So yous all knows about the Merrick noms in the cans what is so nomilicious, right?  (If'n not, then repawt your pawrents to PETA right now!)
Well, we gets a package the udder day from Chewy and it reeked suspiciously of that Cowboy Cookout.
But it be too flat fur a can of noms.
Gibs it to me and my buddy Bailey so we can rips it open with our teefs.


You know, a dog could starve to death around here.  SO slow, she is.
Hot diggity dog!  Our snooters so knowed there be Cowboy Cookout in there but it be in TREAT form, wowser!  Chewy sended us some to try out and udder than sending me the bag of treats fur free, we did not gets any payment and we be gibbing our honest opinions.
My pal Bailey be assisting in the nom testing.

I and Love and You 30-Day Chewy.com Challenge - Report #3

We is a little late on our final 30-day challenge repawt but fur good reason.  I has been conflicted.
I has been testing this pawsome foodable "I and Love and You" fur Chewy.com.  I did receive this product in exchange fur my honest review and no compensation other than the product was given. What more compensation do a dog be needing, I ask you?
OK so I has been conflicted.  Furry, furry conflicted.  Should I stay with "I and Love and You" or should I goes back to my old kibble?  And I has to decide fast because my autoship from Chewy.com do be on it's way next week and I cannot put it off coz I be needing more kibble one way or the udder.  Or I will goes hungry.  Shudder.

My pal Bailey be here at the B&B this week so I did ask him to help me make a decision.

As you can clearly see, that Bailey be of no help whatsoefur. He did snarf down both bowls equally and sucked it all up like he be pawsessed by Vacula.  (It do not be coz he be starving - he just be a skinny little Vizsla no matter how much he noms.)

So lets me gibs it a try.

As you can see, I went for the I and Love and You furstly, then when that be gone I snarfed down my old kibble.

What to do, what to do? We did a side-by-side ingredient comparison. In Excel. This be a serious scientific study.
Yellow be exact same things, orange be almost same things.
So in the end I has decided to stick with my old foodable fur now.  With all things being almost equal, my kibble costs $15 less green papers than I and Love and You and with all it be costing to hold me togedder with the chiropractor and Ack! You Puncture, we is going to go with the cost savings.  Howefur, we did find that my coat be softer and shiner and if'n it gets dry and stiff again, we be going right back to I and Love and You no matter the cost.  And that be our final answer.  Whew.

I and Love and You 30-Day Chewy.com Challenge - Report #2

OK, so if'n you remember I started transitioning to a new foodables beginning of December.  I is repawting back with repawt #2.
As you can see, I has fully transitioned ofur and I has nommed lots of it.  OK, there do be some in my container in the kitchen but I has nommed lots of it.
In fact, a little snack seeing as the bag be right there would be nice.  Thanks, mom.
I was nomming a furry good foodable before this one so we hasn't noticed lots of changes except fur one.  Before starting this foodable, mom was thinking how dull and lifeless my furs be looking and I think she be hasing thoughts of gibbing me a *shudder* BAF and *shudder* slathering me with stinky conditioners.  She was putting fishy oil capsules in my foodables but I would bitey into them, spit them out on the hardwood floor and make big fishy oil stains, BOL.  But the "I and Love and You" foodable has fishy oils INSIDE of it so I cannot make a big old mess out of it and mom swears my furs be all shiny looking now.  She no longer be thinking a need a baf.  Whew.
When I hiked yesterday I tried to get mom to take pictures of my shiny furs but they did not want to show up fur the camera.  I tried my left side.
I tried my right side.
I tried reflecting off of my mom.
I tried my behind.
I tried in front of falling waters.
I tried in sunbeams.
I tried while nomming chickun jerky.
Well, we nefur be seeing any shiny furs with mom gibbing me hugs like that.
Well, you will just has to beleef me that my furs be all nice and shiny now.  (And I scored me a hiking patch fur hiking 5 trails yesterday.)

I and Love and You 30-Day Chewy.com Challenge - Report #1

So that Chewy.com did contact me to ask if'n I would do a 30-day challenge of a foodable that they would send me.  Of course mom hads to research it furstly.  DogFoodAdvisor.com did gibs it the 5 star rating.

With mom's thumb up, I did picks me the Poultry Palooza.
And today it did come by special delivery of the Urgent Package fur Shawnee (UPS) brown truck.
My sidekick Al be checking it out with me.
Hurry, mom, open it up before I use my teefs!
I did gets me so excited when mom taked the packing paper out that I tried to nom the packing paper, BOL!

So this foodable do look like it has all the stuffs in it a dog needs.  We be giving it a taste test now.
Sorry, Mom, I did not means to nom your hand but it was a furry gentle bitey.  Well, you dids not hear her scream, did you?  And did you gets a load of that Al?  He will not eat hims kibble if'n it not be slathered with canned foodables but he nommed this right down.
So we is going to start transitioning me ofur fur my 30-day trial.
How could I not like these noms?  Look how much chickun and turkey be in it!
When mom put my old foodables (big canister) next to the new foodables (little canister) to dish out my dinner, look what I did!  I started chowing down on the "I and Love and You" before mom measured it out in my bowl! 
We cannot switch Al ofur coz he do not be our dog, but he can has a few of the ♥ kibbles coz he do be liking them lots.
So far, on day 1, I be ♥ing the "I and Love and You" kibbles!
