Spoiling Frankie


Some of you may already know that, just after Christmas, we had to get our 15 year old dog Jessie put to sleep. It's honestly one of the worst feelings in the world. We got her from the Newcastle Cat and Dog Shelter when I was 7 years old, so she'd been with me most of my life. Frankie is 12 now and we've also had him since he was a puppy, so losing Jessie was especially awful on him. He's been spoilt rotten since, and when the lovely people over at Pet Shop Bowl offered to send him a few goodies I couldn't say no. 

He was instantly attached to the Wild Knots toy from the Kong Range. Although he proceeded to pull his eyes off within 24 hours, the rest of the toy is pretty durable, being made up of rope. His favourite thing about it though is that it contains a squeak - he absolutely loves squeaky toys!

They were also kind enough to send over a few cans of Almo Nature dog food. Frankie normally doesn't touch his food until the afternoon, but as soon as we presented him with the Almo Nature food and mixer he wolfed it down. The cans aren't the cheapest, generally being over £2 per can, but the food is made 100% from human grade materials. I'm having to order a few more of these to keep him happy!

Frankie also had the chance to try out the Hills Ideal Balance Chicken and Apple treats. I think his expression in the first photo says enough about how much he enjoys these! Again, these are made with the finest natural ingredients, with chicken being the main one. They are also free from corn, wheat and soy.

Pet Shop Bowl have such an extensive range of pet products you'd find it hard not to spoil your furry friend. I'm building up a shopping list for Frankie as I write this!

  4. This is such an adorable post! Frankie is such a little sweetheart - I can't help but smile when I look at his happy face in the top photograph. I love posts like this because it's so nice to see pets being spoiled - they're part of the family so they deserve to be treated like royalty sometimes too!
