Ree Drummond’s Instagram post

Drummond posted a message about a dog-food promotion she has with Purina. She said there will be samples of her dog treats inside bags of Purina One dog food. Drummond also mentioned her line of The Pioneer Woman dog treats are available at Walmart stores.

Treasure hunt time! I dropped cute little samples of @thepioneerwomandogtreats into bags of Purina One food so your sweet doggies can try a few nibbles… and boy, are my arms tired! You can find the super special bags (and my whole collection of tasty treats) at @walmart. (And thank you guys for continuing to send me photos of your doggos with the treats. They are increasing my love for pups with each passing day… if that’s even possible!

Fans said they were disappointed

Some fans were upset because of Drummond’s partnership with Purina. The followers who are dog owners complained because they don’t feel Purina is quality pet food. “Disappointed to see doggy lover Ree endorsing their garbage-filled food,” wrote one fan. “Purina? Trashy stuff… made with fillers and flavoring,” commented another. “Partnering with Purina will not be supported at our house. We value the lives of our beloved canines,” added a disgruntled follower.

One fan had a problem not only with Ree Drummond’s support of Purina but also Walmart

Other fans seemed to have a problem with Drummond’s support of Walmart. One follower said Walmart doesn’t pay its employees enough, keeping them “impoverished.” Here’s what this Pioneer Woman viewer wrote:

Ree, I love you, you’re making your hometown a wonderful destination to visit, your TV show and recipes… BUT WHY Walmart, WHY Purina?! I do not want to make the Walton family richer while they keep their employees impoverished. There are so many high-quality dog foods out there, so Purina is not tops on my list. Maybe you could market elsewhere?!

One fan said some of the negative comments about Purina were deleted

One of Drummond’s followers said some of the negative comments about Purina were no longer there. The fan agreed with the comments and said her dogs don’t eat food from Purina.

Wow, all the previous posts from a couple of hours ago about how people won’t ever buy a Purina product were all deleted. Shame to hide comments so people can’t see other views. I agree; my dogs only eat Acana.
