Hi everyone! It’s Walter here! It’s time for our second November Chewy.com review. For our second review my mom picked out a toy just for me. Millie isn’t into playing with toys much.

There are two things in this box!

Here is the Frisco Plush with Rubber Tug & Fetch No Squeak Football Dog Toy. It comes in two colors.

We chose red. The other color is blue.

According to Chewy.com:

“Energetic pups have met their match with the Frisco Plush with Rubber Tug & Fetch No Squeak Football Dog Toy. It’s made with a tough fabric exterior and durable thermoplastic rubber for added strength, so it can hold up to some pretty tough tumbling during supervised play. Toss it or tug it—the football shape is perfect for playing tug-o-war and it has a built-in handle that makes it easy to throw for fetch. Plus, there are no squeakers so no matter how rambunctious your pooch gets while playing, there’s no extra noise! It’s the perfect toy to give your dog the daily exercise and stimulation he needs to stay healthy.”

Some of the key benefits of this toy are:

  • Designed for energetic dogs that need stronger toys, with sturdy fabric and durable thermoplastic rubber for added sturdiness.
  • Squeaker-less design lets you have all the playtime fun with none of the noise.
  • Football shape is perfect for tossing and grabbing for fetch and tug-o-war.
  • Toss it farther—swing the built-in handle to sling the toy even further for even more fun and exercise.
  • Hassle-free way to add in daily exercise and mental stimulation to help keep your dog healthy.

I can’t wait to play with this toy!
Hey Walter you should see what’s going on outside.

Check out the video to see how much I enjoyed this toy.

After playing with this toy in the house we went outside.

It’s easy to get my mouth around it

Mom won’t let me chew on the handle

Fetching this toy is lots of fun

I need a little break after all that play

As you can see I loved this toy and give it 4 paws up (because that is all the paws I have) and I recommend it to all my friends. If you are looking for a new toy for your list for Santa Paws I highly recommend this one.

Please remember that every dog plays differently and, since not all toys are created equal, it’s always best to keep a close watch on your pup in case things get ruff. Supervised play will help toys last longer and most importantly keep your pal safe. No dog toy is truly indestructible, so always remove the toy from playtime if pieces begin to break off.

So far this one is holding up well. My dad brought it out to play with me the day Millie had her surgery and we had lots of fun together.

Millie wants to thank all of you for all the good wishes about her tooth extraction. Everything went well and she is recovering fine.


This month I’m joining Koru Bear for the Chewy.com blog hop.

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. Do you have jobs around your house that you do to help out your pawrents? Well I do and it is so much fun.

Every day when the mail comes I wait for my pawrents to sort through it.

Then they hand me the junk mail and I take care  of it for them.

This junk mail is a bit gamy.

Here is a little video of how I help.

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

Sometimes I help by making big envelopes into a jigsaw puzzle. I’m really good at just ripping things apart and not eating any of it. The fun part is in the end my pawrents have to clean up all the mess. I would love to hear about the jobs you do to help your pawrents around the house.

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. Remember a couple of posts ago when my mom told you about using a valve from an inflatable ball in the doll she made? Well I wanted to show you how I helped her get that valve out of the ball.

I had a little help from my dad because he blew the ball up for me.

Then I took the ball to our living room and gave it a good sniff.

I had fun shaking it and tossing it around a bit.

Don’t mind the mess behind me in front of that chair. That is the remnants from the packing pillows that came in the box with these toy balls. I had to destroy them first.

I had a great time showing that ball who was boss. If you want to see all the action you can check out my video.

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

My mom made sure I didn’t tear up the ball too much and ruin the valve she needed. It’s always lots of fun helping my pawrents out with any shredding they need. Do you help your pawrents out like that too?

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here. We are joining our friends and have hopped on the Blogville Pawty Plane for a Valentine’s Day trip to Paris!

We are double dating with Walter’s girl Tuiren and her brother Fenris. After we landed in Paris each couple had different plans on how we wanted to spend our time. Millie and Fenris started out their day with a nice lunch on a rooftop terrace and then finished the day with a moonlight stroll around the city. Here is the postcard Millie & Fenris sent home.

Walter and Tuiren had different plans and went straight to the Eiffel Tower where we enjoyed running up and down all those steps. We worked up quite an appetite so we finished the night with a romantic gourmet dinner where we could see the Eiffel Tower all lit up. Here is Walter and Tuiren’s postcard home.

Millie was blushing when we got back on the plane to go home so we think Fenris might have stolen a kiss along the way. Tuiren was a little nervous when the plane took off so Walter sat next to her so he could hold her paw.

