Hi Pups, can you tell us a little bit about yourselves?
I’ll speak for everybody in the pack because I consider myself to be the alpha dog. My name is Bridget and I am a nine-year-old Pomeranian. This is my daughter Britney. She’s seven years old and also a Pomeranian, like me. Kobuck is the youngest member of the pack. He is a two-year-old Alaskan Malamute and he weighs about 150 pounds. We are all really great friends and take care of each other every day. Kobuck is our protector and he always makes sure that us little dogs are safe and sound. He loves us very much.
When did you first discover the benefits of eating nourishing foods?
Our mommy is a Nutritional Therapist so we’ve always been aware of the benefits of healthy foods since we first started living with her. She taught us about how a lot of the conventional dog food sold at pet stores has added ingredients that really aren’t good for our little bodies. Our mommy has gone out of her way to make sure the food we eat and the treats she gives us are packed with nutrients to help us look and feel our best. Our favorite ingredient that she uses in our treats is Green Nutritionals Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina
Why do you love Green Nutritionals Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina?
We all love this delicious green powder. It tastes really nice to us! I know that our mommy likes to add it to our treats and food because it contains an abundance of nutrients like vitamin K, B vitamins, potassium, protein and essential fatty acids. It also contains natural anti-inflammatory properties which helps me out because I am getting older and sometimes my joints ache. Green Nutritionals Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina is grown without any chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and GMO ingredients so that makes my mommy feel comfortable in giving it to us dogs.
What’s your favorite healthy food that you cannot do without?
Our mommy recently made a batch of homemade treats for us (link to video) and it is our new favorite snack! It contains a variety of ingredients that help us look and feel our best. For example, it had oats which are full of fiber, bananas for potassium, and peanut butter for protein. These treats also have our favorite ingredient, Green Nutritionals Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina! It is important to note that while a lot of these ingredients have benefits for dogs, they should be fed to us in moderation. When it comes to peanut butter, make sure it doesn’t contain any Xylitol which can cause issues with the blood sugar levels in dogs. Or you can use Coconut Oil instead which has an abundance of healthy fatty acids, great for our shiny coats and healthy skin. When in doubt, always consult a Veterinarian.
How do you spend your days?
I’m getting older so I am not as active as I used to be. I still like to go for car rides and short walks around the block. Britney and Kobuck go on big walks with Mommy every day. We also like to go to the dog park from time-to-time. In our spare time, we enjoy camping and going on road trips. Our parents recently took us to Las Vegas and we had fun looking at all of the bright lights along the main strip.
Do you have anything else that you would like to share with us?
Our Mommy recently got married to our Daddy and we were invited to their wedding. It was a small ceremony located right down the street from our house. We got to come to the reception and take lots of pictures with our parents. It made us happy that we were included in their special day.
