You mean it's Monday already?! ūüė¶

We had a great weekend and aren’t¬†looking forward to going back to work – would rather be out playing outside! ūüôā We think Chun would agree!


Looky here! We received a Stylish Blogger Award..

Thank you to our friends Lulu and Wally at for this award. Very sweet!

The rules for accepting this award are to thank the person (or pooch) who gave you the award, share 7 things about yourself, link to 15 recently discovered bloggers, and contact them to tell them about the award.

7 Things about Chunyo and his family.

1. We had two female dogs before Chunyo came into our lives Рa sweet Pomeranian and Shih Tzu. They passed away at 14 and 13.

2.We have 3 other dogs in our immediate family Рa schnauzer, a minature pincher mix, and a  Chihuahua (ALL BOYS!)

3. We like to travel. In fact, we have been to the  Philippines, Costa Rica, Portugal, Spain and Greece in the last few years. This year, we want to do a few short trips with Chunyo in tow.

4. Chunyo did not complete his first training class successfully Рhe clowned around way too much.  BUT he finished his second training course with flying colors (great teacher helped!).

5.¬†Chunyo was potty¬†trained right away.¬† In¬†fact, he¬†would always¬†cry as a puppy to go outside.¬†Maybe 2 accidents when he was sick, that’s it!¬†¬†HIS GIFT!

6. Chunyo used to hate the puppy paparazzi!¬† He’s gotten a lot better¬†about the¬†camera. Yummy treats help, of course.

7. Chunyo knows how to open doors!¬†Yes, he often breaks into the office ūüė¶ It’s a constant battle at our house.¬†

Might need some shades pretty soon ūüôā

Where’s my refill?

Wednesday¬†nights are usually¬†American Idol nights¬†(yes, I admit it we are¬†Idol fans).¬† In case anyone is wondering, lots of great singers this season.¬†Some dramatic ones, too (but I’ll save that conversation for another time). As we were watching and critiquing the contestants, it occurred¬†to us that a little someone was feeling neglected.¬† Out of nowhere, Chunyo¬†grabbed his Bento Ball and¬†bolted towards the couch to make his presence known.¬†

Of course,¬†I quickly reached for my phone to share his madness with you all.¬†¬†Sorry, they are a¬†little blurry. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Bento Balls, they are great.¬† You can buy different refills (we use chicken flavor) and they last for quite¬†a while.¬† And best of all, dogs still like them without the refills.¬† In fact, Chunyo was playing with his empty Bento last night.¬† It could also be that he was trying to remind us that he is¬†in need of a refill.¬† ūüôā

From Winter Coats, Sunshine to Umbrellas..

In the past few weeks we’ve¬†had¬†snow,¬†forcing us to pile on the layers; then suddenly, we got rid of them after the sun appeared :).¬† Sadly, the bright sun is now¬†gone and clouds and showers have taken over :(. SO we say all this to say, we are tired¬†anxious.¬†¬†We are anxiously¬†awaiting¬†the¬†sun, pretty, colorful flowers and longer fun-filled days¬†.¬† Looks like our Chunyo is too.¬†

Been doing a lot of this lately. Really need to work off these winter pounds..

Chilly Bones – Gone in a Flash

Chunyo recently received a great gift¬† –¬†Chillin’ Bonz.¬† Chillin’ Bonz¬†are bone shaped frozen treat trays.¬† They are really cool and super easy to make treats with.¬†¬†The package also¬†comes with¬†easy recipes too. I¬†used¬†the Peanutbutterbone¬†recipe but it also comes with a number of other recipes (e.g., Kiwiberry¬†Yum, Barking Wild¬†Fruit Treat). Great treats for the warm weather! ¬†

Here is the front of the box

The actual trays

 The pink part is great because it makes it easier to take the frozen bones out.

Pic of the recipe we used

We used left over peanut from the organic peanut butter from treats we made for Chunyo.  We used half of a small container of organic plain yogurt instead of vanilla yogurt.

Peanutbutterbone mix

¬†This is what the mix looked like.¬†I¬†ended up adding just a little more yogurt than¬†I expected. I do get curious about Chunyo’s taste buds sometimes, so I tried a bit.¬† Human opinion:¬† Good¬† – not that my opinion is what matters ūüôā

Perfect Distraction!

Beef Chew Strips!  We have bought different types over the past year or so.  And yes, they were starting to cost us a pretty penny ($$). So at the recommendation of a friend, we ordered a box from Pet Guys. They last quite a bit and Chunyo is a fan!
