Flower Friday at Elk River Marsh

Happy Flower Friday!!
Lately, Mama has been looking trails close to our new house. Today we are going to share her favorite walk so far, it may look a little familiar because it's we went for our family walk you saw yesterday!

It's very peaceful in the mornings, she saw lots of Coastal Hedgenettle. The pinks peaking up among the greens really say Summer, don't you think?

Then she saw these cool flowers. They look like little circles of honeysuckle, don't you think? Mama says she looked them up and they are called Italian Woodbine.

What's that I see Mama...is it...

a Rosy...like ME??

The wild rosies are almost as pretty as me and Mama says they smelled sooooo good!!

She saw a few of these pretty yellow flowers...at first Mama thought they were Yellow Lupine, but the petals and leaves are different, these are called Glandweed!

We are closing this week with this gorgeous pink ground cover.  Mama has looked and looked, but even her new APP couldn't identify this...Does anyone have any idea what this plant is  called??

We hope you all have a fun filled and Sunshine-y Weekend
and remember...

Thankful for Summer Walkies!

Arty here today to share how thankful we all are for

 During summer, especially June and July, we get lots more sun and it stays light outside a whole lot longer and do you know what that means???

 After dinner Summer walkies!!!

 Daddy, Mama, Rosy, Jakey and I get to hit the trail for nice 
evening strolls!

 Jakey LOVES when we do things as a pack!

 ...and as you might be able to tell by my big smileys,
so do I!!

Are you enjoying the summer so far??
Gotta run!!!

Tasty #ChewyInfluencer Tuesday

Are you ready for Summer?! We can't believe summer starts on Thursday, we are SOOOO ready! We thought the first week of Summer would be the pawfect week to do our first #chewyinfluencer review!

 Do you know we have been a Chewy Influencers for almost FOUR years now! Time has just flown by because we are having such a good time with Chewy.com! They have amazing customer service, fast delivery AND thank goodness for Autoship or who knows when our foodies would get ordered!!

To celebrate the first week of Summer, we ordered the Peanut Butter & Honey flavored  Cesar's Softies to enjoy while playing in Our Backyard! They are only seven calories a treat so Mama doesn't feel guilty giving us a few throughout the afternoon for training rewards or just for being cute!

What do you think, Rosy?
Oh My Dog, Arty, I can smell the peanutty butter and honey!!!

What do you think, Jakey? Don't they smell Nommy?!
They DO smell nommy, and they are pretty big too, almost as big as my nose!! 

Come on Mama, let's give them a taste!!
Gimme Mama!! Mmmmmmm, tastes delish!!

Nargaug eeeeyyeeee Aaaarhhhgree Arty!

Can I have two if I sit up pretty, Mama???

We give these nommy treats 12 paws up and plan on enjoying lots of them this Summer!!

We are joining the #ChewyInfluencer blog hop!

Thanks so much to Koru Bear and Pawsitively Pets for hosting!


Staying Healthy with Humarian!

While Mama was visiting the BlogPaws Conference back in April, she had the pleasure of talking to the folks over at Humarian
about some of my "issues". They introduced her to their unique probiotic called Probonix. She thought it would be the pawfect fit for me!

Why me? 
Well, let's sit back and take a look!

I (and Mama) am a #HumarianAmbassador and along with other benefits,  have received a bottle of Probonix for me (and one for Mama) in exchange for telling our readers about our experience with Probonix by Humarian. Humarian is not responsible for the content of this post. The opinions in this post are those of us here at LLB only.

As some of you may know, I have a few skin and attitude issues. First, my itchy allergies that have me scritchin' day and night would make any pup grumpy. Add to that the fact I need to have a limited-ingredient, high protein diet. This type of diet has resulted in me getting, let's say, a bit backed-up, making me even more grumpy!  

What's a poor guy like me to do?

Mama thought Humarian's Probonix sounded like just what I needed! Mama and Daddy have been using a probiotic for the last couple of years, but never thought about trying one for us pups. She got to work researching Humarian and how Probonix might help me.

How could Probonix help me and other pets??
Here are just a few of the things Probonix can help with (make sure to visit Humarian to learn more!):
  • Digestive Issues
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease)
  • Dental Health Issues
  • Allergies
  • Yeast Infections
  • Dermatitis 
 See those red circles? They are all issues I used suffer from all the time. I started taking Probonix on June 1st and since then, my pawrents and I have noticed a marked improvement on my yeast infections along with my digestive issues/constipation leading to a happier and more active me!  Probonix also helps to promote a healthy immune system which, in time, we hope will alleviate my itchies!

 Why Probonix???
Easy peasy...
  • Made in the USA
  • 100% Natural Ingredients
  • 100% (Non GMO) Beef Liver Flavor
  • Probonix delivers more live probiotic bacteria to the gut through their proprietary acid carrier! (you can read more about this HERE)  

Plus it is REALLY easy to use!!
Breakfast and Dinner time are a free for all here so, to insure I get the correct dose, Mama puts 6 drops (Dogs over 30 pounds would get 8 drops) on my favorite cookie, she lets it soak in a few minutes and then....


For Mama it is even easier... 8 drops in her morning water or, if she's running late, she will put the drops directly in her mouth. She says the grape flavor tastes pretty good!

One bottle lasts 30 days too, making Probonix  very affordable!!

 As a #HumarianAmbassador if you are interested in purchasing Probonix you can click HERE, and if you enter LLBPUPS in the discount box, you'll receive 20% off of your order!!

Do you take a Probiotic?? We would be interested in hearing how it has helped you or your pawrents!!


Flower Friday in Our Backyard(and Front Yard)

Deck Sun Puddle at Our New House!

 Last week, Pigeon asked if we had any sun puddles at our new house! Well...let me tell you, we not only have sun puddles throughout the house...but we are so very thankful to have a great big deck sun puddle in the backyard!!

 Of course...the sun does have to be shining, but now that it is almost summer the skies have gotten a bit clearer..and we have been spending a BUNCH of time out there!
 It's nice for laying out and hanging with each other.

 Or enjoying a nice breeze....

 Or maybe a nap...

 Maybe chatting with Mama, like Rosy.

 There is even easy access to restroom facilities and a play area!

 Best of all...

We can watch everything going on in the forest behind us!!

We are soooo very thankful for our Deck Sun Puddle!
