Special Serene Sunday

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie, here with a special kind of serenity this week!  There are so many things we consider serene - the birdies and wildflowers Mom takes photos of, our wonderful walks around our little corner of the world, spending time together, just taking in all the beauty around us!  But sometimes that beauty comes in the way of a gesture - and that's what we'd love to tell you about today!

Do you know our friends Millie and Walter, over at Bird Brains and Dog Tales?  If you don't, you should check out their blog - it's awesome!  Anyway, they were asked to review a toy for Chewy.com this month - West Paw Design's Zogoflex Air Dash! They received the package twice; when they let Sydney at Chewy.com know, she said they could send the extra to anyone they wanted to -- and they chose to send it to us! Do you know how special that made us feel?!? A BEAUTIFUL gesture by Millie, Walter, and their mom!!! They knew we had recently purchased a couple other toys in the Zogoflex line and thought (rightly so!) we might like checking out the Dash!

"LOOK!  A card with my friend Walter's picture on it!"

Isn't Walter a cool guy?  He and Millie wrote us a really nice note!  Cam and I both read it before Mom broke out the toy!  We went into the living room to try it out!

"Look, Maggie!  It's from Millie and Walter!"
"Thank you, friends!!!"

"Hi, Mags!"
"Funny, Mom.  Are we here to play or take photos?"

Mom gave it a good toss and I pounced right on it!

"GOT IT!"

Our lawn had just been fertilized, so Mom didn't want me playing out there yet.  That's OK - we've got lots of maneuver room in the living room!

Here are a few things of note about the Zogoflex Air Dash:

I checked the important ones:

~Dishwasher safe, like our other Zogoflex toys - great if it gets funky!
~Unsupervised use is risky.  Mom said something about "especially for Mags", but I don't remember seeing that anywhere.  Maybe that's what "Une utilisation non supervisée est risquée" means.  I should have paid more attention in French class!
~Made in Bozeman, Montana, right here in the US of A!

All important features!

Oh.  And please don't worry about Cam!  While I played supervised with the Dash, Cam played with the Zogoflex Tux!

"I like this toy!"

She is more into relaxing with a chew toy; I'm more in the "run with it, run after it, attempt to rip it to shreds" camp.

The Dash is contoured a bit, which makes pick-up mighty easy!  Here I am, grabbing it after a throw:

Yes, we play "Fetch" in the house.  Did you know you should be really careful when throwing toys in the house?  Enough said, right, Mom?

Even though the Dash will be a "supervised only" toy, it is very sturdy!

"Let's give this baby a good test drive!"

We played actively for at least half an hour, with me getting to chomp down on the Dash between throws, and I didn't even make a mark on it!  Mom was VERY impressed!!!

"Outstanding!"
"I'll say!  
I give the Zogoflex Air Dash five out of five stars!!!"

Thank you, Millie and Walter (and your mom) -- and Chewy.com -- for letting us try this toy!  It meant a lot to us that you thought of us and sent this really cool toy!  Friends are awesome and make us feel so very serene!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
