Review: Fromm's Liver Treats

So far, 2014 has not been good to Charlie. A few weeks ago, she hurt her knee. Although we've been careful with her, it didn't improve so we went back to the vet on Saturday who sent us to an orthopedist today. The orthopedist confirmed that her ACL is completely torn, and needs to be repaired. Has anyone ever tried to keep a pogo stick still? Because that's what it's going to be like after she has surgery. Eight weeks of telling a pogo stick not to jump.

"Ma, why are we at the vet, you know I HATE it here!"

Maybe it's just me, but food always makes things better, and Charlie deserved something yummy following her trip to the vet. Recently, Chewy recruited our team of expert noshers to review Fromm's Dog Treats, and the timing to open these babies couldn't be better!

You should know that I'm very careful about my dogs' food and treats. Fromm's has nutritious and delicious foods and treats for cats and dogs, and they're made right here in the US. That's particularly important to me with all the recalls we've been reading about. And, when I give my pups treats, I want them to be healthy and tasty. These treats are perfect - they're a low-fat recipe made from real liver. Plus, they're not huge! I HATE HUGE DOG TREATS! These are a good size - about the size of a dime - perfect for treating without over doing it.

I asked Charlie the Patient if should would take a break from resting her leg to give one a try:

The ears are definitely interested
"Sure, I'll have another!"

Charlie was very happy. But, who can take one dog's word for it? I had to recruit a few others, just to be sure…

Anyone want to try one? Hmm. I guess so...


Me too!

Well, there's proof that Fromm's Liver Recipe Low-Fat Dog Treats are a popular choice among the four-leggers in this household!

Now, if I can just get them to stop staring at me for more…

Sleep well, sweet beauty

On Thursday, we had to let Lucy go. After almost 16 years of love, companionship, and loyalty, her little body was just too tired to go on.

I love all of my dogs, more than anyone will ever know. But once in a while, one of them wiggles into your heart and settles in just a tiny bit more than the others. That was Lucy. From the day I saw her - a scraggly puppy with wild eyes, a keen determination, and the playfulness of four puppies - I knew she was meant to be with me.

For nearly 16 years, she followed me everywhere. When I was sick, she was by my side. She perched behind me on the top of the sofa while we watched TV. She threw herself between me a dogs three times her size if she ever thought I was in danger. And she just plain loved me, as I did her. I can still feel the softness of her coat, her kisses, and - most of all - her never-ending love and devotion.

My heart is in pieces without her, but I know we'll meet again. Rest my beautiful girl. I'll love you forever. I'll never forget you and I hope you never forget me.
