You Are a Lion! and Other Fun Yoga Poses

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for preschoolers, November 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This simple book features charming illustrations of a diverse group of children engaging in a series of seven yoga poses.
Each features a two-page set up that lends itself to guessing:
"Stand with feet flat. Bend and touch ground. Bottom up! You are a... (next page) DOG. Stretch in the sun. Bark at your friend, ready for fun."

It should be noted that the children in the book look very young, making the book better suited for toddlers and preschoolers but a little too "babyish" for older kids. I wish that I could find a similar title with illustrations geared towards 6 - 9 year olds!


Smucker's Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping 7.25 Oz. Chocolate Pretzel Flavor 3-pack
Smucker's Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping 7.25 Oz. Chocolate Pretzel Flavor 3-pack

1.0 out of 5 stars Skip this flavor!, October 20, 2015
Sure, it's shockingly synthetic, but it's a flashback to childhood to have chocolate-y Magic Shell on a bowl of ice cream once in awhile.
Chocolate pretzel flavor sounded like a good salty-sweet treat but this stuff is awful!

For some unexplained reason it smells like dry dog kibble and tatstes like one might imagine that dog kibble might taste.
It also separates very easily and requires LOTS of shaking to reach the proper consistency.

My advice: Skip this one, and just sprinkle some crushed pretzels on top of the regular chocolate flavor!

3.0 out of 5 stars Define "no pull"..., October 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We adopted a medium-sized dog who was collar-reactive. A review of the rescue's records showed that she had experienced neck trauma, arriving in a too-tight collar that had cut into her neck to the point that it had to be removed by a vet. Her anxiety level with any collar pressure was extreme, so we opted for a harness to help her learn to walk on a leash.

We started out with the Freedom No-Pull harness and were very pleased with the dog's natural responsiveness to it, but would like a padded harness for longer walks.

We were on the fence between this Chai's Choice harness and the Ruffwear harness. The Ruffwear had our preference of colors and had great customer reviews, but this harness specifically claimed to be "no pull". I assumed that it would give some feedback to a pulling dog, like the Freedom harness does.

It turns out that this harness is almost identical to the Ruffwear harness.. Other than a ring attached to the front of the harness, there is nothing to discourage pulling.
Thankfully our dog is at the phase in her training where pulling has decreased and she's getting the idea of loose lead walking, as long as no squirrels cross our path! If there is a close-range squirrel encounter, however, it becomes a matter of sheer strength to wrestle with her as she comfortably strains against this harness (and leash and leader) with all her might!

It's not a bad harness, but if I had it to do over again I'd just go with the Ruffwear and/or keep looking for a true "No Pull" harness for high risk walks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Detergent cleans, but fragrance stinks!, October 19, 2015
It seems like almost every review for this product so far is from someone who received a free product in exchange for a review.
I did not. I bought these at the store because they seemed like an easy option for an extended road trip.

They are exceptionally easy to use and they get the clothes pretty clean.
They can melt when stored at high temperatures, so don't plan to stock up and keep the extras in the summer garage! (Or travel with them packed in a hot car!)
The label warns to protect them from heat, so no stars were deducted for the melting.

However, the scent of these is really odd and off-putting. It smells like flowers mixed with over-ripe apples, and it is very strong. I'm not a fan, and would expect an apple scent to be labeled "Harvest", or "Orchard" or some other tell-tale clue. Who wants to smell like cider all day? I'd love to see these in Febreze's Linen & Sky or Meadow & Rain, instead of this cloying, not-so-fresh scent!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great shaver except for flimsy head., August 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good close shave and great battery life. Unfortunately, the foil is very thin when compared to higher end shavers and damages very easily. Plan to handle it very gently, as any small bump or bounce can ruin the foil and render the shaver unusable. Replacement heads are available, and at the time of this review cost about $25. In the long run, you may end up paying the price of a higher end shaver to keep this one running.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, not great., August 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Used this carpet spray on light-colored Berber. It does well with food stains and general soil, but isn't so great with pet stains.
It leaves a slight, greasy residue when used according to the label. For our carpet, we've had better luck with Bissell Pro Spot & Stain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Low tech, but highly efficient, August 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Our carpet is light-colored Berber, so every bit of yard debris tracked in by pets and people tends to show.
This sweeper makes it a breeze to touch up high traffic areas without hauling out the noisy vacuum. It's quick and easy to use and simple to empty.
I also love that the stable base allows it to tuck away in a corner or closet, without having to prop it on anything.

2.0 out of 5 stars No mold or mildew, but RUST!, August 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We've had this curtain hanging for about three months. The good news is that it is still crystal clear and odor free, without a trace of mold or mildew.
The bad news is that the metal grommets at the top of the curtain are heavily caked with rust, which is now streaking down the liner on one side and bleeding onto the fabric shower curtain on the other. A bargain liner isn't such a bargain if it ruins the expensive shower curtain!
By comparison, our stainless steel shower curtain rings are still rust free except for what has transferred off of the grommets. Next time, I'll look for a liner that has plastic or stainless steel grommets.

2.0 out of 5 stars Formula change? Or fake?, July 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Reading the reviews, I have to wonder if all of the black (extreme) Kongs being sold on Amazon are authentic, or if some second party sellers are peddling knock-offs.
The Kong we received has a headache-inducing reek - like hot car tires.
It is also sticky to the touch and leaves a black, crayon-like smudge if rubbed across paper.
I've washed it twice and will let it air out for awhile, but I don't feel confident giving it to my dog as is. Everything about the toy screams "TOXIC!" and it isn't at all like the older, worn-out black Kong it was purchased to replace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Piggy is the champ!, July 11, 2015
This review is from: Mighty Massive Farm Piglet (Misc.)
Our large terrier mix dearly loves plush toys, but she shreds them quickly. This year, she has annihilated a couple of Kong plush toys that claimed to be extra tough, a well-reviewed soft West Paw toy, several of the "unstuffed" toys that promised to be extra durable, and one made of ballistic nylon labeled as indestructible.

This pig is the one and only survivor. We're on 4 months and counting, and it endures daily abuse sessions of tossing, pouncing and gnawing before she finally takes it to bed for a nap. The tail was gone in the first 10 minutes and one ear is in tatters, but, other than that, it is holding up great! She often sneaks it through the dog door to the yard so it has been through the washer and dryer weekly. It comes out looking clean and ready to go every time.

When her precious "Piggy" finally wears out, we'll be ordering another one!

Update: RIP, Piggy. Piggy made it 8 months with our aggressive chewer, which is far and away a record. We'll order another one.
