The Solar Elipse of 2017 - The Path of Totality

At 1:22 PM CST today Monday August 21st 2017 the whole area went dark during the Solar Eclipse.  We were in the path of totality and it was truly an amazing sight!  During the months leading up to it I admit that I couldn't understand the enormity of the situation but as the time grew closer I got excited but had no idea it would be so magical to see live.

 I was lucky enough to have the day off of work (originally for a dental appointment that had to be reschedule due to the staff taking off for the eclipse) and got to enjoy it from the solitude of an open field out in the country with no distractions.  I packed up the treat pouch with my gear.

Lucy tested out the solar eclipse glasses before the big event.

My grandparents (Doggy Nanny and Grandpa as Lucy calls them) and Aunt Gracie joined us.

Lucy opted to sit with her best friend in the whole world while we waited on the moon to do its trick!

I watched through my eclipse glasses and just pointed at the sky with the camera.  I took about 10 shots and got 1 perfect one.  

Once the moon moved over and the sun came back out I updated facebook and snapchat.

The girls played hard in the field and after my grandparents went home I took Lucy down further in the field to do some training on the big toppled tree.  When we got home she got right to napping!

Another great day full of memories!

And here the little DSH peers into the forbidden lands.....just kidding he got out of the fence and can't get back in.  BOL

Putting My Paw Down!

 I was pawing through mommas pink planner book, and saw that is was a furry long time ago she went and got her oil changed.  I had to put my paw down and make her go on a Saturday, so I could make sure she didn't forget.  Hmm...these seats seem to have shrunk since I last came here.

It is tiring work making sure momma's getting her errands done.

Updates on the Crops

So we have been keeping an eye on the crops during our walkies and golf cart rides.

The corn seems to be growing everyday.  There is something so pretty about a field full of corn popping up in rows.

Upclose of the corn crops.

The soybeans are furry and tiny!

Attending a Birthday Party

 Momma's furiend invited us to attend her son's 2nd birthday pawty!  I have never attended a pawty before!!!  I even got to go shopping and help pick out presents and the wrapping.  I like it!  Its rainbow balloons!

When we arrived we got a little goody bag.  I spot something cool in here!

Call Vogue I'm ready for my close up!

Yum!  Blue Punch

The Birthday boy seeing his cake.

Is it time for cake yet?

No.  Oh I'll just take a quick nap then.

CAKE!!!!!  I got some vanilla cake and a lick or two of vanilla ice cream.

I fell into a food coma but awoke to sign his party card.

Here are the gifts I picked out, puzzles, a book and a dinosaur.

Momma, can I go splash in the water now wif the other kiddies?



I had a fabulous time meeting William and wishing him Happy Birthday.  Got lots of ideas for my big birthday coming up in just 3 short months!!!!

Sneaky Sneaky Momma

So its that time of the month when I get my heartworm medication.  Well I forgots all about it.  Momma did not and she tricked me.  She got a brand new healthy cravings chicken topper out to ensure I had a full tum tum, then she made me do tricks and tricked me with hiding my HWP in one.  Not nice.

Once it was all over I took off for the bedroom, no cuddles for you momma!  That will show her!

#ChewyInfluencer - Vittles Vault Pet Food Storage

My influencer boxes have been the highlight of my summer!  Getting to test the coolest products is quite exciting.  Momma surprised me with this months item....
 .....Boy oh Boy!

This is one giant box!

Inside I found a Vittles Vault, an awesome food storage bin.

Why it is so big I bet.......

Here I go!

Yep!  I fits so....

...gotta give it a quick sniff...

....then I sits.

All kidding aside, lets get some kibble in this vault!

This is the last of my puppy kibbles.  My big kid kibbles should be arriving soon and it will fill this vault all the way up!!!

Here are the key benefits:

*Easy and wide screw lid opening helps to ensure freshness without much effort and the space efficient and stackable design keeps these containers organized and easy to store. (I'm looking now to add a small one on top to keep my treats fresh)

 *Heavy duty, BPA free food grade plastic. For those who care about the safety and storage of their furry friend’s food.

*Airtight seal keeps pests out and food fresh. Your furbaby never has to settle for stale kibble again.

*Keeps pet food odor contained in vault. No more pet food smells emitting from your cabinet or attracting other animals!

*Includes a free measuring cup for precision feeding.

What momma loved: *It's footprint is quite small, 21 x 12.5 x 17 inches, but holds a massive amount of food, 40 pounds!  Meaning we can save money by ordering the big bag of kibble.  *Neutral color and opaque material.  (She doesn't like the look of clear containers for food)  *Large wide mouth opening, so she is able to reach all the way in when kibble runs low without having to move/tip over the container.  and *The vault feels sturdy.  It says it can be used indoors or outdoors. 

What I loved: *It fits nicely between my crate and my feeding mat.  Making it convenient for momma to stop and top off my bowl anytime.  *Keeps my kibble tasting oh so fresh!  and *The Vaults are stack-able for multi-animal homes.

In conclusion, momma and I are both big fans of the Vittles Vault!  It receives an outstanding A+ and we would definitely recommend it to our furiends and family.

If you or your pawrents have a storage problem, check out, they have tons of different types, styles, colors and sizes of bins for treats, food and well even toys.  You all know about Mr. Lizard getting out that time.  If he was stored properly I wouldn't have had such a scare.

So I was digging through my puppy bag the other day and came upon my carabiner of tags.  It has my Badge of Bravery (Rabies Tag) and Robot Puppy License (HomeAgain Microchip Tag).  Both of which have my unique number printed on them for quick reference.  Since I got registered PAL with the AKC I was thinking that when I go to an event it would be handy to have a tag with my registration number printed on it.  That way as I am filling out forms its right there on my bag.  Smart huh?!?!?!  Well that logic worked on momma and she gave me the credit card to go shopping.  I found the perfect tag from Lucky Pet and placed my order.  A few short days later it arrived.  Without further ado....

I chose the yellow star to match my registered name.  Twinkle Twinkle Lucy Star.  I must say its a lovely addition on my carabiner.
