A Little Bragging

I just want to share a couple items I made before Christmas. They were gifts, so I didn't post them just in case. Here's a little reindeer for a young lady.
This foxy fox was for another little lady.
This was for the foxy mama of the above  little lady.
And here's a French Bulldog for someone owned by and loved by that breed.
Ok, brag over.

Getting In Shape #Chewy Influencer

Our Chewy reviews this month are going to be a little different than usual. Generally I order items that everyone can try and whether it's food or treats, each dog gets to sample them. This month I ordered items specifically for individuals. The first item we're reviewing is for Sydney.
Syd has always been an active dog. She loves to run, jump and dig. Especially dig! She's always stayed slim and muscular, but recently I've noticed that Syd has been gaining weight. She not fat, but doesn't look slim and muscular.
 She's six years old now, the age where thyroid symptoms often show up, so she'll soon visit Dr B for a blood test. In the meantime I cut back the amount of food she gets at each meal, but I haven't noticed any change in her waistline.
When Chewy sent their list of review items I was pleased to see Natural Balance Original Ultra Whole Body Health Reduced Calorie Chicken, Salmon & Duck Formula Canned Dog Food. It seemed like a perfect food for Syd to try. It's formulated for adult dogs, with fewer calories. It's made with multiple animal protein sources and added vitamin A and B12.
Syd is a picky eater, so she gets a little topper on her kibble to entice her to eat. This food mixed into her kibble received her approval and she doesn't know she's getting diet food. She just thinks it tastes good.
I'll watch her diet, encourage her activities and possibly treat her thyroid. Somehow we'll get Syd back into top condition.
  Chewy sent us a case of Natural Balance Reduced Calorie food at no cost to us in exchange for our honest review. This morning I gave Fudge a spoonful mixed with his kibble and from the way he attacked it, I'd say this food is a winner.

Running Late

Hi Everybody,
We're still here even though our secretary hasn't been keeping our blog up to date. Still, we didn't want to skip an important event.
Last Saturday, the 5th, was Sebastian's eighth birthday. Of course we helped him celebrate.
Our New Year resolution is to blog more often. So far we haven't done a very good job, but we're working at it.
Your pal, Fudge

Good Wishes For 2019

Hi Everybody,
Last night Mom and Dad had some of this.
And they had some of this.
Today we'll get those little shrimpy tails mixed with our dinner.

It was a quiet night without a lot of boomers and we're all happy about that.

We all want to wish all of you a safe, peaceful and healthy new year.
Your pal, Fudge and all the rest of the pack

Beyond Good #Chewy Influencer

Hi everybody,
Well, we're coming down to the end of 2018. It was one of those mixed years, some good stuff happened and some bad stuff happened. It was like most years, I guess.

It's ending with some really cold weather so we're spending lots of time napping, but we're all wide awake at dinner time. Over the holidays Mom has been trying to give us a nice variety of flavors.
Last night was a good example. She made a big pot of rice cooked with pumpkin. We each got some on our kibbles, but then she added something new.
Chewy sent us a bunch of Purina Beyond Wild Prey-Inspired Turkey, Liver & Duck Recipe Canned Dog Food.  It's made with real turkey, chicken, duck and chicken liver plus lots of vitamins and minerals that make Mom happy. No artificial colors, flavoring or preservatives and no poultry by-product meal.
We each had a nice big scoop of Beyond mixed with the kibble and rice. This was a great cold day dinner and every bowl was licked clean.
The Purina peeps make lots of different dog foods, but we really like this one. Mom likes that it stays easy to scoop even after being refrigerated. We like that it tastes wonderful.

Beyond Wild comes in beef, liver and lamb flavor, too. There are also a number of other Beyond flavors available.  So there's something for every taste. That's important because nobody wants to eat the same thing every day.

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve. I wonder what Mom has in store for our dinner then.

Chewy sent us this Beyond Wild Canned Dog Food at no cost to us in exchange for our honest opinions. Try some! 

Your pal, Fudge

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Hi Everybody,
It won't be long now. Mom spent Saturday in the kitchen and so did we.
Then Dad came home from the store and look what he had. Animal crackers and guess who they're for...  us, we're the animals. He brought some millet for the birdies, too.
Tomorrow Dad is making lasagna for Mom so she said we could have pasta and sardines for Christmas dinner.  I think I'm drooling already.

So now we just settle down to wait for Santa.
Merry Christmas from Fudge, Tess, Lola, Noah, Norma Jean, Sebastian, Sydney, Mackey and the birds Norris, Winter and Summer.
