Tips for a Safe Pet Holiday
This will be our 2nd Christmas with our dog, Murphy. The good thing is that he’s pretty much done with all of that annoying puppy chewing and destroying of things that don’t belong to him…LOL! But that doesn’t mean that he won’t become curious with all of the the commotion going on during the holidays.
Keeping your furry family members safe during the holidays can be a difficult task. Many pet parents plan to include their furry companions in the festivities. This holiday season, it’s important to be mindful of your pet’s eating and exercise habits. Also, remember to steer pets clear from harmful toys and other gifts.

Derevos: Natural and Stylish Solution to Protecting Your Pet & Yourself!
This past Summer I took Murphy to get his usual face, feet & fanny trim. Came home with a puppy with less fur but more problems. He had a tick on him and fleas! Ugh! I searched all over Google for some tips and tricks to try and naturally get rid of those pests and nothing worked. Ended up buying one of those expensive collars but hated that it was so full of chemicals.
For many of us, our pets are more like family. They’re our best friends, companions, and keep our families from harm’s way- making it that much more important to keep them healthy and safe. And while we usually have only the best intentions when using flea and tick collars to keep pesky insects off of them, most don’t realize what kind of harsh chemicals we’re putting on our furry family members. In fact, the toxic sprays and repellents are incredibly dangerous, the pesticides commonly found in most flea collars often contain propoxur and tetrachlorvinphos (TCVP), which pose significant threats to both pets and humans.
Derevos is the revolutionary cedar wood pet collar for dogs and cats with powerful flea and tick repellent without harmful chemicals. Not only is cedar wood is the world’s natural defense against insects and fungus, but Derevos collars also boast stylish designs and pleasant aromas that pose no threat to pets or their families.
See why Derevos is quickly becoming the top choice of pet owners:
- Safe for pets and their families: Contains no harmful chemicals or poisons
- Long-lasting: Lasts two to three months, add a protection plan and be covered for 5 YEARS! You can also rejuvenate flea repellent by applying cedar oil to the collar
- No more plastic collars: Choose from several beautiful Eastern Aromatic Red and Siberian Cedar Wood designs
- Great for your pet and you: Derevos also offers bracelets and ankles. No more mosquito bites!
Murphy – The Prince of Separation Anxiety
*sigh* Last December we adopted Murphy just before Christmas. I knew it would be a great time to introduce a puppy to the family because the girls were out on Winter Break and we would all be able to get a schedule set before school started back.
From day one Murphy has loathed his crate. For 3 weeks straight we put him in it at night and he would whine almost the entire time and pee/poop in it…every.dang.night! -_- Yeah that got old pretty fast so I ended up letting him just hop up at the end of my youngest’s daughter’s bed at night. We all needed sleep and can you believe that little stinker slept all night without any accidents. I know all the experts and everyone and their momma is like “I’m not letting some dog in my room…let alone my bed”. When you haven’t had a good night’s sleep in a while, you say screw all that and do what works…LOL! [Read more…]
