Timber's Thankful Thursday

Let's hop along with Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!!!





Mom said she thought it would be a good idea for me to think about what I am thankful for in my life.  I told her that was EASY!!!



I am thankful for my sweet sister Misty who lets me chew on her, steal her toys, run zoomies together, and just hang with me.




I am also very grateful for my BIG brother Lightning who lets me lie on his paws while he is trying to nap, who teaches me all sorts of good (and mischievous) things, who lets me share his place on the a/c vent, and who does his best to keep me out of trouble.





Who wouldn't be thankful for such a wonderful pack!!!

What are you thankful for today and every day?

Tuesday Talk - #ChewyInfluencer

It is always fun to get an unexpected package in the mail.  A few days ago Chewy.com sent us a surprise package so that we could try a special product that would be good for our health.

Dr. Lyon's line of products has introduced three new products, one of which we received.  We have Dr. Lyon's Liver Supplements. There are also two other supplements, one for calming and one for healthy skin and coat.

We decided that we would let Lightning be the one who gets to try the liver supplements.  Mom thinks he would also be a great candidate for Dr. Lyons Calming Aid supplements too, and she will probably order some of them too.  But for now let's talk about the liver supplements.




 As we all know, for both humans and canines, the liver is a vitally important organ in the body. The liver's main job is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body. The liver also detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs. As it does so, the liver secretes bile that ends up back in the intestines. The liver also makes proteins important for blood clotting and other functions.  So it is very important to keep one's liver healthy.

From the Chewy.com website, we found this information about the Dr. Lyon's supplements:

Description

Help support your dog’s liver health with Dr. Lyon’s Liver Support Soft Chews Dog Supplement. Guided by science and inspired by nature, they’re formulated with herbal extracts and key nutrients known to help maintain a healthy liver, including silymarin—a natural compound found in milk thistle—plus turmeric extract sourced from turmeric root, and n-acetyl cysteine—a naturally occurring amino acid. N-acetyl cysteine is added to help promote normal liver function including detoxification, to support overall health for your dog. Plus, these soft chews are naturally flavored with cheese and chicken liver so they’re a delicious treat you can give as daily maintenance.

Key Benefits

  • Helps promote liver health with key herbal extracts and nutrients formulated to assist in maintaining normal liver function.
  • Formulated with silymarin, a naturally occurring compound sourced from the milk thistle plant, plus turmeric to help support the liver’s normal detoxification process.
  • Contains n-acetyl cysteine to work synergistically with the herbal ingredients to help promote healthy liver function in dogs of all sizes.
  • Naturally flavored with cheese and chicken liver so they’re a supplement dogs can actually enjoy; give daily according to your dog’s weight.
  • Comes in a convenient container with an easy-to-open lid to preserve maximum freshness.

Now Lightning is a very healthy dog, no issues that we know of (other than his intense fear of moving things like bikes and skateboards), but he is also our "senior" dog since he is now SEVEN years old.  So why not take whatever steps one can to keep him healthy!


That sounds like a good plan to me!!!  AND because I am a 70 lb. hunk of muscle, I get to have 3 1/2 chews per day!!!  A 90 count bottle is fairly reasonably priced AND your first item will be 50% off at Chewy.com.


Maybe one day Misty and Timber will get some liver supplements too, but for now they are all content to get another kind of tasty treat from Mom.

We received this product at no cost to us and no obligation to share our thoughts with you.  But we think Chewy.com deserves a shout out for another great product AND for its thoughtfulness for its customers.

Silly Sibe Saturday




So there we were, Lightning and I, having a good snooze on the coolaroo bed - yes, Lightning can sleep with his head up:) - when along comes the Momster with the flashy beast and disrupts our nap.



WHAT??? 
Mom has a spoon rest, why can't I have a snooter rest???

Thankful Thursday


Time for some thankfulness as we join Brian's Thankful Thursday Bloghop.



Mom wants to share her thankfulness for her six wonderful grandchildren.  It has been a week of laughs, fun, and good times together as all six got to spend time together.





At the Escape Room with Grandma and one of our human sisters and all the Grands:  from left to right, Sisters K and C (with Grandma behind C), Texas Guy J, Shades B (the youngest), J (brother to K and twin to C), Hatted T (brother to B), and Sister C (Mom to B and T).  They had a blast trying to find Beasley's Billions and thankfully they managed to escape the room in the allotted time.




The lineup on the curb enjoying some shaved ice: B with Tiger's Blood, K and C with Cherry, Texas J with Pink Lemonade, T with Rock and Roll, and Twin J with Cotton Candy.  They LOVED it - so refreshing and tasty.


And now bring on the WHIRLY BALL!!!



Yesterday the gang had so much fun playing Whirly Ball.  It has become a family tradition to do this activity at Power Play at least once a year.  Usually all the Moms and Dads of the grands play too, but only Mom C. was home during the day.  It was the first time for little B so you will him doing some practice driving initially.  The big kids were so good to him, they all helped him score some points too.  Mom says she is so grateful to be blessed with six kind and loving grands.

BUT . . .


she also adds that time alone with her three favorite furries was quite blissful today.

Mischief Monday


Just a little outdoor fun to amuse you today:)



Life is a little crazy here for Mom as she tries to juggle all the various little biped schedules and find some fun time for them all with our Texas boy who is visiting this week.  We hear there are plans for an escape room, some whirly ball, some time at the gym for basketball and pickle ball, and maybe a movie.  We will try to visit and comment, but we promise to at least keep up to date by reading your posts.  We hope to be back to "normal" by the end of the week.

Pee Ess:  Please excuse our yard - between the heat, lack of rain, and the pitter patter of paws, our lawn is suffering:)
