Disclosure: We received the product mentioned for our party. All thoughts and opinions are my own and I hope you enjoy them. Giveaway provided by sponsor. 

One thing we did before getting hung up with my surgery and recovery was get together with some of our doggy friends for a party! We have a lot of doggy friends but they all won’t get along so we had a couple parties but, let me tell you, everyone had fun and it was a great time! Even the adults had some goodies for this fun time!

We received an amazing package that included all the goodies we would need for a fun party with our friends. There were Alpo cans, Alpo treats, and Kong toys. We had bandanas, bowls, placemats, and so much more. I was so psyched to have our fun playdates.

My dogs are Sammi and Elvis and they are huge, huge fans of Alpo! They beg for the treats and when we put them in the Kong toys they go crazy!

Alpo party Elvis

Sammi really loves the canned Alpo because her teeth aren’t as good as they used to be. She sure does love the treats too though. We had feelings that she was losing her hearing but she comes running when she hears the box!

Alpo party Sammi

Our friends Bosco and Oliver live across the street. They were super excited to try the fun Alpo food and treats too. Oliver especially loved his new Kong.

Bosco Oliver Alpo

Oliver is my buddy. I have chased his quick puppy butt around the neighborhood. Now I know that Alpo treats may make him come to me faster.

Oliver Kong

Of course, Bosco was a fan as well but I think he preferred the food and treats over the Kong.

Finally, we headed over to see Aggie. Aggie is my mom’s dog and she recently lost her sister and has been very sad without her. I was happy to be able to bring her some Alpo food, treats, and a Kong to lift her spirits.

Aggie did have her spirits lifted thanks to the Alpo food and she ate when she hadn’t been eating lately!

This post is part of the HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® 2014 program by Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. and The Motherhood, who sent me a box of products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are all my own, and I hope you enjoy them. Johnny’s paper mache world Johnny just had a Cub Scout meeting about recycling and I know they talk about it often at school so I loved being able to talk to him about Earth Day. Have you talked with your children about it lately? One of the simplest things you can do is recycle and you can start right in your bathroom. How many toilet paper rolls do you go through in a week??? I know […]

So where have I been?

April 11, 2014

I know I have been absent for awhile and I want to tell you why. I have neglected this poor blog and all of you! I am starting to finally feel a bit better and the thought of sitting to write isn’t as horrible as it was so I hope to be back in full swing soon! On March 10th I had surgery… a total hysterectomy. Things have been really hard for me since I had the ablation a few years ago. It was time to do something about it.  I had to find a new doctor due to insurance changes so that was a tough decision. I loved the doctor that delivered Jemma but I got a good recommendation from a friend. I met […]
