Greenies for Oral Health


Merci:  Jan said I look so old and lonely here she wants to cry, but I think I look very floofy and trim for my age.

Buddy:  You're supposed to tell everyone what we are reviewing today, not go fishing for compliments.


Merci:  Right. Today we are reviewing the grain free Greenies treats for a dog's oral health.  They are regular size for dogs 25 - 50 pounds.  I'm under and Marcus is over that weight; however, we all ate them. They are not suitable for dogs under 5 pounds or under 6 months of age.


Marcus:  This is what one looks like. Chewy says the key benefits are --

  •   They're the #1 vet-recommended dental chew.
  •   Complete oral care is important for your dog's total body health and can add years to their lifespan.
  •   Provides a total oral-health solution as it cleans dogs teeth by fighting both plaque and tartar buildup, freshening breath and maintaining healthier teeth and gums.
  •   Highly palatable, low-fat formula with an irresistible taste made from soluble, natural ingredients like chickpeas and potato that break down quickly for safe and easy digestion.
  •   Regular chews for dogs 25-50 pounds.


Buddy:  How do they taste?  We haven't had any complaints.  We each had one before we started this post and that finished the bag. 


 Marcus:  I'm being such a good boy as I wait for mine I deserve at least two.  They're made from -

dried chickpeas, gelatin, glycerin, powdered cellulose, dried potato, water, lecithin, natural poultry flavor, a bunch of minerals and some vitamins.  The whole list is under "Ingredients" on the Chewy Greenies treats page.



Merci:  We've only had four each within about two weeks time so we can't verify the Greenies help with oral health, but we can attest to their appeal to canines.


The product was provided by Chewy for this review.  We were not paid and Chewy is not responsible for the content.

Marcus the Great Swampi


Marcus:  I am Marcus, the Great Swampi.

Cyndi:  I think you mean the Great Swami.

Marcus:  Okay, I am the Great Swami.  I see all.  I know everything.

Cyndi:  Good, then you can tell me what happened to the treat stash I was saving for a cold night.

Marcus:  It was eaten by ... I'm sorry, I can't tell who it was.

Cyndi:  You can't tell because you can't see, or you can't tell because you're the guilty party?

Marcus:  I have a question for you.  If you can answer, I will try again to see who ate your stash.

Cyndi:  Okay.

Marcus:  Why did Jan put roller skates on her rocking chair?

Cyndi:  Because the ice skates were too wobbly?

Marcus:  What ice skates?  I asked about roller skates?  So why?

Cyndi:  I don't believe Jan put roller skates on anything.  She likes her feet on the ground!

Marcus:  Sorry, bad example.  Why did the teenager next door put roller skates on her rocking chair?

Cyndi:  She can't.  They don't have a rocking chair.

Marcus: Okay, why did the teenager next door put roller skates on OUR rocking chair? 

Cyndi:  Oh, that's easy.  Because she wanted to rock and roll.  So who ate my stash?

Taylor:  Hi, Marcus, I see you're dressed like a giraffe again.  Hey, don't go.  I was joking.

Marcus:  You broke my concentration.  I need to go lie down.

Cyndi:  Now I'll never know who ate my treat stash.

Taylor:  Oh, that's easy.  Marcus ate it last night.

Tunnel Traffic Jam


Buddy:  Jan owes us lots of treats.  Because of her we didn't even get a post up before we went to bed last night.

Percy:  And we haven't had much sleep the last few days either.  All we hear is cough, cough, cough, hack, hack, hack, honk, honk, honk.  It's like living inside a tunnel during a traffic jam with everyone blowing their horn.

Buddy  And the germs.  I can't believe the germs she's spreading.  The least she could do so we can rest and not catch her germs is to go outside and sleep in the doghouse.  Most of her should be able to fit in there.  It's not like it's raining or anything.

Percy:  We hope your peeps are all well so you furries don't have to go through this.  We furries are exhausted!   

Buddy:  We need ear plugs.  Desperately.  Before we all go deaf.

Squatters Rights



Percy:  Remember this photo from just a week ago?  then I was happy and comfy and warm.  I was also the resident of the knitted hat and scarf basket.  (Chatting With Percy)


Micah:  And then he got up and moved out and I moved in.

Percy:  I did not move out!  When I went to the kitchen for some kibble, you decided to become a squatter.


Micah:  I am not a squatter.  The bed was empty and I -

Percy:  Took advantage of my absence.

Micah:  And I checked out the residence to see if I'd like to share it with you. 


Percy:  You stole my favorite bed.

Micah: We can take turns enjoying the warmth and softness of Miss Pam's lovely knitted bed.

Percy:  Not with your scent on it, I won't!


Micah:  Okay, then, if you're vacating the premises, I'm moving in.  Would you mind cleaning up after yourself?  You've left some fur behind.

Percy:  You can keep the fur.  I'll find myself another bed somewhere.

Micah:  Oh, good.  I can't wait to see where we're moving next.
