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 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!

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!

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!

Silly Millie

Hi everyone, it’s Millie here! Sorry we’ve been away for so long. There really is no excuse except that our secretary just hasn’t been very cooperative in updating our blog. Here is a picture of me in case you forgot how cute I am.

Millie - laying down

A few weeks ago mom took this video of me and thought it might be instructive for all of you.

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

As you can see roaching and rolling in the grass is not as simple as it might look. I hope you enjoyed my tutorial on how to get the best stink on you. I don’t remember what it was that I was rolling in but mom and dad sure weren’t happy with me. I didn’t get a full bath but they did wet down my back to get the stink off. Oh well I guess I will just have to find another stinky thing in the yard to roll on.

Toy Review Time

ChewyDotCom logo.20130121

Hi everyone! It’s me Walter! Boy have I had some fun this past month with our Chewy.com review item. When we got our email with the choices from Miss Sydney I told mom I wanted to get the KONG Squeezz Ball with Handle toy so I could give it to my dad for Father’s day. Isn’t that thoughtful of me? Millie doesn’t do much playing with toys so I get to do this review.

Size Medium

Mom forgot to specify a size so Miss Sydney sent us a medium. Even though I’m a 50 lb. boy the medium sized toy isn’t too small for me. If you order one you get to pick the size but the color is random. We were glad the one we got is red so it shows up in the lawn well.

I think the ball part is the perfect size and is similar in size to a tennis ball. There is a lot you can do with this toy so here is a little video to show you how.

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

You can really kick up your heels playing with this toy!

It was a pretty warm day so after a while I had to take a break.

Now that is a big tongue and yes it is covered with grass.

and yes it is covered with grass.

Mom kept trying to get me to play tug with her but I just wasn’t into it that day. Of course the next day when she and her camera weren’t around my dad and I had a good time playing tug. BOL!

I give the KONG Squeezz Ball with Handle toy four paws up out of four. It sure is a lot of fun and best of all you can get your mom or dad involved too. I also want to give Chewy.com a big thank you for letting me review this fun toy. We were also sent some Natural Balance Dental Chews but we haven’t done any taste testing of them yet because mom is lazy but we hope to do that soon.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie here. Mom said I have to tell you all about this mischief but I’m not really sure what she is talking about. Do you remember when my mom finally got a video of what I like to do after I eat my breakfast (and sometimes my dinner)? Well instead of messing around in the living room sometimes after dinner I like to go upstairs and have some fun on the big bed.

I had nothing to do with this momI was just helping turn down the bed for the night

Dad was the first one upstairs after me and this is what he found.

Nice turn down job Millie

Of course the first thing dad did was call mom to bring the camera.

Oh hi mom! Is something wrong?

Mom said it was a little early for a bedtime turn down. I really enjoy throwing the pillows around a bit too. After all the picture taking mom and dad put the bed back the way they wanted it (spoil sports).

You do know I'm the good one, right mom?I can't believe they put the bed back togdther

You do know I’m the good one, right mom?
I can’t believe they put the bed back together

Well I sure had fun while it lasted. Do any of you like to “play” on the big bed too?

Happy Father’s Day!

Hi everyone it’s Millie & Walter here. We just wanted to do a quick post to celebrate the bestest dog dad around.

Charlie Walter Millie - rope play 3

He takes breaks from working in the yard to play with us.

We love to slobber all over him with kisses to thank him for all the times he plays with us. And best of all…

We love to snuggle up close to him when all the fun is over and we need a little rest.

Happy Father’s Day Charlie. You are the best dog dad in the world! And Happy Father’s Day to all the anipal Dad’s out there in Blogville.

Our mom would like to also remember her dad on this day, the first Father’s Day since his passing.

Hi everyone, it’s Cindy here! Don’t listen to Millie and Walter. They don’t know what really is cute and what is not. Be prepared for some ultra cute pictures and video.

We have a very large willow tree in our front yard. Over the years many woodpeckers have hammered holes in this tree. Until recently we have never actually seen anything using these holes for homes. On a very rainy morning Charlie saw a mother squirrel bring her babies to a large hole in this willow tree.

Willow with squirrel nest - with words

She made a total of four trips to bring the whole family to the new nest. Since she was moving them during a rain storm we figured the reason was because they were getting soaked where they were.

The following day the sun came out and so did the babies.

Do you think it's safe to go out?

Do you think it’s safe to go out?
I thought mom said to stay in here.

It's okay if we stay close to the nest.

These adorable babies spent much of the day running up and down the willow tree. Here is a short video of some of the action.

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

Yesterday this group of hooligans was scurrying around the backyard while Millie and Walter were inside. The pups sure had fun were frustrated watching all this action through the windows.

We actually aren’t sure if these are grey squirrels or red squirrels. We thought the mom that was carrying the babies was a grey squirrel (we were viewing during a rain storm from a long distance) but when looking at the babies they seem to have more reddish fur than expected. We do have both species living on our property so it could be either one. No matter what they are they sure are cute and fun to watch.

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

FlowerFridayBadge2015

Let’s start with some wide views of the yard. Then we will zoom in an get some close up views of the flowers.

Here is a quick video panning around the yard from the patio. A lot has changed since the last video like this I posted a month ago.

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

Now let’s take a closer look. (Don’t forget you can always click on an image to see a bigger view)

In this corner of the yard we have a nice variety of green and red foliage. On the right are some viburnum blooming and in the middle is our Miss Kim Lilac.

It’s too bad someone hasn’t invented smell-o-vision yet because the scent from the lilacs is divine.

The perennial garden is looking great!

Most of the plants in the perennial garden survived our harsh winter. Charlie has moved a few things around and added a couple of plants too.

Amsonia Blue Ice (Common name: Blue Star)

This Amsonia is one of the new additions in the perennial garden. I love the delicate blue flowers.

I’ve shown you pictures of some of these flowers so lets zoom in on some we haven’t see yet this year.

One of the new additions in this area are a couple of Yellow Knock Out Roses.

The roses start out the dark yellow and then fade to a pale yellow as seen above on the left. The weigela flowers are similar in that they start out as a darker pink and then fade to almost white with pink centers.

To finish today’s tour around the yard we have a Japanese Maple surrounded by two different viburnum.
