Tasty Tuesday (#ChewyInfluencer)

Our reviews as part of the Chewy.com Blogger Outreach Program are a bit late this time around. Why? Because this human is a bit of a flake. I thought I had emailed our choices to the lovely peeps over at Chewy, only to 2 weeks later find the unsent email in my drafts folders. Like a said, what a flake.

Better late than never, though, right? At least that's what Astrid thinks. You see, I chose for her some treats that I was more than certain she would love.

Rachael Ray™ Nutrish­­­® Burger Bites dog treats were destined to be a favorite. Astrid already loves Nutrish® treats, and she also loves beef.

What makes this momma especially happy is that these treats are pretty darn close to the real deal. Genuine beef is indeed the first ingredient, and they contain no grains, wheat, corn, artificial flavors, or meat by-products.

And these treats are not only beefy, but also soft and chewy, just how Astrid likes them.

And indeed she liked them. Not that you can tell from that winning shot, though. Regardless, Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Burger Bites get 4 paws up from the pup here!

(Disclaimer: As members of the Chewy.com Blogger Outreach Program, we received Rachael Ray™ Nutrish­® Burger Bites dog treats in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are our own. We only review products that we believe will be of interest to our readers, and we never recommend a product that we do not believe in.)

Astrid hopes everybuddy's Tuesday is just as tasty as hers!

Our Doodle of the Day:

Given what a tasty time she's having, Astrid wanted her Christmas in July doodle to represent that. So, here's a peppermint pupcake for you!

Our Tip of the Day:
We've given tips in this vein before, but it's an important one that we'll give again. When it comes to buying food for your furbabies, do always pay attention to the ingredients. Is the food you're buying produced using quality ingredients? Or, are there ingredients that are unidentifiable or that sound suspicious? Are there artificial flavors, dyes, or a variety of chemicals that sound more like they belong in a chemistry lab? By-products are a controversial ingredient, and while in the wild dogs and cats do eat more than just the muscle meat, it is still important to also do your best to analyze if and what kinds of by-products are on the ingredients list. After all, some animals might be sensitive to or otherwise have adverse reactions to certain lower quality ingredients, including perhaps certain by-products, artificial additives, or dyes used in foods these days. Though this is not a guarantee, you might be able to determine the quality of the food more or less by its price. Often, the more a food costs, the more likely it is to contain high-quality ingredients. So, when at the pet store, look at those ingredients lists, look at prices, compare foods, and then make a choice to best of your ability. Your furbaby and their health will thank you for it!

Those burgers look good enough that the mom says she might put one on a bun and try it. ;)
