Product Review:Victor's Grain Free Beef and Vegetables in Gravy

Hello good pups and peeps of Blogville! Macy Blue here with another review for Chewy.com! O.K. Mom, I'm kinda hot and tired from my hike...whachagot to lure me in the that house??

Macy Blue, Chewy sent you Victor's Grain Free Beef and Vegetables Entree in Gravy canned food.


That looks pretty tasty Mom! Why don't we show them how to make the Macy Blue Stew??  First Momma mashes the canned food with a fork... cause she likes me to have lots of gravy! I LOVE gravy!

Then, she adds my glucosamine (We get the Grizzly kind from Chewy!) and my kibbles. She mixes it all with a little bit of hot water. And Voila... well, you may notice this is not mashed... Momma's gonna have something to say about that with her old blue words...

But this is me... eating...nom nom nom.

O.K. time for Momma to "blue it up!"

Creekhiker here. Yeah... this stuff does NOT mash well. It's SO HARD! Every time I took a fork to it, it popped out on the counter or across the room! I finally gave up! So, it doesn't make the richest gravy.  But let's look at the ingredients: 

Chicken, Beef Broth, Chicken Broth, Chicken Liver, Beef, Dried Egg Whites, Dried Egg Product, Potatoes, Potato Starch, Carrots, Peas, Natural Flavor, Guar Gum, Dried Plain Beet Pulp, Ground Flaxseed, Salt, Sodium Phosphate, Calcium Carbonate, Potassium Chloride, Tricalcium Phosphate, Sodium Carbonate, Vitamins (Vitamin E Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, Niacin Supplement, D-Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid), Minerals (Ferrous Sulfate, Zinc Oxide, Copper Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Manganese Sulfate, Potassium Iodide), Choline Chloride, Magnesium Oxide.

Good stuff but... a bit pricey. I just ordered canned food and was shocked at how high it has gotten. I used to keep it between $1 and $1.20 a can and none of my favorite brands were even close to that when I placed our last order.  This stuff is almost $3 a can. I've got to admit, this is steep for me. I'm going to be shopping much earlier when I stock the pantry next time and try to find quality food at a cheaper price. Either that or I'm going to have to start cooking! 

Oy! There goes Princess Pocketbook again! Although...she IS a pretty darn good cook! Hmmm...

Whatever... I liked the Victor's Grain Free Beef and Vegetables Entree in Gravy canned food. Here's my proof:


 I give it four paws up... Mom is still finding a crowbar for her wallet. UGH!

Creekhiker received no compensation to do this review. Macy Blue was given one bag of Victor's Grain Free Beef and Vegetables Entree in Gravy canned food  by Chewy.com to devour or not.

Happy Barkday to Moi

Yeah it's my barkday! Nothing too special... Mom's SO busy. Work and school and dealing with my Granny's flooded house and a wedding in the family and taxes schmaxes blah blah blah.... She did clean off the porch sofa and let me have a good sunbake today while she worked. She told me no new toys until she's "caught up..." what ever that means! But she did bake a lasagna and a lemon cake and I got some. Then we took a nice nap together. That's quality time, you know!  But when we got up, it got fun!

We dashed over to Auntie Rottrover's and jumped in the Otto Mobile with Osa and went to our favorite Sunday hike. It's on the back side of our mountain up in the National Forest. Nobody is ever there...but there were some "bee people" there today. More on that in a minute.

First, we got to roam a bit. Can you see me??? I WAY ahead of Osa! Isn't it gorgeous there??

Just as we got to our favorite swimmie hole, we ran into all these big trucks. The local bee peeps were having to re-do the trails a bit because they washed out in all our rains. They were doing this to get their hives way back in the forest. I was quite happy cause they made my swimmie hole deeper!

After swims, I got to run...

And Osa Bear ran and ran...

Then we needed snacks so we grazed a bit...

And Mom took pictures of flowers so we waited and waited and waited...

Then we went back to Osa's and found Otto out back showing off his circus skills to the new neighbors. We put him in the car and went to our local favorite spot by the river and went for a hike with him too! We got to hike for four hours!!!

I'm home now and ready for bed. All in all, my 6th was pretty darn nice!!!
