Apple Cider Vinegar

Posted on Wednesday, 24 July 2013

Being a flat faced pooch with lots of skin folds, I tend to suffer from quite bad tear staining. I have tried various things in the past; olive oil, sudocrem, shop bought tear stain removers... But nothing really worked. 

Then mum read about Apple Cider Vinegar which supposedly neutralises the reddish colour and makes the tears come out clear. I've been having a teaspoon of it daily in my water bowl for the last two months and my dog, has it made such a difference!!! And I don't even mind the taste!

I highly recommend this. Mum says it's so cheap compared to other methods and very easy to use ;)


I don't like this heat :(

It's too hot out. My half hour walks have turned to five minute walks. Mum keeps putting me in the bath and soaking me with cool water. I've had a horrible upset tummy which required a trip to the vets, tablets and this horrible paste that makes me pull funny faces.

I'm excited about my pooch pack though, which should be arriving any day soon! This will be my first one and I can't wait to see what they've sent me. Check back as I shall be doing a review on it.


Fridays Frenchie Find

Posted on Friday, 12 July 2013

Starting today, every Friday I'm going to list my Favourite Frenchie finds! (Try saying that quickly 5 times!)

As it's summer, mum and myself really like this CANVAS BAG

What's not to like?! It's covered in pictures of her favourite breed AND it's big enough to fit ALL my toys in to take to the beach with us


Goodbye pink nose

Posted on Thursday, 11 July 2013

A couple of months ago, I started to lose the pigment on my nose. The silly vet said it would go completely pink and I'd never have a black nose again. Good thing my mum knows better.

You can see in this rather gorgeous photo of me just how pink my nose really got. It's not uncommon for dogs to lose the pigment on their nose. Some noses will change colour with the seasons. This is known as 'Snow Nose'. As long as the nose was black to begin with, you can always get the pigment back.

After speaking to a very helpful lady who works at Dorwest, we purchased their Elderberry & Nettle Extract for £13.40 and I have been having a quarter of a teaspoon every day for the last 2 months. Mum just adds it to my kibble. We purchased the 125ml bottle which will have lasted us just under 3 months (we still have a quarter of the bottle left).

Grumpy as hell but I wanted to show you guys how my much my darker my nose has gotten. I reckon in a months time my nose will be completely black again.

I shall do a post at some point listing all of the supplements I take and the reasons I take them as they have all improved my health and appearance so much!

Compare the two photos again and look at just how much my tear stains have improved! You'll have to watch this space if you want to know my secret. Until next time... x
