I used to buy it at Amazon.  Price was decent... free shipping.  :) 
I JUST signed up for auto delivery at www.TheHonestKitchen.com.  I can choose how often I want it shipped.  Orders over $49 ship free.  I get points with every purchase.  X amount of points equals free product.
As far as Chewy... PetsMart owns them now.  No thanks.   >:D

Base is in our ROTATION (I can't say that enough  ;D).  I PERSONALLY don't think Lacy dog needs fruits and veggies with every meal.   

I also feed meat, bone, and organ grinds from www.Hare-Today.com and add Alnutrin myself.  Other meat sources I purchase from: www.RawFeedingMiami.com and www.MyPetCarnivore.com   
When I feed meats from the grocery store (with no Base)... I either grind it myself or cut it into chunks.  I also add Alnturin for meats without bones AND liver. 

I buy both Alnutrin (for boneless meats and meat, bones, and organs) directly from the company.  http://www.knowwhatyoufeed.com/alnutrin_supplements.html

The more "work" you do yourself... the less expensive raw feeding is.  There are people that feed their dog/cat for less then a buck a meal... or day.  I can't remember which one.  :)

How many pugs do you have?

I do have a meat grinder so I'm sure that will help. Thank you so much for all the links. If you have a code or anything that you get something for referring me let me know so I can use it. I have four pugs. One will be 13 next month, one 13 in Feb, and two just turned 7 end of May.

I'm glad you bought the book that DeeDee recommended.  That will likely have a LOT more info to help you!

Those are the cutest things! I especially love the black one though. Everyone can tell you I'm black-dog obsessive.

Not yet... wanted to go through the book and make sure I started right and not just jump in and not work out or not have everything needed.

I haven't read the book that DeeDee recommended to you, so I have not clue where your head is at.  :)

If you tossed your dogs a piece of chicken... would they eat it?  That would be a place to start. 

When I transitioned our dogs, it was a piece of cake.  If something was put in their food bowls, it was meant to be eaten!  Maybe transitioning will go that easy for you too!   fingerscrossed

I finally found the FB group that goes with that book:
