Where’s the beef?…

wtb-7I may truly be dating myself – but how many remember the little ole lady from the Wendy’s commercials who would scream in her scratchy voice “where’s the beef?

Back in 1984 actress Clara Peller gave those three little words international fame along with $$$ in the pockets of all the Wendy’s shareholders.

Clara, was merely looking for a decent size burger to go along with her enormous bun. #hencethecatchphrase

Jaxson reminded me of Clara after a few licks during dinner the other night…



Last week Jax tasted beef for the first time. And now he just can’t get enough of it.

Before the pending storm, I was low on dog food. My monthly shipment was due any day but I was concerned whether I’d have enough to last if flooding paralyzed the city. So I purchased more of The Honest Kitchen’s Embark! #tastyturkeygoodness

Be ye ever ready!

 I later found a small box of Love from The Honest Kitchen in my emergency stash…


…and that’s how the #beefmance began ❤️


Love is the name of The Honest Kitchen’s “Grain Free Beef Dog Food

It’s filled with all sorts of Doodle*licious “human” foods –

  • 16 pounds of ranch raised beef – 31% protein #needIsaymore
  • 14 sweet potatoescontain vitamin B6, vitamin C, beta carotene, and manganese 
  • 1.5 bunches of chardhelps prevent constipation, fecal impactions and spastic colons
  • 11 bunches of parsleygood for preventative kidney health (to include – kidney stones, and UTI’s by eliminating toxins). HOWEVER – not so good for pregnant dogs or dogs with kidney problems
  • 1 coconut – we all know about the many benefits of coconut!
  • 11 potatoessecond to the sweet potato as a “better quality carbohydrate” the potato is loaded with vitamin C and other nutrients. HOWEVER – diabetic canines probably shouldn’t eat any potatoes
  • 14 handfuls of cranberriesan excellent supplement for the promotion of urinary tract health

High in protein and fat, Love is perfect for –

  • active adult dogs
  • puppies
  • expecting females

The first two categories definitely match up wth my Boys –

Harley is very active for his 7.5 years.

Jaxson – well you know… he’s just plain ACTIVE


The small box of Love is all gone. I’ve ordered the 10 pound box because I keep getting the evil-Doodle eye when I’m preparing meals #wheresthebeef?


I’m looking for the Fed Ex truck to stop in front of the house any day now. There’s a few recipes I plan to try when their food arrives. Have you peeked at their recipes? #lipsmackinggood

If you’ve never tried The Honest Kitchen for your dog nows a great time. Select your FREE sample package ($1.00 for shipping) HERE.

And please let us know how you like it. Jaxson loves it because…


Sending out some Friday Doodle LOVE #punintended

    Beef is good. It seems like most food is chicken, and that is kind of mundane and boring! I am happy we have beef in our rotation too.

      Chicken can become highly over-rated even for dogs! Have a great weekend Emma!

    I’m right there with you in dating myself by remembering those commercials! I like beef for the dogs too, and they really enjoy it. I love the names Honest Kitchen gives their foods!

      I agree – the names of the food make it twice as enticing. Who wouldn’t want to order a box of “Love” for their pups!

      Remember how many people ran around mimicking her? So funny! I never knew she was an actress. I always thought she was just a little ole lady that someone found and made famous.

    Nice to know there are other of us ‘elders’ around. 😉 We love beef (well at least Sam does-I’m a vegetarian) so we’ll be getting some of this stuff for when the snows start falling and we’re close to being outa dog food. Thanks for the tip/review!

      The Beef seems to be a real treat to them. I’ve started mixing the two (beef and turkey) and so far they act like they’re getting a turkey burger from Burger King! LOL Having some on hand for an emergency is a good idea.
