Hi Everybody it’s Millie here!

As you heard we had a ton of snow this past week. I love to bury my head in the snow and sniff around under there.

Since I’m a black dog in a snow storm no editing was needed for these pictures.

Today we would also like to remember one of the hosts of the Black & White Sunday blog hop. The sweet Sugar the Golden Retriever who took her journey to the Rainbow Bridge this week. She was loved by all who met her and will be sadly missed.

I’m participating in the Black & White Sunday blog hop.

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.

Hi everyone, it’s Millie & Walter here!

It’s time for this month’s Chewy.com review. This month we are reviewing Newman’s Own Organics Lamb Digestive Care Snack Sticks Dog Treats. There are other flavors available too.

Newmans Own Digestive Snack Sticks - Front Back of bag

Mom thought these would be good for us. According to the Chewy website “Each stick has tons of fiber from pumpkin, which is a natural digestive aid. These treats are also loaded with probiotics that support healthy digestion.” They are also made in the USA and we know how important that is to all of us.

The sticks are broken in a wide variety of sizes.

I’ll take one of the big ones mom

The sticks are broken in a wide variety of sizes and our mom wanted to break them up even smaller.

Those are kind of small pieces mom.

We'll be happy to take anything you want to give us though.

Finally our mom put one for each of us on the floor and, as usual, made us wait before we could eat them.

We're waiting!!!

She finally said, “Okay!” and we went to work. Check out our video to see how the taste test went.

I might have been unsure at first but now I love them. Hey wait your turn Millie!

These are great!

These are great!

These treats are even soft enough that you can break them into smaller pieces if you really want to but we don’t recommend it. Why do our pawrents always want to break our treats in half?

As you can see in the end we both really loved these treats! We have to give these treats 8 paws up (because that is all the paws we have) and we recommend them to all our friends.

Hi everyone, it’s Millie & Walter here!

It’s time for this month’s Chewy.com review. This month we are reviewing Merrick Power Bites Real Beef Recipe. There are other flavors available too.

We eat Merrick Texas Beef kibble every day and we have always loved anything Merrick makes (so far). These treats are grain free, gluten free and made in the USA. There are lots of other good things crammed into those tiny treats too. You can read the label or hop over to Chewy.com with the links above to read all about it.

Those sure are tiny treats. I sure hope we get more than one little piece.

Those treats are smaller than our mom’s thumbnail!

Please hurry with the treats. I don't think I can hold out much longer.

We sucked those tiny treats up so fast our mom couldn’t get any pictures. She was more generous the second time (we got two!). We also did a short video of the box opening and our second sampling of the treats.

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

These treats are great for training as they are so tiny. They are even soft enough that you can break them in half if you really want to but we don’t recommend it because they are so small already. Why do our pawrents always want to break our treats in half?

As you can see we both really loved these treats! We have to give these treats 8 paws up (because that is all the paws we have) and we recommend them to all our friends.

Hey mom, I'm bored!

Hey mom, I’m bored!

The weather has been terrible for getting outside to play in our yard. This is the face I give my mom or dad when I want them to do something for me. Do you think they can make it snow so we can play in the white fluffy stuff?

We are participating in the Black & White Sunday blog hop.

Hi everyone, it’s Millie & Walter here!

It’s time for this month’s Chewy.com review. This month we are reviewing Wellness WellBites Grain-Free Lamb & Salmon Recipe. There are other flavors available too.

There is all kinds of good stuff in these treats and lots of things they don’t have such as being grain free with no artificial flavors. You can click on the image above to read more or click the link above.

You can see in the above picture that they are even scored so your peeps can break them into smaller pieces. We don’t really recommend that though.

Come on mom! We've waited long enough!

Just a little more waiting until the "Okay"!

Now on to the video to show you what we thought of these treats.

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

Did you see that? Walter refused to eat them!! As you can hear our dad say in the video, “That is a first”. We don’t know what it is about them he didn’t care for because we have tried other treats with those ingredients and we have tried other Wellness treats and loved them.

Not to worry though because Millie really loved these treats! We have to give these treats 4 paws up (because that is all the paws Millie has) and we recommend them to all our friends.

This month we are joining Oz the Terrier and Sugar the Golden Retriever for their Chewy.com blog hop.

One of the reasons we chose this treat was because this month Chewy.com is teaming up with WellPet for the “Give the Gift of Wellness” campaign. For every Wellness product purchased through Chewy.com from December 5th – 19th they donated a meal to a local rescue. In addition, for every Wellness Product selected by Chewy reviewers they will donate 5 cases! So even though Walter didn’t like them we helped homeless pets by doing this review and Millie is happy to have the whole bag all to herself!
