Visits from Chewies from Chewy

I got home from the acupuncturist to find a familiar box sitting on the large front porch we have. CHEWY!

We were getting low on dog food so I made a stop on to order some (placing order the end part of last week and it was here today and shipping was FREE) as well as a surprise treat for Abby.

Sweet Potato treats.  Single ingredient and safe for sensitive tummies. They're dehydrated so they make a chewy/rawhide type treat.  Abby apparently has never had this type of treat before.

For I gave it to her, and she just carried it around in her mouth for  whilea, then I hear a noise and come back to this.

I killed it Mom!
Sigh.  Barkley loved those things, perhaps I'll do a demo with some turkey jerky just have to show her how you're supposed to eat them, not dismantle them.  She has no problems chewing on other things.

Mr. Rabbit sprung a leak.  Abby won't de-squeak her sturdy Kong Cozie stuffies (available at as well!)  She literally carries them around in her mouth and sleeps with them.   But she does like to make them squeak and sometimes a tooth catches an ear or a tail and over a few weeks, we have a small hole (overall they have held up better than all other plush toys).  Balls or flat toys that squeak are quickly de-squeaked but not her animal stuffies. Those are her fur-ends.

Mr. Rabbit wasn't a Kong toy so he had sprung a slightly larger tear above his tail, but the squeaker was intact. So Dr. Dad did some stuffie surgery while Abby waited in the waiting room with her favorite Kong Cozie Mr. Moose

Aren't you done yet?

Abby was quite happy to have her rabbit back and I saw her getting sleepy.  It wouldn't be long before she picks him up and heads to her dog bed.

Remember Abby - Dr. Dad isn't on call all the time so . . .


  1. Abby - what is wrong with you?????? Sweet potato chews are so yummy!!!! Mom makes us sweet potato chips in the oven, and she even eats them too. We are going to see if she will add some of those to our next Chewy order. Chewy rocks, they are always so thoughtful AND efficient.

    Woos- Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  2. Hmm, maybe I need some furiends that I don't dismantle. Momma says she's tired of picking up stuffing!

  3. I am laughing that she didn't know how to eat it!

  4. Wow! That was quite the treat. You are lucky. I am so sorry Mr. Rabbit is on the injured list. You look so sad without him.

  5. wow Abby you made pawtato confetti with that snacks... BRAVO!

  6. That looked like a yummy snack to me! Oh, and all my stuffie squeaky toys are immediately de-squeaked and unstuffed. After that I love them and keep them forever.

  7. You killed a sweet potato treat? Elsa is shaking her head. Not only does she like the dehydrating ones, she's been caught getting into the pantry and eating a whole raw one. Abby girl, you don't know what you're missing.
