Review Day

We are here today to tell you about the wonderful products we received from this month.

The very nice Sydney told us last Wednesday that she was going to try to get our shipment out before she left for a long weekend.  WELL, our box arrived on Saturday!!!!  How is THAT for service - that's the CHEWY way!

We received a new brush.  It is a "dual" brush made by Furminator.  One side is a pin brush that is great for our double coated furs.  The other side is a bristle brush.  The bristles don't do a lot for our thick coats, but they sure do feel nice when we want to have just a gentle massage.  

The pin brush side - yes, you can see it has already been put to use.

The bristle brush side - also given a test run on our furs.

Ciara is in full "blow" mode of her winter coat.  This pile of fur came from about five minutes worth of brushing with the pin side.

Hmmmm,  I, Ciara, do remember that my brother Thunder Dunder once had a big plan for what he could do with all of his furs:)  Some of you may remember how that all worked out!!!  You can read about the final result if you just click HERE!!!  

Lightning isn't quite ready to blow his coat, but he is more than ready to try the other item that was in our Chewy box.

Also in the box was a bag of Merrick Power Bites.  They are grain free and gluten free and are made from real beef.  

Mom put some of the star-shaped treats in a bowl with one of Ciara's anti-seizure tablets to show you how tiny they are.  Their size makes them great for rewards during training, but Mom was really nice and let us have several of them at one time.  They are soft and chewy and they smell REALLY yummy.  There is no corn, wheat, or soy in them.  They are safely made in the U.S.A..  We have to tell you that they have a super taste!!!  Too bad they didn't arrive on time for Phantom to taste as Mom thinks they would have been the perfect tidbit to mix in his dinner bowl to entice him to eat more.  We know he would have loved them too.  Too bad Chewy can't make deliveries across the Rainbow Bridge - we KNOW they would if they could.

No worries about our carpet - the blue vacula will be on duty soon. 

Thank you. Chewy and Ms. Sydney - we give these two products all 8 paws UP!!!

Woos - Lightning and Ciara

One last thing, and a very important one!!!  

Happy, happy birthday to our sweet friend Marg, who does amazing things for so many furries!!!

We just reviewed that FURminator brush today, too! I thought the pin side felt very nice, but even the pins can't get through our thick haunches. I thought it was great other than that. Our treats were from Nutro, and wow, are they good! You two might want to give them a try!
We have an Oreck, too. Maggie loves it. She's almost as much of a vacuum freak as Mom.
PS: Your furs look so beautiful!!!

That sure looks like a great brush. Ande needs a good brushing right after a good hair cut. It sure did a great great job on Ciara and Lightning.
Thanks a bunch for the nice Birthday wishes. You all have a great day.

We got a brush just like yours this month too. We aren't so sure about trying it but there was something else in the box that does have our interest.

OMD we thought for a minute you had de-stuffed a stuffy. Send Chewy over here we so could do with them.
Have a tremendous Thursday.

Glad there were treats....if you had to have the brush. Actually, SHE says our brush is about dead. Hope we don't have those here.

We remember what Thunder was going to do with all that fur! But we don't think Lightning remembers...bwahaahaa!

Mark Muller said...

the shape of your brush looks interesting, is there any difference to the common round or oval shape? and that little stars look so tasty... do you think when I open my mouth tonight while watching the stars one of this stars will fall from heaven and lands in my mouth?

Wow, isn't it EXHAUSTING carrying all that fur around??

Hunter got the same brush but I haven't tried it out on him yet. He also got treats that look just the same as yours, but aren't. We'll post about them on Monday.
Have a peaceful weekend.

We seem to recall Thunder's furs had something to do with Lightening.

Those treats sure sound tasty.
