I’m a big fan of lick-able treats. My mom always carries one of these TreatToobs filled with peanut butter with her as a high-value training treat for me. So when I spotted these lickable treats from Leanlix I was intrigued. These low-calorie treats are made from human grade ingredients in the USA. With flavors like free range chicken, cheese, hot dog, and pb&j – I’m totally ready for a lick!
You can fetch your own Leanix treats in 2 sizes starting at $12.95.

So I heard that during the Oscars (airing on March 2nd) they will be celebrating movie characters who save the day. You know, like Super Heroes!
But my only question is, where is my invite?
You see, I’m a Super Hero too!
Not only that, but I even starred in my very own Super Hero Movie with my pal Super Minnow the Pony!
So while I’m sure the Oscars will be an exciting event, it will never be as spectacular as it could have been if a certain pony and his canine friend were invited to partake!
The paparazzi would of swarmed me anyway, so perhaps it’s better I get to just watch from the comfort of my own couch.
You might even remember last year I got all fancied up for the occasion, but alas, I guess it’s not my time to grace the red carpet. However, I’m sure you could put in your requests on the Academy’s Facebook Page for a certain little dachshund celebrity to be in attendance for next year! Paws crossed!

Last week my monthly Barkbox subscription arrived. It’s always exciting to peek inside that little cardboard box each month to see what special goodies have arrived.
Each month Barkbox sends some dog-gone great products featured around a certain theme, this month the theme was date night. Inside my box was a Sushi Pups toy, a Loopies cigar toy, Complete Natural Nutrition Cheese popcorn (which was safe for human consumption too), an Etta Says chew, and Max & Ruffy’s blueberry treats.
After I checked out what was in the box I realized Barkbox had it all wrong…..it wasn’t a date night box…..it was a dude’s night box!
So I invited all my dudes over to partake in my Barkbox fun. Ok well technically Cricket the cat isn’t a dude, but she’s so cool she’s practically one of the guys.
Minnow the pony and I wasted no time in digging into our Barkbox goodies.
Minnow went after the Loopies cigar, while I zeroed in on the Etta Says chew!
Just a couple of dudes chewing on things!
While Minnow enjoyed playing with my cigar toy, I’m sure he was wondering when they are going to come out with a Ponybox, because dog cookies weren’t exactly the treat he was hoping for. That’s ok, there’s more for me!
My Dudes Night with Barkbox was a total success! I even had to check to make sure Cricket wasn’t taking home seconds!
Disclosure: I received a Barkbox in exchange for a review, but all opinions are entirely my own!
Once upon a time in a foggy back yard there was a tiny little dog with great big digging paws.
He found a scent and dug and dug until his hearts content.
With all that snow he could find holes to dig in for days and days!
Oh and what’s that….there’s something there under the snow….
oh yup, that little digging pup found a treasure! Only something tiny little dogs with great big digging paws could uncover. Bunny poop!
And if you want to come over to my foggy back yard I’ll gladly share my digging treasure with all of you!
I’m very excited to be bringing you today’s product review, Ruffwear’s Summit Trex Dog Boots! With the nasty winter we have been dealt here in Pennsylvania I found myself wishing I had something for my paws to keep them more protected and warmer too.
Now if you own a dachshund and have ever tried boots on them, then you probably already know that getting a pair of boots to stay on our front digger paws can be a bit difficult. Because our short little legs are constructed so differently from the average dog it can be pretty hard to keep boots from slipping.
Initially when I tried out my summit trex boots I had trouble with the front ones slipping off (the back ones stayed on nice and snug since our back paws are more like an average dog’s), but mom had a great idea on how to keep them on.
You might remember that before I got my Ruffwear boots I had been wearing a pair of Pawz Boots. While technically I wouldn’t really consider these boots – as they are made out of what can best be described as a latex balloon type material and don’t really keep your paws any warmer – they proved to be the perfect boot liner!
With my Pawz boots underneath my summit trex boots on the front I was running through the snow in no time!
Ruffwear also sells a pair of boot liners that would also work well for keeping these boots on the hard-to-fit dachshunds, but at the moment the smallest size they carry was just a tad too large for me. But not to worry, because they are coming out with smaller sizes later this year….I can’t wait!
I tested out my Ruffwear boots all over the farm and in the snow and ice! These boots are designed to provide everyday traction and paw protection from extreme temperatures, abrasive surfaces, and salt or other snowmelt chemicals.
The Summit Trex boots come in lots of sizes, and you can even order them as singles to make sure they fit your dog perfectly. I’m wearing 1.75 inch boots on my front paws and 1.5 inch boots on my back paws – to insure a snug fit it’s best to make sure you measure your dog’s paws properly, which is simple with Ruffwear’s sizing video.
Now I wasn’t the only one that got to try out a pair of Ruffwear boots, my pal Trooper got to test out a pair of Grip Trex boots for his paws.
These Grip Trex dog boots are great for dogs who hike, bike, run, or explore the great outdoors with their humans. As you can see they are set a little lower on the ankle, and would be a great pair of boots for the bigger dogs since they come in larger sizes.
Trooper and I were glad to have some boots to keep our paws protected this winter, but it took us a little bit to get used to wearing something on our feet, just check out this hilarious video of our first time wearing them…
And incase you’re wondering, it didn’t take us long to get the hang of running around outside in them (especially after mom tossed us a whole bunch of cookies) and before long we didn’t even notice we were wearing them!
And now for the best part…

