As we make our rounds and help the momma with the errands, of course we attract a crowd. Face it. 3 gorgeous Bichons and the puny human pushing our cart? Kind of an awesome site.
Soooo, we get handsomely rewarded for our participation and that reward usually comes by way of a visit to the pet store where we get more attention, more play, and we meet up with friends and one of us, who has a toy addiction, gets to pick up her next "victim".
Invariably we get questioned about how we stay clean [they have no idea momma is OCD, how we stay soft and pretty [OCD momma again... OCD...] and what dog food do we eat.
Excuse me, but the the hey is "dog food"? We get lamb chops, turkey [no skin, no bones, no junk] carrots, peas, sweet potatoes, green beans, whole grain pasta, brown rice, apples, we get those zucchini patties that I love, that delish Shepard pie, fish, [I love crab] but that I know of we don't ever get "dog food". The momma has serious trust issues. And the motto around here goes like this:" if you share my bed you share my food. If I can't eat it, neither can you."
We are vaguely aware of that part of the pet store that has bags, and cans of caca. But seriously, why would we want it? I had a fab breakfast today, I had oat, apples, turkey and honey. What did you eat? Dinner will be ready soon and I am looking forward to it.
I had some sense that I was missing something until I realized what it was. I am missing the "gambling factor" associated with commercial dog food. Is it safe? Is it safe for me? Is it safe for my human to touch?.... Nahhhh thank you, but no thanks.
WE LOVE OUR HOME COOKED FOOD, AND YES, HOME MADE SNACKS TOO.
Now, just to get into the "spirit" of the game, we have asked momma to please name her meals with incredibly fancy appetizing names.[Just like the commercial dog food companies. You know, creative writing, fictional labeling, no relation to reality... cough cough... Beneful ... cough... Benewhat???] But the snarky little woman put breakfast down and pronounced it to be "Unicorn breaths with gossamer tweaks with a hit of healthy rainbow farts". Nuff said. She can be seriously snarky.
Ahhh, but the food is great, and IT'S NEVER BEEN RECALLED!!!!!
Needed to be said.
