Making Your Dog the Star of Your Home

Our dog, Bella, is a Superstar and MVP (Most Valuable Pooch) at our house. Recently we had to be out of town for over a week and we were unable to take her with us. At least once a day I heard someone say, “I miss Bella.” When your dog is part of your family it’s hard to travel without them.

New Dog In Town

Bella came into our lives last year but it feels like we have had her forever. She’s half Cocker Spaniel and half Poodle, which makes her a Cock-a-poo. This is what she looked like when she first came to live with us.

Bella as a puppy

This lovely little puppy grew up into a beautiful, sweet, loving dog who is so special to us and we want to make sure we take care of her and keep her healthy! She gets plenty of exercise and eats a dog food that has natural ingredients.

Bella the Dog

Let’s Go Shopping

Purina knows that Bella and your dog deserve the very best, so they’ve introduced a new product, Dog Chow Natural. a natural dog food made affordable so every dog can be treated like a star at meal time. Sold at Kroger, nationwide, Dog Chow Natural offers high quality nutrition made with quality protein, real chicken, and entirely free of artificials and preservatives. Both Kroger and Purina make it easy to give your dog the star treatment while saving time and money.

FYI- The guy in the photo is not some random stranger I asked to help with my dog food. He is my handsome husband of 36 years and he wants Bella to eat healthy dog food too!


  • Is 100% complete and balanced without artificial colors, flavors or preservatives – for a long and healthy life
  • Features Natural ingredients. Naturally delicious. The nutritious kibble in every bag is packed with the big taste dogs love.
  • Is a quality dog food at an affordable price.
  • Is also available in a puppy formula, Puppy Chow Natural.


We also want to make sure Bella feels like a star so I created her a special homecoming present that I hope she’s going to love. Last year when we brought her home we placed her cage with her bed in it (not pictured because it went with her when she was boarded) in our bathroom. She likes being close to us but prefers the safe feeling she gets from sleeping in her own space. I don’t even shut the door to her cage. When she’s ready to go to bed she just goes and in and goes to sleep on her own.

If you like this look and want to do it yourself just watch the video and you will see how easily I converted a plain cage into a bed fit for a Star!
