Meet Basil + Plato Hundur’s Crunch Fish Jerky Fingers

Happy Monday, friends! I’m trying to be one of those people that embraces Mondays and it’s working for me today. Check back with me next week to see if things are the same. šŸ˜‰

IMG_0503

If you’re not in love with Mondays, here’s something that should cheer you up as long as you don’t have a cold robot heart. This is Basil, my sister’s new puppy. He’s a little bigger now (this was taken a few weeks ago and we all know how fast puppies grow) but still just as adorable and he and Teton are getting to be good pals. There are few things in life more amazing than puppies, am I right? ā¤

Oh, here’s another cute puppy.

Last month, Teton got another treat from his pals over at Chewy.com. This treat is quite literally the stinkiest one we’ve ever received! Which, of course, means that The Little Blogger is in L O V E with it.

Plato Hundur’s Crunch Fish Jerky Fingers Dog Treats

These delightfully stanky treats are made up of just two ingredients – cod skin and golden redfish skin. Mmmm. Skin.

IMG_0407

A 3.5-ounce bag will run you $4.99 on Chewy.com and I recommend that you give one treat at a time, because this isn’t something you want to break in half or touch for longer than you have to.

In addition to having a pungent aroma, these treats are thick and crunchy!

If you aren’t squeamish around the smell of fish, I really like Plato Hundur’s Crunch Fish Jerky FingersĀ as a treat option. They’re a great source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which means they’re good for your dog’s skin and coat. It’s nice to mix things up from your regular chicken and beef treats, too!

Thanks to Chewy.com for another great treat.

More treat reviews and a fun product review coming soon. Someone got a sleeping bag for the summer and I can’t wait to share it with you!

Happy tails…

Earthborn Holistic EarthBites

Tomorrow is J U N E and I can hardly believe it.

For the last few weeks, Teton has been munching on a new treat from our buddies over at Chewy.com.

IMG_0123

These are Earthborn Holistic’s EarthBites in the Chicken Meal Recipe.

Made in the USA, these little nuggets of goodness are grain-free and made with blueberries, spinach, molasses and carrots…among other things.

IMG_0125

They are essentially bite-sized but can also be easily broken in half to make a great training treat or a smaller treat if your dog is a little thing or if you’re watching his or her weight.

IMG_0126

Earthborn Holistic EarthBites are soft and chewy and smell great, so Teton has been a total creeper every time I’m near the bag.

IMG_0127

See what I mean?

EarthBites come in a handful of flavors and are just $5.99 a bag! Check them all out here.

Thanks to Chewy for another great treat!

Orijen Original Cat Treats

In addition to Baron Henley von Pretzel, Teton has two cat cousins: Lilly and Oliver. Lilly is camera-shy, so the star of today’s guest post is Oliver.

Oliver is a ten-year-old Norwegian Forest Cat. He loves naps, crafting, and sunshine.

Oliver 1.jpg

Oliver also loves cat food and cat treats, so he was the perfect specimen to test Orijenā€™s Original Cat Treats, made with fresh free-run poultry and wild-caught monkfish.

Oliver 2.jpg

I caught Oliver on a Monday evening, in his natural habitat.

Oliver 3

Once I popped open the bag, we had immediate interest.

Oliver 4

Maybe a little too much interest.

Oliver 5

Orijen Original Cat Treats are freeze dried, which means they arenā€™t crunchy, but are softer. These are PERFECT for Oliver, because heā€™s had to have several teeth removed and isnā€™t too keen on crunchy treats. He definitely prefers wet cat food over dry cat food, just because it is easier for him to eat. Humans will love that these treats donā€™t actually smell like monkfish.

Oliver 6

I didnā€™t actually manage to get any shots of Oliver eating the treats because he wolfed them down so fast. And then knocked over the bag to help himself to an additional 3 or 4.

Oliver 7

Oliver gives the Orijen Original Cat Treats two enthusiastic paws up. He (apparently) loves the poulty-monkfish flavor combo and can easily eat these treats. Weā€™d definitely try these again.

Thanks for the sample, Chewy!

Oliver 8

Oliver, in his younger days. Heā€™s always been a fan of Chewy.

Happy tails!

Newman’s Own & Joint Snack Sticks

Happy Monday!

monday

Why can’t we have every Monday or Friday off? I really believe that we’d all be happier, healthier, and more productive in our personal and work lives. Am I right?!

Today’s review is on a new treat from the Newman’s Own Organics line, available on Chewy.com.

Teton has been enjoying the chicken-flavored Hip & Joint Snack Sticks all week and we’re very pleased with them! Here’s why…

newmans-2

These treats come in a 5-ounce bag that’ll run you just $3.71. That’s awesome thing number one. Awesome thing number two is that they’re made of great ingredients like chicken, chickpeas, rosemary extract, turmeric, and of course glucosamine and chondroitin. (Read more about glucosamine and chondroitin in one of my previous posts here.)

Newman's Ingredients.jpg

More awesome coming your way. They’re made in the United States, they’reĀ free of corn, soy, and wheat, and they are super soft and easily broken making it a great treat for dogs of all ages.

Teton approves, as evidenced by him creepin’ on me as I took these photos.

teton

If you’ve never given your dog a supplement or treat for their hips and joints, I recommend it. Why? Why not? I, myself, take a glucosamine supplement so why wouldn’t I do the same for my little dude if it’s likely to help his hips and joints?

The Newman’s Own Organics Chicken Hip & Joint Snack Sticks are a great glucosamine and chondroitin treat to try because they’re made with great ingredients and won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

newmans-3

Now, if you’re in the market for something for your dog-loving self, walk run to TJ Maxx if you have one near you because OMG look at these adorable bags I got there yesterday.Ā ā™„

bags

The tote was $4.99 and the zipper pouch was $2!!! I couldn’tĀ not get them. I’m seriously always on the hunt for dog stuff for humans so please, please let me know if you find anything amazing! You can e-mail me directly at herdogblog@gmail.com!

