Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We know some of you don’t really like the snow but for us there’s no place we would rather be.

I like looking for buried treasure.

Here is a little video of some of our snow play fun.

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

I love pouncing on Millie while she has her head under the snow.

After I do a fly by I land and relaunch.

Get ready Millie…

…here I come again!

We just love playing in the snow and are happy that today we got a lot more of it. If Mother Nature brings you snow we say to embrace it and have fun playing in it.

Hi everyone it’s Cindy here. This past Sunday evening Charlie and I headed out to Webster Park to see what the sunset would be like. It wasn’t as beautiful as we had hoped but here is a little of what we saw.

I love the panorama setting on my new camera

Hi everyone! It’s Cindy here. Late last week we were lucky to have some Painted Lady butterflies migrating through our yard. They enjoyed a stop over for some refueling. We first found them enjoying the sedum.

The underside of a Painted Lady Butterfly is not as colorful as the upperside.

They really loved the sedum…

… and often had to share them with other insects like this honey bee

Here is a little video of the action on the sedum.

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

The next day when we came outside there were many more Painted Ladies and this time most of them were on the Blue Fortune Agastache.

At one point we counted about a dozen butterflies on the agastache

The butterflies worked every angle of the flowers

This would make a good Tongue Out Tuesday picture

The upperside is so beautiful

Here a video of the action on the agastache.

We also found the Painted Ladies on our hydrangea.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the Painted Lady invasion we had in our yard recently.

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?

“True Acre Foods Medium Original Baked Biscuits are baked with care for the crunchy texture and savory flavor dogs love. Plus, they’re fortified with 12 vitamins and minerals for even more goodness in every bite. 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:

  • Crunchy dog treat biscuits are baked with care for the texture dogs love.

Those biscuits look tasty

They are the perfect size to fit into our Kongs too.

The waiting is the hardest part.
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.

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.
