Calling Birds and Chewies (#ChewyInfluencer)

I'll admit, I don't like posting reviews two days in a row. So, I really do apologize for doing just that. But, I failed to promptly request our items from Chewy.com this month, as part of their Blogger Outreach Program. That means, by no one's fault but my own, our items arrived a bit late. And since we want to get them both done by the New Year, and Wednesday is typically pup Astrid's turn to post, here we are again with her review.

Astrid's reviews are, generally, easier than that of the finicky kitties around here. Don't get me wrong, Astrid is one picky pup herself. I've mentioned before how we have yet to find a fruit or veggie, in any form, that she'll actually accept as worthy. Honestly, the girl won't even eat a potato chip. Who doesn't like potato chips?!? She also refuses pasta, bread, you know, pretty much everything that makes our mouths water. But, I digress.

Luckily, though, unlike with the kitties around here, Astrid has a not so picky love of treats. That is, as long as they are soft and chewy treats. Those are just about her favorite thing. That, and cat food. Anyway, that all being said, I knew I had found a sure winner with Nutro™ Moist-n-Chewy Bites in hickory smoke BBQ.


These treats are 100% natural, with genuine chicken being the first ingredient. What's more, these seriously soft treats looked like they were made just for chewy-loving Astrid.


As if I wasn't already pretty darn sure that Astrid would love these, she let me know her early vote by breathing down my neck during the above photo shoot.


Talk about puppy dog eyes. Who could say no to that face? I sure couldn't. Astrid got that very treat (and plenty more) immediately after I snapped this shot.

And what does Astrid have to say about these hickory smoked BBQ Nutro™ Moist-n-Chewy Bites? She thinks they're just about the best thing since sliced bread. Except, she won't eat bread. So, I guess it's more accurate to say that she would rank these delectable chewies right up there with cat food.

We only review products that we believe will be of interest to our readers, and we never recommend a product that we do not believe in.)


Though Astrid loved her delicious chicken BBQ treats, she's not so sure about today's bit of art. It's the Fourth Day of Christmas, which brings us to the calling birds. After mulling over what on earth to do with this one, I settled on the following, and neither Astrid nor I really know what to make of it.


Well, tin can callers or not, we wish you a very merry Fourth Day of Christmas!

Our Tip of the Day:
Although healthy birds often pose little to no threat, always be aware of your furbaby's activity around unknown birds and their feces. Bird droppings can potentially be a source of a variety of fungi or bacteria, which can most commonly pose a threat if inhaled. For this reason, always be especially cautious when you come across bird droppings on walks or other outdoor excursions with your furbaby, or even when around unknown pet birds. Of course, such diligence should be employed when around any animal unfamiliar to you.

  2. I am happy to see Astrid has another yummy treat she likes. Have you ever given her Smart Food? I know corn isn't good for furbabies, but I have never met a cat or dog that didn't like that stuff ( I only give a little piece without the kernel). I love your drawing, very clever v calling birds. And another great tip , luckily my cats are all inside and we don't have to worry about birds. :)

  8. Dogs like the darnedest things. We ordered promptly from Chewy this month but didn't get our review stuff until 10 days later so we posted twice this week too.
