Found at Costco

Tea of the Day

Started the day off with a wonderful cup of great tasting tea - Numi Gunpowder Green Tea. I’m not sure why it is called “gunpowder” there isn’t really any in the brew. Maybe it is because of the flavor. The Numi website description: “Within hours of being plucked, this whole leaf organic green tea is gently steamed and then rolled into small tight pearls. When steeped, the leaves unfurl, releasing a well-rounded, full-bodied flavor.”
It really does have a nice flavor. Not grassy like some greens can be. Don’t over steep though or it will be bitter. I added just a little bit of sugar (less than a teaspoon) and nothing else.

Found at Costco

The other month I mentioned seeing an ad for AG Pet Travel Sets at Costco. Last week, Xyra went and found them! There were only 4 sets to choose from and of those four pets there were more Sugar and Chocolate Chip sets. Only one Honey and one Pepper in the whole bunch. And NO Meatloaf at all. L We were really hoping he’d be there.

Honey (upper left) is a golden retriever. 
According to the American Kennel Club, “The golden-colored coat is the hallmark of this versatile breed, and can range from light to dark gold.” The golden retriever is a member of the sporting group. The breed is intelligent, active, and energetic with “an eager to please” attitude. They can adapt to different living situations which make them useful as hunting companions, guides, and assistance and search and rescue dogs. They require daily exercise an regular brushing. Honey is currently available through AG website.

Chocolate Chip (top center) is a chocolate Labrador Retriever. 
Labs are the most popular breed in the U.S. They are gentle, intelligent, and family friendly. Because they have an even temperament and want to please they make great hunting companions; excel as guides for the blind, members of search and rescue teams, or as police K-9 narcotics detectors. Labs need regular exercise and grooming. Chocolate Chip was retired as an individual pet in 2012, but can still be found through the AG website in the Service Dog Set.

Sugar (upper right) is a Yorkshire terrier.

Yorkies offer big personalities in a small package. They are brave, determined, investigative and energetic. Yorkies are easily adaptable to all surroundings, travel well and make suitable pets for many homes. Due to their small size, they require limited exercise, but need daily interaction with their people. They have long, luxurious blue and tan coats that require regular brushing. Sugar was retired in 2012.

Pepper (bottom center) is a Siberian Husky.

The Siberian Husky is known for its amazing endurance and willingness to work. Its agreeable and outgoing temperament makes it a great all-around dog, suitable for anything from sledding to therapy work. Huskies have a thicker coat than most other breeds of dog - made up of a dense cashmere-like undercoat and a longer, coarse top coat - that requires weekly brushing. They need daily exercise through walks or an enclosed run. Huskies have strong predatory instincts, so should be supervised around small animals in and around the home. Currently available through AG website and catalog.

Best wishes,
