#ChewyInfluencer Whimzee Review

February is Dental Health month 
so I was very excited when our friends at Chewy sent us 
WHIMZEES Brushzees Dental Dog Treats

  • Whimzees are a long-lasting treat designed to keep your pup busy chewing!
  • Effective in helping to remove plaque, tartar and bad breath while also satisfying that natural urge to chew
  • Limited ingredient chews are gluten-free, grain-free, GMO-free and have no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
  • Uniquely-shaped chews are crafted with grooves to help clean the smaller spaces between dogs’ teeth, and ridges to help ensure proper blood flow through the gums.
  • Ingredients - Potato Starch, Glycerin, Powdered Cellulose, Lecithin, Dried Yeast, Malt Extract, Sweet Lupin Meal, Alfalfa Extract, Paprika Extract.

Whimzee's come in different sizes and shapes, 
I chose the medium brushzees
There are also alligators, stiks and hedgehogs

When I had my annual check up yesterday,
 the dogtor said my teeth look great.
I owe that in part to the fact I love Whimzee's

We wanted to show you how excited I get 
when Mom let's me have a Whimzee 
but I wasn't sure why Dad was filming
(and I had just woke up from a nap)  
 Don't worry, you will see 
that I love chewing my Whimzee Brushzee!

disclaimer: as a #ChewyInfluencer we were sent a box of Whimzee's to chew free of charge in exchange for our honest review

Nature Friday and Mom Update

It's Friday!!!

First we want to thank everyone for the POTP and well wishes for Mom
The surgery was quick and went well
She had her post op appointment yesterday and all looked good. 
We make sure she does her eye drops 4 times a day. 
 It will take a few days for the cloudiness to clear as her eye heals. 

One evening early this week 

we noticed some interesting clouds

Looking more to the left

a bit closer up

Mother Nature sure gives us some beautiful views 

We are joining

We got lots of snow last Sunday.
 Then lots of wind and rain
making everything ugly and mucky looking.

So we are looking forward to spring

New Chapter of LIfe begins for Granddaughter

This morning our Air Force granddaughter and her husband 
embarked on their next big adventure

Headed to Germany, 
they will be stationed there for the next four years

Cierra and Jacob

We could not be more proud of this young couple

Their commitment to each other, 
desire to experience the world 
and service to our country is inspiring. 

While it will be hard to have them so far away,
we are excited for them

Nightime Gotta Pee Alarm

Mom says that Hazel was the easiest to potty train 
out of all the pugs that have lived at the PugRanch.
From the time she was a puppy she only had a couple of accidents in the house - until recently.
The one downside of Hazel taking Lasix is 
she pees more and when she has to go - she has to go!
And that includes 1 or 2 times during the night.
Most of the time either Mom or Dad will get up and let Hazel out when she gets off the bed. But Hazel woofs very softly and one night neither of them woke up. 
Poor Hazel couldn't wait and peed on the carpet. 

Mom and Dad knew that was embarrassing for Hazel so they put their heads together and came up with a solution.

Do you see the weird box 
mounted at the bottom of our bed ramp?

It is a sensor that detects movement. 

See the box behind Mom's alarm clock?
Now when Hazel goes down the ramp, 
the sensor sends a signal and an alarm goes off, 
alerting Mom & Dad that some puggy needs to go out

They found an alarm that had a "low" volume setting 
They hear it but it doesn't "jar" them awake. 

Hazel says she sure is lucky 
to have a Mom & Dad that love her so much
