Product Review: Lumabone

Dog
"Lumabone - Ride the Bacon!"
(C) Allen Pearson Photography

I am barking and pawing a product review for Lumabone is this post! Paws, I was not compensated, given human money which I have no use for, given any delectable treats to pawsuade my opinion. I was given a few products from Lumabone to review!

WOOF! WOOF! I love these Lumabones! My human has been wanting to find a chew treat or toy which would keep me somewhat busy while he is working on writing or photography for a client. Barkingly, I like to curl up near him to make sure he is doing what he's supposed to do. BARKS!

"Noah and Lumabone Package"
(C) Allen Pearson Photography
When I was contacted to review this product, "Lumabone," I was pawsomely excited. Finally, the box came and I couldn't help my paws from digging into it! WOOF1 My box was filled with these pawsome treats which are designed to help with my dental care.

Dental care? Yes, my dental care! Since I do not allow my human to brush my teeth, he likes to use products which will assist with doing it! WOOF! BARKS!

WOOF! The Lumabones taste like bacon too!
BACON!? WOOF! Oh, my barks - will do almost anything for bacon! And more bacon. Delicious! Barks!

I have Lumabones in my human's office and in the car we use to go exploring the universe! This way, I will always have something to chew on when my human is pre-occupied! WOOF!

The Lumabone treats are available in different sizes. To learn more about the roduct, visit Lumabone! Barkingly, as with all products for your bestest buddy, read through the safety guidelines to make certain they can be used by your dog! Lumabone stresses safety when using the product. 

Lumabones are available for purchase at Walmart and Target.

WOOF! Allergy Warning: Lumabones are made in a facility that processes nuts, including peanuts, as well as other flavors. So they may cause an allergic reaction in humans or animal that are allergic to peanuts, pork, poultry, mint or nylon.

National Thank a Mail Carrier Day!

"Delivering the Mail!"
(C) Allen Pearson Photography

THANK YOU MAIL CARRIERS!

WOOF! Every day I hear her truck coming up the hill. She makes two stops then I'm next! I see her stop at the mailbox and sometimes she has to get out and bring packages to the front door! BARK! BARK! MEOW, I do too! I look and watch out the front window!

Every once in a while my human and I will see her delivering the mail to other humans and she will make a quick stop to say "Hi!" and pet me for a second- then she's on her merry way to do assigned chores.

Paws, did you know the Second Continental Congress established the Constitutional Post, which was the first organized mail service in America, in 1775? The nation's first Postmaster General was Benjamin Franklin who established many of the protocols we have come to know today. The first postage stamp was invented in 1847! WOOFS!  The Pony Express began in 1860 with free city delivery in 1863 and rural free delivery in 1896. MEOWS, Got zip code? The zip code began in 1963!

Today, I bark a huge THANK YOU to the mail carriers and especially a barkingly grand and loud WOOF! to our pawsome mail carrier who makes sure we receive our packages, letters, and yes, our bills! A pawsome job they do every day!

MEOW! Happy Friday! I don't know about you but I wish this super frigid ridiculously freezing weather would warm up a bit. It's been too cold for my dog brother Noah or my human to spend much time outside and they are getting beyond the point of annoying! HISS! Noah and Dad need a good walk for a few miles so I can get so peace and quiet! Paws, however, it does make my human mom more fun to snuggle with.... do you have a cat to snuggle with? They are the bestest you know! My pawsome friend "Miss Kim" from Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART) brought by a handsome cat for you to meet!

Fergus isn't much for sitting on human's laps but he does enjoy hanging out and stting near them for pawssible scratches! He likes to perch on high places and watch his humans too. Fergus will allow you to pick him up gently but only hold him for a minute.

Fergus's foster parents call him a "cool guy" but he does get stressed in overwhelming situations. He prefers a calm and quiet family with another calm pet, cat or dog, is good. He would be fine as your one-and-only-cat-that-is!
