Thankful Thursday

I had a grand time with my cousin Ruby yesterday, but I am so thankful for what I have at home every day.

My best buddy-bro Lightning!!!

I just love snuggling up close to him.

No wonder Angel Ciara loved him so much too:)

Wonderful Wednesday

I had a fun morning today when I went to visit my puppy cousin Ruby.  I am 8 months old and Ruby is 7 months old.  We both look about the same size but Ms. Ruby has about 15 lbs. on me:)

 Two Smiling Sweeties.

One of our quieter moments:)

Ruby needs to learn to share her sticks.

How about some action???

If the video doesn't play, you can watch in on YouTube HERE.

For some reason, Mom liked this shot.

What did you say, Mom? No, I am NOT ready to go home!!!  Lightning is probably enjoying his quiet time anyway.

A tired pup is a good pup:)

Dreaming sweet dreams of all my fun with Ruby.

Tasty Tuesday March Review - #ChewyInfluencer

This month we were lucky enough to get to do TWO product reviews for We thank the very nice Natalie for allowing us to have two opportunities for March.  Today's review is for some delicious treats, ANYTIME Treats for Dogs from The Honest Kitchen.  The Honest Kitchen is a well-respected company, and we have enjoyed other products from them as well.  

Did I hear you say something about TREATS?  Maybe I need to go see what is happening.

Lightning, your head is in the way.  What do you have there?  Let me see too.

Hold your horses, sister - you snooze, you lose:)

Hmmmm, not sure what this is, but I am getting a whiff of beef.

Hey Big Bro Lightning, I think I might need some help from your BIG teeth getting this package open.

Sorry, Misty - we need some human paws for this bag.  Mom, can you give us a paw or two?

Sure, Lightning and Misty, but let's take a look at what we have first.

We selected the 100% human grade Joyful Jerky Filets in beef flavor made by The Honest Kitchen.


The Honest Kitchen Joyful Jerky Filets Beef Dog Treats deliver 100% human-grade, minimally-processed deliciousness to your dog’s snack time. Made with a very limited number of ingredients, they’re perfect for pets with food sensitivities. They are created using a gentle dehydration process that removes only the moisture and retains most of the naturally occurring nutrients and flavors. Made with real, whole-food ingredients — and no fillers, by-products, glycerin, sugars or mixed tocopherols — they’re the feel-good reward your dog deserves.

Well, that all sounds very good to us - nothing but goodness in there.

It is always good to know what the key benefits are too:

Key Benefits:

  • Made with all-natural, ranch-raised beef
  • Contains no glycerin, fillers, or any ingredients from China
  • Deliciously chewy treats your medium or large size dogs will love
  • Made with 100% human-grade ingredients for your peace of mind
  • Thinly sliced, then air dried to savory perfection

We have the beef flavor, but also carries them in chicken flavor.

WOWZERS!!!!  Check out the size of those fillets!!!!  Finally a BIG treat!!!

Sorry, pups - they break so very nicely into smaller pieces.  The smaller the piece, the longer they will last:)

No, Mom, the smaller the pieces, the more you need to give us. 

How much longer do we have to hold this WAIT?  I don't think I can bear to wait much longer.

Whoosh - gone in a split and blurry nanosecond!

OK. time for Round 2!!!

Up close and personal snooter shot.

Me too please:)

Don't you think we could have a few more nibbles?  We think the jerky treats were very good, and the package DOES say "Anytime":)  We really would like to have some more, please.  Mom thought the fillets were a little dry compared to other jerky we have tried, but it didn't seem to matter much to us.  They went right down into our tummies with no problem at all.

Thank you, for letting us do another review for you.  Aside from the dryness, this was another great product.  We received a 3.5 oz. bag at no cost to us in exchange for a fair and honest review.  Check out The Honest Kitchen Anytime Treats for dogs at by clicking HERE.

Massive Fire in OP

We have received a number of emails about the big fire in OP and concern for us. We are fine, but we are pretty close to the fire.  The fire has consumed a brand new large apartment/office complex about four miles north of us under construction for the past 2-3 years and just ready to begin leasing units.  In addition at least 12 homes within two miles of the fire have caught on fire from heat radiation and/or flying embers.

As you can see, we are safely tucked away in our home.  There is quite a bit of smoky smell outside.  One of the apartment structures is still burning three hours after the fire began.  The good news is that only one injury has been reported so far, and it is minor injuries to a firefighter. Over 50 fire companies are here from all over the area, some from as far away as 50 miles.  Because there is some wind in the area, there is still a risk of flying embers, but we are pretty sure we are far enough away.  If you want to see more about the fire, you can see it HERE, our local NBC TV affiliate.

Thanks to all who thought about us.  Please keep all those affected by the fire in your thoughts and prayers.  It is wonderful that it doesn't appear that there were any serious injuries but there is a huge loss of property.

The Wearing of the Green

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!!!  We had to put up with a lot of shenanigans from the Momster today, but we were well-rewarded with some very tasty chicken jerky at the end.  We hope you enjoy our torture fun as we get in the spirit of St. Paddy's Day.

Sorry, Mom. You are going to have to find something else.  I am NOT wearing that hat.

See, it just isn't ME!!!

OK, Misty, if I can endure this silly hat, you can wear that crown - where is the crown anyway?  What did you do with it?

Just following your lead, Lightning.  I am not wearing that crown.  It just looks ridiculous on me!!!

Rut roh, maybe I should have gone along with that crown.

So how about a foursome?  That silly hat and that bizarre crown look much better on our stuffie pals.  Maybe Mom should think about making us a REAL pack of four once again.

Are we done yet, Mom?

OK, WE are DONE, even if the Momster is not.

Wishing you all a very fun HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!!  

May you be poor in misfortune, rich in blessings, slow to make enemies and quick to make friends. And may you know nothing but happiness from this day forward.

We see a few posts today for the St. Patrick's Day challenge.  If you missed ours, we did it on Tasty Tuesday.  You can check it out by clicking HERE if you missed it. We think you might find it a lot of fun.

Thankful Thursday

Today we are joining Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

There are just so many things in my life to be thankful for. Today I want you to see how grateful I am for this wonderful home I have with a lovely hearth for me to take a morning nap on.

Today I am sharing it with my new friend Logan the Leprechaun.  If you missed how he came to visit our family, be sure to check out our post from Tasty Tuesday HERE.  We had a lot of fun participating in the St. Paddy's Day challenge.

See how beautiful my special place is.  See that clock up there.  It belonged to my Mom's grandfather and dates back to the early 1900s.  It makes funny noises every hour and half hour, but the peeps seem to like those sounds.  As for me, I love how the cool tiles feel on my belly.  Mom calls me Hot Stuff since I also love to sleep on the cold tiles in the laundry room.

Truth be told, I think I am a very nice addition to the decor of this hearth.  What do you think?  I hope you find reasons in your life to be thankful too.