Happy tails, y’all!

Wellness WellBites Treats

Happy New Year!

We rang in the New Year by doing some of this:

wellness-5

And munching on some of these:

wellness-4

Our buddies at Chewy.com sent us these Wellness WellBites treats and Teton his been thoroughly enjoying them for the past few weeks.

These soft and chewy treats are made with simple ingredients like beef, turkey, chickpeas, carrots, potatoes, and apples (to name a few).

wellness-1

Like many soft treats, Wellness WellBites are easily broken if you’d prefer not giving your smaller dog the entire thing. This also applies to those of you who are watching your dog’s weight. šŸ˜‰

I appreciate any line of treats that come in a variety of flavors, and these come in a ton! Check out all the flavors here.

teton-1

I’ll be reviewing lots more treats this month so be sure to check back soon!

Happy tails…

ACANA Lamb & Apple Treats + Shirts for the Dog Lover in Your Life

Hello! Where is that waving emoji girl when I need her? That might be my second favorite emoji of all time. šŸ˜€

It’s been a hot minute since I blogged. Yikes. Between Thanksgiving, some traveling, and getting sick, I am happy to home for the rest of the year and looking forward to the holidays!

img_8733

Today I’ve got a new treat to share with you from Chewy.com. Check out the ACANA Lamb & Apple Dog Treats.

img_8798

Oh, Ā yeah. That bag is open. And we’re about through the darn thing because Teton and his cousin Henley Pretzel have been gettin’ DOWN on these treats.

ACANA’s freeze-dried treatsĀ come in a handful of flavors including the one we tried – lamb & apple. I have to say, we got the most tame of the flavors because two of the others are pork & squash and mackerel & greens!

img_8800

Not many ingredients in these little nibblers. WeĀ ā™„ that! They’re also made in the U S A. Winning.

In my experience, freeze-dried treats are almost always a favorite for any dog. They are easy to chew and digest (it seems) and they smell super strong and delicious.

img_8802

These treats are super awesome because they are small (and easily broken to make even smaller pieces) which makes them both great treats on their own but also fun little sprinkles for the top of your dog’s food. (Sometimes we like to treat ourselves with sprinkles in this household.)

ACANA’s line of freeze-dried treats is available here at Chewy.com. They’d make a great stocking stuffer for your pup!

Ok, warning. Severe selfies ahead.

One of my favorite things to shop for and review are dog products for humans. You know…shirts, mugs, keychains, art, that type of thing. So, being that Christmas is right around the corner (seriously, people, get your shopping done before it’s too late!) I wanted to share with you a few recent purchases and one gift that may just be perfect for the dog lover in your life.

img_8709

Exhibit A. This tank from Wags & Weights. Describes my life. Is amazing. The end.

img_8795Exhibit B. This sweatshirt. A birthday gift from my homie (thanks, girl!). Also describes my life. Available here on Etsy.

img_8786

Exhibit C. This shirt that I clearly needed last weekend when I was visiting my bestie in Arizona. Available hereĀ from Farfetched Apparel, along with a zillion other adorable shirts and goodies.

Ok, selfie time has concluded.

I’m off to drink from this, my new favorite mug.

img_8729

See you next time for some more Christmas gift ideas for that dog lover in your life!

Happy tails…

Merrick’s Pappy’s Pot Roast Dinner

This past week, Teton enjoyed Merrick’s Chunky Grain-Free Pappy’s Pot Roast DinnerĀ wet food over his dry food.

merrick1

I love Merrick canned food for Teton and have been buying it for him in a number of their fun recipes since he was about a year old. He doesn’t get canned food over his dry food every time he eats, but it’s great to mix it up once in a while when that same old dry food getsĀ boring.

Our buddies at Chewy.com sent us an entire case of this stuff! Teton isn’t complaining.

halloween-2

(Observe Halloween bandana #1…monster mash.)

Merrick’s Paddy’s Pot Roast Dinner, aside from having the best name ever, is loaded with great ingredients like beef liver, potatoes, and carrots. It looks so much like real pot roastĀ that one of the first reviews of it on Chewy.com is entitled “looks like pot roast.” šŸ˜€

Skeptical? Take a gander.

merrick4

This is the kind of food that the husband and I reference when we make statements like “Teton eats better than we do.”

Look at that beef. Those potatoes. The whole carrots.

Paddy’s Pot Roast Dinner is easily cut with a fork right out of the can, which is what I did with the carrots and potatoes before feeding it to Teton. One lick of the spoon before I set his bowl down and he was 100% on board, which is great because he’s been picky with his food lately and more often than not leaves it in the bowl for almost the entire day before eating it.

If you’re in the market for some canned food, give one of the Merrick flavors a try. Chewy.com has SO MANY flavors (check them out here) and they are just under $30 for a case of 12 cans. If you aren’t sure whether your dog can get through that many, split the case with a friend. Sharing is caring.

Paddy’s Pot Roast Dinner is probably Teton’s most favorite flavor but he also like Grammy’s Pot Pie, Cowboy Cookout, Turducken.

Big thanks to Chewy.com for hooking us up again this month!

Teton had a great October. Now that the weather is cooler he spent some days with his pals Ā Biju and Kyra at work.

teton-and-biju

teton-and-kyra

Pretty good life they’ve got, I think.

October comes to a close tomorrow with Halloween, so Teton will wear his glow-in-the-dark bandana (thanks, Auntie Morgan!) and steer clear of chocolate. šŸ˜‰
