The heat is on! It certainly feels like summer even though we have not quite gotten there yet. Walkies are still reserved for nicer days or late nights. Can’t we just skip summer and go straight to fall? I like fall. I have been staying inside where it is cool and enjoying a frozen Kong or two. I really like all the things that can go inside a Kong, it shakes up the day a bit. Why can’t it be that way with my food? A girl needs some variety!

Chewy to the rescue! This month they offered so many different things to try out. I saw some meal mixers that would make my everyday kibble a little more amazing. Don’t get me wrong, I love my food. It is the best. I just want a little something extra here and there.

I picked out Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers. It comes in Chicken, Beef, Turkey, Lamb, and Salmon & Cod. I picked out Chicken. It is my favorite protein after all.

The meal mixer can be fed on its own or mixed up in your regular kibble. I like things mixed up in my food, so we went that route. The amount that you mix into your dry or wet food depends on the size of the pup. I am 55 lbs. Dogs that are over 40 pounds get 3 or more scoops a day. Mom decided to give me a scoop and a half in my bowl of food. She also lessened the amount of food she gave me to compensate the mixer that was added.

The meal mixers is a raw food that is freeze dried. They freeze dry the food by using a cold process that makes sure any bacteria will not survive. How can they be sure of that? Well they test every batch and you can even look up the results of that testing online by inputting the lot number on their website. We checked our lot number and saw that it tested negative for all those yucky things that they recall dog food for. (e coli, listeria, and salmonella)  They sure do care about us pups!

Mom let me have a few nuggets to see what I thought.  They sure looked good and I needed to taste a nugget or two to make sure that it was Lily approved.

I like that the nuggets are a fairly good size. They tasted amazing! I wanted more, but mom said I would have to wait until meal time. That sure was hard. I could see the bag, but she would not open it up until it was meal time.

If you do choose to feed this as a complete meal, you can add water to the meal mixer. If you choose to feed this dry, then make sure we have plenty of water near by. At the Lily hut, we have what mom calls the “water station”. It has bowls for everyone. Each of the kitties and I can all drink water at the same time. Fresh water is very important to have available at all times.

It was FINALLY time to mix up the Meal Mixers and my food together and see what I thought. I did not scarf it down, but that was for a very good reason. I was trying to pick out the freeze dried nuggets and eat the kibble last! I made sure all the Meal Mixer nuggets were consumed before I ate my regular food. It was so tasty.  It was like I was getting some tasty hors d’oeuvres while eating the main dish. Best of both worlds!

When it got to dinner time, mom let me have just the nuggets for dinner! It was the best thing ever. I was confused at first, she had to tell me it was okay to eat just the bits without any kibble. I was not expecting her to let me have just the nuggets, since I am so used to having kibble. I ate every single bite and did not stop until the bowl was empty and clean.
