My little Buddy is the dog who rescued me. Regular readers know that both of my children got married this year, just a few months apart and now my husband and I are officially empty-nesters. It has been a pretty hectic, emotion-filled season.

In anticipation of this new chapter in our lives, one of the smartest decisions we made was to adopt our little Buddy. He is our constant companion and he adds so much joy and laughter to our quiet house.

According to the rescue organization, Buddy had a rough time. He was brought to the pound after being hit by a car. God bless the rescue group who took him in, got his leg fixed up and nursed him back to health. He is so loving and sweet. He knows that he is one of the fortunate ones. Now we want to make sure he lives his life to the fullest.

Buddy keeps us active, gets us outdoors, and doesn’t require much except love, attention, and a good meal.


I knew that little white dogs are often prone to food allergies so I wanted to find him a high-quality protein food that was grain-free (no corn, wheat or soy), had no artificial colors or preservatives and had no poultry by-product meal.

I asked other pet parents for a good food recommendation and Nature’s Recipe was the brand I heard mentioned the most. I was willing to make a special trip to a pet food store to buy it, but now I no longer need to run that extra errand.

I was delighted to learn that Nature’s Recipe is now available at Walmart. I shop there once a week for most of our household products, beauty products, OTC medications, grocery items and so much more. I keep a running list of what we need on my phone.

Like most of us, I’m busy, and if I can buy my frequent purchases all in one place, then that is what I’m going to do. The days of making multiple stops at several stores for specialty items has lost its appeal. With Walmart, you also know the prices are low and you are stretching your dollars.

Nature's Recipe is now at Walmart.


If you are a Walmart shopper, a pet parent, and also feed your pet Nature’s Recipe, I know this is good news for you too!

No matter where he is in the house, when he hears the rustle of the bag of food, he hustles to his dish!

I feed Buddy Nature’s Recipe Small Breed Grain Free Chicken Dry Dog Food. He likes to stick his whole face into the bowl and then he licks his chops. It makes me happy to see him thriving.


Question for Multiple Pet Owners

We have been thinking about getting a companion dog for Buddy. We have enjoyed him so much that we want to open up our home and our hearts to another rescue dog.

How do you know if your dog would enjoy having another one in the house or if they prefer to be “King of the castle?” Buddy loves to visit with other dogs when we are out on our walks. He is very social but then after a few minutes of sniffing around, he is ready to be on his way.

We don’t want to bring another dog into the house if it will cause Buddy to feel anxious or threatened. Do you have any advice about adding a second dog?

Nature's Recipe is now at Walmart. This is great news for pet parents this is what you feed your dog and been going to the pet food store.

I know that many of my readers are Walmart shoppers too. If you are already buying your dog food from Walmart, I highly recommend giving Nature’s Recipe a try. If you’re making special trips to the pet food store to buy Nature’s Recipe for your dog, you’ll be happy to know that you can now pick it up on your regular stops at Walmart!


We have two small dogs at home, and are looking to change their food. I bet they would love this brand!

Awww. Buddy is so cute! I think it’s so important that we feed our “Buddies” the best food that we can.

Heather @ Kraus House Mom

I’m glad you gave Buddy a good home, he looks very happy. Feeding your pets high quality food is just as important as any other family member.


I have definitely looked into nature’s recipe and I think they are a awesome brand for a dog. They take care of your pets very well in the food in the nutrition in that diet is really good. I will definitely consider this food with my pup.

This sounds like a great brand of dog food. We just got a new dog and I have been looking for a good brand to try.


I have a white dog with a lot of tear staining and I started giving her grain free food to help. I’ll have to check out this brand.

This is an amazing brand for smaller dogs. It is full of so much natural proteins and foods that small dogs thrive on it.
