The Joy of Bad Hair Days - Pixel Has Bed Head

Bad hair days. We all have them. What separates the dogs from the puppies is how you deal with them. Are you going to freak out and get stressed over a few (thousand) hairs out of whack of are you going to stand tall and make others think you're starting a new trend in hair fashion? Think about it...and remember this wise Pixel quote, aka Pixelism:
"Don't let bad hair day get you down. Just you meant to style it that way."

Pixel's Adventures in Eating the Best Natural Food for #PinnacleHealthyPets

This post is sponsored by Pinnacle and the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Pinnacle’s reformulated Grain Free Dog Food but Pixel Blue Eyes: Her Tails of Adventure only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Pinnacle is not responsible for the content of this article.

I am a kibble connoisseur. I seek out the best and pride myself in knowing what is good. Last month, I went searching for the pinnacle of kibble, the very finest of the finest, the best of the best. Since I seek adventure, nature's bounty and wholesome goodness, I need a dog food that will provide me with good, wholesome ingredients, a holistic dog food that delivers tasty good health but is also good for dogs with sensitive stomachs like mine.

I found the pinnacle of kibble in Pinnacle® Grain Free Holistic Pet Food. Pinnacle launched in 1998 as a breakthrough brand in natural holistic dog food. And while Pinnacle has always had holistic health ingredients like quinoa, pumpkin, kelp, flax seed, blueberries & sweet potatoes (two of my FAVORITE foods) and cottage May 2015, they took all dog recipes Grain Free to facilitate easier digestion.

As mentioned in my Pinnacle article last month, I have been giving this food a try, and let me tell you, this limited ingredient diet, or LID, dog food is delicious! It's the perfect kibble size for chewing, no matter what size dog you are, and the crunch is superb! Now, I don't just try any old dog food, so you can trust that this is good kibble in my humble Pixel opinion. It makes me feel like a real #PinnacleHealthyPet. Mommy and I both give it two paws (and thumbs) up!

Mommy loves to make feeding time a big deal for me, a grand adventure, if you will. When we first started me on the Pinnacle, Mommy had me close my eyes, and she brought the bowl close. "Pixel, can you guess what's in the Pinnacle Holistic dog food?" As she brought it close, I closed my eyes and inhaled the fragrant aroma... Because it has limited natural ingredients, I could actually smell the individual items. "Chicken. Sweet potatoes picked at their peak. Pumpkin (my favorite!), peas, spinach, garbanzo beans, and sweet potatoes."

"Mommy, I can't take anymore sniffing all this yummy Pinnacle kibble goodness, I must eat it now!!" I just can't resist another bowl of Pinnacle Holistic Pet Food with their top quality ingredients.

Mommy loves the fact that Pinnacle Holistic Pet Food is Grain Free, gluten free, and filled with vegetables. Mommy says I have even more pep in my step since I've been eating it. She thinks it's cute that I actually lay beside the bag (it's a very big bag) when it's left out, like it's a toy or a birthday present to be protected. I obviously love my Pinnacle kibble!

One recent adventure took place just the other day. Mommy brought the big bag of Pinnacle Holistic Chicken and Vegetable Dog Food out to feed me, and the bag tipped over. Little bits of kibble went everywhere in the kitchen. I immediately scrambled into action and helped clean it all up. That's just who I am.

Mommy then went ahead and fed me, albeit a little lighter since I sort of fed myself during clean up. I still felt happy to eat a little out of my bowl.

After I was done though, I sensed something was amiss. I knew that I was needed for something special, that my skills should be used right away. I immediately went to Mommy. "Mommy, they are lost. They need my help!" I said to her with haste, as I put my paw in her hand to show I was serious.
"What is lost? Who?" She asked. "The kibble. We missed a couple of pieces of Pinnacle kibble. I can smell them here in the kitchen. I'm the finder of lost kibble Mommy and we can't let them stay lost!" I replied.
"Of course not." She said, "Go find them and get them right away Pixel!"

I searched the ground carefully, seeking the trail of my lost Pinnacle kibble pieces. It didn't take "the finder of lost kibble" long..."they're under the stove!" I barked with joy.

I used my special kibble extraction technique and got the two tiny kibble morsels out from under the stove so they would no longer be lost and alone. I know they felt better being with their own kind in my belly.

It made me feel good knowing I'd done a good deed.Mommy said I was a good girl, and I'm very proud to still be the master "finder of lost kibble" in this neck of the woods!

