Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

Eco-friendly pooch products giveaway!

I recently received an email about Opie & Dixie's new line of organic, sustainable pet care products and, even though I currently don't have any fuzzy critters in the house, I thought they would make for a great giveaway for those of you who do. All of their products incorporate herbs, oils, and essential nutrients designed with the help of veterinarians.

Debbie Guardian, the owner of this line of pet products, wanted to create products that do not contain any ingredient that she wouldn't use herself. All the products are organic, eco-friendly and sustainable, from the ingredients to the non-BPA packaging to product labels that are printed on recycled paper and made with a 100% wind-powered manufacturing process. In addition, a percentage of all retail sales go to a local dog rescue organization.

This giveaway includes:

Organic Ear Wash made with spring water, peppermint, and eucalyptus
Oatmeal Almond Shampoo for silky coats and skin health
Botanical Créme Rinse and Conditioner for hydrating skin and coat

If you would like to pamper your pooch, all you need to do to enter this giveaway is leave your name in the comments of this post and tell me about your furry best friend!

You have until midnight, Friday, August 20th, PST to enter. Winner will be chosen randomly.

Our dog, Jake, is an old man. In need of pampering ;-)

Amy Estrada said...

Catey the smelly beagle would not like any of these, but her non-furry family sure would love them for her!

Wabi-Sabi Wanderings said...

Our chicken chasing, poop eating, rolling in nasty stuff, water loving pup would greatly benefit from these lovely products.

Nico Hudson said...

I have a sharpei and a pug and these products would be extremely beneficial to them. My sharpei, Chuang-Tzu has very sensitive ears so the ear wash would especially helpful!

OOOOh, pick me Mr. Kotter!!! Jenny K. ;)

My friend just rescued a dog. I'd love to give her a gift.

Claire Brown said...

We've got two pooches that would love these products. Mini Me the Chihuahua and Peeka the Affenpinscher!

Annie said...

My dog is named Lily. She's a black mouth cur and she's about 4 years old, although we can't be sure since we found her as a stray. I love her so much!

Geek said...

I'm owned by an 11 year old Italian greyhound named Giovanni. He is my bestest little friend and would love the pampering.

Jenny said...

This is well timed! We just adopted a dog from the shelter last week! Her name is Lucy and we would love to try out some ecofriendly products on her.
Thanks for the chance to win!
Love your blog!

Hamlet the Sheltie and Ophelia the cat would benefit from the ear wash. Hamlet will endure a bath ok, but Ophelia has a dread of water!

Bullwinkle said...

My FWD (Fuzzy White Dog) would love to try some new ear cleaner. Aurora loves to dig (especially after it rains!)

bellananda said...

we've got two darling doggins, misha and sophie, who are mini schnauzers. sophie's been having an awful time with skin allergies this year, scratching up a storm no matter what i do -- and i wonder if misha's sudden appearance of a tear-y left eye (creating that awful streak of goopy red hair under her eye, making her look like she's constantly crying) is allergy-related, too (the vet doesn't know what to make of it). surely our switching to all-organic and sustainably-made products would help! :) thanks, crunchy!

D'aww, my sweet pooch would love to be pampered. Isis is part afghan and part..... (llama?) who doesn't think the world realizes how regal she is.

Yet she occasionally disguises herself as a pile of leaves, so one could see where the confusion is.

Diana R.Smith said...

My big fat Corgi Arthur is always looking for ear rescue....when his ears bother him he flaps his head and those ears make the wierdest sound....kids used to say he was getting ready for takeoff!!!

Right now he is shedding so that I can brush a dog out of him everyday! DEE

Camila F. said...

Oh, how lovely! My mother's cute poodle Billy would be very pleased to win this giveaway!

While my dog Rousseau hates baths, she could use these just the same - I'm just about out of her other natural bathing products! Rousseau is a rescued half Rottweiler, half Border Collie and is about 3 years old. She loves to cuddle, wrestle, herd, and catch flies :)

Anonymous said...

My border collie sure could use these. Earlier this summer, we ran out of dog shampoo and with my husband out of work, we have been using Dr. Bronners when necessary. Would like something that rinses out of fur easier for the upcoming fall rains.

My dog Kona is in desperate need of some natural products for her not so natural smell - she likes to roll around on the ground in anything dead. She's a lab cross so I have to clean her ears several times every week.
Pick me - pick me!

Christina said...

This would be great for our two dogs. We've had some problems with dry skin and the shampoo/creme rinse might solve that problem!

Crissy said...

Kona is a Border Collie/Lab mix with ball issues, Sophie is an English Shepherd with impulse control issues. They both smell and could use a good wash.

Love this giveaway! Count me in.

cindy24 said...

Thanks for the info on the puppies. One of my rescues can't walk and i have to give him a bath a couple times a week. My cocker mix would love to test the ear cleaner. I have always worried about the bright blue stuff. I should also try some natural products on my cat who was inbred and appears to be allergic to her hair when it grows too long.

Jake is our very loved and spoiled beagle...but he REALLY smells bad!!! Really ;o)

We'll try anything!

BarbCohen said...

I would love these for my dog, she has very sensitive skin. Barb

psmflowerlady said...

Our four-legged girls, Sadie & Gracie are terrier mixes from the shelter. I just trimmed them last night and wow! they could use these products! Gracie, especially has ear problems. What a nice giveaway - thanks for offering it!

we will be dog sitting Marley, a 9 year old Black Lab while our friends are on a 9 month sabbatical in India.

Jelly Bean said...

my charlie needs some eco loving!

Lisa Sharp said...

I have a Great Pyrenees/Lab. Her name is Patience (because she is super laid back and it's from Shakespeare, I name all my pets after Shakespeare characters). She is a rescue that had a hard life of abuse so she really needs this lol.

Amy said...

My doggie, Kavik, is a rescue pup - part malamute, part German shephard. He hates bathtime - maybe some organic products would help make the process more pleasant.
