Enjoying Our Quiet Time

Westie in a crate
   When we take the Bayou Boys with us in the car, they travel in their LifeStages™ crate. They love riding in it and they’re much safer than being loose in the car. We also used our crate when Pierre was so sick to keep him confined.
   In the past, we’ve always put a regular-sized dog bed in the crate for the boys’ comfort. The problem is they were too bulky and took up a lot of their room. I’ve looked at crate mats, but they all seem too thin for my spoiled babies. This bed is the perfect thickness in the crate.

Quiet Time Deluxe Pet Bed
   That is why I jumped at the opportunity to try the Quiet Time™ Deluxe Ombrè Swirl Pet Bed from our friends at Chewy. It is made by MidWest® Homes For Pets which is the same company that made our crate! We ordered the 35x23” size and it fits our 36” crate floor like a glove. The beds are available from 18” all the way to 48” so there is a size for every dog or cat. 
Bottom of Quiet Time Deluxe Pet Bed
   This ultra-soft tufted, plush polyfiber cushion feels AMAZING! The polyester cover blends from light grey to charcoal and looks like it is covered with roses. The bottom has a non-skid grip so there'll be no slipping or sliding around. I could definitely take a snooze on it. The best thing is that the entire bed is machine washable. That is so important when you have two dogs that like to get dirty on their adventures.
Plush Quiet Time Deluxe Pet Bed
   I absolutely love our new Quiet Time pet bed. The boys agree that it makes car rides cozier. It is perfect for crates, carriers, and vehicles...or in our case, a crate in a vehicle!
   The truth is we count on Chewy.com for great products, fast-friendly service, and super quick deliveries. If you are still driving to specialty stores or the vet for your pet’s supplies, medications, or food it is time to check out Chewy. They have everything you can imagine including a pharmacy and much, much more.
Starbucks gift box
   I want to give a big thank you for this lovely gift that our Chewy friends surprised us with the other day. They sure know how to make this blogger happy! We love Starbucks. 
Chewy Rocks!

Hats Off to Hat Day!

Today is National Hat Day and the Bayou Boys
LOVE a good hat.
Pierre chose a fireman’s hat because the girls like a man in uniform and he thinks he's hot! Hey, where’s the fire?
Bentley loves wearing his cowboy hat now that he is an official Texan. He thinks he's Bentley, Texas Ranger. 
Get along little doggie!
What type of hat would your pet wear to celebrate Hat Day?

BFTB NETWoof News January 14, 2019

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to another week of BFTB NETWoof News and weather. We have fetched some great stories that you are going to want to share with your friends. Pierre, what is our top story?”

*This "bad guy" is actually my brother! Read about this headshot and more at the end of the news.
Pierre Westie: “We have long known that dogs are excellent judges of character. A recent study by Akiko Takaoka of Kyoto University in Japan takes a look at how trusting a dog is after it has been lied to by a human.
   The study had participants first point their dog to a container with food. The trusting dog hurries over to the container and is rewarded. When the person points to an empty container, the dog runs over to it and is disappointed. When their human points to a third container, the dog no longer trusts the human and refuses to be tricked again. Dogs used their previous experience to realize the person cannot be trusted.
   The bottom line is never trick your dog or they will learn not to believe you. That also includes the old ‘fake” throw trick. We don’t think it is funny.”

Houston's Zoo Lights

   As I promised you, this year we will be sharing more of our travels around Texas. Last night we took advantage of one of the last chances to visit Houston’s Zoo Lights. It is the seventh year the zoo has transformed itself into a winter wonderland. We decided to wait until the holiday crowds dwindled before strolling through the gorgeous lighting displays.
   There are fifteen miles of LED lighting illuminating the ancient trees and shining our way along the path. We enjoyed a story from an interactive talking zebra, wound our way through the Enchanted Forest and watched the Holiday Village Train chug around a quaint village.

Here are some of my favorite Houston Zoo Lights

Bandanas On the Bayou

   I have been a PrideBites *PAWtner affiliate since September 2014. The reason is simple, they are a fantastic company that hasn’t gotten too big for their breeches! You might remember when PrideBites appeared on Shark Tank and got a sweet deal with Robert and Lori. Since then they have expanded their line with some incredibly cool products.
Red chili peppers and green fronds bandanas
   I love bandanas! Everyone wants their dogs to look cute when they take them out and I am no different. Tying one around Bentley and Pierre’s necks increase their already over the top cuteness to a whole new level!

The Bayou Boys' Backyard

Basset and Westie in yard
 Bentley Basset Hound: “Pierre, you know that we haven’t shared too many action pics of us in our backyard lately. I don’t want people to think we’ve slacked up on our patrols. It’s been rainy, you were sick, and the holidays hit but most days we make sure our backyard is safe from intruders.”
