Happy New Year 2019

Happy New Year from ABC

Happy New Year 2019

As 2018 comes to an end, I want to take a moment to reflect on the lives of Artie, Buddy, and Coby. With the new year approaching, one of my goals is to share more stories and photos of these three with my readers. They bring so much joy to my life and they can yours too! So follow along as 2019 brings new adventures and fun!

It’s hard to believe that Artie (the oldest) will be 10 years old in February. I remember the day we brought him home. We were immediately in love and have been since that day. Artie is a unique boy – he doesn’t need much in the way of attention and his gentleness shines as he aims to please his mommy and daddy. He loves to hunt small critters, he chews on his paws continually (due to allergies),  he suffers with anxiety yet loves walks, the dog park, and his brother, Buddy, to pieces!

Buddy and Artie

Buddy is the middle boy, who just like a child, is always looking for attention! He will be 10 years old in September, which means he and Artie are just six months apart. Artie and Buddy share the same bloodline and are best friends!! They love to kiss each other, cuddle, and sleep in the same cage (house). Buddy suffers from reoccurring bladder stones and has undergone two surgeries in less than two years. He’s on a very strict prescription diet and has to take a couple different medications every day. Even so, Buddy loves to eat and you can frequently find him sneaking into Coby’s food dish!

Coby, our rescue, is the youngest at four years old (9/11/14). He has a spitfire personality – so sweet yet so sneaky! His brothers have a love/hate relationship with him due to his dominant personality. His sweet and innocent personality can quickly change, which means his brothers have difficulty trusting him. Even so, Coby brings so much laughter and entertainment to our family because of his fun and loving personality.

These are my babies in a nutshell. I hope you will follow along as begin to document more from their lives. And as 2019 approaches, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Take care and hug your babies (human or furry).

Purina Beyond Wild Prey-Inspired Turkey, Liver & Duck Recipe Canned Dog Food

As with most dogs, Artie, Buddy, and Coby love to try new foods. When I opened the first can of Purina Beyond Wild Prey-Inspired food, their sniffers went crazy! They couldn’t wait to get a taste of this turkey, liver, and duck deliciousness! Little did they know, this high protein combination helps maintain their lean muscles and is a good source of vitamin A, iron, and essential amino acids. With real turkey as the number one ingredient and no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or poultry by-product meal, this food pleases ABC and their mommy!

Zignature Turkey Limited Ingredient Food

One of our favorite days of the week is Chewy delivery day! Artie, Buddy, and Coby can hardly contain themselves when I bring in a Chewy box from the porch. We all sit on the floor together to open the box, then the sniffing begins! This box contained a new canned food for Artie! Buddy has to have prescription food and Coby has a sensitive system so we try to keep him on the same food all the time. So Artie gets to enjoy this Zignature Limited Ingredient Turkey food all by himself!

All three dogs get dry food with a heaping teaspoon of wet food added. I like that this food is really moist and easy to scoop. It also hides pills really well. Artie takes an allergy pill daily and right now he’s taking a pill for his leg that he hurt. This food is great for hiding the pills because it’s so easy to stir. It’s also so tasty that Artie doesn’t take a breath before devouring it all!

I like that this food has limited ingredients and it’s grain free. For a full list of the key benefits of this food, see below.

Key Benefits

  • This grain-free, limited ingredient formula is made with one protein source and only a handful of other ingredients, creating a clean recipe with ingredients you can count on.
  • Made with farm-raised Turkey from the American Midwest.
  • As a natural source of prey in the wild, Turkey is an exceptional source of protein that’s also low in saturated fat, rich in Selenium, and a good source of Riboflavin and Phosphorus.
  • Free of the most common potential canine allergens: corn, wheat, soy, dairy, and chicken, making this recipe ideal for pups with sensitivities and picky eaters.
  • Wholesome fruits and vegetables round out the recipe with powerful antioxidants, and fiber-rich, low-glycemic carbohydrates.

Frisco Pantry Pack Dog Poop Bags

Frisco Pantry Pack Dog Poop Bags

When I ordered these waste bags, I had no idea how helpful they were actually going to be. My husband and I are not good about cleaning up ABC’s waste immediately and this has become an issue. Coby has the nasty habit of eating his brother’s poop (YUCK). Not only is it yucky, but it’s not good for him.

I’ve been brainstorming ways to store bags so that they are easy to grab when walking out the door with the dogs. But my ideas were as good as this! Frisco Dog Poop Bags come in one large roll of 300 durable bags. The roll fits in a box with a dispensing die-cut that releases one bag at a time so you can simply grab it and go! The bags are easy to tear off and easy to open. For those who have experience with bags, you know how difficult they can be to open. These are simple!

If you are looking for affordable convenient waste bags for home, I highly suggest these. These wouldn’t necessarily be convenient for travel or walks (unless you tear some off), but they are perfect for your home needs. Check them out at Chewy.com!

Artie’s 9th Birthday Treats

Artie’s 9th Birthday Treats

It’s hard to believe that Artie, the oldest of the three, turned nine years old on February 18th. I remember the day we brought him home! It was such a happy day for Dave and I. Our first dog! Who would have guessed there would be two more to come after him. Although they can costly at times, they are worth every penny!

One way we try to prevent vet costs (especially as they age) is by taking care of their teeth. Brushing their teeth never became a habit for us, but there are treats designed to control and remove disease-causing plaque and tartar. Greenies Dental Treats are a favorite of ABC. Lucky for us, they are also good for them. Each tasty chew features added vitamins and minerals, and is formulated to provide complete and balanced nutrition for adult dogs. Check out the key benefits of Greenies below:

Our New Flexi Comfort Retractable Tape Dog Leash

With a family of three dogs, high-quality leashes are a must! Flexi brand leashes have always been our favorites, but the latest Flexi New Comfort Retractable Tape Dog Leash has risen above the rest in both comfort and high-tech retraction.

When my husband and I took the dogs for a walk today, we noticed a difference between our older Flexi leashes and this new one. This new leash has tape that is 5/16 inches in width rather than a cord (width depends on the leash size). It’s grip is very comfortable, it has an easy locking system, and the tape runs in and out smoothly which allows our dogs to roam freely.

One of the coolest things about this leash is the ability to add on accessories such the Flexi Multi Box Dog Leash Accessory or Flexi LED Lighting System. The multi box can be used to store treats or waste bags. It is attached to the bottom of the leash (see picture below).

In fact, the daily recommended feeding instructions on the package states two treats daily for dogs the size of ABC. A perfect treat for these babies. Besides the size, these treats are good for ABC. The first ingredient is real chicken, followed by real pumpkin. If you are looking for a healthy treat for your pup, I suggest checking these out at Chewy.com.
