LLLT: A Safe, Non Invasive Way to Treat Many Pet Maladies

(Dezi and Raena jump in mommy’s lap and meow excitedly to each other)

Well, did you miss us? We’re so glad you’re joinin’ us today. Like me said, we have somethin’ really pawsum to tell you ‘bout. And stay tuned, cuz we’re also havin’ a give away, and there’s a discounted coupon code too, ifin ya’ just can’t wait. As most of you know, sis Lexi had athritis fur years. Mommy gave her a supplement to treat it, cuz that’s really all that’s been available. When sissy got sicker and pickier, mommy tried treats and medicines, again, that’s all that was available. The problem with most of those supplements and treats and medicines, is that they typically upset the tummy. And medications may have nasty side effects. You just want your furry purrer or waggin’ woofy to feel better, but in doing so, you might be causing other issues.

Now, just what is this mommy?

 

          You know sissy, arthritis is just one issue we anipals can have that needs treatin’. Big doggies are prone to Hip Displaysia, Bursitis/Tendonitis, and we can all get sprains and strained muscles, back pain and so many more physical ailments requiring long term treatments or even surgery. And being a larger breed kitty means that most likely, we’ll start having issues at a younger age. That means really long term treatment. That’s when our pawrents, bein’ the good pawrents they are, really start looking at those side effects caused by the current treatments and try to find alternatives or least somethin’ less toxic. 

 

 Raena checks out the LumaSoothe

Wha’cha’ gonna do with this mommy?

 

You’re right Raena. But what about other types of problems. You know we have quite a few furiends that have skin issues. Some caused by allergies and others, still unknown. Some of those that suffer, lose fur, scratch, have flaky skin (Eczema/Psoriasis) and get infections from licking and scratching so much.

 

 Raena getting a LumaSoothe treatment

Hmmmmmm This is innerestin’.

 

          What about the itchies caused by necessary medications, or the occasional wayward scratch? You know sometimes play can get a little rough and some kitty/doggy gets accidentally injured. Or Kittens furbid, kitty or doggy gets in a real fight. There’s the cone of shame, that thankfully, we’ve never had to wear. And bless our sweet kitty furiend’s heart but we know an adorable kitty that had to wear a t-shirt fur a while. Ifin you had something that could speed up the healing process wouldn’t you want it?

 

 Dezi gets a LumaSoothe treatment

That doesn’t hurt at all mommy.

 

And ifin there was something that could speed up the fur growth wouldn’t you want that? And somethin’ that could…

 

 Dezi poses with the LumaSoothe

 

     Thank you girls. You’ve both made some great points. I want to talk to your friends and their parents for a minute, okay?

(Dezi and Raena nod and purr)

     As the girls have pointed out, our beloved furry family members have a lot of the same health issues that we do. And we all know cats are notorious for hiding their pains and ills. None of us want to treat something that doesn’t exist, but most of us are looking to be proactive with our pets health these days. We’re feeding them better, seeing the Vet more often, brushing their teeth and definitely trying alternative treatments when available.

 

 LumaSoothe in box

     So what if I told you there was a safe, non-invasive way to treat Arthritis, Bursitis & Tendonitis, Deep Surgical Wounds, Deep Muscle Tissue, Hip Dysplasia, Sprains & Strains, Back Pain and more. What if I said the same device could also be used for Chronic Pain Relief, to relieve Eczema & Psoriasis, Clear Infections, Treat Surface Skin Injuries, Post-Surgical Wounds, has Anti-Inflammatory Benefits, Kills Harmful Bacteria, Promotes Healthier Skin, Promotes Hair Growth and more? And lastly, what if I told you this could be used from birth throughout your pets life without any adverse side effects? And, doesn’t require you to be a contortionist (to pill kitty) or end up in the human emergency room with wounds of your own afterwards? Yeah, that last statement was a little dramatic, but you get the idea.

 

Dezi checks out the LumaSoothe

     

     But really, being able to safely treat so many of our beloved furry family members ailments with one tool would be amazing. Just imagine the money you would save over the lifetime of your pet. And imagine how much happier kitty/doggy would be and how little stress for the both of you when it comes to treating these ailments without having a pill shoved down their throat or mixed in their food. We recently came across a tool that I believe should be in every pet household/first aid kit. That tool is called the LumaSoothe. What is it you ask? Well, it’s Light Therapy for your pets. Human medicine has used Light Therapy for years, and it’s finally available for use on our pets.

