Treats on Wednesday (#ChewyInfluencer)

We try not to give you all reviews to read two days in a row. But, alas, that is what we are doing this week. So, as part of the Blogger Outreach Program, today Astrid has some thoughts to share on Dr. Tim's™ Natural Beef Chips.

Beef hearts are the only ingredient in these treats. They are freeze-dried, and they can be given as treats, or mixed with water for a moist snack. I decided to use them as the former, and offered them to Astrid as a typical treat.

Astrid is especially a fan of soft and chewy treats, so I wondered what she would think of these treats that are not necessarily soft, but that are also not hard and crunchy. The answer is, she likes them!

Though I failed to get photographic evidence of Astrid snacking on the Dr. Tim's™ beef heart treats, this lady pup really did end up enjoying them. Upon her first taste, I could tell Astrid was investigating the texture as she tossed it around in her mouth. Anything too crunchy usually gets tossed to the floor, but these must have been deemed soft enough to devour, because after a moment, she gobbled it right up, and then three more after that.

(Disclaimer: As members of the Blogger Outreach Program, we received Dr. Tim's™ Natural Beef Chips in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are our own. 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.)

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday!


Yesterday we finished our Ten Days of Tortie series (at least, until we start our next one in a couple of months). We're continuing on with our doodles starring furbabies who we believe too often get pushed to the back burner. So, what furbabies are up next? Those who are specially abled!

As the human mom to a hind limb paralyzed kitty, a kitty with a head tilt and facial nerve paralysis, and a now three-toed pup, I love me some specially abled furbabies. Yet, I rarely manage to find goods out there starring specially abled cuties. So, that's why they're next in our lineup.

That all being said, because we're just a tad bit strange here, we're not just doodling plain and simple specially abled furbabies. Rather, we're yet again getting festive, and we're channeling A Christmas Carol and calling this series Tails of Tiny Tim.

Tails of Tiny Tim: Day 1

Our Tip of the Day:
It's still Pet Diabetes Awareness Month, and so we have another tip today for those who might know a diabetic kitty or pup. Yesterday we mentioned the importance of diet for a diabetic furbaby, and today we're mentioning how exercise is also significant for keeping diabetes regulated. Just as with humans, a proper activity level can help to keep diabetes under control, this especially being the case for a diabetic kitty or pup who is overweight and in need of losing weight. That being said, though, exercise and activity level also can affect blood glucose. For this reason, talk to your veterinarian regarding a healthy level of exercise for your diabetic furbaby, and how to best monitor their activity level, weight, and diabetic status.

I'm so glad Astrid enjoyed the beef heart treats. I imagine Ruby would like them as well especially since they are soft and chewy.

We were separated at birth, I'm convinced of it. A Christmas Carol is my very favorite story EVER!!! I can't wait to watch Muppet Christmas Carol again very, very soon!

My Hairy slobbery sister Cinnamon LOVES those treats! She also likes the freeze dried Liver ones too. And she does not like crunchie treats either. I too like stealing her freeze dried treats!
And we LOVE Tiny Tim fro a Christmas Carol...we can't wait for tomorrow!
