Say Cheese #chewyinfluencer

Chewy White

In Wisconsin we say cheese for many reasons, being one of the biggest cheese states and all so why not say cheese for Himalayan Dog Chew Yaky Churro Himalayan cheese dog treats which can be found at


Himalayan Dog Chew is known for making innovative treats from Himalayan hard cheese, and their Yaky Churro Himalayan Cheese Dog Treats provide a uniquely delicious example. These authentic treats are made in the USA, but they follow an ancient recipe that converts milk into hard cheese using the same methods and techniques perfected by the people of the Himalayas. A dash of salt and splash of lime are added, and the cheese is sundried, smoked and made into a chewy churro stick. The result is a smoky cheese-flavored treat with a softer texture that’s easier for all dogs to chew, even puppies and seniors. ~Chewy

Key Benefits:

  • Himalayan cheese churro with cheese flavor

  • No lactose, grains or gluten

  • Softer texture that’s easier for all dogs to chew, even puppies and seniors

Gambler was the first one to try the churro, he dug right in and broke off little pieces. You could hear the cheese squeak with every chew. He gives them paws up.

Guilty was the next one to try them, she liked them so much she had to make mean faces when she was chewing on them. She made them squeak too. She gives them paws up.

Momma Glory was next to try them, she just had a litter of puppies over a week ago and she was up at this time for a little snack. She savored the cheese flavor. She gave them paws up too.

Each of the dogs dug right in and enjoyed these treats. They didn’t last very long because of their softness but the ingredients and the extras enzyme to help fight plaque makes it a treat I would get again.

I was given one bag of Himalayan dog chew yaka churro in exchange for a honest review from




Fiesta Destruction

When oh when will I learn that I can’t turn my back on Gambler for one second?

I had an upcoming #chewyinfluencer review coming up and the product was made with cheese so I thought my friend has some cheese hats that will make a great prop. Well needless to say I did the photo shoot and they did make great props and then Gambler proceeded to tell me what he thought of the fake cheese!

So the sad part about this and I hate to admit it is he wrecked the sombrero one day and then today I went into the spare room where they were hiding and Gambler followed me in there. I turned my back not thinking and in no time flat he was wrecking not the wrecked one but the good one! My own stupity just cost me a internet order to replace these because I’m my house if I borrow something and wreck it I replace it! Oh Gambler you will need to start looking for a job!!

Stay tuned for the Chewy review stating the non wrecked hats!

Pheasant Hunting With Red

This is Red she is Gambler and Choptank’s daughter, she will be turning 2 the end of April. She came down and visited us this past weekend. The last time she pheasant hunted was last year when she was just a year old. Once she got on a scent she immediately started working and following her nose to the bird, she flushed it up, the hunter shot and then she marked the bird down and completed the retrieve. It was fun watching this girl work, after the first bird she let us know she knew what was expected and off she went.

She a lean mean little machine weighing in at 55-60 lbs, that doesn’t slow her down at all it actually makes it easier for her to move through the thick brush, marsh grass and woods. She mainly is a woodcock and grouse dog so being small and quick is perfect for her.  It was a joy to spend the weekend with her and Rick.

Gamblers SPOT-ON Title

Gambler is now a SPOT-ON canine. He passed his UKC SPOT evaluation with outstanding ratings.

It’s Official

The 2017 UKC Conformation show season and the Top Ten Standings have been posted. When you show in Conformation in the UKC if your dog wins the class it is showing in and there is competition behind them they will win top ten points one point for each dog that they beat. The top ten dogs with points will be invited to the UKC Premier held in June at Kalamazoo, Michigan. They will show in the Top Ten show and there are semi finals and finals. You compete against all breeds of dogs and try to win over them to become the top ten dog. It’s a big deal in the UKC. I’ve held this position before. Gambler and I were first in the top ten two years in a row. When he went to the Premier we made it to the finals and was amongst the 10 finalists to be chosen from.

Here are the results of 2017 Top Ten Standings

Josey owned by Tom and Irene Pawlisch had a wonderful year, huge congratulations to them this is the second year in a row they were in the top ten. Riggs owned by Roger Glasgow and JoAnn Stancer along with Gambler and Glory owned by JoAnn Stancer earned placements. This is Gambler and Glory’s third time being in the top ten. I’m pretty proud of all the Sand Spring dogs! Now we need to plan our summer vacation to the 2018 UKC Premier!

New Year Pheasant Guide For Gambler And Guilty

The gang took December off from any pheasant guides at Loan Oak Shooting Preserve in Montello, WI. The past two weeks we have had sub zero temperatures so the gang runs out to potty and then they come right back in. Stay out any longer and they hold their paws up. To say they are stir crazy is putting it mildly.

Gambler and Guilty were the guide dogs on Sunday. Glory had to stay home since we bred her in December and still haven’t found out if she is preggers or not we decided it was best she stay home and rest. There were 5 guys so Gambler and I took three of them while John and Guilty took the other two. Since I had the camera Gambler got the most pictures taken of him. I was able to catch one photo of Guilty.

The hunt was from 8 to 12 pm. The temperature was finally in the twenty’s, it was still cold but when you were walking and the dogs were running doing something they love to do they didn’t have a problem with the cold. Gambler and Guilty both caught a couple pheasants on their own. They said they didn’t need any guns. They both did an excellent job for the hunters who at the end of the hunt ended up with 31 birds.

A great day was had by all!

Petlandia Books

Petandia Books

A book starring your pets!

My friend passed this Facebook page  Petandia Books onto me knowing I do pet therapy work with the Sand Spring gang so she thought it would be cute to have a book made featuring my dogs so when the kids read to them they would be reading about the dog visiting and having a real live experience.

