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.”

Some of the key benefits of these treats are:

  • 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.
  • The grain-free recipe makes this an ideal treat for the dog with allergies or food sensitivities.
  • 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.

Hi everyone it’s Cindy here. Today I’m joining the Hookin on Hump Day blog hop to tell you about a new afghan I made.

Grenoble Matelasse Afghan

This is a project that I’ve worked on, off and on, for the past couple of years and I decided at the beginning of the summer that it was time to finish it. The design is from a collection from Priscilla’s Crochet. She can be found on her website or on Ravelry. This afghan is from her Matelassè collection and is the same collection that I used for the baby blanket I made last year.

The afghan is made up of octagon and square motifs.

The pattern is called Grenoble and consists of octagon motifs that are joined together using a flat braid join. In between the octagons the spaces are filled in with square motifs.

This afghan has a nice texture

I wanted this afghan to be big enough to cover Charlie so I finished it using 9 x 6 octagon motifs. The final size is about 72″ x 50″. I used Caron Simply Soft in Dark Sage and it took 14 skeins to complete it at this size.

Even the back is attractive.

One of the things I like about this pattern is that the back looks nice too. The textured style uses a lot of front post and back post stitches which creates a very dense fabric. It makes an afghan that is very warm and cozy to lay under.

Close up of the back of the afghan

The pattern is well done and easy to follow but I found reading the words to remind me what to do for each round became tedious. To make it easier I made a chart of the pattern for the octagon. It was much easier to figure out where I left off if I put the project down for a little while after I created the chart.

The edge is finished with a very simple stitch pattern

After all the octagons and squares were put together the edge is finished with a simple stitch pattern that mimics the style of the flat braid join used to put all the blocks together. I’m happy with the way the afghan turned out and like all the Matelasse patterns I’ve done so far. I wish you could see the color in real life because the pictures don’t really do it justice.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie here. First Walter wants me to thank everyone for his birthday wishes. Okay now that that is over I can tell you what I’m thankful for.

I’m thankful for my forever family

That’s right! Today is my 6th Gotcha Day! I don’t think I could really say just how happy I am to be with my pawrents and Walter. I was a little scared that first day I was here but I haven’t felt that way ever since. My pawrents would tell you that I am quite the mischief maker and have been from day one.

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

That is one of my pawrents favorite video of me. I just couldn’t figure out why that dog wouldn’t play with me.

I love unmaking the bed

I’ve unmade the beds in our house so many times and wrecked so many sheets now that my pawrents block off the second bedroom and don’t let me upstairs by myself. When we are up on the bed we are usually close together.

You can often find Walter and I snuggling on the bed

One of my favorite things to do is hang out in our yard but when I can’t be out there I like to watch the activity from my favorite window.

This windowsill comes in handy when you get tired.

There is nothing better than laying under my favorite tree

As you can tell I feel that I live a charmed life and am so grateful for my forever home. Unfortunately the rescue Walter and I came from is no longer in business but I am so glad they were around to help me get here.

My best guy sent me this lovely card

I have to give a shout out to my boyfriend Fenris and his family for sending me this lovely card. Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop. You should stop by his blog to see what others are thankful for.

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. Today is a big day for me. I turn 6 and my mom told me that means I’m officially a senior citizen.

So I have a little grey on my muzzle. Does that make me a senior citizen?

I had a little grey on my chin when I was a little pup too.

I sure am a lucky pup to have landed in my great home.

I have the best back yard to hang out in

I have the best sister to play with.

There is nothing better than wrestling in the snow

Sometimes we take a break and just hang out together

My pawrents spend lots of money on toys just for me.

I love to steal the used milk cartons out of the recycling bin

My favorite is the freeze dried liver container

I get some real toys too but I’m not a picky guy and I’m happy with whatever I can chew on or play with.

I love when my dad plays fetch with me

I love to snuggle with my pawrents

The first few months of my life weren’t very good but since I found my forever home life couldn’t be any better. I also have a great girlfriend (and her family) that sent me this beautiful card.

Thanks Tuiren and family

I sure don’t feel like a senior citizen and can still jump straight up from a stand still to look my mom in the eyes. Like they say you are as young as you feel.

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

We both loved Stella & Chewy’s Beef Wild Weenies and give them 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. We’re sorry we’ve been MIA this past week but our mom, aka our secretary, was away for a few days visiting her sister and family in Michigan. Rest assured that we’ve been reading all your blogs even if we didn’t have time to leave a comment.

We know that our last post was to remember Blogville’s former Mayor Miss Madi. It was sad to learn about her crossing the Rainbow Bridge but today we are here to celebrate her life and have some fun.

Come Laugh With Us

There are two things Angel Madi liked a lot. The first is the color red and the other thing is her boxes. A few years ago there was a blog party to celebrate Madi’s love for boxes.

A Soft & Crafty box for Madi

We just know she would have loved this box. It would make a perfect condo for any kitty. With some holes cut for windows and if you tipped it on its side you could open one of the flaps for a great front porch.

There is one thing about Madi (well most cats for that matter) that us dogs are very jealous of and that is their ability to prowl around the kitchen counters. Us pups usually get scolded if we even think of putting our paws up there but kitties all over get to explore all they want up there. One of our favorite pictures of Madi is of her jumping down from the kitchen counter.

Is she doing a front paw stand?

It looks like she is standing on her front paws or doing a head stand. One of the things we love the most about this picture is that you get to see those cute spots on her back legs.

We know that two posts in a row about our friend Angel Madi might seem a bit much but she and her mom and dad are very special to all of us. We’re so glad that her mom is going to keep blogging and will include Angel Madi whenever she feels the need to pop by.

Please stop by the blog hop hosted by our friends at Living Laughing Barking in our Backyard to see all the tributes to our special kitty friend Angel Madi.

A Tribute to Madi

It’s with heavy heart that we share the news that all of Blogville’s BFFF (Best Feline Friend Forever) Madison D. Cat has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

She was the life of many a Blogville party and taught us all how to dance (that girl could twerk like no other). She fought a courageous battle with kidney disease with the help of her pawrents this past year and lived to 16 ½ years old.

You can visit her blog here to leave some kind words to her pawrents.

We will miss you dear Madi and hold you in our hearts forever. Our paws are crossed for you pawrents as they cope with this sad time.
