Chewy box

Hi everyone, it’s Walter here! It’s time for this month’s Chewy.com review. We all love when we see this box get dropped off on our front porch. This month our mom chose Merrick Jerky Chip Treats™ for us.

We tried the Real Salmon + Potato Recipe but there are other flavors of this treat available so if salmon isn’t your favorite we are sure you can find one that suits you.

Millie wasn’t around when I got started exploring the Chewy box.

If I could just get my nose in here I can open the box.

Mom opened the box for me and let me explore what was inside.

All I see is paper. Where are the treats?

Mom took the paper out and then I hit the jackpot!

If I could just get my teeth on that package.

If I could just get my teeth on that bag.

After a short while I was getting closer to liberating that bag from the box and that was about the same time that Millie realized what I was doing and came to investigate too.

No review is complete without the obligatory posing with the bag.

We decided to read the back of the package to see what these treats were made of.

Look at all the fantastic ingredients in these treats. They are made in the USA too!

Here are the details on these Jerky Chip Treats:

Merrick Jerky Chip Treats are oven-baked, all-natural dog cookie treats filled with protein-packed jerky chips as the first ingredient, made from real deboned chicken, beef, lamb, or salmon. Unlike many dog treats, Merrick Jerky Chip Treats are grain-free and gluten-free with no corn, soy or wheat. And, like all Merrick food and treats, Merrick Jerky Chip Treats are made in the USA with no ingredients from China.

The ingredients are:

Deboned Salmon, Deboned Beef, Dried Potatoes, Peas, Garbanzo Beans, Tapioca Starch, Pea Fiber, Olive Oil, Dried Carrots, Brown Sugar, Whey Protein Concentrate, Dried Apples, Caramel Color, Gelatin, Yogurt Powder, Salt, Dried Lemon Peel, Cultured Skim Milk Powder, Mixed Tocopherols (a preservative).

Mom thought the treats look like small chocolate chip cookies but they sure don’t taste or smell like them.

Oh come on mom! I can't wait much longer! If I don't look at it I can't be tempted to eat it.

Oh come on mom! I can’t wait much longer!
If I don’t look at it I can’t be tempted to eat it.

We finally were given the “okay” to eat our treats and I didn’t waste a second pouncing on that cookie.

Hey! Did mom say okay?!

Hey! Did mom say okay?!

Millie was daydreaming and was a little slow getting started.

This smells delish!

This smells delish!

Nom, nom, nom!

Nom, nom, nom!

As you can see both Millie and I loved them. They are a great size for a snack and can even fit in a Kong if you try hard (we know because our dad did it). What are you waiting for? Go order some from Chewy.com right now!

Hi everyone. I’ve had to turn over a new leaf in my sewing room. It seems that someone likes to rummage through the trash can when he is bored.

Hi mom. I was making sure the zipper package was empty.

That was one day…a few days later I found this…

I think you left some zipper in the garbage.

I think you left a zipper in the garbage.

Hey mom why did you put the trash can on the desk?

I don’t think you really have to ask do you Walter? Of course sometimes I forget to put the trash can back up when I’m done working in there and enter to another mess almost every time. In reality I can never get mad at him…could you?

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Dory for Flower Friday.

FlowerFridayBadge2015

It’s been a long time since I did a Flower Friday post this year but it’s not for lack of flowers. So here are my excuses…the month of June was the wettest on record for our area so it was difficult to find a nice day to take pictures and the flowers faded fast because of the rain…then because of all the rain we were swarmed by mosquitoes in July! I don’t know about you but I don’t like walking around my yard when mosquitoes are buzzing in my ears and trying to fly up my nose, even though they never bite me. The past month has been dryer so the skeeter population has dropped to a tolerable level making it easier to spend time in the yard.

Enough with the excuses. Today I’m going to show you some of the daylilies we have in our yard. (Don’t forget you can always click on an image to see a bigger view)

Hi everyone, it’s Walter here! It’s time for this month’s Chewy.com review. We all love when we see this box get dropped off on our front porch. This month our mom chose Castor & Pollux Good Buddy All Americans Beef Recipe Grain-Free Dog Treats for us (that name is a mouthful in itself!). There are other flavors of this treat available so if beef isn’t your favorite we are sure you can find one that suits you.

Oh these smell delish!

Mom opened the box for me and let me explore what was inside. After a short while I was getting closer to liberating that bag from the box.

Come with me little bag!

Come with me little bag!

I was so excited I grabbed that bag and ran to the bedroom. Here is a short video of what happened next.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to see it.

You can tell by the short duration of the video that mom stopped me before I got too far and spilled all those treats on the bed. We went back to the sewing room so we could finish the taste test.

First I posed with the bag

Then Millie came in and we had to pose some more.

How much longer are you going to make us wait mom? I can't control my licker!

How much longer are you going to make us wait mom?
I can’t control my licker!

Then to torture us even more mom made us pose with treats on the floor and practice the “leave it” command!

Leave it is so hard!

Leave it is so hard!
I still can’t control my licker!

We aren’t sure why mom only put out three of those treats but I was faster than Millie and grabbed two of them.

Nom, nom, nom...

Nom, nom, nom…

As you can see they are really tiny treats. Mom says she is going to use them for training and when we go for walks.

Oh these are delish...can I have some more?

Oh these are delish…can I have some more?

Mom was nice enough after making us do all that waiting to give each of us a few more treats.

Let go of the treat mom!

Let go of the treat mom!

These treats were delish and Millie and I give them 8 paws up…since that is all the paws we have.

If you are looking for a small treat for training or just have a small dog these are a great choice. As you can see from the bag they are made in the USA too. You can read all the details about them by clicking on the link under their picture above. What are you waiting for? Go order some from Chewy.com right now!
