Barking About the WoofPack Dog Accessory Bag

   One of the best things about being a dog lifestyle blogger is the chance to discover and share awesome new products with y'all. My new favorite must-have is the WoofPack™ Dog Walking Accessory Bag. It checks every box for a pet parent on the go!

Smoke and Mirrors

Pierre Westie: “Hey, Bentley! Wake up!! I have a great idea for a new act. You’ll never guess in a million dog years. This is gonna be BIG! How can you sleep at a time like this?!?”
Bentley Basset: “Simmer down dude. Nobody should be this excited when they wake up and nobody should ever wake me up without a good reason like bacon frying in the kitchen. Since I don’t smell bacon, you had better hope this is worth interrupting my slumber.”
Pierre: “You are going to be sorry that you were grumpy once we are famous Vegas stars! I am pretty sure that we can be headliners by summer. Trust me. I'll have you know I am now a pawfessional magician. Please call me by my new stage name, Pierre the Magnificent.”

Bentley Basset Hound: “There is nothing more embarrassing than to try giving your best friend a lick on their face and seeing them recoil because of your breath. Let’s face facts, dogs occasionally eat nasty stuff. That can give us a bad case of stink mouth. What’s a loving hound supposed to do?”
Pierre Westie: “Funny you should mention loving because I have a new amazing dental treat from our friends at Loving Pets®. I’m sure you recognize their name from the other fabulous products that we’ve talked about like the LeBōl™ and Houndations™ treats.
       You are going to love ORA💗BONE™ Dental Treats. They are made in the U.S.A. with real chicken, mint, and parsley. Mom said she could smell the mint as soon as the bag was opened.”

Happiness Is A Self-Serve Dog Wash

   One of the best things about our new city is it's dog-friendly. The neighborhood has beautiful trails where there are always dogs walking with their humans. There are poo bag dispensers along the pathways too. These are things that make a pet parent happy. It’s the little things we appreciate.

   Moving to another state means finding a new groomer and favorite pet store. It is always scary to take Pierre somewhere the first time. He has been the victim of a bad “do” before so we visited and read a lot of reviews before deciding. We chose a groomer at our neighborhood Pet Supplies Plus groomer after meeting with her. Their reviews were awesome, so we took him in last Friday. It only took an hour and he was ready to be picked up. He looked so handsome and she was even able to trim his nails! We were happy. He was happy. #Studmuffin

BFTB NETWoof News March 26, 2018

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for March 26, 2018. We hope that you enjoyed your weekend. Let us start off your Monday with a smile and some good animal news. I’ll let Pierre fetch our top story.”

Pierre Westie: “We have an awww-inspiring report of an elk living in Kittitas County, Washington where it apparently wandered after being abandoned by its mom. Her story came to light after she approached a group of firefighters and began nuzzling and giving kisses. Many people in the community have seen the elk hanging out with the cattle and goats on the nearby hills. Since her encounter with the fire department, Buttons, as they call her has become quite a celebrity. I don’t think she will be lonely anymore.”

Strike Gold with Dr. Harvey's Health + Shine

Two bowls of Dr. Harvey's dog food with golden Health + Shine fish oil supplements added

   Dogs and cats can benefit from additional oils added to their diets. Feeding Dr. Harvey’s homemade dog foods allow me to add the oil of my choice to each meal. I like to mix it up, so we alternate coconut, olive, and salmon oil. They enjoy the taste of all of them but let’s face it…adding oil can be messy. I am always wiping the bottles and jars of runaway drips! It is also important to administer the correct amount. If you add too little, you are defeating the purpose and if you add too much, you’ll be cleaning up loose poop. That is why I LOVE Dr. Harvey’s Health + Shine, you always know you’re adding the perfect amount.

If you have brothers or sisters, you are probably used to having them use your things without asking. Pierre is always trying to steal my beds, play with my toys, and even share my treats. I’m a good sport about most of those things but I draw the line at my PrideBites Stormy Paws Canvas Bed!

