Everything You Need for a Pawsome Puppy Party from Amazon

   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. 
Amazon Has It All

You need to send out invitations with an R.S.V.P. so you can get a reliable tail count. Check with the post office for their dog stamps for extra snail mail cuteness.

It’s just not a party without decorations and this fun kit has a blue dog birthday hat, a dozen colorful paw print balloons, a WOOF balloon banner, a pump and a bundle of ribbon! 
How cute is this fire hydrant centerpiece? It would be a furbulous place to display pupcakes or goodie bags.
Selecting the perfect cake is always difficult. This year, I am going with this fun kit. It includes a wheat-free all-natural cake mix, a tasty frosting (just add water) and a 7”x10” silicone dog bone shaped cake pan. You can let your guests wash down the cake with a fresh bowl of water. 
I know the kit comes with candles but imagine how cute these dogs candles would be to mix in with them.
Nothing says “fun” like a bunch of dogs in party hats, am I right? The birthday dog has their hat included in the decorations kit, so you just need hats for your guests. I think these with the pom poms on top would howl-erious!
It’s always nice to send your guests home with a thank-you doggie bag. You can fill it with a Whimzees, a ball and a bandana. A roll of poop bags is always appreciated.
There you have it. One stop shopping for the 
Puppy Paw-ty of the Year!

It's the Thanksgiving Week Pet Parade Blog Hop! Join the fun with Rascal and RoccoBionic Basil’s Blog, and me. We are so thankful for our "hoppers"

Paging Dr. Tim's Freeze Dried Treats

Westie and Basset answering the door to Chewy's mascot.
Chewy.com disclaimer
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.
Bentley is mellow and loving.

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.
