Hello, Meet Mr. Chewy

I like to shop, but I hate schlepping those 25 pound bags of dog food store-to-car-to home, so for the last year, dog food arrives at the door courtesy of Amazon and UPS. 

I recently received an e-mail from Brent Rangen at a company called Mr. Chewy.  I get a lot of e-mails from a lot of people, and I tend to delete more than I read, especially from folks I don’t know.  I am glad I didn’t delete this one!

It seems that Mr. Chewy thinks Two Barking Dogs’ blog “speaks directly to our target demographic and you’ve clearly created an influential presence.”  (Stop that right now, you’re making me blush!)  I also appreciate the $50 coupon code he sent me to spend on the Mr. Chewy website.

The first thing I did was check out the prices on Mr. Chewy’s website

I feed Clover & Cosmo Wellness Core Reduced Fat to the tune of $62.00 for a 26 pound bag.  I was very pleased to see the same food on Mr. Chewy at $57.99.  Mr. Chewy’s shipping is free when you order $50 or more; Amazon is free with any Amazon Prime item, but Prime costs me $79 a year.   Mr. Chewy is $4.01 cheaper on the food.  How can this be a bad deal? 

I haven’t redeemed my coupon yet because I have two big bags of food sitting in the hall closet.  As soon as I do, I’ll report back.  If anyone out there checks out Mr. Chewy and orders from them, let me know.  Or e-mail Brent ( and let him know what you think.
