Thankful for Rainy Day Activities!

Today we want to say how very thankful we are for rainy day activities. It has been raining here for the past week straight...and not the drizzly rain  that stops after awhile, we can tolerate that on short walkies. It has been the steady, Mama has to make us go out to go potty rain! Anyways, my favorite rainy day activity is napping...I could nap all day long! Besides naps, I enjoy a couple of photo shoots, and maybe a game of evening "house-fetch". 
I sure am looking forward to some sunny sun puddling as soon as the rain goes away and the sun comes back!

I, Arty, love a good chewy! My favorite at the moments is this nommy water buffalo horn!

It can keep me busy for an hour or so at a time! Like Jakey, I also love to nap and Mama says I am her go to guy for modeling sessions! Nothing wrong with getting treats while looking at the flashy beast!

What's that your chewing on Rosy?

I'm still working on my Ziwi Venison bone, Arty...and the answer is NO, I don't need help!

I have been SOOOOO BORED during all this yucky rain. I would go out and play in it, but Mama says being a wet doggy is no way to spend the day.

Besides bone chewin', 
Mama and I have been doing lots of training during the rains. I am learning lots of new tricks and commands and the answer is NO MAMA, I will most likely will not doing any of my tricks in public!

What indoor activities are you thankful for during the Winter months??

 We are joining Brian for the 
Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!


Wintery Tasty Tuesday #ChewyInfluencer

Is is us, or is Winter overstaying its welcome? This means WAY too much rain in our part of Blogville but, for a lot of you, we know it means artic cold, along with snow and ice!  All we know is because our walkies are being cut short, we are getting a bit stir crazy! 

We were so happy when Mama said it was time for us to go to work on our next #ChewyInfluencer review! Today we are reviewing a very nommy treat, Natural Balance, Limited Ingredient Diets, Lamb Flavored Chewy Bites! 

We were given a bag of 
Natural Balance Limited Ingredient Diets, Lamb Flavored Chewy Bites from Chewy.com in exchange for our(and maybe Mama's) honest to goodness, true blue opinion. 
Here are some of the great things Mama likes about
Natural Balance, Limited Ingredient Diets, Lamb Flavored Chewy Bites!
  • Lamb is the very first ingredient!
  • They only have one protein source and two carbohydrate sources, making them great for pups like me(Arty) who do better with a Limited Ingredient Diet!
  • 100% free of grains, fillers, chicken and potatoes...also good for pups like me, who might have food sensitivity issues!
  • No artificial flavors, colors or fillers!
  • Good for pups in all stages of life, from puppy to senior and everyone in between, kinda like our pack!

We all have our eye on the prize as we wait for the taste test!! Chewy Bites come nice size sticks for small to medium pups like us. Mama says she will be breaking them in half and quarters for training though...

OMD, these treats are soooooo delicious!!

I give it my #TongueOutTuesday tongue of approval for sure!!

Mama asked if we were up for some "boxing" and we said SURE as long as we could get some more of those nommy Lamb Flavored Chewy Bites!! We made a video to share with you...Jakey doesn't box, but he did want to share his trick with you too!

You can also view the Video HERE on YouTube

Thanks so much to the #ChewyInfluencer team for giving us the opportunity to review Natural Balance, Limited Ingredient Diets, Lamb Flavored Chewy Bites! We are proud to be a part of a company that values its customers as much as Chewy.com does!!

Final Nature Friday Fiction featuring Arty the Great

 Happy Friday and welcome to the first of my monthly installments of Arty's Adventures where I will do my best to mix together Nature Friday with...

...the page 87 fun of Final Friday Fiction with adventures starring Moi, Arty!
Make sure to visit YAM Aunty, HERE to get the Rulez..and join the fun!!

 This week's page 87 is from The Immortalists, written by Chloe Benjamin. Mama says she recommends this book highly!

-line 8 ~ muscle groups no one else has ever heard of - but
-line 12 ~ it should calm him but it doesn't: he feels like he
-line 16 ~ someone else scrawled at the bottom of the flier in

 Now...on with my tail~
 It was a windy morning when Mama and I started out our morning walkie.  I was enjoying the sun on my face when suddenly I there was a LOUD clap of thunder!!

 It was the loudest sound I ever heard  on one of my walkies! I scanned the horizon and yep...there, heading right for Mama and I was a big rainy thunder storm!

 I was trying to figure out how I would navigate back to the safety of the car,  when I met Seamore the seagull! Seamore assured me he could get me(and Mama) back to the park entrance before the storm reached us!!

I kept an eye on Seamore and made sure Mama kept up with me as we navigated the dangerous trails!

 Feels like the rain is right behind us Mama, hurry up before Seamore flies away!!

What's that Seamore? The parking lot is beyond the next building but,  we need to run? 

RUN MAMA, RUN before the ghosties get us! 
It's a haunted building!!

 Whew...thanks for the warning, Seamore! Someone else, might have walked by the haunted building and gotten attacked by ghosties for sure!!

I can see the car from here Seamore! Thanks again for getting us back to the park entrance with a few minutes of sun to spare!!

The End....until my next adventure!

Tongue Out Tuesday with Arty and Mini Mabel!

 On Valentine's Day, my Best Gal Mabel sent me the most wonderful pressies!!! Do you see the bestest part of the pressies?? Yep, that's right...it's a MINI-MABEL!!
Even though MM(MiniMabel) isn't half as beautiful as the RL(real-life) Mabel, I know she will be great company...We already have lots in common!!

 Mama made us pose for pictures...

 All we could think about was when the heck was Mama going to be done clicking, so we could taste some of those nommy smelling Smooches!

That's when "IT" happened, and I KNEW we were going to be great furiends!
We BOTH gave Mama raspberries at the same time!!!

 Thanks so much for my pressies, Mabel!
MM is going to be great company, but I can't wait to spend time with the RL you this Spring!!
