You say stinky, I say super yummy.

These past few weeks have been very busy for me. I ran in 2 separate 5k’s, found out I am down 0.8 lbs from my last vet visit, and got my doggy Xanax for upcoming holidays where humans like to shoot off loud booming things that make me a very scared pup. My human and I got 3rd place in her age division in one of the 5k’s! I earned a medal in a 5k and that was totally the best feeling next to chin scratches of course.

IMG_2824

Clearly the medal was for me since it has a paw on the front of it!

Onward to the important part of this months blog. TREATS! We had lots of options to pick from this month and we decided to stick with what we know. We love Merrick Pet Care products and decided to try out one of the Backcountry Jerky Treats. We were sent Pacific Catch Real Salmon Jerky Dog Treats. They are long pieces of jerky that can be broken apart easily for portion control or to use for a long training session.

IMG_2859

These tasty treats have just four little ingredients.  They are made with deboned salmon, dried skim milks, mixed tocopherols (which acts as a preservative), and rosemary extract. Per the norm with Merrick, the deboned salmon is the first ingredient. That makes my tummy happy.  We like when treats have meat as the first ingredient.  Why bother calling it a salmon, turkey, chicken, beef, deer, etc treat if you are going to have a bunch of other stuff listed first.  If it is a meat treat, then show us the meat.

IMG_2864

The salmon jerky sure looked tasty, it was kind of hard to not grab the jerky while my human snapped some photos.

IMG_2862

When I smell something yummy, it is a little hard to control myself! I finally got to grab that piece of jerky and boy was it worth the wait! It was a little chewy, but very yummy. I bit it in half and enjoyed every single bite. I only got to have one treat because they are 78 kcals per treat. That of course is my whole daily treat amount. The good part is that because they can be broken up, they can last a long time.

Pros: grain free, limited ingredient, protein has the first ingredient, made in the USA, and all natural

Cons: I do not have any cons, but my human says that are super stinky and washed her hands like 7 times to get rid of the smell. (she hates all fish, so this might not be an issue for seafood lovers) and she wishes the calorie count was lower. However not everyone is like her and is a calorie counter when it comes to food and treats. I thought they had a fabulous smell, but she says I eat kitty poop, so I can’t voice my opinion on what smells good or bad.

Merrick jerky treats also come in Chicken.  If you want more information on these treats then click here!

Plus you should totally check out everything else that Chewy.com has to offer! They have super fast shipping and have pawsome customer service. We love them!

Eating raw part duex

So earlier this month, I tried out some tasty raw treats. Now it is time to talk about raw food toppers. Raw food toppers go on top of our kibble or as a stand alone meal. Before I was put on my diet, my food had freeze dried raw bits included with the dry kibble. It was amazing and tasty. I would pick out all the raw bits first, then move on to the kibble part. Mom likened it to a kid eating the marshmallows out of the cereal first. I missed having that in my food.  They do not have a diet version of that yummy food. When I found out I could test out some freeze dried raw toppers, I said yes please!

The company that makes the topper is called Stella and Chewy’s, it is a company we have heard of, but have not tried. They make meal mixers, super blends, dog food, cat food, and dog treats. They are made right here in the USA. They get their proteins from the North America, New Zealand, and Australia. They make sure that only the best goes into their products. That is something that we like. Being picky about what we eat is not  a bad thing. It is scary how many recalls we read about, so making sure our food comes from a trusted source is a top priority.

I got to test out Grass Fed Beef Recipe Superblend. It has beef of course and a blend of nutrient rich super foods! It contains 90% beef, nutrient rich organs, and bones. Plus has lot of  fruits and veggies (no peas!!). Probiotics, minerals, and vitamins are also added to make sure we have a balanced diet.

IMG_2323

It comes with a scoop so that your human can measure  the right amount to give you. Each scoop is 75 kcal, so make sure the amount of dry kibble is reduced, so we don’t get overfed. If you are going to get this as a stand alone food, 2 tablespoons of  cool or warm water can be added to the freeze dried bits to re-hydrate.  The bits can be fed on their own, if that happens, we need plenty of fresh water available for us. Your human should wash their hands with hot water and soap after handing this product. They should also make sure our bowl get cleaned as well after we are done eating.

Raw food helps with digestion, our skin and coat, stamina and vitality, and helps out our chompers. Why not add some fun and tastiness to our already yummy kibble?

Mom showed me the bag and I sniffed and was very interested. I got to sniff the scoop of raw bits before it was added into my food. I really wanted to eat right out of the scoop!

IMG_2330

 

Mom added the scoop and I got to eating, I ate all the raw bits, then moved on to the kibble. What can I say, raw bits are really tasty and I want to eat that first.

