Product Review: Pawsta

Hello good pups and peeps of Blogville! It's me, Macy Blue, with another review for our pals at

I thought you might be tired of our reviews from the backyard so I got my Auntie to bring my best bud, Otto Rotto, out for a hike with some treats!

Chewy sent me Pawsta  from Rachael Ray Nutrish line to review. First of cute is Otto Rotto staring up at his mom?? Can you tell from the look on my face that I adore him??? He was my first friend my mom introduced me to after I came to live here!

Here's a shot of the bag. Mom likes the window where you can see what the treats look like and how big they are. They are shaped like rigatoni and filled with meatables! Yum!

Come ON Auntie!! Let us taste!!!

Oh you're just teasing us!!! Poor Otto! 

Hurry up Otto! I want one too!!!! Dang this is taking for ev errrrrr!

Finally!!! It's MY turn!!! Chewing.....

Oooh and another!!!! THANKS AUNTIE!!!

I better let Mom take over with her blue words about the 'gredients and stuffs: 

Creekhiker here. I was not sure about these...they were nothing I would have picked. RR is not my favorite chef cook er....television hostess.  But darn if they aren't affordable, made of good stuff appears my princess and her big guy like them! 

Here are the ingredients straight from the website: 

Beef, Ground Rice, Pearled Barley, Rye, Vegetable Glycerin, Potato Protein, Brown Rice, Rice Syrup, Tapioca, Brown Sugar, Oatmeal, Gelatin, Water, Flaxseeds, Poultry fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Natural Flavor, Sunflower Lecithin, Salt, Citric Acid (a preservative), Paprika Extract, Beef Stock, Sorbic Acid (a preservative), Potassium Chloride, Carrot Extract, Titanium Dioxide (color), Rosemary Extract. appears we may be adding these to the autoship rotation. 

Whoo hoo! I got it in writing folks! More Pawsta for me!  As for the last word, I think Otto's lips say it all: 

That wraps it up! Otto 'n' me give Rachael Rays's Nutrish Pawsta eight paws up!

Product Review: Blue Buffalo Healthy Starts

Hello good pups and peeps of Blogville! Macy Blue here, chillaxing  and snoopervising my Uncle Chuck working on swamp the pool. I'm here with another review for .

OK Mom... what did send me???

This month, they sent you Blue Buffalo Healthy Starts Southwest Skillet with Beef and Egg Macy Blue.

Let's take a look at it in the container: 

What do you think MB? Does it look like pate??? 

I'm not sure what that is Mom, but it looks mighty fine to me... get the fork!!!

 Well that sure is tasty Mom... Let's put it with some kibble.

Mom mixes it with warm water and my meds for my shoulder and kibble. Yum. And....

...All gone!

All right your thing:

Here are the ingredients straight from the website:

 Beef, Chicken Broth, Chicken Liver, Potatoes, Dried Egg, Guar Gum, Tricalcium Phosphate, Natural Flavor, Potassium Chloride, Salt, Carrageenan, Cassia Gum, Choline Chloride, Zinc Amino Acid Chelate, Iron Amino Acid Chelate, Vitamin E Supplement, Magnesium Oxide, Copper Amino Acid Chelate, Manganese Amino Acid Chelate, Sodium Selenite, Thiamine Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Cobalt Amino Acid Chelate, Cobalt Amino Acid Chelate, Niacin Supplement (Vitamin B3), Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B5), Vitamin A Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement (Vitamin B2), Biotin (Vitamin B7), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid (Vitamin B9).
My biggest beef with these is the they only come in a 3 oz can...maybe they are meant for small dogs? The price on these is currently 1.24 per 3 oz. and my regular brand is 1.67 for 12 oz. which makes the Healthy Starts rather pricey for my budget. I also did not like the plastic container. It was hard to put a lid on for the fridge and in retrospect, I wonder if I was under-feeding Macy!

Well, I sure like it! Wait! WHAT??? I'm being UNDERFED???? Oh, the abuse!!! GRRRRRR. I have to go have a chat with Mom... but ... I give Blue Buffalo Healthy Starts Breakfast Skilletfour paws up!

Product Review: Stella and Chewy's Superblends.

Happy New Year good pups and peeps of Blogville! Macy Blue here with a last minute product review. We would have been earlier but...Mom's old 'puter and new 'puter were not talking to one another and Momma is nearly BALD!

OK, Mom the year is wasting away...what did send me this month?

They sent some Stella and Chewy Meal Mixer Superblends:

It's a topper for your foodables Macy...or you can eat it like a whole meal...user's choice.

So I started your supper just like normal but used about a 1/4 less food...


MB, it's a "topper"... I subtracted 1/4 cup so I could ADD a 1/4 cup of the Stella and Chewy's Superblends....

Oh... Make sure it's the right amount Mom....

I did, MB! Then we mix it in....

Back to the Ms. Macy Blue:

 I can say that was deeeelish Mom! So...can we get MORE???

Well... it's kinda expensive, coming in at more than $2 an ounce!

There goes Princess Pocketbook again!

Well, I find this similar in quality to other freeze dried foods we've tried and some of those are around .55 cents per ounce....So I would rather get you those.

Ugh! What ever MOM!

I still give Stella and Chewy's Superblends FOUR PAWS UP! Princess Pocketbook is still looking for  a crowbar to jam in her wallet and is unable to vote!

You know, the next time I adopt a dog, one I things I'm going to do BEFORE deciding on a name, is talk-to-text the choices into my phone.  Why??? Because Siri is an idiot.

Case in point is my real life pal Otto Rotto over at RottRover. When ever we text, Siri slaughters his name. Luckily we all "speak" Siri...for the most part.

Allow me to translate that. I deliberately picked words I knew Siri would have issues with for that picture.

Can Otto come out and play? We could see if the Tujunga river is flowing or head over to La Canada (pronounced "la canYADA) and try out the Hahamongna ....

Siri has so many names for Otto... we have a running list of mishaps with his name. The freakiest one ever was Auto-erotica! Ewe!

Besides auto, Siri has called him automotive,  auto rocket, auto-rotation, autoroute, and...Oral... It's why I picture Siri as a hard of hearing woman who has had too much to drink.
