Christmas is coming (read that in a Jon Snow voice, of course) in fact, it’s only a week until Christmas Day.  It’s Ember’s first Christmas with us and while Christmas is supposed to be stressful, with some fun too, it’s obviously more stressful when you are a dog owner.  In order to make sure that Ember has the safest first Christmas, I’ve been making a list, and checking it twice. So I thought I would share with you to make sure the Christmas period goes smoothly for your dog and you.

Last year Ember was lucky enough to try some of Pure Pet Food’s Meaty Sweetie Treats.  These treats were a perfect introduction to the Pure Pet Food brand, so I was very excited for Ember to try some of their food.

Ember is doing really well recently on her current food Guru, but we have been wanting to add a little bit of wet food to her evening meal, I instantly knew Pure Pet Food was the best first option.

The food we are lucky enough to try is Chicken Dinner, which is grain free and designed for sensitive dogs, perfect for Ember as she has quite a sensitive tummy.

Ending Puppy Farms with Pup Aid

Posted in Cruelty Free
on September 2, 2018

On Saturday 1st September, Pup Aid hosted their annual free dog show in Primrose Hill, London.  The aim of this event and Pup Aid as an organisation, is to simply put a stop to the demand for puppies, which leads to puppy farming.  They do this by setting their event up to raise awareness for responsible breeding practices and promoting the amazing dogs available for rescue.   Puppy farms are unfortunately still running all around the world where both the breeding dogs and their puppies are kept in horrible conditions, the puppies are then sold in mass and the mumma dogs will go on to have more litters than the maximum frequency they should.  It’s tough knowing that this is still going on, but with organisations like Pup Aid and events like the one they are hosting, we can put an end to this horrible industry.   For more information about Pup Aid and their event click HERE.

Busters Bisquits

I first found Busters Bisquits on Instagram and was intrigued by the natural ingredients Romana uses to bake the treats. Named in memory of her beloved Buster, these treats are hand baked with love and attention in small batches in her kitchen.  I was so excited when Romana offered to send Ember a trial pack of their classic treat and their new Vegan biscuits.
