Adopting Another Dog

November 18, 2011

It looks like we’ve adopted another dog. Or, should I say Parker did. Typically, our Cavalier chews his furry toys right through to the stuffing in 30 minutes or less. But, this $3 PetSmart toy has held up for one full day with squeaker, ears and tail fully intact. Parker travels around the house with him like a long-lost friend. So, I’m going to consider him part of our family – for now.

Having never owned a puppy, we took our preparation very seriously. We read a ton of blogs, online websites and books, all of which recommended products. 

Below are a few puppy products that Parker likes:

  1. Nature’s Best natural puppy dog food (we found he is allergic to corn and corn syrup)(
  2. Prime Bites natural freeze dried dog treats (
  3. WallyBed pet beds (
  4. SturdiBag Bordeaux Pet Carrier (for air travel)(
  5. Petmate Kennel (up to 16” tall and 22” long)(for car travel)(
