Zuke’s Lil’ Links & Why I Love Chewy.com

Happy Sunday!

Anyone else genuinely like Mondays? Don’t get me wrong; I always get a little sad on Sunday evening thinking about the weekend being over, but I’ve gotten myself to a place where I actually like the clean slate of a Monday. It’s oddly motivating and refreshing.

Teton and I had a really great walk this morning on the boardwalk. ♥

First off in this blog post, I have to tell you why I have a new love for Chewy.com.

While I am an ambassador and do receive treats for Teton in exchange for reviews, the reason I have a new love for them is completely separate from that. Not only am I an ambassador, but I am also a regular Chewy.com customer. So, when I recently purchased a dog ramp for Teton to get in and out of my car and it didn’t quite work for us, I called Chewy to initiate a return.

The ramp I purchased was this one and there was absolutely nothing wrong with it. It just didn’t end up working for us.

Much to my surprise, the customer service representative that took my call told me to take the ramp to a local animal shelter and donate it and that Chewy would refund my money. You heard that right. Chewy had me donate this brand new $70 ramp to my local animal shelter and still refunded my money.

I was floored. Yes, I cried a little. Happy tears! I asked whether they needed some type of proof of donation and was told no and that Chewy just wants to see their products used toward a good cause in these types of instances and that they are happy to do it. My local animal shelter was thrilled to have the ramp.

One more reason to love Chewy.com!

This month, Teton has been enjoying a treat from Zuke’s – their Lil’ Links Pork and Apple Recipe.

IMG_1270

These treats come in a handful of flavors and are less that $6 a bag, which lasts a while if you alternate between treats like we do.

Lil’ Links are grain-free and made in the U.S. They boast a limited ingredient list including pork, apples, carrots, and potatoes.

IMG_1271

I’ve noticed recently that Teton is much more picky about his treats. Specifically, he has to really love something to take it if it’s a crunchy, hard-to-chew treat. Lil’ Links are nice because they’re super soft and easy to chew.

IMG_1273

Since they’re so soft, they are easily broken if you have a smaller dog, multiple dogs, or one that’s watching his/her weight. 😉

IMG_1244

Teton prefers them unbroken.

Zuke’s Lil’ Links are a treat we would definitely purchase in the future! Check out all of the Lil’ Links flavor options here.

Happy tails!

Himalayan Dog Chew’s Yaky Churros

Hard to believe that March is right around the corner, amiright?

IMG_0806

I also can’t believe (and am in denial) that Teton, The Little Blogger himself, will be 10 years old in November.

Let’s not talk about that.

Instead, we’ll talk about an awesome new treat that Chewy.com sent us to try.

IMG_0920

These are the Himalayan Dog Chew Yaky Churros and they are fan-freaking-tastic.

Himalayan Dog Chews are one of our favorite chews of all time, but I like the Yaky Churros because they are significantly softer and seem a bit easier for Teton to gnaw on.

IMG_0922

They’re made of just a handful of ingredients and come in bags of 4.

IMG_0923

We opted for the vegetable variety because micronutrients are our friend, but they also come in cheese and fish flavors.

IMG_0926

Each Yaky Churro is roughly 5-inches long and lasts Teton 5 – 7 minutes. This isn’t that long in terms of a chew, but I know he gets a good teeth cleaning when he eats these because of the way in which he has to break it apart to chew and digest it.

IMG_0925

I really like the Himalayan Dog Chew Yaky Churro for a fun, quick and easy treat for Teton.

The price is right on all three flavors so head over to Chewy.com to check them out!

 Happy tails…

Blue Buffalo Santa Snacks

Happy Holidays!

IMG_0528

Last week this nerd made my dreams come true by letting me smother him while he sat on my lap for a good 20 minutes. ♥ It’s the little things.

Speaking of little things, the details in the treats I want to share with you today are what make them so special.

IMG_0550

These are Blue Buffalo’s Santa Snacks, AKA “Kringle’s Cookies,” and they’re our December treat from our friends at Chewy.com. I think we’ve tried more treats than your average dog and we’ve never had them in the shape of trees, stars, and gingerbread men!

IMG_0544

“The holiday biscuits YULE love sharing.” I mean, come on. Yes.

Santa Snacks are made, like all Blue Buffalo treats, without chicken or poultry by-product and are free of corn, wheat, and soy. This particular variety is baked with oatmeal and cinnamon, so it may as well be a bowl of human oatmeal.

Other great ingredients in Santa Snacks are pumpkin, flaxseed, carrots, and rosemary oil.

IMG_0548

Mrs. Clauss’s recipe. 😉

I love Blue Buffalo treats of the crunchy variety like Santa Snacks because they are crunchy without being so crunchy that it sounds like your dog is breaking teeth when he or she eats them. These make a crumbly mess but in the best way possible!

IMG_0551

Teton will be enjoying his Santa Snacks for the rest of this month and into January since the bag is loaded with treats.

Check out the entire assortment of Blue Buffalo treats on Chewy.com by clicking here.

Have a safe and happy holiday! See you next year!

Crazy Dog Walkies! Fit Bites

Happy Thanksgiving from this dweeb.

IMG_0303

He’s wearing his Ruffwear Sun Shower raincoat which I almost forgot we had and is clearly a necessity in Western Washington in fall/winter.

This Thanksgiving, Teton and his cousins will be munching on our November treats from Chewy.comCrazy Dog Walkies! Fit Bites.

IMG_E0316

Crazy Dog, known for their training treats – aptly named Train-Me! – is based in California and produces a line of shampoos and grooming sprays in addition to their treats.

Walkies! Fit Bites are treats designed for active dogs and are in the shape of a tiny footprint.

