Hi everyone, it’s Millie & Walter here! It’s time for this month’s Chewy.com review. As usual our mom procrastinated and we are doing our review at the last minute…almost literaly. This month we are trying a Benebone Peanut Butter Flavored Wishbone Dog Chew Toy. You can read all about them at the link or click on the picture below to see a bigger image.

There are other flavors of this bone available so if peanut butter isn’t your favorite we are sure you can find one that suits you. Let’s get this review going.

Our mom chose this for us because we love to chew on Nylabones and she wanted to compare this to them. Here is a picture of the Benebone with one of our well worn Nylabone Wishbone chews.

The Benebone is close in size to what the Nylabone was before we chewed it to death. There is one thing very different with the Benebone and that is the fact that it has a curve to it. You can probably see it better in some of our other pictures below.

If you don't look at it Millie maybe mom will open it for us.

The wait is killing me! Mom you are torturing us by making us pose with it for so long!

I can’t wait much longer. That sure smells great!

As usual our mom tortured us with many pictures before we could actually chew it but we finally got to try it.

This is a great chew toy!

We also filmed a little video of our review. Where you can really see how we chew it.

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

As you can see we both loved it. It’s a great size and the curve makes it easy to hold in our paws. This is a toy we will get a lot of use out of for a long time. If you have a hard chewer you should go order one from Chewy.com right now!

Save Those Stamps IconHi everyone it’s Millie & Walter here! Do you remember last year when we asked everyone to save your stamps and send them to us? Well, we are doing it again this year. We have already received a few cards from our Blogville friends so we’re sure some of you have too.

Did you know that the stamps that come with all those cards can help the Retired Greyhound Trust across the pond? Yes they can! So we are asking you to Save Those Stamps! and send them to us.

This is the pile of stamps we ended up with last year from about 30 friends.

Millie Walter - with stamp pile

We will be collecting stamps to send to the Retired Greyhound Trust (RGT) in the UK. Every kilogram (about 2.2 lbs.) of used stamps collected can be sold in aid of the RGT. Their target is £1,500 ($2345 USD) which is the cost of kenneling a dog for a year.

If you are on Oreo’s mailing list then you should already have our home address. If not then just leave us a comment asking for the mailing address and we will email it to you. Save up all your stamps and after the holidays just put them in an envelope and send them to us (make sure you have enough postage in case it weighs more than one ounce).

If it is easier for you to send your stamps directly to RGT their address is:

Retired Greyhound Trust
2nd Floor
Park House
1-4 Park Terrace
Worcester Park

Lets shower those retired greyhounds with a ton of stamps…well okay a ton would be a bit too expensive to send but wouldn’t it be great if we had 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) to send them? Please feel free to grab the Save Those Stamps! icon above and promote it on your blog by linking back to this post or our permanent Save Those Stamps page.

Thanks, in advance, to all of you for making this so successful.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here. We haven’t been around much because our mom was away at a bridal shower for her niece in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. We had a great time at home with our dad but after looking at our mom’s phone we were shocked by what we saw. First we have to applaud our canine cousins for their masterful disobedience.

That wasn’t anything bad to see at all but the next picture was a bit disturbing.

Now we have heard that our mom is very fond of kitties but our dad isn’t so that is why we don’t have any kitty siblings. We can’t really blame our mom for wanting a little snuggle from Downton Tabby but Rolo is trying to take our place. The best we can hope is that our mom was feeling sad about being away from us and asked Rolo for a hug. Yeah…we will go with that.

Okay, now we have to get to the most disturbing evidence of our cheating mom. Apparently one night Downton Tabby decided she wanted to sleep with our mom. According to our mom Downton spent most of the night near the foot of the bed on a very soft blanket but come the morning when they were both waking up Downton really had her way with our mom.

Good morning Aunt Cindy

Let me rub against your face. I know my humans always like it.

We couldn’t believe that our mom looked like she was enjoying being attacked by a cat but then we found this video.

Did you see that our mom was actually smiling! We are glad our mom was welcomed into our cousins home with open paws but Downton Tabby may have gone just a bit too far.

Oh...sorry Aunt Cindy...are you having trouble breathing?

It appears she was trying to smother our mom. Obviously our mom survived since she came home safe and sound last week.

Don't hold it against me cousins. I do this to everyone I meet.

Well, we guess we can’t be too upset with Downton Tabby. After all we think our mom couldn’t help herself since she hasn’t gotten a kitty fix in quite a long time but we just wish our mom didn’t look so happy while being smothered by a cat.
