It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them,
and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart.
If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog,
and I will become as generous and loving as they are.

Napping for Bailey Day

Last week our furiend
made his journey to the Rainbow Bridge
He was diagnosed with cancer last year 
and fought so hard to stay with his family
But his body grew weary and it was time to say goodbye

Today we are joining our host 

with a special 
Nap for Bailey Day


Well if there is one thing us pugs do well 
besides eat
is nap!




Mr Bailey hopes that if he takes up enough room,
 Hazel will get up and move


A little overflow here! 


Good thing the Hazel's hedgehog is available as a pillow!



On nice days napping out on the deck is great


And there is nothing sweeter than sister snuggle naps


We are sending our love and hugs
to Bailey's family
we hope you have some smiles today 
as we honor your special boy

The Flats Come Home and Gifts


Has it been a week already 
since Dory and Arty were here at the PugRanch?!


Mr Bailey has had a little extra spring in his step
 and a smile on his face since meeting Dory in the furs!


Dory and Arty brought The Flats home


 I could smell all the loving touches from our friends


And they brought us some neat gifts 
from their home state of California


Next spring we can plant some California wildflowers!!!




Look! A Giant Redwood Start - just like Frankie & Ernie's



We helped mom plant it in a pot


It can grow to be 300 feet tall!!
How many days do you think that will take?

Thank you so much
Dory & Arty for our wonderful pressies!


Next time Hazel will show you the special gifts 
that Oreo sent for her

June Chewy Review #1

We are so happy to be a #ChewyInfluencer


Every month we get to choose an item to review 
and Chewy sends it to us fast as lightning - 
at no cost to us

All they ask for is an honest review


This month we chose
 Zukes Tiny Naturals Delightful Duck Recipe

We are a big fan of Zukes treats so it was a no brainer to 
want to try these new Tiny Natural treats


Zuke's Tiny Naturals Delightful Duck Recipe Dog Treats are super tiny but full of flavor, which makes them powerful motivators for learning new tricks. Dogs of all sizes can’t turn down these moist morsels made with savory farm-raised duck, sweet potatoes and rich coconut oil. These soft bites contain no grains and give your furry sidekick nutritious protein, dietary fiber, and antioxidants in a bite-sized treat.
Key Benefits
  • Highly palatable training treat
  • Tons of flavor from duck meat
  • Tiny soft morsels are great for rewarding dogs of any size
  • No grain, corn, wheat or soy
  • Made in the USA

These treats may be tiny - that is a dime in the middle,
 but they are full of good stuff

Ingredients

Duck, chickpeas, peas, sweet potatoes, glycerin, pea protein, agave syrup, gelatin, coconut oil, flaxseed, salt, flax meal, citric acid, lactic acid, succinic acid, natural flavor, sunflower lecithin, mixed tocopherols, rosemary extract, vitamin e supplement, vitamin a supplement, zinc proteinate



We think these treats are mighty tasty
but Mom wants to tell you 
what she likes about these tiny treats

PugRanch Mom here!
I LOVE these new Zukes Tiny Treats
Because we can go through a lot of treats when training for Rally and Obedience, I look for treats that are small and easily consumed. These new Zukes Tiny Treats are smaller and softer than the Zukes Mini Treats. I think these Tiny Treats would stay somewhat soft even when left out as opposed to the Mini's that can turn to teeny hocky pucks when they dry out. And at less than 1.5 calories per treat, we can have a good training session without worrying.

I have already added a bag to our next Chewy Auto Ship order. They will be the perfect training treat and great way to reward Mabel for a job well done.
In fact I took them with us
to her very first Rally Trial on Saturday

We will let you know how we did tomorrow!

Thank you Chewy for great prices, fast shipping and pawsome customer service!



disclaimer - as part of the #ChewyInfluencer program we provided this bag treats free of charge in exchange for our honest review
