Orijen Dog Food Review

We wagged our tails with excitement when none other than world famous, Mr. Chewy asked us to take part in another review.  This time we were offered a bag of Orijen Dog Food if we'd give our opinion of the product.

You guys know how I am with food - bring it on!!  WHOOP WHOOP!  I had no problem agreeing to test it.

When it arrived at our house - promptly two days after being ordered (props to Mr. Chewy for his swiftness), I was eager to check it out.  Mom debated on which of us dogs to use as a test subject.  Can you imagine such a silly thing??  I quickly worked my wiles and convinced her that the only logical choice was ME... after all, I'm young and healthy.  I mean if the food was really that much better, what could it do to improve the health of a buff, young stud such as myself???

I trembled with enthusiasm as my bowl was prepared.  The aroma was to die for.  I quickly scarfed down my serving and did not hesitate to ask for more - which the humans denied... sheesh.

The five pound bag only lasted me about as many days.  Mom says she doesn't feel like it was enough time to truly reveal the true worth of the food, but the most evident difference she could tell when I ate it was in my appearance.  She says my coat glowed like angels wings.

I give it four paws up for taste and will add a tail up for the shine it provided my coat... I mean, come on, the girls were swooning.  Mom says the only downside to Orijen is the price.  Perhaps if I was an only child..urgh dog.. we'd be able to swing it.  But feeding the masses that we provide for, it is not a logical long term option for our family.

Thanks to Mr. Chewy for allowing us to pawticipate.  We love, love, love trying new things!!



  1. Hi, I'm so glad you did this review cause when we get the new pup we will want good quality food for him. Happy paws to you today.

  2. That food sounds interesting. Love that Mr. Chewy

  3. Sounds interesting, but it is an expensive food which is too bad.

  4. We use a similar food from "Taste of the Wild." The girls seem so healthy on it we wouldn't switch. But if we do we know where to go.

  5. Great review! Sounds like you enjoyed it! :)

    Woofs & hugs, <3

Things to Know Before Owning a Golden Retriever:

Our oldest Golden Retriever will be six on April 1st. We got Scarlet when she was just six weeks old and quickly fell in love with her. Within another six weeks, we had our second Golden, Rhett. (Rhett passed away two years ago.) It has been five (almost six) years since we have had adolescent Golden Retrievers in our home. While I have often joked about the “first terrible two years” of a Golden Retriever’s life, I had truly forgotten just how trying a Golden puppy can be - that is until now. Cosmo will be one year old in a matter of weeks, and Rose Bud is six months old. Now all of the reasons we’d joked for so long over how hard it was to survive their puppy hood have come back to me. We’re learning again - the hard way.

With that in mind, I would like to share some tips on owning a Golden. Retriever.

Here are a few things you need to know:

1. You do not own a Golden Retriever. The more accurate description is that they own YOU.
2. Golden Retrievers will chew. If you do not provide the…


So it's been about 15 months since I blogged here.  Most days instead of in depth thoughts, I prefer to post pictures at .  It doesn't require as much brain activity.  But I chose to share this here because it was entirely too long to fit in a Facebook post.  (I do have have four kids after all.)

This was a lot of fun.  I interviewed each of my four kids separately so each answer was original and not "borrowed".  I gained some insight into my kids and learned a few things I need to work on.  And for some reason they all agree I'm obsessed with my dog.  What's up with that.

Here goes..  (Connor is 8, Isaac 12, Jaden 14, and Dacey is 16.)

MOM 1. What is something mom always says to you? Connor  – “You love me.” Isaac  – “God made you special and He and I love you very much.  Precious monkeys and all that jazz.” Jaden  – “If you keep doing that, you’re face will stick like that.” Dacey  – “Be who you are and say what you mean.  T…

Boon's Sunday Sermon #6 - Little Black Dog

Today we'd like to share a writing with you by one of our favorite authors: Elisabeth Elliot.  This piece is beautifully written and describes her thoughts on a dog's 'mortality'.  We hope it touches your heart as it has ours. 

Little Black Dog by Elisabeth Elliot
It is a late October morning of glorious sunshine in New Hampshire and I sit in an antique rocking chair by the window of an old house which was once a barn. The gray rocks on Mount Lafayette's broad summit are dusted with snow, and the sky is as blue as a sky can be. All that is still green today is the evergreens. Between them are the black line drawings of the thin leafless maples, wild cherries, aspens and birches. The feathery tamaracks are dark gold. Little yellow apples hang on one of the gnarled old trees of the orchard. I keep hoping a deer will come for them.

My friend Miriam and I drove up yesterday from Boston for a few days of quiet at my brother's place. Both of us brought a load of desk …
