Puppy Love

As the proud (and frequently over-whelmed) mama of Max, our 130 lb Yellow Lab/Donkey mix, I am happy to have come up with some fun doggie products for our four-legged BFFs. I call it my Birch Bark line and it is dedicated to the gentle, soothing, tender care of our pups.

I was so flattered and happy to get to send a Puppy Pack to Carrie~Gigi at Under the Willow a few weeks ago. Then came an order from Trisha at Suds to Love. It's extra special to send orders to my blog-friends because I think they are so super sweet, funny & talented. You can read the extra generous blog post that C~G wrote about her order here.

So here are a couple of items from the line. I offer Birch Bark Dog Wash in 5 great scents. Perfect Pooch is a great blend of Rosemary & Peppermint. Then we have the New England Sampler with a nod to this great part of the country. Those fragrances include: Nantucket Hound, Portland Pointer (could apply to all of you sweeties in the NW, too!) Green Mountain Rover & Fenway Fever Retriever. (GO SOX!!) The wash is gentle on the skin and eyes of our pooches. Although, I wouldn't wash near their eyes just in case!

Shake! is a great Dry Dog Shampoo. It's perfect for a quick freshen up for your dog. It's an All Natural blend of botanicals & EO's. You'll enjoy some great quality time as you shake it on and rub it all over your Rover. :) Wait a couple of minutes and brush/vacuum it off and he/she's smelling sweet and needing a treat! They are all on Etsy and ready to pamper your pup!!

I love my Birch Bark shampoo you have sent, and apparently so does everyone else in the family....I have some "Perfect Pooch" snatchers around here...The shampoos quietly have been going out the door...one "paw" at at a time....And I'm not kidding!

And HEY they were going to be gifts.... Dog Nap-it :)

Okay, don't laugh- Mr. Max is really not part donkey- is he? But really I don't think I have ever heard of a lab so BIG! :)

Great pics!

I can't wait to get the shampoo... Roscoe is long over due for a bath, and let's just say bribing still doesn't work well. I think I'm going to try peanut butter on the shower wall to get him in this time, usually I use a treat which he grabs and runs:-) Howie on the other hand, cannot get enough water and stands relatively calmly, although he loves to drink the water while he's having the bath.

Thanks so much, ladies! I can't help but love Max and all of his four legged buddies! Seems like they all deserve a little spa moment once in awhile!

Big hugs to both of you for your orders and your kind words! You are both so very sweet!!

Wow! We like your blog and we got one too! So you made shampoo for dogs? We want to try it! We NEED to try it! With mud season in full force (I'm sure you guys know!) here. Ollie is getting SOO dirty it's hard to handle!
Max is pretty big...

This is so great! Thanks for including our “four-legged-BBFs” in the soaping world. I love the idea of pampering our pups and I have a feeling this is going to be a big hit!

Thanks, Anne-Marie! It's funny how much people like to spoil their pooches! (Carrie~Gigi & Trisha! :))
I do it too, though. I love the Shake! because bathing Max means I'm in for a puppy bath, too!

I'll definitely be getting some of that doggie shampoo soon. Gali STINKS right now; she caught a chipmunk today and was rolling on it all morning. Yuck. She gets a lot of baths in the summer.
