Zuke's Mobility

Marcus:  Hello, this is Marcus the Younger here to tell you about today's dog product review.  As you know, I'm healthy and spry but I live with two older dogs that complain of aches and pains and creaky bones.

What's that, Buddy?  Oh, I'm sorry.  Their bones don't creak; their joints do.

Fall weather has arrived and that means cooler temperatures at night, so this is a good time to review a creaky product.  I mean a product for creaky dogs.

Jan said they're not meant for me, but they're intended for mature or senior dogs.  What's she talking about?  I'm mature.  I am too mature, Merci!  I am not almost three going on six months!

Zuke's Mobility are grain-free chews that offer daily support for healthy hips and joints.  We have the peanut butter formula, which is great because we all love peanut butter.  There is also a chicken formula.  We would probably like that one too.  Which formula do you think you would prefer? 

According to Chewy, the key benefits are:

   * Grain-free, functional treats that are designed to support hip and joint health and are perfect for senior dogs and large breed dogs that may have trouble with stairs, getting up, sore after exercise, or just simply slowing down with age.

    *Loaded with natural, healthy ingredients such as calcium lactate, glucosamine, chondroitin, turmeric, MSM, EPA, and DHA.
* Formulated for bone strength, to help rebuild and repair tissue and cartilage, reduce pain, and reduce inflammation.

    *Tasty treat makes providing your pup with hip and joint support easy and enjoyable.

    *High-quality, fresh, healthy chew that's made in small batches here in the USA.

I thought you said these aren't intended for me, Jan.  Are you teasing me?   I can have one and only one?  Thank you.  I'll just take that before you change your mind.

Buddy:  I was napping in Marcus's crate and you woke me up to give me a treat, Jan.  Now you're complaining I ate it before you had a chance to take a picture?  Would you like me to open my mouth so you can get a picture of where the treat went?

 Merci:  Oh, thank you, Jan.  For once I don't have to get up to get a treat.  Could you pick it up and put it in my mouth so I don't have to move?  No, no, just kidding.  I have it.

Marcus:  I think those two are trying to take over as house clown.  We all tried the Zuke's Mobility treats and really liked them.

Be sure to follow the cautions on the package.  These are not intended for pregnant or breeding dogs. Give to a dog according to the dog's weight with or after a meal.

We received the bag of dog treats from Chewy for this review.  We received no other compensation.  Any ideas expressed are our own.

A Trash Mover

 Marcus:  (sung to the tune of ... I have no idea!)

Here I come walking down the street.
Leading Jan by the hand with two mismatched leash.
Throw it down, plastic bottle or can.
Take it back, I'll bite your hand.

I'm a trash mover, yes, a trash mover.
Whoo hoo, I'm a trash mover!

I can't believe how many people throw their trash down and keep going.  Our walks are a gold mine of trash - and broken glass - but Jan will only allow me to move a plastic bottle from Point A to Point B.  She said it keeps me out of other trouble.  I have no idea what she's talking about.

National BOO Day

Taylor:  Whoa!  What's that?

Merci:  It's the Funny Farmer Pumpkin Patch.  Nellie made it for us.

Rusty:  There were too many of us for Nellie to put all our names on  one or even two pumpkins, so she made us our own pumpkin patch.

Merci:  Yes.  We're "The Funny Farmer Patch" over at the Nellie on the Edge blog.  She still has room for some other bloggers if they hurry.

Taylor:  We don't have to eat all those pumpkins, do we?

Merci:  No, they're for Halloween.  It will be here on October 31.  That's just over a week away.

Rusty:  Why would you think we'd have to eat them?

Taylor:  Jan feeds us a little pumpkin on occasion to keep us "regular".  A little goes a long way.

Merci:  Yep, you eat too much and Halloween could become National Poop Day.

Taylor:   I didn't arrive until last November, so I've never heard of Halloween.  What is it?

Rusty:  I guess you could call it National BOO!!  Day.  Hey, Taylor, come back here.  I was just joking.

Merci:  Too late, Rusty.  Taylor's digging in the litter pan.

Rusty:  Funny, that's the same response I had when Buddy screamed "boo!" at me on my first Halloween here.

Great Blackmail Material

Percy:  Wow, did you see that?

Marcus:  No.  What did you see.

Percy:  Nothing.  I didn't see anything either.

Marcus: Jan would be so relieved if she knew we didn't see what just happened.

Percy:  Do you think we should tell her we didn't see it?

Marcus:  No way!  Great blackmail material.

Percy:  Pssst:  Thank you, Yam Aunty!  You were certainly more awake when you read this than I was when I wrote it late last night.  She noticed I'm talking to Marcus - not Buddy!  Sorry, Marcus.  It's corrected.  :)

We're joining Pepi Smart Dog for today's Thankful Thursday blog hop.
