Happy Easter! Celebrating the Joy of the Rising Son and Sun

Happy Easter my dear friends! Today we were blessed with the most perfect of mornings. The sun shined so brilliantly through the window as I donned one of my new spring dresses to celebrate Easter in style. The bright rising sun reminded of the reason we celebrate Easter, to remember the rising Son who sacrificed Himself and gave us all everlasting life.







Yes, I believe God saved not only all the humans, but the little dogs, and all the animals too. Indeed, when we all get to heaven, you will so all the animals there too. God loves the animals, he created us all, one at a time, and even during the great flood, God saved thousands of animals with only 7 humans aboard the ark with them. I am not trying to be preachy, I just wanted to share that God loves the animals, and I see proof of it all the time.



So this Easter, and every day, I hope that each of us will think of what is truly important and be grateful for the love and sacrifice that was made for us. Enjoy the sunshine in your day and your life friends. May we each find the joy that is around us.

The Joy of Healthy Weight & Healthy Relationships - #HillsPet Metabolic Weight Loss

I love snacking! I think any excuse is a good excuse for a little snack. I even patrol the dining room table area at times in case a magical snack appears for me to delve into. That's just how I roll. But, if Mommy gave into my requests for snacks every time I asked, begged or gave her the sad eyes for one, I know I'd weigh more than I should. Whether you are a animal or a human, carrying around a lot of extra weight can take it's toll on your everyday life. Pets especially have a hard time when they are overweight. It can really weigh a pet down, no pun intended, because one pound on us can be like 10-20 pounds on a human. Think about it...if a dog's ideal weight was 10 pounds, but they actually weighed 12 pounds, that would be the same as a 100 lb person carrying around an extra 20 pounds. That is a lot of extra weight that is putting pressure on a pet's joints, heart, and other important organs. In many cases, a pet's quality of life and relationship with their family can be impacted because that extra weight can reduce play time, impact mobility and affect the lifelong general health of your dog or cat.
My friends at Hill's have created a fantastic and delicious new line of prescription pet food & treats that helps combat additional weight in dogs and cats. Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution pet food actually helps an overweight animal's metabolism change to act more like that of a lean animal. And even after weight loss is achieved with this new Metabolic pet food, the highly efficient change in metabolism is maintained.



Just talking about all this wonderful food makes me hungry, especially since they have dry dog food, wet dog food AND treats. I could talk about the benefits of Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution pet food all day long, but why don't I share a very important video about Bear, a handsome German Shepherd dog whose life was changed by Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution dog food. While you watch it, think about your own pets....could they benefit from this new food?



As the gentleman in the video said, he got his friend back again. Being at a healthier weight enabled Bear to play more, interact more and enjoy life a whole lot more. That's what we want for all our loved ones, don't we? Gracie is another fantastic success story. She is one of the 88% of pets that lost weight in a healthy way by eating Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution for dogs. Just look at these before and after photos of Gracie! Her weight loss diet for dogs didn't feel like a diet at all to her. She had wet and dry food, as well as yummy treats. Go Gracie!!


Remember, Hill's Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution dog and cat food works fast, with many getting to an ideal weight in just 60 days. With an 88% success rate, it's well worth a try! Diet and exercise go hand in paw to help keep us at a healthy weight too. Walking is one of the very best exercises in my humble opinion, and I LOVE to go for walks! Of course I love to run too. PetMD shares 10 simple ways to help your pet get to an ideal weight, which will help make them feel like a puppy again, full of energy and playfulness.


The relationship that pets share with their pet parents is so important, so always stay active with them. We long to be with you, and we need that playful interaction with you. We also need for you to be wise in how and what we eat. We depend on you. Being at a healthy weight will help us pets be able to keep that relationship fresh and new, and will help us stay active longer.




But don't just take my word for it...you can read some reviews about Hill's Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution on their Facebook page. Just enter the term "Metabolic" to read reviews specific to this new food.

Pixel's Professional Survivalist Series: Function Meets Fashion - Being Prepared is Always in Style

Pixel Blue Eyes here, taking another break from my hard core survivalist training to bring you new information that will help you become as good a survivalist as I am. I'm currently reporting from my hidden survivalist bunker. I can't tell you exactly where it is, as that is part of my survival, but I CAN tell you that I am still on the East Coast...oh no, I've said too much already. Anyways...





