I found the BEST web site in the world!!!! MrChewy.com!!!! A COMPLETE online store full of DOG FOOD!!! I shop online and a few days later, it is all delivered to my doorstep!!! I LOVE this concept!!!!
Sunday I sat down with the computer and perused the aisles (okay pages) at MrChewy.com. Do you know that you can sort by “Grain Free” and see all of the food and treats that are Grain Free? Wow I really had a hard time choosing – Pam gave me a budget and said one item was a 30 pound bag of Natural Choice Chicken, Rice and Oatmeal. So I quickly found that, added it to my shopping cart and then I could shop for FUN stuff….
TREATS and Bones!!! They have a whole section full of dogs treats!!! You can shop by brand, life stage, and my all-time favorite “Grain Free” (only because that is Pam’s rule – apparently she thinks I am allergic to corn and wheat???) So there are a few rules under certain circumstances that I do follow – shopping for grain free treats at MrChewy.com is a rule I can live with!!! So I found all sorts of yummy sounding grain-free treats to choose from and choosing was hard!!! I read reviews, ingredients, bag sizes, prices and finally settled on a bag of Grizzly Nutreats Wild Salmon!!! (http://www.mrchewy.com/grizzly-nutreats-wild-salmon-dog/dp/35909) My reasoning:
- People say I look like a grizzly bear – Grizzly brand
- Grizzly bears like salmon – I don’t know if I have ever had salmon – better try it!
- Meets the rule – grain free!
Then I see they have my FAVORITE bones! Knuckle bones!!! I LOVE knuckle bones! Quick put two of those in the shopping cart – one for me and one for Louie – he is quicker on his feet than me so best to get him one of his own!
Placed my order, quick and easy! Then Pam came in with her questions – How will they deliver a 30 pound bag of dog food? How much is shipping going to cost? Well I could answer the shipping question – Free shipping on orders of $49 or more. We qualified in dog food alone so bingo NO Shipping charges. However, I could not answer the delivery question. So Pam calls customer service on a Sunday and she gets a LIVE person!!! Very nice lady who assured Pam the dog food would be in a box delivered by FedEx and she could add special instructions if needed. No need, we have a porch and they could leave it there. The waiting begins….
Monday, Pam gets an email saying my order has shipped and will be delivered on Thursday! Today is Thursday and guess what arrived? Two boxes from MrChewy.com!!! Pam brought them both in and immediately unpacked the bag of dog food and stowed it away in the food room. The second box, she left on the couch and we all went outside to mow the grass. When we came inside, Louie found the box and got it off the couch but Pam heard it hit the floor and rescued it! Whew! Pam had to leave for a few hours so she fed us part of our dinner in our crates and left. She has been leaving my crate door open since I have been having trouble getting up and it is easier to help me outside of the crate. Well I enjoyed my dinner and decided to take a nap in the living room and walked in there to lie down….
I could smell a familiar, yummy smell but not sure where it was coming from, until I remembered MrChewy order arrived today! I did a little searching and there it was! Sitting on the couch, waiting patiently for someone to open it! I can OPEN IT!!!! It was well packaged and arrived without any damage but the box was not Lula-Proof!!! I just had to chew a bit on the corner and voila! Treats and bones!!!
I ate all of the Grizzly Salmon treats – they were YUMMY!!!! I took the plastic wrap off both knuckle bones and ate the basting off! Best part and then I was full and tired. Poor Louie – he was stuck in his crate and I didn’t share! About the time I was rested and ready to chew on the bones again, Pam came home! Uh Oh the Fun Police arrived! I got a “Oh Lula, you didn’t….” “Yep I did! You said it was a Taste Testing, so I tested EVERY thing I could – box, paper, plastic, treat, bones. I would have tested the dog food but that was secured behind a closed door!”
Needless to say, Louie was PISSED! He sang, barked and when Pam finally arrived home and let him out of his crate, he busted out and RAN into the living room to get his share. Sorry Louie…. no salmon for you! He cleaned up the crumbs.
Well, I guess I better close this post as I need to go back to MrChewy.com and order more Grizzly treats! Those were really good but they sure didn’t last long…
