Hey y’all! I’m Savannah, one of my mom’s furbabies. Mom said she was going to let me and my sister Dakota come hang out on her blog because you guys thought we were cute last time. We went on a fun adventure and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! Mom said she wants to tell you the story of How My Furbabies Are Getting Their Groove Back. Whatever that means…all I know is, there’s food involved, so I’m happy.
Mom & dad took us on an adventure to Petsmart recently to pick out some new food. Mom said we’re called “senior dogs” because when we had our last birthday, we turned 8 years old. And she said that senior dogs need special food to help our brains stay sharp & focused. Mom’s kinda smart so I believe her.
This is me and my mom. Me and Dakota love to go for car rides, but dad’s truck is so big he had to help us jump up in the back seat. But once we got in the truck, we were so excited to go on our adventure to Petsmart! I heard mom tell dad that it must feel like Disney World for kids. If that means it’s awesome then she is so right!
This is my sister Dakota. She stared out the window the whole way to Petsmart. I got tired of standing up so I laid down and took up the whole back seat. It was super comfy! Since she was my lookout, I knew my sister would tell me as soon as we got to Petsmart.
We’re finally here!!! As soon as we got out of the truck, we heard lots of other dogs talking to us, telling us how cool this place is. There were even a bunch of dogs in crates outside the front of Petsmart looking for their forever home. Mom said she wished she could bring them all home with her.
Oh hang on, mom wants to tell you something.
Hey guys! Kirsten here for a minute. I have to interrupt my sweet girl Savannah to just tell you about the mission for this “adventure”. See, our girls are sisters from the same litter, and they are 8 1/2 years old. Dogs are considered “senior” when they reach the 7 year mark. Studies have shown that senior dogs can begin showing signs of less cognitive awareness, and may lack focus and have a hard time adjusting to change.
Our girls have been in pretty great health all their lives, but we want to make sure they stay that way! Purina ProPlan Bright Mind for senior dogs is packed with botanical oils that help senior dogs maintain, and even recover, more mental focus when adding the food to their daily diet.
Petsmart carries ProPlan Bright Mind for senior dogs, so that was the mission of this trip. The girls, however, just wanted to play with other dogs and check out the latest dog toys on the market!
Alright, I’ll send it back over to Savannah!
Thanks mom! So, let me tell you more about our adventure!!
We walked inside and honestly, we went a little crazy. This place was so big! And there were toys and treats and food EVERYWHERE!!! Dad and Dakota went one direction, and me & mom went another until we found this special food mom was looking for. There is an entire aisle with tons of Purina food on it, and this is where the ProPlan Bright Mind food was. We searched the different flavors and stuff until we found it.
Here, we’ll show you…
Dakota pointed it out to dad so he could grab the big 30-lb. bag. It smelled so good you guys!! We couldn’t wait to get home and eat some!
Mom said we couldn’t just start eating the food, though – there was a special way to do it. See, sometimes I get an upset tummy and we have to be really careful about my food. To make sure I didn’t get sick, mom started off putting just a little bit of the ProPlan Bright Mind food into our other food. After a few days, she put a little more, then about half-and-half, and eventually, we were able to switch to 100% Bright Mind food! No tummy issues for me!
Now, I’m not sure what “cognitive awareness” means, but I heard dad say that he hopes it means that I won’t lay around and be lazy so often. (Don’t judge – I love naps!) Mom said she’s going to let Dakota write a blog post next week to update you guys on how we’re doing with this food, okay? So I’ll keep eating it. It’s a ruff life, but somebody’s got to do it.
Talk to me! Do you have furbabies like us? What kinds of fun activities do you like to do with your dogs? We’re looking for some ideas!
