It’s 2018!!

Posted on:

Ducky: Hey Folks ~ My brother Leroy and I can’t believe it is already 2018! The past year went flying by as we worked hard marketing and working with retail buyers for our ROVING WATERING BOWL and delicious CANINES & CARROTS dog treats. Leroy: We have also been busy doing a lot of taste testing to ensure the cookies are perfect AND spending time outside walking/hiking with Mom so our Roving Watering Bowl is working just right. VERY important. (wink,wink) Ducky: ANYWAY, we just wanted to remind all you Mom’s and Dad’s that our ROVING WATERING BOWL is best kept…

Meetings are hard work!

WOW… Working on the ROVING WATERING BOWL really takes time and we have to go to a lot of meetings!!   Leroy:   “I prefer Ducky does all the talking at the meetings… I would much rather investigate where I am!” Ducky:  “Actually what Leroy means is, he would rather look for something to eat while no one is looking!”

We love agility classes!

We are SO excited a new session of Agility Classes have started!!  It is such a fun way to get some exercise and spend time with our Mom:-) Leroy:  “My brother Ducky is much more advanced but,  he has been doing it longer than me.  He likes to give me tips and share his experiences.  I just learned how to get on the agility Teeter and think it is so fun!!” Ducky:  “Leroy is doing great!  I am really proud of him!  One of my favorite obstacles is the Weaves.  Although, everything in Agility is super fun for me.  I…

The Boy’s Story

Ducky: “Okay, so I was a tad wild as a young one and ran away a few times, but heck, I was just curious and needed some exercise!”   Ducky’s family didn’t…
