Black & White Sunday: Happy Mother’s Day

It was Mother’s Day here in the UK, today. For those of you who also celebrated, we would like to send you lots of love and schlurps… well, and to those across the pond who celebrate later, too, for that matter! We love you all!

I spoiled my very own Mummy today, of course, but I was surprised by my very own furry children too.

Firstly, they got me a lovely card and cleverly signed it themselves. But, better than that, they sat together and let me take a lovely picture! Trust me when I say, that’s rare.

They also got me this plaque with a warning lovely heart-felt message. You can tell by Millie’s face just how much the sentiment is felt here.

Flower sniffers

Lastly, the thoughtful bunch presented me with some flowers. Aren’t they gorgeous, I do LOVE tulips, such a happy flower.

And apparently they smell quite nice…

I actually think the pups mistook them for food, since I distinctly heard a little crunch before I managed to rescue them. Who were these for did you say, guys?
It doesn’t matter anyway, presents you can share are always the best kind and I would have been more than happy with the love and attention I get every day of the year.

Do you treat your mum on Mother’s Day?

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…

weim wife spot

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.

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 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 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.

Black & White Sunday: Winter Walkies

We love it here at Pawed Towers when true winter hits. We love walking in the darkness when the less braver souls come out to play. That’s just as well considering it gets dark so early this time of year. The pups seem, to me at least, to be more focused on what they are doing in the dark. It’s especially good for Ellie, she appears far less distracted and ready to bark at the littlest thing… of course, there is actually less out there to bark AT but that’s beside the point.

The bad thing is that photos are much harder to get, not only because of the light situation but because the pups seem far less inclined to stop what they’re doing and give me a little pose. Rude of them, I know!

Anyway, since this is what we have been doing a lot of lately we thought we’d share some of the photos with you… warts and all!

Ice Ice Myfie

Myfie seems to love the way that the ice crunches under his paws… I worry about his little pads, but apparently it’s fine for them to walk on!

Myfie Pee Mail

…and it doesn’t matter how cold it is there is always time to send and receive a but of pee-mail, right?

mucky myf bw

Myfie views the dirt he comes home with as a badge of honour!

Millie side ice

Millie is a proper little girlie, she likes to go out dressed to match the weather; sparkly top to match the sparkly ground!

millie sit ice

…and who cares if it’s cold? It makes the prettiest seat ever!

millie zoom

Sparkles are so much fun!

dark street

Do you ever wonder how much more than us pups can see?

ellie looks

Ellie loves to have a good look around on her evening walks!

elli look out

I sometimes wonder if she thinks she’s looking into the future!

ellie tongue!

Well, whatever she sees she looks happy about it, and you can’t ask for more than that!

Can anybody solve the riddle for us? Do you prefer a daytime or an evening stroll… and why?

Black & White Sunday: Pup Takeover

Myfie: Hey guys 😀 It’s Myfie here
Ellie: And Me!
Millie: And most impawtantly, me!… do you see what I did there?

Myfie: Yeah hilarious, but I am in charge today! My idea and I’m the boss. So there, shush! Where was I?
Ellie: You were trying to sound clever.
Millie: He IS clever, Ellie. The cleverest… I ❤ you, Myfie.
Ellie: *Yawn* Can you just get on with it if you’re gonna do this please?

Myfie: Yeah so… Hi! Mum hasn’t posted for a long time
Millie: And we were worried our fans missed us!
Myfie: Ahem… No, we missed YOU guys in blogville and we wondered what you were all up to? Mum is being reeaaallly lazy just lately, and sulking loads
Ellie: MYFIE!! That’s so mean, you can’t say that!
Myfie: Well that’s what it’s looked like to me!

Ellie: Mum has been poorly, and she’s worried she’s let everybody down and she’s been a bit sad recently.
Millie: Tell them how ace we are though. We’ve been looking after her and everything for ZERO PUBLICITY.
Ellie: That’s our job, Millie! Our job is to love, that’s all.
Myfie: So what about the work in the Shed!?
Ellie: That’s… we do that because it’s fun! And if mum sells loads of collars, she’ll buy us many Dentastix (other brands are available 😉 )
Millie: I need to speak to my agent!

Myfie: Right so anyway, since mum has been ‘poorly’ and what not, we thought we’d just take to our paws and do this thing ourselves. And to be perfectly honest, we’ll do a much better job. We know how this thing works by now!
Millie: You’re so right, I ❤ you, Myfie. You’re the only thing I love more than myself.

Millie: Here’s my selfie…
Myfie & Ellie: NOT YET!!!

millie blogger

Millie: Why not?? Too many words without a picture of me! mum wouldn’t do it like this!
Myfie: Well it should have been ME first, I’m the writer!!
Ellie: Don’t mean to sound like a know-it-all but you should have put it at the top. I thought you said this was easy and you could do better?
Myfie: Know-it-all!

Myfie: Here I am, some sort of annoying stain next to me though. :p

Myfie Ellie Bloggers

Ellie: HEY! I wasn’t ready.
Myfie: Hehehehe. Can we have a treat now? This is done, right?
Ellie: Who’s gonna do THAT? Mum doesn’t even know we are doing this!
Myfie: I didn’t think of that 😦 … what was the POINT!? I’m outta here!
Millie: At least people got to see my our pretty face faces!

Myfie: Come on! Let’s go make big eyes at mum so we get treats anyway!
Millie: You’re a genius, Myfie. I ❤ you!

*Myfie and Millie, gone like a herd of elephants*

Ellie: OI! WE AREN’T DONE!! What about the editing and the posting and stuff??

Myfie: *from afar* Pah ha! You snooze, you lose!! Make sure my name is BIG!!

Ellie: *grumble, grumble*
