A girl can never have too many dresses!

Mom says purple is my color - what do you think?

This month we received two great items to review
Vittles Vault Pet Food Container

Today we are going to review the
 Merrick Freeze Dried Real Salmon Recipe Treats. 
My Cheetah dress makes me feel wild! 
Do you think cheetahs eat salmon??

Key Benefits

  • Treats offer the benefits of raw nutrition in a safe and easy-to-serve freeze-dried form.
  • All-natural recipe includes real salmon as the first ingredient, so they’re high in protein and nutrition.
  • Features a hearty, wood-smoked taste that makes dogs go wild.
  • Specially formulated to mimic the ancestral canine diet with ingredients from USA family farms.
  • No grain, gluten, corn, wheat, soy, artificial flavors, colors or preservative

I am dressed to dine in my navy dress 
accented with delicate purple flowers.
 I can smell the wonderful Ingredients
Salmon, Whitefish, Dried Peas, Dried Potatoes, Gelatin, Salt, Mixed Tocopherols (preservative).

My navy gingham is pawfect for the upcoming fall pawties
and the delicious salmon smell has caught the attention
 of another Pug Fashion Star!

Hazel is looking ravishing in red gingham!

A Fun Weekend!

I sure had a fun 3 days at the
Upper Snake River Valley Dog Training Club
Obedience and Rally Trials

On Friday we entered Rally Novice
I finished this title last year but Mom thought it would be a fun no pressure way to start the weekend

I earned 89 out of 100 pts. and 3rd place

Saturday we were entered in 
Beginner Novice Obedience
I needed one more qualify to earn the title

 190.5 points for second place 
and my
Beginner Novice Obedience Title!

We also entered Rally Advanced
Mom wanted to get an idea of how I would do off leash
We didn't qualify because Mom missed a station.
But I stayed with her through the whole course
 and she was very pleased about that!


Sunday we did Beginner Novice again 
and we got 4th place with a 190 score

A great weekend!

Hazel got to have some fun too 
and brought home her own ribbon

At this trial they always have a Team event on Saturday
It is just for fun and the teams get very creative

Hazel's team was called
The Old Duffers
All four dogs were over 10 yrs old 
and the mom's dressed up like old ladies. 
Mom & Hazel rode into the ring in a wheelchair! BOL!

They played Lawrence Welk Music while they were heeling and did their best to entertain the audience

And because they were the only team that entered
they won 1st Place!!

A friend was taking pictures during the trial so we will share some of them when we get them

Antlers and WildFires

Good Morning Friends!

When Mom & Dad were in Great Falls, Montana
they spent some time walking in a mall 
to get some exercise
The mall had a PetsMart store.  
We have one opening soon in Pocatello
 so Mom wanted to check it out

They saw this awesome split antler
 and just knew they had to bring it home for me

These pictures show how much I enjoy my new antler chew!

Lots of marrow!

I am in antler chew heaven!

This is what our sky looked like yesterday.
We have had some wild fires in our area 
and a new one started Friday

The Powerline fire has spread quickly
 and already consumed over 50000 acres.
It has come within 4 miles of Pocatello's boundaries
At this time they have prevented the fire from moving closer to town.
 Unfortunately we are expecting dry thunderstorms later today with up to 50 mph winds
so the firefighters are working extra hard today. 
We pray for the safety of all those battling wildfires around the country.

As for us - we actually live a little north of Pocatello.
The air quality is horrible but we should be OK.

Nice Scenery on Flower Friday

We love Flower Friday with
the DB Boyz and Angel Dory!

Our flowers have been suffering with the heat 
so we told mom she could share some more photos 
from their trip last week

The first leg of the trip was
from Pocatello, Idaho to Great Falls, Montana

Great Falls is right on the Missouri River. 

Dad took some pictures before they left the next morning.

The next leg of the trip was two lane highway and there were a lot of historical landmarks to stop and see

this scenic stop was just before Fort Benton, MT.

More gorgeous views of the river 

This stop was a great outlook. 
 This is where Lewis and Clark stopped and were trying to decide which river to follow to make their way west

You literally could see forever!

We were somewhat surprised that the upper part of Montana we went through was so wide open.
We passed endless grain fields and that continued when we crossed the border into Canada.

Of course the best part of the trip was spending some time with our grandson and watching him play baseball.
The people of Swift Current, SK were so very friendly 
and helped make our visit even more fun.

#ChewyInfluencer July Review #2

Oh my goodness!
Mom realized that she did not get our review posted before they left on their trip
So here is our #2 Chewy July review

In the never ending quest
 to find foods that will entice Hazel to eat
we chose another canned dog food

Nutro Kitchen Classics Premium Loaf Variety Pack:
 Grass Fed Lamb & Brown Rice Dinner 
And Slow Cooked Chicken, Rice & Oatmeal Dinner 

Sorry about the sideways pic!

Key Benefits
Uses real meat for a savory flavor.
Nutrient-rich formulas promote a healthy metabolism.
Essential vitamins and minerals support a healthy immune system, strong muscles, and skin and coat health.
Limited ingredients reduce the chances of food sensitivity and help make digestion easier.
Made in the USA and free of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives.

Love that it is free of artificial stuff and is made in the USA!

We decided to try the Lamb & Brown Rice Flavor first
Mom adds it to our kibble along with some warm water

I love, love, love it!
Hazel liked it for a few days
 but like most everything else
her pickiness kicks in
 and it takes her FOREVER to decide to eat. 

So once again a split decision
It is a good quality food,
Mom likes the texture better than the 

Mom is still adding it to my kibble cause I gobble it up!
Thank you Miss Natalie and 
for offering to let us try this food. 

We get most all of our food and supplies from
where the prices are low, shipping is fast 
and customer service is beyond compare!
