Needs to be said.

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.


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.

Hey it's Jet here.

Lucky, lucky... we K9s are omnivores and your Momma has a cool 'tude! If it works for you, rock on... We get veggie and fruit tidbits from Mom when she cooks and we love it. BTW, you may want to participate in Tasty Tuesdays hosted by Sugar and Kol the Puggle... we'd love to see you there!

You're very fortunate that your human can afford to feed you that way. Many humans cannot.

Rumpy, my human shares. She makes choices that include us. Commercial dog food is not cheaper, in fact it is more expensive. Lamb and turkey are choices because JD is beef and chicken intolerant. We are rescues. If momma had more money and more arms and laps, there would be more of us.

My Mama would never go back to our kibble days now. Sure it's a bit harder to make sure we're getting the right nutrition and adding taurine and calcium and mineral supplements to cooked food, but man! Are we ever healthier. Mama eventually switched us to raw and we've never been better! It's definitely worth it!
