Woohooo! Thank you for all the new followers on the His Savvy Wife Facebook Page! We’ve just broken the 400 number. This little blog has been a little neglected while I was out focusing on making the most out of summer. I believe in living in the moment and being present in life, so I apologize if the neglect has left this space a little empty.
The good thing is…… winter and snow is almost here. While temperatures outside are almost freezing, I’m so happy to have this space to turn to and pour out my thoughts. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, the remaining of November will be compiling a good number of product reviews to share as we start preparing for Black Friday! I will also be compiling a post to help you prepare to get the best haul as the day comes nearer. And trust me, you are going to love this one. Lots of terms explained, and you’re going to want to get the most bang for your buck on Black Friday. I’m sure you’d like to find out how to compare the best places to get the products you are looking to purchase. It’s not that complicated if you take some time to work on it and compile a list on where to shop.
Don’t stress on that now, because I’ll give you a good checklist to work through.
As most of you already know, Cupid is a big part of my life right now since we’re home together every single day. He’s an active little 5 pound Chihuahua, who has a whole lot of love, protection, and comedy packed into him. While most people think that chihuahuas are house dogs and do not need to go outside, this little guy does loves his walks and is usually very focused on going the distance. We’ve gone for full 5km walks and further with him regularly and he goes through the whole route pretty well.
He gets a weekly bath because he loves playing in the grass and exploring the backyard. We try to allow him to get outside daily, but with the weather getting colder now, he does not like going out as much. He also sleeps with us on the bed, so his cleanliness is very important to us. He gets wiped down everyday before sleep, sometimes multiple times a day, whenever he goes out or dirties himself. I’m very particular about how he smells because I’m paranoid about having a house that smells like “dog”. I don’t know how to explain it, but I’m sure if you had friends who own dogs, you’ll get this.
I’m also very particular about what he gets in contact with. He’s a very small and curious dog, even the littlest harmful substance can hurt because of his size. I mostly get very gentle shampoos for him and will go through the ingredient list to make sure they are made of mostly all natural products. I’ve tried various neem shampoos, and even black soap, which is known to soothe the skin, but he still remained scratchy, sometimes to the extent he had hot spots on his skin.
I jumped on the opportunity to review I Love My Dog Shampoo when they offered. Neem is a herb that is known for its healing and pest repellent properties, while oatmeal is great for reducing skin inflammation and soothing the itchiness. Here’s the product description:

What I love about it:
I’m glad to say we tried this shampoo over the weekend, and he’s hasn’t been scratching as much. There’s not a lot of bubbles, which I like, because I always fear that he would lick them or that it would go into his eyes. Its been about 5 days now and his fur is super soft and smooth. I love how it feels now and can’t stop giving him his belly rubs.
The only thing I didn’t like was the smell, but a couple drops of essentials oils would have solved the issue. Overall, I liked that he is scratching less now, and I find that its value for money. Its a very big bottle and a little goes a long way. I will continue using this after this bottle is finished.
His favorite thing to do after a bath…. Doggy Swaddle. And then…. he’s off to get his after bath treat, and nap.