Here's What Pinnacle Holistic Food Offers Your Pet:

- Quality ingredients like Quinoa, Sweet Potato, Pumpkin, Sea Kelp, Cottage Cheese

The Joys of Duckie Parenting - Pixel's Duckies Go Joy Riding, Part I

My duckies decided they wanted to go joy riding this past weekend. They all jumped into my red wagon, make Purple Patrick Duckie the "Spokesduckie" and had him pitch the idea to me Saturday morning. They had already packed a huge lunch (you should see how these duckies pack away food!), they mapped out a few prime "Peak of Autumn" sites to see along the way, which included a few choice ponds for swimming, and all they need was my blessing.

I was a bit concerned having a bunch of young duckies going out on their own for a weekend joy ride, but they assured me they'd be fine. Patrick Duckie is an adult, he's a trained covert operative so he can protect them, and he does have his Red Wagon Duckie Driver's license, so at least I know they'd both ride and be safe.

I checked the tires, did a full inspection of the red wagon, gave them a pep talk about quaking to strangers and sent them on their way.

I somehow had a feeling there was a bit more to this than met the duckie eye, but I couldn't quite put my paw on it. I pulled Purple Patrick Duckie aside as everyone assembled on the front porch. I made Pink Minkie Duckie his second in command. In spite of her wise quack ways, she always had a smart head on her shoulders.

As I watched them pull away, I help my heart in my paw (figuratively of course) and prayed all would be okay. I hoped they had a great time, but at the same time, I hoped they would miss me terribly. Is that bad?

By Sunday night, they still weren't home, so I started reading a self-help book called "Raising Wild Duckies: Putting the Calm Back in your Brood" to see if I can reign them in a little bit. I know that "duckies will be duckies"...I mean, I'm the one that taught them how to hide in a Kleenex box and how to play "kitchen towel hideout". But two days of frivolous red wagon riding on these dangerous mountain back roads has me anxious. I finally got a text from Purple Patrick Duckie Monday night. He said they were all "fine" and would be home soon. He said they had a "surprise" for me too.

Do you think there might be an ulterior motive? That they had one this entire time? We ARE talking Purple Patrick Duckie after all. Let me know your thoughts friends.

And don't forget to visit my fellow pet bloggers websites below, and see what they are up to on this Wordless Wednesday, hosted by my friends at BlogPaws.

Pixel's Joy of Hugs, New Paula Deen Dog Food Review & Giveaway

Pixel Blue Eyes, Her Tails of Adventure is not being compensated for this blog post. We were contacted by the company, sent the dog food and asked to do this review.

Pixel's a Southern Dog

I love being a southern dog, I love hugs, and I love good, home cooked food, so imagine my excitement when I was asked to try a new dog food by the quintessential queen of southern home cooking, Miss Paula Deen. I know how much she likes pets so I knew it had to be good, and I jumped at the chance!

Introducing new Paula Deen® Hugs® Premium Select Dog Food. It is specially crafted in 3 scrumptious flavors: Chicken and Rice, Beef and Rice, and Lamb and Rice. Leave it to the queen of good down home cookin' and warm southern hospitality to create a delicious and nutritious gluten free dog food called Hugs! I just want to hug her for it.

Lovely Warm Smiles

It's not widely known, but Paula Deen and I have a lot in common:

1. We both love good food.
2. We both love our family.
3. We both have warm smiles.
4. We both have sparkling blue eyes.
5. We both have great hair.
6. We both have names that start with the letter "P".
7. We're both from the south.
8. We both love to dance! (Be sure to watch and support Paula on Dancing with the Stars on ABC)

Paula Deen loves her pets, and she wanted to create flavorful, nutritious food that dogs would enjoy. The new Hugs Premium Select dog food is made with 100% American raised chicken and beef, has no artificial colors or flavors, and is a fully balanced meal for your dog. The kibble is small and easy to chew for little dogs like me, but large dogs can easily enjoy it too.

When I first heard the Hugs kibble fill my bowl, I couldn't wait to dive in. I always like trying new things. It smells good Mommy!

I went over to my spot in the kitchen where I always eat and gave Mommy my best and most charming southern smile, as she placed the bowl of Hugs Chicken and Rice kibble down for me to try out. Everybody knows chicken and rice is my favorite meal.

My face was in that dish in a flash and I was eating it up faster than you can say "southern fried chicken"! It was delicious! Mommy loved how much I enjoyed it.
