It's About Time

Fudge tells me that I've waited much too long to post a review of this month's Chewy box. It came a couple weeks ago  when my hand was in a brace and I couldn't handle the camera and a bunch of excited dogs at the same time. The box has been sitting on a stool in the kitchen all that time and the dogs all knew there was something very special inside, so finally yesterday we decided to check it out.
First, as per Chewy's wishes, we want to inform everyone that we received these products for free in exchange for our honest review. We were not coached and the opinions expressed are our very own. Now, on with the good stuff.

Long ago we bought a Furminator for Tsar. It was necessary for that thick Sibe/Chow coat of his. It worked great for pulling out the dead undercoat that he liked to leave around the house.
This month Miss Sydney offered us a new product by Furminator, a reversible brush. There is a pin brush on one side and a bristle brush on the other. This seemed like a good idea since Sebastian is leaving little balls of fluffy hair all over the place  now that spring has arrived.
The orignal Furminator didn't work for the Porties because they're single coated but Sebastian, Sydney and Mac all have double coats and the two little girls shed year round. We took Sebastian and Mac onto the porch to see how the new brush would work for them. Mac is suspicious of anything new so she stood off to one side to see what was going to happen to Sebastian.
Rob brushed Sebastian with the pin brush and he loved it.
 Mac was curious now because Sebastian seemed to be having a good time and she didn't want to miss out on anything.
 Finally Mac wanted to try it, too. Rob used the bristle side on her and she liked it.
 Sebastian wanted more and tried to climb into Rob's lap to get some more brushing. I'm  pretty sure he would have stayed there all day.
 Finally I gathered a few more volunteers to try out the other item in the box. They lined up in anticipation. These received an overwhelming paws up. They were Zukes in duck  flavor. We love Zukes in this house. The dogs love the taste and I love the size, perfect for training. This was the first time we'd tried the duck flavor but that's the best for Noah and Fudge, so everyone was happy.
If you haven't tried Zukes yet, you're missing a wonderful product that you and your dog will both appreciate.
 Sebastian says this was the best Chewy box ever.

Sebastian, I wish I liked being brushed as much as you do. I get wiggly, but I have such a thick, always shedding, undercoat...Any tips? Maybe those Zukes things...

I wish we got Chewy over here!

We're a bit skeptical about that brush. We don't really like to be brushed, or groomed. But those duck treats sound like it might be worth a brush or two.

We will be reviewing the brush, too, from both a cat and dog perspective. Won't give too much away, but the species preferred different sides of the brush. Those treats look super yummy.

Love the pictures of Sebastian demanding more brushing from his person. Mac's jealousy is funny, too. Chewy alwasy sends great boxes to everyone!

We knew Sebastian would love that pin brush. We have that same brush and it is good, but a bit smaller than Mom would like. we have another gold pin brush that also works really well.

Now we are off to tell Mom about those Zukes - seems like a long time since we have tasted anything ducky.

I have heard wonderful things about the Furminator. Never considered there being double coats. Thanks for the insight.

Sure looks like they had a blast getting groomed! We also got the brush, but haven't had a chance to try it out just yet...
