September Chewy Review

Our September Chewy review box came!

Sometimes Mom chooses the items, and sometimes she lets us choose them. We chose them this time.

We chose the Merrick Jerky Strips. We've tried other jerky strips before, and we've had good experience with Merrick products in the past, so we thought these would be a good fit for us.
In case the light blue highlighted link doesn't work, here's the link to the treats from Chewy...

 And we were right!
Swisher gobbled it up so fast without a second thought. He didn't even let the camera focus on him. Bol.

Oakley on the other hand, likes to sniff and lick before he tries anything.  
 Outcome was the same, he gobbled it up right after inspection.

1. Very good tasting. We got the chicken flavor, but they have beef and beef liver as well.
2. Use highest quality of ingredients. Nothing artificial.
3. Rich in nutrients. 
4. Made in the USA
5. Fair price.

1. If this can even be considered a con, it doesn't come in a resealable bag.

Thank you Chewy and thank you Merrick for a great product!

Lots of satisfied licks,
Swisher and Oakley

Dog Wash

Mom and Aunt V went to a festival in town and saw a pet booth. There was a spinning wheel and you could win prizes. Mom spun, and she won a coupon for a free dog wash at a local pet store. Aunt V spun, and what do you know?, she won a free dog wash coupon too! I'll give you three guesses where Mom and Aunt V took us? Yup.. the dog wash!

We shop at the pet store, but never had used the pet bathing area. There's a huge tub and its got movable shower spouts.

We brought our own I Love Pet Head shampoo.

This isn't so bad. It's kind of like our tub at home. 

How do I look guys? So fresh and so clean.

                                                                     My turn to dry off.
There's a pet hair dryer in the background. Mom tried it on me, but I was a bit scared of it. It was VERY loud.

Next up was Oakley.
  Uh...I don't know about this guys. 
Activate: Cautious Claws!

Nope. Not going in there. It's too far down.

Oh hey, this water is nice and warm. Maybe it's not that bad after all.

Uh, Mom someone is watching me shower. 

Oakley: Hey dude..what's up?
Big Dog: Yo, how much longer you think you'll be?
Oakley: Oh I'm almost done. Just gonna dry off.
Big Dog: Cool. You smell great.
Oakley:  Thanks!

 Hey! Where did everyone go?

Mom tried the dog dryer on me. 

It was loud, but I liked the way it felt. 

That wasn't so bad. Thanks Pet Extreme. See ya later!

Lots of clean licks,
Swisher and Oakley

New Food Review from Chewy

Hey Everyblogger...
We got a review for you guys.
Swisher, is never afraid to jump right in and take a good sniff!

I on the other hand like to be cautious and slowly creep up and check what's inside.

Chewy had contacted everyone through pee-mail who had tried their Orijen freeze-dried treats and asked if we would like to try some of their new Orijen Adult Freeze-Dried Dog Food.

The recipe we chose is made with chicken, turkey, fish and eggs.

On the side of the bag it gives you the prep instructions. These are a little different than your average dry food.

The come served as medallions. Sort of like dry hamburger patties.

You add some water, and cut them up to help absorb the water.

Then you smush it all together and mix.

This is the end result. It might not look like much to some humans, but it smells tasty.

Look at us sitting like good boys. Mom told us to be patient while she made our breakfast.

Patient? Who can be patient when the food's calling our names?

Mom added a little bit of our regular dry food in there too for some familiarity.
 But who needs familiarity? That was delicious!

We licked our bowls clean. Every. Last. Lick.


1. Delicious and nutritious.  This recipe is made with free run chicken and turkey, wild caught fish, and nest laid eggs. No phonies around here.

2. Grain free, high protein, low carb, balanced meal.

3. Easy prep work. 

1. A bit pricey, but ingredients are great quality.

2. Served as medallions. This was a 6oz bag that came with 12 medallions. With two dogs, or even larger dogs, you may run out fast.

All in all, we loved it. Good tasting and good for you! 2 paws up! Thank you Chewy for giving us the opportunity. You don't disappoint.

Lots of satisfied licks,
Oakley and Swisher
