I love how easily my doggies have been embraced by everyone I know as familia (family).  I guess it’s hard not to with how often I talk about them and share the special little things I do for them.  From choosing the best food – like the new reformulated Purina Beneful Originals featuring meat as the #1 ingredient, with no sugar added, to creating at home entertainment via this DIY crinkle dog toy.  Just a few of little things I do to show them they’re definitely top dogs in my book.

Dog chewing on crinkle toy - yoursassyself.comThe best part is that their unconditional love can easily be won over with food, shelter, and lots of love.  Heck, who’s can’t right?  So I try to offer them the best.  That’s why I was happy to learn that Purina Beneful Originals and IncrediBites had reformulated their recipes, based on customer feedback, to make sure meat is the #1 ingredient and that there is no sugar added.  And upon further inspection of the Beneful Originals with Real Chicken, I was delighted to see that on top of including real chicken as the #1 ingredient, it’s accented with avocado, carrots & tomatoes.  Aguacate (avocado)?  Sold!

  1. Yes! Can’t wait to make the toy. Time to clean out the old sock drawer. My pup is going to love this one, and I’m going to love not spending 20 bucks on a toy that’ll be destroyed in 5 minutes anyways!!
