Our second Chewy review for this month is for

Wellness CORE Grain Free 100% Turkey Freeze Dried Natural Dog Treats

If your dog loves meat, Wellness CORE Grain Free 100% Turkey Freeze Dried Natural Dog Treats are the perfect snack. These protein-packed bites are made from 100% real turkey and freeze-dried to lock in nutrients and flavor. Freeze-dried treats are a safe and convenient way to introduce the benefits of a raw diet into your pup’s routine without upsetting his stomach.

Ingredients: Freeze Dried Turkey
And that is it - turkey and only turkey!
and just 2 kcals per treat!

I happened to be in the other room
 when Mom opened the package.
I immediately came running 
and this was my reaction!

 Hazel and I give these freeze dried Turkey treats
8 paws up!

Mom gives them to us a training treats
 and they would also be a great topper on our meals

We would like to thank Miss Natalie and our friends at for being the best company ever 
and giving us the opportunity to try new things

#ChewyInfluencer July Review

Once again the month has gotten away from us
 and we have two Chewy reviews to do!

Our first review is for 
Earthborn Holistic EarthBites Skin & Coat 
Natural Moist Treats For Dogs

Key Benefits
  • Made with real molasses, honey & maple syrup.
  • Contains lean, whitefish and salmon meal proteins blended with peas, apples, blueberries, carrots and spinach for high palatability.
  • The balanced ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids plays a vital role in healthy skin, hair coat and immune function.
  • Made without grain or gluten.
  • Works as an excellent training aid.

We have had the cheese flavor before and loved them
 so we were excited to try this formula
 made with salmon, whitefish, veggies and fruits 

Hurry Mom! I am licking my lips in anticipation

Mom says these seemed a little dryer than the cheese flavor and were a little harder to break up 
but on the plus side they don't crumble much

I say YUMMY!!!!

Thank you for letting us try these great treats!

We Went Camping! Sort of

Finally we planned the first trip out 
in the new wheelie house!
 We weren't going too far
The Caribou National Forest just over an hour or so away

Hazel told me how fun camping is and I was really excited

Are we there yet Dad???

 We found the pawfect spot
right by the creek and plenty of shade
and that 

is when things went awry

We got out to survey the spot and discovered that some 
very inconsiderate campers
 had emptied their sewage on the ground near the creek!! 


Then to make things more interesting
Mom was walking me & Hazel around and I was nose to the ground taking in all the new smells when suddenly..
I started sneezing - HARD
and then wheezing and sneezing
We got back in the pick up and after a bit the sneezing eased up but not enough that Mom & Dad quit worrying 
so we headed home. 

On the way home we did see some interesting things

We got behind a cattle drive!

 There were cattle dogs and horses and lots of cows

Then we got behind this solar car!!

It did not travel very fast - about 25 mile per hour

By the time we got home the sneezing had about stopped
We still wanted to camp so we did the silliest thing

We camped at Camp PugRanch!

Dad set up the wheelie house. opened the gates to the yard and used our camping pens to keep us safe
Then he put the rugs down and got out the camping chairs

After all that work it was time for a nap

In the evening we got the campfire going

Dad fixed some Jiffy Pop

Can you believe it was my first time eating popcorn??

We got to see a beautiful sunset

Here is a little video of me & Hazel 
playing by the light of the campfire!

Then we went to bed in the wheelie house
and I slept like a log.

While it wasn't the camping trip we envisioned
we still had a lot of fun

Mabel & Mr Stinky

The other day I spotted something moving in the grass

Hello!  What is your name??

 HEY! Come back here!

Don't you want to play??

Mom says I was very lucky
 that Mr Stink Bug was feeling friendly 
and did not raise his butt to me

Thankful Thursday

Mabel & Hazel said I could have the blog today to tell you about the most amazing weekend.

We are so thankful that we were able to gather with family to celebrate the wedding of our granddaughter.

Cierra & Jacob are both in the Air Force 
and stationed at Travis Air Force Base in California

They chose to get married on Sunday July 1st
at Donner Lake, Truckee, CA

My son found a large cabin through Airbnb 
that was only 10 minutes from the lake
It was large enough for Stan & I, my son & wife, their oldest daughter Shea, youngest son Rob and son Bodie who flew down from Canada where he is coaching baseball for the summer. There was also the other grandma, an aunt & uncle, the maid of honor, and the photographer all staying at the cabin. It was so fun to all be together. 

Jacob stayed at place nearby with his Dad & sister that flew in from Pennsylvania, the best man & his wife  
and two of his good friends. 

We are so thankful everyone arrived safe!

Saturday evening we went to the lake
 to take some pre-wedding photos

Now let me tell you about the photographer
She is the daughter of my son's boss. 
A very talented and special young woman
she jumped at the chance to photograph
 this special weekend for us and flew into Reno 
with air miles donated by her dad. 
She stayed at the cabin with us and felt just like family
I am so thankful to have met this lovely woman

It was a beautiful evening 
as the soon to be newlyweds strolled on the beach

Stan captured this great photo with his phone

Then it was the big day

Hair and makeup done 

Her Mom helping Cierra into her dress

A hug from Dad and it is time to go

It was the most amazing day

Enjoy this short wedding highlight video!

 So thankful for my beautiful granddaughter 
and this wonderful young man who adores her.
May they have many years of happiness together

My heart is so full!
