Hello Bentley!!!!!

Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard to get Humphrey a goodie.  When she got there she found Soft Baked Applesauce and Oatmeal  Dog Snacks and poor little Humphrey had one.

       It's that wonderful time of the month when our pups received another goodie box from Mr. Chewy. (  This box was extra special, it came just in time for the arrival of our new adoptee, Bentley.  Knowing that Humphrey wasn't necessarily going to be thrilled by the newest addition to the pack, we chose our taste testing treats carefully hoping to please him.  Sadly, we chose wrong.

       Old Mother Hubbard (not the nursery rhyme) is a natural dog treat company.  We tried their Soft Baked Dog Snacks in Applesauce and Oatmeal flavor.  As the package says, they do smell pretty good, like an oatmeal cookie fresh out of the oven.  We confidently passed out one to each of the pups, feeling quite certain that they would love them.  However, Humphrey, in his rotten mood, stated that they were not soft.  This was true, they were not even moist in the center like the package promised.  Despite his complaints, he scarfed it down rather than let one of the other dogs have it.  Brando took a nibble and then said that he was leaving some for the cat. (How polite.)  The treat kept little Spencer busy for a while, but he seemed to enjoy it.  Bentley, who is a Great Pyrenees-Maremma puppy and therefore destined to be a Herculean sized dog, really loved them.  He crunched and munched and forgot what he was doing, and then crunched some more, and then begged for another one, and then found the unplugged vacuum cord (but that's a story for another time).  We decided that Humphrey was just being a spoiled sport and wanted to ruin everyone's fun this month.  However we do feel that these treats would be more appropriate for our larger fur friends.

       Humphrey declined a closing comment for this blog post and is sulking in the corner again.  Brando is far too busy digging a hole to be bothered now.  Spencer was about to say something, but he is now being dragged across the floor by Bentley, who suddenly decided that it is time to play.  So it is left to me to tell you what an amazing company Mr. Chewy is (, and what a fun website they have (, and how many cool products they have (, and how each box they send is carefully packed ( haven't you clicked the link yet?!?).

       On a closing note, Bentley is super excited to join in on the blog and can't wait to share his adventures with you!

We would again like to thank Mr. Chewy for letting us have this opportunity.  Thank you!!

Bentley says 'Hello!'

Directions: Feed As A Treat

Another month, another goodie surprise for our pups!  It seems that the little leprechaun at thought that Humphrey and Brando deserved more treats!  This months mouth-watering munchies were called Sojos®.  They are a natural and healthy snack for your favorite pooch.  While they come in a variety of flavors, the leprechaun chose to send our boys the lamb and sweet potato flavored.  While the dogs enjoying the flavor, we humans were enjoying the fact that Sojos® doesn't use any ingredient that aren't pure and simple.  Their treats are made or real meats and peanut butter or strawberries, not extra hydrogenated moogie-moogies.  Their treats are also grain and gluten free, making then gentle on grain sensitive tummies.  It is also nice to not have to worry about artificial coloring or flavors, or unnecessary calories being added. (Humphrey has a tendency to pack on the pounds if we don't watch carefully.  Shhhh! Don't tell him!!!)  While Humphrey crunched and munched his way to happiness, Brando was impressed by the packaging.  He thought that the cute yellow and brown box made the treats look even more appealing.  Our dogs decided that the leprechaun made an excellent choice sending Sojos® treats, after that we didn't hear another peep from them. sent yet another perfectly packaged box.  Hooray for no broken biscuits!  Their website has every possible pet need.  On their site you will find the necessary, the frivolous, and the I-didn't-know-I-needed-that-but-I-do items.  Brando says you shouldn't even finish reading this because you're missing out on the fun! So click the link instead!
       For those who've not taken Brando's good advice, we hope that all our fur friends have a fantastic March, a fun (and safe) Mardi Gras and St. Paddy's Day.  The pups would also like to thank Mr. Chewy again for letting us take part in his taste-testing project.
Now, click the link-- --you know you want to and you won't regret it!
"Thank you, Mr. Chewy!!!"

Mr. Chewy Taste Testing

        When we were asked if Humphrey and Brando would like to be taste testers for the Mr. Chewy company ( ) we were all thrilled. You cannot imagine the pups excitement when  their package showed up at the door.  Inside the box was a full sized bag of Greenies® treats for our pups and cat treats from the Orijen company.  Humphrey and Brando love Greenies® treats and so do we.  They help promote dental health in a safe and low calorie way. They come in all sizes too, so that the biggest or the tiniest of dogs can enjoy a yummy treat and fresh breath, and with February being dental health month these are the perfect goodies!  We asked Humphrey for a critique, but he was too busy chewing to answer.  I think that its safe to assume that's a ten paw treat!
        Mr. Chewy ( also included treats for Beetle, our newly adopted cat.  They were Original flavored Cat Treats from Orijen.  The Orijen company strive to make products for cats that are created based on a cats carnivorous diet.  They create products from fresh meats from local areas.  In a way, they are a kind of natural grocer for kitties.  The Original flavor treats consist of 100% fresh, freeze dried chicken, turkey, and flounder.  Beetle gave then 10 paws and asked for more.
        We love the Mr. Chewy website,  It's easy to use and they have everything your fur friends could possibly need.  They sell food and treats, pet medication, beds, collars, toys, grooming necessities...anything you will ever need for your dog or cat.  Orders always arrive fast and neatly packaged.  (No broken dog treats here!) is certainly one of our favorite websites and we would like to thank Mr. Chewy for letting us take part in this taste testing experience.
Humphrey recommends that you click this link right now so that you don't miss out on his favorite website and all the fantastic products they have.

Thank you, Mr. Chewy!

On The Udder Side Saturday

 Scarlett and Pepper
Scarlett is a little sassy!
Our newest girls joined our family Sept 27th.  In a nutshell, these ladies where living in filth, bugs, and dead birds. We thought we were rescuing one, we ended up with both girls, and a rooster.  Our son tried to save two hens, but the owner wouldn't give them up. (We even tried money.) The hens were living in a crate two feet tall, and about two feet long.  Their feet were covered in feces over an inch deep, and they were housed with a dead hen.  It may have been Hell on earth.  Brando and Humphrey would like to pass along this message: All animals big and small, deserve a happy, healthy, life.  As for the person we adopted the animals from...well, I'm sure you can complete this thought.
