Phoenix's Balancing Act!


One of my favorite things about Phoenix is that she will try anything for me. 


We have not done any parkour or balance work in a long time! 


She did so well! I can't believe she was able to get all four paws up on this tiny bar! She's such an awesome little dog!

Weruva Caloric Harmony Dog Food! A Chewy Review!


Hi everyone! It's that time again for our monthly chewy.com review! Chewy.com is one of our favorite companies! They ship all of your favorite pet products right to your door! Chewy has amazing customer service and their shipping is incredibly fast. We received our food as part of the chewy.com blogger program in exchange for an honest review.


Zoe and Phoenix are fed a rotational diet of high quality kibble and some raw. This month I could not pass up the opportunity to try Weruva Caloric Harmony dry dog food. I've heard some awesome things about this brand and they get a 5 Star Rating on Dog Food Advisor! We got the Chicken and Pumpkin formula.



Weruva Caloric Harmony food is an awesome choice for pups who have sensitive digestive tracts. The food does not contain any grain or potatoes. Weruva is carnivore friendly, using protein as the major calorie source but has low glycemic ingredients that keep your dog feeling fuller for a longer period of time. This is a great food for those dogs who need to maintain or lose some weight. My dogs are in the normal weight rage but they do get a lot of training treats, weight is always a concern for us, so this is a awesome food for them to be on. 


  • Grain-free and potato-free
  • Fresh, cage-free deboned chicken
  • Low fat and ash
  • Pumpkin promotes healthy digestion
  • Low glycemic index for energy that lasts
  • No artificial flavors or preservatives
  • Formulated for all life stages
  • Salmon oil keeps skin and coats healthy

Zoe and Phoenix both really liked this food! They had no tummy issues from trying it and they did really well on it. I would definitely get this food again and I would recommend checking Weruva out!

Poisonous Water Hemlock! Beware When Hiking!

Phoenix poses next to the Water Hemlock

I'm in a bunch dog facebook groups and recently there was a post about a dog who went hiking and accidentally ate Water Hemlock. The dog unfortunately passed away about an hour after ingesting it because the plant is highly toxic! This really concerned me because my dogs are big grass eaters and we are out hiking a lot.


After doing some research, I found that Water Hemlock is extremely common in the Pacific Northwest, although it can grow wherever the ground is moist. It's often found by water but not always. It's pretty much everywhere! I've found it all over our neighborhood and at all of the parks we go to. It was shocking to me that I've lived here for a while and never heard about this before.


Since I have not seen this topic come up, I decided that I should let everyone else know about it! If you're hiking be on the look out for this plant and don't let your dogs eat it! We will definitely be more cautious! The girls love grass so much but this is too scary to ignore!

Have you ever seen this plant before?

Hiking Mt. Tabor!


We recently went hiking over at Mt. Tabor, it's an old dormant volcano that overlooks Portland. They've turned it into a really nice park and it also has a bunch of reservoirs that house most of the city's water supply.


It's a volcano/mountain so there are a lot of stairs to climb! We generally park about half way up and then we can either go down or up and it's not that big of a deal to get back to the car after we've worn ourselves out.


We had a good time but the day was filled with a lot of frustration. I've honestly never seen so many illegal off leash dogs at one time in one place in my life. We saw around 15 off leash dogs!!! It was absolutely insane. I would of called them in but I don't think the city patrols on Sundays.


Even though it was very frustrating and a bunch of dogs did end up running up to us, Phoenix did so awesome! She didn't get snarky at all. She was so good and I was really happy with how relaxed she was.

I really like Mt. Tabor, it's a beautiful park with gorgeous views of the city and I would go again, I just really wish the city would patrol on the weekends!