IMG_2332

I says it is a compliment to the chef! It was very good and I even ate the freeze dried superfoods. Usually I only eat blueberries if they are in a muffin. This is definitely something that I would want added to the rotation.

I got to have this a few days in a row and each time I made sure to eat all the raw bits first before moving on to my regular food.  I really liked this and it comes in different proteins. They also have chicken and duck. For small breeds, they have a chicken version for them. I certainly would like to try duck and chicken. I love those proteins.

You know how earlier I said we are super picky about food? Well Stella and Chewy’s went one step further in earning my humans trust. You can enter in the lot number from the bag and get test results from harmful bacteria they test for. We did exactly that and our food tested negative for all that nasty stuff that so many things get recalled for. No listeria, salmonella,, or e coli was found in my bag of meal mixers. Having a company do that makes us see that they are serious about safety. We do not have to worry that later on something I ate could contain something that could hurt me.

So both mom and I were pleased with the meal mixers. I thought it was super tasty and cannot wait for my next bag to be ordered. Mom is happy that they go above and beyond when it comes to using quality ingredients and their level of food safety.

I give this four paws up! Click here to check out all the Stella and Chewy’s products that they have to offer.

Chewy.com offers a lot of other great products for dogs, cats, and other pets.They also have the best customer service! (trust me, they treat their customers like family)

Treats that the whole family err fur family can enjoy

I cannot believe it is already March! February just flew on by. It seems like only yesterday, we were talking about keeping our chompers healthy during Pet Dental month and now it is almost St. Patrick’s Day. I already have my bandanna on. Some hoomans like to eat corn beef and cabbage to celebrate the holiday, I just want snacks.

This month there were lots of snacks to choose from. I wanted to go with a very limited ingredient treat this time around. So limited that it actually only has one ingredient! We, meaning I picked out Primal Beef Liver Munchies. (click on the purple link to be taken directly to the Chewy site for these treats) It contains Beef Liver. It contains zero spices or flavorings, preservatives, grains, salt, or sugar. Nothing but beef liver. Sometimes you just want a simple treat and with Primal Beef Liver Munchies, you get exactly that.

IMG_2225

Primal treats are a very good source of protein. The bag indicates a min of  66% protein, that is a lot of protein. There is not a per treat calorie count, but the website indicates 130 calories per ounce and each bag weighs two ounces. There are a lot of treats in the bag. Mom figures under 10 calories per piece.

They are made from beef sourced in the USA, which is a total plus for us.  We prefer to buy stuff made where we live. The beef is free from antibiotics without any added hormones. That is something we really like.

The treats are bite sized and they are for cats and dogs! So my brothers can partake in some tasty goodness as well. You can see the both of us investigating the treats and seeing if it is something we might want to try. Spoiler alert, we tried and liked them!

IMG_2246

IMG_2227

They come in all sorts of sizes, so that the tiny ones can go to the kitties and the bigger pieces can go right into my tummy.

IMG_2229 - Copy

These treats are  freeze dried, but more importantly they are raw, so after your human gives you one or maybe ten if you are super lucky, make sure they wash their hands with soap and hot water.

Onward to the pros and cons from the three of us.

Mom says she loves that they are a single source of protein and they are good for both cats and dogs. One bag of treats can be given to all of us. She wishes that calorie count per treat was on the bag, but understands that the different sized pieces can make that determination difficult.

Icky kitty ate three of them in a row and would like them to be a little smaller. Even the small ones are a little big for his little mouth. He did not throw them back up like he does with most treats. So we know that he likes them and his sensitive tummy can handle them. (Sam kitty and Baby kitty are not fans of treats at all, so they were not included in the taste test)

I was very happy with these treats. I love raw treats. They are always super tasty. They usually contain just meat, so that is always a plus with me. I was not thrilled that I can share them with my brother. He should get his own treats!

The three of us all give paws and thumbs up. 8 paws for icky kitty and I and 2 thumbs up for mom.

Primal treats are welcome in this house, because they are quality treats and made in the USA. The raw liver munchies also come in turkey and pork. You can try all three and see which one you like best. You can see all Primal items that Chewy carries by clicking here.

Wobbling fun

I really love eating and sometimes when I eat, I tend to scarf it down so fast that I get threatened with a slow bowl. Slow bowls are weird contraptions that force me to slow down so I can have a proper meal without getting sick. The slow bowls are kind of annoying. It takes me forever to eat. This month, we saw that we could try out this Kong toy that wobbles back and forth. It dispenses treats or food. Mom figured it would be a fun way to have me eat.

img_1945

The Kong Wobbler has a weighted bottom and wobbles to and fro. If I smack it down, it just goes right back to standing up tall. If I hit it just right, food/treats fall out. It is amazing! The large Wobbler holds a cup of food. Perfect for me since right now  I am fed 3/4 cup twice a day.

