Breakfast ALL Day Long - #chewyinfluencer

Chewy.com sent this to Molly. It was well disguised.

I was on my own ALL DAY early in the month because Molly was at the vet. She needed a dental cleaning and when they did it she lost a couple of teeth. Not only that, the vet said she had several more that needed to come out. This was not good news for Molly because it meant she would have very few teeth left to eat kibble.
We had just received via email another Chewy.com newsletter FILLED with yummy things to try. Picking out something from the list is one of my favorite activities and I generally give it my ALL! When it comes to food there is no effort too small or too large. So I perused the snacks and the supplements (and toys) on the list. I was having a hard time deciding.
Then I thought of Molly being toothless and it helped me narrow down the selections. Eventually I decided to try Blue Buffalo Healthy Starts. It sounded very yummy and Blue Buffalo is a well known brand, so why not? I could have it as a topper for my meal and Molly could have it as a meal. It sounded like a win win for me. . . . I mean, US.

That does NOT look like me on that package, harrumph!
Not too many days later the package from Chewy.com arrived and we were so exuberant over it. We yipped and jumped and yipped some more. Mommy #2 could not open the package fast enough! No, I am telling the TRUTH! She could NOT open it fast enough because I was so excited to show Molly that I thought of her and her toothless state.

Molly - "Southwest Skillet with Beef and Egg. . ."
"Look Molly! Look Molly! Look Molly," I yelled! I picked this out just for you because you have a very hard time eating kibble these days. See this is from Blue Buffalo and this is a company which makes some very healthy foods. I picked this one because it has Beef, Chicken Broth, Chicken Liver, Potatoes, Dried Egg, Guar Gum, Tricalcium Phosphate, Natural Flavor, Potassium Chloride, Salt, Carrageenan, Cassia Gum, Choline Chloride, Zinc Amino Acid Chelate, Iron Amino Acid Chelate, Vitamin E Supplement, Magnesium Oxide, Copper Amino Acid Chelate, Manganese Amino Acid Chelate, Sodium Selenite, Thiamine Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Cobalt Amino Acid Chelate, Cobalt Amino Acid Chelate, Niacin Supplement (Vitamin B3), Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B5), Vitamin A Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement (Vitamin B2), Biotin (Vitamin B7), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid (Vitamin B9).
And the chelated mineral help support the immune system and the Biotin is good for the skin and coat. Not only that, it is a complete meal, like some of the raw diets we have tried but this one is a lot easier to serve because there is NO WAITING FOR IT TO HYDRATE!!! We all know how painful that time lag is. I think you will like it and it will be very good for both of us to maintain our weight and our good health. Too bad it won't help our teeth too much, that has more to do with genetics than anything else. But it helps if we are overall healthy.
Besides - it looks really really yummy and I WISH it was BREAKFAST TIME RIGHT NOW.

Do you know what Mommy did? She OPENED the package and let us all (me, Molly, and Sunshine the Cat) have a little taste of the Blue Buffalo Healthy Start. And you know WHAT's WHAT? It was as delicious as I envisioned. We all gobbled it up super fast and then begged for more. We didn't get it - of course. We had to wait for dinner time. It was a long long long wait, I tell you.

But it happened! We got BREAKFAST for DINNER and it was perfect. Who doesn't like that?

Over the course of the month I have noticed Molly's appetite improving. She no longer picks at her food nor does she stand by the bowl hoping for something different before she jumps in and eats her meal. She RUNS to her dish and GOBBLES her food. It is almost like she is channeling her inner PUG. I am so happy. Not just because she has to share this wonderful food with me BUT also because she likes it so much and it is doing amazing things for her.

So tell your human about Blue Buffalo Healthy Starts. It is good food that is good for you. Can't go wrong there. And Chewy.com carries a whole selection of Healthy Starts (indeed it carries a whole range of Blue Buffalo products) with flavors like chicken and egg, turkey and egg,  and salmon and egg. Something to please everypuggy. Check it out at Chewy.com

That looks so good Noodles, the vet told my mom that I could eat my kibble even with a lot of teeth gone, she said dry kibble helps keep tarter off my teef...mom still put liquid on mine though. Wishing Molly the best. Stella Rose
