Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We wanted to join the LLB Gang on their Nature Friday blog hop this week. These pictures were taken a week ago and show off some of the beautiful fall colors we had in our yard this year.

Backyard trees

The big yellow tree is our Katsura tree with our Linden tree to the right. The linden tree doesn’t really change color much before dropping all its leaves.

Japanese Maple trees with a Fringe tree in the middle

Let’s take a close look at some of those colorful leaves.

Here is a closer look at the leaves on this tree.

Multicolored leaves on same tree

We love how this tree has leaves that range in color from yellow to orange to red. This particular tree has never looked so good.

More Japanese Maple Leaves

At the back of the yard is another Japanese Maple with the beautiful leaves you see above. Let’s take a look at some non Japanese Maple trees in our yard.

Stewartia (on left) and Hickory tree

Last but not least here is a look at one of our varieties of spirea we have.

Spirea leaves

We can’t remember this spirea looking this colorful before.

That is it for a look at some of our fall foliage. We hope you enjoyed our beautiful fall colors. Since these pictures were taken most of the leaves have fallen off the trees and we even had some snow today.

Be sure to pop over to the LLB Gang blog and check out the other Nature Friday blog hop posts.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here! It’s time for our second Chewy.com review for the month. While we were outside yesterday we started our review of a Nylabone DuraChew Double Action Chew Bacon Flavor Dog Toy.

Check out that big bone!
Mom says it tastes like bacon.

Here’s a closer look at the Nylabone.

This is the “Souper” size

Chewy.com has these bones available in three sizes: Regular for dogs up to 25 lbs., “Wolf” for dogs up to 35 lbs. and “Souper” for dogs over 50 lbs. According to the information about the bone Nylabone also makes one in a “Large” size for dogs up to 50 lbs. The “Large” probably would have been the perfect size for us but our mom was afraid the “Wolf” size might be too small. We both consistently weigh about 50 lbs. so she chose the “Souper” size for us to review.

According to Chewy.com:

“The Nylabone Double Action Chew Bone Dog Toy gives you and your pup the best of both worlds, satisfying his need to chew and your need to keep bad breath at bay. The ends of the toy have a tempting bacon flavor, and the soft middle has a fresh minty scent for bad breath control. Double Action Chews have tiny bristle-like projections that control tartar, massages his gums, and keep his chompers clean.”

Some of the key benefits of these treats are:

  • Dental nubs help clean teeth, massage gums and reduce tartar while your pet chews and gnaws away.
  • Minty center freshens doggy breath making kisses much more enjoyable and a bacon flavored outside make this an irresistible toy for any pet.
  • Durable construction for lasting use so you can help keep your pet entertained and encourage safe, healthy chewing habits that save shoes and furniture from destructive chewing.
  • The unique design makes this toy easy for your pup to carry around since they can grip the center effortlessly.
  • Vet-recommended so you can feel confident about giving this toy to your furry family member.

Walter was more interested in the bone than Millie was so he did most of this review.

That’s quite a mouthful. I can taste the minty fresh center.

You can let go now mom

It was a little distracting to try the new bone outside. There were more things to sniff and check out since we hadn’t had a nice enough day to play outside for a couple of weeks so Walter picked up the review inside a bit later.

This is some good teeth scraping action

Check out the video to see how Walter enjoyed chewing the bone.

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

Just taking a little break. Don’t get any ideas Millie.

As you can see Walter really enjoyed chewing on the Nylabone. It’s a bit big and somewhat heavy to carry around but we’re sure there will be plenty of time chewing on it in the future. Millie also had a chance to try the Nylabone but no cameras were around to witness it. We both give the Nylabone DuraChew Double Action Chew Bacon Flavor Dog Toy 8 paws up (because that is all the paws we have) and we recommend it to all our friends.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here! It’s time for our Chewy.com review. We finally had a sunny day for the first time in about two weeks so we made our mom take us outside to do the review.

What’s in the box this month?

Here’s a look at what was in the box.

True Chews Chicken & Blueberry Grain-Free Bakes Dog Treats

It’s a bag of True Chews Chicken & Blueberry Grain-Free Bakes Dog Treats. There are other flavors of treats available too.

According to Chewy.com:

“They’re made with U.S.-sourced chicken as the very first ingredient, plus fresh blueberries and real, wholesome vegetables like potatoes and peas for a high-protein jerky treat that satisfies and nourishes in every bite. Since they contain zero corn, wheat, soy or anything artificial, you can truly feel good about treating your pal every day.”

  • 100% U.S.-sourced chicken raised without antibiotics, hormones or steroids is the very first ingredient.
  • Baked with fresh blueberries as well as real potatoes and peas for a savory taste and texture your pooch is sure to love.

  • Soft, chewy morsels make a perfect snack any time as well as an ideal training treat when broken into smaller pieces.
  • Made in the USA with absolutely no corn, soy, wheat, animal by-products or artificial flavors or preservatives.

