We haven't reviewed anything from Chewy in awhile and decided it was time to do something about that. This month the boys tried the Halo Mix'n Mores Dog Food Topper. I chose this specifically because Shiver's not much of an eater anymore these days and I wanted something that would encourage him to consume a few more calories.
We received a six ounce bag of the chicken formula to try. It's a freeze-dried topper that you add to their regular food, whether you feed them wet or dry. The amount given depends on weight, although I didn't follow that. I grabbed a handful and split it between two bowls.
The boys absolutely LOVE it!!! You'd think that I don't ever feed them the way they gobble it down. Shiver tends to be a little finicky when it comes to food. He'll eat something for a few days like it's going out of style and then he's not interested. It's been almost a week and he's still very excited for dinner time now. Chico is just as delighted.
Yes, they each had their own bowls. This was a very rare moment when they were willing to share.
Shiver and Chico give this eight paws up. I'll add in my own two hands because anything that gets Shiver eating again makes me very happy.
I received these goodies free of charge from Chewy.com in an exchange for my honest review.

I hadn't until a college friend posted hers on facebook a few days ago. I had NO clue how fun and active her life is. It couldn't be more different than mine.
If you're not familiar with the app, you take a one second video each day and at the end of the year, you'll have a chronological video diary of your life. A work friend and I joked how our videos would just be of us hanging out with our pets.
I've been feeling for quite awhile like I'm just sitting around waiting for my life to start. I see most people my age settled into jobs, married with kids, going on yearly vacations, making enough money to pay their bills and still have some left over at the end of the month, etc. I don't have any of those things. I have four more weeks left on a temporary job, I'm not even dating a guy let alone married with children, I can't remember the last vacation I went on, and most months my diet consists of cheap food such as ramen noodles because that's what I can afford.
Seeing my college friend's video made me realize though that no one is going to magically come along and give me a better life. It's all up to me. While I'll always have plenty of days where nothing much happens, I know that I need to make an effort if I want any semblance of a life. What better time than the present to do so?
I downloaded the app yesterday and have taken a video of a pretty sunset and a chocolate Shamrock shake from McDonalds so far. To keep the video from being too terribly mundane, I've written a list of ideas that I can include throughout the year. I'm actually really looking forward to coming up with something new each day to add to my diary.
I encourage you to download the app and join in the fun!
