Thanks on Thursday TO . . .

The Wonderful, Fantastic, Fabulous, Terrific Sydney from!!!!!

The day after we received our last taste testing box from Chewy, Mom got an email from that nice lady Sydney telling her that Chewy just realized that the selection we had made, Kanoodles, was not a U.S.A. made product.  Sydney knows that Mom doesn't like to take any chances with treats that come from certain countries.  Now those Kanoodles might be just fine, but she said we couldn't have them.

SO Ms. Sydney decided that The OP Pack needed to have something so she sent us some surprises in another box.

We found one of our favorite treats in the box - a bag of Orijen Black Angus Beef Treats. We have had these before and even did a review about them.  Mom has also purchased them for us, but we were delighted to have a new bag to replenish our supply.

You may not be able to read this blurry shot, but they have wonderful ingredients:  Angus beef liver, boneless Angus beef, and Angus beef tripe - who could ask for a better mix!!! They come from pure and natural Angus beef raised free-range on Alberta's vast prairie ranches.   They are a very nice size for both big and small dogs - we just think Mom needs to give us more than one at a time.

Also in the box were these two prehistoric creatures from Nylabone.  Nylabone Dura-Chew Dental Chews.  Here is what we found on about them:

Nylabone DuraChew Dental Chew Dino Dog Toy, Large Chew Toy

If there's one thing brave pups wish they still had a chance to chase, it's a dinosaur! The Nylabone DuraChew Dental Chew Dino Dog Toy is one tough toy that's able to stand up to tons of chewing. It has raised, rounded nubs that help clean teeth and the clean scent freshens breath. Best of all… Dino Dog Toys don't bite back!
Key Benefits
  • Made for dogs up to 50 lbs
  • Chew will be shipped in Brontosaurus, Stegosaurus or T-Rex shape (chosen at random)
  • Fun shape keeps pets entertained
  • Freshens breath
  • Vet-recommended for clean teeth and gums
  • Made in USA

We are all in favor of anything that will help keep our teeth clean and our breath smelling good.

Here is a closer view of the dinosaurs:

Aren't they just the cutest?  We need to come up with some good names for them.

Here is a short video of Ciara and Lightning enjoying their chews with a brief cameo of Phantom at the end.  Mom was really surprised at how much we enjoyed those dinosaurs as we don't usually stick with chews for very long unless we can devour them:)

My teeth are pretty old and I really don't like to chew things that are really hard, but I wouldn't mind a few of those beef treats, Mom.

Blurry view, but it was really good.

Yep, the second one was just as good.

How about one more just so I can be sure the whole bag is going to measure up to my taste approval?

Sure, Mom, I can give you a nice pose for one or two of those treats.

And where is Mr. Lightning???

We have new neighbors moving in today (a secret YAY from Mom), and he is just too busy right now checking out those men in black with all the scary boxes.

No, I was not too busy to come in and get my share of the beef goodies.

And just for good measure, we are all ready for a triple treat:)

Many, many, many thanks to Sydney and for our surprise package - CHEWY is THE BEST!!!

Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

Well apparently our mom does not read the back of the package very well cos that is what she gave me to chew on last night, I am going to have to have a few words with her when she gets home from work.

Oh Phantom, we are so glad that you got some treats. Those chewy dinosaurs look like so much fun. Our old Ande doesn't like chewing either Phantom so don't feel bad. You all take care.

That was a nice surprise. We love when Chewy boxes come to the door.

We love Chewy and Mom is careful about getting treats made in the USA also. I am glad you got a yummy replacement and loved the video.

HOW SWEET!!!! OMD, Sydney is just the sweetest!!! Yuppers, I usually don't like hard chews either, butt I really like the Nylabones! Ma doesn't know why either (must be the flavoring they infuse in them or something), butts I gets mine out and chew it regularly! Oh, butts those treaties look FABulous too!!!!! OMD, I thinks I'm droolin' over heres...
Lightning, do you need some backup dude?

Those Orijen treats are very popular, aren't they? We tried them, and both pups adored them.

I think that I need to get those dental chews. Our dogs might love them.

I love seeing Phantom's sweet eyes! I'm glad he loved his treats!

Millie and Walter said...

You all made out like bandits! We love all things nylabone and those beef treats sound delish.

Rebekah Ward said...

Have I mentioned how much I love Phantom?

I'm giving Chooey and the little ones Pedigree dental chews. We don't have that many options where we live so Pedigree we all have to do for now.

Charliedownunder said...

Mitch and Molly said...

We love our dino dental chew too! We couldn't agree more - Chewy is the BESTEST!

Those dinosaur chews are sooo cute! What a great idea. You have got the right idea Phantom, there might be one of those beef chews that just doesn't pass quality control :)
