Flower Friday Walkies

Happy Flower Friday! 
How's everybody's Summer going so far? Our weather has been nice and sunny for the last week and we have been taking advantage of it by getting outside!

Let me show you what flowers Mama and I saw along my walkie this week!

The Purple Vetch has been popping up, Mama and I love seeing the splashes of purple along the trails!

The Yarrow is starting to bloom too!

From way up here I can see lots of flowers!
Look over there!!

The sweet peas are blooming!!

The bees are loving the daisy patches!

Back there along the bottom of the trail...

You can see the beautiful yellow Bird's Foot Trefoil!

...and no walkie is complete this time of year without some wild Rosies!! 
No Mama...NOT me. 
I am a sweet innocent Rosy!

Nature walkies are my most favorite!!!

We hope you all have a very Smiley Weekend!!!

Thankful we are Handsome (and Pretty) in Pink

 Last Saturday was National Pink Day AND National Flamingo Day!
At first, Jakey and I were a bit miffed Mama wanted US BOYZ to dress in pink, after all,  we are tough and macho doggies!

But after Arty and I saw the pictures...well, a guy can still be manly and wear pink, right?
We sure are thankful we look so very handsome in pink!

My brothers sure are handsome, aren't they?? I am thankful I got to wear this beautimous Flamingo dress Kinley and Brinley's Mama made for my Angel Sissy Dory!!

Rainy Tasty Tuesday! #Chewyinfuencer

Another rainy morning on our new deck here in the Pacific Northwest..Hey Mama, 
this might be the pawfect day to do our next #ChewyInfluencer review!!

 Did we mention how easy it was to still get all our Chewy.com orders when we moved? Mama just went into our account and changed our address online and ta-da, we didn't miss any of our delicious foodies! You can also call Chewy.com anytime because they have 24/7 Customer Service!!

Today we are reviewing Honest Kitchen's Turkey Ginger Spice Bone Broth. You might wonder why we are reviewing a warm treat in the middle of summer. Well here on the Northwest Coast of California, it rarely gets above 70F(21C). When is rains it usually stays in the high 50s(10C) to lows 60s(15C), pawfect weather for something nommy and warm!
Speaking of rain, it looks like it's about to start raining harder Mama, let's go inside and try some of this nommy broth!

 Wow Arty, this does look like good stuff! It's got turkey, ginger, lentils and kale. It's made with all natural, 100% human grade with no by products, preservatives or GMO ingredients!

Plus it's easy peasy to mix up!!

Just mix 1 cup warm(not hot) water with 2 tablespoons of Both Broth mix! You don't need a lot of this nommy stuff, the recommended amout for dogs under 25lbs is 1/4 cup daily!

Oh boy it smells delicious!!! Hurry up and put it down Mama!!

Mama made a short video of us enjoying our
Honest Kitchen Bone Broth Treat:

You can also watch it HERE on YouTube

We are giving this 6 paws up for warming us up on a chilly rainy day!

We received a container of Honest Kitchen Turkey Ginger Spiced Bone Broth in exchange  for our honest review. All thoughts and opinions are our very own(and sometimes Mama's very own)

We are joining the #ChewyInfluencer blog hop!

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


Magination Monday - Shih(Tzu)-rassic World!

To most people, this may look like me and my fur-iends sitting on a chair in the living room but in my imagination....

I'm in Shih-rassic World!!
(Me and Mama may be watching a bit too many dinosaur movies)

Speaking of Imagination, don't forget to join YAM-Aunty this Friday for Final Friday Fiction, click HERE for more information!


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...
