Coco Bean Nose: Eukanuba Chihuahua Formula

Hello fur-friends!

I was asked for my sisters and i to try out a new Chihuahua specific dog food by Eukanuba. Here's what happened...

At first my sisters and i were very interested in the bag that mommy brought inside (the nice people at Eukanuba were kind enough to send us two bags for the 28 day challenge) Lady Godiva was more interested in sticking her head in the bag than trying what mommy had put in the bowl. but after all, the sneaky little meatball IS known for being able to stick her head in peoples pockets without them realizing it so that she can steal gum!Truffle on the other hand had no problems trying to dive right into the bowlI on the other hand (as you can see) didn't want anything to do with it. Mommy even tried to hand feed me one kibble at a time which mommy KNOWS i am a total sucker for and i still wouldnt have anything to do with this new food.
Now, before you get the impression that i am a picky Princess, let me assure you that i am not...for some reason i really just wasn't interested in this food for some reason. But mommy knows that if i don't want to try a new food, she wont try for force it on me; she just takes my word for it. If only i was able to convince her of this when it comes to medicine.

Truffle and Godiva couldn't get enough of this food on the other hand. as you can see from this photo, they were totally begging for mommy to just hand over the bowl!
Because it is not good to just switch foods on us doggies, what mommy did was she measured out a 1/4 of a cup of this new Eukanuba Chihuahua food and took small hand fulls and tossed them on the floor so that Truffle, Godiva and I would go hunt for it...
it is a game that my sisters and i LOVE to play, but as you can see from the last picture...only 2/3 of that plan worked...you don't see my furry little butt hunting in that pic! and do you know why... yep, you guessed it. it's because i kept my furry little princess butt planted on the sofa!
My little wart-hog sisters on the other hand were begging for more! As you can see...there goes Godiva trying to stick her head back in the bag!
Mommy decided that a 1/4 of a cup between us was enough for introductions and she didn't want to upset our tummies so she put the bag away and fed us our normal dinner shortly after (which for the record, i gobbled up)

The next morning was the true test...you know...when we do our morning poobles and weebles. This my friends was then the REAL testing of the food takes place...and here's the result:

Coco Bean Poobles: perfect (but i didnt eat any of the Eukanuba
Truffle Poobles: too moist and didnt have the firmness it should have had. didn't pick up easy
Lady Godiva Poobles: Better than Truffles but not as good as mine

Aditionally, Truffle and Godiva were prone to gasious eruptions all night! Truffle's butt even squeaked!

The packaging is esthetically pleasing and the size of the kibble is perfect for our tiny mouths. As for the smell; it isnt as offensive as some of the other dog food on the market.

Mommy really wanted to stick to the 28 day challenge with all three of us, but was only able to continue it with Godiva who desperately needs to lose weight.

Truffle and i are back on our special dog food. Godiva really seems to like the Eukanuba but her poop hasn't firmed up so mommy is thinking that we wont make it the full 28 days.

And that my fur-friends is a Coco Bean Nose Review on the new Eukanuba Chihuahua Formula Dog food.

A New Friend in Bloggy Land!

Hi there friends!

i wanted to introduce you to a new furkid here in bloggy land named Nola. Nola is a super cute Dachshund with LOTS of personality just like us that lives here in the United States.

Here are a couple photos of our new fur-friend Nola!i think Nola was hunting tree-lobsters (AKA Squirrel) in this last pic!

So head on over to Nola's Bloggy by clicking on either of these two photos or on her name to be re-directed to her bloggy!

Nibbles & Licks,

Truffle (AKA Truffie Monster)

Caught in the act!

Mommy keeps our doggy food in a large container in the kitchen. The other day, it was dinner time and Truffle wasn't waiting in her crate like she usually is and when mommy was calling Truffie she wasn't responding...then we heard a ruckus in the kitchen...an this is what we found...
Somehow, Truffie-Monster managed to jump up into the food container! i guess the temptation of the entire container was much more appealing than her bowl with measures scoop of food in it. This was just too cute of a scene for mommy to be upset at Truffie for doing what she KNOWS is a major no-no.

CONTEST UPDATE: Mommy has emailed the publisher your photo submissions but he is on vacation until the 28th of November. so i am going to be posting the photo submissions here on my next post (this weekend) so that you all can vote too!

Wordless Wednesday

Sadly, Truffle was not as excited about her new pajamas as mommy was...But she just looked too darn cute not to share this. For those of you who have asked, mommy purchased her Pajamas at Target for $7.99
And here is a photo of me wearing my mommy's favorite hat:And here is a photo of Lady Godiva all cuddled up. And before you ask, yes she throws this look around ALL THE TIME! and the worst part is that EVERYONE falls for it! Mommy is always telling her "Stop being so cute; Its distracting"
If you have not already heard, we are hosting a contest! Don't forget to check it our and submit a photo (or two). our peemail address can be found on our profile :)

Had a serious talk with mom...

