|Mommy, my face hurts from smiling so much|
I think you all remember when we got this HUGE package from Chewy.com and it turned out to be this GIGANTIC bag of FOOD. Well I can tell you, there was so much excitement at Casa de Noodles that it cannot be accurately measured on an EXCITEMENT meter. Seriously! Just look at Molly's tail! She is wagging it so fast that her tail is actually just a white blur in the right side of the photo.
And me. . . well I COULD NOT wipe that GRIN off of my face for anything. And I mean - for ANYTHING!
|Look at those SMILES!|
The idea of this project was for us to try the food for a MONTH and report back to Ms. Sydney from Chewy.com. We needed to tell her our THOUGHTS about the food. . . How we LIKED the food. . . and so on. I knew I could handle this project just fine. Molly, on the other hand, for all her tail WAGGING excitement is a picky picky picky eater and has been from DAY ONE. And our Mommys never know when she will reject a food - sometimes it is right away and sometimes it is THREE DAYS down the road. All we know, is sooner or later Molly will stop eating her food and will just sit and stare at the Mommys until something else is put in her dish.
I USED to help by land-sharking to her uneaten food and totally chowing down before any HUMAN was aware of it. AND I GOT AWAY WITH IT for the longest time. . . until the pounds I was putting on gave me away. It was then that the FORMERLY NICE lady at the humane society told my Mommy to start taking Molly's dish away the minute she rejected the food. She'd then have to GO HUNGRY until dinner time. At dinner there would be no problem getting her to eat as she would be very hungry. So that is what happened - all the while I WAS BLAMED for causing "Sweet Molly" to go without breakfast.
I am off point here. EVEN THAT did not change MISS PICKY EATER from rejecting every food brand tried within days of introducing them. Eventually she ate but slowly, reluctantly, and bitterly. And me. . . I slimmed down to the svelte PUG you see today.
|MEGA YUM! Even the cat wants to eat this!|
April 1, 2015 we started our trial of Nature's Variety Instinct RAW BOOST lamb and Salmon blend. It sure looks good and smells divine. I realize this statement messes up the sentence structure by introducing a present tense with a past tense paragraph. I just want to emphasize that NOTHING IN THAT STATEMENT HAS CHANGED!
|Now? How about NOW? Maybe NOW?|
Here we were POISED ready to embark on this FOOD ADVENTURE. Mommy made us sit for AN HOUR (Mommy note: They sit for under 1 minute. . . 1 full minute if they break the sit. . . I am not torturing them. . .) before we were allowed to SLOWLY approach our bowls. EVERYPUGGY knew I would totally love this food as I have totally LOVED all foods since I was BORN. And true enough, I ate with total abandon. . . with total pleasure. . . with total GLUTTONY! O.M.P. I could not slow down my eating for anything and next thing I knew, I was DONE and licking the empty bowl for every last flavor molecule.

I looked over at Molly's area thinking THIS would be a great OPPORTUNITY to land-shark any of that delicious product residing in her bowl. . . when I saw THIS FACE looking at me! She had FINISHED her bowl of food. She had eaten ALMOST as fast as me!
MOLLY HAD JOINED THE CLEAN PLATE CLUB
for the first time in her life!
