Three Paws and Two Ears
MICAH: *peering through the screen door* Hey, what are you guys doing out there?
MERCI: Oh, Jan has some new food she wants us to try.
PERCY: Can we have some?
MARCUS: No way! You cats have your own food. Stay out of ours.
SAM: How long does it take Jan to turn on the camera? We're going to die of starvation while she looks for the Funny Farmer Portrait Setting on it.
MARCUS: While we're waiting, we can tell you what it is we're waiting to taste. It's the new Solid Gold Hund-N-Flocken Lamb, brown rice and barley dog food.
BUDDY: It's holistic. Holistic means it's supposed to be good for the whole system, both mind and body. It's too late to save Marcus' mind but perhaps this food can help his body. Maybe shorten his ears a little?
SAM: Our usual diet is kibble or kibble mixed with some canned food, so Jan introduced the new food by splitting a can between us. Well, not a can. The contents. The canned is on top of the dry food. Look at those orange carrot pieces.
BUDDY: Wait, let me check the label. It contains vitamins and minerals, plus lamb, lamb liver, ground brown rice, barley, oatmeal, alfalfa meal, flaxseed meal .... and, yep, carrots. You can read the list of ingredients for each Solid Gold flavor.
MERCI: This food is made in the US without corn, wheat or soy (common allergens) and also without fillers, by-products, artificial coloring, flavoring or preservatives. It should be a nutritionally complete and balanced meal for dogs of any size.
MARCUS: The others had to eat out on the back steps for the photos, but I had a private dining room.
SAM: Yes, you did. When we first tasted the Solid Gold you were temporarily being fed in your crate because you were so food aggressive you didn't want to share the kitchen with the rest of us.
MARCUS: I've been paroled and Jan says my manners have greatly improved. But I sure miss my private dining room.
BUDDY: *mumble, mumble, yes, but...so we're all agreed* Okay, we canines voted and we all voted to give this new Solid Gold Hund-N-Flocken food a paw's up, so this food is four paw. If we find it improves Marcus' mind, we'll revise that to three paws and Marcus' two ears.
We were not paid to review the Solid Gold food. Chewy.com did provide us with the cans to taste test. Any opinions expressed are entirely our own!
Note: There is no Blogville interview today. We were waiting on Puddles' answers but she just lost her fur sissy Whitney, hers will be delayed for some time..
