I had big plans for this post, but with THUNDERSTORM 2010 looming down it kind of put a crimp in my idea. (Read: we get one thunderstorm every 24 months or so around here, and the county pretty much shuts down in mass panic, blackouts, that sort of thing.)
So I thought I would keep it simple.
As we learned in Wednesday’s post, everyone loves wipes. And you know, I do too. Wipes are great for maintenance, especially when you’re feeling lazy and don’t want to do a full bath on your pet. They are convenient for things like dusty paws, helpful as peace of mind when your dog finds some rotting thing in the yard, and faster than fishing out a washcloth and a bottle of shampoo.
John Paul Pet is the pet division of Paul Mitchell, which if you are anything like me will immediately bring you back to 1995, sitting in the shower with a bottle of Awapuhi shampoo pretending you’re in Hawaii. Love the stuff.
In addition to their line of shampoos and conditioners, John Paul Pet also has a line of wipes. And not just one wipe, mind you- ear and eye wipes, tooth and gum wipes, and full body and paw bath wipes. Basically, if it’s wipeable, they have a way to wipe it. You could wipe your dog from head to toe with them.
Now you all know what I’m going to say. Wipes do not replace dental cleanings, ear cleanings, or (say it with me) antibiotics for infected nasal folds. They do not reverse disease. They help healthy parts remain clean and healthy. That being said, when I was laid out in the hospital after having a baby and I wasn’t able to get up and waddle to the sink, having face wipes and tooth wipes was pretty awesome. They do make a difference.
The ingredients in these wipes are appropriate for their purpose and the scent is nice but not overwhelming. Both Brody and Koa enjoyed their head to toe wiping. I told the kids we were playing doggie carwash and let them have at it while I had an afternoon cup of coffee. It was great.
Here they are modeling their recently wiped ears and smiles. They are clearly enjoying each others’ minty fresh breath.
I have three samplers of wipes I’m handing out today- the sampler packs have one of each of the three kinds of wipes. Throw ’em in your car, keep one in your purse- you never know when you could use one, right?
I’ll pick three comments at random on Sunday night (6 PST). To keep it fun, today’s question for entry is: What is the worst thing your pet has gotten into? (For Brody it would have to be that half eaten possum he kept dragging around the backyard for an entire afternoon.)
