Wellness WellBites Treats

Happy New Year!

We rang in the New Year by doing some of this:

wellness-5

And munching on some of these:

wellness-4

Our buddies at Chewy.com sent us these Wellness WellBites treats and Teton his been thoroughly enjoying them for the past few weeks.

These soft and chewy treats are made with simple ingredients like beef, turkey, chickpeas, carrots, potatoes, and apples (to name a few).

wellness-1

Like many soft treats, Wellness WellBites are easily broken if you’d prefer not giving your smaller dog the entire thing. This also applies to those of you who are watching your dog’s weight. 😉

I appreciate any line of treats that come in a variety of flavors, and these come in a ton! Check out all the flavors here.

I’ll be reviewing lots more treats this month so be sure to check back soon!

ACANA Lamb & Apple Treats + Shirts for the Dog Lover in Your Life

Hello! Where is that waving emoji girl when I need her? That might be my second favorite emoji of all time. 😀

It’s been a hot minute since I blogged. Yikes. Between Thanksgiving, some traveling, and getting sick, I am happy to home for the rest of the year and looking forward to the holidays!

img_8733

Today I’ve got a new treat to share with you from Chewy.com. Check out the ACANA Lamb & Apple Dog Treats.

img_8798

Oh,  yeah. That bag is open. And we’re about through the darn thing because Teton and his cousin Henley Pretzel have been gettin’ DOWN on these treats.

ACANA’s freeze-dried treats come in a handful of flavors including the one we tried – lamb & apple. I have to say, we got the most tame of the flavors because two of the others are pork & squash and mackerel & greens!

img_8800

Not many ingredients in these little nibblers. We ♥ that! They’re also made in the U S A. Winning.

In my experience, freeze-dried treats are almost always a favorite for any dog. They are easy to chew and digest (it seems) and they smell super strong and delicious.

img_8802

These treats are super awesome because they are small (and easily broken to make even smaller pieces) which makes them both great treats on their own but also fun little sprinkles for the top of your dog’s food. (Sometimes we like to treat ourselves with sprinkles in this household.)

ACANA’s line of freeze-dried treats is available here at Chewy.com. They’d make a great stocking stuffer for your pup!

Ok, warning. Severe selfies ahead.

One of my favorite things to shop for and review are dog products for humans. You know…shirts, mugs, keychains, art, that type of thing. So, being that Christmas is right around the corner (seriously, people, get your shopping done before it’s too late!) I wanted to share with you a few recent purchases and one gift that may just be perfect for the dog lover in your life.

img_8709

Exhibit A. This tank from Wags & Weights. Describes my life. Is amazing. The end.

img_8795Exhibit B. This sweatshirt. A birthday gift from my homie (thanks, girl!). Also describes my life. Available here on Etsy.

img_8786

Exhibit C. This shirt that I clearly needed last weekend when I was visiting my bestie in Arizona. Available here from Farfetched Apparel, along with a zillion other adorable shirts and goodies.

Ok, selfie time has concluded.

I’m off to drink from this, my new favorite mug.

See you next time for some more Christmas gift ideas for that dog lover in your life!

Merrick’s Pappy’s Pot Roast Dinner

This past week, Teton enjoyed Merrick’s Chunky Grain-Free Pappy’s Pot Roast Dinner wet food over his dry food.

merrick1

I love Merrick canned food for Teton and have been buying it for him in a number of their fun recipes since he was about a year old. He doesn’t get canned food over his dry food every time he eats, but it’s great to mix it up once in a while when that same old dry food gets boring.

Our buddies at Chewy.com sent us an entire case of this stuff! Teton isn’t complaining.

halloween-2

(Observe Halloween bandana #1…monster mash.)

Merrick’s Paddy’s Pot Roast Dinner, aside from having the best name ever, is loaded with great ingredients like beef liver, potatoes, and carrots. It looks so much like real pot roast that one of the first reviews of it on Chewy.com is entitled “looks like pot roast.” 😀

Skeptical? Take a gander.

merrick4

This is the kind of food that the husband and I reference when we make statements like “Teton eats better than we do.”

Look at that beef. Those potatoes. The whole carrots.

Paddy’s Pot Roast Dinner is easily cut with a fork right out of the can, which is what I did with the carrots and potatoes before feeding it to Teton. One lick of the spoon before I set his bowl down and he was 100% on board, which is great because he’s been picky with his food lately and more often than not leaves it in the bowl for almost the entire day before eating it.

If you’re in the market for some canned food, give one of the Merrick flavors a try. Chewy.com has SO MANY flavors (check them out here) and they are just under $30 for a case of 12 cans. If you aren’t sure whether your dog can get through that many, split the case with a friend. Sharing is caring.

Paddy’s Pot Roast Dinner is probably Teton’s most favorite flavor but he also like Grammy’s Pot Pie, Cowboy Cookout, Turducken.

Big thanks to Chewy.com for hooking us up again this month!

Teton had a great October. Now that the weather is cooler he spent some days with his pals  Biju and Kyra at work.

teton-and-biju

teton-and-kyra

Pretty good life they’ve got, I think.

October comes to a close tomorrow with Halloween, so Teton will wear his glow-in-the-dark bandana (thanks, Auntie Morgan!) and steer clear of chocolate. 😉

Fromm Four-Star Nutritionals

Hello! It’s my birthday today. I don’t believe anyone should ever have to work on their birthday so I took the day off, worked out, had coffee with a friend, got a massage, ate lunch with my Dad, walked Teton, and just chilled out. Adulting isn’t so bad when you can have a day like today.

