A Lab Named Mulligan

CAMERON:  We have a first here.  Buddy actually volunteered to be the model for today's post.

MICAH:  That was SAM'S job until Marcus started butting in.  Marcus wasn't fast enough this time.

CYNDI:  Jan was setting up to photograph the Mulligan Stew cans the dogs were going to taste test. (They were going to taste test the dog food, not the cans.)  She was so thrilled to see Buddy pose voluntarily, she didn't care about the glare of the sun on the cans.  You can take our word for it.  It's Mulligan Stew.

MERCI:  Here are Sam, Buddy and I waiting for Jan to hurry up and take the picture so we could taste test. As you can see, Jan doesn't believe in dressing up a meal.  She never bothers to add appetizing colors to our plates.  Would it break her arm to add a sprig of parsley?

RUSTY:  You have to be kidding.  The way you dogs scarf your food, you wouldn't even notice if Jan painted your food purple!

SAM:  Finally Jan gave the word and we all dived headfirst into our bowls to try some of the Beef Recipe.  The only ingredients listed are beef, water sufficient for processing, cabbage, beef liver, brown rice, horseradish, L-Cysteine, L-Methionine, Beta Carotene, selenium yeast. 

PERCY:  Hey, guys,  I checked out the dog food company's website.  Mulligan Stew was developed by a naturopathic practitioner and was named after a Labrador Retriever named Mulligan.  It doesn't use any synthetic vitamins, minerals or supplements.  Although it is healthy for us, it states on the label, "This product is intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only."

SAM:  We cleaned our bowls, Jan.  We're ready for seconds.

BUDDY:  You might have noticed there were only three of us in the first photos.  We mentioned in last month's review we only had one photograph because we had an emergency during the session. Jan became very busy cleaning up blood.  In case you aren't already aware, a nose injury bleeds profusely. 

MERCI:  Marcus has a mealtime routine and when it's altered, he gets a bit confused, so he waited outside while we tasted the beef stew and then Jan gave him a bowl of it.  Notice how well he's behaving, although he's hunkered down ready for permission to eat.

BUDDY:  Permission granted and Marcus is chowing down!

MARCUS:  I cleaned my bowl and asked for more, but Jan is selectively deaf so I didn't get seconds.  We all loved the Mulligan Stew and give it a big Four Paw review.  Mulligan Stew comes in six flavors.

We were not paid for this review but we were provided sample cans by  Any opinions or comments are strictly our own.
