Please respond in the COMMENTS if you would and I would be happy to share this information with you.  Why would Bzz Agent recommend Eukanuba?  I would, so I asked that question to Bzz Agent in the question section where you can talk to Bzz at any time, day or night, or when they are sleeping!  And don't just TRUST my word for it in this blog, call them or write to them yourself!  Here's the contact info for them:  about.bzzagent.com/word-of-mouth/contact

So let's get to this review of Eukanuba now and not delay or make this too long so I am sure that you are reading this blog and not side tracked to a different blog. Thanks for reading this far and I hope you will continue reading further!  There are COUPONS being shared on this review that will be helpful to you in saving money on Eukanuba's Dog Foods in your store of choice where Eukabuba is sold.  



This is the current dog food that Sandie is eating now and I did a taste test with her because I wanted to see that she would choose the Eukanuba dog food over her current dog food.  And what did she do?  She ate BOTH of the dog foods but she ate the Eukanuba FIRST and then her regular dog food.  She has been on her regular dog food for 6 years now and I would be tired of the same food for that many years, wouldn't you? 
This is Sandie saying "Oh no they are up to something now because I barely laid down and they want me to do something!"
I placed a handful of r/d on the left hand side and a handful of the Eukanuba on the right hand side. 


You can see that she ate the Eukanuba and then she ate her r/d.  This gal did it, just like I thought she would and chose the tastier food first and then she ate her  r/d because this gal is never going to turn down a free meal! 


First let me tell you how impressed I am with this company just on how they set up the review!  They mailed us the Eukanuba that we needed for our dog and that made this choice so much easier!  Because they did THAT and so many other wonderful things for this review, we are choosing to ADD to our dog food the Eukanuba adult dog food that we're going to share about as well as the one that the review is set up for!   I feel that good about the product!

Let me tell you that this review is not Eukanuba's opinion and I am not getting paid to review these two products, but I did receive the items in the review for free and was not asked to return anything!  This is solely my and my husband's opinion of the products that Eukanuba.com sent!


We love the size bag that the Eukanuba dog food comes in because we can choose which size bag we want to feed her and they sent the perfect size to last her while doing this review and GIVEAWAY!   Yes, if you keep reading this article to the bottom of it, you can enter a GIVEAWAY to get the coupon to buy the food yourself, but if you're really not interested in the product I ask that you pass on the coupon and let someone who is interested in this food be the one to take the $5.00 off coupon.  Thank you for respecting this choice.  We would love to do a Review and Giveaway with you if you choose to take the $5.00 off coupon. Thanks so much for thinking about that at this time! 



My husband was able to get a full look at the left side of her teeth AFTER she ate the dog food and at 10 years of age, this dog has no tartar!  We were provided with a FREE black light and instructed how to use it because we are not vets and they should be doing this.  Our vet. felt that we would be the better ones to do this since she's used to us checking her teeth and brushing her teeth.  So r/d must be doing something right and we are doing the right things as well as our veterinarian has told us to do.  We don't do anything without his approval first.  (No fingers went missing in this demonstration!) 
My husband was able to get a good look at her teeth with the black light and people that were here during the procedure were impressed with how clean her mouth was and they asked us to check their dog's teeth with them holding their dog in place and they did the checking.  Two out of three of them had really bad gums and wanted to know what food we were using to get such good teeth.  We also informed them that she chews on knuckle bones and eats a good diet which includes Eukanuba dog food and vegetables with her dog food that our vet told us to add to the food and she chews on a Greenie Toothbrush once a week.   And then I gave out some $5.00 coupons to them right away so that they would want to try the product themselves.  They were so happy to receive them. 
This picture demonstrates about where in their mouths the dog food will naturally go to and that's important because if they are frontal chewers this dog food will not get into the right place of their teeth to be effective.  This is what our veterinarian has told us as well and so we have always made sure that she gets the smaller nugget for best chewing.  Big morsels are not for her because it changes the bite. 
And not the FRONTAL look and as you can see she has had NO TARTAR at all and she is 10 years old and our veterinarian has never been wrong in telling us what to feed her and how to check her gums and how to brush her teeth. 
This came with the products so that we knew how important it is for dog's to chew in the right part of their teeth and how your dog can get tartar if they are not eating their food in the right jaw position.
This is the smaller size that provides comfort when chewing and is the perfect size for our dog based on what our veterinarian has shared with us and what Eukanuba has taught us not only now, but when we first adopted her from the shelter and at that time her teeth were just 2 years old! 
This is not me and this is not my dog.  This is a video on You Tube that I thought was very effective in telling you how to check your dog's teeth.  Please do not watch this if you feel this will sway your opinion about the facts given here in any way.  Thank you.

 *Eukanuba did not tell me to provide that You Tube video on how to check your dog's teeth, I researched the Internet and found this very good You Tube.com  video myself.*

If you think I am ready to be a Queen Bee, would you say something to Eukanabu please? 

What is a Queen Bee?

[I'm just kidding, in my family I am the Queen Bee but I don't try to sting with my words. That's good, right?  lol  I am definitely a very good representer of the product and research everything without taking the material presented at it's presentation and try to convince you to believe in all that I am saying but rather trust your professionals (veterinarian) and the product information itself.  Thank you! ]

*legal wants us to tell you that "no bees were harmed during this presentation."*


One final word about PRINTABLE COUPONS!

