I really do love these Whale decals! They are too cute! Yes, I love all ocean mammals but that isn’t the reason. These are just really adorable! If I had a Nursery, I would do a whole nautical theme and use these decals. I do have a beach themed bathroom and I loved adding these Whales on the bathroom door and walls. I like that they stick so easily on any surface and quickly too! They also don’t leave any residue when you remove them. I love the bright colors and they are just too cute!! I know, I know..I already said that. But, it’s so true! These are the cutest wall decals I have ever owned!

Each package includes 5 whales, each measuring approximately 4” x 5”, and are available in 4 colors (baby blue, azure blue, charcoal grey, and turquoise).

You can purchase them on Amazon.com.

We have teamed up for a giveaway! One winner will win their own Bobee Whale Decals.To enter, leave a comment below telling us where you would like to use these adorable decals! Deadline to enter is November 17, 2014 at noon PST. One winner will randomly be selected from all entries!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Senior Pet Month Helpful Tips from Bil-Jac! Giveaway Opportunity!

BilJac-Logo-HighRes

Did you know that it is Senior Pet Month? Here are some helpful tips and advice from our friends at Bil-Jac!

  1. What are 6 ways to support your senior dog’s health?
  • Feed a high-quality diet that provides protein for muscle mass. Providing a high-quality diet, like Bil-Jac Senior Select Dry Dog Food, helps to maintain healthy muscle. Eating a diet specially formulated for mature dogs can help support your dog’s overall health.
  • Keep your dog’s weight in check. Share that people can visit Bil-Jac’s Learning Library online at Bil-Jac.com and view Bil-Jac’s Pet Obesity chart to find the healthy weight of their pup.
  • Activity – both physical and mental stimulation with training.
  • Keep those teeth clean. Dental disease can result in your dog losing teeth and having a difficult time eating, further risking your dog’s health. Be proactive and brush once a day and keep those teeth where they belong.
  • Thoughtful accommodations. As your best friend matures, he may have a more difficult time getting up the stairs or into the car. Being patient with him and assisting him will help keep him safe yet allow him to continue to do the things he likes to do.
  • Regular veterinarian visits. Taking a trip to see the doctor on a regular basis is even more important to your maturing dog. Your vet can be a valuable source of advice. Many veterinarians can run a panel of tests on your senior dog. This can help you treat any issues earlier on, proactively helping your dog to live a long, healthy life.
  1. What are some reasons people should consider adopting a senior dog?
  • They’ve had time to fine-tune their manners.
  • You can teach an old dog new tricks. In fact, many think senior dogs are more trainable than puppies.
  • They’re comfortable with who they are and, typically, what you see is what you get.
  • They’re past the chewing and middle of the night walk stages.
  • They Settle in Quickly: Older dogs have been around the block and already learned what it takes to get along with others and become part of a pack. They’ll be part of the family in no time!
  • They Enjoy Easy Livin’: An older dog won’t have as high-energy as a young dog who will run you ragged. Not that older dogs don’t require any exercise—they do—but they’re not going to need, or want, to run a marathon every day.
  1. What are some tips for people looking to adopt a dog from a shelter?
  • Shelters receive new dogs every day; keep coming back if your best friend isn’t found on your first visit.
  • Most shelter dogs are house trained and do not require extensive retraining.
  • Some shelter dogs were dropped off simply because of their age. A senior dog can be calm and well behaved, which may be a perfect match for you.
  • Love and attention could be all it takes to turn an abandoned dog into your new best friend.