The last few weeks, Teton and his buddies have been munching on Fromm Four-Star Nutritionals salmon and sweet potato treats from Chewy.com.

fromm4

These grain-free treats (which are on sale right now for just $3.21!) are made with real salmon, cranberries, sweet potato, spinach, green beans, and beets…just to name a few ingredients. Seriously. I think these treats are probably healthier than some of the things I eat.

fromm3

The Fromm Four-Star Nutritionals are like the PopTart of dog treats. There are a zillion flavors. Check it out here. You can choose from lamb and cranberry, parmesan cheese, liver, cranberry, and a handful of other flavors. (Mmmm…PopTarts.)

Teton and all of his buddies approve of these treats.

Caru Real Turkey Stew

Happy Saturday!

This week, Teton has been enjoying Caru’s Real Turkey Stew on his breakfast and dinner.

caru-stew

Caru’s line of stews are made in the U.S. with 100% human-grade ingredients and come in really unique and smart packaging.

Check it out…

caru-stew-6

caru-stew-2

Voila!

caru-stew-5

To close it back up, all you do is re-folds the flaps together and down. We kept ours in the fridge for a week and never had an issue with spillage. 🙂

This packaging is BPA-free and made from up to 70% paper. It’s so nice to have something that’s environmentally friendly and something that doesn’t require a lid or make me paranoid about slicing a finger open with.

Caru’s Real Turkey Stew looks and smells like something from a Campbell’s can! It’s pretty obvious that it’s made of human-grade ingredients by the chunks of meat, potatoes, and veggies in it.

caru-stew-8

And if the way it looks isn’t enough, the ingredient list seals the deal!

Sometimes Teton is a diva and rejects his dry food so this type of topper is perfect since I only have to use a little to entice him to eat all of his breakfast or dinner. The bonus of only needing to use a little? It lasts longer!

caru-stew-4

We’ve tried a handful of stews from brands like Natural Balance, Merrick, and Taste of the Wild, but I think the Caru line of stews is Teton’s favorite so far.

Check out Caru’s “Find Us” page to see where you can snag a box of stew for your pup!

Happy tails…

The Dog Mom Project – Abby & Copper

The Dog Mom Project – Abby & Copper

Introduce yourself! Share a selfie with you and your dog.

♥ I’m Abby, a proud new mom (with a proud new dad as well) to a handsome doofy dog!

dog-mom-project-abby-and-copper

Ok, tell us about your dog. What’s his/her name? Age? Breed?

♥ His name is Copper. He’s 1.5 years old and is a golden retriever.

What is your favorite thing about your dog?

♥ Copper is still new to us so I’m sure my favorite things about him will change but as of right now, I absolutely love how he places one paw on my lap and then lays down on top of me.

Does your dog have any quirky habits? Tell us about them.

♥ He does this very interesting thing where he moos when he’s happy. It’s not quite a groan and not quite a bark; just a big moo!

Finish this sentence. If my dog had a song stuck in his/her head, it would be…

♥ Canned Heat by Jamiroquai. He’s a happy dog, what can I say?!

At what point did you realize you weren’t just someone who has a dog, but a dog mom?

♥ When we picked Copper up from getting neutered, I got on the ground at the vet and just cried. It was insane and I still tear up thinking about it.

What’s one thing you want someone without a dog to know about being a dog mom?

♥ We get it, they aren’t people. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t killer important to us!! So, let us pick a bar where they can go and let us show you their picture.

What’s your favorite dog product?

♥ So far my favorite dog product has been the Chuck It. It’s so simple but with a dog that can sprint and play fetch, it’s perfect!

Now, share a favorite picture of your dog with us.

Caru Venison Recipe Baked Bites

Happy Wednesday! This week I am thankful for a short week, being that this Monday was Labor Day. I was ready for the weekend yesterday.

Over this last weekend, we had Teton’s cousin, Baron Henley Von Pretzel (Henley P. for short) for a sleepover.

t-h

All weekend long, he and Teton munched on these Caru Venison Recipe Baked Bites.

caru-4

Never heard of Caru? I hadn’t, either. But, they’ve won me over with their story. Also, Caru means “to love” in Welsh. ♥

These soft, easily digested treats are made of just a handful of ingredients including venison, blueberries, and cranberries. And you know Teton loves blueberries.

caru-3

All of Caru’s treats and food are made in the USA of human grade ingredients. In addition, they’re made only in small batches to ensure the best possible outcome in their finished products. Something unique to Caru is their responsible packaging. Caru’s stew line is packaged in Tetra Pak cartons which are made of 70% paper!

caru-stew

(Review to come on Caru’s Real Turkey Stew.)

While Teton and Henley P. tried the venison flavor of Caru’s Baked Bites, there are a multitude of flavors you can choose from, depending on your dog’s favorites. Some intriguing flavors include wild boar, duck, and alligator!

caru-1

Teton is significantly bigger than Henley, but these are great treats for any size dog because you can easily rip them apart to feed more or less. Henley P. sometimes rejects treats but it’s safe to say that he considers these “high value treats” because he never once refused to take one from me. 😉

teton-caru

Teton, either.

You can find Caru treats and stews through the find us page on their website.

Check out their Facebook page and Instagram, too! I ♥ Instagram.

Big thanks to Caru for sending us these high value treats to try out. 😀

Check back next week for our review of Caru’s Real Turkey Stew! Nom.
