Meet Marlow - Puppies are not just for Christmas

Since I lost my old dog some years ago I always said I wouldn't have another dog, for anybody who has felt the loss of losing a dog they will understand why, for me they are like another child a member of the family who you miss dreadfully and you cannot simply replace them.  Likewise I did not want to bring a new puppy into the home at Christmas, not only is it far to hectic but for me it made a lot more sense to settle our new puppy Marlow in before the festivities began.


Meet Marlow, our 12 week old English Springer Spaniel whom we absolutely adore.  I had seriously forgotten how hard work a young puppy can be, sleepless nights, endless puddles and poops and also the insistence of following you, even to the toilet.  We cannot wait to take him out on adventures and will be acclimatising him to the car as soon as possible, there are so many fabulous places to visit where dogs are welcome.


Food wise I wanted to feed Marlow something that is natural and I was introduced to Mcadams Petfoods who supply a feed made from free range chickens with no grain or meat meal in it.  Marlow absolutely loves this food and I only wish there were stockists locally, although it can be purchased online.  The kibble pieces are an entirely different shape to other foods and I found he didn't gulp it down but took the time to chew it.


Astonish have a new limited edition Antibacterial Cleanser which is cruelty free and suitable for vegans to use whilst still killing 99.9% of common germs.  This product was launched to raise money for the RSPCA which is a perfect reason to buy it and I love the fact there are no nasty chemical smells when I use it and it sure does help in cleaning up Marlow's little accidents.

Marlow was also sent some treats to help with training from Pooch & Mutt which are also grain free and I cannot wait to start using them when he is a little older.  I wasn't aware that puppies could not have a lot of things in their diet before the age of 4 months and it just goes to show that you should always read the packaging first.  These tiny treats are shaped like bones and do smell nice, so I am hoping he will enjoy them.

For lots of useful advice on a dog friendly Christmas why not check out the Dogs Trust website where there is even a Christmas menu for dogs to download, after all we shouldn't be the only ones to enjoy the festivities and please remember to keep the chocolates away from your dog, along with lots of other foods these are poisonous and should never be given as a treat.

Have a wonderful doggy Christmas from Marlow.

We were sent these products free of charge but the opinions are entirely our own.
