Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We wanted to make sure we got in on Dory’s “No Tricks Just Treats for Shelters” blog hop. It was kind of a trick that lead to us having these treats to donate.

Hey Millie look what Chewy.com sent us by accident What do you mean by accident?

You may remember from our post yesterday that we received our monthly treats from Chewy.com to taste test. Well the very next day we found another box from Chewy on our doorstep and we hadn’t ordered anything. There were these two bags in the box. One is Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Mixers Lamb Formula Freeze-Dried Dog Food Topper and the other was Wellness CORE Pure Rewards Grain-Free Beef & Venison Jerky Bites Dog Treats.

What do you think we should do with these? Aren't we going to do a taste test?

Our mom sent an email to Miss Sydney at Chewy.com and she said we could review them or we could give them away to a friend or shelter.

What did you say mom? We have to give these away?

Mom said that since Dory is hosting this fun event encouraging all of us to support our local shelters and rescue groups that it would be a good idea if we gave these to our rescue, Big Dogs Big Hearts.

I was really looking forward to tasting these jerky bites. Do you think the foster dogs will like these mom?

Well mom thought the dogs in foster care with our rescue would love to have these. We bet the foster pawrents can use them to do some training with them.

Okay mom.  I guess it's okay to give these away.

Okay mom. If you think that is the best thing to do we will give them away.
We know how much the rescue dogs will enjoy them although I was so looking forward to trying the jerky.

Our mom said they will be delivered to our rescue the next time she can get to one of their meet and greet events at our local pet store. We know it’s the right thing to do and are happy to join Dory in this great Halloween tradition she has.

Gotcha Day-banner

Hi everyone, it’s Walter here. OMD it’s hard to imagine that it’s already been two years since I came to live in my wonderful home.

I love hanging out in our yard

Can you believe that this is what I looked like then?

I sure was a scrawny kid then. Now I’m a lean, mean, running machine.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to see it. I hope you noticed that Millie never catches me and I always call off the chase by running into the garage.

Did you see how I smoked Millie? BOL!

Of course I have to thank my rescue Big Dogs Big Hearts and foster pawrents Lindsay and Jon for helping me find my forever home. I sure love my family and would never want to live anywhere else.

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.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

millie walter - whats charlie eating

We sure have a lot to be thankful for…Big Dogs Big Hearts rescue that brought us all together, friends in Blogville and everywhere, and of course our family, but the one thing we are both thankful for today is…SNOW! Oh boy do we both love to play in the snow. Okay we love to play no matter what the weather, but we just had our first snow of the season and was it fun! Take a look at some of the action from yesterday.

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

We always have so much fun zooming around our yard and the snow makes it that much more fun.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone and to all our friends that celebrate it have a Happy Hanukkah!

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

Millie in party hat - Happy Gotcha Day

It’s hard for me and my pawrents to believe that one year ago today I came to live with them. The year has just flown by. Let’s take a quick walk down memory lane.

Foster Parents Michael & Darcy watch as Charlie has Millie sit for a treat.

I had no idea that day, one year ago, when my foster pawrents brought me to mommy and daddy’s house that they were going to leave me there. I was a little upset at first when they left, but daddy played with me a little, I took a nap and when I woke up I knew I was home and didn’t worry about where Darcy and Michael went. I still love to see my foster pawrents and get pretty crazy when I visit with them. I will never forget what a great time I had at their home.

So much has happened over the past year. I made some new friends, met a fellow blogger and learned that grandpawrents give good scritches. One of my favorite things was learning about snow and how much fun it is to play in.

I love to dig in the snow!

Of course there was a bit of mischief along the way too. Do you remember what happened to the  “The Last of the Mohicans”

I swear I heard squirrels in here

Of course my life changed a lot about half way through my first year here when Walter joined us. I knew from the minute I first met Walter that we would be the best of friends forever.

As all of our followers know we play hard and sleep hard. I would have to say that Walter is one of the best things that happened around here this past year. He really is a great brother and always so much fun to play with, wrestle with and chase. On that note I will turn the blog over to him because today Walter becomes a real big boy!

walter - sitting with party hat - happy birthday

Woo Hoo! I can’t believe I’m a big boy now. I have to give a shout out to my brother Brodie (if that is still his name) and wish him a happy birthday too. We had a rough start until we were rescued by Big Dogs Big Hearts, but I’m glad I had him by my side through that ordeal. I sure do miss him and hope we can see each other sometime and I hope he is as happy as I am in my forever home.

puppy birthday cake 2Mom was baking all day yesterday and she said there would be a special cake for Millie and I to share (I don’t think it really looks like the one in the picture though). Grab a plate and enjoy some of our cake and make sure to grab a drink too. We have all kinds of soft drinks and some great New York State apple cider. Mom says we are still too young for any of the harder stuff, but I bet some of our furends might have a flask or two with them {{wink, wink}}.

I might have had a rough start in life, but since I came to my forever home life could not be better.

I love playing with water!

I love playing with water!

I learned how much fun playing in water could be although I still haven’t been swimming yet. I will put that on my list for this next year. Of course I have had a great time getting to know my sister and having the time of my life playing with her.

Sticking together

All in all I could not be a happier boy. Millie and I want to thank Big Dogs Big Hearts for not only bringing us to our pawrents, but for bringing us together too. We are lucky pups to have the pawrents we do (although some might say they are lucky to have us) and we also want to thank all our friends in Blogville for joining in our big Celebration Day! Let the party begin!
