National Dog Day!!!

I sure didn’t know anything about National Dog Day until today. I’m so pleased to know that there is a national day to celebrate or remember our 4 legged friends.   They truly are man’s best friend!

I’m so excited to share all my 4 legged babies that have been a part of our family the past 20 years, including the newest additions…

Jester, lived with us for almost 11 yrs. Passed away 2008

Jester 2

Poeka, 7yrs younger than Jester, meant as Jester’s companion but Poeka sees Jester more like his father. Passed away 2010


Tubby, 5 yrs younger than Poeka.  Playmate/sibling/companion for Poeka after we lost Jester.  Poeka lost his meaning for living until Tubby joined our family.  Passed away 2012

Chippy/Lulu – litter mates: brother and sister. We couldn’t walk away with just one puppy home because Chippy seems so inseparable from Lulu. Will be celebrating their 2 yr old birthday in just 2 months.

Goddess Garden Organic Aerosol Mechanism

Goddess Garden Organic – SunnyBody SPF30 Sport Spray

Lately, we have encountered a technical difficulty with Goddess Garden Organic Sport Spray aerosol mechanism. 2 bottles in a row and both brand new, the cap got “stuck”, not able to press down to initiate the aerosol mechanism to Sunny_Body_6oz_Sport_Continuous_Spray_Sunscreen_Organic_Broad_Spectrum_Natural__54575.1396029856.280.407spray out the sun screen out. At first, I thought maybe I didn’t turn the cap all the way to the “open” position, but NO that’s not the case. What a shame!!! It’s the best sun block cream with the highest zinc oxide% in spray form.

We cannot figure it out why and how the cap got stuck. The only explanation that I have is that Zinc Oxide has a very dense creamy texture, and since the % of ZnO is high for a aerosol mechanism that it might be a challenge to ensure the spray system works properly.

One good thing is that we are able to exchange with another new battle of Sport Spray from Whole Foods http://www.wholefoodsmarket. Thanks to their phenomenal customer service.

PS. I used the new one that we exchanged; however, it sprays out as a thin stream and nothing came out after 3 sprays. I actually turned the cap on/off, and luckily it worked this time. On that note, I think the production of this batch might not have the same quality checks as ones that we had before.

I shall post my experiences and questions on the company’s website.
