Photobucket

Treats from Three Dog Bakery, woo hoo!!
Photobucket

Mom found out about Three Dog Bakery through Jemma's post about the bakery. Mom learned that all treats made at the Bakery are all natural, made with premium ingredients, such as wheat flour, honey, oatmeal, peanuts....you get the picture. Best part is is that they don't use any artificial ingredients or chemicals.

On the advice of Jemma, Mom ordered for us
Photobucket
Peanut butter, vanilla and carob cookies, all in a delightfully small size for us itty bitty pooches!

And...
Photobucket
Carrots!!! We just loooove carrots, and guess what....that's the only ingredient....it's all pure, dehydrated carrots!

There are so many other delicious nummy treats at the Bakery, such as apple and oatmeal cookies, dried apples, dried bananas, cheese treats, (oh dog, I am drooling right now), but we need to finish these first before we can try the others.

Mom, really, you've just got to stop spoiling us.......just kidding!! Keep up on the spoiling!

(Note from Mom, I did not receive these treats for free, to review them. I am passionate about the quality of food and treats that Chewy & Lilibell eat, and when I find a great product, I am always eager to share the information and product with others!)

We Love Freshpet Vital!!

Mom is very conscious about the quality of food we eat, making sure that our food contains the right nutrients and protein. She doesn't like us to eat anything that is loaded with chemicals or yucky fillers. She became very intrigued about this new kind of food called Vital, made by Freshpet, after she read about how well Tessa liked it. Mom went on the Vital website and read up on the ingredients it contained. Tessa mentioned that Freshpet has a blog and they were looking for pups to try out their food for free. All you need to do is leave a comment and then be willing to blog about it if you are selected. Well, we made sure that Mom left a comment for us and before we knew it, she came in the door Friday carrying a big white box!

Mom, is all this for me??

What? What do you mean I need to share with Lilibell????
Photobucket

Okay, I guess I'll share, but let me take a little taste first, just to make sure it's okay for Lilibell to eat, BOL!
Photobucket

Even Dad tried it!!
Photobucket

Which one do we want to try first?
Photobucket

There's so many nummy choices....there's salmon and ocean whitefish recipe, turkey recipe, bison and beef recipe, and chicken, beef salmon and egg recipe! Okay, I think we'll go with the turkey recipe.
Photobucket
Look at these nummy ingrediants:
Turkey, turkey liver, spinach, blueberries, pomegranate, cranberries, carrageenan, broccoli
What makes Freshpet Vital good food for us, is that it is made with high quality quality meats and poultry, it's all natural without the use of preservatives or yucky chemicals, and it's 100% completely balanced!!

Okay Mom, quit the talking and get our suppers! We want to try Vital!!
Photobucket

Hurry up Mom, hurry up, hurry up!

Inquiring Minds Want to Know....

What did Chewy do on Easter and why was he home alone?

Things went wrong right from the beginning when we stepped out of the car at Bruni's. It was my fault, I should've had him on his Gentle Leader (yes, he is on a Gentle Leader now because he pulls so bad when out for walks), but instead had used his regular leash attached to his Easter vest, which was big for him in the first place. As soon as he got out of the truck with Steve, he pulled so bad that he came right out of his vest! Got the vest back on him and proceeded to walk into the backyard where Easter dinner was to be served and a bunch of people were waiting for us.

Unbeknownst to us, Steve's cousin Jen had decided to take their dog, Casey (a yellow lab), that day. As you may or may not know, Chewy does not play well at all with other dogs. The only dog he plays well with is his girlfriend Sally Jean. Otherwise, he will bark his head off at a strange dog and try to attack them. Well, we got into the backyard, Chewy saw Casey, and all hell let loose. Chewy ran straight to Casey, barking at her and trying to attack her. I somehow managed to get his Gentle Leader on him and walked him around the yard in the hope that it would calm him down. Chewy was still highly agitated and when Steve told me he was going home to change into something cooler, I told him to bring Chewy home. I knew that if Chewy stayed there the day, it would not have been relaxing for anyone....he would just keep on trying to attack Casey, he would be agitated, we would constantly have to keep our eyes on him and on a leash (Bruni's yard is fenced in for the most part and I was planning on letting Chewy just roam free, he is very good about listening to me). He would've also made Lilibell into a little devil....she follows everything he does! If she is alone, she will not bark at strange dogs, but if Chewy is around, she follows right in his lead and will start barking her head off. In fact, after Chewy left, Lilibell never let out another peep for the rest of the day, even when she was near Casey.

It broke my heart and I felt extremely guilty about sending him home, but it was the best decision for everyone there that day. I just could not wait to get home that day to smother him in kisses to ease my guilt for leaving him behind.

And that is the story of Chewy.....Home Alone.

(Pee Ess, there are no pictures of Chewy in his Easter outfit, because he had to be sent home....he was a very, VERY, bad boy that day. Mom and I missed him terribly.)

Has Anybuddy Seen Our Ark?

It started raining Sunday night, and it rained, and rained and rained some more. Tuesday it was still raining! And that's when the state we live in started to get into trouble.....from floods! Water, water everywhere! There are some rivers in the state of Rhode Island that flood when we get a lot of rain, it's almost normal routine around here. But the rain we got early this week was so bad that the rivers really flooded.....whole neighborhoods, a major interstate highway, and a big mall....all were under water!

Thank dogness the neighborhood we live in is up high and there are no rivers near our house, but about a mile down the street there's the Woonasquatucket River that runs right under the main street, Atwells Avenue, we live off of. And boy did that river flood!! It was like a river running right down the middle of Atwells!

You have to understand furfriends, it's been a very long time, like 200 years, that Rhode Islanders have seen flooding such as this. And this flood has caused so many problems and woes for our little state. The city we live in, Providence, got almost 10" of rain since Sunday night!!

This is down the street from our house

And this one is of a shopping plaza that's in that section

This is the Woonasquatucket River that runs underneath Atwells.

Dad took a video of the flood, the rushing in the background is the sound of the water rushing down the street!



Thankfully, we are all safe and dry and the weather has rewarded us for what we went through, it's supposed to be in the 70's this weekend!
