The other day I heard the Momz say (or mutter under her breath) something about shipping us off to Grandmother’s house for a day (just a day!). I know that having multiple pets can be trying sometimes. Maybe it’s the constant in and out (Sheba) or the endless staring at the kitchen cabinet hoping for a treat (Cricket). Perhaps it’s the sitting in the way on the kitchen counter hoping to get fed (Samantha), or even the whining for attention and/or play time (who, me?).
The only problem with this is that we don’t have a Grandmother! Ours were gone long before we came along, but I’ve heard the Momz and Dadz talk about visits to their own Grammy’s houses. I wondered what a day at a Grammy’s house would be like. With the help of some tasty treats from Merrick I got daydreaming about it….
Ahem! Sam, get off the box of treats so I can illustrate my story!
First of all, notice in all of my “illustrations” that we are wearing red bandanas. I know the Momz would make us dress up for a visit to Grammy’s.
I think our Grammy would bake us cookies, don’t you? Lots of grandmothers bake chocolate chip cookies, but I think pet Grammies would bake Salmon & Potato cookies!
For dinner I think our Grammy would bake us pot pie! It would have chicken, potatoes, peas and carrots, just like this.
Grammies have good china, right? I know they do because these plates belonged to one of my Grammy’s. I know, I know, they probably wouldn’t let the furry kids (or any kids) eat off the good china, but this is my daydream after all!
After dinner I bet we would play games. I’m going to help Grammy fill up the treat games with these yummy Chicken Power Bites (which are one of my favorites for training).
At the end of the day, Grammy would be sure to send us home with clean teeth!
For those of you who have Grammies, did I get it right? It sure was a fun imaginary day, and all of our treats were yummy!
Now the Momz has to tell you some boring, I mean important (to humans) stuff, and also about the giveaway!
The Momz: There is no doubt about it, feeding multiple pets can be expensive, and even challenging if everyone has different dietary needs. We’re lucky to be at a point now where the dogs all eat the same food…that makes things easier. My dream would be to feed them nothing but homemade food and treats, but the reality is that I just don’t have time for that. So we tried to find the best quality food we could, that we could feel safe and comfortable with, and doesn’t break the bank. We’ve settled on Merrick.
We try other foods from time to time but we always come back to Merrick. They have a variety of different foods; we believe in grain free; that’s what we feed, and we try to feed as many grain free treats as we can as well. All of the treats Luke showed you are grain free and gluten free with no corn, soy, or wheat. They are all natural and safely made in the USA with no ingredients from China. Real deboned meat is the first ingredient in all of the treats except the dental bones. I feel like it’s the next best thing to homemade.
I love it when I open a bag of dog treats and it smells like real food! That was especially noticeable with the Pot Pie Kitchen Bites. More importantly, the dogs love them all too.
