Pet Blog Love! Pawsitively Pets

We wanted to try something new this year and we stumbled across this fun idea and event-The Pet Blogger Gift Exchange is hosted by Something Wagging This Way Comes and I Still Want More Puppies For the Pet Blogger Gift Exchange, Bloggers are randomly paired with another Blog to get to know one another and give some social media love to each other. This is a great way to make some new friends and give back to other Bloggers too.

We were paired with Pawsitively Pets and we wanted to take our time to thoroughly explore our new friend's Blog and social media.

The Blog's author is Ann, and she is the stay-at home mom of two beautiful little girls in addition to all of her animal kids. Ann has had lots of experience with a myriad of animals in her previous years as a Veterinary Technician. She began her Blog in October 2012 and has had it now for a little over a year (they celebrated their Blogiversary here).

We were thrilled to be paired with a Blog that features such an array of animalia!
There is a dog, a rat, and even a couple of goldfish!

Let us tell you a bit about each of these animals.

The dog's name is Shiner. She's a 10 year old (same age as Bella!) Pit Bull. We were fascinated to find out that Shiner has crinkly ears which result from ear hematoma-check out Pawsitively Pets awesome Blog Post about it.

Nibblet is a cute little rat (she reminds mom of her middle school teacher's friendly rat who got to come out and play after the lectures).

The two goldfish are Dorito and Lucy-what fun names! We'd love to see more of these little ones.

Check out this cute video of Nibblet and Shiner from their YouTube
We also discovered that the Blog is not only about the wonderful animals mentioned above. Pawsitively Pets also has fun posts about Ancient Dog Breeds, how to tell if your dog is in pain, and bringing balance to yours and your dog's lives among many more intriguing topics. Poke around a bit-we're sure you'll find a fun article that will leave you searching around for more!
Nibblet seems like quite the cuddle bug! We really enjoy seeing a rat who is included and part of the family. This picture is from their Instagram

Thanksgiving Fun with Family

We had such a great weekend!
We went to our Grandma's house and hung out with our canine cousins, human cousins, and aunties. Mom has five siblings, and we have ten cousins (3 canine and 7 human). Sadly, our uncle couldn't make this get-together, but hopefully he'll make the next one.
We really enjoyed playing with mom's nephews. Bella represented for most of the day, and then Terra and Kronos got to come for awhile during the evening.

There was a pine cone war, hide and seek, chocolate chip cookies, and lots of running around.

Bella got to see some Alpacas! They were super interested in her BOL

Then we went to one of our aunt's house, and spent a couple of nights there. We played games and watched movies and caught up since we haven't seen each other in a few months.

Kronos discovered a trampoline!
Mom went up there to jump with her nephews and he thought it looked so fun that he hopped right up by himself! At first he was unsure of the moving ground, but then he decided it was a blast!
And then he thought it was hilarious to keep jumping up and jump off (because mom put him off each time, so he eventually jumped up and then jumped right off when mom went to take him off-all the while with a huge smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye) and he even bounced a bit with everyone =) As you can tell by his face here, he thought it was the bee's knees and he liked using his jumping legs! The boys thought it was rather entertaining too. We will get footage next time =)

Bella and Terra were busy exploring the yard and didn't really care about the trampoline, but they had fun playing too.

Cuddling with mom-she loves when we all cuddle together

Mom is so proud of us and we all had a great time. Kronos gained lots of confidence, and he got to be around dog savvy people so he opened up so much. Kids are great to be around because they are so noisy, but, more importantly, they are fun and playful!

There were 6 dogs (including us), and 8 people who hung out. Terra and Kronos played with Lucky, and Bella even played with Kaine a bit! Everyone was so happy to see each other and we are looking forward to our next get together.

This is what seven young human cousins equals-a happily exhausted pup!

Then we ate Honest Kitchen Force as a belated Thanksgiving feast and it was so yummy! Honest Kitchen has great food and treats, and we are trying Terra on it to see how she does. We think Terra has food allergies, and have been trying so many different foods! We're excited to see how she does on this one. We'll let you know in a couple of weeks.

We hope you had a fabulous and yummy Thanksgiving. We're going to help mom make banana bread, sweet potato treats, and frozen banana treats and help her clean and work today so we'll check in later.

Wags and kisses,
Bella, Terra, & Kronos
