Treats, thanks, and thoughts on Thursday

Chewy Time!!!

What do we have here?  It's a box from

Lightning, go get Mom - we need some help getting this open.

Don't be such a tease, Mom - we KNOW there is something good inside.

You watch Mom, Lightning while I keep my eye on the goodies.

For our latest taste test we received a package of Instinct Raw Boost minis.  They are chicken formula freeze dried raw treats "that your dog will love".  We are SURE we will love them if the Momster would just stop taking pics and open the package.

 This isn't very easy to read, but it says that the treats are all natural raw, with real chicken and turkey and only 2 calories per treat.  The ingredients list is impressive: the treats contain chicken (including ground chicken bone), turkey, turkey liver, turkey heart, pumpkinseeds, apples, carrots, butternut squash, ground flaxseed, broccoli, lettuce, spinach, dried kelp, apple cider vinegar, parsley, honey, salmon oil, olive oil, rosemary extract, blueberries, alfalfa sprouts, persimmons, rosemary, sage, and clove.

As you can see, Phantom thought they were lip-smacking good.  We loved them so much that we think we deserve another round.   We really love all things chicken and turkey.

Can we have some more please?  Mr. Chewy, we love our Instinct Rawboost minis, any chance you can get Instinct to make some bigger one?

Thank you, for letting us participate in your product review program.  We love our treats.

Before we sign off for today, we want to ask for some good thoughts for Phantom.  As you may have noticed in the photo above, he is having a hard time with his legs.  His mobility has been getting worse and worse lately.  Mom had him come in the kitchen to have his treats so we wouldn't bump him in our excitement for the yummy treats.  You can see us watching at the gate.

Just being a good brother and keeping my eye on my buddy-bro Phantom.

Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

Growing old is no fun is it Old Mr Blue Eyes....we sure wish we could turn back the clock for you. This horrible long winter also didn't help. Even Mom's arthritis which has been quiet for a long time has suddenly flared up again. Those treats sound wonderful and with just 2 calories we are sure can more then a few :)

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Those treats sound super... PERSIMMONS??? WE have a Native Persimmon Tree on our hill...

WE are SOOOOOO sorry about the arthur itus stuffs. MOM can SO relate to how hard it is to move about with THAT stuffs. We have our Paws Crossed fur you buddy.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

There's a lot of stuff in that treat! And we bet it must be really yummy. :)

Sending Phantom lots of good thoughts. It's not easy getting older. Whisky's mobility is also pretty poor of late. It's so heartbreaking. :(

Those do look yummy, but you're right, a bigger size would be better!

Lots of good thoughts for Phantom.

How has Ciara been doing?

Phantom, lots of warm, fuzzy thoughts heading your way. Linda, Pepper, and Dublin

Sue said...

The treats sound delicious! We send special loving thoughts to Phantom. Mom worries that we'll bump into Morgan and knock her down. One of her back legs isn't very strong and sometimes she stumbles. It seems she's also lost most of her hearing and her eyesight isn't very good after dark. Mom and Dad stay close to her when she's moving around.

Tweedles always says it perfectly. I send magic bubbles filled with love for our sweet boy, Phantom. I'm glad he got some yummy treats, and I'll be thinking of him (actually, I think of him frequently, even when all is well - he's such a sweetheart. His eyes melt me.).

Phantom is just one of our special boys and he is easy to love. Old Mr. Blue Eyes will have lots of time left, I hope, to do short walks and visit his buddy the Donkey!

Yay for the super treats! They sound absolutely yummy! What a shame that we don't have any Mr. Chewy over here and Mom said it's expensive for them to send it to me. Oh dear Phantom, we all send our love and hugs to you. Take it easy and we hope you enjoyed those delicious treats too.
