Lovings for visitors


Whenever we have visitors from out of town, the boys have to make them feel special — each in his very own way. After all, as far as the boys are concerned, everybody who enters the house is here for the Chick & Bug show. What other reason could there be?

So while Aunt Kareaux was reading books with Puppy E, Chick was giving her ankle a most heartfeult snuggle:Evangeline-130728-16While Doodlebug was teaching Uncle Anders how to breakdance.

The yummiest of yummables

When Chewy.com asked us to join their team of blogger product reviewers, we first thought to ourselves… nah, we don’t really like doing product reviews. But then Doodlebug looked at us like this, and we thought to ourselves… You’re right boys. High-quality treats, delivered to our door for free? Yes please.


So we made our selection — the Orijen Black Angus Beef freeze-dried treats, and before the dogs could figure out how to spell “lickety-split,” the package arrived.

Chickerdoodles-130702-10What did we think? Us humans were impressed with the short list of ingredients: Angus beef liver, boneless Black Angus beef, Black Angus tripe. The treats — along with all Orijen products — are made in Canada from all Canadian ingredients, and we like that too.

What did the boys think? They decided that black angus is their favorite flavor of beefs. These treats were so yummable that the boys couldn’t even concentrate enough to follow basic commands or do simple tricks. I’d ask for one thing, and they’d speed through all of the commands and tricks that they know in rapid fire succession, and then stare at me with those gimmegimmegimme eyes.


If anything, these treats were too delicious. We’ll be saving them for those special occasions when we’re asking the boys to do something exceptionally difficult, like walk casually past a giant, tiara-wearing cat eating a tuna sandwich with bacon on top. The boys are just hoping that such a day comes.
