Monday Memories for the Angel Birthday Boy



Nineteen years ago today Mr. Blue Eyes made his way into the world.  Angel Phantom graced us with 16 1/2 years of his sweetness and gentle nature.


Please join for a look at some of our photo memories from the past.


Our first two Siberian Huskies - Phantom and Dakota.



Let's go - who has the keys?



He knew Dad was always good to share a taste of that apple pie.



Waiting patiently for the twins C and J to drop a few crumbs.



Enjoying a nice day with Princess K.



Taking time to smell the roses:)



Oh, he did have a very fluffy tail!!!





Mom's special honeybun.




Let's woo up a duet, Thunder Dunder. 



 Baby Lightning, Angel Ciara, Angel Thunder, and Angel Phantom - those were some wonderful days.



More sweet times with little K.



Awww, how cute is that!!!



The Happy Pack of Four






Happy Birthday, Angel Phantom.
We miss you and love you forever.

Weekend Woos



What's going on here, Lightning and Timber?  Why is Misty in the crate?  Did you two chase her in there? 



Why are you blaming us, Mom?  Timber and I did no such thing.



Look at her, Mom - SHE is the guilty one.



She went in there all by herself just so she could have MY antler chew!!!  Lightning and I are totally innocent.

Mea culpa, boys. But if you two look over in the corner, you would see that there are several more antler chews where that one came from:)  Maybe we should all take a minute and explain to our readers why we have been MIA this week and why it may happen again in the coming days.


OK. Well, dear readers, it has been a difficult week here for our family.  We are all fine, Mom and Dad too. But a member of our immediate family got some tough medical news this week.  Things are still in the testing and planning stages, but Mom says life is going to be challenging for the family for a while over the next few months.  She would like to share more but will be waiting a while longer until the family decides that would be OK.  We are going to try to keep posting and commenting as much as we can, but please understand if we are not always around.  Any extra POTP and prayers that you might have would be greatly appreciated.  Mom and Dad are very sad, but we promise to do our best to keep their spirits up.

Tasty Tuesday #ChewyInfluencer

Time for another Chewy.com review.  Some of you have already had the pleasure of enjoying the product we have for our readers to learn about today.  But we think everyone will still enjoy seeing what we think about this item that we received from Chewy.com at no cost in exchange for our fair and honest opinion.


Here we have a 12 pack of Blue Wilderness Trail Trays.


We have duck grills and chicken grills - we love both duck and chicken.


From the Chewy.com website, we learned about the product and its key benefits. 

Description:

Take a walk on the deliciously wild side with the Blue Buffalo Wilderness Trail Trays Variety Pack with Duck & Chicken Formula Grain-Free Dog Food Trays. Inspired by the wolf spirit that lives in every dog, these recipes offer wholesome nutrition in irresistible flavor choices. They’re made with only the finest, natural ingredients like real, protein-rich duck or chicken—and equally important is what’s not in it. This food leaves out all the stuff that isn’t good or nutritious for your dog, because that’s just how nature intended it. And in an easy-to-serve tray form, mealtimes have never been better.

Key Benefits:



  • Tasty and natural grain-free variety pack is packed with protein and comes in easy-to-serve trays.
  • Real, deboned duck or chicken is the first ingredient with added vitamins and minerals.
  • Inspired by the diet of wolves, who are true omnivores with legendary endurance.
  • Made in the USA with only real ingredients and never any chicken or poultry by-product meals.
  • Great for allergies with no grains, corn, wheat or soy or artificial preservatives, colors or flavors.
And the ingredients:

We let Mom decide which flavor we would try first.  She chose the chicken and said we could have the duck tomorrow night.




The chicken trail tray food has a very soft, almost pate-like consistency.  Mom said she liked that she could easily divide the "pie" into thirds so we could each get some as a topping for our dinner.



We would all rather have a WHOLE tray for each of us, but we decided that Mom knows best.  Misty and Timber think that Mom needs to check her measuring skills because it looks like Lightning's stainless steel bowl got a bigger chunk that they did.

We let Mom video us as we were eating. You will see that she mixed in some green beans, some pumpkin, and our kibble along with our trail tray portion.  We hope you enjoy our video.  At the beginning you can hear how impatient Lightning is when it is dinner time. You will also see that Timber still eats in his crate, but he is probably going to get to eat with Lightning and Misty soon.  Lastly you will hear the gong of the old clock verifying that Mom did a good job of getting our dinner served by 5:00 p.m., per our preference:)



As you can see, we all LOVED that extra topping in our dinner bowls.



In fact, Misty loved it so much that she was waiting outside Timber's crate to clean up whatever he might leave in his bowl.



Sorry, Misty, Timber cleaned his bowl completely!!!



Thank you, Chewy.com and Ms. Natalie, for giving us the opportunity to serve as Chewy Influencers once again.  We like the trail trays a LOT.  Mom says they would be a little more expensive than the canned food she adds to our dinner, but she would be sure to get some for a special treat.  They would be great for smaller dogs who don't require as much food as we do, and they would also be nice for times when the family goes traveling and wants an easy meal to prepare for us.  Just zip off the lid and serve!!!  Check them out on the Chewy.com site right HERE.

Monday Mischief with Mom and Lightning


Today while Misty and Timber were outside running wild playing together,  I followed Mom around to be sure she was doing a tip top job dusting all the furniture.  


I know you want to get a nice photo op with me posing in front of this CURIOus piece of furniture, but I just can't take my eyes off what I see inside.



I spy with my blue and brown eyes something white and furry that looks a lot like me.  Did you get me an early Christmas present, Mom - a twin white Sibe? 



Don't you see it in there?
Don't you see those perky pink-lined ears on the right?



Oh wait, now you have really spoiled me, Mom - I see TWO white Sibes in there. 



Look, that one even has a pink nose just like mine! 



Mom, I think they need some help getting out of that magic box.  What should we do?


I think I will just sit here and wait for them to crawl out.



Why are you laughing at me, Mom?  What is SO funny???

Serene Sunday Selfie (Ussie)






Mom, we are sure you are going to reward us with extra treats today since we are SO missing all that extra food Dad sneaks us when you aren't looking our Dad who is visiting family in Texas.  Especially since we are giving you a great pose AND we are taking good care of you in Dad's absence.




How about some more?
We could do this all day for those tasty treats:)


Happy Serene Sunday to all.
