Hi Folks,
Yep we are sooo late in doing our Mr. Chewy review.  It is a perfect example of how our mommy's life is right now...late...late....late.....sooooo way back around the first of August Mr. Chewy delivered us a box with our treats in it.  Momma had choose Turducken's cos we have never tried these before.

Here is some reasons why she choose them:

Merrick Kitchen Bites Turducken Grain-Free Biscuits Dog Treats, 9-oz bag

Merrick Kitchen Bites are all-natural, oven-baked biscuits based on Merrick’s innovative and award-winning classic can recipes. Kitchen Bites start with real deboned meat as the #1 ingredient for a single source of high quality protein, then fresh fruits and vegetables, for a crunchy and healthy treat for dogs. Unlike many biscuits that include rice, flour or wheat, Kitchen Bites are grain-free and gluten-free. These Turducken biscuits are oven-baked with real turkey, duck and chicken.
Key Benefits
  • Grain-free and gluten-free biscuits
  • Real deboned meat is the first ingredient
  • Dogs love the taste
  • Made in the USA!
Well one of the things we have found out by being able to review so many treats is that we three pugs have a very hard time eating treats or anything (like dog food) that is crunchy and hard.  Mom has to break them for us, and even then we struggle with it.  So these little biscuits were to hard for us to eat BUTT our cousin Bear loved them!!!

We give these four stars cos its not their fault we have weird teeth.

We hope our momma gets in gear and is able to catch up on everything going on.

Thank you Mr. Andrew.

Sometimes the three of us fight.  Like fight in the way of grabbing each others wrinkles and shaking the crap out of you type of fight.  Mom gets super mad at us, and we have to take a break from each other.  Usually it is just a "5 minute" break

 but sometimes it is a long time break like "10 minutes". 

Mom gets all worried that we will never mend the problem whatever it may be and that we will always be mad at each other

then she looks in on us, and here we are.

And until the next time there is peace and harmony in our home.

P. S. Liberty this is for you.  Its a bow tie.

We who choose to surround ourselves
with lives even more temporary than our
own, live within a fragile circle;
easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps,
we would still live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only
certain immortality, never fully
understanding the necessary plan....
--- Irving Townsend ---
We will miss you our friend.

We received this award from our friend Charlie 
a few weeks ago and are still playing that game of catch up on our blog.   You can find Charlie right here at http://charliedownunderinoz.blogspot.com/....isn't he cute.

For this Award you are supposed to post your favorite song and pass it onto 10 other bloggers.  We are passing it onto all of our friends cos we are lazy today.  Here is our mom's favorite song and she put some pictures and a story with it awhile back when we shared it with you.  She loves the message of the song. 

"Brave" holds different meanings for each of us.  WE may all be fighting a battle that no one else ever see's and that often takes faith and bravery.  Sometimes Mom says just getting out of bed to go to work is an act of bravery.  I just yell in her ear each morning, "GET UP WOMAN!"  Enjoy the day and fanks Charlie.

My butt is flat!  Flat like a pancake....

Why is it flat you ask?????  Well because I am spending 92% of my time sitting on my flat butt driving Murphy and Stanley's Campaign RV all over blogville.

Today I am taking a break at our next stop and doing a little sightseeing.....be watching for me cos it might be in your town.  Listen for the HONK HONK of my horn!!

OUR friends Murphy and Stanly http://murphyandstanley.blogspot.com have asked if we would like to participate in the amazing Writers Blog Tour.  We said yes, BEFORE we knew our MOM would be gone so LONG with her work last week.  We are running behind on everything IMPORTANT in our lives now, and MOMMA is playing the game called 'catch up". 

We really enjoy Murphy and Stanley's blog cos their momma is a good comedian and always makes us laugh, plus she also has a POTP page for any of our friends out their in blogville needing our prayers and help. (And she sends our mom good pictures of us) WE wish we could go on those long walks that hers takes each day, but its so hot in our part of the woods, we run outside to pee and run back into the cool air.  If we add all ours time running around Alcatraz  outside it still would not add up to the amount she runs each day.

OURS momma likes to write when she has time, and sometimes hers writing reflects what is going on in ours lives....

so the rules for this tour is you haf to nominate three other bloggers and you haf to answer three questions.

Since there are three of us, we are each going to take a question from the Tour. 

(Maggie)  Question NO. 1  What are you working on?  Well I often help my mom with the weekly calendar of blogs she needs to do.  Usually she is behind on her reviewing of products and right now we are working on our monthly Mr. Chewy review.  Yes, we are AWARE it is ALMOST the end of the month but we know Mr. Andrew will understand.  We are also working on a review of a Elk Antler that was sent to my sister, Stella Rose last week.  With, Gussie being so involved in Murphy and Stanley's campaign he is working on writing his adventures down.  There is a lot  of midnight oil and long distance phone calls being made, before he will have his stories completed.  All that late night racket is giving me a headache.  I will be glad when things get back to normal, well as normal as it was before, around here.