First off mom showed me the bag of treats and then put some of  them in the Wobbler. She set it on the ground, then let me investigate. I sniffed it and realized that it had some yummy smelling stuff in there. I smacked it a few times and realized it moved around.

img_1980

img_1990

No matter how many times I knocked it down, it just got right back up again. I kept hitting it, then saw treats fall out. I gobbled them up and then kept smacking it until I knew that it was empty. Once it was empty I lost interest.

img_1987

I really liked this toy. I got treats and was able to get a little exercise. Working off the treats while I eat. I like that concept. I did get a little mad when I hit it enough times it got up against a wall and I could not get it to move away from there. Once mom moved it away from the wall, I was back in business.

The next time she let me use it, she filled it with my nightly ration of food. It took a very long time to eat dinner, but I had fun while eating, so I did not mind too much. I just kept smacking it around until no more crunchies were rolling around in the  Wobbler. I preferred this over my slow bowls. It added an element of fun to meal time instead of a lot of frustration.

On to some technical stuff. It has a weighed base, so it is pretty heavy. Mom has yet to see me lift it up and try to throw it down the stairs which I do to most of my other treat dispensers.It seems to be made of pretty strong material. The top screws off so it can be refilled. It is dishwasher safe, but has to go on the top shelf. This is not a chew toy, so make sure you are watching when we have Wobbler time.

Mom gives this two thumbs up and I give this four paws up. This is a treat/meal dispenser that I would recommend to anyone who wants some fun while eating or needs to slow a pup down who is a speed eater.

You can watch the Kong Wobbler in action on my  Instagram page here

The Kong Wobbler can be found here There are two different sizes. Small for dogs up to 25 lbs and large for dogs over 25 lbs.

Crunchy on the Outside, Beefy on the Inside

Thanksgiving is just days away and soon it will be all about the turkey, but today we talk beef! This month I decided to stick with what I knew and I know that Wellness makes some pretty good treats. We have reviewed a few of their products and have not been let down. This month was no different. I got to try out Wellness Core Grain Free Marrow Roasts. They are crunchy biscuits that have real meaty marrow inside. They are only 11 calories a piece for the Hearty Beef Recipe. The Turkey recipe is 11 calories as well.

img_1392

The marrow roasts treats are grain free, contain no by products, and list the meat protein as the first ingredient. That is very important to us. Carnivores want meat. We cannot stress enough how important it is when choosing food and treats that meat is listed first. If I wanted some veggies,  I would hit up the salad bar. It does list peas and sweet potatoes as other ingredients. I suppose that is okay since I cannot actually see any of the veggies. Down with peas! I have a huge hatred of peas, but since I cannot see them, I deal.

img_1397

As you can see the treats are not very big, so they could work for many different sized pups. I was very excited when mom held out her hand and could barely sit still while she snapped a few pictures. I wasted little time scarfing down these tasty morsels. This is probably the first time that we can recall that my treat contained marrow. I have very picky hoomans and they will not let me have just anything without researching first that it is okay for me and that the product was made in a country that has deemed acceptable to them. These treats were made right here in the U S of A.

img_1398

I am not quite sure you can see the look of intensity that is on my face. I am in full on give me my treat mode. I did indeed gobble them up like they were the last treats on earth. If I am unsure about a treat, I will drop it and lick it a few times before I pick it back up and eat it. I did not do that at all with this treat. I immediately got to chewing and swallowing and looking at mom with my best head tilt for another treat or five! I give these four paws up and hope that the Savory Turkey Recipe finds its way to my tummy in the near future.

The treats are over my 5 calorie limit because of the diet, but because I am extra cute, mom made an exception. (in reality it just means I don’t get as many treats per day because of the higher calorie count)

You can find these treats on Chewy.com as well as a lot of other great Wellness items. Check out Chewy for all your dog and feline needs.

Watch a nifty vine video here of me first trying out the treats.

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.

img_1133

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.

img_1136

img_1140

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.

img_1127

Merrick is a brand we trust to always provide food that is tasty and good for me. They have so many different varieties and are always coming up with something new. 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

Check out me chomping down on Smothered Comfort in my vine video here

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.

Who is a good pup? I am!

I had so many different things to choose from this month to test out. The kitties had quite the selection as well. In the end,  it was decided that the kitties can wait and I get to test out some tasty treats.

