empty nest

bailey wanted to share some pictures of the hummingbirds that have nested on our patio. this is the third time we have had baby hummingbirds here and each time is just as magical as the last.

mommy hummingbird recycles her nest for each set of eggs by adding fresh fluff. daddy hummingbird had nothing to do with the nest renovation or the rearing of his offspring. mommy did it all on her own and she did a wonderful job.

product review: acana mackerel & greens singles formula dog treats #ChewyInfluencer

i think aoife planned her visit for this week because she knew we were going to be doing a product review. she was doing all kinds of tricks, trying to convince me to let her take charge of this month's review.


"let's see what we have here"

"go away bailey, i'm doing this review"

"mommy, aoife made a mean face"

this month, the wonderful people at chewy supplied us with acana mackerel & greens singles formula dog treats to review. they are freeze dried and very easy to break and very easy for bailey to chew. but be warned, they are very fishy. and when i say they are fishy, i mean
they. are. fishy.


aoife didn't seem to mind the smell at all. she gobbled up the first treat i gave her before i even had a chance to take a picture. the only way to get a shot of her eating, was to hold it for her. that way i could make her nibble it instead of gulping it.


ingredients:
whole atlantic mackerel (full of omega-3 to support skin and coat)
spinach greens (rich source of fiber)
sarsaparilla root (supports healthy digestion)
mixed tocopherols (preservative)

made in kentucky, usa
3.9 kcal per treat


these treats were a hit, here at casa chihuahua. both girls loved them and this was one of the few treats i didn't have to break up for bailey.
this product is awarded bailey's pink paw seal of approval.



btw: chewy provided us with the food in exchange for our honest opinion of the product. we did not receive any compensation for this post.

stormy weather

southern california is getting ready to be hit by yet another storm, so if you're looking for bailey, you can find her curled up beneath a pile of blankies.

win-win

when bailey gives me big marble eyes and a visible raspberry,
that's a win-win.
