Maximum Tasting Minis

Bentley: “Guess who came to visit me.  It was my friend Chewy and as usual, he came with something fantastic for me to try.  I recognized the smell as soon as Mom brought the package into the house.  It had to be some of my favorite Nature’s Valley Instinct Raw Boost treats.  I followed her like a back pocket to the kitchen.  She took way too long to find the “good” scissors and open the package, but when she did…EUREKA!  My nose was exactly right. 
   It was the Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Minis.  The all-natural, pure raw treats are what dogs like me crave naturally.  I have been watching my weight and high calorie treats are few and far between.   These bite-sized pieces of wholesome deliciousness are only two tiny calories each.  I’ll be able to enjoy more of these Minis between meals for tricks or general mooching. 
   A quick look on the box shows duck is the first ingredient.  For a Mini treat,
there is a maximum of great goodies in each piece.  Besides the duck, there is turkey, pumpkin seeds, apples, carrots, butternut squash, broccoli, blueberries, and more freeze-dried into each bite.  I’m actually a fan of the entire line of Instinct Raw Boost.  Mom loves that it doesn’t contain wheat, corn, soy, grain, gluten, or by-products.  Seriously, who actually wants to eat by-products?  Not this Basset and Chewy knows it.
   That’s one of the gazillion things about I love about Chewy.com.  They only send the best of the best and if you don’t agree (is that even possible?) there Chewy Agents of Awesome that are available 24/7/365 to help.  It is also why they have over 70,000 four and five star reviews. 
   If you are looking for a friendly company with super-fast delivery and guaranteed satisfaction, check out Chewy.  Tell them that Bentley sent you.”
