Wondering Why Wednesday?


Are you wondering why I look like I am in jail?



Do you think I did something wrong - surely you wouldn't think that about ME!!!




Nope, NOT in jail!  Nope, did NOTHING  wrong (yet)!  I just find this to be a great vantage point for seeing who comes from upstairs, the kitchen, the family room, even the powder room - 
 AND I am positioned directly under a very nice cooling air vent:)  Pretty smart Pup, eh?

Tasty Tuesday with Chewy.com


It's Tasty Influencer for Chewy.com time again!!!



We are here today to tell you about another wonderful product we were able to try courtesy of Chewy.com at no cost to us.  So here is our honest and fair review in exchange for the kindness from Chewy.com.


That nice lady Ms. Sydney is always so generous in sharing the goodness for each month. We received a full 12 pack of some yummy canned food - Whole Earth Farms Chicken & Turkey Recipe.  We opted to try the chicken and turkey flavor, but there are other options available HERE.





This product is grain-free AND made in the U.S.A.  From the Chewy.com website, we learned that pet parents will take great pride in feeding their dogs Whole Earth Farms, a wholesome line of naturally nutritious dog food that offers all the goodness from the earth at a good value. All Whole Earth Farms kibble and canned recipes are made in the USA with high quality, natural ingredients that deliver complete and balanced nutrition. Now with more high quality protein, Whole Earth Farms is the good choice for pet parents interested in exploring natural pet food.

Among the key benefits:

  • Carrageenan & Grain-free recipe
  • Low glycemic
  • No artificial preservatives, flavors or colors
  • No corn, wheat or soy
  • No ingredients from China
  • Made in the USA!
(We didn't know what carrageenan was until we saw that this product is carrageenan free.  If you want to learn more about carrageenan, you can read a very good article HERE.)  



Although we usually like canned food in general, we prefer the homestyle ground form over the stew or chunky varieties - just look at the yummy smoothness of this product.  Are you wondering what is in it?  It is full of yummy chicken, chicken broth, turkey, chicken liver, peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, dried egg product, blueberries and a whole bunch of other good things for you.


We only get a small amount of canned food added as a topper to our regular kibble and veggies, but we do so enjoy the extra yumminess.




We don't really enjoy that "Wait" command, but we know we must wait before we can enjoy.



Ciara has her eye on the prize. 



And there she goes!!!

You can read many outstanding reviews about the Whole Earth Farms grain-free canned foods on the Chewy.com website.  As for what we think - it is very tasty and yummy.  We cleaned our bowls so there wasn't the tiniest bit left.  Eight paws up from Ciara and Lightning.


Now, Mom, about that little extra you gave us for dinner - can we please get a double dose next time?  It is REALLY good.

Thanks to Chewy.com for allowing us to do another review of another great product.  If you would like to purchase some for your pet, be sure to check it out at Chewy.com.

Sitting Pretty for a Medal


Yesterday there was another big event in the 2016 Blogville Pawlympics.



It was the "Sitting Pretty" event sponsored by Dory's Backyard - Dory, Arty, Jakey, and Bilbo.  Did you see all the amazing entries yesterday HERE?  WHAT, did you not see us there?  Well, there was a pair of Secret Agent Sibes who do have a familial connection to us, BUT that wasn't us AND we aren't going to reveal their identity.  We think they like that special role they have.  We were there too, but we "appeared" as the Invisible Man and Invisible Woman:)  You never know what tricks us Sibes have up our paws:)



Since Dory, Jakey, Arty, and Bilbo awarded us one of those precious Gold Medals, today we thought we would "reveal" our entry.  If you go HERE today, you will see that we decided to become visible so we could accept our award.




And yes, Ruby, we used our special Sibe Powers to make you invisible too so the three of us could enjoy all those margaritas together:)

Thanks to Dory, Arty, Jakey, Bilbo and their sweet Mom for hosting this fantastic opportunity.  It takes a lot of time and effort to put together such a great event.

Tasty Tuesday from July on Thursday in August





How's that for an interesting title!!!  We had a second product to review for Chewy.com in July, but with all of my "happenings" last month, we didn't get to it.  Unfortunately I had some more of those evil happenings overnight, totally discouraging the Momster.  At least we had prepared some of the photos for our review earlier this week.

At no cost to us, we received a 4 oz. package of Natural Balance L.I.T. Immunity Support Jerky in the salmon formula from our favorite Chewy.com lady, Ms. Sydney, in exchange for a fair and honest review.


We are huge fans of jerky, and salmon is one of our favorite fish tastes.  And since this is a L.I.T. product, it has limited ingredients - that is always a plus.

From the Chewy.com website:

Description:

Helps support a healthy immune system!  Made with more than 80% of the high quality protein dogs love, Natural Balance L.I.T. Limited Ingredient Treats Immunity Support Jerky is formulated with antioxidant vitamins C and E to help support a healthy immune system.  Your dog not only gets an amazingly tasty jerky treat, but you'll be happy knowing that you're helping to keep your dog healthy at the same time.
Key Benefits
  • Grain-free, limited ingredient treat
  • Made with salmon
  • No corn or wheat
  • No artificial flavors or colors
  • With antioxidant vitamins C & E
  • Great for puppies and adults
  • Made in the USA!

The limited ingredients include:  Salmon, Dried Potatoes, Sucrose, Vegetable Glycerin, Salt, Guar Gum, Sorbic Acid (Preservative), L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (Source of Vitamin C), Vitamin E Supplement, Citric Acid (Preservative), Mixed Tocopherols (Preservative), Rosemary Extract.

Since the treats include some rosemary, Ciara is only going to be allowed to have a tiny taste once in a while, because some studies have shown that rosemary can be a seizure trigger.  We have not noticed this in the past with other products she has had, but it is always best to be cautious.

We are very much ready to receive our treats.  See how we can sit so nicely together.


Each strip of treats in the bag is a nice size.  We think we should each get a whole one, don't you agree?  But of course, the Momster says they are a treat with a high value for training purposes and rewards so she says we can only get a small piece.  Wouldn't you know that this treat is so very easy to break into smaller pieces!!!  We see that as a negative, but Mom says it is a great plus.



Yeah, yeah, yeah, sit and WAIT!!!  Lightning isn't taking his eye off his treat while Ciara works the camera!!!



OKAY, we waited, can we please eat now?



A little late for the Pawlympics Tongue Curling event, but Ciara's tongue tells the story of how she enjoyed her treat!!!



If you are a jerky lover like we are, we just KNOW you will love these Natural Balance treats.  They also come in other formulas besides the salmon, like duck and chicken.  You can find them at Chewy.com - go tell your humans it is time to place an order for these and so many of the wonderful products you can find at Chewy.com with good prices and awesome shipping service.  Thank you, Sydney and Chewy.com for another opportunity to taste test and review a great product.

Not so Wordless Wednesday



We were so busy sunpuddle napping and synchronizing our naps that we forgot to post about our pawticipation in the Sundpuddle competition yesterday sponsored by our dear kitty pal Madi and her Mom.




We were both enjoying our sleep time so much that we slept right through the awards.  




But we are very grateful to Madi and her Mom for awarding us this special medal AND even more importantly for sponsoring such a fun event in the 2016 Pawlympics!!!
