Super Fetch on Cannon Beach!

One of Phoenix's most favorite tricks that she's learned is to "frisbee flip". Generally we make sure this trick is very controlled. We were super surprised that she flipped for her ball on the beach! Even more shocking that I captured it with my camera!!!

Phoenix loves playing fetch!

Grandma Lucy's Pet Food & Treats Review & Giveaway!

Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a fantastic day! We are super excited because we have a new review to share with you. We were asked by Grandma Lucy's to review some of their treats and do a giveaway!

Grandma Lucy's is a fantastic family owned and operated business that started around 16 years ago when Lucy, the owner's 11 year old English Cocker Spaniel, became extremely picky about what she would eat. She had developed food allergies that prevented her from eating just any treat. They tried a lot of treats on the market but Lucy wouldn't eat any of them. After doing a lot of research and numerous conversations with veterinarians and pet nutritionists, they began to home cook Lucy’s meals and treats. Surprisingly for a dog that had become very picky, she loved her home cooked meals and treats. The next step seemed natural, they wanted to be able to share their healthy food and treats with other pet owners!

Grandma Lucy’s was one of the first companies to introduce 100% human-grade pet treats to the pet food market! The company uses only human-grade ingredients from trusted restaurant suppliers, most of their meat is sourced in the USA and there are no ingredients from China. If it is not good enough for human’s to eat, it will never be included in their food or treats – Grandma Lucy’s pets eat better than people!

Grandma Lucy's "nose-licking" good freeze dried Chicken Singles is the first treat that the girls tried! Phoenix was super excited about them and couldn't wait! These treats are a single ingredient treat. They are made from 100% USA sourced chicken. They can be fed to both dogs and cats, which is a huge plus for me since we have both!

If your dog has a problem with chicken, the singles line has other proteins which include: Liver, Pork, Ocean White Fish, Tuna and Sweet Potatoes.

100% USA sourced Chicken
Hormone and Antibiotic-Free
Single Protein Source
No By-Products or Preservatives
All Natural
Made in California 

Both Zoe and Phoencix really liked these treats! They consider them to be high value and they worked really hard to get them. These treats would make an excellent training treat, they break up easily. Since they are freeze dried there was a little bit of crumbling but it didn't make too big of a mess.

The next treats we tried are the oven baked Organic Banana & Sweet Potato these treats are made with 100% USDA certified organic, human-quality ingredients in Grandma Lucy's bakery! Bananas are high in potassium making them good for the heart, kidneys, bones and nervous system. Sweet Potatoes are a great source of dietary fiber, rich in potassium, and high in antioxidants. They are also an excellent source of Beta Carotene, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. There are no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners and the treats are free of hydrogenated oils and trans fats

They also offer: Pumpkin, Blueberry, Cranberry, Apple, Peach and Coconut in their organic oven baked line.

Ingredients: Organic Wheat Flour, Organic Dehydrated Cane Juice, Organic Sunflower and/or Organic Canola Oil and/or Organic Palm Oil, Organic Brown Sugar, Organic Cane Juice Syrup, Organic Banana Powder, Organic Sweet Potato Powder, Organic Vanilla Extract, Organic Cinnamon, Soy Lecithin.

The girls really loved these treats too! These treats kind of remind me of animal crackers. They smell really good and break apart easily. There was some crumbling with them but it didn't bother me. I could use these as a bedtime treat or even for rewarding simple trained behaviors.

Overall the girls liked both of the treats we tried from Grandma Lucy's. I would definitely try other flavors and I would get these again! We would recommend checking Grandma Lucy's out and giving them a try with your pets!

ZoePhee is partnering with Grandma Lucy's and hosting a giveaway! One of our lucky readers from the US will receive the treats we tried! Enter by following the directions on the giveaway widget. The giveaway is open to residents in the US age 18 or older. I will run the giveaway for about a week and I will contact the randomly selected winner by email.

ZoePhee received treats from Grandma Lucy's in exchange for an honest review. We were not monetarily compensated. All opinions are my own.

A Favorite Portrait!

This is one of my most favorite pictures that I've taken of Zoe! I took this at the dog park a few months after I got her. Back then she was still afraid of the camera so I was lucky that she would even look at it!

Fit Dog Friday!

I haven't done one of these posts in a long time!! 

I got some neat photos of Phoenix running on the beach, showing all her muscles and how fit she is!

I love this dog! I honestly couldn't believe how focused she was on  her ball and playing with us!

"Throw the ball!!!!"

The beach is one of our most favorite places and I really wish we could visit more often! 

Do your dogs have a favorite place to visit?