We  decided to test out ZiwiPeak Good-Dog Treats. We had not heard of the company, but a quick read about them ensured that it was a brand we could trust.The Good-Dog treats come in 3 different varieties. Beef, Venison, and Lamb. We were sent the lamb.

img_0721

They contain 95% premium New Zealand meat. That is a lot!!! Seriously, if a treat contains meat, it better contain a lot of meat and not a bunch of filler ingredients. Remember, we are descendants of the mighty wolf. Wolves like meat, not a bunch of things that you need a dictionary to figure out what it is. The treats list 5 ingredients. FIVE! I am pretty sure most hooman treats contain twice that.

We know that my hoomans are pretty picky on what my treats are made with and how many calories they contain. These treats contain 4.5 kcal per treat. Mom prefers my treats be under 5 calories. I am still supposed to lose 4-5 pounds. When I get my bath or nails clipped at the vet, she weighs me.My last two nail clippings, the scale read 52.6 lbs. I am supposed to be 47. The yearly visit is approaching and we shall see what the vet says. I am hoping I get to just stay at 52 lbs. I think it suits me, plus it would mean I get more of those high calorie  treats.

These are a soft jerky treat that can very easily be torn for smaller pups or for training purposes.

img_0725

They smell very yummy to me and mom says they don’t stink. Not sure what actually stinks. I think everything smells delicious.

img_0728

I thought the treats were very delicious. I got to have three in a row! They are nice and chewy. I do love a good crunchy treat, but sometimes, a soft treat hits the spot.

ZiwiPeak Good-Dog treats are grain free, plus they contain parsley which can help cure that awful doggy breath that hoomans complain about. They are also air dried which helps keep the goodness inside the treat.

If you are looking for a soft treat that is low in calories, tasty, grain free, meaty, and friendly to pups young and old, then look no further. Try out a bag of Good-Dog treats!

Supporting local businesses has never been so tasty

One day mom and dad went to buy popcorn from a place that is locally owned and operated. Dad says if a store sells dog stuff, mom will surely seek it out by using the force. Who knew a popcorn place would have treats for me??? They had all kinds of yummy dog treats. I first got to try some Peanut Butter squirrels. They did not contain actual squirrels, but were super tasty. Mom even took a small taste!! Then I got to try some Bacon Cornbread treats. They were super tasty. They are made by a local company called Porter’s Pet Pantry. Buying local supports our local community and that is always a good thing.

They sent mom a bag of their Beef Liver Slivers so I can try it out. I of course had to insist to mom that I need to write a review so my dog friends could hear all about these super tasty treats.

img_0604

Now you guys know that I can be a bit picky on treats. Sometimes I am a little unsure if I should try it out or not. Well this was not the case with these treats. As soon as mom handed me one and I gently took it from her hand (because you know if I did not, then I would be denied the yumminess) that treat was in my mouth and being crunched, chomped, and sent down into my tummy. I had to ask for another one right away. I had to be sure that the next one would taste just as good. I somehow got her to give me four treats in a row!

img_0608

img_0606

Look at that treat! It is huge. They can be broken up pretty easily, so that if you are not a nice big dog like me, you can make tiny treats for those tiny pups that fit in handbags. You can also break them up to use as training treats. I  know lots of commands, but I still need to practice (according to the hands that feed and spoil me).

These Beef Liver Slivers are not stinky at all! I know for a fact that mom had to plug her nose once just to hand me these other treats she got for me. Not these, they smell like the jerky you buy at the store. I caught mom eyeing one. Hoomans, get your own tasty goodness. pfft.

Onwards to my likes and my hoomans likes. I like that they are super tasty and crunchy Mom likes that they  are grain free, locally made, not stinky, that they only contain four ingredients. (Beef Liver, Natural Smoke Flavoring, Citric Acid, and Vitamin E), and she likes that they come in a resealable bag.

If you are looking for a new training treat, good girl/boy treat, something to spice up the ole kibble,  or maybe a good bye treat to distract us when you are leaving to make the money to that buys us stuff. You should totally buy this treat.

I give Porter’s Pet  Pantry Beef Liver Slivers 4 paws up. You can find them on Amazon or you can visit their website Porter’s Pet Pantry which has other treats and toys!

Watch me enjoy the treats here on Vine

 

We will definitely be buying these when the bag is empty or almost empty!

Ok, now go buy some!

Remember treats are exactly that, a treat. We still need a balanced diet and of course fresh water.

A Taste of fall in the Summer

As it gets closer to the fall months, I want to eat something that is hearty, filling, and makes me feel all warm inside. A good stew does just that. This month I had lots to choose from to test out. I have quite a few treats, so we decided to go with a nice canned food. Whole Earth Farms has dry and wet food for both cats and us dogs. The canned food I picked out to try is Hearty Chicken Stew, which is grain free, just in case that is important to you. The important part to us is the ingredients and the fact it is made right here in the USA.

