At almost 12 years old, Ginger has tried many dog foods in her lifetime and although we have always fed Ginger a dry kibble, I have often wondered if she would rather enjoy a wet or moist food as part of her diet. If you recall, I recently shared that our dog Ginger would soon be trying out ALPO’s® wet dog food. We were sent two coupons so I took a peek at ALPO'S HOMEPAGE, to see what dog food flavors were available before going to the store the other day. ALPO® has a lot of wet dog food flavors! I ended up choosing a few different flavors for Ginger to sample. Today we found out what she thought of a wet dog food, check out this quick video. (yes, I baby talk to my dog — who doesn't?)
You probably can't really tell in the video but Ginger's eyes were as round as saucers the whole time she was eating her ALPO® Chop House® Beef Tenderloin Flavor in Gourmet Gravy. She really enjoyed this wet dog food!
I was surprised by how the food looked when I opened the can — it looks very similar to a canned beef stew and the gravy was a nice thick consistency. Also, it didn't smell bad at all — it just smelled beefy and actually looked a tiny bit appetizing — not that I would ever try it myself, lol!
When Ginger finished sampling her ALPO® wet dog food, there was plenty of lip licking and tail wagging for many minutes afterwards. I think it's hilarious that for the past half an hour Ginger has been keeping her eye on the remaining can that I'm saving for later. I set it on top of her dog food bin and whenever Ginger walks by, she stops to sniff the can and give her tail a small wag — too cute!
So all in all, I am really pleased by how much Ginger liked this new to her dog food. While I can't see Ginger eating a diet that is solely wet, she liked ALPO® so much that I do plan to buy her a few cans a month and mix half a can at a time into her regular dry dog food as a treat. It's so nice to do something for my furry friend that gives her some joy!
I also went ahead and like ALPO’s Facebook Page so I can keep a look out for coupons and news about new flavors of ALPO®. Plus, the happy dog photos that they post are really cute!