 

 LumaSoothe box contents

 

     First, let me tell you what comes in the box when you purchase the LumaSoothe. You’ll receive the LumaSoothe Rechargeable Control Unit, 2 (easily) Interchangeable LED Heads, USB Charger and Cable, Instruction Manual, Built-in Li-ion Battery and a 2 year warranty. The box is nice and sturdy and makes for a great storage place for your LumaSoothe between treatments.

     Now let me explain a little about Light Therapy. Low Level Light Therapy treats ailments by exposure to specific wavelengths of light using light emitting diodes (LED). 35 years of clinical research has shown LLLT (Low Level Light Therapy) to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissue and organisms. Light Therapy triggers cellular stimulation. The LumaSoothe Control Unit has 2 buttons; one to power on the unit and the other to start the treatment process which lasts 15 minutes. There’s a light to let you know the unit is on and one to tell you when the unit is charged.

     Let me tell you about the technical information LumaSoothe offers for those of you who are interested. LumaSoothe incorporates 2 easily interchangeable heads, the (IR) (DT) Deep Treatment Head and the (ST) Surface Treatment Head. They are easy to switch out and lock into place. Each treatment head has 40 powerful LED’s with a total of 5 wavelenghts between the 2 heads ranging from 465 to 940 nanometers (nm) along with Luma-Tech’s Pulsed Wave Technology. NASA medical studies have concluded a faster and more efficient cellular response when using Pulsed-light as opposed to a steady beam. The result is an increase in the cellular metabolism rate which expedites cell repair and the stimulation of the immune system, lymphatic and vascular systems to produce: Faster Wound Healing, Pain Relief, Increased Metabolic Activity, Anti-Inflammatory Benefits, Accelerated Cellular Growth, Improved Vascular Activity, Improved Nerve Function, Promotes Healthier Skin, Kills Harmful Bacteria, and more.

 That feels really good mommy. Can ya’ move it a little

to the left? MOL

 

     The (DT) Deep Treament Head uses 940nm LED’s. The Infrared light (800nm – 1000nm) penetrates to a depth of about 30 – 40nm’s making it most effective for treating bones, joints and deep muscles. The (ST) Surface Treatment Head has visible light that penetrates tissue to a depth of about 8 – 10nm at wavelengths from 400 to 700nm and is effective in treating surface wounds, cuts, scars, trigger and acupuncture points, kills bad bacteria, treats a variety of skin conditions, promotes healthy skin and hair, relieves pain and is effective in treating infections. The (ST) Head includes these LED’s: 4 yellow at 490nm, 8 blue at 470nm. 12 green at 520 nm and 16 red at 650nm to provide the widest spectrum for shallow skin treatments. The bottom line, is that between the 2 heads, you can treat a multitude of problems and health issues our pets face, safely and in a manner that is enjoyable for you and your kitty/doggy. (Remember to never point the device directly at your pets eyes!)

     The LumaSoothe is programmed to shut off after 15 minutes. During the treatment the head warms a bit, but doesn’t get hot and isn’t uncomfortable for your pet. Measuring enjoyment in purrs, I would say that Dezi and Raena love treatment time. Dezi has been having a few issues with early onset of arthritis due to her size and activity levels. Since we started using the LumaSoothe, I’ve noticed that she’s been jumping more and has become more active than previous months. While Raena is still a kitten, and doesn’t really need treatments, she enjoys them, and we’re being proactive. And it’s safe to use on her. And you know, there may very well be a little pain in growing bones, muscles and joints. After her spay, the fur was really slow to grow back. We began using the LumaSoothe ST head on the area, and her fur’s back and floofy beautiful again.

Oh mommy, this feels so good. Can we do this everyday?

 

     If you haven’t figured it out by now, we love the LumaSoothe Light Therapy Treatment device and we think ya’ll will too. I love that it’s safe to use on both girls and doesn’t cause any side effects. I love that the girls enjoy it too; 15 minutes of non stop purring in my lap is really therapeutic for me as well. The LumaSoothe can be purchased directly from Luma-Tech for $149.95 with free shipping or amazon.com.

