The puppies are loving their outside playtime!  It makes me wish I had more vacation time, so they could be outside all day.  But I already used most of my vacation time, as they have to be watched 24/7 during the first couple weeks of life.  So I take them outside every chance I get, they play and play, and then they sleep for a few hours, then we do it all over again, Because time is fleeting, and before long they will be all grown up, so I treasure every moment.

Collies got Game!

For our second review, we were sent this fun game created by Outward Hound from the awesome folks at Chewy.com.  The idea is simple, you hide the treats in the compartments, and your dog or puppies, have to figure out how to lift away the block to get the treats hidden inside.



It's a fun concept, and helps keep your dogs or puppies entertained, while helping to build their problem solving abilities.

Team Effort!



Maybe Mom can help?

Maybe if I just keep licking it?

Now that's using her paws!

We love these type of games, and we encourage you try one with your dog!  We will admit our collies haven't figured out how to lift up the blocks yet, but I bet they will.  Kori finally solved the game in her own way, she tipped it over so all the treats just spilled out.  While she doesn't get any points for finesse, she did get the job done!  lol  You can order one of these Outward Hound Doggy Blocks Spinner interactive toys by clicking on this link.  They are made with durable food-safe plastic and they are BPA, PVC, & phthalate free.  Thanks Chewy.com for sending us this toy, the collies  and puppies sure had fun!


Let's talk potty pads!

Every month we are fortunate enough to do reviews for Chewy.com.  We love Chewy because they send products to pet bloggers, because they care about the quality of the products they sell.  They care what pet lovers think, and they take pride in providing outstanding service to their customers.  The products we receive are sent to us for our honest opinion, and we are in no way reimbursed for our reviews.



This month we were so excited to see that one of the items available for review were Frisco Training Potty Pads!  The timing could not have been more perfect, since our girl, Kori, just blessed us with five little bundles of love.  So we jumped at the chance to review this product.


Of course, since these puppies were just born on April 30th, we had to wait until they were a little bigger before they would be using the pads.


Always check the labels!

Curious puppies!
Active puppies need puppy pads to stay clean while wrestling!
When starting to train puppies to go potty outside, the pads are a great way to encourage them to eliminate in the right locations!




These potty pads worked great, we were very happy we had them, as five little puppies can make a big mess!  They really helped to keep our puppies clean, and as we begin the process of potty training them, we expect these will make the process MUCH easier for us!  Thank you so much Chewy.com, we loved these and will definitely be ordering more...tomorrow!  (Because five puppies go through a lot of potty pads!)

Wyatt, the biggest pup in the litter,he is just like his Uncle Ryder!
Lovely, gentle Sophie.  She is my little shadow, always by my side or in my lap.

I just love these puppies so much!  Their personalities are showing, and they are each so sweet!  We are following the guidelines of "Puppy Culture," which is a method of raising puppies that are calm, sweet, well socialized and bomb-proof.  Check out the Puppy Culture Facebook group to learn more!
