Matthew, the autism service dog is the #bestdogever

This post is sponsored by Merrick and the Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Merrick Pet Care and their Best Dog Ever Campaign, but MetamorFit only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Merrick Pet Care, Inc. is not responsible for the content of this article.

When Matthew joined our family in January 2013 he was 13 months old, and immediately welcomed with open arms and hearts by me and the #TampaTrio. It took some time for the husband to come on board, but eventually Matthew won him over and we can all agree that Matthew is in fact the #bestdogever.

Matthew is a pivotal part of Ronin's overall therapy. He provides Ronin a nonjudgmental sounding board, serves as a "weighted vest" and Ronin is always so happy to snuggle up with his best friend when he returns from a hard day at school.

The best dog ever deserves the best dog food ever, and that food comes from Merrick.

Merrick is a natural dog food, including grain free dog food, using recipes that are sourced locally with farm fresh ingredients to ensure the highest quality. Dogs thrive when they're fed quality protein and healthy fats like the ones in Merrick Pet Food's holistic and natural recipes.

We feed Matthew the classic real beef with whole barley & carrot mixed with Chunky Big Texas Steak Tips Dinner.

Merrick has a very user friendly website, and you can use their tools to figure out what food would be best for your dog. It was using their tools that I found this mix for Matthew. And boy does he ever love it! Merrick offers more than 125 dog food, cat food, and pet treat recipes!

A few days after switching his food Matthew went out to the garage (I apparently hadn't shut it all the way) and surprised me with this!

I guess he was hungry?? He loves this food. Merrick also offers a great "how to switch" area of their website so you can easily transition your dog from his current food to an all natural, high protein dog food.

I really believe that the right dog with the right family can make all the difference! And that when you have that great combination, then we all have the #bestdogever

Merrick wants to reward one of my readers with a great prize!! You can win a ONE YEAR supply of dog food. The team at Merrick will help the winner figure out which products are best for their dog, either dry/wet, or perhaps a combination of both, like what we feed Matthew.

    I love that they have grainfree! Mazy has never had dog food with grain but, like many dogs, she gets tired of the same foods over and over. She would love the sweet potato and duck, I'm sure. And the sweet potato/buffalo or sweet potato/salmon are combos I know she'd love, too!
  • Classic Lamb, WingALing and Smothered Comfort!
  • I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