          What are you meowin’ ‘bout sissy? I’s thought we were s’posed to be writin’ our Chewy review today.

 

We are lass, but we’re also celebratin’ our Irish heritage.

 

          I’s know you’re smart sissy, but I’s don’t think we’ve got any Irish heritage.

 

Sure we do Raena. Some of mommy’s ancestors left the green isle and traveled across the big pond to come to America. And even ifin they hadn’t, everypawdy is a bit Irish on St. Paddy’s day.

 Raena posing beside the bag of Nature's Variety Freeze Dried Mixers

 

Never mind Raena, you’re just rainin’ on me’s whale of a time. Anyways, we do have a great purroduct to tell everypawdy ‘bout today. We received the Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Freeze Dried Mixers/Toppers in Rabbit. They come in a 6 ounce bag and cost $9.04. The little nuggets have a cylindrical shape and are fairly hard fur a freeze dried food. Altho’ mommy says she can still easily break them up, or cut them up. ‘Member, we like really small bites. Now, let’s see what Chewy lists as the Key benefits:

   

Key Benefits

  • A great all natural, freeze-dried topper that’s grain-free and makes any kibble irresistible

  • Made of high quality, raw nutrition in a convenient and easy-to-serve form

  • Pure protein freeze-dried protein aids in lean muscle development

  • Natural ingredients with no artificial colors or preservatives provide optimal nutrient absorption

  • Nutritious oils and essential fatty acids give your furry friend healthy skin and coat

Ingredients

  1. Rabbit, Pork Liver, Pork Heart, Pumpkinseeds, Carrots, Apples, Butternut Squash, Ground Flaxseed, Montmorillonite Clay, Dried Kelp, Broccoli, Mixed Tocopherols, Apple Cider Vinegar, Salmon Oil, Rosemary Extract, Blueberries, Dried Chicory Root.

Caloric Content

  1. 3,697 kcal/kg, 1.4 kcal/piece

         

          The ingredient list is purretty simple and doesn’t contain any of the questionalbe ingredients our humans worry ‘bout.

 

 Nature's Variety Freeze Dried Mixers colored green for St. Paddy's day

 

That’s right Raena. Now we’ve covered the ingredient Montmorillomite clay befur, but we’ll just say that among it’s other benefits, it works as a great detoxifier in pet foods by helping to bind with and remove toxins from our bodies. And a little known fact ‘bout pumpkin seeds, is that they can be used as a natural wormer. Now we know that’s not the purrpuss of them in this purrticular food, but we did wanna throw that out there. In other words, mommy’s purretty happy with the ingredient deck of the Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Mixers.

          Can we get to the taste testin’ now sissy? And I’s not want the green ones either. Cuz I’s really like that wascally wabbit. They taste great right outta the bag as a treat. And I’s also enjoyed them over mine’s noms with added water. I’s give the Nature’s Variety Freeze dried Rabbit 4 paws up.

Fanks Raena. They’re not really green, as you can see in the foto above and below. Me likes them too. They don’t reconstitute as quickly or as well as some other freeze dried foods, but they are mighty tasty. Me gives them 4 paws up too. They’re also available in chicken and fur doggies. Mommy likes that we like them and as me said befur, she luvs the ingredient list.

Cosequin© For Joints #ChewyInfluencer

Meow Welcome everypawdy. Do you suffer from achy joints? Is old man Arfur-Itis visitin’ ya’ more and more? Do ya’ have a few extra pounds ya’ just can’t seem to get rid of bearin’ down on your spindly legs? Do ya’ look at the top of the cat tree with longin’ and settle fur a lower shelf? Has your got us and go, got up and went? Well, ifin ya’ said yes to any of those questions, we might have just the thing fur ya’. Bein’ purroud Chewy Influencers, we get to try pawsum purroducts every month and tell you all ‘bout them. Today, we’re gonna tell ya’ ‘bout a great joint health supplement, Cosequin.

 Dezi sits on the brown cat tree in her signature pose

 

Me is a 7 year old 30 – 35 pound Ragdoll Service Cat. Now me’s not overweight; we Ragdolls are just normally large kitties. There are other breeds that be rather large as well. Thing is, even tho’ we’re not overweight, we’re still luggin’ all that weight around with every jump up or down, climb or zoomy we make. That has an affect on our joints over time, and we might start feelin’ it a little earlier than some of the smaller breeds. But let me tell ya’, doesn’t matter your size, breed, or species, old man Arfur-Itis comes to visit all of us at some time or another, just ask mommy.

