My dog is the apple of my eye. My shadow… my best bud! And while you may think this seems like a bit of an exaggeration, those who know me know how very true this is.


Ever since I adopted him back in October, my life’s changed in the best way possible. He’s made me more patient, caring, and definitely more responsible! For all the good that he’s brought into my life, I’ve been working hard to do the same for him. After all, he deserves it. I want him to live his longest, healthiest life pawssible, and that means making sure what’s going into his body is worthy of him.

Benji and Author

Picking dog food is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. Trying to figure out what he should and shouldn’t be eating can be downright exhausting. Enter Just Right® by Purina®. I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun it was creating his very own bag of food tailored to his unique nutritional needs.

Create a blend

Purina’s Just Right® site is sleek and super easy to navigate! Once you’ve selected “Create A Blend,” it takes you to a page where you can write out your pup’s name.

Type in your pup's name

The next step was entering all of Benji’s info. While forms like these can be quite a chore, this one was actually fun to fill out!

customization levels are off the charts

Purina asks you in-depth questions about your tail-wagger’s current weight, eating style, activity level, stool consistency, coat quality and more. They really dig deep to get all the information they can about your pup, so they can offer the blend that best suits your snuggle-butt.


You then get to name the blend you’ve made! Here’s where you can get creative. While I went with Benji Barkington, my friend went all pop culture-y on hers.

To finish off the customization process with a flourish, they offer you the option to add a photo of your dog.

So much fun creating this blend for him

The final result? Well, you can see it below. I mean, how fantastic is that? Benji now has his very own personalized dog food.

And Benji? He can’t get enough of his food. He keeps pawing me for more. The best part of this deal is you can keep going back and changing the customizations according to the changes in your pup’s activity level, health, taste preferences etc.

Chowing down his food and lovin' it
