#ChewyInfluencer February Review #2

Oh my goodness!
It is the last day of February 
and we have another #ChewyInfluencer item 
to tell you about

Merrick Fresh Kisses Double-Brush Coconut Oil & Botanicals Large Grain-Free Dental Dog Treats

Merrick's one-of-a-kind dental dog treats 
are designed to clean teeth and freshen breath. 
Their innovative shape and all-natural ingredients, 
including botanical oils and mint breath strips, 
keep your pup's mouth smelling fresh and clean.


The combination of coconut oil with peppermint, 
lemongrass and rosemary oils smelled wonderful

I'll take it from here Mom

 Let me show you some of the Key Benefits while I check out this dental chew

  • Helps clean teeth, fight plaque and tartar, and freshen doggy breath with unique shape and botanical formula.
  • Designed with a double-brush action to get in between teeth and help keep them clean with every bite.
  • Formulated with coconut oil and a special blend of peppermint, lemongrass, and rosemary oils to keep breath fresh for on demand smooches.
  • It’s easily digestible since it’s made with natural peas, tapioca and gelatin, with no potatoes or grains

It was nice and chewy
and even though it was a large size

It only took me a few minutes...

to have it half gone!

Now I thought it was delicious
but Mom was hoping that it would last longer
If we were to get them again we would get a smaller size. Mom got the large thinking I would get some chewing time out of it, but it is too big for me to eat all at once.

We thank Chewy for letting us try these dental chews

Remembering Sarge

Last week we were so sad to hear that Sarge made his unexpected journey to the Rainbow Bridge
Sarge was one of our earliest blogger furiends 

Winter 2013 our Angel Greta entered
 her very first Blogville event
A Blogville Sled Day hosted by Sarge 
and they became great friends

Sarge was not only Blogville's Top Cop
he was also one of Blogville's most eligible bachelors
and he loved to date the ladies 
while being the pawfect gentleman

Angel Greta's very first date was with Sarge

They had the most wonderful time
 Sarge always held a very special place in Greta's heart
We are sure she was one of the first to greet him 
at the bridge

The next year it was Hazel that won the privilege 
of a St. Patrick's Day date with Sarge.

Sarge was always up for a good time 

Whether it was sliding in the pumpkin guts 

Or celebrating New Years
It was always a fun time with Sarge 

Sure gonna miss you furiend

Winter is Back

After several weeks of unusually mild (for Idaho) weather,
winter decided to come back

Can you see me standing against the fence?

I was saying hello to the neighbor dog

We did not get as much snow as they predicted
 but it is going to get cold
only in the 20's for the high 
and maybe more snow by the end of the week.

Flower Friday Peas!

It is time for

Hazel & I were out in the yard this morning
and remembering last winter when we had so much snow
 we did not know what to do with it all

 As you can see we have no snow now
 and we haven't had any for a while

The temps have been fairly mild for February - 
in the 40's and 50's

The grass is still mostly brown

But wait!

What is that sprouting up amongst the leaves??

It's a volunteer pea plant from last years garden!!

How crazy is that??

#ChewyInfluencer January Review #2

For our second Chewy review item we chose

Halo Liv-a-Littles Grain-Free 100% Chicken Breast Freeze-Dried Dog & Cat Treats

Halo's meat based diets use only WHOLE MEAT protein and say "NO" to meat meals of any kind in our natural treats for dogs and cats. The freeze-dried dog and cat treats let you reward your pet with the taste and benefits of a high-protein snack. These freeze-dried chicken treats can be given whole or easily crumbled and added to food as a tasty incentive at mealtime. Halo’s highly digestible natural treats are made of the finest quality ingredients for a happy pet—inside and out.

We thought the container was pretty small 

But it is packed with the freeze dried chicken


Chicken, Water, Sodium Phosphate, Salt And Carrageenan.

mmmmmmm they smell pretty good!

The pieces of chicken are different sizes 
and they break very easily

Enough talk Mom! Let me try one!

Nom Nom Nom

I would like another please!

So - Hazel & I both like these treats 
and Hazel likes some crumbled on top of her dinner 
the treats do crumble easily - 
there is some powder in the jar.

The jar does seem kind of small for the price of $7.79
but then - it is freeze dried chicken

Thank you Chewy for letting us try these treats
