If I’M a #Nutrish Advocate, then why is MOM headed to #BarkWorld 2013!?

dakota nutrish is sending

Hi  my woofie furiends!!!  You can see by the photo above that I am BARKING out the most wonderful news!




Did you read that? I am hoping I made myself clear! Why? Because if I am the “Nutrish Advocate”  then why is my MOM the one who is going to BarkWorld?

Make that, MOM is going! I sure wish that I was! Click on the badge to learn more about BarkWorld!

That doesn’t make a bit of sense to me and being the intelligent Sheltie that I am, I say that THAT is NOT fair! 


I am the one who eats an array of products made by Nutrish

My faves are (in no pawticular order):  just6 (treats and kibble), Naturally Delish,  Soup Bones,  Savory Bites,   and Regular Nutrish! Did ya notice I eat just about EVERYTHING that is featured in the photo above? You are pretty observant because I DO!

I haven’ tried Nutrish’s latest formula which is Zero Grain. Dad was talking to Mom about that tonight wondering if we should try it. Mom told him that it’s rated 4 stars by Dog Food Advisor (why they didn’t use a 4 PAW rating I’ll never know, but I digress), so there is a chance that might be in my future!

Why do I eat Nutrish?

Because it is SUPER PREMIUM DOG FOOD made with simple, natural ingredients!  I have been eating Nutrish since 2008! LONG BEFORE I ever started blogging!! It is the ONLY DOG FOOD THAT I EAT! I told ya I  am an intelligent Sheltie! You can  be as intelligent as I am  and learn more about Nutrish  by clicking here

Also, proceeds from the sale of Rachael’s Nutrish go to Rachael’s Rescue. I like that Rachael Ray is dedicated to helping doggies less fortunate than myself!

Want another reason why I should be going to BarkWorld and NOT Mom?


Is the name of the event NOT




Dakota March 16 Wordless Wed

I’m not standing by a microphone for nothing you know!

If I were going I could help Mom with the updates she will be posting throughout the weekend LIVE from BarkWorld!
I can convey messages MUCH LOUDER and much faster than she can! Be sure you are following Mom on Twitter @dakotasheltie and be sure to follow  @Nutrish too!

Also, why should MOM be attending a PAWTY that Nutrish will be throwing at BarkWorld and I CAN’T???  I hear that the FIRST 50 HUMANS TO ATTEND THE PAWTY GET TO PAINT A CERAMIC DOG BOWL FOR THEIR PUP. (SOME humans are actually FAIR to their pups! BOL!)

WAIT! THERE’S MORE!!! There will be human food and delicious dog treats too!!!

There had BETTER be some treats for me, that’s all I have to say about it! 

SPEAKING OF TREATS!! STAY TUNED MY FURIENDS! I’ll be sharing a BarkWorld recap in SEPTEMBER and there will be a special Nutrish coupon offer following BarkWorld!! LOOK FOR MY RECAP ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9th!

In the meantime, be sure to visit NUTRISH RIGHT HERE!!


“She’ll see ya, when she sees ya!!”

Barks and licks and love,

    That sounds like a bad deal to me! My mom is not going to BW and neither am I. We are both going to do BlogPaws in May. Maybe next year I will put my paws down at BW, but we just are too busy right now to go and Mom is not allowed to go to these events without me ever again! Hope she brings you back lots of great stuff!

  9. Safe travels to your mom Dakota and I am really looking forward to her updates from BarkWorld. It may inspire me to go next year…and sorry Dakota, just the human mom of our house would be going so maybe you and Tater can start a petition for the dogs or something (-:

  11. SlimDoggy Jack here..I know how you feel Dakota – Dad’s making some presentation about food and one about “Idea to App”…gheesh…they wouldn’t had had the idea without ME! We’re the stars, not them and we have to stay home. Not fair. Although, I hear airline travel isn’t much fun.