Poo Happens or Takin' Care of Business #ChewyInfluencer

   The person who claimed that nothing is certain, but death and taxes obviously never had a dog! Pet parents all know that poo is one of life’s certainties and it is our responsibility to clean it up. It’s not the most glamorous part of having a dog but there are ways to make it much easier. Thanks to Chewy.com, we have discovered the perfect dog waste bag for our new home.

   We used to have a huge backyard and pooper scooping was part of life. It wasn’t until we began to unpack here that I realized my beloved pooper scooper was left behind! Luckily, our new backyard is small so picking up the boys’ business is easy. That means we were using a lot more waste bags than we did before. That’s where Chewy saved the day and our pocketbook!

An Interview with a Really Old Mother

Bentley Basset Hound: “It’s Mom’s birthday and we always enjoy interviewing her on this momentous occasion. Pierre and I have written down some of our burning questions so let’s get right to them.”

Pierre Westie: “Happy birthday Mom! How are you feeling? At your age, aches and pains must be a part of life. Exactly how old are you anyway?”
Me: “You aren’t supposed to ask a lady her age. Let’s just say I’m not quite a senior citizen.”

BFTB NETWoof News March 19, 2018

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for the week of March 19,2018. We have fetched some important reports to share with you. Let’s toss it over to my co-anchor Pierre for our top story.”

Pierre Westie: “It appears that United Airlines has more problems than an algebra book when it comes to transporting dogs over the past few days. The trouble began on a flight from Houston to New York when an attendant insisted a family place their 10-month-old French Bulldog in its carrier inside the overhead bin. When the family arrived at LaGuardia airport, the puppy had died. United has taken full responsibility for the tragedy and the flight attendant claimed not to have known the kennel contained a dog. That is hard for us to believe. We also do not understand why the family went along with the order to stow their pup in the overhead storage. Most pet parents that we have talked to say they would never have abided the order even if it meant being taken off the flight.

It Takes a Village to Move

   It is hard to believe that we have been in our new home a little over a week. Our journey began over a year and a half ago. I haven’t shared too much behind the scenes of selling our home and buying a new one in a different city/state. Now that the dust is settling, I want to thank all the people who helped us get here. Believe me, it takes a village!

Pi Day

Needless to say, the Bayou Boys were NOT happy to discover it was Pi Day instead of Pie Day!
Pi Day is celebrated on 3/14 all over the world.
We believe Pie Day should celebrated be EVERYDAY!

Just What the Doctor Ordered

 Dr. Lyon's Hip + Joint SupportChewy.com disclaimer
   We were recently selected by Chewy.com to review
Dr. Lyon’s Hip + Joint Support. This advanced strength supplement is perfect for any size dog. Bentley and Pierre are completely different in size and activity levels but I’m concerned about both of their hips and joints. Next month both Bayou Boys will be considered seniors although you couldn’t tell by watching them! It is very important that I keep them healthy and mobile to avoid stiff joints.

BFTB NETWoof News March 12, 2018

Bentley Basset Hound: “Welcome to BFTB NETWoof News! We are so happy to be back with y’all after our big move to Texas. It is still a work in progress but there are fewer boxes so that is a positive. We have missed reporting and I’m sure the regular dreary news has left you needing a smile. Let’s check with Pierre for our happy top story.”

Pierre Westie: “Everyone knows that a dog can cheer humans up when they are feeling sad. It seems instinctual for us to know when you need some extra love or a puppy dog smile. That is exactly what happened at an airport with Cora the Corgi.

Howdy Podnuhs

Howdy y’all! The Barking from the Bayou gang are official Texans and could not be happier. We’re unboxing everything we spent the past few months packing but it is beginning to feel like home. Bentley and Pierre are settling in as they recognize familiar furniture and their things. They have been exploring the rooms and getting lots of smell action in the yard. I have much more to tell you but need to get back to discovering what’s in all of these boxes!
We will be back to full-time blogging next Monday but stop by for some fun the rest of this week!
Now, get along little doggies and kitties! LOL!
