Dog Blog: Shopping Haul - April's Pet Month in Partnership with Ocean Finance

April was National Pet Month and to celebrate those cat & dog lovers over at Ocean Finance gave some lucky pet owners £50 to treat their pet.

Ziggy was lucky enough to be given some pocket money to spend how he liked which is just as well as what do you get the dog who sports a Barbour collar and Mulberry trench?

Here's his haul:

Choods Minty Leaves which are gluten free, perfect for an after dinner treat and keep his breath minty fresh and Lily's Kitchen Organic Chicken & Vegetable Dry Food which is the only dried dog food he'll eat. He's a massive advocate of Lily's Kitchen as they too only use human grade ingredients including alfalfa grass, burdock root and chamomile which are essential for balancing his extremely sensitive stomach.

Pet's Corner. Choods x 2 @ £5.99, Lily's Kitchen £7.99 = Total Spend £19.97

Natural Instinct Lamb Lites, if we could feed him totally raw we would but Ziggy doesn't enjoy a raw diet but loves these chicken wing tips. He'd do absolutely anything for these and for £3.80 we get about two weeks worth of treats for him which is ideal as they not only clean his teeth, they give him essential vitamins and minerals and they also clean his digestive system out. 

He also treated himself to a couple of packets of Chicken Strip Pet Munchies these are perfect for rewards and are dried chicken. He absolutely loves these and the duck, them range is pretty expansive and now includes dried fish skins which Ziggy and his cousin, Italian Spinone Reiver both enjoy, my grandma, not so much when they're eating them off her pristine cream carpet. 

Carltons. Lamb Lites £3.80, 2 x Pet Munchies @ £2.99 = Total Spend £9.78...Oh son you've only got £20.25 of pocket money left.

He chose to head to Harrods online and order himself a new bowl, he's good to himself this boy. AND he can shop! Perfect for £9.95 this addition is going to look gorgeous in our kitchen. £39.70 spent so far.

His favourite of them all, Planet Dog's Orbee Strawberry.... £9.99 from Bennythedog.co.uk. Total haul spend £49.69. 

Think I need to take a leaf out of his book as he shopped well AND still had change left over so he decided put his 31p in the Hounds for Heroes tin. Every little makes a difference!
