The Joy of Easter - Pixel Celebrates with Her Family & Her Peeps


Hi friends! Just hanging out with my peeps after an amazing weekend of fun. I hope you all had a great time celebrating the joy of Easter with your family and friends, sharing everything that this special day means and enjoying the day with laughter, food and a sense of renewal. We certainly celebrated all weekend long.






We started out the weekend by enjoying all the pretty flowers that are growing in our yard. It was such a pretty day with a blue sky and sunshine all around! I just had to stop and smell the flowers!










 The pear trees are in full bloom too, and looked gorgeous with the sun kissing each bloom. I wished I was a little bird so I could fly up in the tree and sit among the blossoms!











On Sunday morning my sisters and I were surprised with a basket full of Easter toys and goodies. So many new little friends to play with! It was such a fun time that we all had! I can't believe the number if little peeps and cute little squeakie fuzzy friends that showed up at our house. I guess they'll be hanging out with the duckies now.
Dixie, Sassy, Bella, Peanut and I played and played until we were exhausted. It was almost like Christmas!










And speaking of duckies, inside the big basket of toys was a special little friend for me, a round little duckie I'd never seen before. I knew he had to be for me so I gently picked it up immediately. He is very sweet and we became instant friends! He squeaks just like all my other duckies and rides on my back really well too. He is very special because he is made by the company who made all my other favorite duckies. Unfortunately they no longer make that model of duckie. I've been heartbroken for months over this sad, sad news, and Mommy has searched far and wide to find me a similar duckie friend. Well, this little guy is a direct relative of those duckies!! So I am a happy Pixel again. I still have my favorite duckies, they are just getting injured more and more each time I play with them, so I have to be extra careful. Now...I just have to come up with a good name for my new round duckie friend.
Do you have any ideas for a good name for him?

So, how was your Easter friends? Tell me something special about it in a comment.

The Joy of Change: Pixel's Pink Ribbons & Merrick's #BestDogEver Recipe Refresh

This post is sponsored by Merrick Pet Care and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated for helping create awareness around the Merrick Classic Refresh, however we only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Merrick Pet Care is not responsible for the content of this article.

Sometimes it's good to make a change for the better or go for a more natural approach. I've been doing that as of late with my hair in letting it grow out long and natural, and by wearing a classic style with pretty, pink ribbons. Mommy loves my new longer natural hair style. It makes me feel  pretty and attractive. She'll shower me with kisses and tell me I'm the "best dog ever". Of course she's told me that my whole life! 




My friends at Merrick Pet Care believe in a more natural approach as well, when it comes to their Classic line of Dog Food and natural nutrition, and they've just done a fantastic recipe refresh for 2016 that you are going to love! Merrick Classic has long provided dogs with best-in-class natural nutrition from a wholesome balance of protein, wholesome grains and fruits and vegetables. Merrick Classic recipes now have been improved to offer an even more palatable and easily digestible mealtime experience for your "Best Dog Ever". 

These 5 new and improved recipes start with real de-boned meat as the very first ingredient to provide leading levels of high quality protein. It's then followed up by whole grains like Brown Rice, Barley and Oats, and fresh fruits and vegetables including blueberries, apples, sweet potatoes, peas, and carrots. The Merrick Classic Dog Food line also contains no soy, wheat or corn, which are common allergy triggers. 


I wanted to really get "up close and personal" with this new recipe as I learned all about the yummy new enhancements they've made. It sure smells good! The Merrick Recipe refresh comes with new ingredients such as ancient grains like Quinoa and Chia seeds, which adds fiber, protein and Omega-3 to your dog's diet. They removed potatoes from some of the recipes, and have introduced smaller bite-size kibble pieces for very small breed dogs. There's also NO ingredients from China and it is proudly MADE IN THE USA! 

I'm also happy to share that these five new Recipes offer pet parents the same Wholesome Natural Nutrition that Merrick stands for at a new attractive price. And speaking of attractive, just like I have a new look, well so does Merrick's Classic line Dog Food bag. Just looking at the front of it, with all those images of food on it, makes me want to start eating the bag itself!


Every dog is unique, has different tastes and different needs. Merrick considered all that when updating their recipes. Merrick has varieties available based on protein needs, life-stages, and breed size. You wouldn't give big breed dog food to a little dog, now would you? Of course not. Merrick's Small Breed Recipe for Adult Dogs is made especially for small dogs like me. 






In fact, the kibble is so small and bite size, you could feed it to a 5 lb dog and they would easily be able to chew it without it being too big for them. See? My friends at Merrick have pretty much thought of everything. Let me tell you, it's also incredibly delicious!! And Merrick is a brand that I truly trust. My family has trusted them for years and you can too. Doesn't your 'best dog ever' deserve the very best?

The Joy of the Coming of Spring - Pixel's First Spring Poem

It has turned to be a tough winter for a lot of people across the U.S. and abroad. Many tough snow storms have wreaked havoc on many locations. However, spring in in the air and on our minds now that it is March, so I wrote a short poem to get us in the mood. 

Smiling Pixel Blue Eyes with Pink Flower Ribbons in her Hair
Snow is on the ground, but I will not wear a frown. 
Joy is in my heart so I'll let that light a spark. 
I can handle any storm, I can deal with any weather, 
As long as I have you, we can go through it together. 
Spring is in the air, I see smiles everywhere, 
I think that I shall grow pretty flowers in my hair.

I hope your day is filled with sunshine and flowers, whether outside or in your heart friends. And remember to always wear a smile. It makes you feel good inside and out and you just don't know how it will make someone else feel good too!

I'd love to know if any of my friends are experiencing some spring like weather, so let me know in a comment.
