Why We Feed Our Buddy Like Family

I have written about our dog Buddy many times before on this blog and shared an obscene amount of pictures of him on Instagram but I don’t think you really know how much our dog means to our family.

As I am writing this, I am recovering from the worst flu I have ever experienced in my life and while yes, medication, lots of liquids and my husband are quite literally saving my life, my dog has quite literally saved my soul.

With every cough, grunt, and tear I have shed over the past week and a half, Buddy is right there snuggling against the curve of my legs, laying his head on my lap, letting me pet his soft fur to make all the bad thoughts go away.

He is one of the best creatures in my life, hands down.

We shop at Meijer for all of Buddy’s dog food as well as treats and toys because we always buy Made in the USA products for him and at Meijer, we can always find a great selection without being overwhelmed by choices.

Our Meijer routine always includes a stop at the in-store coffee shop, then with coffee in hand, head to the pet section to look at toys, bones and dog food and on to our regular shopping.

Purina® Beneful® and Purina® Dog Chow have been the dog foods of choice Buddy has eaten since day one as that is the brand our veterinarian suggested. When he came into our family, Buddy was very weak and sick with a high fever and cough (kind of like me last week). The vet said that this food was everything he needed (in addition to his medication) to help him thrive.

After a week of love, snuggles and good dog food, Buddy came out of his illness happy and healthy.

Purina Beneful Healthy Weight is made with real chicken which seems to be Buddy’s favorite when it isn’t Beneful Grain Free. We love it because we are giving him healthy dog food with real meat but aren’t spending way too much money doing so.

Right now if you have MPerks, Meijer’s reward program that gives you cashback for purchases, through March 3, 2018, you can save $1 off a 32 lb. bag or smaller dog chow OR $1 off any size Beneful dog food. Head here to register for Meijer MPerks or if you have MPerks, to print your coupon.

  1. Your Buddy looks so sweet Kari. Wish we had a Meijer ‘s down here, but we don’t. Love going in it when we’e up North a ways. We always feed our Leo Purina…him & the other parade of dogs we’ve had over the years.
    So sorry to hear you’ve had this awful flu that’s so bad this year.


    1. I love my Meijer so much. We have only had one here for a year and a half and I honestly don’t know what I’d do without it.
      This flu is still making my life go in slow motion. That and all this snow we are getting and the barometric pressure. Send help. 🙂


  2. This is good to know! My dog loved Beneful years ago but the vet told me it was doggy junk food. Either that vet was wrong or Beneful has cleaned up their formula ?.


    1. It’s got to be the latter because our vet wouldn’t have recommended it otherwise. But I do feel like some dog foods go through phases and changes, just like human food.
