Pegetables and Nonna

Awhile back we noticed that Joey and Tanner's mom had found this new treat that looked so yummy and intriguing to us so we asked mom if she couldn't look for these Pegetables next time she went to Petco. Mom did check - actually she checked several places and she always came home empty handed.

Last week we got a CareALot catalog in the mail and mom was flipping through it looking for a new clipper blade to groom us when she came across the treats that we've been asking for like FOREVER!

The CareALot box arrived in the mail and guess what? We got to try Pegetables and long last!

These are the neatest looking little treats! Mom got us the corn cob ones and boy, they sure do look just like little ears of corn! They don't last long but they sure do taste good!

Today would have been my Nonna's 103 birthday! She passed away a few years ago. Nonna is my grandpa's mom and you're probably wondering why I'm telling you this. One of my nicknames is Nonna! Yup, dad calls me Nonna when I hold my mouth a certain way! He thinks I look like a sweet old lady! Can you imagine? Who are you calling OLD?!

See the way I'm holding my lips? Does it look like I'm toothless? My Nonna sure wasn't!

Do I look like a Nonna to you?

So until next time................

Love ya lots,

Well, Maggie, you do kind of look like a Nonna in that shot. No hard feelings. Must be the lighting.


Cassidy said...

Poor Maggie! Daddy tells me me looks like a demon, s Nonna is better than that!

my master says that I have a Elvis look when my mouth & lips is up.

Jessica said...

You don't look like a Nona to us at all. That smile is beautiful.

Love, Seadra and Zoe

Nona? No to Nona-looking. Unless they mean it in a nice way.
Those Pegetables sound good! We'll have to look for them!
Play bows,

Faya said...

Oh those Pegetables look tasty...
Nona ? No I don't think you look like a Nona...maybe Mona Lisa ...
Kisses, Faya

Those treats look so yummy, I will have to get mum to get some of those for the party. I am so glad you can attend. Its a long ways away, but so much planning to do. Plus, it will take me that long to get all my toys put up and stay out of trouble.

Princess Patches said...

Maggie, we think that is a cute 'dale face...not a Nonna face! Those Pegetables look yummylicious! We'll have to get our secretary to find some for us!

I LOVE those Pegetables! Had one on the day we went to the pet shop. I love these kind of starchy treats to rawhides actually. And no, you don't look all that old to me!

Love licks,

Those treats look like real corn, never heard of them. I better get some.

Moco said...

You look great no matter what they want to call you. New treats are the best. We are always wanting new and different treats.

pegetables - that's a funny name cuz our mom's name is peg and she is a vegetarian! she's a pegetable! hee hee snort snort!!

we're gonna look for those too, they look good. we met a lab yesterday at the vet's office who told us that he ate 12 corn cobs when he was a puppy and had to have surgery to have them removed. that's not so good, so take it easy on the corn cobs, okay kids?

thanks for your comments to mom. she is pretty stressed out right now. she's all worried about us and our rehabilitation - Bailey has to spend 3 months in a crate! it's a lot of stuff that she has to worry about, but she's such a worrier. she tells us not to worry, cuz it's her job, and she does it a lot x 4.


Mack said...

I've been wondering if Pegables are good.

Nonna would have loved you I just know it!

Southbaygirl said...

The corn thingies look yummy! I'll have to see if mom can get me some


Lady Kaos said...

Maybe he didn't mean it in an old lady way, maybe he meant your sweetness reminds you of a beloved family member. I'm sure that's what it was.
PS Go Kyle!!

Petra said...

I love your nickname! and I can see a very slight resemblance --- and that's a compliment for sure!

Lenny said...

That's a nice nickname, Maggie! But I don't think you look like an old lady. If you're an old lady, that makes me an old man since our birthdays are so close! So you are very young. ;)

Your friend, Lenny

Putter said...


OMG!!!!!! Who is calling you old???? OMG! Those treaties look bestest everest!


Putter ...:)

BenTheRotti said...

Noah the Airedale said...

Hmmm you look like a sweet dale to us Maggie. Nonnas usually look old and you're a spring chicken!!

Stanley said...


If you look like your Nonna, then she must of been a sprightly sassy gal who looked DECADES younger than she was. (Silly dad.)

I too love pegetables, but wolf them down too fast. I sent Bogart his first "fix" of pegetables and now he's hooked too. (Is there a Pegetables Anonymous in your area? Just in case you need it.)

Goober love & smooches,

Lorenza said...

We saw those Pegetables which petstore was it...hmm

Back to winter this weekend...our driveway is a skatin' rink...


Hammer said...

Hi Maggie
Your Nonna must have been very pretty even when she was old coz you look so very pretty.
I've never heard of Petevegies before. Our mum is a pain coz she will only give us natural stuff and she always checks the labels and so many doggie treats in Australia come from Thailand and have so many preservatives in them so we're stuck with natural food.
Love from Hammer

Martha said...

I can see the resemblance to Nona! What a nice nickname. You should be honored. Love, Martha

Urban Smoothie Read said...

Jake and Taryn said...

Those treat look AMAZING!! We are going to have to try some of those!

i said...

Never seen those treats around here. They sure look yummy though.

I can empathize with you, Maggie. I've been called a granny too when I put my lips together like that.

The Zoo Crew said...

You don't look like a Nonna to us! And that corn-on-the-cob looks delicious!

peace + paws,

Unknown said...

Awe bless...

Mom really gave you a fantastic surprise in the box.. we may have to try those corncob things too!

The Brat Pack said...

We've had those one time and LOVED them. I think Mom needs to get us more!


Jessie, Jake and Lola said...

We don't think you look like your Nona. We bet your mom misses her though :-(

Peanut said...

How rude of your dad to say you look like an old lady.

Snowball said...

Nope Maggie, you dun look old at all. I believe you still have your full set of teeth. So do I.


Mojo, Digger and family said...

Humans are so unfair. They wake you out of a nice slumber, photograph you before you have to to rearrange your (truly splendid) beard and moustache, then accuse you of looking old!

If I could operate a camera, you can bet I would be posting pictures of Mum looking as old as Methusela.

still, as long as you get to lick the beaters, eh!
