Wishful Thinking Saturday

YES, Mom, I know this is the first time you have spotted me in this special hiding place.  And YES, I know it was Angel Ciara's sanctuary.

So why do you think I am in here???

I am channeling Ciara's spirit to get this thing off my head!!!

Thankful Thursday

The Thankful part of today's post is from Mom.  She says she is just so very grateful to have a dog who is as tolerant and patient and kind as Mr. Lightning.

SomePup seems to want to be attached at his hip:)

"Yeah, she really has me boxed in a corner here:)  I don't mind, if she needs a little TLC. I am here to help.  That would be Tender Lightning Care."

"There is only one problem - I am really thirsty and the water bowl is all the way at the other end of the room.  How do I manage that???"

Woos - Lightning and Misty

Note from Mom - Misty is doing very well.  She has way too much energy, but we are doing our best to control it.  She has to go outside on leash, and we have to monitor the playing inside because she SO wants to roughhouse with Lightning.  We have tried to let her go cone-free, but she immediately goes to lick her incision.  So she will remain lampshaded at least for now:)  Thanks for all the good wishes for Misty.

Happy Girl!!!

I am HOME!!!

I just got home and I am one very happy girl.  I guess whatever was broken is now fixed.  For some reason, Mom isn't too excited about the discharge instructions for no running, no jumping, no climbing for 14 days!!!  I already tried to do zoomies around the family room with Lightning and got the NO NO NO words.  Keep your paws crossed for the Momster.  Mom says to let you all know that I am doing just great!!!  Everyone at the V.E.T.'s fell in love with me.  She says maybe she will take me back there for 14 days if they love me so much:)

Wondering Wednesday

I am wondering what this thing is?  It sure is pretty colorful and I think there is a squeaker inside.

It's a WHAT?  A Gecko??? And it's a surprise for Misty when she gets home???

Are you sure Misty won't be afraid of a "gecko"???  Maybe I need to teach it a few manners before it meets my sister:)

Pee Ess - Misty did just fine with her surgery and should be home all encased in her stylish lampshade sometime this morning.

Tasty Tuesday

Well, it's a mopey Tuesday here for me today.  Yes, even I have to admit it - I AM missing my little sister pest!

With gloomy skies and no one to chew on me, I may as well just sleep.

BUT - WAIT!!!  Yesterday Mom remembered that today is the day we need to do our January Chewy Influencer review of one of the two products we received this month.  Fortunately for both me and Misty, we had a great time enjoying this wonderful treat.

We received a package of Evanger's Wild Salmon treats.

The package says they are good for dogs, cats, and ferrets.  Good thing there are no cats or ferrets in this household - all the more for us!!!

Mom is always happy to see this label, although we know there are many other countries that produce good, safe, and tasty pet products too. 

And who wouldn't be happy to read that there is nothing artificial in them either!  They are a ONE ingredient treat - SALMON!!!  The website gives us this description of the treats:

Wild Salmon is high in protein, low in calories and saturated fat, and rich in natural omegas. It's great for pets with food allergies, and tastes great! Because of the palatability and wholesomeness of these gently dried treats, they are excellent for finicky pets or pets with food sensitivities, as well as for use as a training reward or food mixer.

We plated a few of the strips from the bag alongside one of our fishoil capsules.  You can see that the treats are a VERY good size, right Mom??

Sheesh, why does she have to do THAT???  OK, yes, they do break easily enough, but we are hoping to get a bigger piece or at least a few of those smaller ones.

Key Benefits

  • Single ingredient salmon treats are nutrient dense and can be a treat, training award, food topper, or reconstituted in warm water for 3-5 minutes for a savory snack.
  • Grain-free, gluten-free product, endorsed by the cRc Kosher for Passover.
  • Salmon is naturally rich in omegas which help improve skin & coat
  • Highly palatable treats are perfect for finicky or picky pets

So now we have to do through the silly routine for Mom.




OK, OK, OK,  let us at it NOW!!!

Side by side synchronized sampling:)

Now how about some more?

Being Northern breeds, we love all things fish!!!  Salmon is a favorite for us but these treats do come in other flavors too, like beef liver, beef tripe, beef heart, beef lung, beef tongue, and pheasant.  Just visit the site HERE for a look at all the great products they offer, including this one.  We would definitely give Evanger's gently dried wild salmon treats 8 paws up!!!

Many thanks to and Natalie, our new Chewy Influencer lady, for letting us take part in this test. We received the product at no cost to us in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Monday Mischief

I, Misty, heard that somePups have a ManCave.

Well, I have a MistyCave!!! 

I can just camp out in my cave where I can choose from any number of my wonderful bones.

Hey Lightning, are you trying to photobomb my post, or are you wanting to borrow a dinosaur bone from my collection?

No, Mom - I am NOT going to let you borrow ANY of my bones, unless you promise NOT to bring me to the V.E.T. tonight to get "fixed" tomorrow!!!  Deal?

Sunday Ussies

Happy Icy Sunday to all!!!

L:  Misty looks bored - it's wet outside, and there's a little bit of iciness.  But we didn't get hit too badly, and that's a good thing.

M:  Wait!!!  Do you have treats in your paws, Mom?  I think that makes my day a bit more exciting!
