When you're 4' 11" and 125 lbs. it's hard to hold onto a 70 lb. puppy when they don't want to do what you want them to do. Our new dog, Mandy, doesn't like to go in the car. In fact, she'll drag me back to the door to get in the house or hide around the front of the house until I give up.
I had to take her to the vet for spaying and she fought me all the way to the car. We started out by the front door and I got behind her. It was pouring rain and the eaves were dripping water as we stood there, neither of us giving in. I inched her along the front of the house for an hour until we got to the corner and there was nowhere else for her to hide. She moaned, gave up, and got in the car.
All this time I had a leash and a choke collar on her. I'm sure it was very uncomfortable for her but that was all that I had until I got this harness. She's a bit skittish with it but I'm able to hold her next to me and guide her to the car more easily. Since she's still rebelling at times, we are using the training collar at the same time. At least, I don't feel as if I am strangling the poor thing.
The harness is made of lightweight padded and washable material that is strong enough to contain my dog. It is fully adjustable but I got the XL size because she's still growing. She seemed very comfortable when I strapped it on her. In fact, she just stood still and let me take her picture. I'm amazed. It's worth the money when they behave. Good product.

Here's a great Father's Day gift...a wireless Bluetooth headset. My husband loves it!
He works construction all day and loves to listen to music to make the time go faster. He also mows our five acres of the lawn while listening to tunes.
With this unit, he was able to unpackage it, turn it on, fit into his ears, pair it with his iPhone, and he was listening to Black Betty in less than two minutes. Right now, he has it plugged into his computer to completely charge the battery with the enclosed USB cord. It will be ready to go in the morning for work.
The sound is crystal clear and since I play bass, I love the heavy bass sound, especially when the drums come in on the song.
The buds are lightweight and come with some additional sized buds so that you can adjust the headset comfortably in the ear. The over-the-ear extension ensuring a snug fit so that they do not fall out of the ear with a lot of movement.

I have wanted whiter teeth for a long time. I was beginning to think that my only option was to get more crowns or to go for the newer option of replacing all of my teeth. But that is cost prohibitive.
So I thought I'd try this new charcoal powder to see if it really works. It's called "activated charcoal powder with coconut and xylitol." I've only been able to use it for a few days and am pleased with the results. It's difficult to get my teeth back to the original color that I want because of all of the crowns that I have and since I have aged, my teeth aren't able to be restored to a younger look.
Take care of your teeth while you are young and you will save yourself time, money, and pain.
The downside of the charcoal powder is the application. Just a little bit of the powder is needed but it is so messy that I have to clean my sink afterward. If you've ever touch charcoal briquettes, you will understand how charcoal just clings to everything.
Also, since the charcoal is in your mouth, your mouth will be blackened, I always follow up with toothpaste so that I don't scare anyone.
The product works well as you can see in my picture, that my teeth have become closer to the color of my original crowns. It's just a messy process because of the material. It is also vegan and gluten-free. The properties of charcoal may also kill unwanted bacteria.

Need to protect your furniture from your animals? Then check out this micro-suede quilted cover for your couch, loveseat, or chair. It's very well constructed. The design has built-in clips and a securing strap so that the cover doesn't shift when your dog jumps up on the furniture and stays in place.
It is not advised for leather furniture. Purchase here.

Still having issues with concealed carry holsters? Here's one that I like because I'm short and it's fully adjustable for my 27" waist.
This belly band holster is made from foam for comfort and flexibility but it doesn't wrinkle down as you wear it for the day. The closure fixes to stay where you want it. There are two front pockets with velcro straps, one for your gun and the other is sized for a cell phone or something similar in size. On the back of the band, there are two pockets with velcro closures for your spare clips.
It's crafted very well and on my short body it fits above my hips. When my husband wears it with his bigger belly, it fits around his waistline better.
It's ideal for me when I wear baggier sweaters to conceal my carry.
My husband would like this for when he goes hunting or when he wants to carry more than one weapon at a time.

Don't you just love a foot massage? I would like one daily but alas, my husband has to work. So I got one of these Deep Tissue Spiky Massage Balls. The ball is about 2.5 inches and has spikes all over it. It's not made of a soft plastic but it could be squashed, especially if my dogs find it.
The instructions are to roll it over the targeted area to relieve tightness in muscles and sore tissues, encourage blood and oxygen flow. It's a handy size that you could take it with you on vacation, to a sports activity, or to work.
I used it on my feet just to relieve the tight muscles so that I don't get a foot cramp in the middle of the night or after wearing high heels for a long time but you can use it on most parts of your body.

If your feet hurt, your whole body aches. The feet are the basis of balance for your body and support the weight. When you have arch pain or heel spurs, you will have trouble walking and also, your emotions will be fluctuating with the pain.
Here is a set of Plantar Fasciitis Arch Support Braces and Heel Pain Silicone Gel Insoles. They are flexible but maintain their shape when in use. The arch supports have a Velcro closure to secure them to the arch but in a comfortable soft way. The heel cups are clear silicone with a blue center to give your heels a cushion inside your shoes.
Even if you don't have any foot pain, these would be ideal to prevent injuries when you are very active in sports such as running or walking. They are easy to use and I would give them 5 stars for a great product that is made well.
