Bully Sticks

Hiya Blogland!! Everyone have a wonderful weekend?? I was so busy I'm a bit late posting this weekend!!
On Friday we went to our son-law Sean's graduation from Federal Law Enforcement Training. He's now a Federal Police Officer. He earned the Distinguished Weapons Expert Award in his class. We are very proud of him!!
I wore my thrifted black & white dress with my new sandals (reduced from $70 to $12.99) from Kohl's. I am also sporting the FANTASTIC new bracelet I won in Patti of Not Dead Yet's recent giveaway. I had loads of compliments on it. The necklace is thrifted, also. This dress is going to need some major altering very soon!!

Saturday I was running errands and picking up suppliers for the Senior Appreciation Breakfast I was hostessing at church on Sunday. I pulled on some old jeans, a thrifted stripey top and my Skecher ballet flats. This top is also in the to be altered pile now!!

While i was out and about I ran into this fabulous lady in a parking lot. She allowed me to take her picture to share as she is VERY VISIBLE!! Ms. Betty is just a bit shy of 60 and wears whatever she wants when she wants!!

After the Senior Breakfast my family (mom, sister's family, daughter & son-in-law) got together to
celebrate Sean's graduation by eating steamed crabs. There are no pictures because we were too busy picking out all that luscious crabmeat!!

Here's some pictures of the battlefield trails Gracie and I hiked over the weekend. The fields are so gorgeous in the late afternoon golden sunlight.

We discovered lots of "wildlife" on our hikes. A dead snake, the STINKY carcass of a dear, and a pile of deer fur all got Gracie's attention! 

Gratuitous cute doggie photos!!! Those long things the dogs are chewing are Bully Stix that my daughter sent for them. Bully Stix are made from bull penis's. They are better thasn rawhide chews as they sorta melt when they chew them. I was calling them "boners" but Lauren said that was humiliating to MrBill telling him to go get his boner to chew. LOLOLOL They LOVED them, though!!

I'm linking up with all of the fantastic ladies at Visible Monday!!  come by and check everyone out!! I'll be back Tuesday evening with more fun and frolic!!

That looks like a great weekend and congratulations to your son-law. :-) You look super adorable, and I love that stripey top. Sometimes when I look at your pics of Maryland, I get a little nostalgic for my parents and the area around them.

Patti said...

When I saw BULLY STICKS in the title I knew what you were talking about and started cracking up! I bought one for my dog not knowing what they were and she went BAZERK for it! I went back to the pet store to get another and asked what it was made of because my dog loved it so much and she told me what it was and I was grossed out and never touched it again with my bare hands. One word of caution with the BULLY STICKS is they SMELL really bad so don't let the doggie chew them on furniture where you take a nap. :-)

You all must be very proud of him! Congrats! I love that you are stopping random cool woman and taking their picture, they probably feel the same about you! The doggies and their boners, noway, look happier than pigs in you know what! Have a great week honey!

What a fun and busy weekend.

Congrats to your son-in-law. You must be so proud.

So cool you stopped that woman to take her photo. I bet you made her day : )

I hope you didn't have a surgical error when you had your operations as well : (


thorne garnet said...

yeah, for having to take clothes in.

That Gracie is quite the rummager. She finds the strangest things

Megan Gann said...

Omg!! I love love love times a million that striped top.

LOL how cute are your pups! Miss Gracey looks so happy and healthy. Mr. Bill even looks like he's got some perk in his step.

Your sense of fashion is great, but your sense of humor has me rolling on the floor laughing!!! Honestly, I'm glad I wasn't eating anything or I would have choked!

The Style Crone said...

You always provide fun and frolic Tamera! Who knew about the Bully Stix?

You are fabulous in black and white. But then you are a supermodel, so of course that would be true.

Val Sparkle said...

The only good snake is a dead snake, in my book.

Now, bully stix. Weird, huh? I think I would cringe to see a dog gnawing on that. But if they like it...

Congrats on taking your clothes in! Your face is looking thinner, too!

Spashionista Alicia Searcy said...

I love your new sandals! Don't you just love it when your patience pays off and you get beautiful things for a song? You look so lovely, Tamera, and I'm always grateful for the Pup-pics (today is National Dog Day, btw).


Sheila said...

You look gorgeous on that black and white dress. LOL at the bull penises! Oh my gosh!

Vix said...

Congratulations to Sean, you must all be very proud.
You look fab, can you image how pissed off you'd have been if you'd bought those sandals for $70?!
I can't believe you get doggie snacks made from bulls' penises, I bet they'd been illegal here! xxxxxx

Jan Graham-McMillen said...

You make a lovely Mother of the Fed! Congrats to all of you! You look brilliant, and I'm so excited for you with your size adjustments(!)
Doggy pics are never gratuitous. They're like icing on the rich gooey cupcake that is your blog.
I have had a completely cruddy week, but you and the pups make it better, always.

Miss Simmonds Says said...

oh those Battlefield trails are so beautiful, they look a lot like the woods and common near me, so I'm probably a little biased, but they're the kind of landscapes you want to float around in a melt into. I always love the dog photos, they make me smile xxxx

Misfits Vintage said...

BONERS! HA! That's fantastic!!!

Bully sticks treat is good option, but I am actually searching for natural rawhide bones on internet. There are many types of treats some are hard crunchy treats, chewy gooey treats for furry friend. It all depends on what your furry friend wants to consume and what is better for the health of the dog.

Fredric Dewitt said...

Natural dog food is actually not the same as Organic Chews Foodand this can be very hard to differentiate. Raw foods like meat and bones are available from the market or a pet store. We can also give freeze dried foods because the freeze drying process helps to retain the food's nutrients. Raw food diets can also be effective in reducing or eliminating numerous chronic diseases and degenerative diseases. In order to keep our pets healthy and active, you might want to feed him healthy natural dog food. Raw meat usually contains parasites, viruses and Salmonella, making your dog an easy victim of diseases. When you cook the food, you kill all those invaders.
