Mackie Learns to Drive

We got an email from dad a couple of days ago.     It seems that he was having dinner at a restaurant with friends.   He had driven his Ford Pick-up and Mackie and Jett were with him waiting in his truck.   Mackie was in the driver's seat and Jett was in the back seat.   He parked his truck right out front where he could keep an eye on the dogs.

Luckily, he glanced up at the right time and he thought that he saw his truck moving.   OMD, he DID see his truck moving!    It was rolling away down the hill in the parking lot!
Dad jumped up and ran out of the restaurant as fast as he could - all along trying to get the key out of his pocket to open the door and stop the runaway truck!

He said that Mackie was looking at him running alongside the truck from the driver's seat.  His truck was heading for a bank in the same parking lot.  Thankfully, his truck crashed softly into a pipe handrail outside the bank where it came to rest.

 He told us that everyone in the restaurant was watching the whole event unfold.    Thank doG no one was hurt!     Dad said that both Mackie and Jett were totally unfazed by Mackie's first driving lesson☺
And by the way - just in case you were wondering.  No doggie engaged the gear shifter.  Dad says that it's a transmission issue that needs to be addressed.

On another note~
Remember the barn raising in May in Northford - two doors down from Dad's house?   It's Miss Heather's barn.   It's all finished and looking just beautiful!
We love it white!
Hey, Mackie.   Don't plan on driving mom's car when you come to visit us☺

Love ya lots♥

Nulo Chicken Jerky

This month we are reviewing Nulo Free Style Grain-free Chicken Jerky Strips for Miss Natalie and Chewy.
The chicken treats inside smell absolutely fabulous!

 The yummy ingredients are chicken, apples and coconut and lots of other stuffs that doesn't sound quite as delicious but mom says they're good for me.

"Every bite is loaded with chicken as the first ingredient plus wholesome apples, and a boost of goodness from probiotics to support your dog’s digestive and immune health. Tear them into bite-sized pieces for training, or treat your pal to a whole jerky when he’s been extra good! They’re slow-cooked to perfection in a natural smokehouse for a flavor your pal will jump, sit, and stay for, and they have none of the extra calories from sugar or cane molasses. Plus, they’re made in the USA with no grains, added salt, corn, wheat, gluten, soy, artificial preservatives, colors or flavorings."
 They're soft and can be torn into a smaller training treat but luckily, mom didn't do that.   I got the entire 4 inch treat☺
 These chicken jerkys are a great size for stuffing my pickle!

What do you think about another one, mom?     I am being a very good girl and keeping this pumpkin hat on my head!
 Come on, mom!   I'm really being such a good girl!
 Thank you for letting me review the Nulo Chicken Jerky, Miss Natalie and Chewy!   I give it 4 paws up!   It is awesomely delicious!
Love ya lots♥

A First for Me

I finally had one - my very first Greenie EVER, thanks to the generosity of Miss Natalie and Chewy.

 I can smell the apple!
 So this is what I've been missing all of these years!    What a yummy treat!
 I always thought they were supposed to be bigger, mom.     I can have another one, right?!
I can't wait until tomorrow - it's got to be NOW!

Love ya lots♥

Popcorn and a Movie

Mom decided that yesterday would be a good popcorn and movie day.  It was rainy and depressing.    Mom had never seen this movie before and had high hopes that she would like it.   She's kind of fussy about what she watches.    She said that it was an "okay" movie.   

But the best part of popcorn and movie day isn't the movie - it's the popcorn, right☺    So mom made the popcorn before the movie started~
Keep it coming, AirePopper!  We want lots and lots!
 I will wait over here seeing as that machine is making all sorts of scary noises, mom!
 Are you going to share any of that popcorn with me soon?

I hope we can have a popcorn and movie day again soon.  At least this movie had a happy ending!

Love ya lots♥

A Chewy Goodie Box

I got a surprise box in the mail on Friday from Chewy!    Miss Natalie sent us an email and gave us a heads-up but we had no idea that she meant that it would arrive the next day!    It's a Goodie Box and it's new from Chewy!
Something sure smells yummy inside this box!

 HOLY TAMOLEY!!! -  I hit the jackpot!    Look at all of this good stuffs and it's all edible!
 There are jerky treats and training sized treats and soft-baked treats and freeze-dried treats and something that I have NEVER had and mom has always been a meanie to buy for me - GREENIES!
 And hiding in the bottom of the box - OMD, it's a bully stick!

 All I can say is that this is going to be a very yummy month for me with all of these superTasty treats!    This is a new fun-filled box that Chewy is offering.  There are actually 3 different Goodie Boxes that Chewy has available. They offer them for kitties and smaller dogs too.  What a nice gift this would make for some special doggie and it's also the perfect "I Love You" gift for your special furkid!
The pamphlet that's included has training tips on how to get us doggies how to "lie down" and "roll over" and "give paw".     
I'm in and there are lots of training treat rewards in this Goodie Box!
What a wonderful gift this Goodie Box is - for birthdays for Christmas or "just because"!  Make sure you head here to get yours!   You will NOT be sorry! 
Thank you, Miss Natalie and the Chewy team for making my day and my month extra-special!

Love ya lots♥

Flower Friday

We are joining Rosy and the Boys for Flower Friday and World Smile Day☺

Off we go on our walk to find pretty flowers~~

 We took a picture of this same Clematis vine in mid-August.   It's still blooming!
 We found more Zinnias~
 This yard is FULL of flamingos!  You need to get a shot of the entire yard, mom.   These peeps really love these funny pink birdies!
 And we found a blooming Butterfly Weed.  
 This one we had to look up because we didn't know what it was.   When mom discovered that it was Crape Myrtle, she almost feel out of her puter chair! She had no idea they could grow and bloom this far north!   What a treat!
Happy World Smile Day☺
Love ya lots♥
