Hi everyone, it’s Millie & Walter here! It’s time for this month’s Chewy.com review. This month we are reviewing two things but we are starting out with Blue Buffalo Wilderness Bayou Biscuits with Alligator & Catfish Grain-Free Dog Treats.

Since we were getting two things, our order from Chewy.com came in a box. This isn’t as much fun as destroying a bubble wrap envelope so we will show you some of the box action later.

What's in here Walter I don't know but it sure smells great!

Does it really say these biscuits are made with alligator & catfish?
They’re grain-free and made in the USA too!

Are you sure you haven't already tried one? I think I smell them on your breath. Buzz off Walter! The bag isn't even open yet.

We are sitting very nice mom. Those look like a good size biscuit. Hand it over woman!

These biscuits are a nice size and thick, but not too hard to chew.

Don’t even think of breaking them in smaller pieces.
I don’t think mom is strong enough to do that Walter.

I'm not waiting. We've been through enough torture! I'm waiting...I'm waiting...I'm waiting...

I’m waiting…I’m waiting…I’m waiting…

Finally our stingy mom gave us our biscuits but she tried to make us wait even longer! Of course Walter waited for the release but Millie walks to the beat of her own drum.

Here is a video that goes back to getting the bag out of the box and shows Walter eating one of the biscuits.

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

As you can see in the video the biscuits break into small pieces when you first bite into them. Even Walter, who normally tries to inhale every treat, broke the biscuit into smaller pieces but of course he left no crumb behind.

We loved these treats! There is no question this is an 8 paws up (because that is all the paws we have) great treat and we recommend them to all our friends.

DressUpforWhitley

Hi everyone, it’s Millie & Walter here. Today we are joining our friends around Blogville to honor our good friend Whitley Westie who crossed the Rainbow Bridge recently. She was one of the best dressed doggies in all the land so we are all dressing up in her honor today.

We aren’t much for dressing up but our mom thought we could just do a couple of flash backs to some of our past Halloween celebrations. Some of our new friends probably haven’t seen these and if you did we hope you enjoy seeing them again.

First up is from 2013 when Millie had a cute Candy Corn dress and Walter was a bumble bee.

Millie didn’t mind her dress and really liked the cute ruffled skirt.

How do you like my cute gathered skirt?

As you might be able to tell our mom crocheted our costumes. She didn’t have a dog sized pattern for either of these outfits but our mom is great at improvising. The next year she was at it again with her crochet hook and turned out a couple of sweaters and hats to dress us up as two of her favorite South Park characters.

We don’t think we knew Whitley back when we wore these outfits so we thought it was fitting that we show them again now to honor her. Dory is hosting a blog hop of all the “Dress Up For Whitley” participants so be sure to hop over there and see all the great outfits.

FlowerFridayBlogHop 2016

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Dory for her Flower Friday Blog Hop. We are still a little slow going with our flowers but we will show you what we have. Our daffodils are finally blooming.

We have pink and white bleeding hearts that have started to bloom.

As promised from our last Flower Friday our Fragrant Viburnum is in full bloom and giving the yard a wonderful smell.

Our serviceberry is also in bloom and was host to our first Yellow Swallowtail butterfly of the season.

Here is another view of the serviceberry next to one of our showiest Japanese Maple trees in the spring. We just love how the leaves come out red and eventually will fade to green.

If you are wondering where Millie & Walter are they can usually be found hanging out in the shade of the Katsura tree. You might have to click on the image to make it bigger to see them.

To finish here is one of our garden sculptures, a German Shepherd Dog, surrounded by geranium that will bloom later this spring.

Well that is all we have to share for Flower Friday. Be sure to pop over to Dory’s Blog to see who else is participating.

We are also joining the See Beautiful hop today too.

Hi everyone, it’s Millie & Walter here! It’s time for this month’s Chewy.com review. Wow! Can you believe that we have posted 3 days in a row? Don’t get used to it. We’re sure it’s just a fluke.

What did you get for us this month mom?

What did you get for us this month mom?

Of course the first thing you have to do is get the treats out of the envelope they came in. As you know Walter enjoys opening the envelope almost more than getting to taste the treats.

Let's get this party started!

Here is a video of all that action.

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

Now that Walter got the treat bag out of the envelope we can see that we are reviewing Merrick Backcountry Great Plains Real Beef Sausage Cuts Dog Treats.

This is torture mom!

Millie, mom said to leave it! When do I ever listen to commands?

We eat Merrick food every day so we know they make good stuff. Of course we had to humor our mom and pose with the bag.

