Good News and Bad News…

First, the Good News! We had been visiting with Sugar the Golden Retriever, on her blog, and found out that she and her Mom make DOG COOKIES and treats! We finally got Grammy to go to Sugar’s Paw House and get US some COOKIES!

We were so excited, when she got them ordered, and we could hardly wait until she got the box opened when they got here!WOW! Look at ALL THE GOODIES! 

First, we tried some of the Veggie Hearts. They are all natural, with lots of good things in them, and wheat free! These had apple sauce, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, apple pieces and carrots. They were pretty good!

Then we tried the Pumpkin Bones…

They were good, too! They have rice, pumpkin (of course), cinnamon, ginger, and dried eggs with some other good stuff. They smelled good, too!

Unca BG pouted until he got seconds on those! Grammy has trouble resisting sad eyes… which CAN work toward our advantage.

 I kept nudging the bag with the Apple Bites in it and Grammy finally pulled it out!

The others were good, but THESE were our favorites! Grandma OC scooted herself across the room so she could be next to Grammy after she got a taste of those Apple Bites!

They have oatmeal, applesauce, apple bits, molasses, dried eggs, and cinnamon with some other good, healthy stuff too! They were little, and light, and Grammy says they will be just right for training treats.

Here is Pippin, sneaking one of Unca BG’s when he went after one that rolled.

He grabbed a few and then took them away from where everyone else was (on the other side of OC’s fence) and guarded his treasure! 

He is a BRAT that way… We waits until everyone else is done with there’s and all eyes are on HIM, and then he eats and looks at us like “Don’t you wish YOU still had some?!” He takes after Mama Dott that way…

Unca BG wanted to stay close to Grammy where the handouts were, but even he backed off a bit with Miss Mercy came in to get hers! She can get pretty nasty sometimes! 

Those Apple Bites smelled so good that Grammy even tried one… but she says they are a bit hard on her teeth…

Sugar was even so sweet that she gave us some extra treats! Thanks Sugar, and Mom! You made our day!

Now for the bad news… Grammy has been trying to do too much lately, and we’ve caught her crying about it. The holidays are coming up and things are really stacking up, and she is “just getting too much on her plate” as she puts it. Now, too much on OUR plates is always a good thing… in fact, HOW can you get TOO much on your plate?

Anyway, we are sad, but have come to the decision to stop blogging… at least for a while… so that Grammy doesn’t have to help us with that. We will try to get around to our friend’s blogs whenever we can, but for now, we are going to quit bugging Grammy and give her a little break. We know that all of you love your people, and will understand. So for now, we love all of you and wish you the best over the Howlodays! The Country Corgi Crew…

 PS… Grammy says to please be sure and vote, today!

Woof! Woof! Glad you guys liked and enjoyed the treats. Yes the Apple Bites are yummy ... taste like apple pie. We will miss you and hope to hear from you before the holidays. Sending you lots of Golden LOVE. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Angela said...

You sure do make those treats look so tasty! And they are healthy too! I'm glad that everyone got to enjoy some great treats today!

I do hope that you will get everything done that you need to get done so you can come back to blogging after the holidays! I will miss you guys!

blogging breaks are soooo wonderful!! we will miss you Linda and don't ever worry about coming over to my blog or not, just take care of what needs to get done and enjoy some time with your pups and family! I think we allow blogs to control so much of our lives we forget to do a lot of fun other things and with the holidays coming up, there are always lots of fun things to do!! Plus I know its been a stressful time with you with all the things going on so I think the rest from blogging will be a good thing.

We will be here when you come back; I always tell that to people. blogs will always be here!

those treats look great! might have to check them out!


Lorenza said...

We all understand your Grammy. It is not easy to do all the things we want to do everyday!
Enjoy your break!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Hi Guys, those treats looked awesome - not sure about 'training treats' right enough!
We just like the treats.
Now about Grammy - we sooooooo understand. That stuff about too much on your plate - well we bassets reckon you can never have too much!
Our own human tells us that she is chasing her tail.
We have looked guys and there is no tail there.
They are quite mad!
Tell Grammy to relax, we hope to still see you on Facebook.
Truth be told we kinda need to have a break too from the blogging - it does take up too much time.
This is our human before she goes to work!

Such a cute post, and I sure love the pics - even the parting shots - the corgi kids look so sorrowful! Be well, be happy, and be back when time allows! HUGS from us ALL!

Laurie said...

What lucky dogs! Those treats look great!

mayziegal said...

Well, firstly, your good news looked absolutely DEE-lish!

And secondly, your bad news made me sad. Cuz, well, I just luvs reading about your adventures. But, well, we sure understand about the busys. It's awfully hard to keep up sometimes and we don't want Grammy crying. Never, ever, ever! So please gives her brindle snugglies from me and tell her to just blog if and when she can.

Those treats look furry amazing!
We are soo sad that you guys won't be blogging for a while. You will be furry missed (at least by me!) hope you Grammy can get some more stuff done :)


Mango said...

You tell Grammy to not only take a blogging break, but to cross some of those things off her list of stuff and just not do them! Stress at holiday time is no good. Having Grammy happy and relaxed. That is good.