(Stella Rose) Question NO. 2 How does my writing process start?  Well, Momma and I have been blogging together since 2012 and as bloggers we have grown.  At first Momma and I did a lot of safe writing...but then one day we took a BIG leap of faith and wrote about a topic that was dear to our hearts.  We were worried our blogville friends wouldn't like us anymore or think we were crazy but something amazing happened and everyone had something positive to say about it.  So we took another step and wrote some more heartfelt words, and then it just became second nature to us, to always write about what is in our hearts.  Sometimes it hurts to write the words down, but after they are out there in space it becomes more healing than hurting.  Mom lets each of us blog, so because the three of us are so different my blog has went in three different directions.  I like sharing it with my siblings, but I will always remember when it was just Mom and I starting up that ladder all by ourselves.

(Angus McConnell) Question NO. 3 Why do I write what I do?  Well I like to write alls about my life wif my girls and my parents cos I loves them, and even mean ole cat Dietzy.  Wesa are lucky cos we's haf lots of family and friens that loves us so I writes about it.  I also likes to writes about all my adventures in life.  Most of them happens cos of my friens in blogville and how my little mind and heart works.  I finks my Mom always tries to put something important in many of my stories, and sometimes the stories might be silly but if you look with your heart and not your eyes you will find the golden nugget...or else just go to McDonalds if you can't find it and you will find one there.  Momma toles me she has always liked to write, and having the three of us blog is a good outlet for hers.    The hardest fings we write about is when one of our friends goes to live at the bridge.  We finks and finks and finks about it and then the words just come out on the page.  Momma said to us, that we are her gifts, and each day wif us is like unwrapping the package a little more, ..............We hopes you enjoy us as much as wesa do all of ewes. 

Now we are gonna nominate our three friends.
1. http://adayinthelifeofpugs.blogspot.com/   Ms. Ellen is the very reason that we are blogging. She kept trying to talk ours mom into it and finally one day mom just did it.  Hers has five pugs and lives in Illinois. Momma calls her the pug whisper cos she can get all five of her pugs to sit for a picture and momma can hardly get one of us to do it.  Plus hers is Liberty's my loves momma and Maggie's love Paytons momma.

2. http://calamityacres.blogspot.com/   This blog is about a lady named Mary Ann and hers used to live out on a farm with hers pug named Abby.  Remember Abby went to live at the bridge and now there is just Lily.  Her life has changed a lot cos they have moved from the farm into town, but Mary Ann still blogs, and shows us wonderful pictures of what is going in hers life.

3.  http://tweedles-georgie.blogspot.com/   This blog is about a pug named Tweedles who writes beautiful poetry that we all loves to read.  Tweedles is very special to my momma cos after my brudder Sammy J. Simpson had to go to the Bridge, Tweedles made a very special trip to the moon to visit with Sammy and that brought my Mom's heart some peace.  We have found out that by being a part of blogville very magical things happen here, and that was one of them.  Angus also offered to Santa to give up all his Christmas presents if he would help make Tweedles better last winter when she was very sick.  We believe in magic, and we believe Tweedles is a part of that magic.

We hoped you enjoyed us sharing this wif you.

WE have so much catching up to do....we are hidden under piles of work on our mom's desk.......even though we did not comment much last week, we did read your blogs.  We missed each and everyone of you. 

So our first post of the week is going to be a thank you post to Bunk the Pug http://bunkblog.net/blog/ for sending me a Paw Pack!!!   A Paw Pack is a box that you can have delivered to your door every month, with all kinds of treats and surprises in it.  The box came on Friday and I was so excited cos I just knew it was mine ALL MINE....cos I had ONLY my name on it.
Mom let me open it up later after the grandkids had went home and the house quieted down. There were all kinds of stuff inside.  Two toys, a funny pin, that said, "I let my dog kiss me on the lips" and lots of cool treats.

Those Lick out Loud treats come from Canada.  We have bloggy friends in Canada!!!  They smell like soy sauce and we loved them cos they are soft.

See the hairy toy with the ball on the end, Maggie and Gussie loved that, and the little yellow dumbbell also.  We cannot wait to open the Salmon treats and try them!!

Thank you Bunk for picking me in your contest.  We have been very blessed by all our friends here in Blogville.

Soooooo how many of you guys get to kiss your momma on the lips??????????
