June Chewy Review #2

This month Chewy was kind enough to send us
two items to review

We liked the Ideal Balance treats we reviewed in May
so we thought we would try the 
Ideal Balance Breakfast Medley treats

We have mom trained to give us treats in the morning 
while she is eating breakfast

Just as humans need a great breakfast to give us a good start to the day, our dogs need a boost in the mornings, too. Breakfast Medleys are tasty, soft, waffle-shaped breakfast treats for your dog so he can enjoy a great snack as he starts his day.

Key Benefits
  • Natural, grain-free treats
  • Real chicken is the #1 ingredient
  • No corn, wheat or soy
  • No artificial preservatives, colors or flavors
  • Recommended for adult and mature adult dogs
  • Made in the USA

They look like a waffle and are bigger than a quarter

That is too big for us but they are soft enough 
to break up easily


Chicken, Peas, Potatoes, Chicken Meal, Tapioca, Cane Molasses, Glycerin, Chicken Fat, Egg Product, Natural Flavors, Dried Skim Milk, Cinnamon, Citric Acid, Lactic Acid, Mixed Tocopherols for freshness

That all sounds like good stuff mom

We did not go crazy for it like we did the 
Ideal Balance Soft Baked Naturals

But we did like them enough to ask for more!

And look!

Yesterday we got a surprise package 

Look Mom! 
Chewy sent you some summer fun stuff

A tote bag, beach towel, flip flops, drinking cup
and it looks like Earl like the cool shades!

Thank you so much Chewy!

You're the BEST!!!

The best prices, best shipping 
and The BEST Customer Service around!

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


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!

Seeing our Sweeties!

Friday was such an exciting day

We watched and waited for Dory & Arty to arrive 

MOM!! They're Here!!!

We barked and barked
They're Here! They're Here!

and Dory and Arty barked and barked
We're Here! We're Here!

We barked

 Welcome to The PugRanch! 

Come on in!

We showed them around our yard

Come on Arty!  Let's do Zoomies!!!!!
some of you may have seen the zoomie video that
their momma posted on facebark
Oh we had fun!

I thought Arty was very handsome and got a little flirty!

Mr Bailey and Arty had some man to man conversation

 Bailey was a little awestruck by Dory

She was even more beautiful than he imagined

Can you believe it?
Dory and Arty relaxing on our deck!

Our moms visited and enjoyed some lunch 

Dory showed off the collar flower Bailey gave to her

I had some late birthday presents for Arty

A candy date for Mayor 
needs to look good on the campaign trail

a new collar and bow tie have him looking fine!

A big thanks to 
creating this special bone for Arty

All too soon it was time for 
Dory, Arty and their momma to head on their way 

We loved having them here at the PugRanch

Later in the week we will show you the wonderful gifts 
they brought for us
and Hazel got some pressies from her sweetie Oreo

Feeling Spunky!

Because of the special visitors that are coming today
we all had to have a bath

Now I, Bailey, do not like to have a bath
I will run and hide if I can

But there is something about getting a bath
that gets an old guy feeling a little spunky!

Or could it be because



That is right!
Dory and Arty are going to be here
at The PugRanch!!!!
