Thankful Thursday

 Happy Thankful Thursday efurrybody! Arty here today with Example Number 87 why we are thankful for our Daddy!

Just about every night Daddy has salad for dinner, and guess what he puts on it??? 


 Every night I sit in this same spot and some nights...if I'm very lucky...he gives me a piece or two!!


 After a few minutes...one of my siblings see what's going on...

 I never worry though, Daddy always gives it to me first!
Can we have cheese too Daddy?!?!?!

Thanks for the cheese Daddy!!

My First Big Girl Collar! #chewyinfluencer

 Hi Efurrybody, Rosy here at the keyboard today to tell you all about the box I got from Chewy.com last week! That's right, Miss Natalie and her crew asked if I wanted to review something special for Chewy.com this month! As a #Chewyinfluencer, I jumped at the chance!  I am quickly learning Chewy.com has tons of things a gal can use! Everything from our foodies to fun bandanas and let's not forget the treats!
We can order just about anything one day and it will be on our doorsteps a couple of days later.
Easy Peasy!!

 Let's see what we have in this box....OMD, it's my very first 
 Red Dingo Vivid PVC Big Girl Dog Collar!!!

Mama picked the Pink Red Dingo Vivid PVC Dog Collar, Size Small for me, but these cool collars come in many different colors and sizes!

 How does it look Mama?? I think bright pink looks good on me and I bet you could even see me when I am hiding from you exploring in the backyard bushes!

 Not only that but I can dig and roll around in the dirt help you with the gardening. This cool collar will just wipe clean and the chrome plated hardware won't rust on my furs!! 
How cool is that?!?!

Mama says the only downside is that it is a buckle mechanism, so I can't wear it around the house when I play with my brothers(she likes something she can get off quickly) but it will be just the thing to wear on my big Blog Paws 2018 Road Trip Adventure(stay tuned Friday to read more about that)!!

Thanks Chewy.com, Mama and I give this collar 4 puppy paws and one human hand up!

As a #chewyinfluencer, I was given a Red Dingo Vivid PVC Dog Collar in exchange for my(and Mama's) true blue opinions!

Mischief Monday at the Movies

So there I was in the bedroom the other night, when Mama closed her closet door...and OMD, look who showed up!!  

I asked Mama to document the occasion for future investigation with this short movie:

 You can also watch the movie HERE


 Needless to say I was very confused on why this cute puppy was doing in Mama's closet mirror!!

Has anyone else had a run in with one of these shady characters??


Forget the Pot of Gold! #chewyinfluencer

Lepredaug Arty here today with our March  #ChewyInfluencer
review of Canidae Grain-Free PURE  Trout and Pomegranate Chewy Dog Treats! I have asked my lovely assistant Lepredaug Rosy, along with the handsome Lepredaug Jakey to help out with the review!

Thanks Lepredaug Arty! What do you think Leprechaun Jakey, are these treats full of nommi-ness?? 

Well Leprechaun Rosy,  let's see what some of the Key Benefits are:
  • They are grain free so Leprechaun Arty can have them. Plus,  they are trout flavored and this really lowers the chance of him getting the itchies 
  • They are soft which is a good thing for all of us 
  • They only have 26 calories each which Mama seems to like PLUS that means we should be able to get a WHOLE treat instead of just a piece! 
  • Best of all, they are made in the USA by a family owned business!!

WOW, only 26 calories a treat?? Let's see how big they are!

 OMD..they are as big as one of Mama's K-cups! But Jakey....why did Mama break them up?? I sure hope it's because she wants to give us LOTS of them!!

 Speaking of taste testing....
 Mmmmmm, smell that fishy goodness!!

 OMD Rosy, you are right...plus they are easy to chew with my almost 11 year old chompers!

 Totally delish!

 There you have it..Canidae Grain-Free PURE  Trout and Pomegranate Chewy Dog Treats get 12 paws up!!

We don't know why a human would like a pot of gold when they could have Boxes of  Chewy.com Blue at the end of the Rainbow! 

As a #chewyinfluencer, we were given a bag of Canidae Grain-Free PURE  Trout and Pomegranate Chewy Dog Treats in exchange for our(and sometimes Mama's) true blue opinions!

Chewin' and Sharin' on Thankful Thursday

 Rosy here on Thankful Thursday today to tell you how thankful I am for chewies!

 Nom..Nom..Nom...Sorry, today I am working on a delicious himalayan chew!
OMD, these things are good!