IMG_0449

I see canned food and I start sticking my tongue out and all I want is a taste of whatever is inside. A girl needs canned food here and there because dry kibble just gets boring. Wet food is more of a treat for me than a dinner. I have been known to go on a hunger strike until a can is served to me again. It does not go over well sometimes.

Mom let me take a look at it before she put it in my bowl. Full of yummy chicken chunks, carrots, and my nemesis….peas. I am not a fan of peas. I will eat them last with the hopes that they will just disappear out of my bowl. Never happens, I still hold out hope though.

IMG_0455

Mom looks at labels way more on my food, treats, chews, etc, than she looks at her own food. If there are certain ingredients in my food, she will not purchase them.If you look at the ingredients on this food you would see that the first one is deboned chicken. Mom and dad both eat that every time they buy a rotisserie chicken! Who wouldn’t want a nice tasty chicken for dinner?  It also contains tasty chicken broth, and plenty of veggies.

IMG_0458

You can see those big chunks of chicken, carrots, and the very fibrous, but icky peas. (I know that I should really give peas a chance, but I do not like them!) If mom does not have to eat broccoli, then I should not have to eat peas. just saying. There is a good amount of gravy so each bite of food is covered in deliciousness. It was very tasty and I was excited when a couple days later, mom let me have another can.

I prefer the chunky style food over a pate. i like the chunks of meat and veggies I can see. Plus, mom feels the chunky ones are easier to put into a bowl! I gobbled this up and kept licking the bowl.Licking the bowl repeatedly is a sure sign that I enjoyed the meal.

If you want to see this pup in action eating this yummy food then click here!

I give this food 4 paws up! If you are looking for a quality food that is also priced decently, then look no further. Try out Hearty Chicken Stew. You can find this and other Whole Earth Farm products at Chewy.com Be sure to check out everything they have to offer. Food, treats, dental chews, and more!!

Having a feast down in the Bayou

Now I have never been down south, but I have heard that the food down there is delicious. This month, I saw that I could try some canned food from Blue Buffalo called Bayou Blend with real Alligator and Catfish!!! I am quite fond of canned food, so I decided to take a chance on a new protein  and brand of food and test it out.

Mom and dad are very picky about food when it comes to me. I am only allowed the best quality food out there. Who would want to eat a food where the first ingredient isn’t a quality protein?  There are so many foods out there where corn or a  meat by product is the first ingredient listed. I am a carnivore, I am a descendant of the mighty wolf!! When is the last time you saw a wolf pick an ear of corn over a nice filet mignon?

Blue Buffalo Bayou Blend has alligator, chicken, catfish, turkey, and shrimp. Who know they could put so many different kinds of proteins in one can?  They have zero by products, corn, wheat or soy. It also contains potatoes and peas. So I do get some veggies with my meat. I am a meat and potatoes kind of pup.

IMG_0115

I really love canned food, whenever I see a can in mom or dads hand, I go nuts! I get dry food pretty much all the time. I get canned food as a special treat, when someone forgets to order my food, or if I go on a dry food strike and mom pops open a can to make sure I eat (that last one is totally on purpose, I know she wont let me starve and knows canned food is something I cannot resist).

So, the day we decided to test out Bayou Blend, my ears perked up when I saw the can. I tried to be patient while she took a couple of pictures, but I wanted the good stuff! Finally the top was popped off and the smells were amazing. I was jumping and prancing around. I wanted to try that new food, but she wanted even more pictures once it was in my bowl. (my regular bowl, thank dog)

See all that good stuff? Yep, having to wait to start eating was very hard. However I am a well trained pup who knows the word WAIT. My least favorite word next to bath.  It was very tasty. I barely stopped to breathe. It was lick the bowl over and over again good. Mom can tell how much I like a canned food by how many times I go back to the bowl to see if I can lick anything else off the empty bowl. It was three times.  I had to pat myself on the back for that one. My record is 4 times, but that is for my regular brand.

This is my first time having canned food from Blue Buffalo. I am hoping to try more. I love my regular food, but having a protein they don’t make is a good thing. Variety is the spice of life right? I give this four paws up. Mom thought it was stinky, she hates all seafood though, so no surprise there. I even got to have a second can the next night. I ate that one just as fast! If you are looking to try an exotic dinner, look no further. Try some Bayou Blend from Blue Buffalo. You can find this and many other pawsome products at Chewy.com

You can watch a video of me here going all wild for some good ole southern food.
