Spring flowers already? It’s snowing

March 1, 2008 009There is a Nor’easter outside but, the first spring mini daffodils bloomed  inside. 
March 1, 2008 010 Costco had this set of four glass vases with bulbs.  The bulbs sit on plastic trays so they are not completely in the water.   We didn’t expect to see a bloom for weeks.

Got a stinky dog? A quick winter solution


Okay, it’s winter and it’s cold so giving Rover a bath outside is out of the question and, quite frankly you’re a bit embarrassed to take him to a groomer since he stinks so badly.

To freshen smelly dogs fast we like  Lani "Beach" scented  body spray.      

If company is arriving in 3 minutes by all means give Rover a spray or two.

If you have 5 minutes, give Rover a quick brush and then spray.

For best results follow these steps:

1.  Give your dog a thorough brushing.  

2.  Wipe away eye crust with a cotton cosmetic pad or soft cloth moistened with warm water.  Do not use cotton balls or swabs (Q-tips)  around the eyes. Stray fibers from a cotton ball may land in the eye causing irritation and you could accidentally poke your dog in the eye with the swab.

3.  Clean your dog’s ears with a cosmetic pad moistened with rubbing alcohol or a cleanser especially for that purpose. Some also use a 50-50 mix of white vinegar and alcohol. Wearing rubber or latex gloves is a good idea. It can be messy as well as stinky.  Being gentle and not using cotton swabs (Q-tips) is essential to prevent injury to your dog’s ear canal.    1187495228221-242725769

4.  Spray your dog with Lani “Beach Body Spray” made with 100% natural ingredients and approximately 65% organic. 

5. Sniff your dog!  Bonus you can use Lani sprays year round between baths and never wake up to a stinky dog again. We hear some owners even dab themselves for a double blast of fresh!

Pick up some Lani dog shampoo’s, conditioners and sprays at  Beach & Bauble or Lani "dig your dog" . A clean dog is a happy dog!

Lani sprays are intended to freshen your dog and help soothe and moisturize their coats between regular baths.  Beach scent is also available in a shampoo and conditioner

Common sense: Avoid getting any Lani products in your dog’s, eyes, ears, mouth and nose.