 I took a little break from my chew to go outside and bark at the neighbors for just 87 seconds and imagine my surprise when...
 Ummmm...Hey Arty, isn't that my chewy???
Well Rosy...you left it all alone on the couch and it called my name!!

 MAMAMA....Arty stole my chewy!!
But Rosy, it's nice to share! 
You can have it back when Arty is done with it.

Arty, Are you done with MY chewy yet??
Nom, Nom...Not yet Rosy!
Have I mentioned how thankful I am this week for sharing??

Helpin' on Tongue Out Tuesday

 Do you need some help getting this yarn packed, Mama??

 I'll just bitey it a little...


 Maybe if I bat it around with my paw...???

I is TOO helpin' Mama....
Just give me a little longer to get it  more un-tangled!



 We wanted to take a minute to apologize to everyone about all the confusing changes and construction going on here in Our Backyard lately.  Mama had these grand visions of building a beautiful new blog home all by herself
...with no help....from anybody...
At the same time, Mama had this vision of a new REAL home, bigger with more space for us to run around.

 She thought she could get our real home ready to sell AND get our blog home ready at the same time. As you might be able to tell, that's not working out so well.
Thank goodness Miss Ann at Zoolatry came to Mama's rescue and gave us a whole new look for the Spring and Summer months. We also sat Mama down and had her update things like our email address, and our "Follow by Email" widget. If you followed us before via email, you will need to "re-subscribe" and fill out the Feed Burner thingy again.

The For Sale sign on our Northy North California home goes up in two weeks...and Mama warned us that's when the craziness and packing will really begin. We are staying in the same area, probably even in the same town, but we need some more space for playing fetch and chase and stuff.

Please excuse our Mama's mess, and forgive blame
Mama if we aren't commenting as much as usual or blogging on the weekends until after all this moving stuff is done.



Happy 16th Birthday Madi!

Last Wednesday and Thursday we went for a little road trip up the Oregon Coast.
Guess who flew in on Blogville Pawty Plane to join us?

 That's right...Blogville's very own Diva, Madi, flew all the way across the country from North Carolina to join us on a fun filled couple of days Lighthouse hopping!!

 After we loaded Madi's luggage into the Rogue, we all piled in and hit the road!!

First stop on the Lighthouse tour was Battery Point Lighthouse, of course Mama was clicking pictures all over the place! Here is one with all of us in front of the lighthouse.

(Click HERE to read more about Battery Point Lighthouse)

 We knew it was quite a ways to the next lighthouse so we all settled in for the long ride.

 87 hours later we arrived at Heceta Head Lighthouse, Mama used a bit of artistic posing of us on the hills below the lighthouse since it had started drizzling a bit...
(You can read more about Heceta Head Lighthouse HERE)

 The rain stopped by the time we arrived in Newport, OR, where we were spending the night. Arty thought it would be a great idea to show Madi his ocean! We all had a nice walkie along the beach before checking into our hotel for the evening!

 After a dinner of kibble for some of us, and fresh fishies for others, we relaxed and watched some TV.

 We played a few fun pre-sleep games before we all fell asleep for the night!

 The next morning, we ate breakfast...
 ...and Mama took us out for a walkie before heading back down the coast and to see more lighthouses!!

 Unfortunately the rain picked up, along with the wind, for some of our trip. Needless to say, we told Mama we were NOT getting out of the car until it stopped raining!

 We all agreed that if we didn't have to actually get wet, we would pose for pictures...Here is a picture of Madi in front of the Umpqua Lighthouse(Mama loves the Fresnel lens in this lighthouse!)
(Click HERE to read more about the Umpqua Lighthouse)

 We stopped for awhile at the Bandon Lighthouse and explored while Mama ate lunch. 
(Click HERE to read more about the Bandon Lighthouse, also known as the Coquille River Lighthouse)

 After lunch, we knew it was time to get Madi back to the airport.
 Mama had gotten a bit turned around,  so Rosy and Madi stopped and asked Miss Goose for directions!

 Thank goodness we asked directions when we did, because it started POURING again! We almost missed this last lighthouse, the Cape Blanco Lighthouse. Thank goodness it had its light on for us!
(Click HERE to read more about the Cape Blanco Lighthouse)

We finally made it back to the Airport so Madi could get the Blogville Pawty Plane back to North Carolina before her dinner time! 

Thanks so much for coming to see us Madi, we hope you have the HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY EVER!!!

Make sure you wish Madi a Happy Birthday and hop aboard the Mad Madi Road Trip Blog Hop!
