Kirby and I have been busy busy with working on our progress with larger dogs. The last couple days I have been taking him to the big dog side in the dog park in hopes of working him through his fears. Although Monday was a bit hit and miss, yesterday we went with our friend and her dog Savior (the American bulldog you might have seen last post) and headed out again. Kirby was to my delight very calm, and had no growls or teeth showings to the friendly large dogs that came to say hello to him. Every time he did interact nicely I made sure to let him know what a good boy he was being! As it was his first time meeting Savior, in the car as we headed there, he did give him some growling attitude, but by the end of the day, Kirby was just fine running alongside him, especially if treats were involved. Below is a quick picture I got of him and Savior’s bum is right behind him. Considering he was (by far) the smallest dog at the park today he did very very well. So yaay!
Also I have received in the mail after much wait a product I was looking forward to review, as they wanted it reviewed before April 4th in order for me and whoever wanted to purchase them to get in on the promotions that were going on. Unfortunately it did not arrive to me until today. I decided I was only going to still review it if the dogs and I really loved it. Well it kind of happened.
It is “Pet Naturals Breath bars”. I was hoping that Poe would take to these especially, as he has the worst dog breath known to……dog. I broke one in half giving the bigger one to Poe, and he went nuts for it! I have never seen him act so excited when receiving a treat, especially since he is a picky dog, so I was presently surprised when both Poe and Kirby to put it lightly devoured it and began following me around the house with the package till I found a good place to put it.
The bag came with 21 bars. And is said to “improve fecal quality, clean the blood, reduce the frequency of flatulence, and simply freshen breath. Now as I have just given them it today, I don’t know about the fecal quality, or blood (in which neither are issues anyways) but it did freshen Poe’s breath, A LOT more then what the other breath freshner treats we were using did. So for that reason and the reason Poe has seemed to react to them much like a cat with cat nip, I give them a thumbs up so far.

Also last but not least, I have been continuing volunteering at my local animal shelter, and have taken many pictures in hopes to show you just how special the dogs and experience has been thus far. I just want to make sure it is okay that I show the pictures of the animals there, with the co-ordinator, as it probably more polite to ask first, but hopefully by next week I’ll have a nice post and pictures so you guys can see them. There’s one pup there right now, who I just gave a half hour long walk, and an attempt to teach/ play fetch for another half hour, and would you believe after all that he was still doing laps around the play area! :) They are really lovely dogs, so hopefully I will get to share with you guys more about them by next week :)
