Charlotte Saturday

A few people have asked if Charlotte was Nola's daughter, so I figured I'd clear that up now. No,  Mousy was not Nola's daughter, or in any way related to her. Nola is a spayed female and has never had a litter. :)

PetBox: March and April

     Hey, y'all! I'm a SpokesDoggy for PetBox, a pet subscription box for your dog or cat, so here's what I've thought of them so far. March was crazy busy, so we missed posted about it then. Ooops!

     First up, the March box. I absolutely loved this! Everything in it was incredible. It had:

  • Skineez tug toy, which is my favorite kind of toy ever.

  • Organic Oscar shampoo and conditioner, which turns out to be one of the only shampoos I can use on my sensitive skin.

  • BOGO (Buy One Give One) sample bag of kibble. I'm on home cooked, but these make great training treats!

  • GRIN: Joint Treats. Tasty!

  • Vetericyn Wound Care Spray. Thankfully we haven't needed to use this, but with four active dogs in the house and living on a mini farm, it's bound to come in handy.

    This box gets a 5/5 star rating!

     Now, April's box. In contrast with March's box, I wasn't a big fan of this box. There was one thing that is the most incredible invention ever, but everything else is just really...meh. This box contained:
  • VIVAMUNE Healthy Chews for gut, skin and joints. Contains soy, which I'm allergic to. Even if I wasn't, Mom doesn't feed us (or herself) any soy.

  • Little bow tie, unsure of where it's from. Cute, and Auggie liked it.

  • GRIN Dental Chews. I've been sent three PetBoxes so far, and all of them have had GRIN products. Decent treats with okay ingredients, and they're tasty.

  • Urine Off! Spray. Always a good thing to have on hand.

  • The Fifth Paw. OMD this is the coolest thing ever! You attach it to your leash and you can clip your poop bag holder, keys and used poop bags to it. No more carrying a bag of warm dog poop in your hand. This was the only thing I (well, actually it was more Mom's thing than mine...) were really happy with.

  • Life Is Pawfect, The Petographer. Little book of dogs dressed up and posed. Not Mom's thing, and I obviously can't do anything with it.

     This box gets a 2.5/5 rating. 

     The first PetBox we were sent was nice, the second phenomenal, and the third was bleh. Interested to see what next month brings!

Just Some Random

     Hi, everyone! First off, thank you so much for all the POTP you gave Mom yesterday; it worked! Her first shoot as a "professional" photographer was a hit!

    Second, I'm going to ask again for some POTP. Phoenix goes in to be spayed (finally) in the morning.

     Third, Mom and I will hopefully be taking the AKC's Community Canine Test (an advanced Canine Good Citizen test, since I passed that will flying colors) sometime between late April and early June. It all depends on the evaluator in the area. I'm not worried at all; I live for this stuff! Mom's been searching for more Rally trials, but our area is sorely lacking in the dog community department.

     Fourth, I don't like it when Mom leaves me like she did yesterday. It has forced me to take desperate measures to keep her home, as you can see in the below photo.

Just where do you think you're going?

Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola

Cut The Grass, Would Ya?

The grass isn't actually as long as it looks. I'm laying down in both of these. It's so vibrant and pretty, the peeps can't bear to cut it yet!

PS: Mom has her first "official" photography job today, and she's super nervous! If you could send some POTP her way (to calm her ass down), I'd appreciate it!
