We Want That! (Wednesday)

What do we want this week? Motivation!

I recently sat down and looked at my summer to-do list. RSVP to this, buy gifts for that, send back the textbook I rented, sell the ones I bought, dye my hair cotton candy pink (oh Hell yes!), and get my scuba certification. Too bad those last two will cost a pretty penny. And the scuba thing isn’t purely for fun, I actually need it to apply for the next Disney internship I’m working towards. I haven’t even started the College Program yet and I’m already planning the next one.

Oh and finding a cell phone plan that lets me get affordable internet (does that even exist?!), updating the blog, packing to move in just over 2 weeks, securing my summer volunteer positions….

And keeping Brody in my thoughts as he goes through his heartworm treatment.

So what else do we want? A break! Not from work, because I need the money. How convenient, because I’m getting more hours than I planned…


So my sanity break consisted of testing a new treat on Lana. I bought the Nylabone puppy pack which included one toy and one treat. They looked the same, and a bachelor’s degree in English does NOT mean I actually read things. I had assumed first of all that they were for dogs of all ages, and secondly that they were both treats and I could therefore give one to Brody. Boy did I get a nasty surprise when I bit into the first one.


Yes, you read that correctly. I don’t believe when they say toys/treats are “flavored” like things. They almost never taste anything like it, but I think companies believe nobody’s stupid enough to try it and call them out on it. I love proving people wrong.


Okay, the chicken one tasted like nothing. And the bacon one didn’t taste like bacon but at least it tasted like something. I wasn’t surprised that was the one Lana chose. Apparently that was also the edible one. She ate like two thirds of it in a minute. But, it’s not like she sticks her nose up at the ones that are made for chewing rather than eating. She just goes for food first. She takes after me.


This dog does not understand the concept of savoring. Then again, does any dog?


While the treat may have gone a little too fast, this is probably the fifth chew toy I’ve gotten for Lana from the Nylabone company and I’m always impressed. They last such a long time, they come in a variety of sizes and flavors, and they help clean dogs’ teeth! Not to mention I’m pretty sure the company is good to the environment and whatnot. Yay!

Anyway, it’s well worth the money! If you are looking for something for your heavy chewer, go see if Nylabone has something for you!
