Take a Hike with Grab n' Go

Sit Stay Go Grab n' Go Pet Dinette & Leash
Barking from the Bayou, LLC received a Grab n' Go Dinette and Leash in exchange for an honest review. Sit Go Stay is not responsible for the contents of this article.
   One of the best parts of being a pet lifestyle blogger is getting to test the latest dog products. Today, I want to introduce you to the Grab n’ Go Pet Dinette and Leash by Sit Stay Go™. It was designed by Michelle, a pet mom in New York City. She knows what a hassle it can be to carry water, treats, keys and hang onto a leash with an excited pup on the other end. Her solution is this handy all-in-one leash and bowls combo. I say “Bravo!”

Puppy Kisses and Bow Ties

Bentley: “It is hard to believe but I will be 10 years old this Sunday, December 3rd. Pierre told me Mom and Dad are planning a party with cake and presents. I do know that I am having a HUGE giveaway to celebrate the Big 1-0. Mark your calendars now. Anyway, about my party…I must look sharp as the guest of honor. You never know when the puparazzi will be hiding in the bushes to snap a photo! #PartyHound

We are so excited to be a part of this year’s
4 Gifts for Pets Blog Hop & Giveaway. 
The idea is to share four things that would be pawsome Christmas presents for our pets. Selecting one gift they want, one to wear, one thing they really need and of course, something to eat will keep me from spending too much on one area. It also gives Santa Paws a variety of gifts to bring down the chimney!

   Have you heard of EQyss Pet Products? They began manufacturing the highest quality grooming products for companion pets such as horses and dogs. All their ingredients are sourced in the USA and made in their own factory in San Diego, California.

   We were recently sent a variety of their grooming products for Bentley and Pierre. I am always excited to try new shampoos, conditioners, and fur care sprays. The first thing I do is give everything the smell test. Some products are too strong for Bentley’s sensitive nose. He likes to smell good but not overpowering. I’m happy to report that EQyss understands a dog’s and a human’s olfactory organs. Everything smelled fabulous!

BFTB NETWoof News November 20, 2017

Bentley Basset: “Hello and welcome to Thanksgiving week’s BFTB NETWoof News. We have fetched some great stories so let’s get right to our top story with my co-anchor Pierre.”
BFTB NETWoof News Top Story woman with dog on backscreen
Pierre Westie: “In a huge scientific study it was concluded that having a dog is good for your health. The study showed people who live with a dog are less likely to die from cardiovascular disease. That is because we help people be more social and get exercise. We can’t walk ourselves, you know. This is another one of those in-depth ‘Duh’ research projects that pet parents have realized all along.”

Everything You Need for a Pawsome Puppy Party from Amazon

"We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.”
   Bentley is preparing for turning ten-years-old on December 3, 2017. I cannot believe my boy is almost two paws full. He is very excited and has let it be known that he is expecting a huge party. What is a pet parent to do? 
   There is one place to find everything we need to make our party a howling success. AMAZING AMAZON
   Seriously, what did we do before Amazon made shopping so easy? As a member of Prime, I get free shipping on most products and believe me, it saves us a bundle. If you haven’t joined Amazon Prime yet, I highly recommend it.

Bentley Basset Hound: “You might remember earlier that Mom stole claimed our new Texts from Dogs desk calendar from Chewy. It seemed as if the Bayou Boys were going to lose out this month. We were majorly bummed because we depend on our friends at Chewy.com for our favorite treats.”

We Missed It

Bentley: “Oh my dog!! Pierre, wake up…WAKE UP!!”
Pierre: “I’m awake and ready to bark. What is the problem? A burglar? A squirrel? Cheese? Tell me what’s got your hackles up?”
Bentley: “We missed one of the most important days of the year! I cannot believe it. I feel soooo bad.”

Your Dog has Cancer. Now What ?

   There are few diagnoses from the vet that strike fear in the hearts of pet parents more than the words, “Your dog has cancer.” What are you supposed to do now?
   November is Pet Cancer Awareness month and a great time to take another look at Dr. Harvey’s Paradigm. It is the first choice of holistic vets when a dog is diagnosed with cancer. That is because this revolutionary base-mix dog food is formulated on the principles of an anti-cancer diet. It can be your first line of defense to improve your dog’s quality of life, help promote healing and maintain a strong immune system.

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for November 13, 2017. We are tail-wagging happy to have you here and have fetched some great stories to start your week. Pierre, what is our top story?”

Pierre Westie: “It is a hilarious story of Sullivan, a dog that lives with his humans in Utah. His mom came home to see him on her lunchbreak and he was excited to spend time in the middle of the day with her. He was running around and playing but when it was time for her to return to work, Sullivan seemed to come down with a horrible cough. She couldn’t take off to stay with him, so she called her husband who hurried home to keep a watchful eye on their pup.

Explaining Daylight Savings Time to Dogs

Dear Bentley and Pierre,
    I just want you to know that daylight savings time was not my idea. It is obvious that this entire “Fall Back” business is messing with y’all. It’s not that I mind you waking me up at 5:00a.m. to go outside and take care of your business. I’m thankful that you claw on my side of the bed to rouse me out of a perfectly happy dream. It is always fun to drag myself to the back door to put your leashes on and go stand around while you both find the perfect place to take poop. The best part is when we go back to bed and I hear you snoring before I can resume my dream.

Wordless in Black and White

There is something special about black and white photographs. They seem to bring out the true personality of your subjects and I love that.

I'm a Calendar Girl

   There’s a secret that needs to be shared. I’m a calendar girl and it is time to admit it. Oh, don’t get me wrong…I’m not actually on a calendar but if you thought that for even a moment, thanks! What I am trying to say is that I LOVE calendars. Each year I have two wall calendars, a blogging calendar notebook and a cute day-by-day desk calendar.

BFTB NETWoof News November 6, 2017

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to this week’s BFTB NETWoof News. We have some great news for you today so let me have my co-anchor, Pierre, fetch the top story.”
BFTB NETWoof News report on humans' love for dogs
Pierre Westie: “I enjoy this report because it reveals that some humans really do love their dogs more than other humans. In an experiment involving 240 people, participants were given a fake newspaper report describing an attack on a human or a dog with a baseball bat. The article described the victim being left with several lacerations, a broken leg and unconscious. They were told the victims were a one-year old baby, a 30- year-old adult, a puppy, and a six-year-old dog.

Do You Want Fries with That Order?

Save 20% on PrideBites Pup Fries with code MKCLINTON
Bentley Basset Hound: “We all know dogs love fries, am I right? That is why we are so stoked about PrideBites newest toy! It’s a large order of Pup Fries and you are going to want to add these to your Christmas list.”
Pierre Westie: “I love all of PrideBites' toys and the Pup Fries look delicious. Don’t worry about me killing them either. These toys have 55 pounds of pull pressure so even my jaws of Terrier steel won’t spoil them. It’s a shame we can’t order an entire meal to go with the Pup Fries. That’d be pawsome.”

Those Cotton Fields Back Home

Louisiana cotton fields
   Cotton fields were such a part of Louisiana’s landscape in the 60’s and 70’s that I admit to taking them for granted. Everyone had their photos made in the fields growing up. They went on for miles and miles before schools, universities, and shopping centers took their place.
