I've been waiting for a package for a few weeks now. So when I came home from running errands last Friday, I was disappointed to see that I had this
notice from UPS on my door. I had missed my delivery. I had to wait all weekend until the UPS guy could come deliver my package again. You see, this package was filled with something for our new puppy Sophie.
A few months ago, I blogged about our new puppy here . One of my readers saw my post and contacted me to see if I would be interested in collaborating with The Nutro Company , try out their dog food and treats for three months (for free!!!), and blog about how our family was making the adjustment to having a new puppy (and boy is it an adjustment!).
It seemed too good to be true, so I started poking around on the Nutro website. I was impressed with their products and their philosophy. When we got Sophie we continued to feed her the food her breeders were feeding her. On her first appointment with the vet later that first week, they told us the food she was on wasn't the best for puppies, but it wasn't the worst either. Of course, I thought they were just trying to sell me the (overpriced) food that they had in their lobby. I wasn't biting.
I was contacted by Nutro on a Wednesday and on Thursday at our puppy training class the instructor was discussing nutrition. They mentioned Nutro dog food. Many of the people in our puppy class had some experience with Nutro and spoke quite highly of it. Especially for dogs with allergies or food sensitivities. I was starting to think that maybe I should switch Sophie to something different.
Nutro feels like the old adage "you are what you eat" applies to your pets nutrition as well. As a mom of three young kids, I feel that way about my kids nutrition, so why wouldn't I want that for my favorite (and only) "furry" kids nutrition too?
Sophie is literally growing as we speak. If you sit still long enough you can watch her grow right before your eyes! In the past two months that we have had her she's more than tripled her weight. I know as my kids grow, I want them to have the best nutrition possible.
So I thought I would give this Nutro food a shot.
This is the incredible package that we got in the mail. Keep reading in the next few months, Nutro has promised several very generous giveaways for my readers. I mean seriously, look how generous they were with Sophie! You would be anxiously awaiting the package too, I know it!
Who knew dogs liked apples and blueberries? These new treats are her favorite! The smell is strong enough to lure her on a walk down the street (she hates leaving our neighborhood!) and the treats are bite size enough for training rewards.
They also sent Sophie some awesome new toys. Her favorite, the Kong ball. (I'm not being compensated by Kong, however, if they want to send me any free products to try, I wouldn't complain.). Sophie loves her Kong ball! The vet had suggested that while she's teething to fill it with cottage cheese and freeze it. I've also filled it with Nutro crunchy apple treats as well as peanut butter. It keeps her busy and satisfies her need to chew.
Don't worry, I promise my blog isn't going to be totally focused only on Sophie (however, she is a big part of what my days consist of lately!). In fact, you should hardly notice anything different here at Holy Craft. There will be a few pet themed crafts in the upcoming weeks as well as a few amazing giveaways and of course some great tutorials of things (not pet related) that I am working on. Stay tuned. There are lots of great things happening here as I slowly am getting my crafting mojo back after our move.
