New burrow toy

I cut Ralphie's hair last week so this weekend I trimmed his ears and face. The tools I used are linked here. I was using the 12mm guard with the electric clippers. To prevent him from falling off of the slippery toilet lid he is sitting on a silicone mat.

Someone looks handsome in his matching bow and collar (size M since size S was just a tad too snug).  

Harness is size S.

Food topper that actually works for our picky eater. 🐶 I wish I knew about this sooner.

This air tag holder (set of 2 colors) works well on my dog's 0.75" dog collar. He doesn't seem to mind it either. He fluffs himself a lot and it hasn't shaken the ait tag loose from this holder. Follow @hi.ralphie on the LTK shopping app for more dog products. He is a 15 pound male Ahih Tzu. He is wearing size S in the collar and harness. Both the collar and harness can often be found at TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Homegoods for less.

Ralphie's favorite llama / alpalca plush dog toy is back! 2 for $9.99 but he prefers the brown ones over the white one. If sold out ouline you can often find them in stores at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Homegoods and Sierra.

Found this cute @nandogpetgear pineapple dog bed  @homegoods for $19.99. Linked to the exact one for reference. Ralphie loves to curl up so he fits inside even though he's a 15 pound male Shih Tzu.

Matching in gingham for National pet day. @hi.ralphie's banadana is size small and reversible. #nationalpetday #dogmom #gingham

Study dog carrier with wide straps. I would say 15 pounds is the the max limit for this bag. The straps can dig into your shoulders if your dog is closer to the maximum weight limit for this small dog carrier. @hi.ralphie is a 15 pound male Shih Tzu. You should also secure your pet's collar to the two straps that are inside the bag for added security. Generous side pocket with zipper to hold essentials. For size reference I'm 5' 2.5" and 108-113 pounds.

Stop struggling to open poopy bags on walks (helpful tip). Amazon find.

Love this reversible bandana. It's a thicker material since it's two layers of fabric. Size small is 25" long. Ralphie is a Shih Tzu with a 10.5" neck so the knot is a bit bigger due to the material but overall it's cute and well made for $8.99 Amazon find.

Gifted items from etsy seller @leatherius. Use code WHATJESSWORE33 for 33% off.

Custom leather dog collar (1" but wish I received the 5/8" collar since Ralphie is a smaller dog), poop waste bag and 1" leash which is best for larger hands in my opinion.

Jerk-Ease is a dog leash attachment. I bought size S and it works great with his harness and flat leash. The bungee effect absorbs the shock from his pulling\tugging and my wrist feels much better. 

Ralphie is a 15 pound male Shih Tzu.

Dog raincoat with star print lining - I noticed size S is left which is the size Ralphie took. He is a 15 pound male Shih Tzu. 

He also took the step in Voyager harness in size S.

Lastly, I got this small leash attachment to prevent sudden jerks and it seems to work well even with his harness versus a regular collar.

Small dog bed faux leather pet sofa (the faux suede version may be available at Costco for less). Sadly Ralphie didn't like this but sharing this video for size reference. He's a 15 pound male Shih Tzu.

The llama/alpalca plush is often found at T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, Homegoods and Sierra Trading in a small and large size (Ralphie prefers the larger size as shown here). Out of all of his toys this is his baby/favorite toy.

Step 1 - I used the # 3 clipper that came with Scaredy Cut cat and dog grooming shears. follow his face shape as shown in video clip (only viewable on free @liketoknow.it shopping app).  

Video was sped up 
Actual time: 5 minutes 30 seconds

 ❗️An important personal safety note about Shears: The instructions say to hold locks of fur you want cut but don't have to. Note better access under front hind legs (you could call them doggy arm pits) gently pull loose skin order trim tricky area. stopped pulling at bunches recommended because would myself way whenever went too fast (I often knicked my nails if didn't move fingers enough). Lastly, be very cautious when trimming around your dog's ears private area especially they are intact (not neutered)!!!

It got easier more groomed him as he older. also lightly buzz at nose/snout better it (you see me doing this 40 seconds into video clip which only viewable on free @liketoknow.it shopping app).

For Ralphie's look am using a # 3 clipper his face and body, 1 feet/paws 2 upper legs. The blends nicely with body which is clipper. hair around eyes Trimming eye hairs can take lot of patience before your will okay you being so close their any tools.

Since small place my lap clear easy access shave that region. rounded tip scissors trim paw pads round off paws. thinning sheers if don't want create harsh lines they work great stray/pokey when shaping legs paws well face/head. silicone mat keep from slipping step stool put on. linked nails although nail grinder out.
