Hi everyone! It’s Cindy here again. Last week I showed you some of the smaller creatures that enjoy our sedum. Today I’ll show you some butterflies that also enjoy the nectar from the sedum.

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

This eastern tiger swallowtail is looking quite beat up at this point in the summer.

Giant Swallowtail Butterfly

It’s difficult to photograph the giant swallowtail as they are in constant motion. You will see what I mean in the video below.

Monarch Butterfly

This monarch butterfly had to share this sedum with some other insects.

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

The butterflies have also been enjoying the Joe Pye weed, which isn’t a weed in our garden but a perennial that we planted (there is a native variety that does grow as a weed in our area too).

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the butterflies hanging around our yard.

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

This is a big box.
What’s inside?

Keep a box in your cupboard for anytime your dog deserves a flavorful reward, or anytime you want to get his tail wagging for a delicious snack. They’re great for medium dog breeds, or you can break them up for smaller pups.”

Some of the key benefits of these treats are:

I try not to look because it’s too tempting.

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

That was tasty. I would love to have another one mom.

These are nice and crunchy.

Overall we just loved these treats and give them treats 8 paws up. Our mom says this box is quite a bargain and will last us a very long time.

We are sorry to say that this will be our last review for Chewy.com as they have discontinued the Influencer Program. It’s been fun trying new treats and toys every month for the past few years and we are sorry to see it ending. Thanks Chewy for all the fun we’ve had doing the reviews.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie here. Many of you have been showing us pictures of spring popping up all around your homes but around here we still have snow on the ground.

What’s under there?
I don’t know but I’m going to try to find out.

Walter and I love to wander around our yard and try to sniff out what is under the snow.

There might be a mouse under here.

One of my favorite things to do in the snow is make donuts. What’s a snow donut you ask? Let me show you.

I love making snow donuts.

Do you see that circle in the above picture? I make it kind of like how a Nascar racer does when he wins a race and spins in a circle on the track.

Watch this video to see how it is all done.

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

That was great!

Look what you did to the snow!
You should give it a try.

I can smell Millie all over the snow.

It may be difficult to see but here is what was left after I made my snow donut.

Did an alien make this circle in the snow?

One of the important things is to make sure you leave a little pile of snow in the middle of the snow ring. Mom and dad say making a snow donut is kind of like taking a snow bath. I let the snow work down into my coat and then shake it out when I’m done. Do any of you want to come up here and let me show you how to make a snow donut? Come on…it will be a blast!

Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here! It’s time for our February Chewy.com review.

What’s in the box this month?
I don’t know but it smells good.

This month we are reviewing WHIMZEES Brushzees 30 Day Dental Dog Treats in the large size.

WHIMZEES Brushzees 30 Day Dental Dog Treats

There are other sizes of treats available too.

Aren’t those tooth heads cute?

According to Chewy.com:

“Veterinarians believe in brushing every day, and we’ve made it easy with our new 30 day packs! Brushzees are made with ridges and grooves that can help reduce plaque, tartar, and bad breath, and feature the patented Pawfect Paw Pad developed to help paws grip the chew more easily. Brushzees are limited ingredient, GMO-free, gluten-free, grain-free, vegetarian, and completely without artificial flavors or colors. A Brushzee a day keeps the doggie dentist away!”

Some of the key benefits of these treats are:

  • Long-lasting treat is designed to keep your pup busy chewing!
  • Effective in helping to remove plaque, tartar and bad breath while also satisfying that natural urge to chew.
  • One month supply! Feed your dog one a day to support healthy teeth, breath and gums.
  • Limited ingredient chews are gluten-free, grain-free, GMO-free and have no articifial colors, flavors or preservatives.
  • Uniquely-shaped chews are crafted with grooves to help clean the smaller spaces between dogs’ teeth, and ridges to help ensure proper blood flow through the gums.

The box says there is a one month supply.

That one month supply is for one dog though.

We always have to wait before we start.

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

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

Well that sure took a long time. In reality it took Walter about 12 minutes and Millie about 15 minutes to finish the treats.

This is a big treat.

I like how easy these are to hold.

You really have to work hard to chew these.

Walter’s right. This is quite a work out.