We chose the Great Plains Real Beef flavor but there are a few other flavors to choose from. These treats are grain free and made in the USA which we know is important to many of us.

The treats are soft and chewy and easily break into smaller pieces. We know our pawrents love to make our treats smaller to make us think we are getting more to eat but we know the truth.

You better get that picture mom because I won't wait very long.

Please say "Okay"! Please say "Okay"!

We loved these treats!

Please mom can I have another?

There is no question this is an 8 paws up (because that is all the paws we have) great treat and we recommend them to all our friends.

FlowerFridayBlogHop 2016

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Dory for her Flower Friday Blog Hop. We haven’t had much to show you yet but a few of these pictures were taken in late March when we had a bit of a warm spell.

First up are our witch hazel. These smell so nice and the bees just love them.

Next up is our Cornelian Cherry Dogwood. The flowers were just starting to open at this point. On warm days when the buds are fully open this small tree is just full of all sorts of bees and wasps.

We have one shrub that is blooming right now.

Next up is the only flower we have blooming. We’ve had such cold nights that it was kind of drooping and I had to practically lay on my stomach to get this picture.

daffodil - small with orange center

We do have a few other daffodils that are just about to bloom.

The perennial garden is starting to grow but we are a few weeks away from any flowers here unless we get a warm period.

The only thing left to show you are some buds on our flowering shrubs.

We can’t wait for the last two viburnum to open because these too have such a fantastic fragrance. We have so many of these shrubs that when the wind is coming from the right direction the entire yard smells divine.

Well that is all we have to share for Flower Friday. Be sure to pop over to Dory’s Blog to see who else is participating.

Hi everyone! It’s me Walter.

Walter - Head shot

I can hardly believe that it is my third Gotcha Day today! I had a rough start in life with my brother but thanks to Big Dogs Big Hearts rescue and my foster pawrents Lindsay and Jon I was lucky to find a great forever home.

Pups like Millie & I, who were taken in by rescues, know how special our foster pawrents can be to us. Millie gets to see her foster pawrents when we go visit our rescue at their meet and greets but I hadn’t seen mine since the day I was adopted. Well a few months ago I finally got to see my foster mom Lindsay and boy was it a great reunion.

It all started because mom invited her Crochet and Knit group “Purl Jam” to our house for a holiday celebration just before Christmas. Foster mom Lindsay is a member of the group and mom sent her a special message hoping she could join us. Mom didn’t tell me she was coming so when I heard her voice outside when mom went to greet her I got very excited. We don’t have any photographic evidence of my greeting Lindsay but I just started jumping up and down (kind of like the dog in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZpOghdjZaA) and mom and dad worried that I wasn’t going to stop.

Eventually all the other ladies showed up and after having some snacks they went into the family room to work on their projects.

I was so happy to see Foster Mom Lindsay

Millie behaved herself and mostly laid in the middle of the floor but I just couldn’t get enough of Foster Mom Lindsay.

In between giving Foster Mom Lindsay lots of attention I did take some time to hang out with the other guests.

But I couldn’t stay away for long.

You don't mind if I sit here do you Foster Mom Lindsay?

Needless to say she didn’t get as much done on her project as some of the other ladies did. I think the look on her face says she doesn’t really mind at all.

Eventually I just couldn't keep my eyes open any longer

As you can see I settled down next to Lindsay in her chair and took a little nap.

I love my family but us rescue dogs all know how special our foster pawrents are to us too. If it weren’t for them opening their homes, we might not be in our great forever homes. Thanks Foster Mom Lindsay and Foster Dad Jon for giving me a place to hang out and learn what a loving home could be like while I waited to find my forever home. You made my Gotcha Day possible.

Before I go I have to give a little shout out to another guy celebrating his Gotcha Day too. Happy Gotcha Day Frankie Furter! We sure are a couple of lucky guys.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here. We don’t know about all of you but we have some routines that we like to stick to almost every day. After everyone has had their dinners we love to do a little wrestling in the living room. Well one day it kind of spilled over into the family room.

First we want to show you what our family room normally looks like.

Take particular notice of the location of the ottoman (with the tray on it). Now watch what happened when our living room wrestling spilled into the family room.

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

There is more room for wrestling now that the ottoman is out of the way

Please ignore the dust flying in front of the camera and our crazy eyes. Mom was using her phone since it was the closest thing to her at the time.

Sorry about making all that noise while you were trying to watch your show dad. Usually we just run around the ottoman and then back into the living room but this time we just shoved it out of our way and had a great time.

Do any of you ever rearrange the furniture while you are playing?
