Thankful Thursday: Chewies for Gotcha Day

Hey It’s Jet Here.

As you probably know by now, Mom presented a somewhat reasonable explanation for delaying my Gotcha Day celebration, which should have been this past Sunday.  (Summer Camp Reunion, 35 years in the making!)  More on my belated special day in upcoming posts.

While Mom will be late, a certain Mr. Brent started my Gotcha Day celebration EARLY!  For the FIRST TIME, Mom and I were contacted to review a company’s services.  Mr. Brent from Chewy.com  reached out and asked if we would like to try out their website.  Mom’s first response… “Jetty, you can finally earn your own biscuit $!”  Even tech challenged Mom navigated the site with ease, toggling between companies, checking her cart,  and searching items swiftly.  We give Chewy a 10 on the “user friendly” scale!

We think Chewy.com has Casa Jet on speed dial or something because when Mom and I made our decisions and placed our order mid-morning on Thursday, by Saturday our treats had arrived.  Seriously?  Faster than the pony express, carrier pigeons, or lamborginis we’re still wondering how my special box arrived so quickly.

We really needed some new chewy (pun intended!) toys so we focused on that part of the site.  We appreciated the myriad (VBP – vocab building project) of natural products (moose, deer and elk antlers) with the country of origin noted as well as the broad selection of BPA free chew toys (including some recycled products).  As the family guy I am, I split my gift certificate with JJ.  Here’s what we purchased.

 Since Mom purchased one for JJ a few months ago, and she loves it too dearly to share, I asked Mom if I could have one too, only in manly man colors!

Finally, I get to enjoy…

Because I, ahem, love her, I selected two new toys for Little Miss Chewminator.

Rated as a tough toy by Zany, “you know who” ripped through it in 15 min, destuffifying the poor boomerang’s guts all over the couch.  Can’t recommend this for chewers 7+ on the chewing scale… a pricey 15 min!

JJ LOVES the 2nd toy; Mom and I thought the design rocked.  Mom rarely places treats inside (we live in the buggy tropics), however, JJ barely notices.

Mom thought I might enjoy giving the toy a test run… before losing possession forever to Little Miss Mine, Mine, Mine!

Since JJ absconded (VBP) with my deer antler 6 months ago, (actually 2 of them!) Mom thought she would try moose for me.

She gave it to me right before bed, since JJ keeps her antlers in Mom’s bed!

Good news/bad news.  I LOVED the antler so much… I devoured the treat in less than 24 hours… which made for a pricey treat!  Mom thinks she might try elk next time.  Usually, antlers last forever, so, we think maybe the moose antler might have been sliced instead of whole or something.

Another thanks to Chewy.com day!
