Bichonpawz is a Chewy Influencer and we received the Plato Pet Treats - Hundur's Crunch in exchange for an honest review. We did not receive any other compensation.  All opinions are my own and Chewy is not responsible for the content of this post.

You all know how excited Miss Chloe gets when she sees a Chewy Box has been dropped off (or the mail man hands it directly TO her!).

In this order, we received Hundur's Crunch fish treats for dogs by Plato Pet Treats.  Hundur's Crunch jerky fingers are 100% fish and 100% natural sustainably sourced from the cold, clean waters of Iceland.  They are rich in Omega 3's, support healthy skin and coat, and helps to safely clean teeth.




But the best part for me is that they contain ZERO additives or colors!!  Absolutely NO Corn, Wheat, or Soy!!




Hurry!  Head on over to Chewy to purchase your Hundur's Crunch fish jerky fingers TODAY!

These taste awesome and everyone is pleased!!

Flower Friday: The Iris Edition


Quite a few years back, my sister and I took a trip to an Iris Farm that is located not too far from my house.  I was seriously blown away at how many different varieties of irises there were!! 

I leave you with several of the photos I took that day...in honor of Bailey and Dory.















Things have been so busy around here with getting our new little furry family members situated and used to our schedules!  It is a work in progress.  I have not been around to visit much and I apologize for that.  We also had one of our best friends pass away unexpectedly this week.  Life is just too short.   Enjoy every single moment.

Romeo and Juliet Arrival!!



It has been an exciting couple of days around here...let me tell you!!

We have welcomed in to our home two Bichons that I adopted from the Bichon Frise Club of America Charitable Trust.  They belonged to a man who was going to assisted living and sadly, would not be able to keep his dogs.  His only request was that he wanted them to be adopted together and that they go to a good home.



When LadyBug passed away, I was absolutely, positively devastated.  My world came crashing down that day.  I couldn't even function.  



I sent out many notes to people asking if anyone knew of a Bichon in need of rescue.  Yes, there were one or two that were interesting...but the rules are so very strict from some of the rescues...it made me wonder if they really wanted to find the dogs good homes.  I have a friend in CT who forwarded me a picture of a little Bichon brought in as a stray and I had already inquired about Romeo and Juliet so I drafted a note out to the woman who had Coconut and told her I may be interested...I'd let her know.  Then, I had another one in VA that I was potentially interested in but there were some logistical issues we would have had to work out.  There was a man in Arkansas...a disabled vet...who was looking to rehome his two little Bichon / Maltese companions.  They were just 5 and 6 years old and in perfect health.  They had all of their own beds, toys, crates, strollers, etc...and he would pay for them to be brought to me.  But, something kept telling me...Romeo and Juliet were meant to be here.  So, I filled out the application and waited to hear next steps.  They had to go through a couple of vet appointments and dentals and they ended up staying at Debbi's house in PA for FIVE Weeks!  



I wasn't sure I could handle one more second!!  I was really getting anxious and excited for the dynamic duo to arrive! 

 Debbi and I kept up daily chatter with photos and videos so that I could see them in action!  That was SUCH a huge help!  Whatever did we do before videos??



So, last Thursday, Ben, me, and Chloe hopped in to the RV and headed on down to PA to fetch our new little family members.  We spent an enjoyable couple of hours with Debbi and Steve and they turned over my new little fluffs!  Debbi and Steve were absolutely FABULOUS in that they answered a ton of questions from me and were very patient in explaining the medication schedule they were both on...antibiotics / painkillers...due to their dentals and Romeo had a fatty lipoma removed.



I think Chloe was VERY confused as she normally travels great in the RV.  But, for some reason, she was very nervous on the way down to PA.  Maybe she just sensed something was up?  I tried to sit down and have a discussion with her to let her know that we were going to be picking up her new siblings...but I am not sure how much of that she understood.



Well, when we arrived and Romeo and Juliet joined us in the RV, I sensed a change in her behavior and she was absolutely fine on the way home!  Now, these two little characters have taken over every single bed and blanket and pillow in this house but Chloe doesn't seem to mind at all.  She is sitting back...watching...taking it all in!  This afternoon we all took walks around our property...and she seemed to be really enjoying having buddies!

So...there you have it friends...the rather complicated story of how Romeo and Juliet arrived in our home.

We are just thrilled that they are here and we love them already!

And

 HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL THE DAD's!!
