Words on Wednesday

Hello Furiends

We are sorry that we have not been posting and commenting as much as usual.
We told you a few weeks ago that Mom was having some problems with her blood pressure in December.
It was bad enough that she spent a night in the hospital 
and had some tests done.
The good news is her heart is just fine, but unfortunately Mom could not adjust to the new medicine they put her on.
It made her very tired and had a lot of brain fog
 making it hard to be on the computer much. 
Today she is starting on a different medicine and we are really hoping she will be back to her normal self very soon. 

We have one more Chewy review to do for January,
we hope to get that post up tomorrow!

January #ChewyInfluencer Review

The best part about being a #ChewyInfluencer
is getting to try new food! 

When we saw
Wellness CORE Simply Shreds Grain-Free Chicken, Chicken Liver & Broccoli Wet Dog Food Topper
as one of the choices 

we were excited to give it a try!

Chewy was kind enough to send us
a pack of 12 pouches

Each pouch has only 5 Ingredients:

Chicken, Chicken Broth, Water Sufficient For Processing, Chicken Liver, Broccoli.
some of the pouches seem to have more broth than others but we don't mind  - the broth is really tasty.

in the broth there is real shredded chicken,
 and a few little chunks of liver. We are not sure about the broccoli - it is pretty small.

Here are the Key Benefits

  • Provides a boost of high-quality protein and nutrients with just five ingredients—shredded chicken, chicken liver, broccoli, chicken broth, and pure water.
  • High-quality protein from chicken, plus B-vitamins from chicken liver, and vitamin E and fiber from broccoli.
  • Unadulterated protein source with no fillers, grains, or starches, so it helps support a diet similar to that of your dog’s primal ancestors.
  • Convenient tear-away pouch makes it easy to top dry food or wet food, or give as a side dish or high-protein snack.
  • Contains no grain, meat by-products, wheat, corn, soy, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.

Now for the real test
Does Picky Hazel like it as a topper on her dinner??

The answer is a resounding YES!

She liked it so much that mom added some to our next Chewy order along with a box of another flavor variety.
They also have Simply Shreds for Cats

Monday Movie

Happy Monday Everyone!
Today we have another video for you
This was taken last November at an agility fun session
The cold and snow during the winter
 limits our time to practice agility outside. 
Once a month our instructor rents a covered horse arena for whoever wants to come and play. 

This was our first time attending 
so a few things to say before you watch

This is a practice and training session
Being our first time there, I was a little excited 
and got off course a few times, but I sure had fun!

I must apologize for Mom - she got lost at the end
and uh please forgive my uh "indiscretion" 
part way through. 
Nothing like being excited and the smell of horses to get things moving BOL!

A note on the weave poles:
12 poles were set up but being a beginner I only needed to do 6

We are looking forward to going again this Saturday

Flower Friday

It's time for Flower Friday 
with Miss Rosy!

It is too cold here in Idaho for outdoor flowers
but our Rosy Rose bush is blooming in the house!

We keep it near the kitchen window 
so it can get lots of sunshine.

We have enjoyed watching it grow 
almost as much as we have loved 
watching Miss Rosy bloom and grow!

#ChewyInfluencer December Review #2

We got little behind with our Chewy Reviews
so here now is our December review #2

We were asked by Miss Natalie if we would like to review

the Flexi New Comfort Retractable Tape Dog Leash.

Enjoy a new leash experience with the Flexi New Comfort Retractable Tape Dog Leash. From the company who has a history of innovation, beginning with their original high-tech retraction system, this leash runs smoothly in and out so that your dog can run freely—and that’s just the start. This perfectly designed two-color leash has a color-coordinated brake button to keep your dog right where you want them. The short-stop one-handed braking system keeps this leash reliable and the ergonomic soft-grip is comfortable for a fully functional design. 

you can even add accessories that clip on
like the Flexi Multi Box Dog Leash Accessory 
(it can hold treats or poop bags)
or Flexi LED Lighting System 
 for an easy and enjoyable walk every time.

This Flexi Retractable Leash also includes a safety collar

The idea is to clip the leash to both your own collar 
and the safety collar.
If for some reason your collar breaks -
 the safety collar will - well - keep you safe!

Mom was very impressed with the quality of this Flexi Leash
It really does run very smoothly in and out
and the brake works very well

the Flexi New Comfort Retractable Tape Dog Leash
will come in very handy when we go to our 
obedience/rally/agility trials 
and I need a little exercising to get my "duties" done.
It will allow me more freedom than my regular 6 ft. leash. 

This Flexi New Comfort Retractable Tape Dog Leash
comes in five colors and five different sizes

It's My Gotcha Day!

Three years ago today

Mom and Dad got up early on a very cold winter day 
and drove 300 miles to Oregon to pick up a little pug puppy

Here I am in my new home

Checking out my new big brother
I miss him

It was so very cold so I got a new coat to wear

I found lots of new toys to play with

and mom's soft robe to snuggle in for a nap

I got my very own little bed to sleep in

and a wonderful furever home!

Happy Gotcha Day to me!

Tuesday Thanks and Thoughts

A lot of you admired our new header

Well we want to give a great big thank you to 
Ann at Zoolatry for her wonderful design!

And another thank you goes to

Our friends at

They surprised Mom with a tower of goodies!

We do not know any other company that treats its customers as well as they do.
We are honored to be a #ChewyInfluencer!

On another note:
Mom is having issues with her blood pressure being too high
So far tests on her heart are normal but the medicine they put her on makes her tired and woozie and is not totally controlling it. The holidays has made it difficult to get back with the doctor but she hopes to see someone today. 
We have our paws crossed they can get things figured out soon.
