Prepping & Cleaning Your Home For A New Puppy

***SIGH*** You guys. We got a new dog.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here on the blog yet, but about a month ago, we lost our Taffy girl.

She was SUCH a great dog. We adopted her from the SPCA, and when we got her home, we discovered she was already completely trained. She barely bothered the cat. She survived through us bringing twins home. She was the happiest dog ever. We miss her SO VERY MUCH.

Yet, we are dog people. We adopt, we don’t shop. And my husband has been going on FOREVER about getting a chocolate lab, like the one he grew up with.

Introducing: Farmer’s Bounty, From Bil-Jac!

**PLEASE NOTE: While Bil-Jac’s Farmer’s Bounty DID provide me with this product to review at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**

And Taffy was absolutely enthralled!

“Um, excuse me. I can smell that and I like it. Can I have that, please?” (She’s very polite!)

Since I am a PetSmart shopper, and Bil-Jac’s Farmer’s Bounty is sold exclusively at PetsMart, I had seen this brand before, but I didn’t remember having seen Farmer’s Bounty! So I did a bit of research to see exactly what it was that I was going to feed our dog.

I learned that Farmer’s Bounty is packed with wholesome ingredients! 20 pounds of fresh, cage-free chicken are used to make every single 24-pound bag of food! As in nature, Bil-Jac includes the chicken organs, which help supply essential amino acids. They also use steam-rolled oats (the only grain in the food) to supply energy and soluble fiber!
