Another box from Mr. Chewy

Happy Monday to you!  This weekend the UPS driver dropped something off at our house for Hunter.  Firstly, I have to give a shout out to Andrew at Chewy; he always seems to get the treat to our house within days of our request. is a wonderful company; if you aren't familiar with them, by all means check them out. 
  •  For this months treat, we picked Old Mother Hubbard's Soft Baked Dog Snack in Peanut Butter and Carob flavoring. 
     Hunter always gets excited when he gets to pull something out of a box.

    From the web site: "Old Mother Hubbard Gourmet Goodies Soft Bakes with Peanut Butter & Carob Moist Baked Dog Treats

    Fresh from Old Mother Hubbard's pet bakery come Gourmet Goodies - a line of unique, artisanal gourmet baked treats. It’s a great day for a treat from the Gourmet Goodies collection! With plenty of artisanal textures and tastes to choose from, your dog will discover a new, delicious flavor in each mouthwatering morsel! You can smell the slow-baked goodness of each ingredient in these tender cookies. How does your dog say yum?
    Key Benefits
  • Deliciously moist inside - soft & tasty
  • Mouthwatering oven-baked aroma
  • All natural, all pleasing
  • Made in the USA!
  • Whole Wheat Flour, Honey, Peanut Butter, Canola Oil (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Carob, Cane Molasses, Natural Vanilla Flavor"
In the past, we've given other dogs Old Mother Hubbard treats and they always loved them. It was such a shock that Hunter took the treat but immediately dropped it and wanted nothing to do with it. I will say that although the package says Moist and Soft, the treats weren't. They weren't as hard as some but not as soft as I expected; in fact, breaking one in half was a bit tough to do. I was stumped at Hunter's reaction because he loves treats and Peanut Butter. When I looked at the ingredients I wondered if it could be the Whole Wheat Flour; we tend to stay away from anything gluten. Usually, I can tell if it bothers him because his eyes will get runny. After trying to get him to taste the treats several times, I gave up. I am thankful for the ability to test the different products before buying them.

The rest of the weekend was filled with enjoying warm, spring-like weather.  I packed several more boxes; now that we know when we will move, there is no reason to wait.  May will be here before we know it!
I would love to say that the warm weather is here to stay but we do have more snow this week.  I would be happy to just have sunshine.
Today our oldest Grandson turns 13; wow is all I can say.  We will have a family party tonight, so I'll post photos tomorrow.  I can't tell you enough how proud of him we are and how much we love him!

Have a Happy Day!
Noreen & Hunter


  1. Looks like treat time all round. Glad the weather has improved and Happy 13th Birthday to your grandpeeps. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Our Skye will be like that, just drops something she doesn't want. Sorry Hunter didn't like them. I was happy to see there were made in the USA, I won't buy anything else!
    Happy 13th Birthday to John and have fun at the party tonight.

  3. 13 is a big birthday! We are waiting for a delivery from Mr. Chewy and minute now!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  4. We checked out the chewy Web site and we'll definitely be ordering some things from them.

  5. They sound very tasty, except no wheat for us
    Lily & Edward

  6. Ooooh, Maggie and I get the regular, crunchy Old Mother Hubbard's for treats! We love them! The ones we get are really small, though ... I think our mom needs to look into these!

  7. Mom says she doesn't think we would ever turn down a treat = that would be Ciara and Lightning. Phantom is much pickier. We are still waiting for our FIRST test box to arrive from Mr.Chewy. We hopeit comes soon.

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  8. You know how thrilled we are with Chewy, and Andrew in particular! He is always on top of things!! Those treats sound great...we will have to try them! I just love seeing Hunter open "his" box!! The girls are the same way. Happy 13th to your grandson!!