 

 Dezi bathes in front of the fireplace

 

Us kitties are notorious fur hidin’ our pains. So what do you do as our human caretaker? Well, ya’ keep an eye out fur those tell tail tale signs: a small limp, not as many zoomies, lower/slower jumps, less play and all ‘round activity and/or more naps. Ifin ya’ see any of these signs, kitty/doggy just might be sufferin’ from old man Arfur-Itis visits’. Of course you should check with your VET anytime you suspect there’s a purroblem. It’s confurmed, you’re beloved anipal is sufferin’ from achy joints and you want to give them somethin’ to ease that pain.

 

Dezi poses by the box of Nutramax Cosequin joint relief capsules for cats

Glucosamine and Chondroitin have been acknowledged by the medical community as bein’ helpful fur those achy joints. Nutramax has several formulas available fur both kitties and doggies. We tried out the Cosequin joint health supplement for cats. We received a box of 30 capsules which cost $8.96. These capsules are intended to be opened and sprinkled on our food. Me will tell ya’ that mommy’s initial reaction was not pleasant. So much of Feline medicine is based on what works fur Canines. Most doggies will eat anything no matter how bad it tastes. Us kitties…Not so much. And ifin you ever taint our favorite noms with medicine? Yeah, we’re not eatin’ that again. MOL  Let’s take a look at what Chewy says ‘bout the Nutramax Cosequin Supplement fur Cats.

      

Key Benefits

  • #1 vet recommended formula provides powerful joint support

  • With a blend of manganese, glucosamine and chondroitin

  • Recommended by veterinarians to support bladder health, a major concern for cats

  • These capsules can be broken apart and sprinkled on or mixed with your cat’s favorite wet food

  • Helps maintain healthy joints to keep your furry friend happy and healthy

Now what’s contained inside those capsules:

 

Ingredients

  1. Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, Manganese. Other Ingredients: Gelatin, Natural Flavor, Water, Magnesium Stearate, Titanium Dioxide(Color), FD&C Red #3, And FD&C Blue#1.

Now let me break down those active ingredients fur ya’. Each capsule contains a minimum of 1mg of Manganese, 125mg Glucosamine Hydrochloride and 100mg of Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate. Dosage size is based on the size of the animal. Fur me, it takes 2 capsules a day; 10 pounds and under would be 1 capsule. That means the 30 capsules we received would last ‘bout 2 weeks. The box claims it will take ‘tween 4 – 6 weeks to see results. And once the desired response has been achieved the dosage can be cut back to every other day fur maintenance. You may increase the dosage as needed.

 

 Nutramax Cosequin Capsules for cats

Now, let’s get to the testin’. Against mommy’s better judgment, she opened said capsule and started sprinkling on me’s food. She soon realized that like most “sprinkle/mix on food” supplements me would have more medicine than food, and that was only one capsule. So mommy stopped adding after ‘bout a third of the capsule. Then, she gave it to me to eat. Yeah, No. Me wasn’t havin’ any of that. Me instead, stole sis Raena’s food and mommy had to make her another plate. Mommy really wants to make sure me’s joints are healthy, so fur the next dose, mommy mixed me up a little “Butter Spoon”. Mommy offen hides nasty medicine in a dab of butter. Most kitties will gladly lick a “Butter Spoon” clean. So it was no surprise when me licked up that “tainted” butter like it was the last butter on earth.

 

Cosequin sprinkled over freeze dried cat food

A little Cosequin sprinkled over me’s freeze dried food before water added. Yep mommy sure is messy. MOL

 

So me would rate the Cosequin two paws up. Me didn’t take it long enuff to really see any results, so we can’t speak to that, but me did gladly take each “Butter Spoon” dose fur the next 14 days. Ifin you have a really finicky kitty, we definitely suggest you NOT add this supplement to their food, but rather find another medium to administer it, such as butter, baby food, olive oil, maybe a treat pocket or the likes. Raena’s not yet a year old, so she didn’t try the Cosequin at all, but she did have a blast with the box. Cuz mommy was able to get me to take the medicine, she gives it a thumb up. We’ve heard great things ‘bout Cosequin and feel it might actually work ifin you take it as directed.

