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 Kong

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

Healthy snacks from Boxtera! Enter to win your own!

February 28, 2014

I am a habitual snacker. I forego meals often and snack instead. The problem with that is that I often am not eating healthy snacks. Boxtera Snacks are changing that and I am not the only one excited about it. My kids were so excited when I told them the box that came in the mail was full of snacks that we could eat! We received the following in our Boxtera delivery: Banana Ribbons Mango Chews Honey Almond Crunch Wasabi Bean Medley BBQ Banana Chips We’ve broken into the bags (resealable!) and tried these snacks and I have to say that I am impressed. The box offers sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and savory flavors so there is something for everyone. My personal favorite is the […]
