Back in February my pet life changed forever (furrever) when I adopted my Chiweenie Finnie… He’s the apple of my eye and always by my side. But we still felt like our family was missing something.

Then into our lives came this little nugget…

We toiled with names for her and nothing really stuck. We tried Roxie, Rosie, Jasmine, you name it, we called her that name. Then around a week after we got her my husband and I were watching Raiders of the Lost Ark… He looked at me and said “What do you think of the name Indiana?”

And it stuck. We made it Facebook-official, updated her vet records, and got her a name tag. Little Indie was ours. But, like most puppies, she smells. Bad. I wasn’t used to the constant baths since Finnie only really needed a weekly wash. Indiana gets a bath every few days.

I had been so worried about what to use on her tender skin and soft fur, then I got an email from Australian brand Rufus & Coco to talk about their line of pet care products which are now conveniently  located at PetSmart.

They sent over the line of dog shampoos for me to try out on my pooches. I was excited after reading up of the brand – Rufus & Coco is a wholly Australian based pet care brand (named for the two most popular dog Aussie dog names!) and has the love of our pets in mind in every product. The shampoo I received are all natural and hypo-allergenic so be gentle. I have had dogs with high allergic reactions to chemical based products so to find a brand that takes the animal’s health to heart is a great thing.

Finn has adapted well to his new baby sister. They constantly play together, and at the end of their play sessions get their snuggle on…
