Wordless Wednesday: What's With the Waiting?

Rita has been enjoying some samples we received from I and Love and You of their dehydrated raw food.

She loves it! But in the immortal words of Tom Petty, "the waaaaaiting is the hardest part!"
To answer Rita's question, and save you doing math, 15 minutes in dog minutes is 105 minutes. That's close to two hours! Poor Rita!
We mix a little in with her grain-free kibble. Maybe the waiting makes it taste even better, cuz she gobbles it up when it's ready. (And this girl is a PICKY eater.)

The folks at ILY contacted us because they saw the post I'd done a while back about how much Rita liked their Ear Candy. They noticed that I said in the post that I wanted to try some of their dehydrated food, so they sent us samples, but it was right before we went on vacation. And then when we got back, I was crazy busy with the new novel. So we're finally getting around to trying the samples and Rita is a fan!

They also sent us some "nothin' but chicken" treats, which we tore into immediately.
As you might imagine, they were a huge hit.

In Other News...
The 99 cent sale for What the Dog Ate that I mentioned on Monday has been going really well. The book actually hit #1 on Amazon's Humorous Fiction chart. (!!) Not sure it will stay there very long, but I'm enjoying it for as long as it lasts! (I'm extending the sale through Thursday if you know anyone who'd like to read a Fido-friendly romantic comedy.)

Also, Rescue Me, Maybe got a really nice review from a book blogger that you can check out here, if you are so inclined! 

Note: We were sent the samples from I and Love and You as a nice gesture after our earlier post. They specifically said we were under no obligation to post a review, but I wanted to share our thoughts since we really like the products.

Happy (not so) Wordless Wednesday!

  2. Rita,
    Wilhelm, Brychwyn & Huxley can TOTALLY relate. In fact, we quit trying dehydrated food because the racket while waiting was unbearable! Boys.

  14. Rita looks quite patient! Wrigs would be doing a dance and have rivers of saliva pouring out of his mouth if he had to wait 15 minutes for his food. :-D Congratulations on your success with What the Dog Ate! That's fantastic!

  19. Your book sounds so good you may be pushing out of my comfort zone of paper in the world of the Kindle. I do most changes kicking and screaming.

  20. Aw, poor Rita! 15 minutes is like forever when it comes to dogs :)

  21. Jimmy and Wilson want to know why dog food companies aren't sending them sample????!!!

  22. What a good patient girl Rita was! Kobi is starting to get picky I think, so we may need to find something good to add to his kibble to step it up a bit for him.
    Congrats on the #1 with your book!!

  27. After showing such restraint waiting for the food to rehydrate, I'm glad you gave those treats a good chomp! The foodables must be reminded who's boss!

  28. Hey Rita

    I'm sure glad they gave you some treats to snack on whilst you waited the 15 looooong minutes! :)
