Review: Orijen Tundra Freeze-Dried Dog Food (Courtesy of!) sent us some Orijen Tundra Freeze-Dried Dog Food to review, and Maisy was super excited about it (which is like regular excited, but with a cape).

I love freeze-dried food for backpacking trips. A full day's worth of calories for the Maisy Dog only weighs 2 ounces! For those of you who have hiked for many miles with everything you need on your back, you'll know why this is so exciting.

I reconstituted the Orijen and another freeze-dried food using cool water. Even though the package recommends warm water, I used the cool water as it's just more true to what happens in the back country. Both foods needed to be broken into smaller pieces in order to dissolve.

Then I set the Orijen down next to the other freeze-dried food, and the Orijen was a CLEAR winner. Maisy chose it time and again, no matter how many times I shuffled the two bowls around.

So it's two thumbs and four paws (plus one ear) up for Orijen's freeze-dried food!

You're so lucky to get sent all these free samples. Or rather, Maisy is so lucky!

Chimera is a picky eater and turns down freeze-dried food and most raw foods. I wish I could feed him those foods exclusively, but he's on mostly kibble with the little bit of raw meal I can coax into him. :/

I'm experiencing some little security issues with my latest blog and I'd like to find something more shielded. Do you have any proposals?
