Shady Dog Soap

3 Treats

It has been a while since we have been blogging. I have just caught up our blog on most of our happy times in 2016. I was living the rule of three. I'll fill you in on two of them. First I was unexpectedly laid off from my job of 14.5 years in August 2015. The worst of the three was losing my mom to dementia in January 2016. She was an amazing mom that I adored with all my heart. I feel her loss every day.

I was in shock and lost after losing her. My husband had started a new hobby making all natural soap. One day he showed me how to make a batch and I was hooked. I love everything about making soap. And it's so much fun to design.  After sharing soap with our family and friends and seeing how much they enjoyed it, we decided to open our own soap business. And Shady Dog Soap was born. 

Here is a sample of some of the soaps that I have made. Our soaps are for humans to use. I did my research. Meticulously formulated each recipe, choosing skin loving vegetable based oils for my canvas along with cosmetic grade colorants and clays as my paints. 


My hope is to offer a natural dog shampoo. From all the research that I have done, I have not found a recipe that I would use on my dogs yet. The pH level of a dogs skin is very different than humans which makes it tricky to create a recipe that will benefit them.

I invite you to visit Shady Dog Soap. If you have a special essential oil or fragrance that you would love to see in a soap just let me know. My mom always wanted me to run my own business. Now, that dream is coming true.

My toe!

2 Treats

On our morning walk, Hailey ripped off a nail. 
This is a first for one of our dogs and it was not pleasant.
Poor little Hailey.




 A hurt toe did not stop Hailey from
enjoying a nice roll in the grass.

Our vet said that Hailey's nail was healing beautifully!

I can hardly believe our littlest pup has turned 8. 
It seems like 8 years went by in the blink of an eye.

Hailey enjoyed a lovely birthday.
