Check the Freezer

MERCI:  We didn't expect to be posting so soon.  We're supposed to be on a hiatus while Jan tears the house apart looking for her energy.  And her memory. Remember we mentioned she forgot to take a leash when she went back to the vet's office last week to pick up Marcus?  Well, when they got home she ran inside and grabbed his leash to bring him in but can't remember what she did with it then.  She has spent the last week looking for it. (The leash, not Marcus.)   

PERCY:  Has she checked the freezer?

MERCI:  The reason we're posting today is because Jan finally realized this is the last day of March and she hasn't helped us with our March Chewy review.  She put all the other dogs outside so I could do my taste test without them trying to steal my treats.

PERCY:  But a treat is on the floor and you're not eating it.  It sure smells good.  Don't you like it?

MERCI:  Jan was just about to tell me I can have it and take my picture before you butted in, Percy.  If you move out of the shot, I can eat it.

RUSTY:  I smelled something edible and came by for a taste.  And some attention.

MERCI:  You aren't a dog either, Rusty.  I think you and Percy just came by to get your pictures taken.

RUSTY:  It worked, didn't it?

SAM:  Now that Merci has given the treats her seal of approval, it's our turn.  When Jan tried to come outside, Buddy and Marcus blocked the door.  Usually Marcus pushes Buddy down the steps to get inside first, but today Buddy ...

MARCUS:  ... Buddy pushed me.  He PUSHED ME out of the way and squeezed through the crack in the door.  But Jan fooled him.  She came outside so we all get some treats.

BUDDY:  This month we have some natural grain & gluten free Merrick Kitchen Bites.  These are the Cowboy Cookout.  They're oven baked with real beef, potatoes and carrots. 

MARCUS:  I'm sitting nicely and waiting patiently, so where are my treats?

SAM:  Perhaps Jan is waiting for you to wash your face.  As usual, you're covered in mud.  You even have mud spattered in your ear today.

MARCUS:  I don't need a bath for my taste buds to work.  Here, I can tell you what's in them.  Deboned beef, sweet potatoes, potatoes, peas, organic cane molasses, canola oil, carrots, apples, flaxseed, cumin, gelatin, mixed tocopherals and rosemary.

BUDDY:  Your taste buds really do work better when you're muddy!

SAM:  He was reading from the package in Jan's hand.

MARCUS:  Mud doesn't affect my eyesight either.

BUDDY:  I think I need glasses, but my nose still works well.  You knocked my treat out of Jan's hand, Sam.

We give the Merrick Kitchen Bites four paws up.  Although Percy and Rusty didn't actually taste one, they both came running when Jan opened the bag.

Chewy.com provided us with a sample bag of the treats but we were not paid or influenced on what to say. 


  1. Treats for everyone! We hope Jan finds everything she's looking for. We know y'all will help.

  2. Chewy.Com is the BESTEST of ALL.... Those sound DELICIOUS.... We have had the Cowboy and it IS good....
    We are glad to see you.... it is HARD to take a HIATUS from Blogville, Isn't it?

  3. We know what it's like to have a "memory challenged" assistant, you just have to have extra patience with them!

    We just love Chewy.com...and those treats must be totally delish!!

  4. We never thought to ask mom to check the freezer. Usually it's dad's keys that go missing (MOL). Those treats look like they got everyone's seal of approval!!

  5. Bet you were up to mischief that's why you wouldn't let Jan out BOL

  14. Yay for the treats! We all love treats! Humans too!

  15. Those treats sounded delicious! Good review.

  16. Did you find the leash? It's usually in the last place you look.
    No wonder Jan lost her energy. Just corralling everybody for the taste test sounded like a lot of work!
    We love Chewy's. Hope they send you extra treats.

  17. Yay ! You finally got the treats ! Purrs

  18. So much news, leashes, treats, foods!
    Jan's mind sounds like our mom's mind....missing in action.

  19. Most of my cats like Merrick; maybe Kitchen Bites will make a nice snack for them. Are they good for cats, too?

    Thank you for your comments on Tungsten's passing. She was my friend, and one never stops mourning for a friend.

  20. OMC Hope Marcus didn't have to spend da week in da caw. MOL We do hope and purray fings get better fur y'all and soon.

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Lexi

  21. We have to watch the peeps here get all frantic when they can't find something they just know is there...somewhere...sigh...

    Take care!
