Merrick Holiday Recipes + #MerrickBestDayEver

Disclosure: Merrick sent three cases of their Fall & Winter Seasonal Recipes to Lapdog Creations, free of charge for review purposes. I was not compensated for this review and all opinions expressed are my own. 

Have you heard?  The Merrick Seasonal Recipes are here and they are a must for every #BestDogEver - as is the Best Game of Fetch Ever, but more about that later.


The Merrick Seasonal Recipes actually arrived on our doorstep well over a month ago, so we must apologize for our delay.  But, that means we've had plenty of time to really put the recipes to the taste test and they have all passed with flying leaves colors!

The Lapdogs love when the nice man in the brown truck shows up with boxes from our friends over at Merrick.  After all, they know they're about to be spoiled.  Tut and Sophie tried to keep the secret from little sister Penny, but she's way too smart to be fooled by their hound-brains.

Merrick Seasonals are always a big hit at our house.  Heck, we've even been known to hoard stock up on certain favorite flavors. Don't judge, you never know for sure which ones Merrick will - or gasp, won't - bring back! This year's fall/winter offerings include two popular comebacks, as well as two brand new recipes.

  • Gameday Tailgate - a fan favorite coming back!
    • The Lapdogs enjoyed this one on Patriots game day last season, and are wagging their tails for it again this year.  So much yumminess crammed into one can, it truly sounds like a gameday casserole that any human would love as well -  Chicken Thighs, Beef, Carrots, Peas, Bacon and Potatoes in a delicious gravy.
  • Hero’s Banquetbrand new recipe!
  • 2015-10-15_06-34-00
    • This one has quickly become a favorite of the Lapdogs and their humans.  The kids love it for the tasty combination of Turkey, Chicken, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots and Pears, and the humans love that it is a recipe that truly gives back!  That's right... For every can of Hero’s Banquet sold Merrick will make a donation to K9s For Warriors to support their mission of pairing specially trained rescue dogs with veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disability (PTSD).  How awesome is that?!?!
    • Holly Jolly Pot Roast - brand new recipe!
      • The second new addition to the fall/winter seasonal lineup was named by a Merrick Facebook fan as part of a 2015 social media contest. And as the name would imply, this one features Beef, Potatoes and Carrots in Beef Gravy.  Comfort food in a can!
      • Forever Home Holiday Recipe - back for a second season!
        • Another one that makes the humans smile a little bigger, Forever Home Holiday benefits homeless dogs, a cause near and dear to our hearts. For every can of Forever Home purchased during this holiday season, a meal will be donated to a local shelter. And, it's made with Beef, Chicken, Yukon Gold Potatoes, Red Delicious Apples and Peas - sure to please your pup!

      Best of all, all four recipes are Grain Free, Made in the USA, and outstanding quality! 

      The fall/winter seasonal recipes can be found at local pet food retailers who carry Merrick products, as well as at several online retailers, including  Pick some up for your pooch today. 

      Teutul wants everyone to know that Merrick Seasonals make great gifts for all of the good pups on Santa's list this year!  


      I'm absolutely certain that he is correct.  Just look at that face. 

      Now, let's talk about the Best Game of Fetch Ever contest! 


      Merrick thinks every dog deserves the Best Day Ever, whether it's unending belly rubs or the ultimate game of fetch, and that's why they want to reward the #BestDogEver with the #BestDayEver

      THE DETAILS...
      Merrick is inviting pet parents across the country to share why their dog is the Best Dog Ever for a chance to win the Best Game of Fetch Ever with Drew Brees. 

      HOW TO ENTER...
      Submit a photo and brief narrative through Merrick's Facebook page before December 3

      While the Lapdogs think the Best Game of Fetch Ever should be with the one-and-only Mr. Tom Brady, we won't hold it against them.  After all, Mr. Brees seems like a pretty cool dude too.

      WOW! three cases of food, you are one lucky dog. Your Thanksgiving is already set!

      The Lapdogs are set to feast in style this holiday season! They look very happy with their haul.

      And I agree that the best game of fetch ever would be with Tom, but Drew is a pretty good second choice. And I like that he's involved in a contest with dogs.
