Welcome to our little collection of goodies. I often get asked where we got something our fans have seen in pictures. All of these things are regulars around our house. Most are Chester and Gretel’s favorites but I included a few of my own.

Gretel LOVES this teddy Bear. All we have to say is “where is your bear?” and she goes nuts. I love it because a Velcro pouch opens up to let you replace the squeaker once it has been killed. A free replaceable squeaker comes with each toy and extras can be bought in packs.
There is something special about soft latex toys. Chester and Gretel are absolutely obsessed. For some reason, they don’t often destroy the squeakiest made of soft rubber. These toys are similar to the ones that are a favorite of Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund.
This treat toy is Gretel’s staple. She has had one since she was young. This one thing alone calmed her separation anxiety and allowed us to crate train her. She loves it so much that when we come home and let her out to potty she often grabs this and takes it with her. They also get lost outside, and under the couch, so we have had to replace them over the years but how could we not?
Chester and Gretel love everything Vital Essentials (VE). VE products are based on the whole-prey model of whole feeding and contain only meat, organs, and bone (and a bit of fish oil or supplements, depending on the product).
There are other treats out there that look the same, but aren’t the same… at least in Chester and Gretel’s eyes. They love to eat all food stuffs but they go just a little extra nutty for Zuke’s. There are other flavors available but they like peanut butter best… or maybe it’s the chicken…Hmmm….
Comforts of Home
This bed is great to snuggle in. Chester and Gretel will trick each other to get out of the bed so the other can get in (they don’t like to snuggle). This is the pattern that we have in our livin groom but they also come in other decorative patterns. The microfiber cover is durable and water resistant so it’s easy to clean.
Everything about this bowl is amazing! It’s beautiful. It’s made by hand and of 100% recycled glass. It’s super durable (yes, even though it is glass). PawNosh bowls are exceedingly durable, sturdy, weigh over 3 pounds, and come with a lifetime warranty against breakage. The original “Cubby bowl” is medium sized and designed for 1-2 cats or 1 small dog up to 25 pounds. For dogs larger than 25 pounds, please see the larger “Cubby Deluxe” bowl on Amazon.
Dog Mom Stuff
I used to have a dog-walking purse and regular purse. I would take the dog walking purse when I needed to carry treats, a water bottle, poop bags (including full ones), etc. I got tired of switching my stuff back and forth so I got this one that was in between the two size and feature wise. I love it. You can wear it as cross-body bag or reconfigure the strap into a little backpack.
I am on my 4th pair of these shoes. It’s not because they wear out easily but because I wear them almost every day. They are quick to slip on for a dog walk or errands, comfortable, and cute. I have medium to high arches and they cradle my feet just right.
