What? For MOI??? Prequel to Chewy.Com Review

 The other day (a couple of weeks ago) the DELIVERY person brought something to the door. It was a BOX from! I love when the delivery person does that.

I forgot that we had picked something from the November newsletter because we had already reviewed the Cat Tree that Sunshine reviewed at the beginning of November. But here it WAS! We both went a little crazy when it arrived.

The reason Molly's face is fuzzy in this picture is because she could not stand still - she was that excited! Mommy could not open the box fast enough.

What is it? What is it? It looks like some kind of meal. It's . . . It's . . . It is . . . 
Hill's Science Diet Adult Small & Toy Breed Savory Chicken & Vegetable Stew Dog Food Trays, 3.5-oz, case of 12

I HOPE I like it. I will definitely give it a try, that's for SURE. Thank you I will write my review tomorrow.

What do you MEAN it is NOT for ME????

The Trees Are Shakin' It OFF Today!

It is so windy today. It started last night with some occasional GUSTS. I didn't think too much of it because it was just a bit windy and only once in a while. This morning, though, it has been pretty steady and I admit I have been startled more than once by a door slamming shut or something rattling on the roof. I took a look outside and our tree in the front is shaking and shaking. The more it shakes, the more the LEAVES fall. And they keep falling, falling, falling - so much that it looks like RAIN. Not wet rain but a RAIN of LEAVES. And the pile on the sidewalk (and on Mommy's car) keeps growing and growing.

At this rate, we are going to have NAKED trees before the end of the day. I don't see how it could be otherwise.

I, for one, am kind of happy about this annual shedding of the LEAVES. It means that when I go on a walkie I get to CRUNCH through the leaves on the ground. It is so satisfying. Don't you think? It is a nice reminder that AUTUMN is definitely here and Thanksgiving is right around the corner.

I Don't Believe in Wordless

So let me tell you a little about this photo. This is me RELAXING on Mommy #1's bed. This is in her room on campus, in the school APARTMENTS for upper classpeople. She is THIRD year this year. I can hardly believe it because it seems she just started college and here she is - more than halfway done.

I really like her room. It gets light in the afternoon and has trees right outside the window. I can snooze here all day an no one bothers me (ahem, Molly). In fact, I kinda like the independence I have when I am here. So I guess this photo represents autonomy for me. I am my OWN PUG when I am here.

That is not to say I don't miss HOME, though. The bad part of two Mommys in different places is I miss the other Mommy when I am not with her.

This is where I am when I am with Mommy #2. . . on her LAP. It is my favorite place to be. Well, when I am not on Mommy #1's bed, that is.

Did I say I am a LUCKY PUG?

Doing My PUG Duty

I am one lucky PUG princess. I get to live (kinda) in two places because I have TWO MOMMYS. Mommy #2 is in our main home and Mommy #1 is in university 7.5 miles away. She lives on campus in an apartment. This year she has been able to have me for SLEEP-OVERS which is so much fun for me! I get to meet all of her friends and I gotta say, I loves her roomie Ms I.

I pretty much spend my time snuggling with Mommy #1 while she is studying BUT when she is otherwise busy, I spend some time snuggling with Beremy Bear. He is 5 feet tall and very soft and plushy. Perfect for an afternoon nap.

I feel particularly lucky to be able to spend time on campus. Not only am I a pug who likes being too smart for my own good, but I also get to help Mommy #1 not be so stressed or anxious. You know how it is in college. It can be a very stressful environment. I am just glad I can be there for her.

In addition to STRESS relief, I also helped Mommy #2 do something she has NEVER done before - VOTE. We went through the info booklet together and discussed the candidates and issues. It was interesting. Then we marked the ballot and

#ChewyInfluencer Up a TREE With Sunshine

What? You're just telling me NOW that we went missing ALL LAST WEEK?
I am so sorry DEDICATED Furiends. Somehow a whole week went by without a PEEP from me. It is NOT supposed to ever happen. I APOLOGIZE profusely about it and promised that I HOPE it NEVER happens again. At least, not without warning.
There is NO EXCUSE, Mommy!

In the meantime, in a GALAXY far, far away. . .

We got an email from Ms Natalie and Ms Kristin from CHEWY.COM, our favorite place to shop, asking if we were interested in doing a special review for a KITTY PRODUCT. We did not have to think about it too long because, honestly, everything we try from CHEWY.COM is fun and an adventure (even when less than successful). This time we were asked to review a Frisco 62-in Cat Tree, Cream By Frisco . Sunshine has NEVER had a tree before. She has her Frisco Condo which she loves. . .

BUTT ( get it??) that is about it for furniture. She makes the most of it by stealing our beds, sleeping on all of the huMOMs' favorite chairs, and napping in the bay window. But she never had a tree and given she is 16 years old, I was not sure it would even be of any use for her. I made contingency plans should it prove a FAIL. I did NOT need to.

In less than a week, the KITTY TREE was delivered to our front door. The box was HUGE and HEAVY. Mommy DRAGGED it into the foyer where it stayed until Cousin E and her BF J came home. They were tasked with assembling it - yes, it comes in pieces with instructions, hardware and tools.

It took less than half an hour for them to put the TREE together. When they were done, they posed Sunshine on it so you can get a sense of scale. That TREE is HUGE. It stands 6 ft tall and is over 3 ft wide. We were not sure if Sunshine could even make it to the top shelf on her own.

They moved it into a better lit spot and showed Sunshine all the of the levels and features. She seemed interested. Next thing you know, she is spending all of her FREE TIME exploring it. By "exploring" you know I mean SLEEPING. She loves it so much. We even put her food dish on the level she is sitting on in the picture. It works perfectly because it is high enough no other critter (ME) can eat it AND she only has to change one level from where she already is.

The Frisco 62" Cat Tree is covered in wonderful cream colored low pile carpet which feels good on the paws, It features sisal on the "legs" so when Sunshine feels the need to scratch she does not have to go far. She uses the flat scratching pad on the first "floor" as a ramp to move up, though. Otherwise we would need to move a chair or ladder close by for her to use. She is in great shape for her age but is elderly nonetheless. It is a very sturdy and good looking structure.

We have to really give this item a STANDING OVATION for quality and usefulness. Even an older cat can find someplace comfortable and accessible on it.

We at Casa de Noodles, featuring Sunshine the Cat, present to the Frisco Cat Tree the previously UNHEARD OF


It is an excellent product which we are proud to have in our home.

Oh My PUG! I Love YOU!!

Thank you to all who commented on my cry for validation yesterday. I have just been noticing my numbers falling and wondered if I was still relevant.


It is so hard nowadays to believe anyone is on the blogs anymore. Face it, we have been usurped by other social media like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I get it. I am one of those who are 
hit-and-run type of followers. I read but seldom comment. So I get it. Especially now with the Holidays fast approaching. But I come from a time when Blogville was everything and all of my FURiends were here. And I keep hoping for this to still be true.


Do you have any plans for the weekend? I have a few things on my docket like visiting my Mommy #1 on campus. I love, love, love  being a college student if only for a day. And it is so nice to spend time with her.

I also plan to get outside for some fresh air because the weather is supposed to be super good for OUT-DOORING. I live in the SUBURBS so there isn't a lot of wild open spaces (that allow dogs) but there are some.

I mostly plan to CHILL. I am the best at this. So while the family is bustling about doing their things, I will be found here, in my favorite spot - Molly's Red Bed.

Have a fantastic weekend my FURiends. I love you all!!!
