We shop at local businesses whenever we can. It is in everyone's best interest to keep local shops operating. We have a local pet shop and used them for quite some time. Their prices were a little higher but fortunately we can afford that. We became increasingly frustrated to find they did not have our dog food and probiotic on many occasions. This despite the fact that we would call them well ahead of time and they would assure us of a delivery date.
I read about chewy.com on several of your blogs and we decided to give them a try. The products are far less expensive than at our local pet store. But the selling point is their service. In every case we have found delivery to be quick and accurate. So we now use them for our food and treats.
Each delivery brings an excited Lucy, despite the fact that chewy does not include a cookie with the delivery.
Lucy checks out the box
Something smells really good
There it is
She licks her lips just thinking of those delicious Zuke's mini treats
We are disappointed that we no longer shop at one of our local stores. But we have found chewy to be an excellent resource for pet products.
[NOTE: Chewy has no idea we have praised them in this blog and we received nothing for it except some cute photographs and a blog entry.]
Our nation mourns the death of a journalist and the brutal murders of hundreds of civilians at the hands of ISIS. Here in our own country we have major uprisings in Missouri and other cities. The Palestinian/Israeli conflict continues to take lives and the people in the middle east are suffering. In such times we fervently hope for peace. And our thoughts go out to the innocent people, especially the children who are suffering. And when the people suffer, so do the animals so we send thoughts for them as well.
We find ourselves so very frustrated that we can do so little to bring about peace. And so we must focus on our own inner peace as much as possible.
Saint Francis de Sales had this to say:
"Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset."
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
HELP THOSE WHO ARE LESS FORTUNATE
AND WORK ON YOUR INNER PEACE
