A Great Day: Chow Now and a Busy Bone Later

(c) Carrie Boyko
Time to Lose the Sign, Mom!
Busy Bones are in high gear today over at All Things Dog Blog. They are my all time favorite treat. It's sort of like a really slow, enjoyable snack that I can savor and lick out every drop of flavor.

What?! You've never had a Busy Bone? Oh dear. Oh my. You've got to click right over to mom's post on how to make Organix Busy Bones. We'll be eating ours this afternoon. Pics later. Enjoy!

Organix Food Inside
Organic Sweet Potato Topping

These Busy Bones are filled with Organix canned food and a layer of kibble for crunch. Then mom tops them off with organic mashed sweet potatoes for extra fiber and beta carotene. We just love them.

You can also fill a Kong with the same goodies:

I Can Finally Say It: I Love Organix!

by Tanner

  ♫ Proud to be an Organix Eater
Where at Least it's Free of Toxins

Okay, I guess that's sort of corny. But it has been killing me to keep my snout snapped through this secretive business. I'm glad the cat's out of the bag!

So, did you read The Big Reveal AND the Giveaway post? I can't believe mom is giving away 12 bags of food. I'm trying to find it here, but she has hidden it really well. A little help? Shouldn't I get something for all my modeling efforts?

Hold the dog whistle. I just remembered that mom made a new recipe yesterday--dog cookies out of Organix crumbs from the bottom of the bag. Boy, did they smell and taste good. She'll be sharing that recipe soon, so you can all save money on treats, while using up the leftover crumbs from each bag of food. Cool, huh?

We should hop into the Pet Blogger hop to help get the word out. Enjoy!

Still No Peeking....

What's in That Bowl?
Tanner and I are dying over here. All this talk about dog food quality and we're salivating like a faucet. Mom is writing about all the different no-no's that are in some of the dog foods that we do not eat. Yuck!

We're lucky to get a healthy brand. Mom says she even has some money saving ideas coming up on All Things Dog Blog, to help out folks who need to spend less and still get better food.

We love her Busy Bones, Pupsicles and the Crumb Cookies are the bomb. Stay tuned for all her recipes coming up soon.

Can You Guess What's in My Dish?

by Oliver
First rule is there is no peeking in my dish. Got it?

Here are a few hints to help you:
  • My food is certified organic by the USDA Organic Program.
  • It's made with organic chicken, brown rice and oats, so there's no icky stuff hiding in it. No corn and no wheat.
  • The maker adds lots of fruits and veggies to the recipe--yum!
  • No artificial ingredients means Tanner and I get real food that includes natural forms of fiber and vitamins and healthy fats from fish, so our coats are healthy and shiny.

One more guessing game....did you have any idea what the problem was with the photo on the Surprise Announcement Page? Correct guesses get you an entry into a surprise giveaway on Saturday. I'll give you a little tip; check out my bow tie and Tanner's. Is there something wrong? Good luck! You have until tomorrow afternoon at 5 PM to enter your guess at All Things Dog Blog's Pet Food Pantry post.

Does it Get Any More Embarrassing that This?

 by Oliver

© Carrie Boyko
No! I Will Not Face the Camera.
I've had just about as much of this Potty Park business as I can take. It's just downright embarrassing to have a camera in my face while I ....you know.

Today mom has reviewed this indoor Potty Park over at All Things Dog Blog. You can see it in the picture. It's pretty slick; looks and feels like real grass and works just like my back yard.

She says she's giving one away to somebody who is lucky. Sounds weird to me to be lucky to get a potty, but whatever! Check out her post if you want to enter. The rules are there and soon, I hope there will be no more photos of me doing...you know. Whew!

Tanner Gets the Weekly Preview!

by Tanner

Tanner Snuggles with his Treat Ball
Having a cut on your paw pad is not such a great thing. It really isn't that bad, but mom will absolutely not take me to the dog park or even let me swim. It's a super bummer.

I get to do stuff like chase a treat ball around the house, take walks on the sidewalk when it's cool outside, and do photo sessions for the blog. I actually like the photo sessions. I get treats for doing a good job.

Since I'm disabled, mom says I get to do this week's All Things Dog Blog Weekly Preview. She's gonna put Oliver on some other task like guarding the house or.....well, that's just nonsense!

Here's what's coming up this week over at All Things Dog Blog:

  • Pup Profiles returns with a special reader's pup
  • Mom's series on healthy dog food and the investigation into organic food continues, with 4 more posts this week. What do you suppose she has up her sleeve? Sounds like a big announcement or a giveaway. Oh, right. I do have a secret to keep. Oops.
  • Product reviews are big fun this week--food and the opposite of food. LOL, Oliver had to do the dog potty review! I have to admit though, he got the hang of it really well. Good job Oliver!
  • Our trainer has some suggestions for a Border Collie owner whose pup is in need of extra workouts. I think that's true of every Border Collie I ever met at agility--hyperactive and fast as lightening on the agility course!
  • Did I forget the giveaway?  Toys, food, and a dog potty are all up for grabs. You can check mom's sidebar for links to the giveaway posts. Good luck!
  • Finally, our Adoptable Pets Tour of States will take us across the ocean to Hawaii. I'm curious what sort of pets we'll find there. Do you suppose the dogs wear Hawaiin leis instead of bandanas?
  • Next week? Money saving mania begins. Mom plans to show you how to make living organic a possibility, even on a tight budget. She's got all sorts of recipes and a guest post coming from her 20something Saver buddy, Lizzi. Don't miss these great tips for keeping your pet food budget in check.
  • And Dr. Pat will be back next week...lots going on, huh?
I think I got a bit carried away with some peekaboos at the following week, but that's okay. Hope to see you all real soon.

Rolling out the Beginning of "Unleashing Our Secret"

by Tanner
© Carrie Boyko
Sorry! It's Still a Secret
Over at All Things Dog Blog, our mom has started a revolution. Well, maybe that's a bit exaggerated, but she's out to share some important info on feeding us pups without any unseen ingredients that leave gunk in our livers, while overworking them.

A few years back when mom and our Xena both got cancer, we all went on an organic 'diet'. Sounds awful, but actually it's very tasty. We'll be revealing our fave real soon, so stay tuned. And don't miss mom's introductory info that starts today at the Pet Blogger hop. I think she's giving away a couple of surprise gifts by having you play a guessing game. Check it out here!

Oliver! I Got the Rascal.
You Can Come Out Now!
I guess if I only weighed 10 lbs. I'd probably be scared of the gator too. I plan to take him for a swim and make sure he knows who's boss in the pool too. No gator is going to pick on my little buddy, Oliver.Hmph!

He Can't See Me....Right?

by Oliver

If I Hide Down Here
He Can't See Me
Mom and Tanner have been playing with this alligator toy, so I had to check it out. I'm not a big fan of squeaky toys, but curiosity got the best of me. 

It was a little scary, so I decided to hide. Do you think he can see me?

Mom says you need to read all about gator safety over at All Things Dog Blog, and watch for the gator giveaway also. Be safe.

This post is part of the Saturday Pet Blogger Hop. Enjoy the fun and be sure to stop and thank our hosts, Two Little Cavaliers, Life with Dogs, and Confessions of the Plume. Watch out for the gators!
