Musing on Monday

I see my pals out there.  I want to go out with them.
I bet we could have fun running up and down the fence line.

Misty:  Maybe if we sit nicely, Mom will let us out.  Don't you think, Lightning?

Lightning: Dream on, Misty.  It is raining cats and dogs out there - that's what I heard Mom say.

WELL - all the more reason I should be out there too.

Happy Rainy Monday.

Saturday Meetup

With all the rain the past few days, we can't walk on our trail because the creek overflows onto the walkway and leaves lots of very slick muddy spots.  We love to trek through the mud, but Mom says it is even worse than ice - she can't seem to keep her footing in the mud:)  So we crossed the big busy street and went to visit Phantom's pals.

Right away I spotted this one.  I asked him if he knew Joe and Smoke but he was too busy grazing to pay any attention to me.

Lightning, do you think we could woo up a song together to get that donkey to come talk to us?

Look, Misty - that donkey has a few buddies over there.

Oh, I see them now.  Let's call them over.

I think it is working, Lightning - here they come.

Whoa!!!  Let's GO!!! I am outta here right now!!!

Flower Friday

We were out walking this morning and saw this beautiful display of roses in our neighbor's yard.  They said we were more than welcome to pose in front of them. So we DID, and now we can join Da DB Boys and Angel Dory for Flower Friday.

So, Mom - why aren't these pretty rosy roses imprisoned like all our flowers???  Now let's get home since we got soaked by that unexpected downpour!!!  And don't forget the treats when we get inside.

Thankful Thursday

Today we are joining Brian and his family in the Thankful Thursday bloghop.

We are thankful those storms missed us yesterday and hoping they do the same tonight.  Unfortunately it's that time of the year again - worries and warnings and hopefully no action.

AND thankful that no SomePup those BIG winds didn't devour Mom's imprisoned flowers:)

Wondering on Wednesday

UPDATE:  Storms have all passed by for today.

Who turned the lights out?  It's only 2:00 in the afternoon and my napping spot has gotten very dark.  It is starting to look like nighttime outside.

Can you do something about that wind?  It is really bothering my ears.  And those trees outside are really bending pretty low.

Tornado watch???  What's that mean???

Tasty Tuesday #ChewyInfluencer

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday with

As Chewy Influencers, we are here to share with you another great product available at

I saw the box arrive on our front porch last week, but Mom just opened the box - wonder what this could be?

 Hey Mom, I might need some help with this flip top.  I don't think my paws were made for this job.  But once you open these cans I think I will be very happy to do a taste test.

Misty, don't forget there are TWO of us in this pack - we will definitely be sharing those cans.

We received a case of Zignature limited ingredient formula canned food. There are several flavors available, but we decided to try the trout and salmon formula.  We have been eating Zignature Limited Ingredient kibble for a long time now - we get a mix of the whitefish and turkey kibble.  But we have not tried their canned formulas.  Since we do enjoy our kibble, we are excited to see how good the canned food is too.  (the drawing in the background is one done by one of the grandboys of Angel Phantom)

What is inside the can may not look too appetizing to humans, it is like a pate in texture.  But we were immediately drawn to the yummy odor of trout and salmon. Mom wants to add that the odor is NOT terribly fishy at all.

Some information from the website about the food:


Dogs are carnivors by nature and do best on meat-based diets. Their teeth, digestive systems and behavior clearly confirm this fact. Zignature delivers a complete and balanced diet with meat as the first ingredient to provide great nutrition with the finest blends of meats, legumes, vegetables, fruits and oils available.

Key Benefits

  • Grain-free and limited ingredient formula
  • Made with Trout and Salmon from the cold waters of the Northwestern USA
  • Trout provides a high-quality source of complete protein loaded with essential heart-friendly Omega-3 Fatty Acids, is rich in Vitamin B12, and provides Niacin, B6, Phosphorus and Selenium
  • Free of the most common potential canine allergens: corn, wheat, soy, dairy, and chicken
  • Nutritionally correct ratio of fruits and vegetables rounds out the recipe with powerful antioxidants, and fiber-rich low glycemic carbohydrates


  1. Trout, Fish Broth, Salmon, Peas, Chickpeas, Agar-Agar, Calcium Carbonate, Salmon Meal, Suncured Alfalfa Meal, Carrots, Potassium Chloride, Salt, Choline Chloride, Cranberries, Blueberries, Minerals (Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Calcium Iodate), Vitamins (Vitamin E Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, Niacin Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Biotin, Vitamin A Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid).

This is Misty's bowl - kibble, pumpkin, a few green beans, and a scoop of what looks like coffee ice cream but is really her share of the trout and salmon canned food.

Lightning's bowl -  a little less kibble, a few more green beans, pumpkin, and some trout and salmon canned food.

Here it is after Mom mixed it altogether.  

And the same for Misty.

 We hope you enjoy our video as we get our first taste.

If you can't see the video, you can view it on YouTube HERE.

Yes, we both lick our bowls clean, and yes, we check out each other's bowl when we are done.  As you can see, there wasn't a morsel left in our bowls.  We have to say we really DID enjoy Zignature's trout and salmon formula limited ingredient canned food.

All that taste testing took place yesterday.  If our inner clocks are correct, we think it is time for dinner today.  Misty, you keep your eyes on Mom while I watch our bowls.  Between the two of us we should be able to get those bowls on the floor soon.

Thanks, for sending us at no cost to us this product in exchange for a fair and honest review.  We wish we could find even more words and ways to tell you how much we enjoyed the food and how much we love
