Rambling Thoughts

Image
Hey! I have a lot of thoughts rambling around in my brain so thought it would be good to write them down. If you are here for a review, you might want to skip this post, read my others and another dog product review will be out soon (Plus Christmas gift guides).

Today, I went to my mother's house in Upper Hutt for the last time. She has officially sold her home here, and really cemented her move to Whanganui. She has been living in Whanganui for the past two years but having the home here made it seem like she still was on a holiday. Now it is real. I am truly happy for her, even though it means I can't just pop around the corner to visit her whenever I please. She has shown that no matter your age or situation, you can change your life if you want to. I am so proud of her, moving to a new city seems like an impossible task to me who has been in Upper Hutt all my life. She has done it with grace and resilience, managing to get a new job she loves, work with kids that are absol…

NZ Natural Pet Food Co. Woof Treats

Image
Hey! We got approached by The New Zealand Natural Pet Food Co. to trial some of their treats and see what we thought of them. As always, these reviews are 100% Diego's and I's honest opinion, and whether something was sent to us for free or purchased by myself it doesn't sway our opinion. Especially Diego's since he has no idea at what money means.


The lovely folk sent us two packs of their Woof Freeze Dried Dog Bites to try in the flavours Wild Brushtail and Lamb. Initial thoughts is that this packaging is effective! It is white with one main coloured image on the front of your meat/vegetables that make that treat up. The rest of the front is mainly black or muted coloured writing. I adore this type of packaging. It's a 'no bullshit' approach that I really appreciate. The back is just as effective, with a clear ingredient list, important notes including the benefits of ingredients chosen (and pictures) and what it contains none of. Props to whoever designe…

Wellington Pet Expo Haul

Hey! Last weekend I headed down to the Wellington Pet Expo and not only did I pick up some awesome new things, I managed to grab a range of samples to try out. This expo seems to get better every year, and I loved the range of stalls and how passionate all the stall owners were.

Wolves of Wellington
How could I walk past the Wolves of Wellington booth and not pick up anything?! I managed to grab another amazing bandana, and this one I especially love with the frilled edging. I did wonder if this one would be a bit girly for Diego, but he definitely pulls it off! I also grabbed a Snoop from their Planet Dog range which is a great boredom breaker toy. Gretchen also threw in this treat, which I believe she said is some sort of throat!

This photo is a mix of random goodies we got. First off we got a small sample bag of Natures Goodness dog food. This is not a dog food I am interested in feeding Diego as a staple in his diet, but will use these as random treats during training. We also got …
