Wondering Wednesday

Mom, Lightning is wondering what the date is today?

February 22?????
How can that be?  It is 77 degrees out here!!!

Shouldn't we be sitting in some snow instead of this semi-green grass?  Mother Nature sure is getting silly.  But at least there is one good thing about it - we get to be outside a LOT!!!

A Special Sunday Selfie

We are very busy here having lots of fun with all of our company, but we couldn't let this special day slip by without giving our newest kitty pal a great big WOO welcome.

Teddy K is the new little furpal who has joined Angel Sammy's Mom and Dad.  He is just so cute and adorable. We are sure he is going to bring us many smiles and great fun at his new home.  

Welcome to our parlor, Teddy. We don't get to play in this room, but it is a great place to welcome new friends.

And the family room hearth is a great location for a good Sunday Selfie/Ussie to extend our great big WELCOME TO BLOGVILLE, TEDDY!!!

Pee Ess:  We hope to be back to regular programming by Tuesday or Wednesday.

Friday Fast One

It IS February, right?  And we do live in Kansas, right?

Then why was it 72 degrees here yesterday and likely to be in the 70s for the next couple of days???

We really want some snow, but Lightning told Misty that the warm weather might mean this big machine behind us gets put to work for dinner. 

Yes, Misty.  This is called a GRILL, and Mom uses it to cook STEAK and BURGERS and other tasty foodables.  You are going to love it.

OK, if you say so, Lightning, I think I am going to like steak and burgers.  Now let's go do zoomies in the yard and run the fence line with Dodger and Oliver.

Happy weekend, everyone. Our human brother and family are coming in tonight for the long weekend.  Mom says we had K-oss Tuesday; she had CHAOS for the past two days trying to get Dad's new laptop up and running; and with the arrival of our Texas family, there will be total CHAOS all weekend when all six grands and the eight humans gather at our place all day and night.  Please forgive us if we are MIA for a few days.  Mom asked to thank all of you for the birthday wishes.

Thankful Tasty Thursday #ChewyInfluencer

Usually we do our reviews on Tasty Tuesdays, but we were so busy with K-oss this week that we couldn't get it done. And we have company coming in for the weekend. So today we are Thankful to do our taste test for our February product.

This month we received a package of Acana Mackerel and Greens dog treats.  Holy Mackerel - did we really see that there is MACKEREL in that bag????  We love all things fish, most especially mackerel, but Mom doesn't like the smell of mackerel in the can.  We only get it once in a while. So you can imagine how excited we were to try these treats.

From the website:


Diet-sensitive dogs have met their match with limited ingredient ACANA Mackerel & Greens Singles Formula Dog Treats. These nourishing bites are made with fresh wild-caught New England mackerel as the single, easily digestible animal protein that’s full of omega-3. It’s gently freeze-dried to preserve the natural flavors and nutrients and combined with Kentucky spinach and sun-dried sarsaparilla root. Spinach provides a rich source of fiber, and sarsaparilla root supports healthy digestion for a nutritious treat that’s easy for the most sensitive pet to digest.
Key Benefits:

  • Fresh, wild-caught, New England mackerel is the single animal protein, paired with spinach
  • Limited ingredients for sensitive pups
  • Gently freeze-dried to retain vital nutrients and preserve natural flavors and nutrients
  •  Spinach provides a rich source of fiber, and sarsaparilla root supports healthy digestion. Meanwhile, mackerel is full of omega-3 to support skin and coat.
  • Formula-matched to ACANA Singles dry foods

  • We read some of the reviews by customers who had already purchased these treats at, and it appears that dogs with allergies or food sensitivities did very well with them too.  Some people also found them to be very good to use for training.

    As you can see, they are not too big and not too small.  We must admit they don't look too appetizing (do they sort of resemble something that we don't want to mention:), but oh that smell!!!  We couldn't wait to sink our teeth into one or two or three or more.

    We both focused intently on that bag in Mom's hands. The smells emanating from the bag had us in a trance.

    We simultaneously did the required down and stay.  But we were so hoping there would be a quick release.

    Up close and pawsonal as Lightning gets his first taste.

    And Misty gobbled her taste from Mom's paw very nicely.

    Our very attentive posture and gaze have to tell you that we really loved these mackerel and greens goodies.  We give them a solid 8 paws up.  And we are pretty sure that the Momster in front of us is going to let us have some more.

    If you want to try these treats, visit HERE.  While you are there, check out all the other wonderful products offers, and they do so with great service, good prices, and a wide variety.  We received this product at no cost to us in exchange for a fair and honest review.   Aside from Mom's sensitive nose to the smell of mackerel, we found no negatives with this treat.  Thank you, and Ms. Natalie.

    Valentine's Day!!!

    Lightning is on his way in a very snazzy car with his date Tegan!!!

    "Oh my goodness, what a time I am going to have with this little gal - and here I thought Misty was a pawful:)"

    "There sure are some tasty treats on that dessert table - no, I didn't mean Tegan, but yes, she is pretty darn cute if you ask me!"

    "Yikes, a Kissing Booth!!!!  Alright, Tegan - you can have one smooch.  But oh wait, that was pretty special - shall we do it again?"

    And are you wondering what the little pest is up to?  Well, Misty is in the Youth Room.  We sure hope she is behaving herself.
