Momma's new baby!

Momma has a 'new baby' in the house, and she is super excited about it! Me...I'm not sure sure.



My Poppa surprised her with it yesterday afternoon, knowing how frustrated and sad she's been about her Nikon D90.



I'm not sure how I feel about this at all. I was just getting used to not having her other camera thing always pointed at me!

Savoring Summer's Flavor!

Is it just me, or is summer heading out the door way to quickly this year?! In my little corner of Pennsylvania trees are already started to burst into their fall colors and starting to litter the ground.

It makes for very pretty looking, but in the long run I am not ready for this season change yet! Summer just started, didn't it?!

Well, even if Summer is ending way to soon, no one ever said that the fantastic FLAVOR of Summer had to!

Fruitables to the rescue!

Fruitables Watermelon flavor treats - the perfect way to extend Summer (for at least 130 tastes) longer!

Now, to be honest I've never had watermelon. I don't even know what one looks like! Momma kept saying and saying that she was going to bring some home just for me to try and know what? She never did. THANKS FOR NOTHING MOM. 

Now...not having had watermelon before I had no idea what to expect these to taste like. Does watermelon taste like chicken (which I'm not supposed to have..something about smelly farts and icky poops?) ? Or maybe beef?

Well...guess there was only one way to find out!

Momma grabbed the bag, made to open it and...got distracted by looking over the ingredients!

Pumpkin, Oatmeal, Brown Rice, Tapioca Starch, Vegetable Glycerin, Potatoes, Brown Sugar, Canola Oil, Watermelon Juice, Oat Fiber, Gelatin, Sunflower Lecithin, Salt, Natural Watermelon Flavor, Phosphoric Acid, Sorbic Acid (to preserve freshness), Mixed Tocopherols (to preserve freshness)
After what must have been a billion years she gave them a nod of approval and tore open the bag.

And oh, the amazing smell that came out from that bag! (Wes' Momma: Really, I opened this bag up and they smell pretty good! Even to my people nose!) I tried to let Momma let me just stick my whole nose in the bag for a good sniff, but instead she stuck her hand in and pulled out one single treat.


Oh boy did I ever want it! Thankfully, Momma didn't make me wait to long to get it!



Oh my dog...if I thought these treats smelled good the smell had nothing on the taste! Just as soon as I finished that one I started giving Momma THE LOOK.



And it worked!

But there was a catch...


But it was ok!  Cause in the end...I got TWO more treats...and it was ok! With each treat coming in at only 2 1/2 calories Momma could give me a few at a time and not feel guilty about it!

So...what do I think about these Fruitable Skinny Mini Watermelon flavor treats?

I think Momma should give me some more!

Oh, and that she should also stock up because according to the upper left corner of the bag these things are Limited Edition!

((Disclaimer: Opinion of these treats is 100% honest and our own. Except for receiving one 5oz bag free of charge, we were in no other way compensated.)

Today we are also joining in on the Tasty Tuesday blog hop, hosted by Kol's Notes and Sugar the Golden Retriever!

Sepia Saturday


Another photo Momma already had on the computer...she cheated and edited it into sepia!

Why in Sepia?

'Cause it's Ruckus the Eskie's Sepia Saturday blog hop today!

ALSO...after looking at all the posts I've made Momma has come to realize that this is our 199th post! WOW!

Flashback Friday....

Flashback, because Momma's camera is still not working (and probably won't be until she get a new battery (At least for starters!)) and so has no fun new pictures of yours truely to share.

How far shall we flashback? How about...April! The beginning of spring, since we are starting to head into the beginning of another colorful season, Autumn!

In April the Hyacinths were blooming so pretty and fragrant!




Daffodils, too! Bright and cheery!



...and whatever these purple ground-cover flowers are!



You know what else September means? It's my half-year birthday mark! As of today I am exactly 1.5 years old.

Happy half-birthday to me!

...does that also mean Momma owes me a half-birthday cake?

(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday



Yup, Momma and I are still around! Haven't been blogging this past week because of two things!
Thing One:  Momma's camera battery is not holding a proper charge and is lasting for a grand total of about 87 seconds before going 'kaput'.

It's frustrating the heck out of Momma, seeing as she likes to take pictures and stuff.

No fun awesome pictures to show off my fun awesomeness = no real blog stuff.

Hopefully soon Momma gets this all straightened out! 

Thing Two: Momma can't seem to win with computer stuff. Issues AGAIN. I mean REALLY. WTD?!

Chewy Review! Merrick Power Bites!

Wow! Is it already SEPTEMBER already?!?! I can't believe it...someone turn back the clock!

Maybe not all the way, but at least a week back so that I can claim that this review actually happened in the correct month! BOL

Of course I'm talking about this Chewy review for these Merrick Power Bites!


Here's a bit about these treat, straight off their page from Chewy:
Merrick Power Bites are all-natural, soft and chewy treats with big taste and industry-leading levels of protein packed into every bite. They start with real deboned meat as the #1 ingredient, with added nutrition from fresh fruits and vegetables. Perfect for rewarding or training, your dog is sure to love Power Bites!

Sounds pretty tasty, doesn't it?! Well, how about a look at the ingredients, too?
Deboned Beef, Potatoes, Peas, Potato Protein, Potato Starch, Organic Cane Molasses, Vegetable Glycerin, Brown Sugar, Gelatin, Cultured Skim Milk, Sunflower Lecithin, Phosphoric Acid, Salt, Potassium Chloride, Natural Smoke Flavor, Carrots, Apples, Blueberries, Mixed Tocopherols (a preservative), Rosemary Extract

These treats are really tiny, and shaped like little stars, which make them good for training...and just anytime treating!


Look! They are so small, the fit perfectly on the tip of Momma's finger!


Now after all that one thing remains....what about the taste? Going in for the treat!



 Now friends...I'm going to be honest...these treats really didn't do to much for me. I like them...but really I can take or leave them. 

But to be more honest? Mostly leave them. 

Bummer for me...but still, that doesn't mean you shouldn't possibly maybe give them a try for yourself! They could be YOUR next favorite thing!
