Hi all.  Let me explain why you are seeing another new dog on the block.  What happened to Rocky?  Well, you see, Rocky was putting the bitey on people without warning and after being all happy, happy, happy.  He sent a vet tech to the hospital, almost bitied the boy and he did bitey the mom but not seriously.  So the V-E-T and the mom decided when Rocky's 10 day bitey hold was up that he was too dangerous and they sent him to heaven so he can come back as a better dog next time.  The mom thinks his peoples who put him in the shelter jail did know about this problem but tried to pass it off on somebody else to deal with.  Grrrr on them.
My mugshot from when I was at the shelter jail.
So the mom's friend is like a boss at the shelter jail where I was.  Some nice peoples found me running loose in Jersey City and brought me to the shelter jail.  The mom's friend told her she should check me out, that she could just see me being a hiking dog.  The mom named me Brodie, I am about 3-4 years old and I promise not to put the bitey on anybody.  What do you think?  Do I look like a good hiking dog?
Not the big mean city street but I think I can dig this.
What does a dog do with this?
A bear!  I saw a real live BEAR!
I think I'm liking this hiking business.
Hike #2
Starting to look like I belong here, no?
Meet the new hiking dog.

My Second Review #chewyinfluencer

Lucky me, mom picked TWO things for me to review this month.  She felt I needed some extra practice.  So sent me another product free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion.
Today I will be reviewing Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Mixers.
I already get Nature's Variety Instinct kibble and mom mixes in some lamb and lentil stuff.
That's all nice and everything but folks...
I don't do breakfast.
Seriously, not a morning eater.
But wait, what is this?  "Top your kibble with RAW?"  It is freeze-dried real chicken, chicken liver, vegetables and fruit.  And I have to tell you...
... it smells DELISH!
Nom nom nom nom nom.
Who me not a breakfast eater?  Whatever gave you that idea?
It was the breakfast of champions.  Drool.

My First Review #chewyinfluencer

I understand that part of my duties is reviewing goodies that sends free of charge for my honest opinion.
I think I am up to the task.
So common, let's see what's in here!
OMD!  It's Fruitables Whole Jerky Grilled Bison Strips.  Drool!
But we must take this on the road to find a good break spot for the taste testing.
This looks like a good trail.
Snootering around for a spot.
Ah.  Pawfect.
Mom but some in a baggie because the real bag was taking up too much room in her backpack.
Sorry for the blurriness but I was a little excited and moved.
That was so delish that I must be sure no crumbs are left behind.
Oh drool, I get another!
And a third!  My lucky day!
Now I can finish my hike ...
... and go home a happy dog.  I ♥ Fruitables Whole Jerky and what a pawsome hiking treat it makes.

My First Hikes

Thank you all so much for making me feel so very welcome in Blogville.  I think I am going to like it here.

To kick off the hiking part of my new career (the other part of my career is B&B innkeeper-in-training) I had a weekend full of hikes,

I am off on my first adventure but I am not quite sure what that means yet.  Hopefully it is not back to the shelter.
It does not look like the shelter and the sniffs are certainly not those of the shelter.
So much snootering to do there.
I think this might be one of the "seeniks" I have heard about.
♥ I LOVE this ♥
I am at one with the woods.
Real man dogs drink of out pink cups.
Say what?  Snacks come with this hiking experience?
They say I look just like Shawnee in this picture.
Does Rocky like hiking?
Yip Yip Hurray!

We hiked 2.6 miles and I thought that was a lot but mom said something about working up to 10+ miles.

So back on the trail on Sunday and I did 4.6 miles with no problem!
I saw my first deer but I did not freak out or anything, I just watched.  Am I supposed to freak out?
Rocky - just like my name!
My mom has a collection of balloons she finds in the woods.  It used to make her mad to find them but now that she collects them she is all like "OMG!  Look!  A balloon!"  Embarrassing, I know, but I think I'll keep her anyway.  Just don't let your peeps let their balloons go, OK?  It freaks my mom out.
A nice break spot where I got more chicken jerky.
Look how nice I am walking on the leash.  I need a reminder not to pull because sometimes I forget but it doesn't happen very often.
Fun times on my first weekend.
