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

When we get the opportunity to review Whimzees™, it is a no-brainer. They make a great chew that helps remove plaque and tartar. You can count on me sitting at attention whenever Natural Dog Treats are being offered.”

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 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. 
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.

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.

Weekend Fun

We are joining our friends McGuffy's Reader and 15 and Meowing for Friendly Fill-Ins. Be sure to hop around and see everyone’s answers.
• The best part of where I live are the mild winters. It rarely snows and when it does, the entire city shuts down!

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.

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.
