What food works best for your dog is always a question asked by every dog owner more than once. I recently switched Sophie to Acana, a grain-free brand that was named the #1 brand in 2016. ACANA Duck & Pear Singles Formula Grain-Free Dry Dog Food is what I choose and since using it Sophie hasn’t had any digestive problems. I do give her a probiotic supplement, Plaque-off to help keep plaque off her teeth, and just recently, as a preventive measure, she is getting a glucosamine supplement since she’s 11 years old.

There are lots of sites online that discuss balanced diets for pets and comparisons of foods. has a very extensive article about this topic as does a article that discusses and rates different brands of dog foods. Check them out and see how your dog food compares to the 2017 best of list.

How about a nice bow tie for the holidays. Or reverse it for a special occasion pawty. What a nice gift for foster pup Major Ranger. He chose to wear the red side for his Christmas festivities.

Turquoise and leather was the request for beautiful Molly Girl. So we combined turquoise howlite stones, braided leather in chocolate and turquoise with silver accents. Thank you Molly for sending this gorgeous picture of you showing off your new bling. Enjoy!

Returning customer, Jezebel loves turquoise.

This is her 2nd piece of SophiesBling made with turquoise dyed howlite. Why use howlite instead of real turquoise you ask? Well, for one, it enables us to keep the price of SophiesBling very reasonable. Howlite is the natural webbing that occurs in nature and it is almost identical to the webbing in natural Turquoise. Since this webbing is basically impossible to manufacture it is easier to use an existing mineral that has the same properties. Howlite is dyed to look very similar to the beautiful turquoise color.

The bling is strung on 49 strand soft touch, stainless steel nylon coated flex wire. Sterling silver crimp covers are on either side of the silver magnetic clasp #9469. These clasps fold over and have a strong magnetic closure that will hold alot of pull and weight! Easy to open and close. Lead Free
