I Hope They Are Hiking Together

This photo is a repost from November 9, 2013. I love this photo because my pal Dave is completely unaware he's about to be assaulted by a rottengreyhoundlabradork that loves him. Mabel's excitement upon seeing him...or any friend was always visible in her whole body.

David passed away yesterday after an oh-so-brief and brutal battle with cancer that attacked him on multiple fronts. While he was one of the newest members of the Creekerati, he was dearly loved and is sorely missed.

If there is a heaven for me, he's walking my girl that loved him so. And Hank, and Bart, and Gizmo. Dave loved all the dogs...and they loved him.

Product Review: Nutro Ultra All Natural Biscuits Oatmeal and Pumpkin

Hellooo Good Pups and Peeps of Blogville! Macy Blue here. My secretary keeps promising a "real" update... and then only shows up to type up my reviews... sigh! But...she did go see her V E T today!! So ...hopefully.

Momma made me wear one of Angel sis Maggie's old Halloween kerchiefs for this review. Don't I look fabulous??? This month Chewy sent me some Nutro Ultra All Natural Biscuits in Oatmeal and Pumpkin. This is what the package looks like.

And can you believe Momma making me sit there and smell these??

As you can see they are a good sized cookie! And the smell!! I so wish we had smell-o-net!

Finally, I get to taste! Toss me one Momma!

L@@k at Momma catching that with the cookie in the air!!! And Nom Nom nom nom....

THANK YOU MOTHER! May I have another...that wasn't a whole cookie, ya know! I have photographic evidence!


L@@k at Momma's mad skills, tossing and taking a pic!!!

OK you thing:

Creekhiker here: Macy adored these! OMG! First the ingredients being all natural and Nutro are great: 

Whole Brown Rice, Ground Rice, Oatmeal, Whole Oats, Chicken Meal, Pumpkin, Flaxseed, Lamb Meal, Salmon Meal, Chicken Fat (preserved with mixed Tocopherols), Oat Fiber, Dried Plain Beet Fiber, Sunflower Oil (preserved with mixed Tocopherols), Egg, Natural Flavors, Inulin, Tomato Pomace, Dried Blueberry, Dried Pumpkin, Dried Pomegranate, Dried Spinach, Dried Carrot, Dried Cranberry (preserved with mixed Tocopherols)
Macy really loved them. The regular price is around $10 / pound (less on autoship!)... but they are on sale at for $5.69!
The only negative for me is the smell...they smell TOO GOOD. I've never been tempted to eat a dog cookie. I have a friend who ALWAYS taste tests her dog's cookies. But these make me to want to bake fall cookies!
Back to Macy Blue: 
 Uh...I'm kinda busy Mooorm!

There are crumbs everywhere...ya know I gotta Hoover every last drop!
 Ok... Like I said...the Nutro Ultra All Natural Biscuits are PAWSOME!!! They'll put a tongue on your face for sure!

I give it four paws up! Mom gives it five fingers up... she's trying to bake cookies with her other hand! BOL!!!

Neither Creekhiker nor Macy Blue were compensated for this review. gave Macy Blue one case of  Nutro Ultra All Natural Biscuits Oatmeal and Pumpkin to devour...or not.

Product Review: Sojos Simply Wild Free Range Wild Boar

Hello there good pups and peeps of Blogville! Macy Blue here. I finally bribed my secretary with some serious playtime to get her to do my reviews this month! Geez... smh... good help is so hard to find.

O.K. Momma, what's up for the Blue girl to review? Sojos??? I LOVE Sojos!!! Wait, Sojos makes TREATS????

We love Sojos for their raw food kibbles but  treats too??? Simply Wild Free Range Wild Boar... I gotta try it! Gimme Momma gimme!!!

Nom Nom nom... Uh Mom???

May I have another???


Here we go!!! INCOMING!!! While I enjoy some more Free Range Wild Boar, Momma's gonna tell you about why we love our Sojos!!

Creekhiker here.  Yes, we are big Sojos fans here! But these treats are new to us. Sojos' specialty is homemade freeze dried raw pet food. And these Simply Wild Free Range Wild Boar are 100% Freeze dried raw boar. Macy LOVED THEM!!

Sojos never uses preservatives, food colors or flavors and uses 100% USDA certified meat. At 12.20 for 2.5 ounces, these are on par with other freeze dried treats we've bought. And.. the freeze dried meat makes an EXCELLENT training treat. These are a decent size for a regular treat but they can be cut down easily for training work. 