Guilty got a book of her own, she starred in Guilty Meets Grumpy Cat in Petlandia.

Since Gambler and Glory grew up together and are only 6 months apart in age I thought I should do a combined book with them.

Austin read Gambler and Glory’s Petlandia Roadtrip adventure to Gambler at one of our R.E.A.D sessions. He thought it was pretty cool to be reading about Gambler. He giggled at what Gambler and Glory were doing on their roadtrip. I can’t wait to have more kids read these books to the gang.

Guilty being read to.

Guilty loved having her adventure with Grumpy cat read to her on Wednesday. I loved how the little girl always had a hand on Guilty.

Petlandia is based in the UK. They have an website which is easy to place your order on, you can view it here. They offer a book starring one dog, cat, rabbit or two. You can pick your type of animal that best represents your breed, you can pick the color of your animal as well as the gender.  Their customer service is excellent as I thought I messed up on my order and emailed them right away and they got back to me in a timely manner. I got my books in a few weeks as well and couldn’t be happier with them. They offer free shipping from the UK which I thought was great as I know how much it costs to send stuff over seas.


New Pet Therapy Books

Sand Spring Chesapeakes pet therapy team received some new pet therapy books from our dear friend Tracy who is a reading teacher. She follows along with the adventures of Sand Spring and loves the pet therapy work that we do. She knows how much of a difference the dogs make in children’s lives. I don’t have children and don’t know much about children’s books so you can only imagine how excited I was when I received some books in the mail.

5 new books.

It just so happened that I placed a Thirty One order with my friend Teresa who is a Thirty One consultant and my bags arrived the same time I got the books. I got the medium utility tote engraved it with Sand Spring Chesapeakes filled it and everything fit perfect.

My new Thirty One bag.

I also got the double duty caddy that will hold all my small stuff, it fits right into my utility tote. I can keep everything organized now.

Double Duty Caddy

I took my new bags and books and off we went for a R.E.A.D therapy visit. We headed to Fall River Middle School to meet up with a couple of second and third graders. Gambler was my co-pilot for the visit.

The reader today was a girl and she picked out Madeline Finn and the Library Dog.

Gambler laid down and listened very carefully to the story.

She would take a moment to pet Gambler.

Gambler had to lean in as she was reading to him about a dog that was a R.E.A.D dog and a girl was reading to him in school and this girl said “she is reading to him just like I am reading to you”. It was a very cute story and she so enjoyed reading it to Gambler and told him so.

Gambler was hoping she would take a break and give him a little kissy or more like it a treat.

I can’t thank Tracy enough for thinking of us and being our therapy supporters.

Right now Thirty One is having a customer appreciation sale going on until 1/14. If you are in need of anything you can order through my friend Teresa by clicking on her link Thirty One.

UKC Conformation Weekend December 2017

December 16-17, 2017 Gambler, Guilty and Josey attended the Dodge County Canine Club UKC dog show in Ixonia, WI. Gambler and Josey competed in Rally O which was held on the Friday before the show, if you missed that post you can view it here.

Gambler and Josey were entered into the grand champion class as they both have their UKC Grand Champion titles, Guilty was entered into the champion class as she only has one leg out of five towards her grand champion title. The class dog goes into the ring first. Guilty was the only class dog so in all four shows she won the champion class. Next into the ring was the grand champions Gambler and Josey, Gambler was first in the class as males go first. I was nervous doing anything with Gambler as we have been training for Rally O and he has a tendency to jump, bite and try to hump me while running the course. He did an excellent job Friday night at Rally O with no shenanigans.  Gambler hasn’t been in the show ring since 2014, I was handling Gambler when all the shenanigans started. When we were asked to go around the ring to show his movement he started jumping, biting and yes humping me. I was pushing him off me, telling him leave it and continuing on around the ring. He really was putting on a good show, I could hear the crowd stop what they were doing and watch us. In the end Gambler took Best Of Breed over Josey. The judge said “boy was he frisky, the movement I did see out of him was really nice so I picked him”. The second show went better as no shenanigans, again the judge picked Gambler for the Best Of Breed. Because he won BOB and qualified in Rally O the night before he received Total Dog status for the dog show and got a nice big red and black ribbon.

Gambler’s ribbons for the weekend.

Since I had entered both Gambler and Guilty I needed help showing one. Sophia handled Guilty, it’s a good thing I had her handing Guilty as she didn’t need to deal with Gamblers shenanigans. She did an excellent job showing her.

Guilty’s ribbons for the weekend.

On Sunday I only entered Gambler in the second show. The first show it was again Guilty in the champion class and Josey in the grand champion class. This time around the judge chose Josey for Best Of Breed. Since she got BOB at the show and qualified in Rally O the night before she too received her Total Dog.

Josey’s ribbons for the weekend.

For the fourth show it was the same line up and the judge picked Guilty for the Best Of Breed. I asked her why she picked Guilty over Gambler and she said she liked them both but she liked Guilty’s broad head better than Gamblers. Since Guilty went BOB she picked up her second leg out of five for her grand champion title.

Everyone’s ribbons.



Everyone came away winners this weekend. It was a fun weekend with the dogs and friends. Thanks to Sophia for help showing Guilty. It’s nice to have someone able to help me out since I have multiple dogs I want to show. Thanks to Dodge County Canine Club for hosting the show and thanks to the four judges that judged us in the show ring.

I helped steward the rings this weekend, I learned a lot about the different dogs and why the judges picked who they picked. The judges were very nice at explaining things. I have now joined the Dodge County Canine Club so I will be able to help out more at future events. I figure I’m there anyways might as well pass the time doing something.
