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:

I'm not sure what a superblend is...but if it's from the nice folks at Chewy, I'm game! Let's get to it!

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....
Whatcha think Macy Blue??

Nom Nom nomnomnomnomnom....'s what the website says about the Stella and Chewy Superblends:

 Duck With Ground Bone, Turkey, Turkey Liver, Goose, Turkey Gizzard, Organic Bananas, Organic Wild Blueberries, Organic Strawberries, Pumpkin Seed, Potassium Chloride, Organic Cranberries, Organic Spinach, Organic Broccoli, Organic Beets, Sodium Phosphate Monobasic, Organic Carrots, Organic Squash, Organic Apples, Choline Chloride, Dried Pediococcus Acidilactici Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus Acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Bifidobacterium Longum Fermentation Product, Tocopherols (Preservative), Calcium Carbonate, Zinc Proteinate, Zinc Sulfate, Iron Sulfate, Iron Proteinate, Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin, Copper Sulfate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Sulfate, Sodium Selenite, Manganese Proteinate, Thiamin Mononitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid, Calcium Iodate, Vitamin B12 Supplement.

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.

Big Bones

I ran across this pic of Puppy Lou (a/k/a Mabel Lou, the Queen Bitch of Everything)  with a huge bone I had waiting for her the day I brought her home from K-9 jail.

And... one I got for Macy... they have different techniques for sure.
 As bones to chew on go, this girl has bit off more than she can chew! Teachers work such LONG hours! Who knew??? Add in that I teach special ed and am expected to work on legal documents pertaining to my students' education that can take 27 - 30 hours each on my own time AND that I'm in a graduate level program to earn my teaching credential... and you will know why I say I'm a terrible pet mom!

I have honestly asked myself if Macy would be better off living with the RottRovers... and while the Pro and Con sheet was mostly yes... I selfishly have decided I need her for my own mental health. I'm in over my head and feel like I'm sinking more every day... and my girl is the best part of my life. I never dreamed I'd be leaving her for so long teaching school! My heart aches for her. And when I'm home...I'm not here... always working on my laptop. Which may explain why I'm not blogging much. I try to give Macy the most I can!

I hope all of you are well.

Product Review: Blue Buffalo Boo Bars Mummy Morsels

Hello good pups and peeps of Blogville! Hope this finds you well! I'm still a latchkey pup... Mean old Momma works so much! I had to drag her out of bed on her day off to take the pictures for my review!

O.K. M.O.M. - what'd the nice folks at Chewy send us this month?

They set you Blue Buffalo Boo Bars Mummy Morsels. (They appear to be sold out on the Chewy website so we are linking to the Blue Buffalo Pumpkin and Cinnamon Health bars.)

They come in fun shapes for Halloween - a pumpkin,

 And a ghost.

O.K. O.K. M.O.M.... enough talking! Gimme one three!  INCOMING!!!!


Yep! They're yummy!!!

O.K. M.O.M....I'm gonna hoover the grass for crumbs while you fill my post with blue words!

Creekhiker here. Here are the ingredients found on the interwebs: 
Oatmeal, Barley, Oat Flour, Pumpkin, Flaxseed (source of Omega 3 and 6 Fatty Acids), Cane Molasses, Carrots, Salt, Canola Oil (source of Omega 6 Fatty Acids), Cinnamon, Calcium Carbonate, L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), preserved with Mixed Tocopherols and Oil of Rosemary, Vitamin E Supplemet.
These are normally $8 as of this writing but Chewy is having a sale on the Health bars right now for $5. MB sure seems to love them and now that I'm gone so much, I need to stay on her good side! 

Take it away Macy Blue! 

 Whooo Hooo! (As long as M.O.M. has a crowbar in that wallet of hers, maybe she'll hire me a dog walker!)
I give the Blue Buffalo Boo Bars Mummy Morselsfour paws up!

Product Review: Wellness Core Grain Free Turkey, Chicken Liver and Turkey Liver

Hello good people and pups of Blogville! Macy Blue here.  I'm just sittin' here all embarrassified...

It's not that we are last-minute-Lucys getting our review done.. That's par for the course around here. It's that my mom is gone so much with her new job, we had to take these pictures at the bum-crack of dawn! I'm barely awake! It's so hard being a Diva when your mom has a stupid teaching job and is gone from home 10 hours a day! And don't even look at our caca green pool...she has no time to clean that either! Harumph! I hang my head in shame!

Hey Macy Blue? Wanna try some Wellness Core Grain Free Turkey, Chicken Liver and Turkey Liver canned food?

Did you say foodables Mom???? Bring it on!!

 Oh Nom Nom!!! Momma, I need MORE! Let's show them how it looks while you make your blue words!

Creekhiker here. Another winner from Chewy! My biggest complaint is the cans need a can opener...took me 5 minutes to find one! (I'm so spoiled with those pop open cans!)

But other than that, Wellness Core Grain Free Turkey, Chicken Liver and Turkey Liver is a top quality product. 

Here are the ingredients from the website: 
Chicken, Turkey, Chicken Liver, Chicken Broth, Chicken Meal, Turkey Liver, Sweet Potatoes, Carrageenan, Guar Gum, Carrots, Apples, Spinach, Parsley, Blueberries, Broccoli, Kale, Ground Flaxseed, Salmon Oil, Salt, Chicory Root Extract, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Potassium Chloride, Iron Proteinate, Zinc Proteinate, Choline Chloride, Vitamin E Supplement, Cobalt Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Riboflavin Supplement, Sodium Selenite, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin B-12 Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Biotin, Vitamin D-3 Supplement.
And...because we are always on a tight budget, this food is about $5  a case more than our regular brand but that's within the range I would splurge on. Take it away Macy Blue.

It's a good thing I'm licking that fork still Momma...that was you can't hear me laughing! Did you folks catch that? Momma said "splurge!" Like she knows what that is! BOL!

I give Wellness Core Grain Free Turkey, Chicken Liver and Turkey Liver four paws up!
