   A few weeks ago, I published a post about KLOUT and the PERKS they offer.  This social media-ranking site is free and very user friendly.  The higher your social media score, the more you get PERK’ed.  If the PERK is for a dog food that I’d like to try or one that I already know the boys like, I accept.  My current offer was for a bag of Purina ONE.  The box also contained a $10 and a $2.00 off coupon for future purchases of Purina ONE dry dog.

  Purina ONE is making a 28-day challenge to see how their SmartBlend dog food can make a difference in your dog.  I am not sure if I will participate in the challenge as I have other dog food on hand.  If it were left up to the dogs, they would be great with taking the challenge.  They really love the food.  Pierre has gotten finicky about his dry food.  I introduced him to a certain gravy that I poured over his regular food.  Now he expects ALL of his food to have a gravy or sauce.  (Sorry Jessica)  Instead of broth or water, I added the new food along with their regular brand.  Pierre ate his bowl without looking up once.
SlimDoggy gives Purina ONE Lamb & Rice dry dog food a 3.0 out of 5.0 that is obviously medium.  Our regular food ranks higher and I respect the rankings of the SlimDoggy App.  The ingredients listed for the Purina ONE SmartBlend Lamb and Rice that I received, the first ingredient listed is lamb.  From the lamb, it goes to brewers rice, whole grain corn, whole grain wheat and poultry by-products.  I have been feeding the boys grain-free for a while, so I’ll be interested in seeing it I notice a difference.
   Purina ONE has a dual defense antioxidant blend that works on the inside and outside of
your best friend.  It works around the clock with a blend of Vitamin E & A along with zinc and selenium in a 100% complete diet.  It supports your dog’s strong immune system and helps supports healthy skin along with a radiant coat.
   I appreciate KLOUT for another great PERK and Purina ONE for letting us try their tasty new food.
Bentley: “Mom…hey, Mom.  I know we left this review for you to do all by yourself.  You did a good job although it was kinda dry.  I always try to add a little levity to my reviews.  That’s just me; seriously don’t feel bad.  Pierre and I have been busy setting up my store.”
Me: “What do you mean you’ve been setting up your store?  We’ve had your store at the bottom of our blog posts for three months.”
Bentley: “And we are still down at the bottom of each post.  I feature items that pertain to the specific subject that we are covering each day.  Pierre thought that we needed a bigger venue.”
Pierre: “Gramma, as the business accountant, I felt we could attract more browsers/buyers with a prime spot.  Do I need to remind you that the three most important things for any business is location, location, location?”
Me: “Aww, come on boys.  Y’all can’t just up and move Bentley’s Bargains without telling me.  I have a vested interest in your store.”
Bentley: “Now Mom, do you really think that we’d leave you?  Who would feed us, scratch our belly, and clean our poo?  Don’t be silly, we would never leave y’all.  We moved to our own store tab at the top of our blog. 
And I happen to have Purina ONE on sale!  I am giving $20 off and Free Shipping the

order above $49 with the code

Pierre: “I approved of these price cuts too!  We love to help our friends save a few greenbacks.  Imagine a world where you don’t have to go stand in a long line at a discount store with 300 customers and only one register.  At Bentley’s Bargains, you’re always first in line!”
Me: “I love that idea!  Here, I’m going to click on your store.  Let me see if I can find some Halloween costumes.  Oh look Bentley, it’s that toy you wanted.  OMD!  Look at this guys!  I am so going to place a huge order today!”
The boys do their secret paw slap behind my back and wink.
Bentley: “Before we sign off, I want to wish my Sweetie Emma from My GBGV Life a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!  She is celebrating today, so everyone can go by and wish her a special day.  ♥♥♥  XXOO  ♥♥♥

  7. I am not a fan of Purina. They have never ranked well in the dog foods, although they have came up a wee bit.
    Great post though, and it sounds like an interesting challenge.

  10. We were really into Klout about two years ago, but we just don't have enough time for it these days. Last time we logged in, it had changed so much we had no clue what to do!

  11. Good call moving your store to the top of the blog, boys! You really have some business savvy. We ordered from your store a couple weeks ago, and what an awesome bargain it was!
