Dog Nail Grinder Review – Lucky Tail Nail Grinder for Pets

Switching from cutting our dogs' nails to using a dog nail grinder was a game-changer for all of us. So much less drama. No more accidental injuries from cutting nails too short. Best of all, the dogs no longer look at me with murder in their eyes when it's time to do their nails -- which I grind down weekly. Yes, really. I've gone through a bunch of different grinders since Clover was a puppy, including an entry-level one that went through untold numbers of D batteries and replacement heads. I've had other (nicer) ones that died after a year or so. I'm now using a new / different one, so here is our review of Lucky Tails Nail Grinder.

Big Barker Review Video (Dog Bed) and New Research

Our youngest canine hero, Mr. Stix, has NOT been sleeping well for many weeks now. We needed some fresh ideas, then along came some new research from Big Barker dog beds done at the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary Clinical Investigations Center. Here's why our little dude needed a new bed and how it's working so far. Don't miss the end of the Big Barker review video -- so doggone funny.

Best Solution for Sore Feet Saying Oooph!

Last summer I doubled the miles and time spent walking the dogs while recovering from major surgery. My sore feet paid the price. Dreaded plantar fasciitis.

I'd struggled with plantar fasciitis before, and custom orthotics from the podiatrist fixed my problem with super sore feet. This time, it did not work. My VERY expensive custom orthotics did sort of help the plantar fasciitis pain, but they caused me insane other kinds of sore feet issues. It was like walking with huge river rocks taped to my feet.

It was so bad, even just around the house, that I would try to figure out how to do things like put new sheets on the bed by taking the fewest steps possible. I never could get farther than a few houses down the road before the foot pain from the orthotics flared up.

I went back to see the podiatrist about 8 weeks later, and he made some adjustments to the orthotics that helped a tiny bit. But, I still hated them and stopped using them entirely.

Thankfully, the owner of a local running store gave me a better idea. Recovery shoes from OOFOS!   [Yes, I have a new affiliate relationship with OOFOS and will get a % of any sales made from my links. Remember, I only have such relationships with companies / products I actually use ... though, to be honest, they almost NEVER pay off. For example, I've had these links here for a few months now and NOTHING. I've earned exactly ZERO, so I deleted the adds from other places they were appearing on the site. I'll keep these here, just in case, but you know, likely nothing will come of it.]

Air Filter Review – Better Filters to the Rescue?

Air Filters Delivered asked me to become an affiliate for their home furnace / home air conditioner filters. We only have a furnace at our house because at our high altitude it just doesn't get hot enough in our very short summer to justify having air conditioning. Air Filters Delivered sent some filters to try, and here is our air filter review, after about a month of using one of their MERV 11 filters. Whether you need a good air filter to help deal with allergies or you want one with more oomph during the ongoing pandemic, I hope this info helps.
