Summer Fun with Chillin' Bonz!

Can you believe it's already June?? The weather is getting nicer and nicer, and I am really looking forward to taking Sadie to the park and the beach on the weekends! And I know the perfect treat to make for her on these hot summer days!

Remember when I posted about the awesome gift we received -- Chillin' Bonz? We had such a great response to that post, that I wanted to remind everyone about them since summer is right around the corner. Here's a refresher:

 This is the product. It's pretty cool, I think. The tray snaps closed and has an inner removable layer as well (where the bone molds are), which makes for easy cleaning.
 Mixing up the yums!
 I can has treats now?
 The treats pre-freezing. 
Sadie got to lick the bowl, too!

Then we put them in the freezer and waited a few hours until...
 Frozen yummies!!!

We tried the peanut butter and banana flavor, because Sadie loves PB and bananas! It also had a little bit of honey in it as well. I couldn't get a picture of her eating the bone, because I seriously turned around to get the camera, and when I turned back, she finished it lol. So I suppose she approves!!!

(You missed the post or don't remember?! Then check it out, here.)

And while I posted the recipes that came with this awesome product, I just learned that they will be launching a website with additional recipes at the end of next week! (Be sure to check out then!)

I know some of you also have this product, and may have created some of your very own recipes. If so, starting next week, you can email them to and your favorite recipe might be included on the site, as well!

I can't wait to see what other recipes they post -- and I bet Sadie can't wait to taste them!! ;)

Another Giveaway!!!

For all you treat lovers out there (aka anyone with a dog!!!)...

The lovely people at Cesar sent us a box full of goodies recently! We were super surprised and excited (as we weren't expecting a package). Sadie was even more excited when I opened the box to find these:

They sent us several bags of these 10-calorie treats, in both the Rotisserie Chicken and Filet Mignon flavors. You can find out more about them here.

And since Sadie is only one tiny doggie, we wanted to share the wealth and have a giveaway for these extra bags we have!!!

All you have to do is comment, and you'll be entered. In about a week, I'll pick TWO winners to receive a fun package in the mail.

Good luck!!! :)

Tuesday, March 27, 2012 Review and Contest!

Lucky us! We were approached by recently, and offered to test out their website and products. We gratefully accepted and ordered lots of different goodies.

If you haven’t been to their site before, you have to check it out! They are an online pet food retailer and they offer over 80 brands of pet food, treats and supplies — for dogs and cats. They carry all the high-quality foods and treats I know many of you use for your dogs, and at discounted rates!

It was hard to pick what to order because there was so much to choose from — and lots of items I have wanted to try for Sadie but just never bought before for whatever reason. This is what we ended up with:   

Naturally, Sadie was very excited when this box arrived at our door! She knew it was for her!! I didn’t let her have everything yet, of course, but she has already approved of most of these treats. She isn’t too picky when it comes to food, but she knows good stuff when she smells it!

She is a BIG fan of the antlers, which I was very happy to finally get for her. (Although, I should have ordered a medium instead of a small; I wasn’t sure what size would be best for her…) She has been munching on that for the past few days!

Something else I love about They have a great referral program! Once you sign up for the site, you’ll get your own unique referral code to give out to friends, family, other bloggers, etc. When someone orders using your code, they will get 10% off their first order! But that’s not all! For every new friend that orders from them, they will donate $10 to one of their partner charities (you choose who you want to donate to). There is nolimit to how many people you can refer or to the amount of donations they’ll make!! Talk about an awesome website! :) So if you’d like to order, please use my referral code: LAUR7443. Find out more about the referral program here.

Now here’s the part you have all been waiting for!! One of you lucky readers has the chance to win some of these great products! I ordered a few extras of some of the above items, and I’d like to send them to one of you! There might be some extra goodies included, too — you never know! ;) All you have to do is leave a comment and tell us what you think of! Be sure to check out their Facebook and Twitter pages, too!

We Miss You!

And we hope you miss us, too :)

Sorry I have fallen off the face of the Earth lately. I try to update Sadie's Facebook page sometimes, at least...

Apparently lack of time for a blog is what happens when you work full-time, go to graduate school part-time, and are in a long-term relationship (it's almost our one year anniversary!!). I apologize for our lack of posting/updating. I just haven't had much time.

2012 has already been quite hectic, to say the least. The year started with a trip to Florida, so my boyfriend could meet my mom, and then my boyfriend and I could go on a short cruise. However, it turned into a bit of a disaster thanks to a full-body rash and a diagnosis of mono for me on our first day there! Ugh. Definitely not what I planned. I basically wasn't able to drink, wear a bathing suit, or be in the sun on our cruise haha. But we made the most of it. And it showed me what a good guy I have.

Other than that, I've just been busy and on the mend. But last week Sadie had some tummy issues -- possibly colitis? I won't get into too much detail, but her poop was not pretty. And it had mucus in it. So I freaked out and brought her to the vet. Put her on a rice/chicken diet and she is on antibiotics. She seems to be doing better. I just re-introduced some kibble with the rice, and she is doing ok. The most interesting thing? Ever since she's been on the rice/chicken diet and the antibiotics, her breath is not rancid!!! What does everything think that means?! Is it the meds, or the diet? I don't know...But I would like her breath to stay like this haha.

I'm thinking of putting Sadie on enzymes (and maybe probiotics) once she is off of the meds. Any suggestions?

Anyway, that's the basic update for now :) We hope you're all doing well! I haven't been on here in so long, so I have no idea what's going on unless you also post on Facebook! Haha.

Not sure when I'll get back to posting but I wanted to say hi!
