We love being out­side and swim­ming and patrolling our prop­er­ty …
Before  we go out to work in the morn­ings, Mama gives us a spray-bottle-shower:

  • 4 drops Clary Sage Essen­tial Oil 
  • 2 drops Cleans­ing Essen­tial Oil Blend
  • 5 drops Out­door Essen­tial Oil Blend
  • 8 drops Pep­per­mint Essen­tial Oil Blend
  • 4 drops Lemon Essen­tial Oil 
  • 2 drops Gera­ni­um Essen­tial Oil
  • 2 drops Euca­lyp­tus Essen­tial Oil 
  • 3 drops Laven­dar Essen­tial Oil 
  • 2 drops Myrrh Essen­tial Oil 
  • 8 oz of dis­tilled water

And Every Sun­day * , she soaks our col­lars in this: 

  • 4oz of dis­tilled water
  • 10 drops Eucalyptus
  • 10 drops Repel­lent Blend
  • 10 drops Lemongrass

*Every two weeks is OK too, Mama just likes to be over protective.

Mama and us were live on face­book and she explained every­thing. Here you can watch the Video


… and stay away!

After tak­ing one of my five dai­ly nap­pies, Mama picked me up and took me to the show­er. There she opened this thing and all this fun wet stuff came out no mat­ter how much I barked at it!
While I was busy bark­ing and bit­ing at the wet stuff — Mama put Dawn Dish Soap on me. She said that will take care of  fleas, in case I had any. 
My broth­er Ranger had a lot of them when Mama found him  —  Ranger said it was mis­er­able, the creepy, crawlies bitet him all over… but the Dawn Dish Soap made them go away.

Then Mama let me play some more in the show­er — while she got my new collar.

To make the fleas and ticks STAY AWAY, this is what Mama does: Every Sun­day*, she soaks our colars in this stuff: 
4oz of dis­tilled water
10 drops Euca­lyp­tus
10 drops Repel­lent Blend
10 drops Lemon­grass

*Every two weeks is OK too, Mama just likes to be over protective.

Bit­ing and bark­ing at all that show­er water made me sleepy… I had to take a post-show­er-nap. I hope Mama wakes me before Dinner …