 

 Dezi licks butter/baby food spoon with medicine

 

As me said earlier, Nutramax does make several formulas and sizes. Fur our pawcket book this would get a little pricey over time. But you all know, mommy would do whatever she could to make sure we kitties have what we need. So all in all, we would recommend the Nutramax Cosequin joint supplement fur Cats or Dogs.

Gently Dried Beef Hearts #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We don’t normally post on Tuesdays, but we have another pawsum Chewy review we wanted to tell you about, so mommy said I’s could post it today. I’s thinkin’ that I’s getting’ purretty good at this bloggin’ thing, wha’d’ya’ think?

 

 Dezi lays on the arm of the chair

 

          Raena!!! Quit askin’ fur compliments!!! It isn’t pawlite.

 

 Chewy Logo

Whatever sissy. Not pawlite.? I’s’ll have to look that up on google later. Anyways, right now I’s wanna talk ‘bout the pawsum Chewy Blogger Influencer program. Ya’ll know that each month we get the oppurrtunity to try out and tell ya’ll ‘bout some really amazin’ and offen tasty purroducts. ‘Course you also know that we always tell ya’ the truth. We are so grateful that Chewy purreciates our honesty and doesn’t penalize us fur it. That’s a purretty good reason to shop with a place ifin ya’ ask me. And we’re glad you all have come to trust us, cuz we do tell da truth. Mommy says Chewy’s Customer Service is just as pawsum. She says she can shop with absolute confidence, which was really nice when me furst came to live here and she didn’t know what kind of foods I’s was gonna like. Not to worry, when she ordered with Chewy, even ifin she ordered the wrong thing, they would make it right. And you all know how much I’s luvs me a Chewy box. OMC  They are the bestest.

 

Raena plays in a chewy box

         

          Raena, you kinda wrote a disclaimer. And me luvs a great chewy box too. Are you gonna get to the treats any time soon?

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. We received compensation for our honest review. All opinions are our own unless otherwise stated. We only bring products we use or have tried and feel will be of interest to you our readers and friends. 

 

Yes, sissy. I’s getting’ there. When I’s was a little girly, mommy bought me these yummy heart treats. No, not the ones shaped like a heart, but real freeze dried heart organ treats. I’s luvved ‘em and so did sissy, but mommy couldn’t ‘member anythin’ ‘bout ‘em. So this month when Chewy offured us the oppurrtunity to try out the Evanger’s Nothing but Natural Beef Hearts Gently Dried Dog and Cat Treats, 3.5 oz. bag, we jumped on it. Furst, let’s go see what Chewy and Evanger’s says ‘bout these heart treats.

Key Benefits

  • Single ingredient beef hearts are nutrient dense treats that can be a treat, training award, food topper, or reconstituted in warm water for 3-5 minutes for a savory snack.

  • Grain-free, gluten-free product, endorsed by the cRc Kosher for Passover.

  • No additives or artificial ingredients

  • Highly palatable treats are perfect for finicky or picky pets

  • Suitable for both dogs & cats

 

 Raena sniffing the evanger's beef heart treats bag

We always luvs a purroduct that has an ingredient list we can read and doesn’t contain any of those controversial ingredients. These Evanger’s Beef Hearts fit that bill to a tee. Nothin’ in the bag but good ole beef hearts. Now let me tell ya’, there’s a big difference ‘tween Freeze dried and Gentle dried; and ‘tween organ meats and flesh meats. Anyways, mommy opened the bag of Evanger’s hearts and kittens, was she shocked!!! Inside the bag were these long strips that looked a lot like jerkey. Well, you all know sis Dezi and me like little bites, so as we waited rather impatiently, mommy took one of those strips and began to break it up. The beef heart strips were really hard and a little brittle, so they broke fairly easy. Mommy broke a couple of bite size pieces off to give to us and also gave us each a small strip. She thought it might be somethin’ we’d like to chew on ourselves. Ya’ know, kinda like a raw hide chew.

