The sun finally made an appearance and it was actually warm enough to be out and about this past weekend. I haven’t been able to take Darla out since it rained and rained for the last few weeks. She has been cooped up at home. We finally caught a break from all the rain so I packed her ball and her dog food and had a proper day out in the sun with my best friend.

Beyond Basic Blog Freshpet Darla and Me #FreshpetEffectBeyond Basic Blog Freshpet Darla and Me #FreshpetEffectBeyond Basic Blog Freshpet Darla and Me #FreshpetEffectWe walked around the park and played fetch until she got hungry. Darla loves being outdoors. She runs around like a mad dog and loves getting her paws dirty, which at times can be hard on me because then I always end up having to bathe her to keep her fur white and bright!

Beyond Basic Blog Freshpet Darla and Me #FreshpetEffectI have had Darla for over 10 years now. I got Darla my first year I was living in San Diego for college. I had just moved away from home and was very homesick. Darla was my first friend in town. We did everything together. We explored the city, checked out all the beaches and played until the sun went down. You would swear she was still a puppy with all that energy. Just hold a bright yellow tennis ball up and she will play fetch until you give up!

Beyond Basic Blog Freshpet Darla and Me #FreshpetEffectBeyond Basic Blog Freshpet Darla and Me #FreshpetEffectA lot of her energy comes from her food. I just started buying her Freshpet pet food. Freshpet is all natural pet food made with fresh ingredients. You can usually find it in the refrigerated section. My dog goes absolutely nuts for it! Darla notices the bag so when you’re about to open it, she runs straight to her bowl. What I love the most about Freshpet is that it never contains artificial or chemical preservatives, or any mysterious ingredients like chicken meal. It’s almost like a homecooked meal for your pet. She absolutely goes wild for it!

What a lovely dog! You two definitely have a strong bond 🙂 nice to see that she’s getting natural food too.

Freshpet sounds like a great option for our pets to get better nutrition than what’s avaialble at the store. I’ve tried making home-made food for my dog, but it’s too much hassle. I’ll have to check this out.

It’s so nice getting out after being stuck inside. Nice pictures.