My cat pal Spider has been living on the farm for several years now and over the years I have gotten to watch her grow into the cat that she is today – all thanks to me. It’s true, when she was just a wee little kitten I taught her all of the important things to know….
Like how to chew on sticks….
and climb trees….
Without me she would be lost!
As you may already know I have been taking agility training classes for a long time now. I have yet to ever compete, and someday I might, but mostly I just enjoy the exercise and mental stimulation.
However, despite my love of running the courses, sometimes I have off days too. For example last week I was a little off my game. Having just been to the vet for a nail trim (sort of stressful for me) and having to wait extra long in my crate for my turn on the course (stressful as well when you aren’t a huge fan of the crate), I had pretty much worn myself out from worrying by the time it was my turn to run the course.
I tried my best, but I was just a bit distracted (hence why I missed a few obstacles and did some very poorly executed weave poles) and much much slower on the course than normal. But hey, we’re all allowed to have off days – perhaps next week at class I’ll have a little more pep in my step!
Last Thursday when I awoke there was a whole lot of snow outside my door. As in 15+ inches of fluffy white stuff!
Of course the first thing I did was pile on my jackets and head outdoors to catch some snowflakes!
Running like a crazy dog through the snow was totally worth being chilly for just a few minutes. So fun in fact, that I headed out to the farm for some more winter adventures with my ponies!
Even the ponies had fun in the snow!
Despite the inches upon inches of snow we received (and keep continuing to receive), I just can’t get on board with “snow bashing”. It might be cold and wet, difficult for mom and dad to shovel, and somewhat of a hazard – but when else do you get to make memories like these? Snowday fun is just the kind of adventures I needed this winter!
How about you, do you enjoy snow day adventures as much as me?
My friends over at Chewy.com recently sent me over a package of Wysong Dream Rabbit Freeze-Dried Dog and Cat Treats.
These treats are starch-free raw meat treats, uniquely processed without damaging heat using the Wysong True Non-Thermal manufacturing technology. Each treat is loaded with extra vitamins, minerals, prebiotics, probiotics, enzymes, powerful natural nutraceuticals and more!
They were much larger than I expected (bonus!) but easily broke into smaller pieces too.
Although I tried very hard just to snatch that thing whole out of mom’s hands (don’t worry she didn’t let me eat it without breaking it into smaller pieces).
You can fetch your own Wysong Dream Rabbit Freeze-Dried Dog and Cat Treats for about $12 from Chewy.com
And now for your chance to win some goodies for your own dog, enter below:
