A Good Reason

A good reason to train your pups is so that they can more fully pawticipate in family life and more easily be taken to public places.  Our pawrents started our training when we were very young.  As soon as our vaccinations were all done, we started attending PSU (Pet Smart University) cuz our pawrents said we were gonna be social doggies! 

Our pawrents exposed us to everything they could find.  Loud noises, lots of people and general commotion were just some of the things they sought out so we would not be scared when we were man-dogs.  

So when we were just 6 months old they decided we were ready for our first LONG ride in the truck. We went on vacation to Northern California!


We learned all about oceans!


We explored beaches!




We learned about waves and salt water!




We learned that driftwood was fun!




We learned that digging in the sand is a blast!


We learned about hiking and giant redwood trees!


And we practiced posing - everywhere!


Mom and dad say we are great travelers and they are blessed to be able to take us with them.  We just think we're lucky to explore so many new places! So far we have been to 12 states:  Utah, Idaho, Oregon, California,  Nevada, Arizona, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Indiana, South Dakota, and Illinois.  Pretty soon (next month) we're gonna add Washington to the list too!

So next time your pawrents talk to you about school, it might be a good idea to go!

TBT - Oregon 2015

With our long lasting heat wave, we are thinking a lot about our trip to the Oregon Coast next month.  There is so much to do and it should be a lot cooler than here!  Here is a glimpse of our trip 2 years ago . . . 

















And that is just the beginning!

Chewy Review & Challenge

Me and Stanley have missed out on our Chewy reviews the past several months.  So this month we wanted to be sure to do it!  We selected a good one -  Caru Beef Recipe Baked Bites!


And the best thing is they sent us these treats FREE!  All we had to do was promise to give our honest opinion.  Easy Peasy!  We wasted no time getting that package open!


Mom liked the size.  She said that way we could have more than one.  We think that is a bonus!  So dad put them down in front of us and then said the bad word . . . WAIT!


Oh for the love . . . we had to wait 87 hours!!



Finally dad said "TAKE IT" and then this blur of fur flew right in front of me . . .


Yup, Stanley ate MINE! Then quickly ate his!


So I did get another one and thought it was delicious!  BUTT next time I need to keep an eye on my thieving brother!  We liked them and mom liked them too cuz they passed her standards.  It is made in the USA and . . .

Key Benefits
  • USDA-inspected beef is the number one ingredient along with delicious blueberries and cranberries
  • Grain-free and gluten-free recipe for even the most sensitive dogs
  • No corn, wheat, soy, or GMO ingredients
  • Prepared in small batches to ensure quality and freshness
  • Formulated without the use of artificial preservatives, flavors or colors so you know it's safe for your furbaby

Me and Stanley have given this treat 8 paws up!

Now, we move along to the second part where we decorate our Chewy box and repurpose it . . .

 We knew we had to do something special cuz only special things are found in a Chewy box!


Unfortunately cuz of that lack-of-thumbs issue we had to elicit mom's assistance.  Everyone knows mom is really bad at this stuff!  BUTT we gave her detailed instructions!


We had her cut off the flaps & cover them in our special paper.


And look what we made!  Like we said, only special things go in a Chewy box!


Now I can be organized and select the pawfect Wilson for the job!


But I think I'm gonna need Chewy to send me some more boxes!

Friday Mischief

Our pawrents went for a 13 mile run early this morning.  So me and Stanley were left alone to amuse ourselves.  When they got home, this is what they found . . .


Remember that delicious mud that dad covered with pavers?


Remember how mom had the carpets cleaned last week?


Mom said, "Who did this???????????"

You know our policy is to NEVER confess unless there's video!

We just told her some doggy came through OUR doggy door and made this mess.


Then we found out - there's video . . . 



Yes, Stanley did it.  I was proven INNOCENT!  But then right after dad fixed the buffet spot I strolled into the office with a big ol' clump of grass and mud.  And mom and dad were both in the office when I did it.  

BUSTED!
