This was something that was written a while ago when Diesel was still with us. I had been going back and forth about changing it and taking Deisel out. But he was here when I wrote it and only died a few months later. I have decided to keep him because he was part of my family.

I’ve included links to Amazon in case you want to get any of this stuff for your doggies. They are affiliate links and I earn a bit of cash if you choose to buy through these links. Also, in the interest of total disclosure, the review is not of Amazon. These items were originally sent to me as part of a subscription service that I paid for. The company has since went under and I lost a bit of money as I had paid for the year in advance. But rather than leave the name of the company in, I’ve changed it to Amazon because you can get most of the items on there. Thanks for understanding. Happy reading and shopping.

Hello humans! We are Buffy the Black Lab, Krypto the Husky, and Diesel the Staffie, a merry band of doggy’s that live with our human, Lindsay. Every day little parcels arrive at our home from the evil postman (GRRRR!) but one day he showed up with a box for us from Amazon Pets.

Happy Pet Balloon Animal


Buffy: He was so cute! I just wanted to carry him about and lick him, but then the boys were mean!

Krypto: Hey! You started it! You ran around with it in your mouth and were hogging him, I wanted to have a go!

Diesel: You young whipper snappers didn’t deserve that toy. I enjoyed it more.

Krypto: You ate him!

Diesel: Yeah. And I enjoyed it. Could have done with some gravy though, it was a bit dry.


Gor Pets TNT Stick

Gor TNT Stick, Small

Buffy: I liked this one too. It was tough and cleaned my teeth.

Krypto: I liked it too. Not even Diesel managed to destroy it. Where is it?

Diesel: I buried it until I can get round to chewing it more.

Buffy: HA! Even you can’t destroy it! I wonder if mummy will get us more of those?

Krypto: I don’t know, ask her for more.

Diesel: Can either of you speak human? No. I’ll have to drop it in her bed so that she knows we like it.


Pooch & Mutt Fresh Breath Dog Treats

Pooch And Mutt Fresh Breath Treats for Dogs

Krypto: I enjoyed these. The human said they smelt minty.

Buffy: Yeah they smelt minty but I dug up and ate the mint plants in the garden. None of them tasted like the biscuits.

Diesel: She said they are for me so I don’t know why you went to all that trouble of digging up the plants to compare them.

Buffy: But it was fun……

Krypto: The human did not look impressed with your garden work.

Buffy: She’s called mummy and she said if I wanted minty goodness to stick with the biscuits because they were better for me.

Diesel: She said my breath smelt better so they do as the packet says….

Krypto: You can’t read…. 

Tribal Daily Dog Treats

Tribal Natural Health Beef and Tomato, 130 g, Pack of 6

Buffy: I liked these too. Mummy said they had no artificial additives so they were good for us.

Krypto: I liked the smell of them. Chicken and tomato. The human tried them and said they tasted like human biscuits.

Diesel: Why did she try them?!

Krypto: She said they had human grade ingredients in them.


Snuffle Chicken Dog Beer

Snuffle Dog Beer Snuffle Dog Beer Chicken Flavour 4-pack

Buffy: There was beer? I didn’t get any beer.

Krypto: I didn’t get any either, did they forget to send it?

Diesel: *hic* Must have forgotten to send it *hic*

Buffy: I smell chicken on his breath….

Krypto: Did you drink it all yourself?

Diesel: *hic* Maybe *hic* Alright! You got me! I took it out to the garden and had it all myself *hic* It was lovely.


Kong Sports Ball

KONG Sport Balls Dog Toy, Medium (3-pack)

Buffy: We got a ball! We got a ball!

Krypto: Why are you so excited about this ball? It’s just a ball.

Buffy: It’s a Kong ball! Kong toys are extra tough so I won’t pop it when I play fetch with mummy.

Diesel: She’s right. Even I couldn’t wreck this one. It has thick rubber walls so even my jaws can’t pop it.


Oggi’s Oven Dog Biscuit Baking Mix

Oggi’s Oven Dog Biscuit Baking Mix

Diesel: Mmmm……fresh oven baked biscuits!

Buffy: I like mummy’s baking but she never shares.

Krypto: This packet makes biscuits for dogs, so they are safe for us to eat.

Buffy: I like these. But I’m not sure if you were supposed to lick the bowl afterwards Krippie.

Krypto: I can reach the bench so I’ll lick the bowl if I want.


Happy Pet Rubber Bone


Buffy: I like this bone. It was extra tough rubber so when Diesel took it away for a chew he couldn’t do it.

Krypto: Yes, even I liked this one. It’s nice and heavy so I could play fetch in the garden with it.

Diesel: It’s saying something if you like it! You are a tough cookie when it comes to toys.

Krypto: I know, I think it was the natural rubber and the colour.

Buffy: We’re dogs, we can’t see colour.

Krypto: Maybe but I know it’s blue. When Diesel chewed a bit off the end the human laughed because he would leave little blue presents in the garden.

Diesel: Natural rubber, safe to eat, but I can’t chew through it? That doesn’t seem fair.


Woof and Brew Skin and Coat Herbal Tea

WOOF&BREW Herbal Dog Tea, Skin and Coat, 28 Bags

Buffy: I love tea! I love it when mummy gives us a special drink.

Krypto: I have to say, even I’m enjoying the tea. But the human didn’t seem to pleased when I drank it out of her cup.

Diesel: That was her coffee you ding-bat! Plus you knocked it all over the kitchen counter and flooded the place!

Buffy: Did you know he covered her phone in coffee too?

Krypto: Maybe I should just stick to the dog tea.

Buffy: Yes, do that please. Besides, the dog tea has burdock, dandelion, flax and nettle in it. There is no caffeine. Caffeine is bad, herbal tea is good.

Diesel: And the tea bag pack had seven tea bags in it, so that was enough to give us a cup of tea in our water bowl every night for a week. Just the thing to finish the day off.


Billy + Margot Apple, Banana and Carrot Training Biscuits

Billy + Margot Dog Training Biscuits Apple, Banana and Carrot 125g

Buffy: These were so yummy! I hope mummy gets more of these!

Krypto: Yes, these were nice. I enjoyed having a different treat for training time.

Diesel: You only liked them because you have a thing for banana.

Krypto: So? The human moved the fruit bowl out of my reach so if I want a banana now I have to ask for a biscuit.

Buffy: They were a good size too. I enjoyed getting these as a reward. Do you know that I learnt two new tricks while mummy used these?

Diesel: I forgot all my training while she had them out, they smelt so good!
