Thanksgiving is probably the most special holiday of the year because its sole purpose is to enjoy time with family and friends and reflect on the blessings in our lives. This year the holiday will be an exceptionally special day for my family because it will be the first Thanksgiving we will celebrate with my 4 month-old baby granddaughter. Sadly it will also be bittersweet because it will more than likely be the final Thanksgiving for a very dear cousin. Nevertheless my family will be on hand to celebrate, give thanks and of course, indulge on delicious food. And because Cody and Bailey are family, we even have a yummy Thanksgiving treat just for them. [Read more…]
Cody and Bailey were very excited when a box was delivered to the house last week with their names on it. Inside was a bag of handcrafted dog biscuits from the Finest Fetch Company. My dogs were given the opportunity to try this new treat thanks to Kimberly Gauthier and a recent Giveaway on her blog, Keep The Tail Wagging. Kimberly’s blog is quickly becoming the leading authority in nutrition and raw feeding for dogs and I refer to it often as a resource for Cody’s sensitive stomach issues.
Cody and Bailey won “The Elvis” biscuit which is made from peanut butter, bacon and banana; just the way the real Elvis would have liked it. Both dogs paced back and forth while I opened the bag and pulled out two bone-shaped cookies. They checked out the biscuits by smelling them while they were still in my hand and then waited for me to give one to each of them. [Read more…]

Are you curious about starting your dog on a raw food diet? When I adopted Cody 10 years ago nobody was talking about the subject, but since adding Bailey to our family last Christmas I’ve been noticing a lot of information about the benefits of going raw. I’ve been wondering if raw pet food would be a good fit for my pups. I was pretty sure adding raw ingredients wouldn’t be too hard for us because I already cook for my dogs in order to control Cody’s Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Cooking let’s me keep the ingredients in Cody’s food to the ones I know agree with his sensitive stomach, but I never took the leap to try a raw pet food diet until now when we had the opportunity to try Stella & Chewy’s® Meal Mixers.

Since I haven’t raised a puppy in a very long time, I had forgotten about their instinctive need to chew during the first year. So when Chewy.com asked Bailey to review SupaBoost Joint Stix Dog Treats from I and Love and You, she thought she had won the lottery.
The bone shaped treats were sturdy enough for Bailey’s “big girl” teeth and she loved chomping away on each of the four treats in the package.
It’s time for our monthly product review for Chewy.com and 8 month-old Bailey decided she is old enough to tell you about yummy Greenies Grain-Free Dental Chews without help from her big brother Cody. Personally, I think she just didn’t want to share more than she had to with Cody because both dogs gobbled up the treats.
