Black & White Sunday: Weim-Wife for Easy

HEY! Easy? After the plea you sent on my blog post just before Crufts, I decided to make it my personal mission to find you a girlfriend! You’re one smart puppy, I mean, if Crufts isn’t the place to do it, then what is? right?

So… *drum-roll please*… look who we found… are you ready? You should probably sit down, she’s a bit of a stunner…

Meet Molly! Isn’t she beautiful? She’s three years old and single. Her mum was telling me she’s a bit of a tart, but don’t worry what she really meant was that she’s an exhibitionist and she showed me some photos of her with her, erm, ‘bits and pieces’ clearly on display. I think that just means she’s comfortable with her body! I mean, ‘if you’ve got it, flaunt it’ and all that. And she definitely has it!

Molly says not to worry about this dude with her..

weim boy

That’s her brother and she reckons he would sell her for a bone anyway. He seemed nice, Easy. I think you would get on. He didn’t have a great deal to say for himself but that’s probably because he was being fed treats at the time and y’know, priorities!

dreaming of easy

I  told Molly all about you, showed her your photo (I hope Mum doesn’t mind?) and erm… she seemed keen! So what do ya reckon, have we got ourselves a wedding on the cards?

P.S. I’m still trying to get all of my photos from Crufts loaded and edited. There are hundreds and I have LOTS to tell you, so please do watch this space. I’m sure you all understand though, love has to come first <3.

Word-full Wednesday: Crufts Eve Links and Leads

ellie dreams of Crufts

It’s seems like ages since we started the competition to win some of Ellie’s tickets on Facebook and gave them away. But now Crufts is upon us! Tomorrow marks the start of the four-day spectacular and we cannot wait. Although Ellie won’t be joining us of course, she still has dreams of what it would be like to win something at this giant celebration of dogs. We both agree she would easily walk away with the doggy dancing crown. Ellie does the best pirouette you ever did see, and we WILL show you one day (furry promise). Myfie wonders if there’s an eating competition, and naturally Millie thinks she’d take Best in Show! What about you? Which prize would be yours for the taking, do let us know!

Anyway, since the pups do miss out on the actual event, like many of you who are from overseas, I thought it might be handy to give you some links. Of course, I will be going, but only for one day so I too will want to know what’s going on for the rest of the time.

My freind and I (this is an actual human! I do know some, honest) have chosen to attend on Friday… for, well, no particular reason. Crufts is a great days entertainment whenever you can make it. If there is anything you would like to know about more specifically, or anything you want us to check out please do let me know in the comments. I will be most happy to. For example, Myfie has asked me to take some pictures of some cute looking girls. Well, he actually wants me to find him a wife, because apparently these posh pups like a bit of ruff! But yeah, whatever Myfie, I can’t do magic.

The action from the arena will be live streamed every day on YouTube, Huzzah! The arena is where all the ‘activities’ take place, the doggy dancing, the flyball and agility, demonstrations, breed judging… everything! Click on that there cute little picture link above, and be taken straight to the Crufts channel, subscribe and you will be able to see more than those of us who are attending will. Oh there’s such a sweet video right there on the home page, it gave me goosebumps!


For those of us in the UK, More 4 will be covering the event LIVE as usual with the lovely, Claire Balding hosting. You can also watch OnDemand and More4+1 should you miss it first time around.
I’m not sure if those outside of the UK can access this content, but what I think you WILL be able to do is vote in the ‘Friends for Life’ comp. You can view the entrants stories on the Crufts YouTube channel if you have difficulty doing so via the More 4 website, but cast your vote from here: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/crufts#vote – please have tissues at the ready for these beautiful stories.

Information as it happens will also be rolled out on the Crufts website: http://www.crufts.org.uk/
And if you can stand to listen to me bleating on about it, I will also be sharing information and fun bits and pieces via our social media channels 🙂

Lastly, I would love you to check out this very informative, and very serious press conference…

… My money’s on Fritz, what about yours?
Thanks for battling through this post, if we’ve missed anything please let us know!

Black & White Sunday: PawsomeBox in Review

We’ve got something a bit different to share this Back & White Sunday… Hurrah! The lovely folks at PawsomeBox asked if we would like to review one of their boxes, so of course we put all our paws up and said we would be delighted!

That was back in January, and I had completely forgotten about it to tell the truth, so it was a lovely surprise last week when the postman knocked on the door with a bright blue parcel in his hand. I was REALLY excited, it was my birthday this week so I naturally thought somebody had treated me! Alas, no, this parcel was most definitely not mine. Except it was really because I would always much rather things went to the dogs, I liken the feeling to how parents tell you they feel on Christmas morning when gifting their children presents. My mum always used to say ‘I love to see your little faces light up’ and while it might be sad, it’s also true that I feel this way when I give my motley crew a present or treat. In fact, I’d put money on me being more excited about it than they are. But anyway, I digress, on with the review…

WHAT IS PAWSOME BOX?
I suppose I should give a little explanation, right? Pawsome Box is a subscription based home delivery service, for dogs. Every month, you receive a parcel full of goodies for your little furries (or big ones). You can tailor the box to suit your requirements, or rather your dogs’ requirements by filling out their profile when you sign up. There are a few different pricing plans available, but you can get your paws on one for as little as £15.90 per month, with the contents guaranteed to be worth more than this… up to £30 I believe. Simple, right? For more information though, give them a visit over here: https://pawsomebox.co.uk/

SO WHAT HAPPENED?
Well, once I discovered said box was for my trio I couldn’t wait to show them. And they just KNEW it was for them.  They were jumping up and clawing and their little tails looked as though they may wag off. So I set the box down to laugh at the fact they couldn’t watch them open it.

