Josie is a Pedigree Ambassador! – Frugal Novice

Josie is a Pedigree Ambassador!

See that tiny little face peeping out from under the blanket there? That’s Josie, our miniature dachshund and our first “baby” before the boys were even born. She is the sweetest dog ever – I don’t think she has ever growled or snapped at anyone. She is amazingly patient with the boys and has become fast friends with them (we think it’s partially because they tend to drop food at the dinner table). She is a snuggler and loves to burrow under blankets, especially with one of us.

Josie was chosen as a Pedigree Ambassador, and over the next six weeks we’ll be transitioning her to Pedigree Small Breed Nutrition. We started her on the food last week and she seems to like it so far! Pedigree suggests transitioning to a new food gradually: for days 1+2 we put 25% of the new food into Josie’s dry dog food. For days 3+4, 50% new food should be in the dish. For days 5+6, 75% of the food will be the new Pedigree, and beyond 7 days the food will be 100% of the new Pedigree.

I’ll be writing a few follow-up posts in the coming week to track Josie’s progress with the transition to her new Pedigree Small Breed Nutrition food!

I wrote this review while participating in an Ambassador campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Pedigree and received dog food to facilitate my reviews and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.

    I remember my missing dog. She is like your Josie, little dachshund. She was missing last year April. I have an apartment but when I left her to my brother’s, she went after me. The thing is there’s someone who ( I think ) stole my pet dog. Up until now, I haven’t got her back. Am thinking of adopting new pups for me this year.
