Dawg was getting bored with the same old same old dry food (she told me so), so Saturday I bought a bag of new dry, coming by recommendation from the people who own the pet food store I use.
They sell tons of brands at the store and I don’t think they get any kickbacks for recommending one brand over another, so I decided to try what they were raving about.
Acana. Free-Run Chicken.
Now, I gotta admit I think I’m getting hornswaggled here – like what’s a free-RUN chicken? Considering I don’t even eat free-range chickens, why am I buying this for Dawg? What’s a Fresh Cobb Chicken? I love a Cobb Salad, but I’m guessing a Cobb Chicken is something different!
The bag says the food is Biologically Appropriate? Sounds like Hollywood gobbledygook to me. I doubt the gray wolf went around hunting for Cobb Chickens. I think he got the slow sheep first.
The ingredients in the chicken meal sounds like a shopping list at a homeopathic pharmacist – I haven’t a clue what althea root is, not a clue! Doubt Dawg does either.
chicory root, turmeric, sarsaparilla root, althea root, rose hips, juniper berries….
And the list is long…kelp, catfish meal, deboned turkey and chicken (glad it’s deboned!)
Long story short, this experiment might be short-lived. I took what was left of her Wellness brand dry and mixed some of the new in it so she’d not stick up her nose completely – (Wellness the lighter color kibble, Acana, the darker)
But this morning, I think she’s sending me a message………
She still likes my stew at least so I haven’t abandoned her completely!
More sticking snow this morning, at one point the flakes were coming down heavily, and sticking. It’ll be gone by this afternoon I suspect.
Happy Monday all around.
