“Hey there, hi there, ho there!” Limited Edition #Disney dog toys are at #PetSmart!

Hi everybody! It’s Dakota! I don’t know who is more excited,  Mom or ME with the adorable line of Disney toys made by

ToyShoppe® for PetSmart! They are in the line called Disney Mickey Mouse & Friends.

You see, Mom has been fixated with all things Mickey Mouse since she was a little girl. She had Mouse Ears, a Mickey Mouse watch, she was a huge fan of the Mouseketeers !!! Mom’s Dad was an artist and he often used to draw Mom pictures of Mickey Mouse!  Mom loved it!

When Mom heard that there were limited edition Disney toys available at PetSmart she was all over it! The kind people at PetSmart sent me two of the cutest toys you have ever seen!

There they are on the coffee table looking all cuddly and adorable! Could someone please tell her these toys are NOT for her? They are for me!!!

They are SUPER SOFT AND CUDDLY and each toy even has a SQUEAKER inside! They are some of the cutest dog toys Mom and I have ever seen! Mom keeps saying something about taking them away from me and keeping them in her “office.” I don’t think so!! They are MINE!

Mom Mischief!

Hi my furry pals!

It seems as if it has been furever since I have barked at you! I haven’t been on the computer much because last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday Mom was at Nestle Purina for the “Meet Purina Pet Blogger Summit.” Mom had an outstanding time, but the trip to Purina is where some of Mom’s mischief began.

If you read my blog back in August, Mom had mentioned how she was supposed to attend the premier of the new Disney movie Frankenweenie…..(the operative words here are was supposed to attend.)  and post her review TODAY. It was MOM who was the “weenie” on this one! Mom had a ton of blogs to pre-schedule before her trip to Purina and couldn’t make the premier, so because of Mom’s MAJOR MISCHIEF I’m not gonna let Mom blog about a movie that she didn’t see!  We will tell you that the movie opened on October 5th so YOU can see it, and if you want to see the trailer that Mom had posted on my blog, you can click here.

Now, on to Part II of Mom’s Mischief! Mom went to Purina as one of their CAT BLOGGERS, (because of Cody!) not as a DOG BLOGGER, (they didn’t even know that I exist! What’s up with THAT??!!) So, where is she posting her first blog post about Purina? HERE. The woman has serious issues!

In an attempt to salvage Mom’s already shaky credibility,  Mom wanted to share with you a super fun and interesting event that she attended while visiting Purina.  The event was LUNCH if you know Mom, writing about food should come as no surprise, but I digress.

The lunch that Mom was raving about took place at the Purina Culinary Center, (Pet-inspired Chefs for Chef-inspired Pet Food)

Lunch was prepared by Chef Amanda Hassner who has one goal when she comes to work at the Purina Culinary Center every day and that is “to inspire people who create pet food so that they can enrich the lives of pets and the people who love them. She combines her passion for pets with her culinary expertise, and her creations in the Culinary Center have influenced many of Purina’s products.”

Mom and her blogging buddies were served a sumptuous sampling of dishes that were made for human consumption but were the inspiration of actual Purina products that are on the market today!

One of the dishes that Mom was served was Amuse Bouche.   What  are Amuse Bouche? Glad you asked! From Wikipedia: “Amuse-bouches are different from appetizers in that they are not ordered from a menu by patrons, but, when served, are done so for free and according to the chef’s selection alone.”

One of the  Amuse Bouche that Mom tasted was the inspiration for Beneful® brand Baked Delights™ specifically the Savory Bacon Shortbread.

Mom received a sample bag of these to take home and you can see my reaction!

You guys should check these out, they are delicious! They made up for the mischief that Mom caused!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota

Disclosure: Mom’s trip was completely paid for by Purina. Mom was not required to blog about the trip but is going to do a few blog posts about it here and on Cat Chat. All opinions are mine AND Mom’s!

Disney Presents: FRANKENWEENIE, A film by Tim Burton, IN THEATRES OCTOBER 5th!

I know, I know, it’s only August, but before you know it October will be at our door!! Mom and I were excited when we were contacted by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. They wanted to tell us about their new film FRANKENWEENIE A Film By TIM BURTON of  (Alice in Wonderland, The Nightmare Before Christmas) fame! They asked if we would tell you about this film and we are happy to oblige.

The movie is about Tim Burton’s OWN relationship with his childhood dog, (Sparky).

It is a heart-warming tale, which was filmed in all black & white  (that in itself is pretty cool!)  and it is animated. FRANKENWEENIE (yep, keep FRANKENSTEIN in your mind!) Follows “Victor” (Tim Burton as a child), and how he dealt with the unexpected loss of his beloved dog Sparky and how he tried to bring him back to life. Get ready for some “unintended, monstrous consequences!!!”

Check out the trailer below:


Mom is also going to be attending an advanced screening in our area and when she goes we will be sure to tell you all about it!! I sure wish that I could go!

Barks and licks and Walt Disney love,

Dakota

 

We were not compensated for this post. However,  the advanced screening will be free. Mom is greatly looking forward to it!
