Chewy Review = Solid Gold Lamb Jerky Treats

Hello good pups and peeps of Blogville! Macy Blue here! Time for another review from the best pet delivery service ever!!! Hey Mom! What's need me to review this month?

Oh goodie!! It's a foodable! They sent me Solid Gold Lamb Jerky Treats!

Those look yummy! Pardon me while Momma tortures me and I drooooool!

O.K. ENOUGH Momma!  Gimme gimme!!

Nom nom nom hoover and... there's the lick! (Momma likes my Licker!)

Well, that pawltry sample was quite tasty but I'm not really sure...Momma, May I have another? 


Wow Momma is good with those flying treat shots! I'm gonna let her tell you all the technical stuff she likes you all to know. 

Creekhiker here: 

The ingredients in Solid Gold Lamb Jerky Treats - straight from the website: 

Lamb, Brown Rice, Oats, Lamb Meal, Tapioca Starch, Lamb Liver, Brown Sugar, Glycerine, Molasses, Salt, Garlic Powder, Natural Smoke Flavor, Phosphoric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Mixed Tocopherols, Cinnamon, Rosemary.
 All good stuffs. The price is a little higher than we like to spend but I think these would make excellent training treats... 

Back to Macy Blue: 

O.K. Mom...Here's a big old Licker to tell you what I think: 

I love the  Solid Gold Lamb Jerky Treats! Four Paws up! I give them four paws up!

Momma, always looking out for her pocketbook says she may or may not buy them based on price. GRRRR

Neither Creekhiker nor Macy Blue were compensated for this review. gave Macy Blue one case of  Solid Gold Lamb Jerky Treats  to devour...or not.

It's My Barkday Tomorrow!!!

We gone pawty, like it's my barkday!!! Oh HI good pups and peeps of Blogville! Macy Blue here!

My momma has had her nose the computer for weeks working on taxes but... tomorrow is my barkday and Mom said we should celebrate a bit early cause all our peeps n pups aren't available at the same time! But that's ok.... more time for meeeee!

      Don't I look Happy!!???

This morning, I went out to breakie with my mom and my Auntie Rottrover. I gots pancakes and bacons!

Then, I got to go to SmartPet and pick out my barkday giffs! I got a smaller toy with the fantastic loud squeakers I loves!!! They are pawfect for when Momma talks on the phone!!! Teeeheee!! And Momma did not wrap it - she knows I don't like wrapped pressies! Good job Mom!!

I got some barkday cookies and Mom picked out a puzzle toy that I solved in like three minutes...but hey, whatever makes you feel good about leaving me Mom.... Seriously, any excuse for cookies is fine by me!

Later, we'll hike with Otto Rotto or, as Siri calls him: Auto Rado. He's getting a bath today so we probably won't get a swimmie...

Tomorrow, we are taking my pal Buster to the dog park. Bussie can't be off leash cause he won't come back for hours... silly boy. So, his mom wants to have us show her what the dog park is all about in hopes he can have some off leash time where he can't climb up a mountain!

Then, Mom is taking me out for ice cream! And later, I'll go for a swimmie hike with my buddy Barticus.

So...busy celebrations around here. Mom's doing her level best to make it pawsome but apparently she forgot what I really wanted: access to her account! That mean old Mom changed her password on me! Grumph!

She Giveth; She Taketh Away

Those of you who follow us on Facebook or Instagram probably know that I started "bed training" Macy a few weeks ago.

#proof of the FOUR in a row bed #cuddles I've gotten #briberyworks @chewy #cookies #treats 💕💜💓💛 my silly #pup #dogs #macyblue

That came to a grinding halt when, the day before my birthday, I picked up norovirus at school. Eight days later and I'm still not right in the gut! We had done zero days of bed training from the 1st of the month. I had a relapse at work this past Tuesday...found out I had made myself sicker by taking Imodium.  I spent the afternoon really ill and was so relieved when it was over around 8pm. We turned in early and I was so grateful for the sleep. Hard, stupid sleep. 

Suddenly my bed was moving! Living in earthquake country, I always try to steal a glance at the clock just to get a sense of time before we lose power. It was 10:54 and that was no earthquake! It was Macy Blue! Getting on my bed with NO cookies in sight! In the middle of the night!!!!!! 

I petted her a bit but was so exhausted... we both slept til 7:30 am! I was over joyed that she was still by my side come morning and we cuddled and lingered until I heard her tummy growling! 

I couldn't wait to call Mom and tell her I was certain we'd turned a corner. 

Cut to...

Wednesday afternoon, a sunny bedroom just down the hall. 

Since Macy Blue was so sweet to sleep all night with me, it clearly must be time to continue her training. Instead of putting nap treats in her bed, I placed them in her "bed lure" spots:  One on top of the stairs, one on the foot of the bed and three in her "spot." 

She gobbled them up, sniffed for more and... jumped down and curled up in her bed!

Sigh... Three steps forward... five steps back.