IMG_E0320

If that doesn’t sell you, I don’t know what will. Because, well, look at them.

Walkies! Fit Bites are as small as they look, which makes them great training treats, on-the-go treats, and treats for any size dog.

IMG_E0318

The ingredient list is longer than some, but these treats have some great things in them like flax seed, salmon oil, and carrots. One of Teton’s top five favorite foods is carrots. If you’re wondering what the other four are, in no particular order…watermelon, cantaloupe, blueberries, and Spiderman Cheese Webs.

Walkies! Fit Bites come in three flavors – bacon, chicken, and beef. Note that all of the flavors are made with chicken cartilage, so these treats are not a good option for a dog who is allergic to chicken like Teton’s pal Copper.

IMG_E0319

If you are searching for a new tiny treat to feed your dog, whether you’re working on training or would like something for activities like walking, hiking, or dog parking, all the Walkies! Fit Bites are available on Chewy.com and are $5 or less.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Dog Moms and Dads!

Blue Buffalo Boo Bars

Halloween is right around the corner! Does your dog have a costume yet?

Teton will probably just rock one of his Halloween bandanas this year. He isn’t big on costumes. 😉

What he is big on, however, are Halloween treats.

IMG_1375

This month he’s been snacking on Blue Buffalo’s limited edition Boo Bars, which are made with some wonderfully basic Fall flavors like pumpkin and cinnamon.

IMG_1376

“So good, it’s like Mummy made them.”

I mean…

IMG_1385

These two chuckleheads love them.

Boo Bars are made in the USA and have a hearty ingredient list that includes oatmeal, pumpkin, carrots, flaxseed and cinnamon. They smell great and they’re adorable.

IMG_1378

One thing I really appreciate about Boo Bars is that, while they are crunchy, they aren’t so crunchy to the point that it sounds like Teton’s teeth are breaking or it’s hard for him to chew them.

All of the dogs in my family love them – Teton, Milo, Henley, and Basil! 4 paws up! Or, wait…16 paws up! 😀

If you’re looking for a fun little Halloween treat for your dog, check out Blue Buffalo Boo Bars on Chewy.com. They’re on sale for under $3!

Fruitables Whole Jerky Treats

Throwback!

IMG_1227

Squeeeeeee! ❤

Teton, who is just as adorable now as he was then, has been eating some incredibly pungent treats from the Fruitables brand for the last couple of weeks.

IMG_1283

The Fruitables Whole Jerky Grilled Bison Strips were the first we opened.

I love that these treats are sourced and made in the USA (some companies make their treats in the USA but if you look closely they are sourced from other countries which can be sketchy town).

AND, I love that they’re made of one thing – bison!

IMG_1284

IMG_1287

These jerky strips are broken up into a variety of sizes, which is awesome because it means that you don’t have to break them yourself (of course, you can if you want to!) and that you can pick the right size for your dog, specifically.

Teton likes a lot of treats, but you know he is pickier than most! He loves these because they’re extra pungent and very crunchy. In fact, he may have jumped into the air when I dangled these in front of him the other night. 🙂

The second bag of treats we opened were the Fruitables Whole Jerky Bites Alaskan Salmon.

IMG_1281

Equally as pungent (ok, more pungent), these treats are all the same size but are thick and crunchy like the bison strips.

IMG_1294

They’re also made and sourced in the USA and are made of just one ingredient – salmon!

IMG_1282

I really like the entire Fruitables line and I even buy this brand myself, although these two packages were sent to us from our friends at Chewy.com.

Check out their line if you’re looking for something new for your dog. And, don’t forget that Chewy.com has product videos on each individual product page if you want to learn more about a specific item.

Blue Buffalo’s Earth’s Essentials Apple Orchard Clusters

Friday! What’s up, friends? I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend and that you keep enjoying the summer weather as long as we have it!

Yesterday, I did a special thing.

IMG_1054

I got a little t on my arm for my Little T. ♥

I’d been wanting to get it for a while now but have been feeling all squishy and sappy lately about Teton and how much I love him, so I figured, why not now? I wish I’d been at the tattoo shop for longer because it’s pretty fun to walk out with a big piece of art on your body, but I love my little t and every time I look at it I feel my heart smile.

Last month’s treat from Chewy.com was Blue Buffalo’s Earth’s Essentials Apple Orchard Clusters Cranberry Crunch Recipe.

IMG_1026

Blue Buffalo has a good reputation and Teton has had a number of their treats in the past. Most of the treats we’ve tried from Blue Buffalo’s line are meat-based and Teton has loved them. These treats are made with just a handful of ingredients (none of which are meat) and as far as I’m concerned, they may as well be for humans.

IMG_1027

Naturally, Teton was excited to give these a try when I opened the bag (he’s no dummy). I actually tried one first since they’re basically little pieces of granola.

IMG_1030

They’re pretty good.

To me.

Teton, on the other hand, wouldn’t even entertain them. He sniffed them and then walked away. I tried a few times (on different days, even!) to get him to at least take one, but…nope!

IMG_1034

My sister’s puppy, Basil, took one for the team. Well, ok, he took the whole bag for the team. Because he’s the only dog out of all the dogs in my family who would eat these.

Kind of a bummer since the ingredient list is so legit! Oh, well. You can’t win ’em all.

IMG_1032

Good boy, Basil.

I recommend Blue Buffalo’s Earth’s Essentials Apple Orchard Clusters Cranberry Crunch RecipeBlue Buffalo’s Earth’s Essentials Apple Orchard Clusters Cranberry Crunch Recipe if you have a dog that loves fruit and crunchy treats. If you’re not sure, opt for a treat that’s nice and meaty. 😉
