Month: October 2016

Good Ole Southern Cooking

Ahh, October is finally here. The month where it finally gets cooler and I can go for lots of walks without getting too hot. Cooler weather means stews, casseroles, and other yummy food to warm the tummy. This month we decided to go with a canned food instead of treats. It seems that at my last vet visit, I was told that I still needed to lose weight. I should be at my 1 year weight and that is 10 lbs lighter. So the diet lives on and treat calorie amounts are being written down so that I do not go over my daily amount of 800 calories. I am allowed up to 80 calories a day of treats. My dental chew alone takes up half that!

Anyways back to the more important stuff, food that I can eat. This month I picked out some yummy Merrick Pet Care food. I love their food, I have yet to find a food from them that I did not enjoy. This months selection did not disappoint. This months choice is called Smothered Comfort. I have to say that I love all the names Merrick comes up with to name the canned food. They all have such fun names.

Smothered Comfort lists Chicken as its first ingredient, actually chicken is its first three ingredients! Lots of chicken in this food. It has a whole chicken thigh! Seriously, a whole thigh, now some of you might be a little worried that the bone could hurt our delicate tummy. No worries, the chef cooks the thigh to make the bone all soft and okay for pups. It is seriously the first thing I usually go for when mom sets a can of this stuff down. I like grabbing up the thigh and chomp chomp chomp. It is that delicious. Who wouldn’t want to have visible pieces of meat in their food?

After the super good chicken part, it also has sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, peas, potato, and blueberries. Plus all the vitamins and minerals to keep us healthy. I did not see any of the peas, so that was a good thing. I have a love hate relationship with  peas.  I hate them, but mom loves for me to eat them. It has 380 calories per can. Mom can feed me two cans of this and still have 40 calories left for treats or 1 dental chew. It is also grain free for all those pups who have allergies or sensitivities to grain. As far as i know, I am okay with grain. It is  nice to know if I were to have issues that I have tasty options.

I am more of a stew kind of pup than pate.  I like and will eat the pate, but I do love lapping up the gravy when given stew type canned foods. Mom likes that she can see the ingredients.She prefers to see the stuff they put in my food.  Seeing the ingredients listed on a can is on thing, but it is another thing when you can spot the blueberries, carrots or the dreaded peas. It makes the hoomans feel a little bit better about what they are feeding us.

As you can see from the pictures, I wasted no time getting my mouth into that tasty goodness. I did not want to stop and pose for pictures, I wanted to just keep on eating, but I was patient until the puparazzi was done and I could eat at my own pace (which is speed of light) I give this four  paws up. It got my “eat it like it is running away”seal of approval. Plus it also received the “going back to the bowl to lick it over and over again to see if I missed a spot” seal of approval.

They have so many proteins to chose from, I can eat a wide variety and not get bored. You can learn all about their food here or at Chewy.com

As always check out all the great things that Chewy.com has to offer, plus they offer auto ship, no more running out of food. Ask your hoomans first though. They tend to get upset when us pups get a hold of the credit or debit card.