 You're killing me here Mom!!! Gimme!!!   

Wow! These were PAWSOME!!!

Macy Blue gives Sojos' Simply Wild Free Range Boar four paws up!!

Neither Creekhiker nor Macy Blue were compensated for this review. Sojos gave Macy Blue one bag of Simply Wild Free Range Wild Boar Freeze Dried Treats to try out. All opinions expressed were our own.

Product Review: Rocco and Roxie Stain and Odor Eliminator

Hello good pups and peeps of Blogville! Macy Blue here! Still hoping you haven't forgotten about us. Momma's shoulder is still being naughty and it hurts her lots on the computer and even worse on the ipad! And... we have house guests!  This is me and my pal Sue sleeping next to Momma's bed:

See how nice I am to give Sue the smaller bed??? BOL!!!  Sue and her Mom are staying with us for about a month as they sold their house up the street and are moving to Oregon soon. Since they don't have friends in Oregon yet, and Sue just loves us, we all decided it would be best for Susie and her mom to stay here until their house up there is ready.

Which brings me to the subject of this post... With two dogs in the house, Momma's got issues with the carpets. And since I know nothing about this... I'm gonna turn this one over to Mom!

Creekhiker here. Aside from the two dogs, my carpets are old. I didn't realized how bad they looked until I was looking at the pics for this post!  But as luck would have it, sent us some Rocco and Roxie Supply Co. Professional Strength Stain and Odor Eliminator! And...this stuff is aweseome!

Before Sue moved in, Macy horked up some grass / kibble / bile in the corner by her bed. The Stain and Odor Eliminator had arrived the evening before! What a way to test it out! I followed the directions and let it set for an hour. Then I blotted / let dry and vacuumed. I was afraid to go in for  sniff test...but it was fine!

Then Sue and her mom moved in... and I found a giant pee spot beside my bed. I'm not pointing any fingers but I'm pretty sure it wasn't me or Sue's Mom. Either Macy felt like marking her territory or Sue was testing the waters. It doesn't really matter as we've had no incidents since and Sue even wakes me up to let her outside when she has to go!

But the Stain and Odor Eliminator came to the rescue again! NO stain or odor where the accident occurred.

But what about my ancient carpets... It's full of stains there were here before I moved in! Like this one:

ICK! I sprayed it on and let set for 10 minutes:

Then I blotted and vacuumed... stain gone! Only...look how bad the rest of the carpet looks!! I wonder if this stuff comes in 55 gallon drums...>

Chewy Review Whole Earth Farms Hearty Turkey Stew

Hello there good peeps and pups of Blogville! Macy Blue here. Mom's a little miffed at me... Apawrently I was supposed to title my last post Mom's IN Pain, not Mom's a Pain. Oh well! But this is about my Review for Whole Earth Farms Hearty Turkey Stew.

Momma and me had quite a brouhaha over these pictures...she wanted me on my towel by the pool and I wanted to be on her feet by the Turkey Stew! She finally 'splained that I wasn't getting any Turkey Stew makes taking pictures really hard. So I hit my mark like a good supermodel should!

Momma wanted to show you all the rich Turkey Stew while I suffered and waited:

Finally! Incoming....

OK Momma's turn.

Creekhiker here: I really like the ingredients in the Whole Earth Farms Hearty Turkey Stew:

Deboned Turkey, Turkey Broth, Carrots, Chicken Liver, Peas, Dried Egg Product, Sweet Potatoes, Natural Flavor, Dried Potatoes, Blueberries, Calcium Carbonate, Sodium Phosphate, Salt, Potassium Chloride, Vitamins (Vitamin E Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, D-calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Niacin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Riboflavin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Folic Acid, Biotin, Thiamine Mononitrate), Olive Oil, Flaxseed Oil, Minerals (Zinc Amino Acid Complex, Iron Amino Acid Complex, Manganese Amino Acid Complex, Copper Amino Acid Complex, Potassium Iodide, Cobalt Glucoheptonate, Sodium Selenite), Choline Chloride, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Sage, Thyme, Caramel Color, Yucca Schidigera Extract
 As of this writing, Chewy has it priced at 19.98 for 12 which is actually a tad cheaper than our usual brand! I think we'll add it to our list!  Back to Macy Blue:

OMD!!! OMD!!! She said she'd add it to our list!!!! I can't believe it!  Princess Purse-strings is gonna add it to our list! That sounds like two thumbs up! As for me, the tongue says it all!
I give it four paws up!
