Foodie Friday! I have Frosty Paws!

Happy Furday everyone! It’s Dakota! Not only do I have “Frosty Paws” from our bitter and SNOWY Michigan weather, I was the LUCKY WINNER of a great give-away over at one of my favorite blogs, Dog Tested Mother Approved, a blog where they share “dog product reviews, tips and ideas” or, as they like to say, “the Tried and Chewed”. If you aren’t familiar with them, please check them out!

My actual winnings!!

So what exactly did I win?

TWO coupons for a

FREE box of Frosty Paws by Purina

And a “Frosty Mascot” toy!

(TOY IS NOT  SUITABLE FOR DOGS)

Now, I have to tell you a funny story. Mom was at  the store last week and while she was looking for something decadent to  indulge in stuff her face with  for the Super Bowl, she stumbled upon the Frosty Paws in the human ice cream section! Of course she didn’t have her coupons with her, so she figured while she saw them in front of her face, rather than wait, she would buy a package for me. We hear Frosty Paws comes in peanut butter flavor and vanilla, Mom only saw the vanilla at our store, so she bought that one.

Mom decided that I could have my Frosty Paws while she and Dad were enjoying pigging out on their frozen yogurt.

WARNING!!! If you are a dog that inhales his food like I do, Mom has a warning for you! Be sure to thaw your Frosty Paws enough that you can mash it up in a bowl. WHY? Guess what I did??  Mom and Dad took the frozen treat out of the cardboard container and put it in my bowl, without thawing it a bit or mashing it up. Mom thought I would gingerly lick or nibble on it. Mom apparently forgot who she was talking about. I GRABBED THE ENTIRE BLOCK of frozen treat and ran while clenching the entire block between my teeth! I did my best showdog- lineage- prance around the living room, all the while STILL holding the frozen block of Frosty Paws with my teeth. I LOVED it so much that I had to take it to my special hide out under the dining room table where no human hands can reach me! Mom was screaming about how I would mess the carpet and Dad kept saying “Do you believe what he just did!!??” The best part? They never got it on video because I was too quick for them!

I ate that baby up AND licked every bit up from Mom’s beloved oriental fake rug!

Yeah, I know it is freezing cold in many places in the U.S., but join me in a delightful daydream. It’s mid-August, the “dog days of summer” and you are one panting hot dog! Let Frosty Paws transport you back to those days with its cold, delicious and tasty goodness!! Doesn’t matter if it is freezing cold out or boiling hot. I love Frosty Paws by Purina so much that I can eat them ANY TIME! When I do, it reminds me of this:

Thanks Dog Tested Mother Approved for such a great give-away!

Tillman’s Treats By Natural Balance Compliments Of Mr.Chewy!!

Hi everyone! It’s Dakota, and today I am taking over MY blog to tell you about something delicious that I have wanted to tell you about for quite some time.

Mom and I were excited a few months back when we were contacted by Mr.Chewy (the online go-to for many of your pet’s needs such as dog and cat food and treats,  pet health products, etc.!). My brother, Cody had been contacted by Mr.Chewy last year and he was so happy that he blogged about his experience.

Now it’s MY turn!

For my review, I was one of a few lucky dogs who were chosen to taste a super delicious treat! Tillman’s Treats made by Natural Balance Pet Foods. Oh My Dog they are delicious! I gobbled them up so fast that I was too fast for Mom to take a photo of me enjoying them!

See Tillman on the package? Mom was so bummed because he was at BlogPaws and because Mom was sick she never got to meet him!

For those of you that may not know, Natural Balance Pet Foods was co-founded by Dick Van Patten who just happened to be the “Dad” , (Tom Bradford) on the cool TV show Eight is Enough. Mom watched that show all the time when she was in college back in the Stone Age, but I digress…

When Patten and his partners started Natural Balance in 1989 their goal was to create a pet food based on sound scientific principles, not marketing hype.  Their goal was to create a line of pet food that will “nourish your dog or cat through every stage of  life.”

Natural Balance Food Facts:

  • Natural Balance products provide all-natural, complete, and balanced nutrition.
  • They are used and respected worldwide by top trainers, breeders, veterinarians and kennels.
  • They contain no corn, soy, wheat, artificial flavors or colors.

You can read all about their products here.

In addition to their dry and canned pet food (which I did not try), Natural Balance offers a full range of healthy treats! You can choose from the soft snack that I had, Tillman’s Chicken and Veggie Training Tips,

 

or the oven-baked crunch of Turkey, Oats & Cranberry Healthy Bones. They have ya covered!

The cool part is Mr.Chewy offers the full line of Natural Balance food and treats for both dogs and cats, and they deliver directly to your doorstep!!  Kinda like ordering a pizza eh? From my pawsonal experience Mr.Chewy delivers so darned fast that he is ALMOST as fast as the pizza guy….almost! He runs a good close second!

If you want some deliciousness in your world and I KNOW that you do…start tapping that keyboard and visit Mr.Chewy NOW!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota

I would like to thank Mr.Chewy for giving me the opportunity to taste these delicious treats!! In full disclosure. I was not compensated monetarily for this post. I was given treat samples to taste/review. I did not try the Natural Balance  dog food.
