Friday Fun in Blogville

In celebration of Fall, Blogville had a blast today with lots of fun events.  We were lucky enough to make it to a few of the activities, thanks to all those peeps who have good photo-editing skills.

We had so much fun at Madi's  Blanket Volleyball.

As you can see, we all joined in the game and had so much fun with all our furiends.

And then there was the Blogville Picnic hosted by Arty and Mabel.  There was so much food to enjoy from Abby and Frankie Furter's catering truck, and Ruby was there with her famous Margarita truck.  Be sure to click on all the links in our post so you can see all the wonderful things to see and do.
After we filled our bellies and quenched our thirst, we relaxed in the barnyard hoping to find something to chase:)

Before we knew it , it was time for the Barnyard Dance.  Click HERE to see all the wonderful dancers enjoying themselves.

Time to move on to the next event.

 Jessie and Casey sponsored an amazing Bouncy House - even reserved Lightning got in on the jumping.

Misty was trying to show Timber what to do, but Mom thinks she may be too good a teacher.  Timber has incredible jumping skills and is now sailing over the gates at home.

Blogville is a great place with pals all over the world.  We even got to jet our way over to France to join Phenny and lots of our friends on a Treasure Hunt.

What a pawesome vehicle of transportation we had to get to the location of the hunt!

We were all very excited to get things underway and see if we would be successful in finding the treasure. You will have to visit Phenny's blog to see if we did.

As you can see, it was one fantastic day in Blogville. Thank you to all those who worked so hard behind the scenes to make this event such a huge success.

Thankful Thursday

Today we are taking part in Brian's Thankful Thursday bloghop.  It is always good to be thankful, even for the little things.

HUH???  What's this?  A new granola concoction???  Cheerios and soft, chewy treats?  Why are you so thankful for this mix, Mom?

Somehow I think this has something to do with ME.

OK, I will 'fess up - getting a couple of Cheerios and an occasional tasty chicken training treat is working wonders on my potty training.  For some reason, though, I only seem to get them when I am OUTSIDE:)  Mom keeps them in her pocket for those miracle moments.

Hey, Mom - we like Cheerios and chicken treats too.  Don't we also deserve a reward for setting a good example for that little scamp?

Not Really Wordless Wednesday - Just Quiet

 Mastering the Siberian Relaxation Pose

 Working on supporting those cabinet doors and using the tail and some leg curling for some privacy:)

Starting to unwind and relax:) 

There you go.  Totally at ease:)

And a little later. 

Let's hope there are no sudden awakenings.

 Just to show that YES, Misty does have an OFF button:)

Finally some peaceful bliss and quiet:)

And a little more work on that head tilt:)

Tasty Tuesday - #ChewyInfluencers

#ChewyInfluencer time!!!

Today we are reviewing the first of two products we selected from We received this item at no cost to us in exchange for an honest and fair review.  Let's get started.

The item up for taste testing today is a 6 oz. bag of Blue Basics Biscuits.  

These  limited-ingredient dog treats are available in two flavors: turkey and potato or salmon and potato.  We love all things fishy so we selected the salmon and potato variety.

Let's get through some of the facts about this product before we do our taste test.

We found this description from the site:

Made from a simple recipe with a limited number of natural ingredients, Blue Basics Biscuits are the perfect treat for dogs with food sensitivities. Oven-baked for crunchy goodness, Basics Biscuits start with real salmon, a high-quality protein not commonly used in dog treats, which makes them ideal for dogs with food sensitivities. In addition, Basics Biscuits contain some of nature’s most healthy and highly digestible ingredients. Plus, all that happy chewing will help freshen his breath!

They sure are sounding pretty healthy and tasty to us so far.  We love fish, we love crunchy, and who doesn't want to have fresh-smelling breath?

Some of the key benefits listed include:

  • Oven-baked biscuits with salmon and potato to help promote healthy skin, gentle digestion and immune system health
  • No chicken/poultry by-product meals, just real ingredients
  • No corn, wheat or soy, so it's great for pups with food allergies
  • No artificial preservatives, colors or flavors, just natural dog treats enhanced with added vitamins
  • High-quality, not commonly used protein is perfect for dogs with food sensitivities
We aren't finding any concerns with these benefits. AND the treats are made in the U.S.A.  We don't have any known food sensitivities, but simple goodness is always best.  Now let's get on with the tasting.

As you can see, the biscuits are a decent size, not too big and not too small. They break easily, making Mom happy.  We much prefer that she not do THAT.

OK, Timber, this is going to be your first review since joining us.  You need to pose nicely and look at Mom. Trust us, there are great benefits to cooperation.

We don't have any photos of the actual eating because Mom can't seem to manage three dogs, the flashy beast, and some feeding all at the same time. But let us all tell you the treats were very good. The salmon taste really hit the spot. Even Timber gobbled his up very quickly.  We didn't let him know that we each got a WHOLE one while he only got a half:)  Mom doesn't want to overload his tummy with too many different things too soon.

Let's do it again, Mom - give Timber a bit more practice with this review thing.

Watch ME, Timber - the head tilt works wonders - you should really try it.

How's this for a good one, Misty and Lightning?  I even got a smile in there for those yummy treats. I will have to work on the head tilt:)  And I see what you mean about the great benefits of cooperation.

We highly recommend these Blue Basics Biscuits.  You can find them HERE on  They are on sale right now, and even the regular price is pretty good.  We hope we can get Mom to let us try the turkey and potato ones too.  Thank you, Ms. Natalie and for letting us be your #ChewyInfluencers.

Monday Monday - Blue Monday

Do I look blue?

It is raining outside so I can't play outside for very long:(  And even worse, Mom says I may be a very sweet pup who loves everyone, furry and human, but I have a lot to learn when it comes to pottying outside:(

Friday Flicks

Hope you will enjoy some fun time with Timber and his siblings.

Notice how Misty tries to engage Timber in the game of tug AND how he is the bully here:)  She is just so good with him  She brings him all the toys to play with her, and he runs and takes them to his crate.  A bit of role reversal.

Lightning is working more and more every day to get involved in the play.  He seems quite content to take his time:)

We want to send our deepest sympathies to Sharon, Raz, and Allie of Friends Furever on the very sad passing of her husband and their Cat Daddy Bill.  Our hearts go out to all of you.  You are in our thoughts and prayers.
