My love affair with pinecones continues! Maybe Erin will remember to actually bring a ball on our weekend walks. Or maybe I’ll just have to stay a smart, creative pooch. Hmmm…
Roxie’s Reviews: Little Eatz Pet & People Treats, peanut butter
I’m not sure I like the idea of having treats to share with my hoomans. Erin wasn’t to keen on that idea either. Something about it encouraging the doggy-drooly-stare that I’m not supposed to do. Erin and Alex will say, “No dogs!” to me while they are eating until I go away. :(
Anyway, these treats were taste-tested by me AND Erin! So… these treats are crunchy, crumbly cookies. They aren’t something I’ll eat right away, unless I can go eat on the carpeting. (More cush for my tush, ya know?) The peanut butter cookie taste is weak with very heavy oat/flour overtones. These could be a nice, novelty add-on gift for someone, but not something we’d really go buy for ourselves.
HAH, never thought you’d hear a detailed analysis about a peanut butter cookie, now did you? ;)
PS: Photo credit to my dog-dad, Alex! Way to capture the magic moment. <3
Roxie’s Reviews: Harry Barker hemp bone
A classic or cliche dog toy shape? I’ll let you decide.
Chew factor: 5/10 Chewing isn’t the highlight of this toy…
Fun factor: 5/10 This is fine for sleeping with or for fetch. It’s not very good for tug-of-war though, as it’s difficult for humanses to hold on to.
Squeakiness: 8/10 It has 2 squeakers in it for double the fun!
Durability: 4/10 Erin rotates my toys so I don’t get bored. When Erin rotated this in for a second round, I managed to rip it open, off the seam! I’m quite proud of that part, to be honest.
Coloring: 5/10 The pastel blue is ok for babies and boy dogs, I guess?
Ex for humans: finger painting. Yes, some kindergartners once told me all about it and it sounds AWESOME.
Roxie’s Reviews: Lollycadoodle felted mouse
This toy was a surprise crowd-pleaser. Erin did not expect this to be something a dog would enjoy -it looks like a cat toy, feels like a cat toy, and is a mouse [aka a cat toy]. On the contrary, it is a dog toy [no catnip present] and it is quite fun!
Chew factor: 4/10 This toy is fine for chewing, but not the most interesting one around. The felted material has a surprisingly springy texture.
Fun factor: 5/10 This is a nice tug toy, due to the long tail for the humanses to hold on to. It’s ok for fetch, but not my favorite -no bounce to speak of.
Squeakiness: 0/10 No squeaker, no crinkle… nothing.
Durability: 7/10 A month later and it’s not misshapen. No holes yet either. Give me time though -I aim to misbehave. This sucker doesn’t stand much chance long-term.
Coloring: 5/10 It’s a mouse…
