Finally Friday and Bad Jerky

Nala is currently barking at me and making other bulldog noises in an effort to get me to hand her another treat. Treats have been a bone of contention in the news lately with reports of many dogs falling ill and or dying from chicken jerky treats made in China.

I try to look at all the labels when I am at the various pet stores and specifically look for where a product is manufactured! I did however buy in the past Milo's Meatballs which Nala really enjoyed but come to find out they are produced over seas and part of a recall!\

I am going to stick to brands I know that are made here in the US where standards are higher and hopefully we can get some regulation in the pet food industry to stop selling inferior products that make our pets sick!

I am also thinking of getting a food dehydrator and making my own jerky for Nala. It may be a good investment!

Well off to work and on the verge of a wonderful fall weekend here in New Jersey!


Is it Friday yet?

Munching Monday

Another work week is ahead of us much to Nala'a chagrin! She prefers the weekends when we are home with her. With all the attention she gets it's difficult to face Monday morning as you might imagine.

To show you what I mean here is a picture of my husbands studio chair that is in his office. She has been whittling away on it and this past Friday she really went to town! Its not like she doesn't have enough chew toys to make any dog jealous!  Frustration perhaps or just bulldog tenacity to chew something up to wood pulp!?

"Did I do that?"

Whatever you do don't sit there! Good week all!

Thursday Almost Friday!

Sorry I haven't posted anything all week. Its been kind of crazy! I just got around to trying on the Halloween costume that I got for Nala back in August and found out it's too small! Either I have to make some adjustment to it or find another one. Since I am not very handy with a needle and thread I will probably need to do plan B!

I took Nala for her bath the other day which turned out to be a problem situation! She was up all night scratching away. I guess the shampoo they used irritated her skin. So back she went the next day and they rinsed her and then used some kind of oatmeal conditioner. She was better but I still catch her scratching every now and then. Oh that bulldog skin!

Okay it's almost a weekend folks hang in there!

"This doesn't work for me!"

Guess What Day It Is?

Yes if you haven't seen the Geico commercial with the camel a gazillion times it is Wednesday otherwise known as hump day!

Unbeknownst to Nala it is also wash day since she is going for her bath this afternoon. Never an enjoyable event for dogs but a necessary evil! She is past her expiration date on doggy dander and really needs her nails filed down.  

The picture below should be right in step with the upcoming Halloween season. I am going title it "Ghost Dog". It has a spooky feel with the demon eyes effect! We all know that Nala is anything but!

Enjoy your hump day all!

Finally Friday

What a week of wonderful weather! What a lively alliteration! Its been summer like all week with warm sunny days in the low 80's that you hope would never end. But like all things this too will pass!

I ordered from Ebay a LED joggers light to put on Nala's collar. My friend Pat had one on Katie's collar the other night and I thought it was a great safety device  for evening walks. It flashes at different speeds and is very visible at a distance. It was only $6.00 and takes AA batteries. I will let you know how it works out for us.

Nala is ready for the weekend but she has taken a moment to stop and smell the flowers!

TGIF all!

Shut Down Tuesday

Is it the government shut down that has Nala bummed or is it the fact I ran out of her new favorite treat, Natural Balance Jerky Bars Chicken and Sweet Potato formula?!

Maybe a little of both! Better make a run to Petco! As for the government they will have to figure it out for themselves!
