Beyond 50's Mystery Shopper

Secret Shopper

If you missed the big event, we've got it covered. Beyond 50 is always on the lookout for what's trendy, unique and innovative. Here's our
"Best of Show" finds:

Northwest Pet & Companion Fair
It was a zoo there! Every imaginable type of dog (that couldn't wait to get in) walked through the door with their owner. One person brought their long snake wrapped around its neck, an occasional bird on the shoulder, and a ferret went in to visit. It was interesting to see that the people of Nepal in the Himalayans make their own dog chew out of yak and cow milk. One vendor offered to find out your dog's breed through DNA testing. There was even a super-drink for pets to slow down aging from free radicals.

When it comes to feeding your dog, have you tried chickpeas with spirulina and chia seeds? How about an exotic mix of pheasant, bison, elk, and salmon with an herb mix?

If your home smells from pet urine or odor, no problem. There is a natural (non-toxic) way to deal with it. You can even spray this on the offensive smelling animal, like a skunk directly. But if it's a messy floor, there is such a thing as a really quiet vacuum that's 5X more powerful than an upright. What's great too is that it won't recirculate the dust. And, don't forget to wash your hands with a gritty and dry organic soap mix made of coconut after handling your pet. It's such a tough cleaner, you can even clean your bathroom with it.
