Halo Healthsome Peanut 'n Pumpkin Treats #ChewyInfluencer

 Being a #chewyinfluencer is so much fun, but it is also a big responsibility!
Each month Sidney at sends us a product to review and they ask us to give our readers our honest to goodness opinion!! We aren't paid for these reviews either, we just get the product to try!
We always get them zippy fast!!

 This month Jakey and I (Dory) are hosting the review, this month.
Arty may join us later...but he was taking a nap when we started.

This month we are reviewing 
 Halo Healthsome Vegetarian Biscuits with Peanut 'n Pumpkin Grain-Free Dog Treats

Mama forgot to take a picture of the actual treat, but we want to let those of you who like us, don't do hard and crunchy treats,  these treats have a great combonation of crunchy/flaky. They are easily broken and/or chewed through.  
Look at the other reasons why both us pups and Mama like them:

  • Halo Healthsome treats are Made in the Good Ole US of A! 
  • They are baked (with canola oil) making them lower in fat
  • These treats  have parsley AND are just the right amount ofcrunchy, making them great for our teefies (and breath)
  • Halo treats are great for my(Dory) sensitive senior tummy!

I know...right now you are asking yourself,  so they are good for us..blah, blah...
"What do they taste like?"
After a slight altercation some discussion and coin flip it was decided that Jakey would taste them first.

 OMD, look at how he is savoring this Halo Healthsome Treat!

 I was drooling at this point...and let me tell you it was sooooo
worth the wait!!

 ...and look who woke up just in time for taste testing....
 Fair is fair though and we let Arty give them a try...

 ...and he totally loved the Pumpkin-y and Peanut-y 

We give these treats 12 Paws up for their total deliciousness!!!

Visit today to order yours!!

Flower Friday - Goodbye to Summer

With summer ending, Mama and I made one last trip to Sequoia Garden see the Dahlias before they are gone....

She spent lots of time watching this silly bee playing on a flower

Ummmm...MAMA, we are here to see the Dahlias!!

There are still dahlias blooming, but it seems there are more brown edges and wilting petals in the garden.

The Bell Flowers are blooming, but their stalks and leaves are mostly brown...

These yellow beauties seem to still be going strong...

...along with this pretty pink edged dahlia

You can see the wilting petals on the back dahlia...

...and on this sunrise colored dahlia...

This poor thing has definitely seen better days...

...but these pink petaled lovelies are looking great!

Mama and I put together a slide show of more flowers too!

We get to have snacks while we watch it, right Mama???

The good thing about the end of summer is the circle of life will help this year's blooms fertilize the grounds for more beautiful blooms next summer!

Hop aboard and show us the flowers blooming in your corner of the world (If you don't see the link here, please click HERE to go to our Hoppity page)!!


Thursday Travel Tails - New Mexico

 Welcome to Thursday Travel Tails!

 This week....
I, Black Jack Arty, Fastest (Pee)Shooter in the Southwest, will be telling you all about my adventures in New Mexico!!

Starting with the rest areas!!
I must say, the rest areas in New Mexico were pretty nice. Notice in the rest area above, they had a fenced area where I could run around LEASH FREE!! It was sooo nice to run around without having to worry about Mama pulling on the leash, or stopping to take pictures! I tell you, that woman can be a handful!!
Anyway, I digress, this is the only rest area we have seen in the many states we visited that a this type of area.  
From Mama: I usually wouldn't let Arty off leash in a "dog park situation", but there were no other dogs in the area and it was pretty clean!

 Although some of the rest areas had dusty dirt, most also had grassy areas to walk around in (like the one behind me in this picture). The grass was refreshing to my toesies after a VERY long time in the car (I may have been a tad bit tired and grumpy in these photos).

 We even saw our first alien at a rest area.  Here is the Metal Chicken from Planet Henpicked! 
Be very very afraid!!

 Mama and I always thought of New Mexico as desert-y area(and not in the greenies after dinner way) but, even in July,  these beautiful desert willow tree flowers were blooming!
Mama Here-Although the rest areas in New Mexico were clean and safe, they are not climate controlled and on a hot day they collect lots of flies/bugs. As you can tell, the grounds were also very well maintained!

Mama also made a short rest stop at McD's for some delicious French Fries before heading to the hotel!!

While driving through New Mexico on our way to Texas(and again on our way back) we stayed in the Roswell, La Quinta Inn and Suites. Located very close to the aliens and their space ships, I thought this would be a great place to relax and spend the night!

 The beds were very comfy!! Unfortunately, Mama woke me up WAY TOO EARLY when we were there!!

 Something about taking walkies before it got too hot! There was a nice sidewalk and plenty of grass for walking at this LQ!

...and OMD, Mama would not heel at all!! She wanted to constantly stop and take pictures of all the flowers we saw blooming!!
Mama here...this was a lovely LQ, and the newest one we have stayed at to date. The rooms were clean and updated with plenty of outlets. Let me take this time to mention that the one constant at ALL the LQ's where we stayed was the Wireless Internet. I ALWAYS had an excellent connection! I was able to upload pictures, live feed video and read photo intensive blogs with no lag!!

 While we were in New Mexico, I thought it would be a good idea to do some campaigning!
Aliens travel all over the universe, right?? Maybe they can help get my name out there!!


 I made sure to take advantage of any photo sessions they were ready to sit for! Can't hurt, right???

 New Mexico has some lots of pretty rock and scrub and big beautiful open skies!

 There were lovely mountains and plateaus.

 It was warm, but not too hot, and Mama and I took a couple of walks along the rocks.

 Of course, Mama found some Red Rock close to the New Mexico/Arizona Border. I think she has special radar for Red Rock, Covered Bridges and Lighthouses in her little Mama brain!


We had a great time driving through New Mexico and socializing with all the aliens. Daddy says he would really like to meet some aliens too, maybe we'll let him tag along next time!!

Next week, I will be back to show you all the fun Mama and I had while we were in Texas!!
