Nulo FreeStyle

This month, we selected the Nulo FreeStyle Lamb with Raspberries Freeze-Dried Raw foodables from Chewy to try out.
It’s all the benefits of raw without the hassle, containing 80% lamb, organs and bone for the ultra-rich protein and balanced fat your pal needs to feel and look his best, plus dried egg yolks, broccoli and kale. It also has GanedenBC30, a powerful probiotic, or “good bacteria” that supports your dog's digestive and immune health with every bite. These irresistible morsels are minimally-processed and quickly frozen to lock in the most nutrients and flavors. Plus, it’s made with no corn, wheat, soy, artificial preservatives, colors or flavorings.
The ingredients :
Lamb, Lamb Liver, Ground Lamb Bone, Lamb Kidney, Raspberries, Broccoli, Apples, Dried Egg Yolks, Butternut Squash, Green Beans, Blueberries, Carrots, Kale, Spinach, Parsley, Apple Cider Vinegar, Ground Flaxseed, Salt, Dried Kelp, Inulin, Dried Bacillus coagulans Fermentation Product, Potassium Chloride, Salmon Oil, Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Mixed Tocopherols (natural preservative), Vitamin E Supplement, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Vitamin D3 Supplement.

Mom let me give it a whirl in my interactive toy first~
 Yes, I have successfully learned how to pull the black string to open the drawer!
 How did you get in there?!
So now it is time to use the Nulo as a topper on my dindin!
 And my bowl is licked clean and I'm still licking it for another 5 minutes!
Thank you so very much, Miss Natalie and the Chewy Team, for letting me review the Nulo FreeStyle!    I give it 4 paws up!

*I received this item free of charge for my honest review*

In the afternoon, Mackie and I said our good-byes. 
Come back soon, buddy!  We had lots of fun playing in the snow together!

Shorter Furs

Mom did groom Mackie like she said she was gonna.  Do you know what that crazy AireBoy did?  She was putting her hair up in preparation for the job and when she got into my playroom, which she uses for the grooming room, Mackie was on the truck waiting for her to arrive!   I was in the bathtub praying that it wasn't me she was after!
 The snow was falling like a trooper and it's the wet heavy kind.    Mom says no going out to play in it until it stops. 
 Keep sucking on PurpleBaby, Mackie!  At least it will give you something to do.  
 Mackie's birthday gift is his new collar.   It has feathers on it.   Seeing as Mackie's dad is totally into Indian Motorcycles, we thought it would be perfect for him.

 Has it stopped snowing yet, mom?!
We got to play outside for a wee bit!  yay!

Love ya lots♥
Molly and Mackie

Green Beans

My bloodwork results are back and they are normal and that is a very good thing!   I don't have a thyroid issue.   My vet said that I will stay on the 3 omega three capsules.    He thinks that it will help.   He did say that other pups can get hyperkeratosis around their noses so I guess I should be happy that it's on my paws and not on my face.   He also said that it can be hereditary.  He suggested BagBalm and Vaseline for my paws and our friend, Miss Joni, suggested aloe vera gel and also coconut oil.   Something has got to work, right?!

Mom keeps wondering if my tennis ball birthday cake put me over the top on my weight.    I did get to eat the entire thing in one sitting☺

Look what she bought for me.    A whole huge bag of green beans.   Oh joy!
 Hummmmmm - they're not so bad!
 We saw this on facebook recently.     One good thing about being overweight is no hawk can ever get me off the ground!
On a serious note -  When we lived in Northford, we saw lots of hawks in our yard.   They are very beautiful birdies but they're aggressive and can be very nasty.    Be careful!
I think my walks are paying off already.    I look much slimmer, don't you think?!
 How pretty!
 The weather peeps say that we're getting snow today and they're right.   The flakes have already started to fall.  YAY!
And you'll never guess who arrived here late morning yesterday!  Mackie!
 Mom says with all of the exercise that I'll be getting, the excess weight will just FALL off me!
 And guess who we got to meet?  DaVinci!      He belongs to our new landlord.   Isn't he just too cute!  
 Your dad says that you need to grow up a bit more before you can come on our side of the fence and play with us, DaVinci!
Hey Mackie - mom is looking at your bouffant hAiredo and thinking groomies for you!
Love ya lots♥

Happy Birthday!

Madi's 16th Birthday

Today is my friend, Madi's, 16th birthday!
 This is my very first time driving from Connecticut to North Carolina!   I didn't have room inside the car for your birthday cake so I strapped it to the roof of my car, Madi.
I think I'm lost.   The darn GPS is leading me astray.
 I'm on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Madi.  Am I getting close to your house yet?
 Happy 16th Birthday, Madi!

Love ya lots♥

My Rough Paws

As long as I can remember, I've have always had rough ugly paws.   Mom noticed lately that I was walking gingerly at times, like maybe something hurt.  I have been on the Dr Lyon's Hip and Joint Support that Chewy sent me and it seems to be working just fine.  I have been taking glucosamine support since I was a year old so she didn't think I had arthritis issues and then it dawned on her that maybe my rough feets were the issue.   She checked the intermuts and discovered that there is a condition called hyperkeratosis, also known as hairy dog feets.
 This condition can be caused by underlying health issues and we need to know that I don't have any of those!

 Mom has been putting treatment on my feets forever and nothing she uses makes them softer like they're supposed to be.
 These are my ugly front feets.   I have the hyperkeratosis on all 4 paws.  
 The vet did steal a whole vial of my blood and he did send me home with Vetoquinol omega fatty acids and I have to take 3 capsules a day - 2 for breakie and 1 for dindin.    He thinks that this could help me out while my thyroid levels and other stuffs are being checked out.  
 He also sent me home with this box that has a bottle inside.   He wants mom to collect my poo and mail it off for analysis.    How disgusting is that!   The mailman will never be my friend ever again!
 He also made me get on the scale and discovered that I had gained 6 pounds since last spring and he told mom that I needed to lose the weight that I had put on. 
I happen to think that I have a beautiful muscle butt with no fat whatsoever anyplace!
When we got home from the vet, I got to go for my walkie so I'm a happy girl once again.   My paws are crossed that mom doesn't take too many of my NECESSARY treats away from me while we wait for my vet to call back with results.
Love ya lots♥

March Flower Friday

We are joining Rosy for Flower Friday~

Here I come to check out what spring buds we can find - this was before the snowstorm~
We found some daffy leaves emerging from the soil before the snow fell~
 And some daylilies trying to stay away from the snow~
Guess what?  Mom has been watering and fertilizing her Primroses and African Violets and they are thriving and blooming ☺
 Mom says that we are more than ready for spring!
But I say - bring on more snow!
Love ya lots♥

Our Nor’easter

We had snow flakes throughout the morning and afternoon yesterday and in the early evening, the snow started to come down - wet and mixed with rain and blowing sideways and accumulating quickly.
Look what the snow did to my Kousa Dogwood tree~
 And it laid my poor Arborvitae trees over!
 We got about 7 inches of snow~
 Enough to have lots of fun in☺
We are very thankful that we didn't lose our power.   So many others in Connecticut did. 

I'm off to play in my snow!

Love ya lots♥
