This little guy has been a part of our family for almost 3 years now. Time sure has flown by with this guy and he has become a very special part of our family. He has claimed my oldest daughter as his person, and she has claimed him as her soul mate. Don't try to argue with her about that either, she's convinced. Today I'm sharing how Amazon has helped us spend more time with our little Toby.
As my daughter has gotten older and grown up right alongside Toby, she has started to take on more responsibilities when it comes to caring for him. Every morning, before she eats breakfast, she is responsible for feeding Toby and giving him plenty of water for the day. Here's where we run into a bit of a problem. She always forgets to tell me when we've run out of food, so we always find ourselves running out to the store last minute, while poor Toby waits patiently at home. Well, thanks to Amazon, we no longer have that problem. Now we can spend more time doing fun stuff with Toby

Toby loves to go on walks and hikes with us and play in the backyard, but there's one thing that although may not be his favorite, we definitely have fun with: a backyard bath. A backyard bath is perfect for the Summer time and an easy activity for the kids to help with. Here's what you need:

  • Dog Shampoo
  • Water
  • Towel
  • A leash

Yes, that's it! Put your dog's leash on him/her, pour some shampoo on your hands, turn on the water hose and go for it. This is the perfect activity for those Summer days when your kids need something to do, not only is it a fun activity, but it gives your kids a sense of responsibility and your dog will smell good too. It's a win, win, win. 

I'm not going to pretend that every dog is the same or has the same needs. Some dogs require specific shampoos, luckily our dog is pretty easy going. If your dog has specific needs, like dry skin or allergies, you should definitely take those factors into consideration when choosing a shampoo. 

Don't you just love how easy Amazon is? I honestly don't know what we did before Amazon and Amazon Prime. Amazon makes everything so much easier, I spend less time at the store, I can shop while cooking, while sitting passenger on errands or while the kids play outside. It really allows for us to spend more time together. Oh and don't forget Amazon Prime day is coming up July 11th!

So, now that my daughter is old enough to use my computer, she can go onto Amazon and order Toby his Purina® Pro Plan® Savor Adult Shredded Blend Chicken & Rice when it's time. Not only does it take one more thing off of my plate, it gives her another responsibility. Oh and this goes for all my cat lovers too! Amazon has you covered too, with such great deals on Purina® Pro Plan® Cat Food.
Whenever we're choosing a new or different food for Toby, we make sure to get a smaller bag at first, in case he has some sort of reaction to it. You can always tell when it's a food he loves because he's very excited for feeding time and he eats it all, he LOVES Purina® Pro Plan® Savor Adult Shredded Blend Chicken & Rice. Which means we can sign up for the Subscribe & Save option.

I love for making it so easy to save both time and money, which of course means, more backyard baths for Toby.