As a premium brand, Eukanuba is sold at pet stores and specialty stores, but not at grocery stores or discount stores. The brand offers Prebiotics to boost the immune system of dogs, which is also found in Iams dog food. Procter & Gamble purchased Iams in 1999, and now Eukanuba is under the umbrella of the U.S. conglomerate. Pet owners can save money with Eukanuba coupons, as well as Iams coupons.

Eukanuba is so confident that your dog will like its products that the company offers a 110% guarantee. Eukanuba will refund your purchase and give you an additional 10% if your dog finds it unpalatable. The company manufactures specialty foods for animals with special diets, and some of its products are available only with a prescription from a veterinarian.

The Eukanuba product line offers dog food for puppy, adult and large breed adults. The Eukanuba Pure Formulas offer ingredients such as 100% chicken, rice and beet pulp for all-natural meals. Eukanuba Pure does not contain meat fillers, by-products, corn, wheat or artificial ingredients.

The Eukanuba Naturally Wild product line also includes natural ingredients such as salmon, venison, turkey and rice. A popular offering from Eukanuba also zeroes in on requirements by breed. Dog owners can purchase products specifically designed for Boxers, Yorkshire Terriers, Labrador Retrievers and other breeds.

Although Eukanuba carries a higher price tag than other dog food, our coupons can help dog owners save money. Petvowners can also shop for other premium dog foods with all-natural ingredients by using Max dog food coupons.

THE HOUSE IN THE COUNTRY


REVIEW:

I believe that there is a time and place (be it reading to your kids, be it reading for yourself)_ that young books are meant for adults like myself to enjoy.  Christmas is a time of hectic running around (like today is the day to work on the Christmas tree and it’s almost 3pm and nothing has gone up on the tree yet except for lights!)  But there is a lighted bow on the front door and today I can ask my husband to work on the outside of the house! Lol)  

This book is just incredible told from the viewpoint of the dog.  Puppies Squirrel and Bone come into this world in a tool shed behind a summer house.  Sounds like your typical stray, right?The tool shed has cats, birds and mice.  But who would say that there isn’t room a couple more?  I know that when we lived in our house inland, I said that since there was a dog house that my stray (“BEAR”) who was in her last two weeks of pregnancy and found wandering around LA.  Will tell that story on my blog sometime!

Squirrel and Bone, alongside their mother, take up residence in a wheelbarrow inside the tool shed. While food is scarce, and often hard to find, the family is warm, and safe from predators. During their short time in the tool shed, Squirrel and Bone learn the rules of hunting from their mother. She disappears one day, after setting out for food, Squirrel and Bone know that they must leave the shed in the hopes of finding a better life for themselves. 

When the two siblings are separated, Squirrel must get used to being alone. That is, until she meets up with Moon, another dog who resembles Bone. Over the course of their time together, they meet up with humans - both good and bad - and many dangerous obstacles that stand in their way to make a better life for themselves, but they never give up hope, and keep trucking, dreaming of a day when things will be better for themselves.

When I was teaching in the classroom 17 years ago I would buy the BABY-SITTERS CLUB books by Ann M. Martin.  The students were severely emotionally challenged Middle School children  in their residential facility.  These books allowed my students to travel into the lives of the ones that they were reading! 
As a rescuer of dogs back when we lived inland in a house (lost in the crash) and we moved to the beach to rent!  And we love this too ….  Because we are beach lovers!   

I’m an avid animal lover (rescued guinea pigs, rats, birds, rabbits, and  a chinchilla along with three rescues (a blind puppy that we trained to be able to live in a home and adopted her out to the lady who also wanted her but she wasn’t able to train her like we did, a Basenji with lots of emotional issues and then the Labrador Retriever who had her 11 puppies in a wonderful birthing box in our bedroom and we raised them and adopted them out through the Humane Society!)   Those were all adopted out (with incredible stories for all of them) and were strays sent to kill shelters and we rescued them, fostered them and then adopted them all out.   We now have another stray (of 8 years living at our beach house  and is 10 years old today!) and that is Sandie (Sharpei Mix) and had been returned to the kill shelter TWICE.
  
I was so excited to find A DOG’S LIFE.  It will make you so engrossed that you will have to finish the book in one day.  A DOG’S LIFE does tell the brutal life of a stray animal.  The abuse was as is usually happening …  at the hand of humans… kind and unkind.  And it tells what they go through on a day by day basis to simply find some food.  The story is told in the first person- rather dog person- a narrative by Squirrel.  This book by Martin will be an incredible novel for readers of all ages.  This book just touched the hearts of all, and all in the hope of someday, all animals will live in peace, and none will be left "unwanted."

At this time of year I think of the homeless and “unwanted” who are on the streets in our county who live outside in the cold in tents and down by the riverside in the next town over, and for the ones who come to the shelters it is so much better.  I am volunteering at a women with their children shelter that has steps to get out and make it on their own given time and being taught what to do to qualify for a job, taking care of their children who needed to be removed from their home.  My husband and I also put together school items and Christmas items in shoe boxes for BOYS and MOM, and GIRLS and MOM. 

We’re delivering them to the shelter soon!  And then we will go to Rescue Mission (that the women’s shelter is connected to!)  and take a boxes of food and clothes and my AVON products that have sat on the shelf for a year!    We really enjoy serving them in whatever way we can!

Maybe you  can take some time to check out the rescue shelters and if nothing else, you could go to their online sites and share pictures of the strays and unwanted online!  We have a 20 year old list called NO MORE HOMELESS ANIMALS on Yahoo groups where we do this with many others!  The response to that and the ABUSED animals list have helped so many animals all over the United States!
