VivaDogs

Vivadogs were very kind in sending a box for Rolo and I to review.

Rolo loved everything in the box, especially the Good Boy lizard toy.

 

In the box :

Kong Tennis ball – Rolo really liked this ball, mostly because it squeaks :D. This Kong ball has a special material that doesn’t break easily. And the material is not harmful on your dogs teeth.

Pigs guts Gloria – I didn’t get chance to take a picture of this as by time i got my camera Rolo had taken the chew and started eating it 😀 This was a natural dog chew, no additives and low in fat.

Sausage Biozoo – Rolo loves these little sausages. They are 100% homemade. They preserve all the authentic flavour & properties of the OX meat.

Lizard Armitage – Rolo absolutely loves this toy, he’s always playing with. A resistant toy that will hold many bites and pulls. Made from a special canvas material and a rope tail. I love that cheeky face it has 😀

Filled cereal snacks – Crunchy dental snacks perfect for refreshing Rolo’s mouth especially after those OX sausages 😀 The grain layers prevent tartar and the filling will give any pooch fresh breath with a scent of mint !

Thank you VivaDogs

Poop bags from Earth Rated… The cutest dispenser on the market is in the box this month. It has a convenient hook on the back that serves to hold the used bags. Say goodbye to not finding or losing bags when your outside. Includes a roll of 15 bags 🙂

All in all, Rolo is happy with everything. He absolutely loves the Beco ball. I’m going to get him a Beco bone and see if he’ll like that too. They have a good range of Beco products including bowls and frisbees.

Due to him having an operation last week we didn’t have time to have a look inside.

Today we had a look and there are some really great products inside and Rolo loved them.

RADICAL orange … A nice vibrant chew toy made from natural rubber. Prevents the formation of tartar build up.

STANFORD chicken necks … We all know that the taste for our furry friends is better when its more natural. They will love these chicken necks. Ideal for prizes 🙂

GEORPLAST frisbee … The classic game for your fog, but now it’s much stronger and with train like speed. What better way to start enjoying the sunny days like going to the park and playing with your dog and spending entertaining hours with this frisbee.

NILAQUA shampoo … Problems at bath time ? Would you not love to bathe your dog without water sometimes ? Yes, that’s what you read. With this shampoo you can bath your furry friend without water. Just apply it to the skin, massage it in to eliminate odors and dirt and then dry it off with a towel. Just like freshly out the salon 🙂

WILKO light snacks … Summer is coming. And our four-legged friend can also show off their beach look with these low-fat Wilko snacks. Who said tasty things make you fat !!

Day out at Crosby beach

Yesterday Myself, my partner and Rolo went to Crosby beach. We walked there from our house which took about an hour . We walked all the way across the beach, stopped off for a nice hot chocolate with marshmallows & cream and some chips too.

At Crosby beach there are a lot of Iron men. They are sculptures by Antony Gormley called ‘Another Place’.Another Place consists of 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread out along three kilometres of the foreshore, stretching almost one kilometre out to sea.

The Another Place figures – each one weighing 650 kilos – are made from casts of the artist’s own body standing on the beach, all of them looking out to sea, staring at the horizon in silent expectation.Having previously been seen in Cuxhaven in Germany, Stavanger in Norway and De Panne in Belgium, ‘Another Place’ is now a permanent feature in the UK, at Crosby Beach.

We also walked home from the beach, we did a total of 9 miles walking that day. How I managed it I don’t know. Little Rolo is a trooper. He loves walking and he did great to walk that far. We did carry him a few times though 😀

We saw one iron man with a t-shirt on that said ‘Be a match, save a life’. This is from the Anthony Nolan foundation. Please register, you could save someone’s life …  https://www.anthonynolan.org/
