Picky Eater Zero Loves Hungry Hound Beer Grain Dog Treats

Disclosure - KCTCL was compensated with Hungry Hound Beer Grain Treats for Zero to try as samples. All opinions contained within this post are of our own opinions and beliefs.

In the little town of Conklin, NY there is a dog treat company that creates dog treats from recycled brewers grain. Don't let the name fool you, these awesome little treats do not contain any type of beer or alcohol, but do contain amazing goodness that your dog(s) are sure to love. Spent grain that is used in the beer brewing process is normally skimmed and thrown out, but why throw out something that contains nutritional benefits for dog(s)? Hungry Hound utilizes these spent grains by creating their dog treats. As the company states "These delicious, crunchy beer grain treats won't get your dog drunk - but they will get him buzzing with excitement". Very creative tagline, if  I do say so. Hungry Hound Beer Grain Dog Treats are "All Natural Crack for Dogs". I can definitely agree with that statement!

Zero puts her nose up to more treats than any dog I've ever had, but not these little pieces of dog crack. She absolutely loved them! I was actually sad when the bag was empty because after that I'm sure you can guess what happened; she snubbed the rest of the treats. Even though no local store in my area carries these treats, I can still order them online. To which I most certainly will be doing.

So more about these "all natural crack for dogs" beer grain dog treats by Hungry Hound. They are produced with all local ingredients and even utilize local breweries to get the recycled brewers grain that goes into the treats. You can find a list of brewers on their website here. Other ingredients include flour, peanut butter, fresh local eggs, and parsley for doggie fresh breath. All ingredients bought locally by Hungry Hound. Supporting of their local economy is what gives this small business a very classy edge. Local and good treats for dogs. Win and Win in my book!

You can learn more about Hungry Hound on their website, Facebook, and Twitter pages at the links below! Make sure to let them know that Kathy's Calm to Chaos Life and Zero sent you!

Eukanuba 3D DentaDefense Offers Optimal Health Benefits For Your Dog! - REVIEW

Are you aware that only 10% of dog owners brush their dog's teeth on a regular basis? Are you within that 90% that doesn't? Dogs of all breeds and sizes can accumulate tartar build up on their teeth which can lead to teeth and health issues as early as the age of 3! Eukanuba has introduced a product that helps your canine companion with their dental issues. I strive to find the very best for my Zero. She deserves it! She shows me unconditional love with her singing and tail wagging and I in return need to show her the same back. Dogs aren't capable of telling us when something is wrong, so it's our duty to be an offensive dog owner and eliminate an issue from happening, rather than be a defensive dog owner and deal with an issue when it does. Teeth issues plague dog owners daily and Eukanuba and the 3-D DentaDefense now offer dog owners some assistance with their dog's teeth.

Going To College? Rent Your Textbooks & Save Big Bucks

When I was first introduced to I sat here for quite a few minutes going hmmmm where was this service when I was in college? I used to spend big bucks on college textbooks and after the semester was over at least half of them were not eligible for any buy back program because a new version was coming out! I can tell you I have a huge two foot long by 2 foot high box just packed full of my old college textbooks! Yes, I even carted those books from the old house to the new house last year. Sentimental value or maybe I felt a need to stay attached to them seeing I paid a good buck to get them. All to further my education, but also at the expense of my wallet.

What if I said this wallet saving service meant renting your textbooks? Rent them, yes I did say rent! Well why not? You can rent everything from a dress to jewelry to a car and a home, why not textbooks too? is a service that allows you to rent textbooks for a fraction of the cost compared to buying your books at the college bookstore or online retailer.  To give an example of the savings they offer college students on rental vs buy I did a little investigating. I'm considering going back to college to finish my Masters Degree and/or Certification in Computer Forensics. The one book that is required for the one class in the Computer Forensics curriculum is Digital Evidence and Computer Crime: Forensic Science, Computers & the Internet Third Edition which is currently available to purchase for $70 or I could easily just rent the same book/edition from CampusBookRentals at the cost of $19.36. This is a 72% savings! Check out here and see the savings difference!

With they make it easy to search for the books you need with their user friendly easy online ordering system. Simply Search, Order, Receive, Use, and Return the books when you are finished. Wallah! I bet you are saying it can't really be that easy, can it? Sure it can, just watch the video below and see for yourself how easy it is to rent college textbooks. They give you multiple options on how fast you want your books shipped (standard shipping is FREE both ways) and more options for return dates (days, weeks, full semester, or select your own return date)

When you rent your textbooks from you aren't only saving money, but you are also supporting Operation Smile. Operation Smile is an organization that provides life changing cleft lip surgeries to underpriviledged children in need. has pledged to donate part of the proceeds from every textbook rental to Operation Smile in order to cover the cost of 1,000 surgeries. To learn more about the good Operation Smile does and how you can help check out their website here.

Don't let going to college break the bank! It's expensive enough to begin with. Rent your books from CampusBookRentals and support a great organization at the same time.

