I’ve had golden retrievers since I can remember. My parents still have Ruby and Roxy, a pair of golden’s they rescued over 12 years ago. I’ve always loved BIG dogs; the kinds that are loyal, that will cuddle when you’re down, and actually fetch something.
Many of you have met Lily before, but here she is. Many years ago my wife and I rescued Lily working with GRRAND, a golden retriever rescue. Lily had a heart condition that required surgery and while we weren’t sure she was going to make it all those years ago, I can’t imagine life without her now.
Lily is now a seasoned citizen. At just over 7 years old, she’s still got the spunk of her youth, but after a long walk, or some intense play, she walks in, enjoys her water and then collapses. Her age is showing.
Lily happily accepted Hannah into our home 5 years ago and today, Hannah, Lily and I are headed to Petsmart to pick up some new food. Lily and Hannah love each other, they play fetch together, Hannah feeds Lily and if I’m not watching Hannah might give Lily the broccoli she doesn’t want to each.
I’ve told Hannah many times that, we as people, have to eat healthy foods. Sometimes as we age, we have to get even more health conscious. The same is true for our furry friends. They need a proper diet rich in ingredients that are right for the golden years.
Purina has the solution. We already are feed her Purina, but in Petsmart has the new ProPlan Bright Mind dog food. It’s designed to help dogs stay sharp. Whether it’s the quality ingredients, or the joint and mobility improvements, this food seems like a perfect fit for my aging puppy.
The food is designed for dogs 7 years and older and Bright Mind has specific formulas for large and small breeds. Purina ProPlan Bright Mind contains enhanced botanical oils that are shown to promote alertness and mental sharpness in dogs 7 and older. You can see visible results within 30 days.
I can’t wait to try it and see how Lily responds. She always loves going to Petsmart with us and I hope this food brings out the best in her for years to come. I’ll be sharing her progress soon!
Here’s a video we made all about her!
