BECO RUBBER HOOP ON A ROPE review

BECO RUBBER HOOP ON A ROPE review


We have been feeling super lucky and special when we got the news that we were chosen to test out a new dog brand and soon enough Eko brlog will sent us a few product from a brand known as Beco Pets. The product we got were impressive. My dogs immediately chose which toy will be Thor's and which will belong to Orca. The one thing that stood out from all others, that even I was really excited about was BECO RUBBER HOOP ON A ROPE.


It is a toy that is made of natural rubber and natural cotton and it is perfect for a game of tug. Orca has many toys. More than she needs, but this toy has a very special meaning, because we use it for her training session in puppy school. It doesn't squeek and it has a perfect grip for owners and dogs, so it makes one on one game much easier and enjoyable. Sizing couldn't be more perfect and the fact that I can actually just put it on Orca's neck makes it much easier to carry it around and it looks cute as heck for taking photos. #doitforthegram. I wasn't expecting it to be this durable, but so far there is not a single teeth mark on it and we have been using it for almost two months on a daily basis. If it survived my dog's baby teeth than I am pretty sure it can survive a volcano-cunamy-sand storm-anything kind of situations. making it smell like a vanilla was probably the ultimate mistake, because now every time before I start playing with her I need my five second sniffing it.


Orca loves it. Whenever I just show her the toy she automatically connects it to play time and starts running around in circles. Because she is a retriever and her favourite toy is ball, I was afraid that she was not going to adopt this toy and like other toys more. But that was not at all the case. If I put 10 different toys on the ground for her to pick one, this is the one she will chose. And it is the one I would chose. I can't praise it enough to my friends and family.

I am not payed to write this and I would just like to say that this is, 100 %, my honest opinion. So, if you are interested in this amazing toy, you can buy it here: https://www.eko-brlog.com/izdelek/biorazgradljiv-eko-obroc-na-vrvici-becohoop/

My dogs wear clothes more expensive than my clothes.

sobota, 15. december 2018

My dogs wear clothes more expensive than my clothes.

On the other hand, they also eat more expensive and better food than I do. But let's get there. Let me explain it to you why it is so important that they have that, because it seems to me that you don't understand.

This is Orca. Her coat was 74,90 euros. For 2 kg of her food I give around 14 - 23 euros. I also buy her meat/bones and other supplements at lest two times per week. And now multiply that, because I also have a dog named Thor. And a bunny, but luckily he is vegan.


"Dogs don't need clothes, they have a coat already."
My dogs are no wolves. They live with me in my apartment and I never even considered having them outside. I got them because I love dogs, they are my whole life and I work with them and spend a lot of time with them. You would have to be insane to get them outside chained or outside in a crate. That is just my personal opinion and I don't care if your dog is long coated and you think it belongs outside, I does not. When I feel like my dogs need to go out I either take them for a walk with a leash or I take them somewhere far away from people and let them roam. I also have a backyard. Knowing that my dogs live inside with me, can connect you to a though that they live feeling the same temperature as me. I am also very picky when it comes to temperature in my apartment, I have arthritis, I like it warm. And when I go out, when there is cold, I am cold. Logical isn't it? So, why is it so impossible to believe that when my dogs go out when its cold, they are also...you won't believe this... cold.

"Why do you need dog ''clothes''?!"
They need any protection they can't get. Yes, they have fur. Orca is also getting her long coat. But it is definitely not enough. Because if I see my dogs shaking outside, it gives me an intuition that they need warmth. So, with each dog I decided to buy them a coat, for when I take them out. Orca here, is rocking her Extreme Warmer by Hurtta and Thor actually has a coat that my mom made for him. He also has a jacket. And a heath protecting shirt. And a lifeguard swimming vest that costed almost 100 euros. He is just that extra. And most importantly... he needs it. Yes, he would survive without it, because I always make sure he is not exposed to extreme situations. But for that extra opportunities when I like to push it a little, like spending a lot of time in the water, or having to spend time outside in the summer or winter, those dog products are life savers.

"But Eva, why don't you buy something cheaper?!"
The answer is very simple. I buy something that I really love and know for sure it is good and I know I won't have to buy another one next year. Take it as an investment. One coat for many years sounds better to me, than one coat per year that is not even that good of a quality. I put a lot of time into deciding and researching what to buy, because I am a student without a regular job with two dogs, one bunny and one very hungry roommate, so I can't just throw money away.

"I still think it is a waste of money."
My dogs are my life. I am not comparing them to human babies, but I don't have a human child, so my dogs mean more to me than human babies. And when I will have a human baby I will probably love my dogs equaly as that baby, you can take it as a sad fact, but that is just my life. And I call money spent on my dogs well spent money. If you would take your child out poorly dressed in the middle of a winter it would be called child abuse. There are people that leave their dogs outside being cold and alone and people that don't even care how their pets feel when being outside. I call them abusers, because you chose to have an animal, no one forced you to have it, it is your responsibility. To me it makes no difference. Both dogs and baby humans can't do anything about it. Both are alive. Both feel the same things. So if there are child rights advocates out there, take me as an animals advocate. Some think it's a waste of money. I think talking to people that think that is a waste of time.




