Mommy and Me: That’s what I’ve dubbed the weekly trek my dog takes with his moms to PetSmart® every week. Together, the three of us shop for dog food, treats, and toys. Dexter always loves getting a surprise and looks forward to the check out counter and a biscuit from the cashier. This has been a tradition with our previous Cocker Spaniel, Brandy Noel, and it has carried forward to our sweet boy, Dexter.
One of the best parts of our retail therapy includes sharing the gift of goodies discovered with our friends. Sometimes we purchase pet products for homeless pets, a shelter in need, and now we can shop for our dog’s best friend, Zola! As of July, 2015, PetSmart now carries the premium pet food, Natural Balance®!!!
Zola is our dog’s best friend, and she is responsible for guiding him along from the time he entered our household, lives, and our hearts. Zola is a dog rescued from a shelter, and her back story includes being confiscated as evidence from a drug bust. Since being adopted by a close friend, Zola has become very bonded with Dexter.
The dog food that Zola enjoys is the Natural Balance Potato and Duck L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diet® formula. She’s been eating a variety of both canned and kibble of this formula for about four years.
Thankfully, Natural Balance has premium pet food for pet parents who:
- Prefer a grain-free diet for their dog’
- A dog food with a limited number of proteins and carbs;
- Perhaps want to rotate protein sources;
- Have a dog with food sensitivities;
Surprise by a Friend
Over the years, we have been very limited by what we could give to Zola as a present. Her mom has been purchasing Natural Balance food online for the most part. Now, both Zola’s mom and my dog, Dexter, are able to purchase the Natural Balance line in our local PetSmart. Retail therapy rocks!
On a recent adventure to PetSmart, our dog Dexter, checked out the new lineup of Natural Balance pet foods, purchased a case of canned food and a bag of the kibble in Potato and Duck formula, and we set our sights on surprising Zola with the goodies.
Here’s the surprise in action:
Become a Natural Balance Surprise Friend
We had so much fun surprising Zola with the gift of good health, that we are encouraging our readers to pay it forward: Make a dog feel good: Your own, a friend’s dog, and/or a shelter dog who could use a premium pet food that will fill his belly as he waits a forever home.
Visit your local PetSmart, grab a few cans or a bag of Natural Balance, and surprise a pooch! Check out the entire line of Natural Balance at PetSmart here.
On our next trip, we plan to take Zola along with us for the ride and let her do some retail therapy. Zola’s mom now has a place to take her pooch for some fun, shopping, and to stock up on this limited ingredient diet without running from store to store.
And now, without further ado, here’s the Terrific Twosome, Dexter and Zola, celebrating their years of friendship: Notice how they’vegrown but their friendship and good health continue to flourish.
Dexter and Zola have been besties since Dex was a puppy. Well, Dexter surprised his BFF with goodies from #PetSmart.