Just a few crumbs to finish up.

I see Walter hovering behind me.

Millie’s treat must be bigger than mine.
No, I just like to savor mine.

Overall we just loved these treats and as a bonus they are good for your teeth. We give these dental treats 8 paws up.

Now here is a note from our mom:

Hi everyone. It’s mom Cindy here. I was very impressed with how long it took the pups to eat these treats. Their teeth and jaws really got a work out from chewing them. The only issue I have is that they are a bit pricey. A box of 30 in the large size costs $54.99 which is $1.83 each (smaller sizes are cheaper). To give these as a daily treat for both of the pups would cost over $100 per month.

Currently we give the dogs a Pedigree Dentistix (which are also available at Chewy.com) every day and they are more cost effective. I do think that the Whimzees would do a better job at keeping their teeth clean than Dentistix so I could see giving them a Whimzee every few days. If you are lucky to have a smaller dog then these would be a good option for you.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here! It’s time for our January Chewy.com review.

No box today. We got a bag in the mail.

Walter is still playing with the shipping bag but I found the treats for our review.

This bag seems lighter than before.

This month we are reviewing CANIDAE Grain-Free PURE Heaven Biscuits with Bison & Butternut Squash Crunchy Dog Treats.

CANIDAE Grain-Free PURE Heaven Biscuits with Bison & Butternut Squash

There are other flavors of treats available too.

According to Chewy.com:

“Made with bison and butternut squash, this recipe also includes wholesome cumin, sesame oil and ginger—lending just the right flavor and nutrition that your dog craves. A must for quality time with your buddy, these crunchy treats feature an easy-snap texture that are perfect for training and rewarding. And they also help clean his teeth!”

Some of the key benefits of these treats are:

  • Made with recognizable ingredients like bison and butternut squash.
  • Healthy, grain-free treats are great tasting for a healthy reward.
  • Crunchy, easy-snap texture is great for rewarding and helps clean teeth.
  • Plenty to go around with over 30 treats in every bag.
  • Made in the USA by the family-owned company with uncompromising quality.

Those are a nice size treat.

I hope mom doesn’t break them in half.

This is always the hardest part.

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

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

We always get a second tasting.

These are great biscuits.

I hope I get to eat all of this one this time.

That Walter is such a thief! He stole part of my biscuit again. Just because I like to break mine in smaller pieces doesn’t mean you get to have some of it.

Maybe if we get just a half piece each Walter won’t steal any of mine!

I get to go first this time.

I really love these treats.

This time there was no stealing. As you can see we both loved these treats.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie here. As you might remember last Friday we were waiting for Winter Storm Harper to hit our area and boy did it ever!

I wonder what is hiding under the snow.

The snow started around mid day on Saturday and didn’t stop until this afternoon! The first 24 hours were from the storm and the last 24 hours were from lake effect. My mom estimates that we got around 24 to 30 inches (61 to 76 cm).

I like going off trail!

It was quite windy so there are some areas that are up to our mom’s thigh. Of course she is only 5’2″ tall but that is still deep.

I think I hit a dead end.

Walter and I haven’t been able to play in the snow much because the other factor to this storm has been the cold temps we’ve been having. Our high temps haven’t gotten over 15° F (-10° C) with wind chills below zero and late at night or early morning it’s been in the single digits.

That snow is deep and it’s cold out here!

Here is a little action video of us today. Don’t be fooled by the brief amount of sunshine you see. It only lasted for a few seconds and it was snowing right through it (that’s the fun of lake effect snow).

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

On those really cold mornings our mom puts booties on us so we can be out long enough to get all our “business” taken care of without hurting our paws. You should see how many layers of clothes our mom has to wear. BOL!

Patched together panorama of our back yard.
(click on the image to see a bigger version).

We were getting spoiled with a fairly warm and snow free winter for the past month but Mother Nature is making up for lost time.

No birds are bathing here.

Some of this snow should disappear in a few days as the forecast for Wednesday calls for temperatures in the low 40’s F (5°C) and some rain.

Well I just wanted to let you know that we survived the storm and can’t wait for the temps to warm up a little so we can get out and have fun in the snow. Stay warm friends.
