St. Patrick's Day Treasure Hunt

A few days ago, I wrote about these awesome peanut butter treats that I won from Entirely Pets.  Lilo and I (and our older sister Mimi the shih tzu) have been enjoying these treats so much that we wanted to use them for something special.  So, we used them as a prize in a special St. Patrick’s Day Treasure Hunt – Dog style (I even wore my St. Patrick’s Day bow-tie for the event)!Here’s how we did it.  First, my human (because she has thumbs) randomly placed several plastic cups upside down on the floor.  Next, when we weren’t looking, my human hid some of the special peanut butter treats under a few of the cups.  Then it was game time!

I searched high and I searched low.  With a little help from my human brothers who were eager to join in the fun, I found ALL of the treats!

I had such a fun time searching for the pot of gold peanut butter treats.  I hope that we play this game again really soon!

Let me know if you try this game!  Send me some pictures and I’ll feature you in a follow up post!  You can send them to me at:  DaisyTheFrenchBulldog (at) outlook (dot) com OR find me on Twitter or Facebook or Instagram.

Product Review: Top Paw Glitter Bowl

In my last post, I told you about how lucky Lilo was to have won some peanut butter treats.  Well, her winning streak continued when she was named a daily #Cutepic winner on Twitter by PeoplePets.  Her prize was sponsored by PeoplePets and PetSmart and it was amazing; she received a beautiful pink glitter bowl and two adorable bone-shaped teething toys by Martha Stewart Pets.  Today, I am going to review the Top Paw Glitter Dog Bowl, which you can purchase here.

 First, let’s talk about the most amazing part of this bowl – the color!  It is a beautiful, rich pink accentuated with the perfect amount of glitter; and it is a must have for any princess pup.  In addition to the great color, the size and depth are great for a small to medium sized dog.   Overall, I give this bowl two paws up.  It is functional and beautiful.   So beautiful, in fact, it inspired Lilo to show her princess side.

Please note that these views are totally my own and that I am not affiliated with any of the noted companies or products.  If you have any questions, or if you want your product reviewed, please e-mail me at:  DaisyTheFrenchBulldog (at) outlook (dot) com.  Or, you can always find me on Twitter: @DaisyFrenchie or on Facebook by clicking here.

Product Review: Peanut Butter Treats

Hi friends, Daisy the French Bulldog here!  Recently, my pug sister Lilo entered a peanut butter themed photo contest sponsored by Entirely Pets-Online Pet Supplies.  Here is one of her photos – boy, does she LOVE peanut butter!

Lilo thought the prize was getting to sleep next to a jar of peanut butter, so imagine her surprise when she won the contest and received some peanut butter flavored treats as her prize! 
WeShe couldn’t stop licking
ourher chops when our postal worker delivered the box filled with Simply Wild Peanut Butter treats and Green Dog Peanut Butter Flavored Nuggets.  This gave us a whole new reason to chase the mailman!

First, we dug into the Simply Wild Peanut Butter Treats (I solely participated in the treat-eating for research and blogging purposes.  Dog scout’s honor).  I have one word to describe them:  AMAZING!  The treats are made using wholesome, delicious ingredients that made my human happy (and when the human is happy about the ingredients, I get more treats).  Also, the treats are packaged in a quaint, eco-friendly bag that my human adores!  The texture and shape are very similar to a human treat, which makes them even more appetizing to me and my pug sister.  The treats themselves are slightly dry and crunchy and not too oily or sticky, which makes them perfect for dogs like me that tend to have “jowl issues” (that’s a topic for a whole different post, friends).  These treats definitely get two paws up, and I will be “borrowing” my human’s credit card to order more in the very near future….

As if the folks at Entirely Pets could read our minds, they sent Lilo a second bag of peanut butter treats:  Green Dog Peanut Butter Flavored Nuggets.  These little rounds of goodness were equally as delicious!  The treats are packaged with optimal freshness in mind!  They come in a small plastic bag placed inside of a resealable (and attractive) plastic pouch.  Similar to the first set of treats, the Green Dog Nuggets are made with wholesome, healthy ingredients – and they smell AWESOME (and by awesome I mean my human couldn’t stop sticking her nose in the bag to catch a whiff – the nerve of some humans)!  These treats have a little more moisture to them, but they aren’t greasy or sticky.  Also, the treats are big enough to share (<– my human made me write that, I do NOT share treats.  Ever.).  I also give these treats two paws up.
I may or may not have used my human’s checking account to purchase more on the internet while she slept.  Here, look at a cute picture of Lilo to forget that last sentence:

A HUGE thank you to Entirely Pets for the opportunity to participate in such a fun event, and for providing such a delicious reward!

Love, Hugs, and Pugs,

~ Daisy the French Bulldog
