I work from home & my Yorkie has been my most faithful companion. I enjoy her company while taking my morning cafecito, it’s a time we cherish before the girls get up and start what is a very active day for our furry girl. She loves it too. During the afternoon she goes to the backyard with me and keeps me company while I water the plants. She goes wild with the water hose. I personally love walking to the mailbox with her, this keeps her active, not that she needs more of it. Everyone in our house wants to spend time with her. Even our friends, (aka: pet-sitters), come over often to play with her.

That is why I feed her Beneful Incredibites Chicken, because it is 100% complete and balanced. Beneful believes in variety, heath and flavor for dogs. Our princesa deserves the best and so does your furry baby. If you haven’t tried Beneful Incredibites Chicken, (they are tender and crunchy mini bites for small dogs), go and get a bag, give it a try and watch your doggy enjoy it bite after bite. We get ours at our local Target. That’s where I go to get her other personal items too. Our “yorkie” is very girly and a stylish girl. We all spoil her. I am constantly buying her clothe & accessories, she’s mi princesa.

Have you been to the pet isle? You can find so many options for your furry baby. While walking around I grabbed some craft items to make her a new toy. Bright color are a most, it gives her a taste our Latina side. One of my daughter’s favorite color is green, the other loves blue and we all love pink. Another color I love is that yellow/orange combination that looks like a mango. It reminds me of my island Puerto Rico, very tropical.

Our princesa, Pandora, loves to have her toy thrown over & over for her to fetch and bring back. This can go on for an hours, she’s precious and I enjoy given her lots of love.
