And it continues on...

...Momma's blog laziness, that is. This time, though, it's not because she's been "busy". This one is different, and  it kinda came out of nowhere and blindsided her - a complete lack of motivation.

And not just for the blog, it seems so have spread to most things. She hasn't picked up her camera, except for a snap or two, in two weeks! She also hasn't been banging around in the kitchen like she tends to like to do....

This is no good!

There is good news, though! Just today she grabbed her camera and we went out for awhile with it AND she also did kitchen-stuff. Though nothing for me, HUMPH. 
I'm crossing my paws and hoping that this signifies the end of this...whatever it was!

Hope all has been well in Blogville....with this mood Momma hasn't exactly been helping me to keep up with all that's been going on with my friends here.

She's been lazy!

Image
That's right, my Momma has been exceedingly lazy about my blog again lately! Though I've nose-punched her, and whined at her and even gave her my very-best eyes she just has been overlooking it all this past week...and the excuses she's given!

I'm sorry Wesley, I have to go to work.
I'm sorry Wesley, I'm sick with the plague that's going around work.
I'm sorry Wesley, I have to go visit my Dad for awhile.
I'm sorry Wesley, but I have to bake these sugar cookies.
...and now I'm still sorry, but I now have to decorate them all.
I'm sorry Wesley...the internet isn't working.

HA! Does she think I buy any of those? Just lazy, I tell you!

She hasn't even taken any proper pictures! FOR SHAME!


BUT just because Momma's been busy and/or unable to use the internet super lazy doesn't mean I've forgotten my furiends here...or that she's forgotten about my Caru giveaway, which officially ended this past Tuesday!

Now it was going to…

More Caru deliciousness!

Image
You all remember last Tuesday when I did a review on Caru's Soft and Tasty Duck Recipe treats? If you didn't, you should do on over and check it AND the giveaway I'm hosting for ONE FREE BAG of those same treats out...go ahead! I'll wait. 
Back? Good!

As I mentioned in the other post, those treats aren't the only yummy things that Caru carries...they almost carry a few varieties of better then just like homemade natural stews!

When I received the delicious duck treats to try, I was also sent not one but TWO of these stews to try for myself!


I was sent both a Chicken variety and a Beef variety, but on top of those two flavors they also have one made with Turkey and one with Pork! Yummy!

Here's what the Caru website has to say about their line of stews:

Uncanny nutrition. Uncanny taste.
Absolutely grain free.
At Caru, we’re as passionate about the health and happiness of pets as you. That’s why we start with real meat or poultry as the first ingredient (no ingredients…

Some 'stray' mischief!

Picture this! My momma leaves me home alone ALL day to go to this work thing she does, then when she comes home it’s ‘ok Wesley, let’s get you out to potty!’ and then once we come back in she puts some food in my bowl – not even the good stuff! – and runs out the door again!

THEN! After being gone for forever, when she comes home she calls for my aunt Sarah – doesn’t even look at me – goes back outside and I don’t get to see her for another leaving me alone and heartbroken…again!

When she finally comes back in to say hello to me it’s not from the front door like she went out, she’s comes up from the basement…smelling like ANOTHER DOG!

Finally she explains and apologizes to me.

When she left she went to go see her poppa, who is currently staying an hour away in a skilled nursing/physical rehab place. She left in a hurry so she could get back to me in a hurry. Then, on her way back she saw him.


He was wandering around on the side of the road – a pretty well used one – with no human in si…

Sepia Saturday

Today I'm joining in with my buddy Ruckus the Eskie's Sepia Saturday blog hop!


Grumbles and other things

Image
Dogs in a group are considered a pack. Deer in a group, a herd.

There are some interesting words out that to signify a group of one type of animal when all together. 
Some are more well known, like the two examples given above.
Then of course there are those not so well known ones.
Like a grumble of pugs. (((Stella, Margaret and Gussie...does this make you guys grumbly?! BOL)
My momma came across this info yesterday and it thoroughly sparked her interest! If there pugs in a group had a special term…what about other dogs?!
Sadly…there weren’t so many other dogs with their own special word, or at least none that Momma found. The ones she did find were:A leash of greyhounds.
A pomp of Pekingese  

That’s not to say that even though there weren’t to many specific names for single breed groups of dogs that there weren’t lots of other interesting animal group names! 

Here were some of our favorites!



A stand or flamboyance of flamingos.
A kindle of kittens.
A clowder of cats. 
A paddling of ducks. 
A rafte…

Wordless Wednesday

Image
...I have to add some words!

Check out yesterday's post here to enter a giveaway to win yourself some yummy Caru treats!

Caru should mean 'delicious'!

Image
...well, it should...but it doesn't. What the word caru, which is Welsh, actually does mean is 'to love'. Isn't that a pretty word?
It's also the name of the company who's treat bars I'm going to share with you today!



Here before me I have a bag of Caru Duck recipe Soft and Tasty Bars. These bars are made with  USDA inspected duck, blueberries and cranberries. Yum, what a delicious sounding combination! Of course there are a few other things in there as well to hold all that deliciousness together, here's the list of everything you can find in these treat bars:

Duck, Potato Flour, Beet Molasses, Blueberries, Cranberries, Vegetable Glycerin, Dried Cultured Skim Milk, Mixed Tocopherols (a preservative).

And that's it! Just as easy a list as my Momma always likes to see when giving me a treat! Notice also what these bars DO NOT contain: wheat, gluten, corn, soy or animal-byproducts...which means they are safe for pups that may suffer from some of those …
