Petbrosia and Tuesday's Tails

   Happy Tasty Tuesday and Tuesday’s Tails.  This is the day where we join in the delicious Tasty Tuesday blog hop.  Kol’s Notes, and Sugar the GoldenRetriever host this delicious hop.  As we do each Tuesday, we are also teaming up with Dogs ‘N Pawz for Tuesday’s Tails.  Please hop and share the adoptable dogs and cats featured on this great hop.
   A few weeks ago, I was the lucky winner of a three lb. bag of Petbrosia dog food
We received a custom blend
information sheet.
Love is being owned by a Husky.  She sent me the promotion code and I visited the Petbrosia website.  It was very user friendly.  I filled out a personal profile on Bentley and chose the chicken formula.  It was all very simple and in only a couple of days my box arrived with an information card and a three-pound foil bag of dog food formulated especially for Bentley.
Bentley: “Is it time for me to do my review for Petbrosia?”
Me: “Sure, now is a great time to give your opinion.”
Pierre: “Hey, what about me?  I didn’t get any of the food.  Bentley was really stingy with his Petbrosia.  Lemme interview him, c’mon Gramma!  It’ll be epic!”
Me: “Well, I suppose since you didn’t get your own bag, it’s the least I can do to be fair.  Y’all play nice.”
"I love seeing this box delivered to
our door!"
Pierre: “I got this Gramma.  You can go about your other business.  Okay, she’s gone so it’s just us.  Bentley, what did you think about the Petbrosia?  You can tell me the truth.”
Bentley: “It was delicious.  It is formulated to meet all my nutritional levels set by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles.  That makes me feel good about what ingredients are used.  My formula has chicken, Brown Rice, and Chicken Meal as the first three ingredients.  The chicken is paw-licking good.”
Pierre: “Did you feel horribly guilty eating specially designed food, while I ate our regular brand?”
Bentley: “I hate to hurt your feelings, but no, it didn’t bother my conscience one iota.  Mom introduced the new Petbrosia by adding a little to my regular food each day.  When I didn’t have any stomach issues, she finally gave me my whole 3 ¼ cups.  Of course, she divided it into two different meals.”
Pierre: “This information sheet tells a good bit of information about you.  It says you weigh 57 pounds, that you’re a male, and that you have a normal activity level.  Hey, it says here that you are still intact!  Dude, I’ve walked behind you enough to know, you’ve
"Bentley, I've had this view before!"
been snipped.  What’s that about?”
Bentley: “Pierre!  Don’t go talking about my man parts.  Dang, you’re ruining my reputation.  Besides, Mom told them that I’d been neutered.  I guess it’s an honest mistake; I do have that stud muffin look.  Let’s move on to a different subject, shall we?”
Pierre: “I see that I’ve touched a nerve.  Do you feel any changes in your body after eating Petbrosia?”
Bentley: “Well, after I received my first bag, a nice lady from the company asked Mom if she wanted another bag, so I could have a longer time on their diet plan.  I’ll admit I did feel more energetic.  Maybe you noticed me hot on your heels when we played chase.”
Pierre: “Yeah, you have seemed spryer here lately.  Do you think it’s the food?  Gramma needs to get me some.  I’ll bet that I could catch a squirrel if I ran just a tad faster.  Petbrosia might be better than new tennis shoes.”
Bentley: “Well, I’ve finished my two bags, so you aren’t getting any unless I get more!  I checked with my trusted source for all things dog food, my pals Jack and Maggie over at Slimdoggy.  Their parents are experts when it comes to dog food.  They even wrote posts of dog food ingredients from A thru Z.  They have a SlimDoggy app for people to use to measure their dog’s food, exercise, and calorie count.  It’s like a Weight Watchers app for dogs.  Anyway, we have their widget on our sidebar and our readers can input their dog’s food and info then get a rating.”
Pierre: “Yes, Gramma put our regular food in and was upset to realize it only rated a 7 on their scale.  She was proud as a peacock when the Petbrosia rated a solid 9.  It made her really sit down and do some math to decide how much it would cost to keep you in the higher rated food.”
Bentley: “I know she always gets the calculator and punches numbers, than gets that serious money look on her face.  I’m not sure what the verdict was but I heard her mumble something about it only costing about $1.77 per day.  That’s half the price of a cup of espresso.  I know that I’m worth that much!  Plus, since it’s delivered to our door, she won’t have to run out to buy more food without her make-up and in the pouring rain.”
Pierre: “Oh, I like the hardship visual there, it’s a nice touch!  What more do you know about the folks behind Petbrosia?  Are they dog people or dog business people?  There’s a difference, ya know.”
Bentley: “Hey, you’re preaching to the choir.  It just so happened that the couple who founded the company adopted two pups and as they grew, one was active and skinny while the other was a bit of a couch potato and had gotten a bit pudgy.  The mom is a veterinarian so she became very proactive in their dog’s diet.  Once they realized it wasn’t how they were feeding their dogs, Mickey and Rosie, but what they were feeding them.  They went to work figuring out the best food to feed your dog at each stage of their life.  Their philosophy is that every dog is unique and their food should be too.”
"I have a seven on me and Petbrosia focuses
on seven key pet care area.  It must be fate!"
Pierre: “Well, I know that I am unique in every way.  I wonder what they would add to my food.  They target the seven key areas of a pet’s care.  Do they know that you have a seven on your side?  Maybe you could be their spokesdog and they could write the seven key areas on your side!  You could work for PETBROSIA!
Bentley: “Hey, you may be onto something there!  I don’t know if I have enough room on my body.  The seven areas are healthy weight, radiant skin & coat, lasting energy, healthy joints, stronger teeth, strong defenses, and optimal digestion.  That’s a lot of words!  Maybe they will just want me to pose by a box and look cute.  I’m a natural at looking cute, ya know.  I’ll get Mom to take a shot of me to show them.”
Pierre: “Do we have any graphics or charts that I can put up to let our readers know the difference between Petbrosia and other foods?  Maybe a price chart would be helpful too.”
Bentley: “Of course, they have charts.  Let me see which ones we want to show.  Hmmm, okay.  Let’s show the two that you mentioned.”

Pierre: “Well, according to this, Petbrosia is the only food that has every box checked.  That’s impressive!”
Bentley: “Yep, that it is Pierre…that it is.  Now, let’s look at how much it will cost Mom to keep us in Petbrosia.  I use a graphic that Mom will relate to, coffee, or us!”

Pierre: “That’s all fine and dandy, but what about folks that don’t drink coffee.  Let me break it down into delivery sizes.”

Pierre:  “All this talking about food has made me hungry.  Let’s go tell Mom to feed us and then see about getting BOTH of us our special Petbrosia dog food.  Remember to look deprived until she signs up.  Gimme that famous Basset Hound depressed face.”
Bentley: “How’s this?”  *Forlorn look and puppy dog eyes to the max*
Pierre: “Good job.  How about my interview?  I did a pretty good job, huh?
Bentley: “Well, you’re not as polished as I am but you did great for a rookie.  Are we

ready to give our paws on Petbrosia?”

Me: “Thanks boys!  I think that y’all hit the high points.  If any of our readers would like to know more about Petbrosia, all they need to do is click on the Petbrosia name anywhere in our post.  We are also thrilled that Petbrosia has offered to give one of our readers a free 3 pound bag of Petbrosia formulated for their dog.”
