Monty gets a package!

...and from a secret admirer!
Whose it from, Momma?
It's all mine!
Inside there was a note...
Monty was very excited!
I know who it is!
Inside was a fun coloring activity for Mr. Monty - with his name on it!  :)
Harlow in the meantime couldn't believe none of this was for her...
Monty is very happy with his surprise!
Momma, can you help me color dese?
Of course I will, Monty!

We need to send a big thank you to Foster Momma Candy Monty's Secret Admirer for his wonderful gift!

August Chewy Review

It's that time again!  It's time for the August review!
The box has arrived!
 This month we decided to try Castor & Pollux's Good Buddy Cheddar Cheese Flavor treats.
 Why did we chose these treats?
Cuz I is a good buddy...
I iz good buddy too!
These treats are made with whole wheat flour, rolled oats, canola oil, dried cheddar, dried whey product, dried eggs, dried kelp and rosemary extract.  That's it. 

They are larger than what we usually gives our pups as treats - roughly 1 3/4 inch.  Keep this in mind if you have smaller pups.
They are also extremely hard and crunchy (in case you have pups with dental issues or trouble chewing).  Harlow and Monty couldn't do their usual crunch-and-swallow routine, these actually required some chewing.
I can see these lasting us for some time, mainly due to their size and hardness.  They aren't a the kind of treat you can give as a reward.  The pups love them though!

Our ratings:

Taste:  Our pups loved them!  Both Monty and Harlow are finicky.  If it seems healthy they won't touch it.

Smell:  They smelled good enough for us to eat.

Size:  A little too big for us - I could see giving them a few too many during the day.

Consistency:  Very hard, which isn't a problem with our pups.

Would we try these again?  I'm not sure, but that is due to our preference not the product.  Our pups are very treat oriented and I like tiny treats so that I can give them a couple in a row for good behavior.

Throwback Thursday

We decided to try a new weekly feature called "Throwback Thursday".  Over the nearly 5 1/2 years we've had this blog we've accumulated hundred's of photos.  I'd like to share those, as well as some of the photos and Photoshops from our favorite posts.

So this week, I decided to go with one of my all time favorite Photoshops of our boy Sam!  For those of you who are Facebook friends with me, you will recognize this as my profile pic.

Harlow's Birthday!

Today is Harlow's birthday!

Our Princess is 2 years old - and she knew it was a special day from the moment she woke up...
(Add thumping tail sound effect...)
Like any little kid, she couldn't contain her excitement.
Iz my birthday!
Is my birthday!

Is my birthday!
 (At this point, Monty wanted rescuing...)
Iz my birthday!
We started off the morning with breakfast cake.  Thank you, Khyra and Mom!

Drop it!  Drop it, Momma!
I wasn't quick enough to get photos of them snarfing their breakfast cake.  Harlow also got a squeaky banana dog from Khyra's Auntie Di - which Monty promptly stole.
Iz mine...
After breakfast was eaten and morning naps taken, we moved into the kitchen to make a peanut butter cake.  Of course, the best part of any cake is licking the spoon.

We sat the pups down for a few photos...
Whoa, Dad, you iz gonna set my fuzz on fire!
I'll just sit back here, away from da fire...
Can we'z eat now?
Monty, as you can tell, was quite happy he didn't have to wear a hat.
Neener, neener, Harlow!
We cut the cake...
...and Harlow learned the value of taking small bites:
After which we moved onto presents.
Whatcha got dere, Momma?  (Monty chose this moment to burp.)

Harlow got a float -we are going to try dock diving with her.
Dese mine!
Harlow wanted a little privacy to enjoy her new toy.
 Harlow's 2nd Birthday was a lot of fun!  Thank you everyone for your kind birthday wishes for our little girl! 

Our good friend, Sugar, is celebrating her 13th birthday today!  Head on over and  leave her birthday wishes.  Happy Birthday, Sugar!

Don't forget to head on over to AZGRC's Wine Label Contest and vote for Monty and Harlow.  Each vote is $1 and you can vote as often as you want.  Harlow is #18 and Monty is #25.  All proceeds go towards the medical cost of rescued pups!  Voting ends August 24th.  Thank you!
