More is Better

Chewy is definitely of the "more is better" school of thought. More food, more treats, more car rides, more petting, and MORE TOYS!

Two toys are more fun when playing tug...

Two squeaky tennis balls is better than one, and three tennis balls is even better:

So far, I think Chewy has maxed out at carrying two toys at a time. If he sees a third toy that he wants, he'll drop one or two before trying to get the new one. Whenever he manages to get two toys in his mouth, he gleefully runs to his bed or the couch with his loot! 

Chewy usually doesn't mind sharing, but he sometimes lies on his toys as if to claim them all:

It all started early on!

Barkworthies Canine Superfoods Jerky: Product Review

Barkworthies is one of our favorite brands because of their commitment to using natural, high quality and wholesome ingredients in their products, as well as their strive for innovation in the world of dog treats. They have just launched a new line of Superfood Jerky treats, combining the powers of superfoods with real meat to make a highly digestible, grain-free and gluten-free jerky treat. We are always looking for natural, healthy dog foods so that Chewy can live a long and healthy life, so we were excited to try these!

We received the Chicken Jerky with Cranberry & Blueberry recipe, but there are other recipes with various combos of meats and superfoods.

Barkworthies Canine Superfoods Chicken Jerky - So excited! *licks chops*
The packaging has an easy-pull tab for quick, hassle-free access to TREATS! No more searching for scissors or crooked edges.

Please feed me now?
The jerky comes in large, cutlet-shaped pieces about 5" long. It is the extruded kind of jerky, with all the ingredients mixed in. Personally, I prefer the kind of jerky that is made from meat strips and looks more natural, but Chewy does not care at all. If it smells like meat and tastes like meat, he is pleased! On the plus side, since all the other ingredients are mixed into the meat, you don't end up with sticky residue on your fingers from any flavor coatings.

Chewy could not wait to try the treats, and A LOT of drool was produced during the wait. 

Let me have it!
The jerky seems very chewy, as it took longer than usual for Chewy to work through it (compared to similarly sized jerky treats).

*chew chew chew*

That was delicious!

Can I have some more?
Chewy and Chewy's human approved!

Four paws up from Chewy!

Headrests for Chewy

In addition to Chewy's knack for using anything as a bed, he can also find a suitable headrest anywhere!

Toys are the most common things that Chewy uses as pillows. After he is done squeaking/chewing/ playing, he just plops his head right on top for a quick, comfy snooze.

He also likes to use his beds as headrests while he lies on the floor (tile is cool).

The couch armrests are the perfect height for lounging.

Couch + stuffie = ultra comfy

 He can prop his head on the baseboards...

Even a tiny corner between doorways can support a Chewy head.

A bar stool footrest is good, too.

Chewy is just a pro at getting comfy!
