Chewy.com July Pick: Merrick Lil' Plates Itsy Bitsy Beef Stew Trays

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

Chewy.com is your one-stop shop for all things cat and dog!  One of the fantastic products you can find at Chewy.com is from Merrick:


Merrick Lil' Plates answer the demand for delicious dinners made just for small breed dogs with Grain-Free Itsy Bitsy Beef Stew Dog Food Trays. This meal is everything your tiny friend dreamed it would be with real beef mixed with wholesome sweet potatoes, carrots, green beans and apples. A mouthwatering beef and venison broth tops it off for a hearty stew that’s easy on tummies with highly digestible ingredients in a perfectly sized portion for small mouths.


These little trays are great for small dogs, but our pup is medium sized and we find pouring a tray over her dry food is a great motivator to get her eating on days it seems she's avoiding her dish:)  Whatever your dog's size, they are likely to really love this stew that is full of meat and veggies swimming in gravy.  Jessie sure does!

You can find Merrick Lil' Plates at Chewy.com for $17.68 for a case of 12 3.5 oz trays.

Book Review: Missing by Lisa Harris

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**


Missing
by Lisa Harris
The Nikki Boyd Files

Nikki Boyd isn't usually called in on homicides; her forte is missing persons. But when a case with two murdered and two missing pops up on a quiet suburban street, she's ready to start the investigation and find missing homeowners Mac and Lucy Hudson. When the first clues lead her to the boat of her friend Tyler Grant--and another dead body--Nikki must untangle what ties Tyler to the Hudsons. The clues pull her into a deadly maze of counterfeit drugs and a killer who will stop at nothing to silence anyone who threatens his business--including Nikki.

Christy Award-winning and bestselling author Lisa Harris puts you right into the action in this fast-paced thriller.

My thoughts:  
You won't be able to put this one down!  The twists and turns will keep you hanging on the edge of your seat from start to finish.  The perfect, fast-paced summer read!
