Dogs are man's (and definitely woman's) best friend and we take them everywhere we can. To get them to fun destinations a vehicle is usually involved and with dogs being dogs things can get pretty dirty. Let's say you take a trip to the dog park and your dog is completely filthy after romping around with his buddies in the mud. You look at your dog, you look at your car. A towel on the seat isn't going to cut it this time. What's a dog parent to do? Thankfully 4Knines® has you and your car seats covered so you don't have to fret over muddy pawprints.

Wow guys, 2 years! We have been doing this for so long you think I would have it down pat, right? Haha well, in reality, I am always learning. As we look back to some of our favorite product reviews, I want to say that when I started The Chesnut Mutts it was partly because I was out of school and work because of migraines and now I am back in the workforce, volunteering for a local animal rescue, doing The Chesnut Mutts, and also my other blog Healing Whiskers. I have a lot of hats and migraines are still in my life but they are not a huge factor anymore.

I am so thankful for that and I am SUPER thankful for all of you! Your comments and such keep me going, and I know it has been slow this past month, but we are still here ;).

Now let's look at our Blogiversary prizes, shall we? We have 13 amazing brands who are giving away prizes which all total up to just over $750! WOW! Feel free to enter as many or as little as you'd like - If you win one, you can still win more!

Ticks. These bloodsucking creatures are no good in the pet world (unless you keep pet ticks. If that's the case that is pretty cool.) and can cause the transmission of diseases such as Lyme disease. If you are like me and live in a rural area surrounded by trees and deer (and also a forester for a dad) you probably have seen a few attached to your dog or even on yourself. So what's the best way to remove these suckers? We have the answer for you: TickEase®!

I don't know what it is about grass, but a lot of pets love it. It's a tasty snack that helps with digestion by adding a bit of fiber to the diet. What if your pet likes grass, but they can't go outside or you are worried about lingering pesticides? Yuppy Puppy City Kitty has the solution to that with their City Kitty Garden!

Goodbye, My Baby Boy...


It has been such a hard month for us. Not sure as to why. Call it a part of a great big plan as you will.

Death is not fair. Death is ugly. It makes you cry those ugly tears no matter how strong you are. Unfortunately, it happens very often and is a part of life.

Raw feeding is all the rage and has become one of the best options in nutrition for your pup. But it does get messy and complicated when it comes to preparing it. This is where freeze-dried comes in! This preserves the nutrients and all you have to do is add water. I love these types of raw food as it is so convenient. One of our readers suggested the brand we are reviewing today!

Raising Funds for Jake's Leg Amputation Due to Cancer


A few weeks ago Jake started limping with a gash in his wrist. Thinking he just got into something and hurt himself, we put him on antibiotics and waited a week. There was little to no improvement so a vet visit was in order.

Cat litter is a part of everyday life for a cat parent and it can be a stinky part of having a feline in the house. I have had cats ever since I was little starting with a stray I named Noggin, then Shasha, and now we have Shipoopi, Mr. Kitty, and Smooshie in our household. Dumping a heavy box of dusty litter and then having the ammonia smell waft around even though you just replaced the litter is frustrating and I'm glad Lucy Pet Products™ is doing something about it.

Let's face it. When you have pets, your house can get pretty smelly. With 5 dogs, 3 cats, and 2 rats (Tyrone the aquatic snail doesn't smell too much in his aquarium) odors can pile on pretty fast, but the usual cleaning products are filled with chemicals that can irritate our pets' respiratory system and even cause allergic reactions. We have recently found a great brand called Fresh Wave® who's changing the way us pet parents make our home smell a bit better!

When it comes to giving gifts to pet parents it can be kind of tough, especially with those with unique pets or mixed breeds. It's like finding your name on one of those keychains you get when you go on vacation. "No Jada, Shipoopi, or Delmar? I mean, come on!" This week we are looking at a very creative and personalized gift you can make at home for yourself, or gift to your favorite pet parent. Introducing...PaintaPic!

Ear issues have been a common occurrence with Miss Jada ever since she was little. The culprit for her is allergies and thankfully we have them mostly under control, but daily care is needed. At night, I drown her ear canals with alcohol to prevent any more infections, but after baths, I like to use something a little more gentle. Let's look at a great companion to our previous review of BVH Pet Care Premium Shampoo and Conditioner by looking at BVH Pet Care Premium Dog Ear Cleaner!
