You guys already know that the twins were more than a shock.
A crazy pregnancy, even crazier delivery, and then life with newborn twins were not things we were prepared for.
Another thing we weren’t prepared for was how we were going to share the love by making time for dog after baby. Not only were we bringing two littles into the world, but we already had a big guy at home.
When we found out about the twins, we were determined to make as much time for our one year old German Shepherd as we could. It started with daily walks, long trips to the park, and of course some yummy treats.
Then soon enough, the twins came and we learned it was a lot harder to make time for Sig than we imagined. Our lives were filled with diaper changes, bottles, and not nearly enough time in the day.
The first couple months were hard on everyone.
Especially hard on the big guy who was so used to having my husband and I all to himself.
But things did start to get easier.
We started to find our grooves and some more sleep. We also figured out that making time for dog after baby was easier with some help.
So we enlisted my mother-in-law and Sig’s new favorite, Purina® Pro Plan® Savor dog food.
Making time for Sig now means packing everyone into my mommy missile and driving over to my MIL’s, where the twins can play for a bit while my husband and I get some quality time in with our big guy.
This quality time typically involves a trip to the park to run around, but always starts with a trip to Petsmart to grab a new ball.
Balls don’t last long in Sig’s possession!
This last trip to Petsmart we also grabbed a new bag of Purina® Pro Plan® Savor dog food in the chicken and rice variety, along with a container of Purina® Pro Plan® Savor wet dog food in the Braised Chicken Entrée with Real Spinach Adult Dog flavor as a treat!
I have always been interested in the Purina® Pro Plan® Savor dog foods.
As German Shepherd owners, we have been very invested in Sig’s health because we want him as healthy as can be for a long time. If you didn’t know, GDS are very prone to a few different health conditions. The biggest of which is hip dysplasia. So in order to help Sig have as long and healthy of a life as we can offer him, we try to keep on top of his health.
Which is exactly why Purina® Pro Plan® Savor dog food caught my eye.
Not only is the Purina® brand backed by 85+ years of Purina® research, but the Purina® Pro Plan® variety was the 1st dog food brand with real meat as the #1 ingredient. To me, that means the brand is really looking out for our pups!
Then the Purina® Pro Plan® Savor variety features advanced nutrition with great-tasting formulas to deliver a sensational mealtime experience for dog, which is good and all. I am all for giving Sig some yummy dog food! But the real kicker for me was that probiotics are in a few of the Purina® Pro Plan® Savor varieties.
We all know probiotics are great for us. But did you know they’re also great for our pets? Probiotics are known to have health benefits when consumed in adequate amounts, such as balancing their digestive health. The serving suggestion on the back of the Purina® Pro Plan® Savor dog food bag should tell you the proper amount suited for your pup!

With all of that in mind, we left Petsmart with a 35 pound bag of Purina® Pro Plan® Savor and Sig was over the moon.
He could not keep his snout off of the bag!
Even down the dog food aisle, he picked the bag right out! Luckily the cashier was quick with helping us get on our way.
After Petsmart, we drove to a local park and played for a while before going home to try out the new dog food.
Like most dogs, Sig loves the park. He runs and runs and runs. It is usually the highlight of his day.
But let me tell you, he was SO excited to try out his new dog food. Once we got home after the park, he was ready. He stood there wagging his tail while I cut open the bag to scoop some out for him as happy as could be.
Then once I put that food bowl down, his dinner was gone in seconds.
It is safe to say that his new favorite food is Purina® Pro Plan® Savor.
