Isabel and Roxanne, otherwise known as Bella and Roxy, are both 7 years old and live with their momma near Fort Worth, TX. Bella is a "Dorkie" or Dachshund & Yorkie mix while Roxy is a "Chorkie" or Chihuahua & Yorkie mix. Check in here for the pups' most recent adventures and photos- yes their Mom is a little obsessed with them- as well as blog posts that relate to all things dog & pet.
Both girls are experienced travelers, both by plane and by car, and have their favorite products that make life easier while on the road. Isabel is the more reluctant traveler (and you had better not forget her favorite orange ball or you're in BIG trouble) while Roxy is ready to make a bee-line for the car at a moment's notice (get the diaper bag mom, I'm ready to rock!). Their favorite places to go are Grandma's and Great Grandma's as, you guessed it, they get ALL the belly rubs and are spoiled rotten there.

The Orange Ball In All Isabel's Photos
Unfortunately this exact ball is no longer in production but we have several toys in this line by West Paw Design (Zogoflex) made for power chewers. Bella is 100% a power chewer despite her size... she once decimated a Kong in less than 5 minutes and a tennis ball in 60 seconds flat. Her favorite ball is the "Huck" which was replaced with the "Jive" a few years ago. Yes, years. This power chewer has had her favorite ball by her side for 6 years now.
