Hummingbird Food Recipe Sponsored by Perky Pet Feeders

Hummingbird Feeder & Hummingbird Food RecipeIf you were able to catch my review of the Squirrel Proof Feeder, then you already know all about why I love watching the birds.  So many wonderful memories of sitting on my Granny’s lap and watching them come and eat, play and even nest!  I love thinking about those times and seeing the birds come to my feeders brings a smile to my heart every time.  Though cardinals were my Granny’s favorite, on occasion we had a hummingbird or two visit.  Hummingbirds were special because they didn’t come often and they brought new colors to her front yard.  Her house was way out in the country so there were no other feeders close to bring more.

Not too long ago, I purchased a recipe box at an estate sale.  It was packed full of recipes and a beautiful vintage box circa 1960’s I think.  It was filled with magazine recipe cutouts, recipe cards from a bank that no longer exists in our area and (my favorite) handwritten recipes.  One of those handwritten recipes was one for Hummingbird food.  So, when I received the Perky-Pet Red Hobnail Vintage Hummingbird feeder I was understandably stoked for so many reasons!  Of course, I had to share it all with you!

Milo’s Kitchen & Mobile Treat Truck

Milos.KitchenSo let’s face it: we all love treats, young and old, animal or human.  A treat every now and then just makes us a little happier.  With 2 older Chihuahuas (ages 12 and 13) and a great dane with allergies, I’m a little picky about what treats I will provide for them.  It’s impossible to have a treat that one can’t eat, as the one who isn’t supposed to have them always manages to get them regardless of my intentions.  Sometimes I think they scheme.  Actually, I’m always convinced they scheme.   

MiloBoxI had the opportunity to let my furbabies try Milo’s Kitchen home style treats.  They tried Chicken and Steak Grillers and Grilled Burger Bites.  While they enjoyed each without bias and came back begging for more, I tried to find the differences.  They each look like people food, just miniature versions.  I thought they were cute.  However, each treat smelled the exact same.  Odd how that works out huh?  Each package has a different ingredient list, so I don’t quite understand how that happened.  Regardless, they were well received and enjoyed.  I especially love that

MilkBone Brushing Chews Review

IMG_5449Every morning I get up and brush my teeth.  It’s the most important thing I do, yet I very rarely think to brush the teeth of my dogs.  At one time, I was under the misconception that dogs didn’t need their teeth brushed.  They probably wouldn’t if they were in the wild doing what untamed dogs do.  However, given that my dogs have never made their own kill much less enjoyed fresh bones their dental hygiene is up to me.  A while back I did a tutorial about how to brush their teeth, feel free to check it out here.  If nothing else, I can assure you that you will be amused by the pics.  Don’t worry, my babies are dramatic but no one was actually tortured.  I underestimated them when I thought it wouldn’t come out in pictures!  LOL

IMG_5454Anyway, if you don’t have time to brush their teeth or would just like to have another teeth cleaning addition to their regimen, this one is much easier.  Milk Bone has come out with Brushing Chews.  Even my picky Lucy Lou Lou loves them.  If she doesn’t like something, she will put it down (or refuse to take it) then stare at you like you are horrible for not having something she liked.  LOL.  I don’t know where she got this habit, but it amuses me to no end.  In case you are wondering, not having a replacement treat that she deems acceptable means that she sulks for a few hours.  She is a mix between diva and brat.  Of course, maybe they are one in the same.  Before I give you the company’s product description and such, let me inform you that Lucy’s breathe could kill off flies.  It’s terrible, I think it is a small dog thing, not real certain.  I have found that the Brushing Chews really help her breathe, which pleases me!  Now I can occasionally get kisses that aren’t presented with a horrid smell!

IMG_5456According to the Veterinary Oral Health Council, giving your dog Milk Bone Brushing Chews daily is as effective as brushing a dog’s teeth twice a week based on the reduction of tarter build-up.  They recommend daily tooth brushing for optimal effectiveness.




Here are the Brushing Chews specs from Milk Bone:

  • They feature a specially designed 75 degree twist that helps the brushing nubs reach down to the gum line, even cleaning hard-to-reach back teeth.
  • They are clinically proven to reduce tartar build-up as well as freshen your dog’s breath
  • They are so effective that they have earned the trusted Veterinary Oral Health Council’s (VOHC) Seal of Acceptance, similar to the American Dental Association seal seen on human dental products.
