#Chewyinfluencer Fun with Fruitables Whole Jerky

 It's time for some #Chewyinfluencer FUN!!
Let me tell you, Mama is very impressed with the new and exciting way we now order our #chewyinfluencer products! Mama can order our #chewyinfluencer products at the same time she is buying our treats, toys and other snacks. Just one little click and one little code and....

Our review product is here, with all our other goodies, usually within just TWO days!
Easy Peasy!
This month we chose two different products, one that Arty will review next week and this delicious bag of nomminess, also known as Fruitables Whole Jerky natural dog treats!
Mama chose the Grilled Bison for us to try!

I thought she had gotten the BACON jerky like Murphy and Stanley are trying, so at first I might have been a bit disappointed BUT I think the Bison Jerkey might be even BETTER!!!

Looks like they pass all the Mama requirements...
  • 100% Bison...the only other ingredient is natural bison flavor!!
  • It is a Limited Ingredient Treat so it makes it great for Arty and his allergeez!
  • It's made in our great country, the USA!!

It LOOKS  and SMELLS like the jerky Daddy eats!!

Lets go Mama, time for TASTE TESTING!!
(We know they will taste better than how Mama's NY Giants are playing this year!)

Here we are being VERY patient while Mama tells us to WAIT with the delicious nomminess right in front of our noses!

The look like jerky, but they break apart real easy and aren't as crunchy like you might think....

OMD...I was hesitant at first, but once I took the first bite I was hooked!! 

We give these a solid 8 paws up and hoe Mama will get these for us soon!!
As #chewyinfluencers, we were given a bag of Fruitables Whole Jerkey in exchange for ours(and Mama's) true blue opinion!

Don't forget to pack up your Picnic Basket and join us tomorrow for the Blogville Picnic and Barn Dance!! 
Look for the Blog Hop tomorrow and check out all the events!!

We are joining the Chewy.com Blogger Network Blog Hop!! 
Thanks to Koru Bear and Oz for hosting!


Travel Tuesday - Mini BAR Wrap Up

Happy Travel Tuesday!!
Before we get started, we want to apologize if we aren't around much in the next week or so.  We are getting ready for the picnic...and Mama says she is planting Rosy's or digging Rosy's..or doing something with Rosy's...so although we DID make Mama put some posts together over the weekend, we may not be commenting too much.
Anyway...blame Mama not us!

Now...where were we...OH that's right, this week we are wrapping up our Mini BAR vacation...
Come on Mama...Efurryone is waiting and YOU are the one that wants to see the lighthouse!!!

We did warn you about the lighthouse this week, right?? That's right, we let Phod's pawrents sit with us and we headed to the Cape Meares Lighthouse with Murphy, Stanley and their peeps following in their Big Red Truck!!

We have to admit, it was a beautimous day to visit a lighthouse! The skies were so very blue!!

Mama went in and took a little tour of the lighthouse, she really enjoyed all the glass doohickies!

She was in there a long time, and we were positive the lighthouse monster finally ate her. But, with Daddy's help, we found her!!

After the lighthouse, we took a short hike over to the Octopus Tree...It is really cool looking, but Mama wouldn't let us climb on it. Why are Mamas so mean sometimes???


After we saw the Octopus tree, the Fellowship of the Rock made it's journey. You can read more about it over at Murphy and Stanley's 'cause our Mama's pictures just didn't do it justice...something about flip flops...rocks...and not wanting to fall. Click HERE to read more about the Fellowship of the Rock.

When we completed our rock mission we went back to camp, ate dinner and then headed out to watch the sunset on our last night together.
It was pretty chilly outside and I was cold...so I asked Daddy
if he would snuggle with me and keep me warm.


I sure am lucky I am a small dog...and a Daddy's boy teeheehee.

It was worth it though, it was a beautimous sunset!!

When we got home, Mama and Daddy went to visit with the peeps at Murphy and Stanley's wheelie house, but Arty and I were too tired and just wanted to sleep!

Looks like Stanley was really tired too...he sure is a good sleepy snuggler, isn't he??

We woke up nice and early and took Mama to hunt for a good place to take our Goodbye Group Picture. 
Arty found the pawfect spot!

We went back and got Murphy and Stanley and their peeps, Flat Phod and Lee and their peeps...and even Flat Ruby came with us for our group shot!

All the Mamas must have taken 87 million pictures..AND they brought treats, so our biggest decision was who we should look at and say "cheesie burger"!

We took our final pictures....ate some lunch, and then it was time for Murphy and Stanley to head to the Gorge and Phod and Hailey's peeps to head to Portland, where they had to catch a plane to get home!

We didn't have to leave until the next day, so we spent some time relaxing and playing in sunpuddles until it was time to pack up camp and head home!

Mama and Daddy promised we would be going on another wheelie house vacation next Spring and Summer...Something about them not being able to leave their Rosy's...sounds like Mama is developing a very bad gardening habit!

Thanks for tagging along on our trip to the Mini BAR. We had a BLAST, and hope we can get together with some of our friends again next year!!
