we got a package!

Recently, our friend Reilly celebrated his 7th birthday.  As part of his birthday bash, he generously gave away a HUGE box of sojos, and we were one of the lucky winners!
"sniff, sniff, sniff, sniff, snort"

I've always wanted to try sojos, which is a freeze dried pet food that you add water to before feeding. They seem like an excellent company with a really healthy product.  So, I was excited to give it a shot.


Just the mere opening of the box threw Chewy into a frenzy.  I even had to bribe him to go outside to play, because he didn't want to leave the box.
"can I have some NOW?"

"how about NOW?"

"Look how cute I am!  Pleeeeeeeeeeeease, can I have some NOW?"



Not only was there sojos food in every variety, but also a bag of salmon treats (my dogs love anything fishy) and some beef treats. Both of which were a big hit!


I think the sojos will come in handy after the dogs' dental appointment, in case they need to be on soft food for a few days.

And of course, Bree included the most gorgeous homemade card and a beautiful butterfly key (or leash!) holder.
Thanks so much Reilly!  We really appreciate you sharing your birthday bash with us!

"MOM!  Can we end this stupid photo shoot so we can EAT already?  This is doggie torture."

busy week

We had a lovely cold front move in this week, which perked everybody up!  Oreo was super playful yesterday.  This morning, we went for a nice hike.

The Preserve had added a trail loop this week, so we got to try it out.
We had the place all to ourselves this time....no cars in the parking lot.





The dogs have had a very busy week.  On Wednesday they had to have fasting pre-op bloodwork done, because they are going to have their teeth cleaned soon.  Tuesday night, we had an agility trial in the super hot weather.  Chewy hardly wanted to move.  But he was a trooper and played along.  Luckily, it wore both dogs out, and they slept in real late on Wednesday.  They definitely were not happy about not getting breakfast, but at least they weren't staring at me for three hours while we waited for our appointment.  I've never had a vet request fasting bloodwork before.  I think it was harder on Jeff than the dogs, because Jeff loves to give them cheerios in the morning.

Happy weekend everyone!  My hammock is calling me....

curious chewy

Chewy is starting to get really curious about water!   He was pulling me toward it this morning.
  Maybe, someday he'll decided to dip his toes?
 Does he wanna take a swim?
 Or maybe he just finds it a good place to meditate, kinda like me.  Maybe I should bring my yoga mat, and we could do some downward dogs?

Oreo bravely dealt with two people and a dog on our walk at the park this morning. No barking at all, just meatball eating, and a really quick recovery. He was a little stressed out afterward, but not manic. Ahh, magic meatballs!

.

A heat wave is coming in for the next few days. Since my dogs won't swim, it might be a good day to give them a bath.  Shhhhh, don't tell them.

Stay cool everybody!

good, smart doggies

Jeff needed a hand installing our new front door.
Ta Da!



Took a lot longer than expected, and I had left the dogs alone in the backyard.  After a while, I figured I better go check on them and make sure they didn't have heat stroke.

Here's where I found them.  Both staying cool under the hammock.  If I had known, I would've put two blankets under there so they could each have one.
Good, smart doggies.