Either way, you are allowed to have different opinions, but judging people that spend money on dog coats and dog gear is equal as not letting them have an opinion. Why do you care how others spend their money. Why is it so important for you to judge others. I don't judge you when you buy things I would never buy. Because honestly I don't care. Why do you?

Everything makes perfect sense

Everything makes perfect sense

One door closes, another opens. Can't tell you enough how much I really lived up to this quote for the past year. For as long as I can remember I looked up to certain people and spend numerous hours on Youtube looking at famous youtubers and with time I started looking up to famous actors. For me it was getting lost in time and space and just being someone I was not. In my mind I am already married to Adam Driver and am BFF with Jodie Comer. I'll show you THE DARK SIDE and stuff. I realise how weird that sounds. But I loved being somebody else for at least just a minute. Don't even know why I stopped acting, the older I get the more sense it makes to me.


Being someone else made me feel a bit less lost and I am just growing up and starting my own life. I am 22 & a half and I haven't figured out what I should be doing just yet. Unfortunately not everybody knows exactly what they want at my age, okay, it is normal. But I am your man if you want to live up a really fun adventure today and I am your man if you wanna laugh the nights away, but I am not just quite there yet, where I would settle down and devote my whole life to one job or be a grown up. I promise you it is not fun being in my place right now, but I am just so happy about the fact that for the first time ever in my life I don't know what I want and I don't even care enough to do anything about it. The thing that scares me the most is just doing one boring thing for the rest of my life.


Normally I am super organised and I take my planner everywhere I go and plan literally EVERYTHING and times like this would freak me out. And I would start annoying my roommate and I would start crying obsessively when watching movies and I would not be able to go to sleep normally. I have a pattern. But right now I just hope I get to travel with my dogs a lot and take super derpy photos and love as hard as possible and sleep under the stars and write as much as possible. And I know it is not a really real goal, but that is what I hope to do. I hope my boyfriend supports my craziness and thinks I am the best human in the world. That is what I want. So many dog cuddles I never go to sleep sad or worried. Having Orca puppies one day maybe. Because oh man it would be a shame not to have mini Orcas.


This blog post is all over the place, but ever since I got Orca she flipped my life upside down. She is just so amazing and all I want to do in life is always have dogs and always love Thor & Orca. And I just hope that one day I will get as lucky and share that love around in form of mini Orcas.


What I want and what I currently am is just a girl that runs away from most of things and lives her own version of perfect. Without worrying what I should post on Instagram to get likes, without planning perfect photos and writing on time schedule. Without worrying about due dates at school and thinking about how others see me. Without buying a new dress every other week and thinking how my words will hurt others. That was the old Eva. Call it selfish, but don't judge it before you try it. I've been told quite a lot about how to behave and how to do things and how what I am doing right now is not the right thing to do for my age and I am starting to think other people don't know life at all. X MY HEART I can't be controlled, will never be tamed. In the end its how I feel that matters. Truly. And if I am good at anything I am good at telling people to do crazy things RIGHT about NOW. Time is now. Not stopping for anybody. And what you make today will be history tomorrow. Quite a big thought if you think about it.

Watch me disappear without a trace

Watch me disappear without a trace

Sometimes I feel invincible, like I could walk the highest mountain and travel the world. I could write the most important piece of my life and take the best picture. Realising that I could actually be completely different person if I would only do one thing differently, it gives me this itchy feeling. I don't care about choices and how my life will turn out to be, don't get me wrong. I only care for living it as full and as fun as it is humanly possible. And I want to hike the highest mountain and travel the world. And I want to take the best picture everyday and write something really important. And most days I think I am.


If you asked me a month ago what I want to do with my life I would most likely say: "I want to move to some really cool country where beaches are long and winter feels like a chilly summer. With my computer, camera and my dogs. Blogging away the days." But if you asked me 5 days ago I'd say: "I really don't know. Maybe I don't want to do anything." If you ask me today I will say: "I really want to study more. Maybe Geology. So every day I can make rock jokes and laugh about the fact that I am not smart enough to be physicist or like scientist. Geology, man, real stuff." Don't ask where I get my ideas... I always have crazy ideas, it is who I am. A girl that lives for her dogs, speaks for captive orcas and wears her yellow rain coat every season of the year. Either you completely adore me or utterly hate me, nothing in between. 


So much happened and is still happening and I am really happy, but in moments like this, when I am the most productive and the most happy I can't find any words to describe a single thing. The thing is I am really freakishly good at disappearing. Turning invisible. Not talking and getting lost in life and obligations and inspiration and writing and taking photos. I get so happy that I don't have "time" to grow as a creator or as a blogger and influencer and photographer, because I get busy doing things that to me have more value at the time. It is a curse, really. 


No way you could ever ground me and make do only one thing in life. I admire people that can do one thing and be super successful, but that is just not me. I will never be like that. I will never have the most famous blog or the most famous dog or I will never sing the best and draw a masterpiece. I will be decent at everything, and I will forever be crazy and live wild and do something different than anyone else. Doing something that is NOT expected of me and do the opposite that my mom wishes for me to do. It is how I like it and how I want it. It makes me happy and when I look back at my life so far I have no regrets whatsoever. Zero.
