Be Prepared with Treatibles Ready Packs

   I know it seems like our dogs just got over the terror of New Year’s Eve and here we are already dreading the 4th of July! As if that’s not enough to have your pet pacing and panting, hurricane season is starting so that means you could have some bad storms or even an evacuation situation. Oh my, I forgot to mention the summer visits from relatives. How are those of us with sensitive dogs and cats going to survive?

Fetch Your Dog a Great Senior Wellness Checkup

    Senior wellness check-ups are important for humans and pets. Here at Barking from the Bayou, we all go every six months for bloodwork and to address any concerns. Last week was Bentley’s turn and I wanted to brag share his results.
   I’ll be honest with you; I was a little worried about him. He has had a bump on his left shoulder for a couple of years. We’ve had vets look at it and they all assured us it was just a fatty “tumor” and nothing to worry about. Still, it looked as if it had gotten bigger and his harness rubbed against it. Thankfully, our vet had made note of the size and said it was about the same. I mentioned that a previous vet had aspirated a similar one on his hip a couple of years back, and it was filled with a brown liquid. She asked if I wanted her to do the same and I said “yes.” Bentley didn’t flinch when the needle went in and the doctor removed 3 large vials of a clear liquid. Just like that the bump was gone! She did say it could return but that it is completely benign. I’ve been massaging the area and applying a cream in hopes that it will stay away.

A Work of Art

   Like any good pet parent, I have 3,000+ photos of Bentley and Pierre on my phone and won’t hesitate to show them to anyone that stands still long enough. Of course, the photos that Skipper takes of them just scream to be displayed and what better way to showcase my favorites than on canvas. I love, love, love the look of canvas photos and I've been needing one of Pierre. That’s why I was so excited when I discovered The process looked super easy, so I enlisted the help of the Bayou Boys for our review.

They are the perfect size for a treat or I can break them in half for training sessions.

Bentley: “I like to give all my treats the sniff test. MMM…I can smell fresh blueberries! You do know that blueberries and sweet potatoes are both super foods, right? That makes these treats super too! 
   Charlee Bear is a family owned company and has been making quality treats for over 25 years. A little rescue dog named Charlee was the inspiration for their name. Yes, you guessed it. The little guy was a heart stealer and looked like a teddy bear! It is their mission to make simple, nourishing and natural treats that dogs love.”

“Okay, here’s the deal. The smell test is important but it’s the taste test that makes or breaks a treat for me. Wow! Excuse the stream of drool but y’all simply have to try a Charlee Bear’s Meaty Bites to appreciate how delectable each bite tastes. Crunchy yet light with just the perfect amount of blueberry in each one. Did I mention they are only 5 tiny calories a piece?”

“Let me shoot you straight on Meaty Bites from Charlee Bear. I love them. Both flavors are scrumptious. You can trust my taste buds because I have eleven and a half years of treat expertise under my collar. Treats are life. Mom carries them on our walks to divert my attention from other dogs. Something about me being too macho for my own good. Anyway, she just whips one out of her bag and everything around me disappears except for that yummy Charlee Bear treat. We will be ordering more on *Amazon so I can have them delivered to my front door practically overnight! It’s like it says on the bag, they are Beary Tasty Treats™.”

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

   Confession time…I LOVE sports, not playing but watching them. You need to understand when I say sports, I am talking about the southern holy trinity of sports: baseball, football and basketball. The problem that I’ve always had is where we lived until last year had zero professional ball teams. That left us cheering for LSU, New Orleans Saints, and the high school where I used to work. I'll always love LSU and the Saints but they were several hours away from our house.
   Fast forward to our new home where we can root for the Houston Astros, Houston Texans, and the Houston Rockets!! I am in sports fan heaven. 
   Last Friday we went to watch the Astros play the Cleveland Indians at Minute Maid Park in downtown Houston. I was so excited to attend my first Astros game! They even gave me a certificate to commemorate the day. Come with me as I take you out to the ballgame.
