Save 15% at PetSmart Through June 7!

I received a promotional item to thank me for this post. All opinions are honest and are my own.

When counting the number of family members in our house, some people might say we’ve got 5 – but that’d be wrong, because we’ve got two furry family members, bringing our total to 7. We love our dogs Sally & Ninja (that’s Sally in the picture above), and to keep them fully stocked on all they need we end up doing a lot of shopping at PetSmart. And Sally is about 80 pounds, so we go through a lot of dog food for her alone!


We’ll definitely be taking advantage of the Friends & Family event going on at PetSmart now through June 7… we can save 15% off our purchases online or in-store! You can snag these savings too – just use the coupon code JUNE15FF for online shopping, or click here to get your printable in-store coupon. There’s a coupon for goods, and there’s also one for services, too. Our dogs get groomed exclusively at PetSmart, and the Friends & Family savings are a good reason for us to send them for a little pampering this weekend!

I hope you’ll be able to take advantage of the savings at PetSmart this weekend! Your pets – and your wallet – will thank you.


Treat Your Dog to Healthy Teeth with Milkbone Brushing Chews

Note: This post is sponsored by Lunchbox. All opinions are my own.


I have to confess – my dogs have horrible oral hygeine. They never remember to brush their teeth, and friends, I don’t think I’ve ever once seen them floss. Sigh. So lazy.

Thankfully now we can trick them into brushing their teeth with new Milk-Bone Brushing Chews.


We went out of town for the holidays and took one of our dogs (the smaller of the two, Ninja) with us to visit family, but we brought our Milk-Bone Brushing Chews with us so Ninja could have something to enjoy while we were munching on Christmas cookies.



My sister-in-law & brother-in-law brought their dog, Booker, so we figured Booker ought to get a treat, too!



The great thing about Brushing Chews is that they’re a daily treat that you can give your dog to enjoy and to help them clean their teeth! These treats are just as effective as brushing, but they taste like a normal treat so your dog will never know. The nubs and ridges are designed to help clean just like bristles on a toothbrush, and the patented 75-degree twist helps clean down to the gum line, including hard-to-reach back teeth.

I think of it as the equivalent to sneaking veggies in my kids’ meals – helping them be healthier without even knowing it! Good oral care will help our dogs live a happy, healthy life.

Be sure to check out the video on the Milk-Bone page to find out more about these revolutionary treats.

Guess what- you can try these out for your furry family members with a great coupon for $2 off! Just click the image below to get your coupon.
