Festive Finds on Wednesday (#ChewyInfluencer)

Yesterday, as part of's Blogger Outreach Program, the kitties around here shared their thoughts on some festive treats. Today, it's pup Astrid's turn. Her taste testing was just as festive as the kitties' this month. After all, she tried out Greenies™ Dental Treats, all packaged up in a candy cane tube.

After Astrid and I took a ride on the struggle bus during our attempts to open the candy cane...

...we finally got the festive little fiend of a plastic tube open. But do you know what happened next? This evil human made Astrid wait all of ten seconds to pose with the goods, and that was just cruel and unusual punishment.

At this point, the Greenies™ Dental Treats for dogs even managed to lure in a non-canine admirer.

If you look closely, you can see the panic in Astrid's eye. What if the tiny kitten eats all the treats and Astrid is destined to starve? The horror! Don't worry, I didn't let Astrid get starved out by a tiny kitten. I removed Tonks from the scene and let Astrid have at the treat.

So, then, what did Astrid think of Greenies™ Dental Treats? The only evidence I have of her opinion is in the form of this mildly nightmarish shot:

That really doesn't do any justice at all for Astrid's true thoughts on the Greenies™ Dental Treats. The final verdict is that Astrid absolutely loves these festive goodies. Her pouty puppy face even earned her two more after that terrifying shot there was taken. The best part is that these treats are delicious and have properties to help keep Astrid's pearly whites, well, pearly white. Astrid has actually already nearly finished the tube of treats, so she'll probably be getting more for Christmas, or before, depending on how proficiently she begs.

(Disclaimer: As members of the Blogger Outreach Program, we received Greenies™ Dental Treats in a candy cane tube in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are our own.

Have a deliciously festive Wednesday, friends!

Our Tip of the Day:

Today's Pet Diabetes Awareness Month tip is to make sure that you have your diabetic furbaby on a diet suited to them and their health. Many veterinarians will put a diabetic cat or dog on a high protein, high fiber, low fat diet. It is important to balance nutrients in a way to keep blood glucose as normal as possible, and also to help the diabetic furbaby maintain a healthy weight. Of course, when it comes to feeding a diabetic furbaby, do discuss this with your veterinarian. They can help point you to healthy food options, whether they be prescription diets or not. The veterinarian may also calculate the calories your diabetic furbaby will need in a day to stay healthy and fit, so that their diabetes can better remain under control. And, as always, be sure to let your veterinarian know of any concerns you have regarding your furbaby's diabetes and diet.

Well glad all the trouble of the opening was worth it and no kitten got your treats Astrid. They do look yummy. You all have a great day.

That is such a festive idea with the treats in the candy cane. Glad they were a hit and no kitties stole them. :) Cute drawing and excellent tips too.

Astrid, you were really giving that paw to help mom open up those delicious treats. Tonks heard treats and was in there in a second. We are happy you enjoyed them and now your Christmas stocking will be filled with them. Thanks for sharing your review. Have a wonderful day.

Chewy had such fun offerings this month! Love those gingerbread kitties...I picked up a gingerbread cat statue this year. Will have to take a picture of it :)

Well, they certainly have an interesting shape. Looks like Astrid will have nice, clean teeth for as long as you can afford to keep buying these.

Love the gingerbread kitties.

Goodness! Well, it sounds like those Greenies were worth the wait, Astrid. And we're glad Tonks didn't eat them before you did. :)

LOVE your doodle today. Sharing is caring, right?
