Hooray! It is my favorite month  of the year. I love October, the weather is almost perfect (we live in Missouri, so we can still have 90 degree days for some silly reason) I can finally spend more time outside without getting too hot and I get lots more walkies time. October also means Halloween!! I love all the attention I get when I dress up. This years costume is a great one! You will have to wait until the end of the post to see it.

We had lots to choose from this month. I decided that I wanted to try out some Merrick canned food, I do love their Alpine Rabbit Stew. I am getting to try out their “Thanksgiving Day Dinner”.  Human Thanksgiving Day dinners are not always okay for us. Lots of ingredients that humans use in their dinners are not good for us to have. So Merrick found a way for us to join in on the festivities without being harmful.


Merricks Grain Free Thanksgiving Day Dinner is of course grain free and contains Turkey and Chicken as well as fruits and veggies. All kinds of things that humans get to enjoy on Turkey day, but made safe for us. The first eight ingredients are Deboned Turkey, Turkey Broth, Chicken, Chicken Broth, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Green Beans, Apples. Yummy in the tummy. I love green beans and carrots, but mom usually has butter on them, which is not good for me.


When mom went to open the can up and put in my bowl, everyone went crazy! The kitties who just had their breakfast started meowing and trying to get to the bowl. I started doing my little dance I do when it is canned food day. I ran straight to my food station and waited semi patiently.


Look at that! It looks very tasty. You can see the veggies and chunks of meat. MMMMMMM meat. I went straight to the bowl and once it was set down, I did not stop until the bowl was empty and clean. I loved this food, I actually kept going back to the  bowl to make sure that it was truly empty. I occasionally give a thank you burp as my appreciation for being fed wet food. Mom says that means I need to slow down! I say it is me saying thank you! It is no surprise that I thought this was tasty, after all turkey and chicken are my favorite poultry choices!


I definitely prefer this type of food over a pate. I will eat pate, but I like having a sauce to lick up and I can eat it faster. It also adds more moisture to the food. It does not have as much liquid as other canned foods I enjoy, but has some. Which is fine by me.

Mom likes that it is easy to get out of the can. She does not feed me pate style ones as often because they are a pain to get out of the can. She likes the canned foods that easily come out of the can. She also likes that meat is the first ingredient. That is very important to her and if a food does not list meat as the first ingredient, she will not even consider it as a food for me.

She likes that she can actually see the chunks of meat and the veggies. She said there are dried peas in there, but I did not see any of them, which is good, because I do not like peas at all.

This recipe of course is grain free and free of preservatives, artificial colors or flavors. They do add minerals and vitamins that pups need to stay healthy.  Merrick recipes are cooked in their own five-star kitchen and manufacturing facilities that uphold the strict guidelines well defined by the FDA. Making sure food is safe for us is very important.

If you or your parents are looking for a great food to give on Turkey Day, look no further than Merrick’s Thanksgiving Day Dinner. It has all the components of a great Thanksgiving meal in one can. You wont be disappointed.
