4 Faves – Version 22.0

Posted by lori . 5 Comments


Crest Neat Squeeze Dispenser

It’s not so much the toothpaste that I’m in love with, it’s the dispenser.  It sits nicely on the counter and stays neat and tidy.

Hope’s Perfect Glass

I mentioned how much I like Hope’s Perfect Stainless in 4 Faves – Version 3.0.  Hope’s Perfect Glass is just as good.

Wiggles Wags & Whiskers Freedom No-Pull Harness

I’ve enjoyed using the Freedom No-Pull Harness on my walks with Freedom and Casper.  It allows me to maintain control without choking them.  I purchased our harnesses from 2 Hounds Design.

Yankee Candle

I love candles…quality candles.  Yankee Candle is a quality candle.  Lovely scents (something for everyone), exceptional fragrance throw (how the fragrance disperses through the air), and clean burn.  I prefer the large jars.


The month of August will be “4 Faves – Friends Version.”  What are your favorite things?  Tell me about them during the month of July and one (or more) of your picks may be chosen as a “favorite” in August.  You can let me know what you like in one of three ways…post a comment, email me (whatremainsnow@gmail.com), or let me know on the What Remains Now Facebook page (either by commenting or writing on my wall).  Tell me what the item is and why you like it.  Want to see what “4 Faves – Friends Version” looks like?  Check out this post from May.

    I’m a HUGE fan of the Wiggles, Wags and Whiskers harnesses, too! When we got Bunny, she was my first experience with a Greyhound who hadn’t lived life at the track. They learn A LOT of leash manners there! We stopped at a local dog bakery on our way home and that was my first hint. Walking Bunny that first summer was like walking a landed trout! She had no idea what a leash was for nor any appreciation for it! I was used to walking Treat, who was perfect on a leash. I almost gave up on walking completely. Adding insult to injury was the fact that Blueberry sauntered along perfectly next to my husband. I’d heard about the harnesses and we went to a big reunion up in Chicago where somebody was selling them. I kid you not when I say that those harnesses saved our relationship and turned it into what we now have. It allowed us to go out and do so much more. I just can’t say enough how much I love them!

    Oh, I love Yankee candles, too! I must look like a drug addict when we to into the store and I start sniffing all of them! 😛

    Bunny still thinks Freedom and Casper should do their own versions of Favorite things! A new favorite thing I have is Thirty One bags! Oh, the possibilities! We’re even getting one that has Tales & Tails on it. Yes, I’m a dork!

      The harnesses have been a lifesaver for us too. Before, I didn’t want to put them on lead because I felt like I was going to cause them to choke themselves. Freedom and Casper are progressing nicely.

      Bunny mentioned the idea of the Freedom and Casper’s 4 Faves before, and I promise we have something in the works.

      I just recently learned about Thirty-One at our Spring Fling. They look really nice and I NEVER thought about getting “What Remains Now” on one. You’re a genius! I love home parties! I’d have one a month if my friends and family wouldn’t kill me.

  • i eagerly wait for the day when georgia is able to walk with a harness. she lunges so badly [though thank goodness not that often these days – only when she sees a cat or another dog barks at her] that the only thing that works is still a check chain. sigh. but there you are.

      Jennifer from Never Say Never Greyhounds mentioned that a harness can give a strong dog even more pulling power. I think the harnesses have been successful for me because Freedom and Casper weren’t pulling really hard, just enough that I felt I was choking them with the lead attached to the martingale collar. With them, the harness actually gave me more control. It was interesting to me when Jennifer mentioned that about the harness though, because I had never thought of it that way.

    I’m always happy to share good ideas! I couldn’t resist it, you just have to make sure you can fit it in with their letter count, which can be tricky!
