Hello everyone! We apologize for not being around lately. We have been on Facebook and it seems to consume all the allotted time for computer stuff. BUTT we begged mom and now we are making a post and later today will be walking around Blogville to visit you!
This top picture was taken when we went to see our Mayor off. We really like him and our pawrents went to a Farewell Reception a few days prior to this. On this day the pawlice had their sirens blazing and drove past all the schools in our city so the people could wave goodbye to our Mayor. He is being deployed to Afghanistan for a year. He will be missed by not just his wife and 7 (yup, not a typo) children, but the citizens of our town too.
This is Stanley's secret hiding place. It is at the base of mom's standing desk.
Mom said I should tell you I have a little bad spot on my paw pad, so me and Stanley cannot go for our run today. Mom says it looks like it is healing just fine and beginning to wonder if there has always been a loss of pigment in the little spot. But she says we're not taking any chances.
Mom and dad are talking about taking a trip in the Wheelie House in a few months. We might go to the Grand Canyon. Mom and dad have been there before butt me and Stanley have not.
Again, we will pop over to see everyone later today. Mom has to get ready to go running for now.
Our friends at Chewy asked us to review a fun feeder. Of course, we are interested in ANYTHING that says "feeder" so we were really fast to say,
"Oh heck yeah!"
Then I looked at Stanley and asked,
"What's a fun feeder?"
Stanley didn't know either so we googled it and found it here. Then in the blink of an eye, Natalie at Chewy said she'd get it shipped out to us!
When we got it, mom opened the box and saw how big it was. It is not a cheapie baby feeder, it was made for man dogs like us! It is VERY sturdy with rubber grips on the bottom to prevent sliding.
12 inch diameter
It said it would hold 4 cups so we played a trick on mom saying there was no way it would hold more than 2 or 3 pieces of kibble so she filled it waaaaaay up! When we saw it we both said,
"Wow, that holds a lot of food!"
Now we have to tell you that neither my brother nor I are fast eaters. Well, Stanley eats treats super fast but his regular food he eats nice and slow, just like me. BUTT we have furends who eat so fast they throw up! We can easily see how this would slow them down fur sure. Butt me and Stanley were just in it for the fun and it was fun!
So mom did an experiment and put the fun feeder next to our regular free feeder thingie to see what we'd do. And guess what? We went back and forth!
Mom likes that the fun feeder is easy to clean (top rack dishwasher safe) and made of safe plastic (BPA, PVC & phthalate free). Me and Stanley like it cuz there's food in it BOL!
We highly recommend this feeder for all our furends who eat too fast or for those looking to buy a nice pressie for their dog.
Everytime Stanley sees mom and dad getting ready to go running he starts (loudly) pleading his case for us to go too. Since we only go on Mondays (cuz mom says we stop too much for sniffing & peeing) there are 2 other days where Stanley begs "Please, please, can we go?" And the answer is always "No, today's not your day." BUTT when we see that our food has been taken up we KNOW it's our running day! And today was the day!
This time it wasn't us who stopped either!
And we weren't having any of it either!
Here are some pics mom took around our house. We have had a lot of fog (and smog) lately. This is mostly fog.
