Loving Four-Legged Stars on Netflix #StreamTeam

I am a Netflix Stream Team member and have been given a Netflix membership to help facilitate my posts. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

I don't know about your kids, but mine sure do love a movie that stars some four-legged creatures. Especially dogs. Of course, while watching said dog movies I will get bombarded with the "Can we get a dog?" question over and over again. For the past few years I've become pretty used to getting this question a lot and answering with a simple no.  But now that my youngest is five and I am definitely not having any more kids, I started want a dog too. So for Christmas, we surprised our boys with a Labradoodle puppy, which we affectionately named Vader. (Yes, as in Darth Vader. We are Star Wars geeks after all).

Even though we now have a dog of our own, the boys still really love watching movies about dogs. They have watched Disney's "Buddies" movies countless times (there are 7 of them on Netflix), though I think their favorite is probably Supper Buddies. Netflix also just recently added a new original animated series from Dreamworks: The Adventures of Puss in Boots. My 9 year old especially has gotten a real kick out of this cat and his antics!

The world's greatest feline fighter, lover and milk connoisseur is back in this original series filled with daring adventures, great boots, and laugh-out-loud fun! The entire family will be entranced by Puss' fantastical CG world filled with new characters, exotic locations and mystical tales that make up the stuff of legends. There's nothing that can get in this celebrated swashbuckling kitty's way...except maybe a hairball.

Check out some of these other streaming titles featuring your favorite four-legged friends!

The New Year is here which means a lot of us have made resolutions to get in better shape. It may mean joining a local gym, running through your neighborhood or working out at home. Regardless where you decided to work out, something we all seem to need to get us pumped is some good music to listen to.  Smartphones and MP3 players have made it easy for us to carry our music with us everywhere, but what about those dreadful earbuds?

Has this ever happened to you? You're on the elliptical (or any other piece of cardio equipment) and your pumping away, working up a sweat. But as you are jamming and exercising to your favorite tunes, that wire that goes from your earbuds to your phone is flopping all over the place in front of you. Then oops, your arms hits it and your earbuds come flying out of your ears? Just having that wire flailing about is super annoying. I've tried threading it through my top, but that doesn't usually work out too well either. Now with the Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless Earbud Headphones available at Best Buy, you can say goodbye to that wire.

Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless is an all-in-one training solution that combines an in-ear biometric heart rate monitor, immersive Dolby® Digital sound and real-time voice coaching. It’s US Military grade durability certifications will inspire runners, cyclists, and exercisers of all types to beat their best performance.

With a built-in intelligent app - Jabra Sport Life - exercisers will also get the most out of their Sport Pulse Wireless earbuds, helping them plan, track and evaluate each workout. It has never been so easy to test fitness levels and aerobic capacity, adjust heart rate zone levels to optimize training, and set goals based on distance, time or calories burned

Compatible with smartphones with BT capabilities.

The Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless is so much more than just headphones. I have to say that I love the idea of the real-time voice coaching that gives feedback on your workout in real time. That would be a great way to get some extra motivation. I would love to have a set of these and I am totally putting them on my birthday wishlist for the Spring!

At time of posting, the Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless Earbud Headphones are $20 off at Price subject to change at anytime.
