Almost Homemade #Chewy Influencer

It's been a difficult month here at Porty Land.  Losing a pack member has an effect on each member of the household. Her sisters knew Bailey was sick but they each stop before her crate every morning looking for her. It's heartbreaking for me to see them look for her. Lola was especially close with Bailey and seems especially lost. Tess has stepped up and sleeps in Lola's crate with her each night to get her thru this change.
They all need a little extra attention now and Chewy has helped by offering an interesting food that was new to me. This is Sojos Mix-A-Meal.
This is a dry mix meant to be combined with a protein of your choice and water. The ingredients listed are sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, whole egg, cranberries, flaxseed, kelp and vitamins and minerals. The package states right on the front that it's made in Minnesota with globally sourced ingredients. It also states "nothing from China".

I chopped up some turkey breast.....
added the Sojos mix........
added water and waited.

About 15 minutes later we had a thick meaty dog food that looked and smelled good. The first thing I noticed were the whole cranberries. Often in dog food the label states an ingredient but all you see is a bit of color that you assume is the berry or carrot or whatever. In this food you can actually see  and recognize the ingredients. It looks like something you might cook up in your own kitchen from ingredients in your refrigerator.
So it looks good, but how does it taste? Well the room was absolutely quiet while everyone ate. They each licked their own bowl clean, then checked each others bowls for leftovers. There were no leftovers.

This food was a big hit with my dogs and we highly recommend it.

Chewy sent us a bag of Sojos Mix-A-Meal at no cost to us in exchange for our honest opinion.

Good for Tess. It must be so confusing to the pack, to have Bailey gone.

That adjustment time can be as difficult as the loss itself. But time does heal the heart which will always be filled with the love of and for your beloved furries.

You made us all hungry - it looks great.

The food mix looks great. I'm so sad for you and the pack, and hope that you're all feeling just a tiny bit better each day. There is still plenty of love and doggy kisses to go around the Portie household, and you're in my thoughts.
