Remi and Purina Bright Mind

When Jasper was 10 months, we decided that he needed either a sibling or a puppy. And since the sibling thing wasn't going to happen anytime soon, puppy it was. We did some research, and found out about Colorado Puppy Rescue. We went to an adoption event and we knew Remi needed to come home with us the second him and Jasper laid eyes on each other. They have been inseparable ever since. 

I discovered them in the play room once, Remi covered in newspaper 'taking a nap' together

He is Jasper's best friend, our family guard dog, and is even obsessed with baby Soren. As soon as I lay Soren in the bassinet, Remi is right by his side, ready to come give me a 'look' if he starts to fuss. 

Sadly, he's a little over 7 now and his age is starting to show. He's still a puppy at heart, but his age is starting to slow him down a bit. 

When I heard about Purina ProPlan Bright Minds, I knew we needed to test it out on our Remi. 

According to the Purina experts,when dogs are around 7 years old , the glucose in their brains begins to change, which can affect memory, awareness or decision making. Thankfully, Purina has discovered a way to promote alertness and mental sharpness with their BRIGHT MIND Adult 7+ formulas. This new dog food contains enhanced botanical oils that promote memory, attention and trainability, which can be visible within 30 days. 

A few weeks ago we went to our local Petsmart to pick up some Purina ProPlan Bright Minds for Remi, and he is a big fan already! We gradually switched him over so his stomach wouldn't be bothered by the change, but he handled the change perfectly. 

Do you have an older dog? What are some of your favorite activities to do with your dog? We love to take Remi hiking. We had fun creating a little go pro video of our latest hike with him!

  1. What a fun post! I've always wondered what it's like to go hiking as a dog. Remi seems like an awesome member of the family. We have two older dogs, and I'll have to check out that food! #client
