Baxter's Food Storage and Purina Pro Plan #ProPlanPet

Our dog, Baxter, is very much a part of our family. Sometimes I think he runs the house. I do know the little fella is big on attitude. As a member of our family, his nutrition is just as important to us as our own.

Good Dog Nutrition

Purina Pro Plan does just that… it provides our dog with the nutrition to be his absolute best, helping him to be energetic and resilient and maintaining an ideal body condition, healthy skin, and a stunning coat.

I had an appointment the other day and while I was out I stopped at PetSmart to pick Baxter up a bag of Purina Pro Plan Focus dry dog food. I wish I could have taken Baxter with us, but since I couldn’t take him to my doctor’s appointment, I had to go without him.


I love shopping at PetSmart because everyone is so friendly and helpful and anything and everything you need for your pet can be found there.

Our dog is 17 months old and has always eaten Purina Pro Plan dog food. He did start off eating wet dog food, but we quickly transitioned to dry. It just works best for him.

For a little dog, he has always had a healthy appetite and Purina Pro Plan Focus for Puppies Small Breeds is the perfect dog food for him.

Our vet suggested we continue with “puppy” food until he is 18 – 24 months old (we’ll soon be giving him Focus for small dogs). His favorite is the chicken and rice formula.

You want to find the formula that is right for your dog. You can always ask your vet which Purina Pro Plan dog food he recommends will provide the best nutrition for your dog.

Dog Food Storage

Since Baxter is so special to us, my son thought his food storage container should be personalized. I made a couple of printables that you can download for free to use to decorate your dog’s food storage container if you’d like.

Although you can’t see his eyes in this pic… I love this face!

It’s really easy to do, just find a container big enough to hold the size of dog food you normally buy. The storage container we have is perfect for Baxter. It holds a bag of dog food, which lasts him about a month.

Since he is a small dog, he doesn’t eat a huge amount. Plus he gets 2-3 treats a day. Okay, sometimes more.

My son printed out the printables and grabbed a pair of scissors and glue and decorated Baxter’s storage container. I do recommend a storage container of some sort for your pet’s dry dog food, because it will keep the food dry, fresher, and any creepy crawlies from getting into it.

Baxter loves his food storage container and it made my son feel good to do it for him. Baxter is a very loving dog. He is funny as can be, loves to run, and run, and run until he just collapses. And when he rests… he does that just as much vigor as he does running and playing.


Baxter is a healthy happy pup and we plan on keeping him that way with the help of Purina Pro Plan providing him with good nutrition, making sure he gets adequate exercise, and just loving him.
