I don’t know that I’ve ever officially introduced Duke on the blog, but if you follow me on any form of social media (especially Snapchat), you know exactly who Duke is (and how cute he is, amiright?). He is my ten month old (YES, for those who have been following along since we got him at 10 weeks… he is TEN. MONTHS. OLD. Where does the time go?!) yellow lab who is equal parts angel baby and holy terror. His favorite activities include sitting on laps (all 50+ lbs of him), stealing makeup from my office, eating (anything and everything- including, but not limited to, previously mentioned stolen goods), naps in front of the fire and snuggles.
My best friend works a pet store, so she brings little bags of goodies for Duke every time she comes to visit. On her last visit, she brought some sample packs of Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers, which are full of minimally processed raw food goodness that is so good for your pup. Now, I won’t lie, Duke eats EVERYTHING (with the exception of these apple cinnamon treats that he won’t touch, but I don’t blame him, hahaha)- but these Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers? He will do ANYTHING for them. Anything.
I mean, look at this handsome boy. Anyone who knows Duke knows that he has plenty (aka borderline obnoxious amounts) of energy, and posed photoshoots are certainly not his strong suit- so I feel like the fact that he was so incredibly well behaved and played the most perfect of models for these pictures is just a testimony to how badly he wanted a little Stella & Chewy’s snack. ;)
So, when Stella & Chewy’s approached us to take the Meal Mixer Challenge this month, Duke very happily agreed. Just kidding, Duke has no idea what’s going on, he just knows that these are the most delicious things he’s ever laid teeth on. What’s the Meal Mixer Challenge? Stella & Chewy’s is encouraging you to post photos and videos of your dog’s excitement over Meal Mixers to their Facebook page or on your Instagram along with #MealMixerChallenge. Be sure to include the package in your shot! They’re giving away a grand prize that includes $1,000 in Meal Mixers and a PetChatz pet cam valued at $400.
While this monkey has eaten my socks, makeup and endless amounts of my Invisibobble elastics (I don’t know why he likes these so much, haha), and while he makes it so much harder to get work done during the day because he’d rather be hanging out than watching me work, and while his fur makes a total mess of my house, and while he takes up the entire bed because he likes to stretch out… I wouldn’t trade him for anything in the world. He has added so much love and joy to my life and in doing simple everyday things, so the least I can do is give him the best of the best when it comes to his health and his diet.
Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers comes in the following flavors:
- Stella’s Super Beef
- Chewy’s Chicken
- Tantalizing Turkey
- Savory Salmon & Cod
- SuperBlends Duck Duck Goose
- SuperBlends Chicken
- SuperBlends Beef
- SuperBlends Lil’ Blends Chicken
I used to think that the Super Beef flavor was Duke’s favorite when my friend first brought us some samples and he went crazy over it, but he goes equally crazy for Tantalizing Turkey, so I think he just loves Stella & Chewy’s in general, haha. I can’t recommend this brand enough- if you have a pup, grab a bag next time you’re at your local independent pet store and let your dog take the #MealMixerChallenge!