RoboForm - A Sweepstakes Lovers Best Friend - REVIEW & GIVEAWAY


As most of you know I enter a lot of sweepstakes online. It can be time consuming to go through site after site having to enter all of your personal information in or creating accounts and now you have to remember log in IDs and passwords. I think this pure fact alone is what drives people away from the world of online sweepstakes, it's very time consuming. Rest assured there is a resolution to save you time and energy all while managing log ins, passwords, and all of your information. RoboForm!! Roboform is a program you can run from a PC, Mac, Tablet, or mobile device that stores all of your information, log ins, and passwords. Hence costing you just one click to auto-fill your information for a sweepstakes rather than taking a minute or two to do so.

I've been using RoboForm now for close to two years to do my daily sweepstakes entries and with the assistance of this program I can get between 200-300 sweepstakes entries done in about two hours time. Of course, I've mastered my own system and everyone has their own way of doing things, but the program has saved me a great deal of time along the way. Not only do I use it for sweepstakes entry information but also for filling in my personal information for anything; whether it be to get a coupon for a free product or to log into my many different shopping accounts I have. Its main purpose is that of a password manager. I like knowing that I have an electronic version of my passwords stored. Did I mention stored where I can gain access to them every where I am?

I was given access and the opportunity to join StyleUnited as part of a SheSpeaks campaign.

Feed Your Dog The Very Best Natural Balance REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

Everyone knows I love and adore my dog Zero. I've also made it my mission to feed her the very best food and treats that I could possibly afford. After reading about ingredients in dry dog food it began to scare me. I've changed her food from one to the other to another and saw little to no results as far as energy and also saw a lot of weight gain. This is a dog that should be bouncing off the walls most the time she is awake because she is a Boxer. Boxers love to run, play, and just be goofy! Which has been evident based on some of the pictures I post. Thanks to a twitter party I was introduced to a dog food company that I otherwise knew very little about. I had seen their products and used treats here and there, but didn't have a vast amount of knowledge on their pet foods. But thanks to that twitter party I learned a lot about their pet foods and now here I am to pass on that knowledge to my followers about this company.

Rascal Flatts - CHANGED New CD Released 4/3 - REVIEW

I have been a Rascal Flatts fan every since their first Album! I can remember when they sang on American Idol when Carrie Underwood was a contestant! My gosh how I fell more in love with their music right then and there. Since the trio of Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus, and Joe Don Rooney made their debut in 2000 they have had 13 #1 singles, sold over 21 million albums, and even have had their music digitally downloaded 25 million times. Their album sales and downloads speak volumes for the melodies this trio puts together! The launch of their newest album was given a name the band wanted all of it's fans to realize a lot of had happened. What did happen was they had now joined forces with Spalding Entertainment releasing what is now their first album with them appropriately named Changed.

Soggy Doggy Doormat - REVIEW & Coupon Code

I have always had the problem of needing to keep a towel at the door for the dog's paws. This has been more so the case since moving in July than it ever was, for some reason the lawn gets extra soggy by my front door and will occasional flood when it rains. I just kept a towel by the door and made the dogs walk onto it and stand on it, this didn't really do the job as I had to clean up muddy dog prints anyways. I am about to introduce you to the solution to my wet and muddy dog paw problem. (I do find the best products don't I?) This is a really smart idea and makes me wonder if someone from one of the vet tech schools invented it.

Friday, February 17, 2012 - Keep Your Pockets Full

In today's economy it feels good to be able to maximize your money, stretch it so to say.. in ways that were not available even as little as five years ago. Even if you haven't studied accounting at accredited online colleges, you can still be great with money. There are rebate sites, coupon bloggers, extreme couponers, and even printable coupon sites.. but what about those non-grocery store purchases? Clothing department stores, computer stores, flowers, and travel expenses? How nice would it be to have a reliable site that would be your go to for coupons for other items that are not of the grocery store nature, knowing that the coupons were put there by other fellow coupon money saving lovers? Well now there is.. this site has over 250,000 visitors per month featuring 50,000 coupons for 1500 stores.  

Let me introduce you to CouponChief is literally an online database just FULL of coupon and discount codes for everything from computers to clothing to even travel. CouponChief has been recognized by such sites as Mashable, Wall Street Journal, and Lifehacker as being a "valuable internet resource". Now they have the honor of being featured on Kathy's Calm To Chaos Life as my "GO TO" site for coupons and discount codes!

Light Up Your Dog for Safety Dog E Glow - REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

Winner Comment #101 Congrats!

Have you ever walked your dog at night and worried that traffic might not see you? That is my problem being here in this complex. The buildings themselves have lights on them, but the horse shoe road and center cut through road have no street lights. I have resorted to carrying a flashlight at night when I take Zero for her nightly walks. Being I'm a night owl we tend to go out for a walk or to potty all hours through the night. A few times now I've had my flashlight batteries die and this complex has traffic through it all hours of the night and day, I've been coming through the center road when someone has been walking their dog and have to admit it was hard to see the dog. I now have a resolution to this night time walking issue, let me introduce you to Dog-E-Glow!
