I am so excited to be teaming up with Purina ONE® to talk about our whole family health challenge. When we had to say goodbye to our sweet Charli a few months ago, we were all crushed. However, welcoming a new puppy into our home has been wonderful and it has forced us all to be more active – even in the brutal winter months! Focusing on ourselves in the cold weather can be challenging but including the family pet makes it easier – you have to go outside really often with a new puppy! Getting 10,000 steps a day is actually easier.

Purina ONE® challenged my family and I to focus on our new puppy’s health for 28 days – it really has been a Whole Family Challenge! Our dear Maybelline was excited to be included in the fun. She loves all the attention so the girls and I have had a fun time making sure we get her outside to “get her steps in,” as our 6-year-old, Juliana says. Getting a new puppy has forced us all to be outside more. Having a new puppy has taught the girls a lot about responsibility and has added a few more daily chores to their to-do list. Whole body health really isn’t just for the human members in our families – dogs and cats love to be outside and they also love to feel healthy and full of energy! More walks? Done. Longer playtime? Absolutely!


We haven’t had a puppy in the house for over 12 years, and to be honest, I forgot how much work it is! What I have learned over this 28-Day Challenge is that the more tired I make Maybelline the easier our evenings are! She is a busy puppy – she loves to take walks with us all even in the snow and ice! She loves to follow the girls around the house and steal their socks and their favorite teddy bears, but she also loves to lay with Brian and I at night and catch a few dog food commercials on TV. Yes, she loves to watch TV! If she gets enough exercise during the day, she seems to be less crazy and destructive at night. We also crate trained her early on, so she is used to it, which is heavenly. We tell her to “Kennel up!” and she runs right into her kennel and lays down until morning. Sleep is so important for us all – puppies too!

We really had no idea what food to start her on. When Purina ONE® approached me to do this challenge, I figured we would try Maybelline on Purina ONE® True Instinct Turkey & Venison and we are thrilled with the results over the last 28 days! In a perfect world, I would make homemade food for our pets just like I do for the humans in our family. Yet, life is busy and something has to give. Thanks to Purina ONE®, I can trust that Maybelline is eating real food. Other things that I love:

  • Crafted in Purina-owned facilities in the USA
  • Natural with added vitamins, minerals & nutrients *Excluding Vibrant Maturity 7+ Formula
  • Every ingredient has a purpose
  • Veterinarian recommended 
  • 0% fillers, 100% nutrition. Complete & balanced adult dog food.

I want her to feel good, have healthy energy and not have accidents in the house. Consistency is key for any kids – puppies alike! Below is a list of the results I have noticed with Maybelline thanks to Purina ONE®:

Day 1: More excitement about her food!

When we first brought Maybelline home, she barely touched her food. I think she was excited to meet our girls and explore her new home. She was more excited about empty yogurt containers on the counter, leftover pancakes on the girls plates after breakfast, and those occasional blueberries that hit the floor under Madilyn’s breakfast table spot! She didn’t really care that food was sitting there! Since starting her on her first full bowl of Purina ONE® dry dog food, we instantly noticed more excitement around mealtime! She literally licks her bowl clean every meal now.

Week 1: Extra energy!

I swear Maybelline has lots and lots of energy now after she eats. I was reading about the ingredients in her food and I guess that the SmartBlend of nutrition in every bag of Purina ONE® helps support healthy energy in dogs. Maybelline wants to play even more – especially first thing in the morning! Pretty excited that soon enough I can make walking the dog first thing in the morning another job for the girls. Soon enough.

Week 2: High digestibility!

Purina ONE® dry formulas are highly digestible and promote high nutrient absorption, so more nutrition goes to work. Maybelline is pretty much potty-trained now and loves to go outside to “do her business.” We are working on the girls taking over this responsibility more and more every day. Regular trips outside keep Maybelline on a schedule and prevents less accidents in the house.

Week 3: Sparkling eyes, healthy skin, and radiant coat!

One of the ingredients that I love is in this food is omega-6 fatty acids – My husband is an eye doctor and swears that they are beneficial for clear, alert eyes – even in dogs! I swear that Maybelline’s fur is even softer now. She loves to get her fur brushed everyday.

Week 4: Strong immune system

Tis the season for colds and the flu. Not that our dogs get these same sicknesses that we do but I do think that what is in their food can help their bodies fight off disease. A dogs’s immune system is supported by a unique antioxidant blend of vitamins E & A and minerals zinc & selenium thanks to Purina ONE®. I have already seen positive changes in her whole body healthy!

Day 28 and on: Strong teeth, healthy gums, heart, and joints!

The calcium in every Purina ONE® formula helps support strong, healthy teeth and gums. High-quality sources of protein, including real meat as the #1 ingredient, helps support all of the dog’s muscles, including a healthy heart. A natural source of glucosamine helps support the dog’s healthy joints.