Let’s see what we thought about these treats.

Those treats look good

I hope mom doesn’t break them into smaller pieces

As usual the waiting is the hardest part

Before we show you the video we wanted to show you this still shot of us waiting to take our treats. Make note of where the treats are. We pointed them out in this picture so you could tell them from the leaves on the ground.

Check out the video to see how we liked these treats.

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

Just like last time Walter didn’t take the treat right away. He is claiming that it was because he couldn’t tell where it was because it looked like one of the leaves.

We both loved True Chews Chicken & Blueberry Dog Treats and give them 8 paws up (because that is all the paws we have) and we recommend them to all our friends.

Thanks mom…I would love to have another one

Walter says he isn’t quite sure why he didn’t try to eat the treat right away because when given a second chance he wolfed it right down.

Thanks for giving me another treat to try mom

Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here! It’s time for our second Chewy.com review of the month.

What else was in the box this month?

Here’s a look at the second item that was in the box.

Solid Gold Beef Bone Broth with Turmeric Dog Food Topper

It’s a pouch of Solid Gold Beef Bone Broth with Turmeric Dog Food Topper. There are other flavors of Bone Broth available too.

We’ve never seen a container like this before.
It smells great whatever it is.

According to Chewy.com:

“This delectable topper is made with real, human grade beef bone broth and is rich in naturally occurring collagen, as well as vitamins and minerals essential for overall wellness. Added turmeric provides an aromatic and flavorful treat that even the pickiest eaters will love. Plus, this broth is easy for pet parents to use— simply add two tablespoons to your dog’s food as a tasty topper, use to moisten dry food for dogs with sensitive teeth, add to water for added flavor and to encourage proper hydration or serve on its own as a tasty treat.”

Some of the key benefits of the bone broth are:

  • Holistic, natural food topper is ideal as a tasty and nutritious meal addition, hydrating treat or for moistening kibble for dogs with sensitive teeth, like puppies or seniors.
  • Slow-simmered beef bone broth with turmeric provides an aromatic and flavorful addition to your dog’s meal.
  • Rich in collagen—a protein essential for gut health and the strength and maintenance of bones, joints and nails, which occurs naturally in beef bones.
  • Human grade beef broth is crafted with simple, recognizable ingredients you and your dog will love!
  • Easy to serve in a convenient, resealable pouch—simply shake, pour and serve.

Let’s see what we thought of the bone broth.

Measure out a couple of tablespoons per meal

We got to taste it from the spoon first

That tastes great. Can I have some more?

This really makes my dinner taste even better than before.

Good to the last drop!

Check out the video to see how we liked the bone broth on our kibble.

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

We both loved the Solid Gold Beef Bone Broth and give it 8 paws up (because that is all the paws we have) and we recommend them to all our friends.

Our mom wants to say a few words about the packaging. Hi everyone! It’s mom Cindy here. I just wanted to say that this was the first pouch with a pour top that I’ve ever used. The flexible pouch is a bit difficult to handle and when I went to pour some out onto the spoon the first time it came out very fast and Millie got a bit more than the 2 tablespoons recommended (not that I think it would be bad for her). So my word of caution is if you haven’t handled a flexible pouch to pour a liquid out of to be careful it doesn’t handle like a rigid bottle.

If we don’t look at them we won’t be tempted to go before mom says “Okay”.

Next up is the Beef & Lamb flavor

Those sure look tasty

The waiting is the hardest part!

Check out the video to see how we liked these treats.

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

Hi everyone. It’s Millie and Walter here. We are finally getting a break in our hot, dry weather and have enjoyed some time playing outside.

Today we want to show you what is blooming in our yard. Let’s start with our hydrangea. There are lots of varieties and we have quite a few different ones.

Smooth Hydrangea

Here is a close up view of a couple of the flower heads.

Next up is a mophead serrata hydrangea. This one turns a beautiful pale purple color.

We have a few Hydrangea Paniculata varieties too. These are favorites of all sorts of flying insects.


Our deciduous azalea just finished up blooming. It’s always nice to see these yellow azalea blooming in the summer.

We have one more shrub to show you. This callicarpa (also know as beautyberry) has these tiny flowers that are opening up along most of the stalks. We are waiting for fall when these little flowers hopefully will turn into bright purple fruit.

Let’s move on to the perennials in the yard now.

A view of our perennial garden from our patio

Another bright yellow flower we enjoy is coreopsis.

The hosta are almost finished blooming but here’s one to show you.

We have a couple varieties of agastache. They are a lovely purple color and are favorites of the hummingbirds and butterflies.

Blue Fortune Agastache

Last but not least is our pink loosestrife.

We hope you enjoyed checking out our what is blooming in our yard right now.

We are joining Arty, Jakey and Rosy for this weeks Flower Friday. Stop by their blog to see what other blogs are doing. They probably have flowers of their own to show.
