STELLAAAAAAAA!!!

Today Winter Storm Stella came to visit.
Snow covered me!

It started snowing around 10 last night, and continued on all day today until about 3 pm.

We got nearly one-mini poodle high worth of snow.

Honey, you loved snow so if this is you...we miss you but enough with the snow already!

Don't think I'll be doing any exploring outside of the paths that Mom, Dad and Uncle Steve have shoveled for awhile...



One possible good thing? If the roads aren't completely clear tomorrow Mom is going to reschedule my grooming appointment with Aggie.

Cross your paws for me for some still not-clear roads! BOL

Our thanks

 ...to all our friends for the comments and love sent our way. 

We can feel it, and it most definitely helps ease the pain and sadness we are feeling from the unexpected loss of our dearest friend Honey.




Mom isn't ready to share what happened, and she says she may never be so we apologize to Blogville for not sharing anything further. 

What we do want everyone to know is that she did not suffer before making the trip over the Rainbow Bridge. 

As a matter of fact, we are pretty sure that she's trying to signal to us that she's just fine over there - chasing down chipmunks (she could never catch them here!) , deading all the stuffies, and squeeking all the squeeky toys - by sending us some of her favorite type of weather today.

Snow.

Heavy-Hearted


How could we know,
Oh, dearest friend, that
Now would be the time for goodbye?
Even though you've passed over that bridge
You are forever near in heart.

Signs, signs...everywhere there's signs!

 Or so my mom was signing earlier as we were in the yard. I had no idea what she was going on about. I didn't see any signs. 

Then she told me, "Wesley! Stop and look by your feet!"


I still really didn't see anything..except for maybe these weird little red nub things sticking out from the ground. 

I looked at Mom and asked "These things?"

She excitedly told me "YES!"


She told me then that these little red nubbins were the beginnings of my grandma's peony plants, and one of the signs that spring was getting nearer.

She asked if I could see anymore signs, because once you look hard enough there were more.

 

So I looked around.

At first I really didn't see much...and then I saw these tiny little leaf buds starting on the Japanese lilac bushes!


And out in the front yard, there were buds on the Rhododendron bushes!




Mom was right....

Signs, signs everywhere there's signs....of spring!

Dr. Seuss

Oh, dear friends here in Blogville
(and other places quite far)
Today is the day which we 
honor a star!

Not a star in the sky, no
 he lived here on Earth
writing stories for children
which filled them with mirth.

He gave us The Lorax, The Grinch, and The Whos,
The Cat in that Hat, and Thing One and Thing Two!
There's Mavin K. Mooney, who won't go away
and Horton the Elephant, saving the day. 

Oh! The Things You Can Think,
Oh! The Places You'll Go 
when you open a book written by...
well, you know!

Much more did he give us, 
then what's mentioned here
if I were to continue
I could go on for years!

Dr. Seuss was a man
who proved reading IS fun,
not just for adults
but for everyone!

We're just going to pretend like it's still February for a moment, ok?

...and the reason we're going to do that is so that I don't feel bad that my Chewy review is late! BOL

So today is February, got it?

Most definitely NOT March 1st, like the calendar claims.

So for this month of February mom chose a new tasty thing from Chewy for me and Honey to try. She saw it and, despite everything looking super fun or tasty, knew it was for us for this month.

Ta-da!

Our very own pasta, thanks to this bag of Rachael Ray Nutrish Pawsta Beef Stuffed Riggies Recipe Dog Treats.

See, Mom knew this was THE treat for us for this month of FEBRUARY because my Dad very-much shows his Italian heritage when it comes to pasta. He will eat it all day, everyday. Same with his brothers, my uncles Steve and Kevin.

But anyway, that's NOT important stuff to know...what is important is this Pawsta itself!



Mom opens the bag and...a wild Honey appears!

Now before Mom gives anything to Honey and I, she always checks out the ingredients. She's not much a fan of seeing huge, nonsensical words in the list - as a matter of fact if too many appear she won't even get it! So what exactly is in these treats?

  1. Beef, Ground Rice, Pearled Barley, Rye, Vegetable Glycerin, Potato Protein, Brown Rice, Rice Syrup, Tapioca, Brown Sugar, Oatmeal, Gelatin, Water, Flaxseeds, Poultry fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Natural Flavor, Sunflower Lecithin, Salt, Citric Acid (a preservative), Paprika Extract, Beef Stock, Sorbic Acid (a preservative), Potassium Chloride, Carrot Extract, Titanium Dioxide (color), Rosemary Extract.
Hmmm...not bad...not bad at all! Even I know what pretty much all of that is!

Important as that all is...we all know what the super most important thing is, right?

How do they taste?!



They are a bit chewy, which I really like. I like crunchy treats too...but softer, chewier ones always come number one.

On top of being chewy...they are also just really, really yummy!

Honey and I both enjoyed these Rachael Ray Nutrish Pawsta Beef Stuffed Riggies Recipe Dog Treats very much, and we look forward to eating up the rest of the bag!
