Give Your Dog A Loving Nudge With Nudges Wholesome Dog Treats-#NudgeThemBack

#NudgeThemBack #CollectiveBias

nudge collage treats

We love our dogs, they are more than pets to us, they are family members.  We have three dogs and they are each very unique in personality and size.  Delilah is our big dog, a purebred American Bulldog and a loyal protector.  Delilah will watch the kids and if any animal or person tries to harm them, they won’t live to tell the tale.  As parents we feel blessed to have a dog that will protect our kids, it makes us feel great to know she’s around since we live out in the country.

Next, we have Zoey, our West Highland White Terrier.  Zoey is always there to “help” with any project.  She is also a fearless protector of our family and our home.  In typical terrier fashion she will be tenacious and persistent if some critter starts hanging around that should not be.  This is not always a great thing, a couple of weeks ago she had it out with a skunk and she was on the losing end.  Those skunks have an unfair advantage!

Last but not least we have tiny Sassafras (Sassy), our Maltese.   Sassy is a sweetheart who does not understand she is tiny.  If the other dogs go off to bark at some intruder, she will go right with them and give it her all.  Her spirit is much bigger than her stature.

The way we love our dogs, we want nothing but the best for them.  We make it a priority to feed them wholesome food and treats that will allow them to live a long, vibrant life. The other day I was in Walmart and saw new dog treats called Nudges® Grillers.  The clear window package showed the treats and they looked just like cuts of steak and chicken that had been freshly grilled.  I am more aware of the ingredients in dog foods and treats and was pleased to see that Nudges® were made in the USA with only USA sourced protein! The number 1 ingredient in the treats was real meat and they did not have artificial flavors or fillers!  These were treats I could feel good about feeding our girls, I picked up a few bags and headed home!

I was really impressed upon opening them, they smelled just like fresh grilled meat and they had a similar texture. One of my young sons asked if this was okay for him to eat, lol.  I told him no, but I think that is a great testimonial for how similar they were to beef or chicken fresh off the grill.  I like them because when we are grilling outside the dogs sit and sniff and want to be included.  Nudges® Grillers Beef and Chicken treats give us a way to include our dogs in our BBQ.  You can learn more and see the full product line up at nudgesdogtreats.com

The taste tests went over great and they just loved the beef and chicken Grillers.  Nudges® also has Sizzlers in Chicken Bacon and Beef & Cheese.  The Grillers and Sizzlers are available in 3 oz or 18 oz bags.  Given our brood, we went with the 18 oz. bags.  I noticed a value size of Jerky Cuts by Nudges® that I want to pick up the next time I am in Walmart.   Check out nudgethemback.com and see how other dog lovers are nudging their best friends and family members back.  You can also stay in touch with them on their Facebook page. So tell me, have you seen the new Nudges® dog treats?   Which ones do you think your dog(s) would like the most?  If you have tried them, I would love to hear what you and your dog thought of them.

Remember To Set Your Clock Ahead Today for Daylight Savings Time. If you have to lose an hour of sleep it’s much nicer losing it to a clock with personality.  The Kit-Cat Clock is over 80 years old and still made in the USA!  Born in 1932 they are still going strong today and it’s estimated a new Kit-Cat Clock is purchased every 3 minutes.

I recently had the great pleasure of reviewing this adorable feline time-keeper.

Our black Kit-Cat Clock has a very classic look that makes my whole family smile.  The pendulum tail and moving eyes really make this clock the Cat’s Meow!

 

The Classic Black is timeless but if you want to mix things up, they make the Kit-Cat Clocks in other colors and styles.

There’s even a smaller version called the Kitty-Clock and  clock stands so you can keep one on your desk or anywhere you can’t or don’t want to mount it on the wall.  There’s also a Lady Kit-Cat Clock with Pearls and glamorous eyelashes.

Epicurean Cutting Board Review & Give-Away!!! {Give-Away Ended}

Epicurean Cutting Surfaces sent me one of their Gripper Series boards to review.  The silicone gripper corners keep your board steady and secure on smooth, damp countertops. The gripper corners are removable as well.   It is a nice feeling to know your board is secure when you are chopping and slicing.  I love that the board is dishwasher safe and does not harbor bacteria.

The cutting surface is knife friendly and you won’t have to worry about dulling your knives when you slice on them.  The cutting board is an eco-friendly product and is comprised of a mixed source of wood fibers and is certified by Smartwood to the Forest Stewardship Council standars.  Epicurean products are preferred and used by professional chefs for more than 50 years so you know they make a quality product that no well-equipped kitchen should be without.

Another nice feature of this cutting surface is that it is heat resistant up to 350 degrees so it can be used as a trivet.  This is a dual sided cutting board and is proudly made in the USA.

The Folks at Epicurean are so generous to sponsor a give-away on Mommy Ramblings.  One of our lucky blog readers will receive the very same cutting board.
