Tug, Shake, Squeak and Snuggle…

Like our pal at According to Gus, we recently ordered something from Barking Deals.  And what a deal it was – we ordered a KONG® Tugger Knots toy for $6.99 (with free shipping). This toy is great – dogs can tug at it, shake it, make it squeak and snuggle with it too.

Unfortunately, Chunyo has a bad track record. He destroys some of  his toys (and beds too). But this one, I am happy to report has survived his rough antics.  In fact, he often spends time snuggling with it (which probably defeats the purpose) – but I guess he and the monkey have bonded 🙂 Whatever makes him happy, I say!

You mean I can shake, tug, squeeze and lay with it?!? Now, that's what I'm talking about!

So based on our experience – it’s a winner. Of course, the 50% off from Barking Deals definitely made it worth a try! If you aren’t signed up already, try it out.

Oh, did I forget to mention - I can use him as a pillow too :)?

Heard I'm supposed to be "wordless" today?

Paws up to Max and Ruffy’s..

As some of you might recall – we recently realized that Chunyo is allergic to one of his favorite treats: peanut butter. In light of this, we are checking out some different options.  We are happy to share our recent find: blueberry grain-free treats from Max & Ruffy’s.

Max and Ruffy's

Because Chunyo can be a bit picky we wanted to give it a some time before we shared our thoughts with everyone. The verdict: a winner!
See pics for the real deal on the treats.  Our thoughts and considerations are also listed below but Chunyo’s last pic might just seal the deal for you and your pooch 🙂
  • The box is filled with plenty of treats that will last quite a while.
  • They come in different flavors.
  • Max & Ruffy’s website tells you where you can find them online or near you.
  • Only one thing to consider – they might be a little hard for some dogs (e.g., very small or young dogs, older ones, etc.). They seem to be quite crunchy.

    That was delish! Another one? Maybe?!?

    Monday Lovin’

    Well the weekend flew by (as always).  We even got a light coat of snow.  Crazy!  The sight of snow on Dandelions is just wrong:(. 

    On another  note, we were able to get a little R & R and a few laughs along the way.  As we were leaving on Friday, I leaned over to give Chunyo a kiss – totally forgetting that I had just put lipstick on. I admit it sometimes I just can’t resist his little face. I couldn’t help but start cracking up on the perfect lipstick print on his forehead.  I ran for the camera immediately! By the time I clicked – he looked annoyed.  But it was still funny to us! 🙂 Enjoy!

    HMM!! I'm glad you think this is funny... I don't!

    I'm feeling like goofing off today.. Can you tell?

    Something to think about… A Dog’s Purpose

    W.  Bruce Cameron’s book, A Dog Purpose: A Novel for Humans is a wonderful addition to our collection of books. Cameron successfully sheds light on the deep love between dogs and their owners. A Dog’s Purpose takes readers on an entertaining and sometimes emotional journey through the eyes of Bailey,  a special canine who lives several lives in an effort to find his life’s purpose. Cameron’s main character experiences the life of a stray, the best friend of a young boy (a very touching relationship), a rescue canine and an older man’s companion. I have to admit that I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this book (avoided spoilers in advance) and didn’t know where the book was going the first few pages. But don’t let this affect your decision, it didn’t take long to have me hooked – I was laughing at times and sad at others. Cameron does an excellent job of making the point of view of the dog quite believable. 

     If Cameron’s goal was to make his readers see life through the eyes of their canines – mission accomplished! Bravo! I caught myself thinking more deeply about our own dog’s (gotta love Chunyo) thoughts, triggers and behaviors. But above all, I loved the idea (whether true or not) that our canines serve a special purpose.

    I would recommend this book to other dog (or any animal for that matter) lovers.  I ordered the hardback because I couldn’t wait to read it. But for those of you who are more patient or prefer paperback, it will be available May 24, 2011.  For those of you who are like me, better find yourself a Borders coupon

    So tired, I can't keep my head up 😦

    Fab gifts in our mailbox…

    I love checking the mail everyday.  Not sure why exactly, I just do.  Usually, I just find bills and junk mail.  But this time, I was very happy to receive a gift from our friends at All Things Dog Blog. Woohoo – Chunyo’s Corner recently won one of their contests.  As one of their lucky winners – we received a copy of Darby’s Story, The Life of an Adopted Dog by Martha Steward.

    Look at our new book!

    But in addition to the book, we got a few other little items in our package – a bandana, a pen and some Tokipoki cards.  Very cool!!  Thanks to All Things Dog Blog! Can’t wait to read the book.  Will share our thoughts with everyone.  On another note, we also need to thank All Things Dog Blog for our most recent Stylish Blogger Award!  We are once again flattered 😉
