Tasty Tuesday (#ChewyInfluencer)

Astrid is incredibly happy that it's finally her turn to do her monthly review as part of Chewy.com's Blogger Outreach Program. That's even despite the fact that, just like the kitties around here, Astrid is a very picky eater. She has flavors she loves and flavors she hates, and textures she loves and textures she hates, and morsel sizes that she loves and morsel sizes that she hates. Some days, she changes all that up and decides that she no longer likes a food that she loved just the day before. You gotta keep those humans on their toes, after all!

That all being said, Astrid is just as picky with her treats as she is with her regular food. Soft and chewy is her go-to when it comes to snacks. That's why I was so happy to see that this month, she could try out the tender Blue Buffalo Blue™ Stix™ pepperoni-style dog treats.

Given that bacon is one of Astrid's all-time favorite things in the whole wide world, that's the flavor we chose for her to try. Even better, pork is indeed the first ingredient in these treats. They also contain no chicken by-product meals, no corn, no wheat, no soy, and no artificial preservatives or flavors.

These treats sure did sound and look like a win to me. And, given the fact that Astrid was breathing down my neck as I photographed these treats, I was thinking she might find them a win, too.

So, did pup Astrid like them?

This blurry photo, in case you can't tell, is indeed Astrid gobbling down these Blue Buffalo Blue™ Stix™ treats! They're her favorite flavor, favorite chewy texture, and all around well-loved by this pup. They seem to be one of her new favorite treats, and they will very likely continue to make future appearances in her diet.

We hope all of you furiends of ours have a tasty Tuesday filled with lots of treats!

Our Doodle of the Day:

Did you know that today is National Pie Day? Well, it is!

Our Tip of the Day:
Today is one of those days when I ask you to, pretty please, not take my doodles as good advice! As you all certainly already know, ovens can be extremely dangerous to kitties and pups. Especially if your oven is on and at a high temperature, never leave its door open and unattended. This can lead to especially dangerous situations if you have an oven low to the ground, where a kitty or pup might be able to easily reach it. Their natural instincts would likely warn them to steer clear of a hot oven, but that is certainly no guarantee. There are also times when burns or other injury could occur before a cat or dog even realizes the danger. For example, a cat or dog prone to jumping may not notice the hot temperature before they decide to jump on an open oven door, such as one located off of the ground. So, always be aware of the proximity of your furbaby if you open the oven door. The heat can be both uncomfortable and injurious. If need be, block your kitty or pup from the kitchen while you are baking, so that no incidents can occur. As always, it's always better to be safe than sorry!

Of course we know that no one should be hanging onto a hot stove! Artists are allowed some freedom of expression, and I love this doodle!

TBT never leaves the stove door open, but he worries about the top burners. They are electric, so there isnt even a warning flame. So he always leaves pots on the front so it never occurs to us to even jump up to that area.