    It doesn’t seem right Dakota, I mean it’s called Dakota’s Den, not Dakota’s Mom’s Den. 🙂 Seriously, I hope mom has a grand time at Barkworld and learns lots of new things to share with us. 😉

    Great post Caren and have fun at Barkworld!

    • Dakota says:

      thanks so much! Wish you were going to be there!!! Love, “Mom”

  17. What a world – can’t believe you’re missing the trip! Oh well, I guess you can just relax and wait for all the great stuff mom is sure to bring home.

    • Dakota says:

      I can’t believe it either Will and Eko! It’a pitiful!!! She had BETTER come home with a lot of stuff that’s all I can say! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  18. WOW! Kudos to you Dakota! Your mum must be so proud of you. Don’t fret while she’s gone, I am pawsitive she will return with a bag full of goodies for you,

    • Dakota says:

      thanks so much my furiends! Yeah, Mom is proud! She had BETTER come home with a lot of goodies for sure! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  19. Congratulations!!! How fun! Too bad you can’t go, Dakota. But at least you get paid (in treats that is) for being a Nutrish advocate.

  20. Your Mom goes to Barkworld without you (and without me)? Ok, I hope she will have tons of fun and she will discover a lot of new and interesting things and I hope she will be back on your side soon, Dakota.

      Awww Easy, you and I should have gone together and we should have left Mom home!! Imagine what fun you and I would have! She will be home on Sunday, she leaves Thursday and Dad is staying with Cody and I (oh joy oh joy!!! BOL!) Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  21. Oh, that’s very cool! Congrats on getting to go! (Also very cool that they have a grain free product now. We started feeding grain free food when our last pup got cancer. No/low grain is important for that!) Have fun and can’t wait to hear about it!

      Jackie thanks for that info, I didn’t know that. I might have to look into trying their grain free for Dakota. Thanks so much! Love, “Mom”

    That does not seem fair at all, Dakota. But I am happy for your Mom that she is getting to go! I’m sure she will bring you lots of yummy treats and stuff home. Someone has to watch the house and take care of Cody, right?

    As a fellow Sheltie, I can vouch for u when u say u are a Champion Barker. Barking is in our blood!

  27. Well, I hope your mom at least brings you back some nice things Dakota. 😉 Shiner got to try some Nutrish food for the first time recently. It was one of those little plastic containers of wet food and she really liked it. I’ve been wanting to change her food, and Nutrish was on my list of foods I might think of changing her to. Off to check out the zero grain link you gave!

  29. Sweet Dakota we think you should at least be allowed to go with your mom to Barkworld. After all you are the one who puts out those awesome barks and you are the one that eats Nutrish. We haven’t tried Nutrish yet but we bet Chancy might like it…you sure make it sound and look good. Congrats to your mom we hope she has a wonderful time at Barkworld. Hugs and nose kisses

  30. I know what you mean Dakota! I’ll be hanging with my crew at the Barker Lounge while our mom’s are having fun at BarkWorld! But at least we know they’ll be bringing lots of treats back fur us!

    It is totally not fair Dakota. YOU should definitely be the one going. She can tag along of course, if she wants, but you should be the star of the show. 🙂

  32. Mayzie says:

    I KNOW how you feels, Dakota! But while our moms go off and learn how to be better assistants (and yeesh! Does my mom ever need to learn THAT!), it’s prolly good if WE stay home and keep everything under control. Plus, if THEY do all the hard work, WE can just be the Most Glamorous figureheads. That’s not so bad. (But…just between you and me…I’m thinking abouts having a pawty in my condo while mom’s gone and you’re invited. I’ll send the private jet to pick you up.)

    Wiggles & Wags,

  34. Hey Dakota,

    You’re so right buddy, I think you’d be the most vocal advocate there for sure – they need to get you a private jet and whisk you off there dude!! 🙂

    But think of all the mischief you and Cody can get up to whilst she’s gone! 🙂

    Have fun,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    Hope your mummy has a great time though and bring you back loads of treats
