More Practicing - by Hailey

Last Saturday, we had to practice going in the car again. This time we had to go in the car for an hour. Phod had breakfast first, and he was sick in the car. Eating 1.5 hours before going in the car doesn't work for him. Last time we went in the car about 6 hours after he ate and he was fine. He was a gentleman and was sick on the towel Lady put down for him, so clean up was very easy. Lady says before we leave for BAR on the traveling days Phod won't have breakfast. 

Other than that, Phod and I did a wonderful job at sharing the backseat. He does take up a lot, but I will forgive him. 

We were so excited to be at the park! We went to a park called Bruce Pit. It is a huge area, former sand pit, with a fence around the edge to keep us in. It was surprisingly not busy for the Saturday of the long weekend.

We had a great time. We:


That is us in the middle of the picture

sat for cookies (or at least I did),

Did I mention cousin Emma met us there? You can see her paws in this picture

rolled in stinky things,

Emma waiting for me to move so she can roll

ran some more,

I love to run. Lady says I could run at home if I was as good there as I was at the park

found mud to play in,

Later Phod rolled in dirt to cool down!

begged for treats,

Cousin Emma begged for our treats a lot, so did a lot of dogs we didn't know. Beef lung is popular at the park
sniffed things,

There was so much pee mail to read, it was crazy
 left pee mail,


I always led, Phod and Emma followed me

made friends,

There was a great Dane group walking, we met a lot of them. They are big so I let them sniff me. 

and practiced our tricks.

Man made us do table at the park

After about an hour and ten minutes of doing the park, we were tired and really ready to go home. Lady and Man said we were perfect and we can go again. It is the first time in a long time that I didn't end up on leash. Lady says that is because she had beef lung in her bag (along with water) and I knew it. 

It was a great way to spend a Saturday morning!

Tasty Tuesday - Nutram 30-Day Optimum Transition Challenge - Wrap Up

Today wraps up our 30 Day Nutram Optimum Transition Challenge.

"Give us more!"

To recap, Nutram is a Canadian made food. It is available for both dogs and cats in 36 countries.

For this challenge our dogs tried formula T-26, Totally Grain Free Lamb & Legume Natural Dog Food. We picked this formula after completing Nutram's easy to use "your  Nutram number".

What we loved:
-Both dogs were really excited at meal time, during the entire month. It was especially noticeable for Zaphod who is not as food motivated and doesn't show excitement at meal times.

Phod licked his bowl clean every night

-Both dogs had healthy poops while on it.
-Both dogs had the energy to run and play.
-I love that it is a Canadian company.
-I love that each ingredient is something I can read and understand.
-I love that it was easy to find a relator who will supply it from the Nutrum site. (There is one near my work).

What we didn't love:
-We honestly can't think of anything.

Nutram is definitely a food that can be part  of a healthy lifestyle for Hailey and Zaphod.

Thank you Nutram for allowing us to participate in this yummy challenge. We loved it. We give you 8 paws up!
Hailey never left a piece!

Sepia Saturday - Still Use It

Even though she keeps peeing on it, and washing has made it very lumpy, Hailey still loves this bed. I don't think it will last much longer because she has decided it is her indoor toilet. (She goes through phases like this)
