At FirstMate Pet Foods, we are passionate about providing the best quality nutrition to dogs like Callie, the 12-year-old Landseer Newfoundland who has been thriving on our food for the past 10 years. We were thrilled to receive feedback from Ron, who believes that FirstMate has played a significant role in extending Callie’s life beyond the normal lifespan of a Newfoundland dog.
Callie, born on December 13, 2010, was adopted by Ron in March 2011 and has been a beloved companion ever since. She was a therapy dog with St. John Ambulance for six years, visiting long-term care homes, universities, and high schools in the London, Ontario, area. Despite her retirement from volunteer work, Callie still brightens the days of everyone she meets on her daily walks.
Ron and Callie attribute Callie’s longevity and health to the quality of FirstMate dog food. Callie remains energetic and enjoys 2+ walks and several playtimes a day. Callie’s small size for a Newfoundland, weighing just under 100 lbs, and her friendly demeanour make her a true embodiment of her breed’s “friendly giant” reputation.
At FirstMate, we are honoured to have played a role in Callie’s healthy and happy life. We believe that a healthy diet is crucial to a dog’s well-being and longevity, and we are proud to offer a high-quality option for dog owners like Ron and Callie.
Thank you, Ron and Callie, for sharing your story with us and for choosing FirstMate Pet Foods as a part of Callie’s diet. We wish you many more happy and healthy years together!
