product review: nutro kitchen classics #ChewyInfluencer

did you see our instagram post today? if you were wondering who was hiding behind those blue chewy glasses, it was aoife! BOL


this month was double fun because we have double dogs tasting and reviewing double flavors! (supplied by our good friends at chewy.com of course.)


this month we are reviewing nutro kitchen classics premium loaf variety pack: grass fed lamb & brown rice dinner AND slow cooked chicken, rice & oatmeal dinner canned dog food. the case comes with 6 cans, 3 of each flavor. if your pup likes variety, this is what they've been craving.


bailey is trying the chicken dinner.

"mmm"

next was aoife's turn. she's getting the lamb. oh, the anticipation!


ok eef. give it a taste.

"nom nom"

they're a hit!
these foods are perfect for dogs with sensitive stomachs (like aoife). with limited ingredients, it reduces the chances of food sensitivity and helps make digestion easier. they are made in the usa and are free of GMOs, corn, wheat & soy, artificial colors, flavors, & preservatives.

note: the picture shown on the chewy website is not accurate. this is a loaf style dinner, not a chunks with gravy style, as they show it to be.


both girls loved both flavors and award both recipes bailey's pink paw seal of approval (one paw for each flavor)



disclaimer: i received these goodies free of charge from chewy.com in exchange for my honest review.

under the plum tree

our days are still pretty hot (90's) but around 7-7.30pm it's tolerable (low 80's) outside. that's usually when we like to go outside. i get my watering done and bailey keeps me company. it's also a good time for picture taking. with the setting sun, the lighting is just right.

rocking chair

aoife has learned that when she sees me with a camera, treats are close at hand. so when she saw me taking pictures of this rocking chair (to post it for sale) she figured treats would be involved. she came over and asked to be in the photo. because, you know, camera = treats. she sat like a pro and wasn't even scared that it was a rocker! and yes, treats were given.

what's wrong with this picture?


can you see what's wrong?
at first glance, maybe even second glance, you might not notice,
but the thing is,
I DON'T HAVE A CAT!
so why is this cat looking in my backdoor?
i don't know! BOL

{this moment} see beautiful: it's the little things

i never have to go far to see beautiful. i see it every single day in my own garden. this post is concentrating on the beautiful little things.

like this beautiful little honeybee feasting on my agapanthus,


and this beautiful little ladybug that was wandering in my plum tree,


and this beautiful little mockingbird we found on our front lawn last week!
new life is especially beautiful.


and of course, my beautiful little bailey.

my kitchen helper

as i was preparing dinner last night, i looked down to find bailey standing there, afghan and all. i was making a chicken casserole and she was no doubt hoping for a kitchen disaster that would end with all the chicken falling to the floor. well there was no disaster but i may have "accidentally" dropped one or two pieces. and being the helpful chihuahua that she is, she was more than happy to clean them up for me. thanks for your help, little bailey. BOL

product review: taste of the wild southwest canyon grain-free canned dog food #ChewyInfluencer

sorry for the delay in getting this review up, somehow it fell by the wayside, but here it is!

"look at me! i'm the queen of the world! now get me down."

today we are reviewing taste of the wild southwest canyon grain-free canned dog food sent to us by our friends at chewy.


it is a stew style food with gravy that bailey liked right away. the chunks were a little big for her so i did have to cut them into smaller pieces but they are soft and very easy for her to chew. i'm sure if aoife were here, she'd just swallow the chunks whole, BOL, but that's not how bailey rolls. i've been giving her a little every day, as a side dish, and she has really been enjoying it, down to the last drop of gravy.


some quick facts:
wild-caught boar, sourced from a supplier in texas
vegetables and fruits supply antioxidants
peas & chickpeas instead of potatoes, have a lower glycemic index
peas are also highly digestible energy
grain-free
made in the usa

bailey awards southwest canyon grain-free canned dog food her pink paw seal of approval

panic free 4th of july

yesterday went exactly according to plan. we took bailey out for a long leisure stroll and she got totally pooped. when we got home, i gave her another bath. i know i just gave her one but she's been really itchy lately so i gave her another. i made her favorite dinner (ground sirloin) and with a full tummy she went right to sleep. all of our planning payed off and we had a panic free 4th.

the calm before the storm

don't you just hate it when you are sitting quietly at the computer, soft music playing in the background, pup sleeping peacefully on your lap, when all of a sudden there are bombs bursting in air? ya me too. besides giving me a heart attack, it throws my little bailey into a tizzy. why do people have to do that? ever since bailey came into our lives, i dread the 4th of july (and new years eve). she goes into a panic that lasts for hours.


because a pooped pup is a happy pup, tomorrow afternoon we will be going for a long walk. when evening hits, i will try the thundershirt. i've heard great things about it. hopefully it'll help, at least a little. plus we will have classical music on the tv, windows will be closed, air conditioner will be on, and the curtains'll be drawn. if i forgot anything, please let me know! is the 4th of july the worst day ever for your fur babies or are they cool with it?
