My Life Is a Journey Made Better With Dogs

People say that life is a journey.  It's not a race or a destination, it's a journey to be enjoyed and experienced.  I don't know where my life's journey will take me, but I'm ready to go down any road as long as my dogs are with me!

If you're anything like me, your pets are family and they make life better in so many ways.  My dogs, Icy and Phoebe, are a huge part of my life. They make me laugh with their adorable antics, cheer me up when I'm feeling down, and motivate me to get up and experience life's fun and adventure, even when I feel too lazy to get off the couch!

Our dogs are family, loyal companions who love us unconditionally.  For that devotion, they deserve premium 100% natural treats, like True Chews® Dog Treats!
On my life's journey, three things I can't do without are; Tail wags, Sloppy kisses, and Treats.  Lots and lots of dog treats, preferably All Natural Dog Treats!  Nothing but the best will do for my pups, so I only give them premium treats like TRUE CHEWS® Dog Treats.

I partnered with TRUE CHEWS to share my journey with Phoebe.  Life wasn't always easy for her, but together we worked through it to give her the best life!

This post is sponsored by True Chews® Dog Treats and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated to help share information about the True Chews line of all-natural dog treats. but Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. All statements made reflect my true opinion of the product.  True Chews is not responsible for the content of this article.

I have a close bond with both my dogs, but Phoebe and I share something extra special.  Our journey together didn't start off easy, though.  In fact, when I first adopted her she was so filled with fear that it prevented her from embracing life.


I first met Phoebe at the animal shelter where I was volunteering.  I wasn't looking for another dog but she was so adorable and sweet, I fell in love with her immediately and adopted her that day!  I had no idea she was harboring extreme fear issues that would prevent her from enjoying life.

In this 2 minute video, I share the story of my journey with Phoebe.  I'm so proud of how she transformed from terrified shelter dog to a happy, confident member of our family!

Now Phoebe wakes up happy each day, embracing life with joy and anticipation of what the day might bring!  Weather it's a road trip, a hike, or an outing around town Phoebe is up for it!  


Dogs give us their unconditional love, 100% of the time.  That kind of love deserves the very best we can give them.  The folks at True Chews feel the same way!  That's why they created True Chews all natural Dog Treats.  



Here's what I love about TRUE CHEWS dog treats:

πŸ‘‰ They are both Made and Sourced in the U.S.A.


πŸ‘‰ They are Made with premium cuts of meat, which are always the #1 ingredient listed

TRUE CHEWS dog treats were created by pet parents for pet parents.  They're committed to making Wholesome100% Natural dog treats.  The best part? My dogs love them!


On a recent shopping trip to the pet store, Phoebe pondered which True Chews dog treats she likes best!  I think she wanted to buy one of every kind but we stuck with the Chicken, Duck, and Beef Premium Jerkey Cuts!  Delicious!!

True Chews All Natural Dog Treats are made and sourced in the USA. They contain premium cuts of meat and NO meat by-products, artificial flavors or artificial preservatives.
Hmmm, which of these fabulous TRUE CHEWS dog treats do I love best??

  3. I've had my dog Soldier since he was about 2-3 months old. He was first adopted by my son, who was 12 at the time. As often happens, my son loved and cared for him, but left for college 5 years later, leaving Soldier with me. My son will soon be 30 and I still have Soldier! He's older and slower, but he became MY dog years ago. He comforted me through my father's death, the loss of a friend, a severe illness and much more. I don't know what I'll do when he is gone, but I know it will be like losing another member of my family.

    1. Lori that is so heartwarming! What a blessing to still have Soldier at 18 years old! I pray I'll have Icy and Phoebe for that long, that is amazing.

    1. Thank you Clare! I'm glad you enjoyed sharing Phoebe's journey with us, she's a special little girl! I like that these treats don't contain corn, soy, artificial flavors/preservatives or animal by-products. They're an especially great choice for dogs who can't have corn or soy.

  8. Phoebe looks so cute wondering which treat to get LOL. Wasn't it wonderful you found each other. Love the video (but had trouble turning on the sound). You look great! Kilo the Pug has been a challenge but after 3 years, is gradually getting more confident. He would LOVE those treats. All of them.

  15. This is so sweet!!! I like chews better than treats because they leave fewer crumbs and seem to take a little longer to eat so they last longer. I love that picture of her in the shopping cart, she's so adorable!
