(Sort of but not really) Wordless Happy Pirates (Wednes)Day




And now we are off to find us some yummy pirate booty!!!

Happy Pirates Day!!!

Many thanks to Ann of Zoolatry for creating all of our images for today.  Mom got off easy this time; maybe we need to make her walk the plank - or else pay a high ransom with lots and lots of treats:)

Something's Fishy - #ChewyInfluencer

It's another Tasty Tuesday with As Chewy Influencers, we are here to tell you about a product that we received from at no cost to us in exchange for a fair and honest review.  Let's get on with our review so we can get to the tasting!

When our box arrived last week, we knew "something fishy" was going on inside that box.  We wondered what it could be.  Finally the Momster opened the box and here is what we found:

A 3 ounce package of Grain Free Wishes Fish Filets from The Honest Kitchen.  Let's get that bag open, Mom.

Now that's our kind of treat - BIG!!!

Sigh, the light and crispy filets are pretty easy for the Momster to "snap" into smaller pieces - guess that is way the package describes the filets as "light and crispy snaps".  We would much prefer to get a whole filet EACH, but we won't complain as long as Mom is generous and lets us have more than one smaller piece.

Before we do our taste test, let's learn some more about this product from


The Honest Kitchen Wishes Dehydrated White Fish Filets Dog & Cat Treats make anytime a reason for snack time! Light, crispy, and easy to snap into pieces, you can use them whole or break off morsels for smaller mouths. Dogs and cats both love the taste, so they’re an easy solution for multi-pet homes. And with a single ingredient of wild-caught fish, they’re loaded with protein and good-for-them omega-3 fatty acids. Finally, dogs and cats have something to agree on—so everyone’s wish has been granted!


  • Dehydrated treats for cats and dogs are the perfect snack for multi-pet households.
  • Made with just a single, tasty ingredient of wild-caught white fish
  • Fish is an excellent treat for dogs who have sensitivities to more common protein sources.
  • High in protein and low in calories, the lightweight treat is great to bring anywhere, and easily snaps into smaller pieces.
  • Made in the USA with human-grade quality, using a farm to bowl philosophy.
Lots of good information in there - we hope you take the time to read them.  Let's take a look at the INGREDIENTS:  Dehydrated White Fish  - and that's ALL!!!  

We all love fish, fish of any kind.  So these treats should be just perfect for us.  Let's get to that taste test!!!

BOL - did you see that sneaky Timber as he stole Misty's piece, not once, but TWO times!!!  He is quick, isn't he?  And then he plays the cute little pup with his tail all a-wagging:) We can't really blame him because the filets are absolutely delicious.

In summary, we have to say that we are delighted with our latest catch from  12 paws up for sure!!! Mom thinks the product is very healthy for us and that is what is important to her. Her only negative is that they do have a fishy smell when the bag is open.  But she says we are worth it since we like them so much.  Thanks to Ms. Natalie and Ms. Kristin from the Chewy Influencer Team for letting us try these Honest Kitchen Wishes Fish Filets.

Farewell to Madi

Madi has been one of our wonderful kitty friends for a long time now. We were so sad to learn that time caught up with her and she bid "farewell for now" to her family and friends.

Madi served Blogville well as its Mayoress, and she helped to facilitate so many fun events.  She and her Mom often helped us join in the fun by creating some great action photos for our Mom.

She loved a good sunpuddle.  And the diva in her made sure that her life was filled with all the best of everything.  She had her Mom and Dad wrapped around her little paws, but they did it all with abundant love in their hearts.  

Madi and her Mom were always so good about remembering the special events happening in her friends' lives by sending a special "Madi" card.  We were the recipients of many and will cherish them forever.

Madi wore her diva crown well.  Yes, she WAS a Diva.  She had royalty in her blood.  But above all else, she was our very good friend.  We are going to miss her a lot.  But we have to remember Madi will forever and always be in our hearts

Please stop by her blog HERE and leave some comforting words for her family.

Sunday Group Ussie


The heat is back on in OP, so we are all just vegging out inside today.  Mom and Dad are off to see Mamma Mia at a local dinner theater tonight with our human sister and family.  Mom LOVES Mamma Mia; we hope the people sitting near her will appreciate her singalong:)

Finis on Friday

Amazingly the carpet installation went very smoothly.  A crew of SIX guys worked all day yesterday and finished around 8:30 last night.  That would be removing all the old carpeting and padding from four bedrooms, a sitting area off the master bedroom, a huge master bedroom closet, a cedar closet, three smaller bedroom closets, AND the BIG family room and sunroom.  There will also be a new runner that matches the new carpet to run the length of the family room along our route from the kitchen to the deck - it helps save on the soil of the main carpet, but it won't be ready for another week or so.  The whole job was supposed to be a two day project, but Ronnie and his crew were just superb!!!

Yes, it is another light colored carpet, but it is actually darker than the old one, picking up more sand and grey tones rather than the ivory and beige of the old one.  The photo doesn't do the color justice, but trust us, it feels really nice under our paws and tushies:) We are so happy to be able to come back into the family room with Mom and Dad as we were confined to the kitchen all day yesterday.

Here is another view for you to see, plus it gives you a chance to see us too. 

And another one with some photobombing:)

The bedrooms are all done too, but we don't get to go up there:(  Mom still has a few more things to do to get all the stuff back into the closets and all the breakables back in place in the bedrooms.  We are pretty sure you don't really want to see those rooms anyway since we would not be allowed to be in those photos - BOL.

Now, Mom, how about some treats as rewards for our good posing and for our excellent behavior yesterday through all the chaos?

Pee Ess - we are behind on blogs, but we will try to catch up over the weekend.

A Few Words Wednesday

Whoa, Mom - it's bright out here!!!

We wanted to show you our late blooming crepe myrtle shrubs, but we forgot our shades!  But we did remember our smiles:)

We want to send lots of sibe vibes and Mom prayers to all our pals in the path of Hurricane Florence.  We aren't sure where everyone lives, but for sure we know that Madi and her whole family could be impacted.  We wish everyone would pay attention to the severe warnings that are being given, and go wherever they need to so they can be safe.  All the material things can be replaced; your lives cannot.  And do take care to provide for your pets too - they need protection also.

Our house is going to be a bit topsy-turvy for a few days, and it won't be from any hurricanes.  Most of the first and second floors of our home will be getting new carpets.  Mom has been super busy cleaning out and now clearing out all the closets, moving all the breakables, and just generally going nuts.  The carpet guys will have to deal with four bedrooms, Dad's office, all the closets upstairs, the upper hallway, and the big family room on the first floor - lots of furniture that Mom has no idea where they are going to put it.  We are going to try to keep up with blogging, but if we go missing, no worries.
