Rugs for Pugs on Ice

Last weekend we got some very wet snow 
It thawed a little and then got cold again

 our yard turned into a hard crunchy snow and ice field

It made it difficult for getting out
especially for Mr Bailey

Mom and Dad got the idea of putting some old rugs on top of the ice to make it easier for us to get out into the yard

Look Bailey! 

Your very own carpet to the grass

Dad managed to get some of the grass cleared off

Alright - 
duties done -

Let's get back in the house where it's warm

it's Official - I'm A Pug!

The circumstances of my birth were such 
that although I know I am a PUG 
and all of you know I am a PUG, 
there were no registration papers saying
 that I am a purebred PUG.  

No Big Deal


You have to be registered with AKC
if you want to enter AKC Obedience & Rally trials
(which Mom & I want to do)

Fortunately AKC lets pups like me apply for what is called 
Purebred Alternative Listing

Mom had to fill out some papers with all my vital statistics,
 and tell AKC why she thought I was a PUG

they wanted a couple of mug shots 

Front View

Side View

and of course some green papers and assurance that 
I had my lady operation. 

We put all that in the mail a few weeks ago
and guess what came in the mail on Saturday!

An official paper that says I am a PUG

(we all knew that all along didn't we?)

and my official name is

Maybe She's Mabelene

Glad I am all official now!

January Chewy Review Hop

It is Chewy Review time!!
And new this month! 

There will be a Chewy blog hop
 the 3rd Tuesday of each month

You can post your review any day of the month
you want  - just remember to connect your review to the hop on the 3rd Tuesday

This month we received 
Fromm Oven Baked Parmesan Cheese Treats


Fresh Wisconsin Parmesan cheese, pea flour, potato flour, tapioca, whole peas, chicken fat, tomato pomace, fresh cranberries, sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, split peas, green beans, green bell peppers, celery, beets, oregano, parsley, lettuce, watercress, spinach.

These were bigger than we expected 
(that is a dime next to it) 
and are hard and crunchy

Mom managed to break one up into smaller pieces
 but some were too hard to break easily

We did notice the WONDERFUL smell
even Mom thought they smelled good!


Eye popping yummy!

Yep! Three Yummies!!!

So here is our honest verdict

Although these treats smelled delicious
and we thought they were yummy
they are not great treats for us

We do not do hard crunchy treats very well
especially Bailey & Hazel
Mom would have to break them up
 and some of them were too hard
We DO think that bigger dogs would really like these

We are going to pass these on to our cousin Tucker
he really likes biscuits!

Thank you Chewy for always having the best prices, wonderful customer service and fast shipping!
And thanks to Miss Sydney 
for always giving us great items to review

disclaimer - as part of the Chewy blogger Review program we were provided one bag of Fromm dog treats free of charge in exchange for our honest review

When We See Sugar Smile

Today we are joining OZ and many others to show support for our friend 

Sugar has a beautiful smile
When we see Sugar smile we see the joy she brings to all our lives 
and especially to her pawrents who love her and always do everything they can to give Sugar a wonderful life.

Today Sugar is having surgery to remove a mass on her spleen. We want to let her family know we are thinking of Sugar today and sending POTP for a successful surgery.

When we see Sugar smile
we see love

Freezing Cold & Christmas Presents!

It has been so cold here

that Santa Snoopy had an icicle beard!

Before we show you our Christmas presents
 from Dory and Arty
Mr Bailey wants you to see he is getting all better

Yes friends, my swelling is all gone!

If you look closely you can see my stitches
I have been a good boy 
and I don't have to wear the cone of shame anymore. 
The dogtor will take the stitches out on Thursday

Although I was not feeling too great on Christmas Day
Opening these presents from my beautiful Dory
made me feel all good inside!

Zukes Wild Rabbit treats are one of my favorites!
thank you Dory - how did you know?

Mabel's box from Arty had Peanut Butter flavor treats!

we have never tried this flavor before
they sound yummy

What do you mean I have to share?
These are MINE!

Arty also sent me this cute reindeer

Hey! did you know you have a red nose?

Now I can learn to be a reindeer trainer
Thank you Arty!

Hazel got a present from her fella Oreo

She had fun unwrapping it

Thank you Oreo!

I love my hedgehog!
He makes funny grunting noises 
and he also makes a great pillow!

After 3 nights of below zero temperatures
we are warming up a little!
