One afternoon I noticed a truck pulling up in front of the house and hurried to meet the driver at the door before he could ring the bell. That way we could avoid all the dogs calling out a greeting at the top of their lungs. He handed me a Chewy box which confused me, as I hadn't ordered anything. At least I didn't remember ordering anything. The WOW team at Chewy had sent us a couple of new items to try out. They know our pack pretty well by now and had selected two items that they knew we could use, a probiotic and some glucosamine chews.
It comes in individual packs and each pack has enough for a couple dogs to share. In Noah's case, when his colitis is flaring up, he gets an entire pack to himself.
Next we tried the Hip and Joint soft chews.Several of the Porties have some arthritis. Tess has deformities in her legs that can cause aches and pains and Fudge has severe joint problems from his stroke. They all get various supplements daily to help with the pain. These chews will be an enjoyable way to give them some extra pain relief.
The chews are much larger than I expected and also a bit chewier as I watched them chew for longer than usual.
Chewy for thinking of us when they needed testers.
A couple days later the doorbell rang and there was a florist's box waiting for me. Inside was a birthday card and these gorgeous roses.
Chewy, also. I was blown away by their thoughtful gift.
Meanwhile, our front yard was under attack by the utility company who in their infinite wisdom decided that February was a good time to lay new gas lines. February, when everyone is running their furnaces, not July when the gas isn't being used as much. February when the ground is getting muddy from rain and melted snow, not July when the ground is dry from drought.
Now we live with mud until the weather allows for some grass to grow in.
Chewy sent our review items for the month and we'll get to those in the next few days.
Then the big day came, Fudge's birthday, aka Valentine's Day. Would you believe that the WOW team once again thought of us and sent a box of cookies and candies to the humans in the house. Man, I'm starting to feel spoiled.
Then, as if that wasn't more than enough, Chewy came thru again and sent Mr Fudge a birthday gift.
I guess it's only appropriate that yesterday was Chinese New Year and 2018 is the year of the dog. Of course, at our house, every year is the year of the dog, but now it's official.