Look at them snouts and noses going to work… they’re having so much fun!

Once I’d finished laughing at them they were done with the sniffing and exploring, I did just what Myfie’s face told me too… we opened it all up and investigated the contents.

SO WHAT DID WE GET?
Each of the boxes are themed, and this being the box for February it was all about Valentines Day. The box did come after the day itself, but I am sure any self-respecting dog owner will agree, love is not just for one day of the year! I was pleased and I know the pups were, with the theme of love for our very first box. Ellie paw notes

The boxes seem to have a good balance of treats, toys and hygiene related surprises. Ellie and I quickly nabbed the ‘Paw notes’ newsletter before Myfie got hold of it, thinking it was a toy. Shredding paper is oh-so-much-fun dontcha know? This little magazine style newsletter is a really nice touch, it lets you know what your box is all about, and has theme related articles and trivia. Ellie seemed to really enjoy reading it.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE GOOD STUFF?
Okay, okay… well naturally Myfie was straight in there for the food.

myfie treats pawsomebox
Hey! Myf… hows about you let us see what you actually have there, yeah?

myfie show treats pawsomebox

Much better. So as you can now see, we got some rawhide and chicken ball thingies which apparently tasted delicious! I like to think they chose this treat in particular because they knew the box was coming to a household with more than one dog. That’s a nice touch! There’s also a lamb flavoured stick treat there so I am counting on the fact that he can’t count. I do recall seeing both of these things in the local pet store so know them to be of high quality… not that it would matter much to Myf.

millie earbuds pawsomebox

Millie didn’t seem too impressed when I handed her these safety buds for cleaning out her ears… which I find odd, since she tries to eat the human ones if she ever finds any lying around. It might have had something to do with the fact she had just been groomed, though. It is just the buds, you can buy the cleaning solution separately.

Millie heart treats pawsomebox
Anyway, she perked up a little when she saw these cute heart-shaped training treats. Phew.

ellie pawsomebox squeeker teddy

Ellie bypassed the treats and went straight for the toys, as she always does… particularly if they are furry and squeaky. The little blanket was both of those things. It looked to me like something you would maybe give a puppy? It was like a comfort blanket with a head. Ellie tried to suckle it, but couldn’t get the angle quite right so she and Millie played tug with it instead and it is now in the ‘hospital’ awaiting major surgery.

ellie pawsomebox heart
This thing though, this thing is still going strong. It a heart-shaped, hard rubber (latex is it?) squeaker toy and all three of the little tinkers LOVE this. Why? Because it’s LOUD! and really irritating fun! Oddly this also finds its way into the hospital for frequent visits, we’ve no idea how it gets there (ahem!) perhaps it’s missing its old friend blanket bear?

And that’s our loot!

SO WHAT’S THE VERDICT?
Hmm. This is a tricky one. The thought of getting a little pick-me-up delivered in the post every month is so appealing. The pups were genuinely excited by it and knew it was for them. You could almost say it was worth the money for that feeling alone. It was a lot of fun watching their little faces as each item was pulled out of the box.
I don’t doubt the quality of the products in the box.  In fact I had a little squizz on Amazon to see if I could price some of the bits up online as I, personally hadn’t heard of some of the brands (which is part of the appeal, too). My research showed that actually, yes, you are making a saving if you were to buy these items individually. So it’s reassuring to know that you aren’t getting ‘ripped off’ in some way.

The downside though, (and I imagine this is true of every box subscription service, no matter the type) is that I probably wouldn’t have selected these items to actually purchase myself.
If I had just one dog, I can see it as something I would definitely consider. The amount of treats and product in there is about the level you would expect for the price I think, for them to get a good amount of enjoyment and time out of it until the next one arrives. For three dogs though, unless you had the money to buy them one each (which I DEFINITELY do not pups, so don’t even THINK about it), it probably isn’t something I would invest in.

Please do try it out for yourselves though, if you are interested. You don’t HAVE to sign up for the full year so if you want some box-shaped fun delivered to your door give PawsomeBox a try and let us know what YOU think.

DISCLAIMER: PawsomeBox did not pay us to review, nor did they influence us on what we should say.

#52SnapShotsofLife – Week One: New

We are a little late to the game, (still in time though. YAY!!) and are excited to take part in The Lazy Pit Bull’s ’52 Snapshots of life’ photo challenge. We will be posting both here and on Instagram if you would like to join us? Yaa!
Here is the list of themes for the year, which you can find on The Lazy Pit Bull’s website and Instagram feed:

52-Snapshots-of-Life-blog

The theme for this week is ‘NEW’.

second chance 1

This image was taken this week from a NEW rescue centre that is opening in our area. All of the pups there are rescued and brought over from a life of abuse and/or neglect in Romania. They are all looking for a brand NEW life, in a brand NEW forever home… and right now they even have a brand NEW temporary home, as the shelter has just relocated.

For me, I am looking forward to perhaps getting involved in a brand NEW challenge as I offer to volunteer in some way when they are up and running. So it’s likely you will hear a lot more about this wonderful NEW venture right here on the blog.
