Happy, Healthy and apart of the Family

Thank you, Milo’s Kitchen® Homestyle Dog Treats and Walmart for inspiring and sponsoring today’s post.

Roxy, our German shorthaired pointer, turns 9 this year. That’s 63 in dog years. That’s considered an old lady. But Roxy doesn’t act old. No, she’ll run circles around you hiking and usually won't stop until you tell her it’s time, but when she’s home she’ll sleep all day unless there is a bunny in the yard that needs chasing. Dog problems?!


So how do we keep Roxy young, healthy and active?

First, we had a kid. Emerson keeps Roxy on her toes. I’m not kidding when I say they antagonize each other like siblings. Emerson loves feeding Roxy, especially treats. She’ll grab a few Milo’s Kitchen® Homestyle Dog Treats from the cabinet give her one then tease her with another. YES, Emerson makes Roxy chase her before she’ll hand it over. However, Roxy’s smartened up and has learned how to snagged it when she not looking. Which results in Emerson crying because Roxy got her treat. Is this what it’s like to have two kids?



Second, we try on to walk Roxy 3-4 miles at least 5 days a week. It’s hard during winter months, but now that it’s summer -- game on!



Third, a healthy diet. We eat healthily so why wouldn’t we feed Roxy food/treats that are made with real chicken, beef or duck as the #1 ingredient. Milo’s Kitchen® Homestyle Dog Treats look like jerky, sausage slices, and meatballs. Nothing says "I love you" more than something made with love and care. While Roxy’s favorite is Milo’s Kitchen® Chicken Recipe with Wild Rice & Spring Vegetables and Milo’s Kitchen® Beef Recipe with Real Brisket & Garden Vegetables each one’s made totally free of artificial flavors or colors and each one produced right here in the USA. They believe dogs deserve treats made with the same quality of ingredients and care that we want in for our food.



Lastly, a lot of love and snuggles because, after all, our dogs are family. And they deserve to be treated like family.



Psst: Pick a bag (or two) the next time you’re at Walmart... Just saying.
