This post is part of a compensated campaign with Purina. All opinions are honest and are my own.
We, just like many of you, think of our dogs as part of our family.
Sally, our 80-pound lab/golden retriever mix, is 4 years old. She is gentle and sweet, and loves to put her paw in one of our hands to have us hold it.
Ninja is about 12 pounds, and he’s a schnauzer/yorkie mix. He just turned 1 in April and he is still full of puppy energy. He’s finally turned a corner with his chewing habit and he follows us everywhere.
Both of our dogs have their own distinct personalities, and if you saw them separately you’d never guess these two were best buds. They play together like crazy, and Ninja really holds his own. I guess there’s something to be said for being small and able to dart around quickly!
Our dogs also adore our kids. I think our kids are pretty great, but I could see how dogs might want to avoid them. They’re loud and all over the place. Sally and Ninja want to be right up in the middle of it all, and the kids think our dogs are just the greatest.
Since our dogs are such an important part of our family, we like to find ways to treat them – Sally’s favorite is to lay up in our bed; Ninja just needs dog treats to be a happy camper.
This week is National Dog Week, so we’re even more aware of ways to celebrate our furry family members! Beneful took a survey recently to see what the top activities are that make dogs happy (per their owners).
As you can see, 90% of respondents selected mealtime as something that brings joy to their dogs. I’ll agree with that, for sure!
To help celebrate National Dog Week – and to support dogs’ love of meals – Beneful has released a great coupon for $3 off a 13-lb. or larger bag of Beneful dry dog food, which you can snag by clicking here.
Be sure and check back throughout the week – I’ll be posting more dog-related content, and will even have a giveaway you won’t want to miss!
And again, Happy National Dog Week – go give your pup a hug!
