Introducing Beauregard

Wow, I hadn't realized it'd been so long since I last blogged!  I always plan to do better but then life gets in the way and it doesn't seem to happen.

Anyway, as you may know, Chico passed away rather unexpectedly last year.  I guess I can't say it was unexpected because he had cancer, but it was very sudden.  Whenever I pass by his ashes, I can't help but think of him and how much he's missed.

Shiver is not good as an only dog.  You'd think he would be, as he seems to think the world revolves around him.  Not so, though!  So I got another dog to help keep him company.  Blogville, please welcome Beauregard.  I was told by his original owner that he was a purebred Chihuahua.  However, it turns out he's really a Chiweenie.  The vet's office confirmed it for me when I called to make an appointment for his first set of puppy shots.

My mom keeps Shiver and Beau while I work.  They seem to get along for the most part, although Shiver is very jealous.  My mom named him Beauregard.  I don't really care for that name much so I call him Beau.  He doesn't really respond to either name yet.  My mom has fallen in love with him, but he's very active so he wears her out.
Something both Shiver and Beau seem to enjoy is Blue Dog Bakery More Flavors Assorted Dog Treats.  You must be asking yourself, "Just what are these assorted flavors?" Bacon & Cheese, Grilled Chicken, Natural Cheese, and  Peanut Butter & Molasses.  Chewy.com sent us a very generous 3 pound bag to review.

I was impressed with the portion sizes.  The penny is there for size comparison.  I usually break each piece in half and have the boys share.
There were several other options to choose from, but I chose this one simply because they don't use any animal by-products and they keep their treats low fat.  Shiver has heart and liver problems, Beau is still a young pup so I wanted something healthy.

Per Chewy's website, the key benefits include:

  • Premium treats with 100% pure and natural ingredients made with the highest quality ingredients to ensure they are safe, wholesome and downright yummy
  • Made with natural whole wheat, real eggs and nonfat milk, which make them low fat and easy to digest
  • Famous Peanut Butter & Molasses, Natural Cheese, Grilled Chicken and Bacon & Cheese recipes – in fun animal shapes perfect for dogs of all sizes
  • Crunchy texture is great for healthy teeth and gums and fresh breath
  • No animal by-products, artificial preservative, colors or flavors
Thank you to Chewy.com for the opportunity to review these treats.  Both boys give them four paws up for a total of eight paws.  Their only complaint is that they only get half a piece rather than a whole one.  We absolutely would recommend them to anyone looking for a healthy treat for their dog.

We received a free bag of treats in return for an honest review.
