Charlie’s Taking the Purina One 28 Day Challenge

Purina One 28 Day Challenge Charlie

I wake up every morning to the same thing. The sound of my four legged fur baby charging down the hallway as fast as his feet will carry him until he reaches my bed and tackles me with kisses. Sometimes I can hear him coming and get the sheets over my head before he tramples me. I hate the mornings but I always love that he runs to me the moment he’s let out by the boys in the morning.

Charlie is 2 and a 1/2 and very much still a puppy in behavior. He loves to play long side my 2 year old and they run around and play all day, every day. They have even been known to nap together when given the opportunity.

Lately though, we’ve noticed that his fur has a little less shine and his eyes seemed a little dull. He’s been having issues with his digestion and just recently ended up in the vet as a result of it. The vet told us we needed to toss that wet food that we were feeding him. It wasn’t giving him what he needed and was doing his dental health no help.

It just so happened that we were recently asked to take the Purina One 28 Day Challenge. When I checked out the website I loved the updates you saw from real people trying out with their real dogs and documenting it as they went. Not only that but all the differences I wanted to see in my dog were actual differences other dog owners were seeing in their dogs!

How could I not want to get Charlie involved?

  1. He sounds like a bundle of energy, fun and love. 🙂 I hope the challenge yields great results for Charlie!

  2. Charlie is just adorable! I can’t wait to see how you like the challenge. My dog is already a fan of the new dog food.

  3. OMGosh, how freaking adorable is he!? My kids want a dog sooooo badly.

  4. Christina Foley says

    Can’t wait to hear how he does and what you think of the food. We adopted a rescue dog a little over a week ago and then a few days later we agreed to foster another puppy from the same rescue. They use Purina One, so that is what we are using with the puppies … still trying to find a food that is a good fit for ours though, she seems to be itchy and gassy with the purina. Although I wish I didn’t read that Charlie is still very much a puppy at 2.5 … these two are wearing me out lol (ours is 6-8 months and our foster is 4 months).

  5. Tammy S says

    Oh he is so cute! I think it will be interesting to see how he does. It might make him feel better to be eating healthier food.

  6. He is cute, I’m always looking for a good dog food! Going to check this out.

  7. Charlie is THE cutest! I’m glad he is taking the Purina One challenge – he needs to stay healthy for a LONG time!

  11. If we had a dog, I’d want Charlie. I love the pick of him with S. I can’t wait to see how he does on the challenge.

  12. Robyn says

    Aww, Charlie is so cute! He sounds like a fun dog. My boys want a dog and a baby sister. Right now we are working on the baby sister. ..
