Blue Buffalo Boo Bars



(We love the Hawks and the Broncos in this house.) ;-)

Earlier this month we got some snazzy treats from Chewy to try out.


Blue Buffalo Boo Bars!

These treats (on sale for just $5.79!) are made of oatmeal, flaxseed, pumpkin, and carrots…to name a few ingredients.

Teton and I both agree that they smell divine and they have the perfect amount of crunch to them.


Added bonus: an adorable little pumpkin on each treat!

If you’re in the market for a fun Halloween treat head over to to snag a bag or two of these!

4-Legger Shampoo

Hi y’all.

Henley Pretzel is excited to share a new product with you.



A few weeks ago we received a bottle of shampoo from the folks at 4-Legger. Their signature product is their Aloe and Lemongrass Organic Pet Shampoo (yes, you can use it on all pets!) but they also have two beautiful stoneware dog bowls.


4-Legger Dog Shampoo has a unique creation story.

On the day that one of 4-Legger’s owners was diagnosed with cancer, one of our beloved dogs lost his battle with cancer. We have come a long way since that day. Cancer is in remission and we have worked to remove products from our lives (and the lives of our pets) that may cause health issues (from skin sensitivities to accumulated toxins, and worse).

We are health conscious, environmentally minded, and focused on bringing to the market products that you can trust. We urge you to read ingredient labels and to do research on products. The pet industry currently has no regulations for labeling and listing ingredients, making it difficult for the consumer to make educated choices. We love our 4-Leggers. They are not just pets, they are part of our family. 


I love any product that tells me why it has the ingredients it has. 4-Legger has some wonderful ones like lemongrass coconut oil, and rosemary.


Henley Pretzel gave 4-Legger a go last weekend. He doesn’t much care for baths but was a good sport. :-)


4-Legger Dog Shampoo smells divine. I love a good lemongrass candle and this reminded me of ones I’ve smelled in the past. A little went a long way (Henley is pretty tiny, after all) and it sudsed up very well as you can see in the photo above. It rinsed out with ease.

Once Henley was done with his bath he got some stank back. ;-)

Days after Henley’s bath I got reports that he smelled great and that his hair was soft and smooth. I call that a shampooing win!


If you’re in the market for a new shampoo for your dog or other pet, give 4-Legger a try!

Thanks to the team at 4-Legger for sending us a sample.

National Dog Day!

Happy National Dog Day!


Every day is National Dog Day in our house, but it was fun to see all the posts on social media today.


In the spirit of social media…




Oh, and I got those ASPCA Vans I’d been eyeing. :-) On sale! Today was the perfect day to wear them.

National Dog Day was a little more special than normal because Teton got to munch on some new treats from


Chewy sent us some Wellness Pure Rewards Turkey Jerky and Teton loooves them.


Grain-free, wheat-free, soy-free, and corn-free, these treats have limited ingredients and consist of of over 90% meat. They come in a variety of flavors including venison and salmon.

I like these treats because they’re chewy and easy to break into smaller pieces. Because they’re moist they also have a stronger smell and richer taste, which your dog will love.

Thanks to Chewy for hooking us up with another great treat!

Blue Buffalo Wilderness Wild Chews

Happy Saturday!

Teton is about like this today:


Because he had a play date with his cousin, Henley Pretzel, yesterday.


His play date consisted of a romp at the beach, a hike on the trail, a trip to his favorite pet store, and…a bath. But he’s trying to forget about that last thing. ;-)

Even though he’s wiped, I wanted him to try out our newest treat from – a Blue Buffalo Wilderness Wild Chews Knuckle Bone.

IMG_5405This chew (on sale for $7.99/$12.99!) comes in Wolf (8 oz) and King (20 oz) sizes. Teton isn’t a big dog so we got the Wolf size.

Blue Buffalo’s Wilderness Wild Chews are cleaned and wrapped so when you order one it will come in plastic as shown in the photo above.

IMG_5409Here’s the top side of the chew unwrapped…

IMG_5411…and the bottom side (hello, bone marrow!).

This is a pretty hearty chew. Teton could smell it even before I opened it and waited patiently for me to give it to him.

IMG_5408Like other chews, this one from Blue Buffalo has a note on the packaging that reads “IMPORTANT: Bone splinters and small pieces can pose a hazard. Please supervise your dog while he enjoys Wild Chews.” I always, always watch Teton when he has a chew. No matter how many times he’s had it before.

IMG_5417I wanted to love this chew…but in all honesty, it made me nervous. Teton isn’t a super aggressive chewer, but pieces of the bone started breaking off almost instantly once he got to work on it. The bone marrow is meant to be chewed on, and I’m fine with that, but bigger chunks of the outside of the bone were splintering and coming off and that made me one nervous dog mom. So, just a few minutes after I gave it to him, I “traded” him for something tastier and took it away.

Was I being too cautious? Maybe. Perhaps this chew would be better for smaller dogs who are less likely to hack off big chunks. I’m not really sure.

I think chews are a fantastic way to help your dogs oral hygiene and they’re a great alternative to things like rawhide, but I recommend going the route of fresh bones (yes, they can be gross but after a few times you won’t even notice it) or things like Himalayan Dog Chews and antlers. In my experience there is less room for error with those types of chews because splinters don’t happen quite as easily.

I think Blue Buffalo is a great brand I love many of their other treats (check ’em out here) for Teton. As always, thanks to for sending us this chew to try out!

Life Lately + Grriggles Toys

Teton went on a boat for the first time in his life earlier this week.

Teton on a Boat

The first 10 minutes were probably the worst of his life and he spent them shaking on his dad’s lap, but after that initial “What in the hell are you doing to me, Mom?!” he was more or less happy as a clam cruising around the water.

His pal Milo (also known as Miles) didn’t have as traumatic an experience.

Milo on a Boat

It’s been hot here in good old Washington State, and I think it’s safe to say most dogs who have lived here their whole lives aren’t used to the heat. Teton wears his Kool Collar on the daily and I really believe it helps cool him off.

Kool Collar

It’s hard impossible to tell that he’s wearing it here, but he’s a happy cool little dude when it’s around his neck!

I took a few vacation days earlier this month and decided that Teton deserved a new toy since I was celebrating, um, being on vacation……..right.

T’s favorite toys are squishy, fluffy or furry toys that he can carry around the house and throw up in the air for himself. Knowing that, I picked this delightful little gem.

Purple Pig 1

It’s a purple pig. :-) The manufacturer is Grriggles and unfortunately I can’t find their official website, but I did find a handful of their products on (Pretty sure the unicorn and dinosaur are must-haves.)


Teton waited patiently for his new purple pig and played with it for a while after I gave it to him. (It’s been a while since he got a new toy.) It has one of those non-traditional deep squeakers which is fun (slash less annoying) and it’s round so it’s easy to throw and retrieve.

This particular toy may not get as much love as some of T’s other favorites, but it was reasonably priced at $8.95 so I’m good with that. New toys for the win!

Stay cool and happy tails…

Denali + Etsy Love

Whew. It’s been a hot minute.

Teton says hello.

If you’re a dog parent (or dog lover) and you haven’t seen Denali yet, you need to. Yes, I cried. Like a baby. Yes, parts of it made me sad, but wow. What an awesome tribute. Check it out.