I was on my way with my mommy to Grandma's house to play with Cousin Abbie and Auntie Princess (AKA Prinnie-Bug)And i told mom that Truffle (AKA Truffie or Monster) and Lady Godiva (AKA Peanut or Meatball) REALLY needed to start making appearances on my bloggy! after all, they ARE my sisters and i DO share my house with them...right??? Mommy said "oh, ok Coco Bean, well see" and then i gave her my "i'm serious mommy" face.And as you are about to see, What Coco Bean wants, Coco Bean gets! Here are some super cute photos of Truffie who happened to be looking particularly cute (and well behaved)last night. So for today, I'm going to turn my bloggy over to Truffie!Hello furends! WOW ow WOW do i feel special that my big sister Coco Bean is sharing her bloggy with me for the day! I have lots I would love to tell you about but what i feel is most important is how mommy has managed to get me diagnosed with doggy ADHD. so now every evening mommy gives me what she calls "doggy Prozac" and it is super yummy and she gives it to me in this squirtey thing but i wish the squirtey thing would give me more cause it tastes so good that my sister Godiva tries to lick it as mommy is giving it to me!
Most importantly, ever since putting me on Doggy Prozac, i have not had a single potty accident and i manage to keep my butt over the pee-pad the ENTIRE time i am going potty which makes mommy VERY happy! I have even shown mommy that i know tricks like sit, stay (for about 5-10 seconds but then i bark), bed, doggy jail (crate), and my personal favorite command "go play" and that command means that me and my sister and Coco Bean get to bark and jump and run around like wild beasts for a few seconds! As you can see, i am even allowed up on the bed because i don't go potty up on mommy's bed anymore! the vet said that i wasn't stupid it was just that i couldn't focus (hmm, like mother like daughter?)Mommy is even looking to start taking me to doggy agility because she says that it will be good for my confidence and her waste line that she says needs to shrink. now, personally, i don't understand what my confidence and her waste line have to do with one another, but if it means more play /running time with mommy than I'm all for it! Mommy says that I'm going to be the best agility Chihuahua because i LOVE to run and i can jump higher than any Chihuahua that mommy has ever seen. Mommy knows this for sure because the top of her mattress is is 3.25 feet from the floor and i can jump on it without needing a running start OR touching the side of the bed with my nails. Not bad for a 7 1/2 pound chihuahua huh!? Mommy has found agility places, but these people want to train and work with me for mommy and that's not what mommy wants, mommy wants to train WITH me which i think is totally cool!

Anyway, i sure am glad i got to chat with you all and i hope that you are all going to send in a photo or two for the contest my sister is hosting! If you are not familiar with the contest i am referring to, please see the post below.

Frantic Nibbles & Licks,

Coco Bean Nose: “Awkward Family Pet Photos” Book Review and CONTEST!

This has got to be the most fun book review I have ever done! The title of the book says it all and I promise you won’t be disappointed if you go out and get this book. My sisters and I cuddled with mommy as we looked at each photo and read each caption.

Awkward Family Pet Photos is the perfect size for any coffee table as it doesn’t take up too much or too little room! Measuring in at a whopping 7”x8.5”; this half inch thick book is filled with oober cuteness and laughter page after page that you could never get sick of looking at!

Here are a few of our favorites just to give you an idea of what kind of cuteness is in here:

“Bennie, we are sure, grows thumbs when we leave him. He has separation anxiety and he hates being left alone so he managed to push open a window on the second floor and scale up to the peak of the third floor. He was looking for his “people!”

The Assistant

Cookie Monster

Embrace Me 2

"That’ll do, human."

It really is way too hard to just pick a few but I'm sure you get the point!

Ok, so now for the contest…My sisters and I have teamed up with new friend at the Crown Publishing Group, Inc. in New York and we would like to send a brand new copy of this book directly to you directly from the Publishers to the furkid or human who sends us the best Awkward Family Pet Photo of them and their family!

We love our humans and we know that they love us unconditionally, but let’s be honest… sometimes they take pretty silly photos of us. So why not surprise them with a beautiful coffee table book full of funny photos of other humans and their furkids!?

Here are the rules:

1. PeeMail me your Awkward family Pet Photo no later than November 15th, 2011 (we want to make sure you have enough time to wrap it for your human)

2. 2. The Awkward Family Pet Photo must be of you (or those of your litter) and your Human or human relative.

3. 3. Photos of furkids other than yourself will not be entered into the contest as I have no way of authenticating if they are REALLY your relatives

And just to be a good sport about awkward family photos, I would like to post one of my mommy and my cousin Abbie which looks like a totally cute photo until you hear the story behind it… Abbie LOVES giving kisses and mommy is always more than happy to oblige. After taking this photo, Grandma told mommy that just before she arrived, Abbie found a dead and fairly squished squirrel under a parked car and carried it through her entire 1.25 mile walk because Grandma couldn’t get it out of Abbies mouth! Yea, the awkward moment when you find out that you just kissed a dog on the lips that had been carrying a dead squirrel for 1.25 miles! GROSS!

Can’t wait to see your Awkward Family Photos!

Tail Wiggles & Puppy Kisses,

Coco Bean The Princess

P.S. PLEEEAAAAAAASE don't tell my mommy i told you about the dead squirrel!!