We all had a great time and just wish we could have spent more time there. Maybe some other time we will all go for a longer visit. Be sure to stop by the Postcards From Paris blog hop that Mayor Arty has organized to see all the fun everyone had.

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. We live in an area where it snows almost every day. If it isn’t from a weather system moving through then it’s from lake effect. When you live on the south (or east) side of one of the Great Lakes you get to enjoy extra snow that most of the country doesn’t.

Millie and I have been enjoying ourselves playing in it almost every day.

I love to play with my Jolly Ball

My Jolly Ball lost its rope a long time ago but I still play with it. I use the hole where the rope was to grab it.

Sometimes I like to lick the snow off it too. Here is a video of some of my ball play and of me trying to catch snow balls that my dad tossed into the big pile of snow.

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

As you can see Millie was just watching me play and hunting for vermin under the snow.

We have this snow pile on our patio that our pawrents make for us to dig in. It’s snow much fun! Now I have a serious question for one of my special readers.

Miss Tuiren will you go to Paris with me next week for Valentine’s Day?

Miss Tuiren if you remember we were in Paris in 2014 for Date Day and I would love to take you back there next Wednesday for Valentine’s Day. There is going to be a blog hop where we can send a postcard to our friends to tell them all about our trip. We could even double date with Fenris and Millie if he wants to.

I sure hope she says yes! It’s snowing again today so Millie and I will be back outside playing.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie here. The weather so far this winter has been miserably cold especially in the mornings when it has been in the single digits (degrees F). When it’s that cold neither of us can stay outside for more than a couple of minutes without trying to levitate and not walk in the snow. There is one way to make that better.

I really don’t like these booties.

In order to give us enough time to do our business we get fleece booties put on our feet. I think most of you would agree wearing booties is no fun. Here is a little video of how much I hate wearing these things.

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

The funny thing is that once I get outside in the snow it’s like I don’t have any booties on and can walk and run around normally. Why is that?

BTW I have such tiny feet that my mom custom made my booties to fit me. We were so happy that the temps this afternoon were in the 20’s and we got to have some play time in the snow. We have about a foot of it on the ground right now. That was lots of fun.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We’ve just finished a crazy week (or so). Let’s catch you up.

It all started last Wednesday night, March 8th. Our area in Rochester, NY was experiencing a very nasty wind storm. The gusts were predicted to be around 60 mph but the highest gust registered that day was 84 mph! Needless to say by 7:30 pm we lost power. Mom and dad gathered some lights and candles and we all settled down in the bedroom hoping the power would come back soon.

Hooking by Headlamp

It was too early to go to bed so mom did some crochet with the help of her headlamp. We finally turned off the lights and went to bed around 9:30 pm. By 7 am we were awake and cold. Thanks to our gas fireplace we didn’t stay cold for long. Mom was worried about the food in the fridge and freezer so she got our generator going and then we had some lights too. Luckily our power came back on by about 3 pm.

Our Oma wasn’t so lucky she lost power the same day as us and after spending a couple nights with friends came to our house on Saturday since her house was still without power.

Oma you give good pats

We enjoyed having an extra pair of hands around to pet us and one more plate to lick clean after each meal. Oma was lucky to get her power back late the next day so she went home after dinner Sunday.

All was calm around here for about 24 hours and then Snow Storm Stella made her way to us. It snowed for about 48 hours straight and when it was all done we had over 26 inches (about 66 cm) of new snow on the ground! That’s 3rd on the all time list for continuous snow in March for our area.

Look at the snow drifts on our patio and roof!

We didn’t let a little snow stop us from enjoying a our time outside though. Dad had to clean some snow off the roofs below our skylights.

The snow was over mom’s knees.

And mom had to fill up the suet feeder for the birds. It was still snowing and blowing so hard it was coming down sideways.

I’m going to catch you Millie

We did what we usually do and had a blast dashing through the snow.

I have to break a trail to the big tree

You can see how deep the snow is but that didn’t slow us down at all.

Good work on the roof dad

Here is a video of some of our action.

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

I love to just sit in the snow

Millie just loves to sit in the snow waiting for Walter to come out and play with her but sometimes she would just take off behind the plantings to explore.

Where did she go?

We didn’t let Stella slow us down and had a great time playing. It was quite cold at around 15° F (-9° C) so the snow was a very fine, dry powder.

Will this be our last storm of the season?

As you can see we made the most of a crazy week. It’s been a couple of days since all that snow fell and our temps have climbed to the upper 30’s (3-4° C). All that snow has started to melt and the snow pack has shrunk to about 6-8″.

This might not be our last snow of the season but we sure don’t expect to get that much again until next year. After such a mild February this March has been quite wild so far.