I take my training and what being a "survivalist" means very seriously. As a professional survivalist, I am constantly mastering new ways to better survive in case a tragic cat-astrophy, Army-gettin' or a dreaded Walking Fred attack occurs. Even if something as simple as a Tiger-Werewolf-Monkey escapes from wherever Tiger-Werewolf-Monkeys come from and invades my yard or home, I must be in tip top form to thwart those attacks.




I've mastered my evasive maneuvers, become quite skilled at being a ninja, am adept at "blending in" with the Walking Freds (always keep Strawberry Jam handy), and even figured out how to trade peacefully with other survivalists. I can use tools, I have LOTS of camouflage items, I know how to seek out edible (and not so edible) plants, and I know how to store (as well as wear) pumpkin and strawberry jam like no one else.



But through all of this, there is one very important aspect of being a survivalist that must not be missed. That is the concept of looking good while you survive! Yes, it's often put by the wayside, but I am here to tell you today that function and fashion go hand in hand. Having to survive a "Walking Fred" attack can be detrimental to your self esteem as you deal with everything involved in your survival. But, if you look good while you evade detection, why that just makes you feel a bit better about things.

For example, my camo hat is great for blending into the surrounding trees, shrubs and ground, but it also looks very nice on my head. And my camo shirt is highly functional at hiding me in plain sight when there's snow on the ground, however the nice pink collar really brings out my natural coloring. I feel pretty while I blend in!






So, as you prepare for your own survivalist training, remember these few Pixel Survivalist Training ideas for today:
1. Function and Fashion really can go hand in hand. Buy things that are both helpful and look good.
2. Good self-esteem might help you think more clearly when deciding how to make your escape.
3. Being prepared is ALWAYS in style!

The Joy of Spring Snow in the Mountains - Pixel's Wordless Wednesday

Although the first day of Spring arrived a few days ago, we always have at least one or two nice snowfalls after the first robin heralding Spring appears in our yard. This morning was a sweet treat in that the early birds brought a beautiful blanket of snow with them! 4 inches of light, fluffy white snow crystals sparkled on the ground and our house.  I had a wonderful time playing outside on the back deck in in the snow today. It was a beautiful winter wonderland of fun!


Snow on my chin? What do you mean?
Throw me a snowball Mommy, I'll catch it!

In coming...

I'll go get that snowball...I think it went over here.

Isn't all this snow pretty Mommy?

I sure do love the snow...not only is it pretty, but it tastes real good too!

Of course I have to taste the snow Mommy...I'm a snow eating connoisseur of sorts. And I'm pretty sure this snow is super fresh. I can tell it was just made.

Some people get a milk mustache, well I prefer a snow mustache...AND beard, BOL!!

Happy Wordless Wednesday friends! Visit some of the pet blogs below to see what they have been up to on this fine day.

Walking Fred Friday - Pixel's Top 5 Uses of Strawberry Jam

With all I've learned about the Walking Freds (my reference to the zombies in "The Walking Dead" TV show) and their intense propensity to like Strawberry Jam, I have taught Mommy to always buy extra when she goes to the store. Not only will it help you blend in, in case of a Walking Fred Cat-astrophy, it also can keep you alive in case your blood sugar gets low while trying to thwart their attacks.
Pixel talks about the importance of strawberry jam against Walking Fred attacks

Here are  five good uses for Strawberry Jam when it comes to being a survivalist and dealing with Walking Freds:
1. As a survivalist who must live off the land if a Walking Fred attack happens, I've mastered the art of eating semi-edible bare roots and berries I find in the wilderness. Use strawberry jam to dip the bare root items in that I must consume to survive. The roots tend to be bitter, so the jam makes them more tolerable for eating.
2. Put gobs of it on your face and body if a Walking Fred is nearby...they might just think you're "one of them" and leave you alone.
3. Strawberry jam is a great bartering item when you come across other survivalists. They're probably tired of eating bare roots too, so you might be able to trade it for something cool that they have.
4. I hear that bears like honey. Honey is sticky and sweet...strawberry jam is sticky and sweet. If you run into an angry bear, offer him your strawberry jam. He'll leave happy!
5. If you have a big enough jar of strawberry jam in the wilderness and a Walking Fred comes at you, and you didn't have time to spread it on your body, chuck the entire jar at him, aiming for his eyes. The impact itself might render him blind and you can then make your escape!

So, go out, buy your own Strawberry Jam....it could save your life!
Pixel stocks up and says that strawberry jam might just save your life one day


I'd LOVE to hear how you might use Strawberry Jam to survive either a 'Walking Fred' attack or just to survive in the wilderness alone. Please leave me a comment below with your survivalist tip and I'll see if I can use it in my next Walking Fred series post!
