A Day in the Life of Pixie the Chihuahua

So I told you a couple weeks ago  how I had changed Pixie, my 10 year old Chihuahua over to Purina ProPlan Bright Mind, a specially formulated food to increase cognitive awareness in adult dogs (age 7 and older.) 

According to the experts at Purina Pro Plan, the glucose metabolism in a dog's brain starts to change and can effect the memory, learning, awareness, or decision making.  In order to promote alterness and mental sharpness in dogs that are 7 or older Purina Pro Plan created a formula and introduced BRIGHT MIND Adult 7+. 

Inside it contains enhanced botanical oils that have been known to promote alertness and mental sharpness in dogs 7 and older and results have been visible within 30 days!  It's possible to notice differences in owner-dog interaction too! After feeding a senior dog Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind as a daily diet there might be more of an interest in play and the ability to better adapt and cope with change.  Even though Chihuahuas can live a long time, dogs are still considered senior by the time they reach age 7, and an estimated 44% of the approximate 87 million dog population in the U.S. is 7 years of age. 

Over the past couple weeks Pixie has been better with remembering where she puts her toys, especially some of her favorites like Octy the Octopus.  

Pixie finally can play an entire game of fetch with me without running off in the middle of it because she gets distracted.   She loves playing fetch with her little tennis ball and we do this several times a day!

When Pixie isn't playing with her toys or wrestling with her siblings, she enjoys following me out into the porch or tagging along when I garden so she can soak up the sun.  This is her favorite past time.  

You can find Purina ProPlan Bright Mind in Petsmart.

And... if you spend $10 on Purina Pro Plan Dry Dog or Car Food between 8/31 and 10/4 you can save $10 on your next purchase of 14 lbs or more, on or before 11/1. (This is subject to availability and the transaction total is after discounts and before taxes).   

So what is a day in the life of your dog like?
