Loving Up on My Little Dog

This post is sponsored by VetIQ / All opinions are my own

Lately everything has been all about Brooks, which to me is understandable since he’s our brand new baby boy & needs our love and attention all throughout the day. But it’s very important to me that I continue to give my FIRST little guy, Jackson, all the love and attention he needs too!

Brooks, Jackson & I have sort of become the three muskateers during the day! We take 3-4 walks together every day – Jackson loves exploring the neighborhood & Brooks loves being outside soaking in the fresh air. And since my last Brooks & Jackson update – my little dog is making some progress in terms of coming around to our latest addition to the family. Jackson doesn’t completely relocate if Brooks & I join him on the couch and he’s even given him a kiss or two.

Brooks on the other hand LOVES Jackson. He watches him all the time, follows him with his gaze as Jackson walks around the room & when Jackson plays with his toys, Brooks laughs & finds it hilarious. Jackson also got a haircut recently and when Brooks saw him for the first time after the cut, he giggled – it was like he knew his little friend had a different look about him! So funny!


But I’ve been very aware of giving Jackson a little extra love these days -> So when the folks at VetIQ asked to send Jackson a care package with some little treats, I was all about it {and so was he!}

Jackson & VetIQ

The first thing Jackson tried out were the Minties Dental Treats, which were actually recommended by our vet at his last visit to pick up for Jackson since he has a little tarter action going on in his mouth. Jackson loves these treats and I love that they help with his dental hygiene {and come in a tiny treat form – perfect for a little dog!}


Jackson also got to try out the Hip & Joint treats too, which are great for a little dog his age {Jackson will be 8 next month!} He chows these down so quick, Jackson can’t get enough of them!


I love seeing my first {dog}love and my new little love together. I hope they enjoy playing with each other for years to come {and I know Jackson is going to be glued to his side once Brooks starts on solids next month!}

Jackson says – “Thanks to the lovely folks at VetIQ for the tasty treats!”

    Super cute pics! Our dachshund loves Greenies and the jerky from Blue Buffalo. I have to buy them in North America and smuggle them in my suitcase back to Barbados though, as I can’t buy them here. I hope she knows how spoiled she is 😉

    Jackson is adorable and it’s great that he can have products to help him with his dental hygiene and his hip joints as he ages! Jackson and Brooks have come a long way in the last 5 months!
