Mish Mash Monday

This is a mish and mash of 'stuff' today. Let's start with the fact we were ALL brutally tortured this morning by MOM! Can you believe she started off our week by giving us ALL a BATH - surely this constitutes dog abuse of some kind?????

We wreaked our revenge though because 3 damp dogs made the WHOLE house smell that wonderful wet dog smell.

Mom didn't seem to appreciate our efforts though and went online to find a natural air freshener and what she found she says she just has to share because it smells soooooo good - at least to her - for us - we would rather have a nice meaty, preferably 2 week old bone smell NOW that would be much better MOM!

This is a simple recipe she found on Pintrest and comes from a website called Good Life of Design and is 4 sprigs of rosemary, 2 teaspoons of vanilla and one lemon cut up - with two cups of water. Put everything in a saucepan, bring to a boil and then just let simmer and the air fills with this wonderful clean fresh smell. It said on the website that this is the air freshener that William and Sonoma Company uses to scent their stores - we have never been in one of those - but if you know it - then you will have an idea.

Next - we have a little giveaway - Remember our apple cucumbers - well Mom was lucky enough to get an extra packet of seeds so if you would like a few seeds (these germinate REALLY easily) then send us an email to with your addy and we will send you some. There are enough to send a few seeds to at least 4 happy gardeners. Of coarse - once you grow them you can then then collect the seeds from the cucumbers themselves for next season. Don't I look all clean and handsome next to MY cucumbers?


  1. Wow that air freshener recipe sounds great - thanks for sharing. We don't think our Mommy has a green thumb (our tomato garden is getting worse) so we think we will pass up the opportunity for the Apple Cucumber seeds -- butt we hope whoever gets them has great success. That's so pawsome that you are giving those seed packets out. Way to go Reilly!

  2. I can smell the yummy goodness from here! What a simple way to freshen your house without spraying a bunch of chemicals. Brilliant!

  3. You do look very handsome. That smelly stuff actually does sound inviting.

  4. We bet you all look beautiful after your baths. Thanks for the sweet scent smell. Mom says she would like that for when she cooks fish.

    Have a good week.

  5. What's wrong with wet dog smell! LOL!

  6. You do look handsome, Handsome!

    Thanks for sharing the natural air freshener; it sounds really great and I'm going to try it out. I love to make my house smell like lemon : )

  7. I have got to try that air freshener. It sounds divine! You're looking pretty handsome. :)

  8. Nothin like a good smell in your house to cheer us up. My Vickie thinks she could try that. I am thinking, she will never do it right. But if it helps her learn how to boil water, then we are one step ahead of yesterday.


  9. Mom says that your natural aire freshener sounds wonderful. We agree with you Reilly - meat is better!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  10. That deodoriser sounds great! My human is going to try it out!

  11. I bet that does smell great. Thanks for the tip.

  12. We are going to have to try that! I have also warmed cinnamon sticks and cloves in two cups of water on the stove...perfect in the fall and around the holidays!


Thank you for woofing at us - we read each and every one of them
