DAY 1:

Rambo was THRILLED to have new food in the house! He could barely contain his excitement and nearly knocked me over trying to get into the bag! He loved the taste and finished off the entire bowl. Since starting the 28-day challenge, he is so much more excited around mealtime and who can blame him? With the crunchy bites & tender morsels, it’s no wonder he’s loving his new diet!

DAY 7:

We’ve been doing the Purina ONE® 28-Day Challenge for 1 week now and already see a HUGE difference in Rambo. He is so energetic now! He used to play for 15 mins and retreat to a bedroom to hide from my toddler but since starting the challenge, he’s giving my toddler a run for his money! This doesn’t really come as a surprise though because the SmartBlend® of nutrition in every bag of Purina ONE® helps support healthy energy in dogs! Purina ONE® SmartBlend® Dry Dog Food is made with 0% fillers and 100% nutrition so you can feel great about what you’re feeding your dog!

DAY 21:

Week 3 update! The differences that we see in Rambo have been overwhelmingly positive! He is more regular and his skin and coat look so healthy and radiant. I haven’t seen this sparkle in his eyes since he was a puppy. It’s been so nice having my energetic and happy dog back. I always attributed the changes in him to old age, but I see now that we just needed to switch up his food!

DAY 28:

The most convincing differences were brought to our attention this week, during our Purina ONE® 28-Day Challenge. Rambo hurt his paw and we needed to make an unexpected vet visit (not to worry he was ok! He just needed a little bandage on his paw). Our vet confirmed that his teeth looked incredible, his gums were healthy, his heart sounded great and he was overall doing great for a dog his age! At our past vet visits, we were always told that he had gingivitis and a lot of tartar build up, but there seemed to have been such an improvement this time! The Crunch Kibble and calcium in every Purina ONE® SmartBlend® Dry Dog Food formula helps support strong, healthy teeth and gums which is one of the reasons why we were so excited to start this challenge in the first place! We’re thrilled to see such a difference in such a short period of time.

After completing our 28-Day Challenge, I can confidently say that we saw incredible differences in Rambo and are so happy that we decided to try a new food with him.

Healthy Homemade Dog Treats!


Rambo has officially joined the list of men in my life who are picky eaters (lucky me), so I decided that instead of spending money buying treats that he hates, I would make him some delicious homemade cookies! It also gives me peace of mind knowing EXACTLY what's going in them... and the fact that he loved them didn't hurt either! I wish I could say that finding a great recipe was easy... but it wasn't. I had 3 failed attempts before finding 2 that he loved, but I guess good things don't always come easy! I hope your little fur baby enjoys them as much as Rambo did! I made him Crunchy Ginger Cookies and Mini Muffins!
