Nature Friday with More Snow!

In typical Idaho fashion 
we got up this morning to snow

It is still snowing as we write this post
with bigger flakes

We apologize for our sporadic posting and commenting lately. There has been a lot going on around here
This last week was rough for me and Hazel
Last weekend Hazel got really bad diarrhea. Poor baby was up and down all Saturday night. Mom got some medicine from our dogtor. Just as Hazel was starting to feel better I got the diarrhea - ugh. Hasn't been much good sleep at the PugRanch. I am still on the mend so we are missing an obedience trial today.

Mom got new glasses yesterday.
Because her right eye has been looking through the wrong prescription after her surgery, it will take a bit for her eye to adjust to the new lense.  Unfortunately what she is struggling the most with is reading, including on the computer. 
So please bear with us!

Supervising the Dish Guy

Saturday a guy came to our house to switch our TV 
from Direct TV to Dish Network

I kept a close eye on him

and made sure he knew what we wanted

I know Dish Guy appreciated my help

He accepted all my barking orders with grace

Nature Friday

After several beautiful sunny days

we woke up this morning to rain and dreary skies

We did have a nice visitor in the yard

Mr. Pheasant was checking the lawn for snacks

He did not stay long, 
flew over the fence and across the road into the sage brush

Weatherman says we may have snow by Sunday

We sure hope not!

This is the

#ChewyInfluencer March Review

For our Chewy review this month
we elected to try

Purina Beyond Grain-Free Alaskan Cod Recipe Canned Dog Food

Your dog deserves the best, so look beyond average dog food and serve Purina Beyond Alaskan Cod canned dog food. This scrumptious seafood recipe features regionally sourced Alaskan cod as the first ingredient, sourced directly from a MSC-certified sustainable fishery. It's the high-quality protein your best friend deserves, paired with vitamins and minerals for a wholesome, well-rounded meal that packs a nutritious punch. And it delivers all those benefits without adding fillers like by-product meal, corn, wheat, soy, grains or gluten! In fact, there are only four primary ingredients in this smooth, savory pate. That means your furball will enjoy a tasty meal that brings everything she needs, and absolutely nothing she doesn't.

Mom loves the easy open pop tab lid!

I love that there are only 4 main ingredients 
Cod, Chicken, Liver, Fish Broth
along with vitamins and minerals

It has a pate texture

And my reaction?

Get ready!

It is a food I would jump up for!!!!

We would like to thank our friends at
especially Miss Natalie and Miss Kristen 
for giving us the opportunity to be a part of the Influencer program and for letting us test so many new products.

We love Chewy!

disclaimer: as part of the #ChewyInfluencer program we were provided this dog food free of charge in exchange for our honest review

Fun at the Health Fair!

Every year Idaho State University holds a health fair

Our training director has a table there.
 Mom & I went to help let people know about 
the benefits of having a well trained dog

There were a lot of people there!
This was our second year helping 
and I was much more relaxed than last year

In fact I really enjoyed all the attention, 
everybody wants to meet the pug!
If there was a lull in the crowd I would start softly barking
"Hey peeps! Come meet me!"

I showed off my puzzle skills and some of my tricks

This is my friend Oliver 

These children enjoyed meeting him

Eleven different dogs came throughout the day
This is my friend Rez

Now for the big question

Some of you did recognize this TV celebrity.

For the rest of you 
here are a few more clues

If you watch American Ninja Warrior
you may recognize 

Lance Pekus

Also known as the Cowboy Ninja

Lance is from Salmon, Idaho 
and will soon be competing on his eighth season of 
American Ninja Warrior

It was really fun to meet him
(don't worry Arty, he doesn't hold a candle to you!)

Nature Friday Sunshine!!

It was a little chilly this morning (23 degrees) 
but after several days of gray, cloudy, snowy, rainy weather

We have Clear Blue skies!!!

Doesn't that look gorgeous!

Of course there is still snow on the mountains
(and a little in our yard)

But it sure raises our spirits to see the sun 

This is a blog hop!
