Good Times and Good Food #chewyinfluencer

I put myself on the bag - HELLO
American Journey I am available
to Model

This is a GOOD TIME. A Good time indeed. It is SUMMER and Mommy #1 is home from university. The weather is not so friendly this week, except the early morning which is quite fine. This week the high temps have been in the 100s so not at all pug-friendly. . . but the mornings are GOOD. Best of all, I have been trying a new food - American Journey Chicken & Sweet Potato Recipe Grain-Free Dry Dog Food - and I feel good.

American Journey, for those of you who don't know, is a brand exclusively sold at Chewy.com. And if you know Chewy.com then you know how careful they are about who they support/sell online. This is what Chewy.com says about AJ

We believe that every journey, big or small, should start with a bowl full of the best nutrition. American Journey proudly manufactures their pet products in the USA with high-quality protein, wholesome fruits and veggies, and added nutrients for a healthy, happy pet. From puppyhood to your pet's senior years, American Journey makes a meal that will fuel your pet's everyday adventures—even if he's just digging up excitement in the backyard! Available exclusively at Chewy.com.

I chose chicken because I loves loves loves Chicken. 

So TWO DAYS after we perused the June newsletter and chose our PROJECT, our box from CHEWY.COM arrived. OMD. . . we, Noodles and Molly, went KooKoo for KooKoo Puffs. I mean, Mister Box Man had just walked up the steps and Molly SANG the alarm. I soon joined in and the cacophony was deafening. It was sooo worth the time out, I tell you, when dinner time arrived and I was TREATED to this wonderful food.

Yes, I did post this photo already to HIGHLIGHT the luscious wallymelon sitting right there. And the blob on the right is the Zignature lamb that we tested last month. But right there on the RIGHT is American Journey Chicken & Sweet Potato Recipe Grain-Free Dry Dog Food. It is everything I expected it to be - savory with a hint of SWEET potato and it is solid and toothy with a CRUNCH which is so satisfying, , , SATISFYING in and of itself. I do NOT finish a bowl and begin begging for more. Mommy says that is NOT a sign that I like the food but more that it did not satisfy me. This is a fine FOOD. But here are some more reasons to try American Journey dry dog food -
  1. AJ is available in FOUR flavors combined with sweet potato - LAMB, BEEF, Chicken, and SALMON
  2. AJ is rich in protein and amino acids which lead to a healthier PUP
  3. AJ is GRAIN FREE so any of you who have problems with grains can eat this food just fine
  4. AJ is also free of CORN, SOY and WHEAT
One look at the ingredient list tells you that this food is formulated with a lot of care and a lot of love:

Deboned Chicken, Chicken Meal, Turkey Meal, Peas, Sweet Potatoes, Chickpeas, Pea Protein, Chicken Fat (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Dried Beet Pulp, Natural Flavor, Flaxseed, Menhaden Fish Meal, Salmon Oil, Blueberries, Carrots, Salt, Dried Kelp, Fructooligosaccharides, Choline Chloride, Vitamin E Supplement, Mixed Tocopherols (Natural Preservative), Ferrous Sulfate, Zinc Proteinate, Zinc Sulfate, Iron Proteinate, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Niacin Supplement, Copper Sulfate, Potassium Chloride, Sodium Selenite, Calcium Pantothenate, Copper Proteinate, Riboflavin Supplement, Manganese Sulfate, Thiamine Mononitrate, Manganese Proteinate, Vitamin A Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Folic Acid, Calcium Iodate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Dried Bacillus coagulans Fermentation Product, Rosemary Extract.

See what I mean? This is a gooooooooood food which is gooooooood for me.

For you PUPS who are watching your figure, American Journey Dry Dog Food is a scant 436kcal PER CUP! That is so fantastic. No empty calories there which means I don't have to cut down on my portions in order to keep my weight in check.

So I am giving American Journey FOUR PAWS UP. Loves it. Molly only gives it TWO PAWS UP. She'll eat it, but not too enthusiastically. She will eventually eat it in one sitting so over all she LIKES it - just not LOVES it.

Chewy.com carries the full line of American Journey foods as well as treats. The have so much variety that there is bound to be something for you.

And now for a little AFFIRMATION
