A lot of you know that Dixie had an incident during her kennel stay a few weeks ago and had to have some stitches for a few bite wounds from another dog. Her wounds have almost completely healed, and pretty soon she will be able to run with her mom again!
Dixie is pretty much back to her normal self – happy and VERY energetic. On Tuesday she received a very special delivery…. her very first PAWPACK! She took the box right out of my hands and instantly tried to open it. This dog’s sense of smell is something else.
Pawpack is a subscription service for your dog or cat that delivers healthy, all natural goodies to your front door once a month. Dixie has food allergies, so I was so excited to find a service that offered a 100% allergy guarantee and provides only grain-free, all natural treats! Even if your pet doesn’t have allergies that you know of, they will love the treats included in the Pawpack. Dixie went absolutely crazy for everything in this month’s box.
In the Pawpack there were TWO squeaky toys – an ice cream cone and an octopus water toy, Moo Moo’s Chicken Jerky, Bear Crunch natural grain-free treats, a Whimzees alligator dog chew, and Sojos dog food. Dixie is a VERY satisfied customer. She wouldn’t stop barking at me because she didn’t understand why I was taking pictures of her instead of letting her dig in…
One of the toys was a super cute squeaky octopus that was actually a floating water fetch toy, which would be great for a dog that actually liked swimming, but was equally enjoyable for my princess. She demolished the octopus and squeaky ice cream cone, but that is nothing new. Dixie believes squeakers are evil and must be surgically removed INSTANTLY. That is her way of playing so we just let her do it. Sometimes I gather the stuffing and push it back inside the toy just so she can de-fluff it again.
I’m really excited to make the Sojos dog food and see how Dixie likes it. It is a packet of dry mix of freeze-dried meat and veggies with no GMO’s, fillers, preservatives or artificial colors. You simply mix with water and it turns into a gourmet meal for your pup. We’re saving it for a special occasion. I’m glad someone is this house is eating healthy.

Now that you are all up to date on Dixie’s life, I suppose I can let you know what I’ve been up to. It’s still 500 degrees here, so I’ve been on the treadmill this week. I did 4 miles Tuesday @ 8:25/mi and 5 miles Wednesday at 8:30/mi pace while watching Orange is the New Black. I’m really really sad that I’m almost done with season 3 and will have to wait another year for more episodes, but I’m trying to enjoy it while it lasts!
Also, I had to share this Aldi find with you guys. I think this whole thing of Gelato was $2.99 and I really enjoy walking around my house in my slippers while I eat it straight out of the container. Have a great Thursday!!
Do you use any monthly subscription services? (Dollar shave club for Thomas & Stitch Fix for me – love them both!)
Any Orange is the New Black Fans?? How far along are you with Season 3? NO SPOILERS PLEASE 🙂
