As I mentioned in previous posts we decided to devote lots of our time this summer to some house projects. This is why I have been slackin’ on this blog 😦 So far we have gotten lots done (e.g., painted the trim of our house, shed and front door, put new numbers on our house, etc.) BUT there is lots more to do. In fact, we spent some of this weekend refacing our fireplace (phase 1 is completed – we’ll share details in future posts). We also decided it was finally time to put up some of the pictures of Chunyo in the hallway. We ordered some 8×10 photos from Mpix ($1.99 each) and bought some 11×14 frames ($6.99 each) and photo matts ($4.99) from Michaels and TADAAA!! See the final products below..
Have you used your dog’s pics as part of your decor? Anything cool you want to share..
Love this pic - you can see Chunyo's little nose running in this one. CUTE!
This is before we put them up…
Second pic in Sepia..
And here is the final view of the hallway. We decided to put one pic on each wall because the hallway is not very big. Gotta admit – I was pleased when they were up!
Final look of the hallway!
Happy Friday! So glad the weekend is here! Woohoo! But we are also happy to announce the winners to the Cesar Canine Cuisine giveaway.
Another drumroll please….
The lucky winners are Benny and Lily
Congrats and enjoy!
Have a great weekend!
- Big prizes!
- Congratulations Benny & Lily!
A big thanks to Cesar Canine Cuisine for sending us their delicious products & cool t-shirt!
Don’t forget to sign up for the Cesar Canine Cuisine giveaway – tomorrow is the last day to sign up!!
We currently have ONE plant. One lonely, old Bamboo that we picked up in New York City (gotta love Chinatown) years ago. Pathetic, I know but our Bamboo is still going strong!! Unfortunately, I know the time has finally come to have more indoor plants so I went on the hunt for some new house plants. Since Chunyo gets himself in trouble sometimes I wanted to make sure the new plants were non-toxic to dogs. I went to three places – Wal-mart, a local nursery and Home Depot – and only came out with TWO new plants. I really wanted to get a Ponytail Palm but the nursery wouldn’t sell me the one they had – it had bugs (just my luck), then the Yucca plant and the Corn Stalks I was eyeing in the store were both toxic to dogs. So after looking through the long ASPCA list on my phone, I came back home with another Bamboo and a Pleomele. SO the hunt will continue to find some more indoor plants.
Looking for suggestions! What plants do you have in your home?
THREE more days to sign up for the Cesar Canine Cuisine’s giveaway – ends Thursday!
Before I forget (again) – a BIG, BIG and very belated thank you to 2 Brown Dawgs and Just Ramblin’ Pier for our recent awards – Versatile Blogger award and Genuine Blogger award.
Check out our two new plants!
Hmm... What's this? For me?
Not sure why they got me posing next to this blue thing?
Chunyo is one lucky dog!! He recently got really cool gifts in the mail. Cesar Canine Cuisine was generous enough to send us a package in the mail filled with food and treat samples and a super cute, bright colored t-shirt. Unfortunately or fortunately (whichever way you look at it) the t-shirt was not for Chunyo but for ME!! Woohooo!!
The package included a t-shirt, 2 bags of Softies Medley treats and 7 meals in the following flavors:
- Grilled Steak & Eggs flavor
- Filet Mignon flavor
- Chicken & Liver
- Grilled Chicken
- Chicken & Veal
- Chicken & Cheddar Cheese Souffle
Now on to the good news (drum roll, please)! We received two packages – one for us and one for a lucky reader.

Which is Chunyo’s favorite flavor? Although he was a little suspicious of his bowl at first (first time having wet food) he quickly got over it. We mixed it with his food to avoid an upset tummy. His fav? Paws up to Chicken and Veal.
Hmm.. This is good..
Oh and the treats were a hit too! They come in super cool shapes.
Chunyo’s Corner has not been compensated in any way for this review. Opinions are all are own.
Well after several hours to think about it, looks like Chunyo is back to his normal self. He came up to us requesting to be held – a sign that he has forgiven us?! Perhaps!
OR maybe it’s because he needed to get his act together to deliver some good news about the Max and Ruffy’s giveaway.
According to Gus will receive a box of their Five Star Blueberry mini bites and a box of the Powerhouse: Sweet Potato and Alfalfa. Congrats Gus! And thank you to Max and Ruffy’s for the treats! The winner was selected using www.random.org.
Gus, we’ll be in touch!
Glad it’s the weekend. We have lots of fun things planned (unfortunately, for us not Chunyo). But he’ll be alright. He’ll spend a little time with our family. Hope everyone finds some time to relax!
Hmm... I have a feeling I am being left out of some fun this weekend 😦 And I don't like it!
