat in no time! For more on Eunice, visit her profile page on Petfinder.com -  http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/24647351.

Domino

A real sweet heart this guy loves his people and is very happy being an only dog. He has on occasion gotten along with other dogs, but we feel it would be best for him to be an only child. He’s a big guy who isn’t going to stay put in an unfenced yard and when he gets out, small animals including cats are not safe around him. For more information about Domino visit him on Petfinder.com - http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/23230665.

Layla

Layla is an Olde English Bulldogge.

Review of Kinn Kudose Pill Concealer for Medicating Pets

January 5, 2013
The Kinn Kudose pill concealer base, bottle with apple/chicken baby food in it, and pill casings that will disintegrate when your dog eats it.

I recently had the opportunity to try out the Kinn Kudose pill concealer. When I first saw the product online I was a bit put off by the price. But when I got it in the mail I was pleasantly surprised. This isn’t some cheap flimsy product. It is very well made. And if you are medicating pets regularly, it is very useful.

At first I had a difficult time with it. One of the recipes it suggested was a peanut butter with oil recipe. It calls for smooth peanut butter and that is what I used. But I used Smucker’s Natural Peanut butter which is just peanuts and salt, no sugar or other additives. Even though it was the smooth variety, this particular brand was not as smooth as the peanut butters which have additives. So when I tried to squeeze it out of the Kudose bottle, it wouldn’t work. I guess the peanut chunks were too big and got stuck in the nozzle.

So I went and bought some baby food, which was another recipe Kudose suggested. It suggested chicken and gravy but I ended up buying sweet potato with turkey and apple with chicken. These worked very well and squeezed right out of the bottle. In fact, it came out so easily that the first pill I made was overfilled and I made a mess. But after making a couple more, I was able to make them quickly and easily.

Maya takes medication on occasion. I hate it when I try to hide the pill in soft cheese and she still manages to spit it out. Sometimes I would just skip the pleasantries and drop the pill in the back of her throat and close her mouth to make her swallow it. Not fun, but at least she ate her medication. But with the Kinn Kudose pill concealer, medicating Maya is 100x easier.

While the initial cost of getting the Kinn Kudose base dome and bottles might be considered pricy, it is a onetime cost and well worth it. The only other thing you would have to buy afterwards is more pill cases. These cases are just under $5 for over 100 of them.

The pill cases dissolve quickly so that the goodies and medicine you are putting inside gets digested by your dog. So you will want to make a pill as needed, not in batches. Simply open the empty pill casing and put the larger piece in the proper slot of the Kinn Kudose base. Put the medication in the casing. Then take the bottle of whatever goodie recipe you decide to use and set it directly over the pill casing onto the base. The attachment on the bottle makes it very easy to just simply set it and fit it over the top. Squeeze gently until the pill case is full, take the bottle away, then take the other piece of the pill casing and place it over the top.

After medicine is put in the pill and it is filled with the treat (in this case it is sweet potato/turkey baby food), put the pill together.

Ta da! In no time at all and no mess, you have a delicious tasting pill. Both my dogs gobbled it up!

Pierson really wants the pill from with the apple/chicken baby food in it.

Pinterest for Fun and Cute Dog Pictures

We just discovered this great place. It isn’t just about dogs, though. It is about everything… art, food, clothes, products, people, science, etc. But you can narrow down your pinterests so that you only see what you want to see. I have five pinterest categories which I look at, but the one I spend the most time on is pets!

Collect pictures from all around the web. These pictures are copyrighted so you can collect them on Pinterest to look at again and again without having to visit a website. But you can’t post them on your blogs unless you give credit to the original picture holder. You can find it by clicking through on Pinterest. And you can share them on Facebook.

My Dogs Maya & Pierson

Do your pets love each other? Are they best buds? Do they enjoy each other’s company? Share your photos with us by emailing them to naturebydawn@aol.com or by posting them on our Facebook page at

My dogs get along great. Sephi and Maya weren’t that close, but they got along okay. Their relationship was like sisters in that Sephi was the bossy older sister and Maya was the tag-along. Maya and Pierson’s relationship, however, is much closer. They are the perfect playmates. Both love to play and so both play all the time. It is fun watching them wrestle and they make me laugh when they steal each other’s toys. Sometimes they snuggle together, but not often because Pierson tends to get too hot too easily.

Be sure to tell us about your pets this Valentine’s Day!