 Raena looking at the Evanger's beef heart strip

 

Well, she was wrong. When was the last time you saw a kitty gnawin’ on a raw hide? Mommy says she had a kitty that luvved things like that, but I’s can tell ya’ us girlys’ ain’t into that. Dezi and me both turned our noses up to that option really quickly. So mommy gave us the small bites she had broken off and took away the long strip. I’s sniffed ‘round ‘em fur a few seconds and took a piece in mines mouth and then spit it out. I’s looked at mommy and meowed ‘bout how these beef hearts was a bit on the hard and chewy side. So mommy took one of those strips and soaked it in some water to make it a bit softer. Yeah, I’s didn’t really like that either. What a bummer. Such a pawsum treat, bein’ good fur ya’ and only the one ingredient. But ifin I’s won’t eat it…I’s do have to give up 2 paws up, cuz it’s a quality treat and I’s can ‘magine doggies fur sure likin’ ‘em. Sissy? Do you wanna tell everypawdy what you thought?

          Sure Raena, fanks. Like Raena said, the Evanger’s Gently dried Beef Hearts are a good quality treat that can be fed to any of your meat eatin’ pets. They are large strips that are pretty easy to break into smaller pieces. They don’t have much of a smell, and we don’t think they reconstitute very well. ‘Course mommy only let the strip soak for just under 15 minutes (the bag recommended 2-3 minutes). Maybe a little more time would have purrduced a softer treat?. Anyways, me sniffed at the Evanger’s Beef Hearts a little and then turned mes nose up. Me didn’t even put a piece in mes mouth; so me can’t really say much ‘bout how they taste. Me agrees with Raena. These beef hearts would make a great treat fur doggies, and we’re sure there are kitties out there that would like them. We’re just a little spoiled and like a little softer treat. Cuz of the ingredients and the good fur ya’ factor, me will give these treats 1 paw up.

Thank you sweety. I won’t make a habit of taking over, and ya’ll did get to try out the new goodies, so you’ll still be a part of the post. Anyways, recently we were given the opportunity to try out a couple of new products from Collage.com’s new pet line. First let me explain a little about the products. We received a bowl and a pillow bed. They are completely customizable as you’ll see by the photos.

 

This is a sponsored post. We’ve been compensated for sharing. However, we always tell the truth; all opinions are our own. As always we only bring you products we use or have tried ourselves and think would be of interest to you our readers and friends.

When you go to the site and choose the item you want, you’re taken to a screen that allows you to add photos, writing, initials, designs and pretty much whatever your mind can think of. Now you all know I’m no techy. You don’t need to be. It’s a simple and really easy format to work with, and if you have any trouble there’s a number listed on every page for customer service help. You can preview your product and go back and change it all before you finalize it and save it for check out. And if you’re buying more than 1 item, the photos you upload are still available to choose for your next product, or you can choose all new ones.

Pillow Pet Bed from collage.com customized with photos of Dezi, Lexi and raena

Let’s take a look at the products themselves. First up the Cat Bowl. It’s a high quality plain white ceramic, fully finished large bowl. When I say fully finished, I mean that the bottom is glazed just like the inside, so no scratching your floors. Altho’ it says it’s dishwasher safe, because of the photos and finish, I would recommend hand washing. The bowl is 6 inches wide by 2 1/4 inches tall (deep). So it’s great for food or water. Collage.com’s recommendation is 1-40 photos for the bowl. But you will also have other options as well as changing the color by adding a background.

Now lets take a look at the Pillow Bed. As Dezi would say, OMC It’s amazing. First off at 40” X 30”, it’s huge. And it’s overstuffed and fluffy, with a plush fleece top and natural weave back. And the cover is removable for easy clean up. You can use anywhere from 1 to 200 photos in your design. And remember, you’ll have other options as well. We gave ours a space like background in Dezi’s signature bluish purple and added DezizWorld to the top. You can even choose the font and color of any writing as well as placement. You’re only limited by your creativity. And you all know this is the area where I’m lacking. But we think our pillow bed is great. Actually, I love it so much, I can’t bring myself to throw it on the floor for the girls to use. lol So, at the moment it rests at the foot of the bed where the girls wrestle with it and lay on it while I fold clothes and do other chores in the bedroom. As a testament to it’s softness, Raena kneads and suckles it. And if I’m being honest, my guess is, that Dezi does too. (shakes head) My spoiled little angels.
