Technically It Was A Tie

We were just sitting on the couch being perfect angels when all of a sudden....

...sister caught me off guard!  She wen't crazy!

Instead of bitey face she went for bitey bum bum!

I regained my whits and got her by the leggie.

Then she came for my neck.

Lucy thinks she won, but if anything it was a tie.  Don't be a sore looser Lucy.

Smooches,

Heartworm Preventative Time - #ChewyInfluencer - Chewy.com Pharmacy Review


Ah the 15th its heartworm preventative day again.  Since switching to Sentinel last year heartworm prevention time is so much less stressful. 


Oh my DOG!!!!  This is my last dose of Sentinel. 


Surely not! Let me get a better lookie.

Better hop on the ipad and order another box from Chewy.com's online pharmacy right away.


No momma I am not trying to avoid taking my medication.  *WINK* *WINK*  This needs to be done first then I'll get right on it.  *Crosses paws*


Little tip tap here n there and I am done!  Chewy.com makes the process of reordering medications  super easy.  And since my pet profile is saved under mommas account its even quicker than last time.


They handle contacting the dogtor, the rx paperwork and the shipping.  Meaning I am done and I just have to wait for fedex to drop it off at my door!  Now onto my original task for today.  Yeah I definitely am going to needs some cheese to wash this down with momma.  Much better!


#tasty

Pup-date: There was a knock at the door and just look at what I found!!!!


Everything from Chewy.com arrives so fast!  #pawsomecustomerservice

Let's dig into dis box.

There it is my Sentinel Heartworm Preventative.

Right size, right brand, and....

Even has my name on da back.

Better load these pills into my purple container and the box in my doggie book for safe keeping. #organized

New Kong Fillers and Momma Bought a Snake

We have entered week 5 of the day care closure.  Routines are getting better.  We had a small incident wif the gate, a onsie and me.  Long story short, the gate attacked me, momma put it away and we have full run of the apartment.  Anyhoo momma came up wif a new filler recipe for our kongs.  We are trying out yum yum bones (milk bones soft and chewy treats) inside topped wif Cheese for Lucy and Peanut butter for me!  Here was the first set ever made.  

PUP-date: yum yum bones and PB are puptasticly delicious!

While the kongs are the favorite part of our morning momma noticed we both had a tough time getting all the goodies out since the kongs are so deep and our tongues are short.  (Don't worry the extracted the leftovers fur us)  She remembered seeing a different style fillable toy that was in the shape of a snake on a facebook group. She thought that since it was long and a bit more shallow it would work better. 

So there you go.....we now own a snake!

PS the treats go in his underside, momma forgot to get a photo of the snake empty.  Silly Momma!

Here he is filled.  Im drooling!

We've Been Bee-boozled

The weather was warm for a few days and we even saw some spring time friends.  Here is Brianna Bee.  She spent a few minutes wif momma at lunch time.  Isn't she pretty?!!?  Seeing her and feeling the warmth we thought spring had arrived.

Then we awoke last Sunday to 39 degrees, wind and rain!  I had to go triple layers in order to leave the house.  Long sleeve onsie, jam jams and a rain jacket!  #NOTFAIR

Its been wet and rainy since Sunday and they even say it will continue to rain into tomorrow.  #GRRR


Smooches,

The Petsmart Academy - Week 6 - I GRADUATED!!!!

Wow its been 8 weeks since I started class (there were 2 weeks off for personal reasons) and its been an amazing journey for me!  I have learned many tricks, learned to trust people/dogs, and got to have lots of one-on-one time wif momma.  This week I had to choose my personal favorite outfit which is my striped jam jams.  Its my signature piece!

When we arrived it got to lookin around and thought....

Its kind of sad this is my last class.  I really like coming here, learning, socializing and getting treats.

But this is a stepping stone to more fun, more cert-i-fit-ikits and of course treats! 

Right momma?!?!?! Yes, ok good to know.

Heres my last official class picture.

We ran through my tricks this time.  Sit, bed, spin, paws up, hup, shake and dance (standing up on my back two paws). 

Then we wanted to work on ringing the bell again.  Miss Rachel had been working wif Salsa on this and I had trick envy.  I kind of get it.  I can touch the bell but sometimes it does make the noise.  I'll keep trying. 

As we were working wif the bell momma caught me in a sit pretty.  I like this one.  I sit on my bum bum and put my front paws in the air.  Momma was just giddy with that.

Meanwhile Miss Rachel taught my big sisfur a new trick, and I thought she knew them all by now, but she is now trained to roll over.  Go Lucy Go! 

Side story Lucy wandered off at one point and Miss Rachel was looking for her and momma said "shes in your prop closet".  Low and behold my sisfur was indeed in the closet just nosing around.  Silly girl! 

Oh and one last side story Miss Rachel forgots to zip up her treat pack and well Lucy was neck deep in treats before she was noticed thieving from the trainer.  BOL I can't take this sisfur anywheres.

After we were done working together momma let me do my roaming thing and while I wasn't looking grabbed her cell phone and got a pic of me including myself in the group activities. We have Salsa with her DIY doorbell in a wooden block, Lucy desperate for a treat from Miss Rachel, and me getting closer than ever to another hooman of my own free will.  I took lots of treats from Miss Rachel and even one from Salsa's momma.  #Practicemakesprogress

All too soon that clock struck 6pm but before we left Miss Rachel had a special gift for me.  My very own CERT-I-FIT-I-KIT!!!!!! 

It has my name on it and everything.  I opted for not wearing the hat and posed wif it instead.  #Petsmartgraduate #igotacertificate #cheese

Before we left Miss Rachel came near to me and sat down.  I didn't run, and she petted me wee little head.  It was kind of nice.  I did get chicken jerky in return for my cooperation.  #yum

When we got to the car momma surprised me wif a bag of bil-jac training treats!  Yipee!

On the way home Lucy and I celebrated my graduation wif a little game of bItEyFaCe!

*raspberries*

I win...again!

I would like to send a special THANK YOU to Miss Rachel at the Wichita Falls TX Petsmart for working wif us on making this training class fun and educational.  I learned tricks, manners, and got to socialize.  Its made me a better pupper!


My next adventure will be trying out for my AKC TKN title.  Should be around the end of March.  I can't wait!
