SCAM SHAM

Noodles the Super Sleuth

I have noticed a curious phenomenon in BLOGVILLE lately – oodles of pugs and poodles (and other assorted dogs) are doing reviews for something called Mr. Chewy™.  And it’s the same story ALL THE TIME

·         A big box arrives from Mr. Chewy™. FASTER than expected
·         It contains an amazing array of goodies from MY FAVE bully sticks to BANNED in my household snack like Snausages® dog snacks
·         Customer service is Grrrrrr8
·         The whole shopping experience was Grrrrrrr8
·         The TREATS are DEEELISH!!!!

I am gonna get to the BOTTOM of this

So I, Noodles the Super Sleuth, decided to explore this PHENOMENON called, for the purposes of clarity, Mr. Chewy™. I began my research – where else – on the INTERNET. I googled Mr. Chewy and up popped this colorful website featuring real and cartoon dogs ‘n’ cats and LOTS LOTS LOTS of different foodables. Did you hear me – FOODABLES! It was like getting a glimpse into Heaven – Pug Heaven, that is; cuz you know, for PUGS it is ALL ABOUT THE FOOD. I was getting dizzy from all of the choices so I called Sunshine the Cat over for a looksee. What she saw made her JAW DROP! More kinds of Cat Food and Treats than ever before seen by KITTY-KIND!
Look Sunshine the Cat, they have CAT food!

We were commencing to drool when I noticed a few more tabs on the site with stuff like POTTY PADS (I do NOT need these), KITTY LITTER (Sunshine the Cat DEFINITELY needs this!), and something called PET HEALTH. To get our minds off of FOOD we PAW-Strolled over to check out those tabs.


I fell OFF my office SEAT at the quantity and variety of everything from WeeWee pads to Vitamins. It was all I could do to shut off the computer and TAKE A NAP.

My senses were overwhelmed and I needed to plan my NEXT MOVE.

My next move was taken care of without any involvement by me! Mr. Chewy™ CONTACTED ME to try some of their products and review them. I was sure THIS WAS A SCAM so I laid down a series of carefully crafted TRAPS. Well, as it turns out I WAS WRONG! It was NOT A SCAM and there were no HIDDEN fees!!! In fact, Mr. Chewy™ GAVE me a CREDIT to try some product!!!
OH . . . MY . . . DOUBLE. . . DAWG!!!!
So back to the site we went. I had to keep a SHAMWOW® next to me to catch all the DROOL! It was so much fun. After about 72 HOURS, 200 pots of COFFEE, Sunshine and I were GOOGLY-EYED and no closer to any DECISION than we were when we started. Mommy walked in the office about THEN, PARTLY as an intervention AND partly to get us OFF THE COMPUTER, and told us (1) any high calorie treats were going into the contest box because both of us “ARE TOO FAT!” and (2) we can’t order anything we have tried before (so NO BULLY STICKS). That made the decision process much easier.

Some more HEMMING and HAWING ensued before we FINALLY decided on

·         Acana dog food (CUZ I ALWAYS wanted to try it
·         PureBites freeze-dried treats because they are relatively low cal
·         EVO Wild Cravings cat treats cuz it sounded good
·         ZIWIPEAK daily cat food lamb flavored
·         AN ELK CHEW because Mommy said it is good for my teeth

That’s a LOT OF STUFF huh??? And it was all FREE!!!!

We had to pay shipping because we were SIX CENTS short
of the $49 needed for FREE SHIPPING;  and Mommy said
we had enough stuff. But really, it is a small price to pay for
ALL THAT GOODNESS.
I figured that was the last we would hear from the
Mr.Chewy™ people. The box would NEVER arrive and
we spent all that time (and $4.95 for shipping) for NOTHING.

HA!!!! Again I was wrong (I am getting a complex Mr. Chewy™beclaws I am NEVER wrong . . . and yet, look at all the WRONG assumptions I made about you and you PROVED ME WRONG!!!) The order was made on April 6 – it was shipped on April 9 – IT ARRIVED APRIL 14! One week! One week was all it took for all of that GOODNESS to get to OUR HOUSE!

Me taking INVENTORY of the loot!!!!

Now we gotta TRY the stuff to MAKE sure it is UBER FRESH!!!! Hey Mommy! I am READY to go to WORK NOW!!!!!
Load up my dish! I gots a lot of KIBBLE to TEST.

(To be continued when I eats the goodies)

What a lucky Puggy you are! I'm so jealous!
If you haven't tried them before, the elk antlers are the BEST! I have several of them. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Noodles you really are a SUPER SLEUTH! Good idea to use a Shamwow to collect the drool. I've heard about that site but my 'rents blocked it because they consider it "pug porn". Sheesh. I can't wait to hear how to liked the new treats and food. I've seen those antlers before - lemme know how that thing tastes!

-Love,
Sid.
