We Got TREATS! by Gimli

We got a box in the mail a few days ago! It had some really GOOD smells coming from it!

We could hardly wait for Grammy to open it for us after we read that it was from our friend Palette and her Mom, Yassy, who makes some WONDERFUL dog treats! She also has other dog treats that she doesn’t make herself, but that Palette “taste tests,” and she sells them from her online Website, Yassy’s Gourmet Dog Kitchen.

Grammy had ordered a Moose Antler for us to chew on this time! We’ve LOVED the deer antlers, we’ve gotten from them before, and they last a LONG time, so Grammy loves them too!

When she found out they had Moose Antlers, she decided to get one to see if they last a long time too, and if we would like THEM. Well, DUH!

NOW, this week, we found out they also have Caribou Antlers, and Grammy says she wants to try to get some of them too, next time. We got a “Coupon code” (AUGLB) that is good for 10% off all the way up to Oct. 24th of this year. Yassy also sent a couple of extra treats like she usually puts in her orders. We got a Lamb Trachea AND some Buffalo Liver cookies!

They said we could share the code with our furiends and they also have a GDK’s circle of Furiends reward program on their store menu where you can even get more off! This is really great because Grammy also got us some “Surf and Turf Jerky” that Yassy makes from wild caught salmon and Buffalo meat. THAT was SO GOOD!!! Some of us were drooling before she was able to give each of us a piece!

We are sharing about our wonderful treats too, because we are joining Sugar the Golden Retriever’s Tasty Tuesday Blog Hop. Her Mom also makes some wonderful dog treats that we’ve gotten before and loved!  These were Apple Bites...

This Blog Hop goes through September 8th. There’s even a prize! You can find out more about it HERE

You should join in if you’ve got a post about some kind of doggie treat your Mom gets for you! Now, I’m going back to my moose antler!

Popping in to say HI!

My… How time flies!  

And NOT the kind of  “Time Flies” in one of Grammy’s designs, either! 

It’s been around four MONTHS since we last posted a blog.  I’ve been talking and talking to Grammy about it and she finally decided to let us post, especially with what happened this last week!  I’ll let Gimli tell you about it…

Gimli:  GUESS What! For a couple of days, we’d been hearing something crying under the bath tub! I’ve been whining and telling Grammy about it, but she said we had to wait a day or so to see if a Mama came back. She didn’t, so Grammy got Uncle Manuel to crawl under the house and find out what was crying. (This is a vid is of Mama Dott listening)

THIS is what Uncle Manuel found!

It was a LOT louder after it was rescued!!!  

Since I told Grammy about them and INSISTED she DO SOMETHING, I feel like they are MY kittens!  GrandPaw Robert says I'm a good Mommy, but Grammy says I'm a good DADDY! I think this guy, with his LOUD voice, AND I saved these babies lives!
Here are the four babies that Uncle Manuel pulled out. He took the black one and the Siamese home with him, and I have the two little tigers until they get old enough to find homes. Grammy thinks they are around 3 weeks old now.
Grammy didn't even know there were any cats around, though WE've thought we might have seen one out of the corner of our eye every once in a while, and we've tried to tell her about it/them...

We are keeping them in a large pet carrier so they will be safe from Auntie Sadie who thinks that kitties are some kind of squirrel or something.  

I stay close to it and keep an eye on them and warn her if she tries to get close!  My babies and I touch noses every once in a while through the door.  

Whenever they are out of the cage, I try to stay close to them and clean and protect them. 

Papa won’t let me up on his lap where Pippin is, though, when he holds my babies, because I growl at Pip.  I told him that he’d better NOT mess with them!  

Pippin:  I really don’t think I like the idea of baby kitties around here!  What if Papa decided he likes kitties MORE than ME?!

Just LOOK at the NERVE of that little thing… Here it is scratching Papa’s arm…

And HERE it is BITING him!    

 I’m a little worried…

Mercy:  I’m glad I overheard Grammy say the kitties can’t stay once they get old enough to find good homes because she is allergic to kitties.

BG:  Another reason we can’t keep them is that they can’t stay in the house and if they go outside, they get out of the yard and the coyotes get them, so Grammy doesn’t want to hand feed them and fall in love and then have them get eaten…

Dott: I am just glad we can get some sleep now that they aren’t SCREAMING anymore!
