at my expense...
...I am right there with you. Yup- it's the food thing again. They had these great trial sizes at the pet store today. It is by Merrick and it is called BG (before grain.) I tried the kibble- but they have canned.
As usual, when ever I bring home a new food (for me or the boys) a sampling is in order. So two little piles placed on the floor in front of them-- Jasper took a few in his mouth and ran to another a room-- Cash stayed put and gobbled--- but then Jasper came back and stayed put and gobbled. and then-- this is the amazing thing, both of then grumbled for more!!! you know how mellow my boys are-- I can be cutting up steak and Jasper hides and Cash acts like a rug with just his eyes watching me--- never a sound.
So we will see what happens-- it would not be the first time they have eaten the sampling but not the meal.
"but why switch missy?" you ask... "you seem to have settled on your odd mix of cooked medallions and this and that thrown in..."
Well... no answer, except, I still have fantasies of being able to throw down a bowl of kibble. And I do worry if I am robbing them of nutrients by cooking the medallions.
The ingredients in this kibble are amazing. I tried the buffalo, but it comes in chicken and salmon too.

Before Grain Buffalo 11.1lb
Before traditional grain based diets were invented, mealtime for generations of dogs was provided by nature. Our new Before Grain product line provides a diet rich in high quality meat and bio-available nutrients the way nature intended. We believe a diet based primarily on fresh meat, super blue fruit, nutrient dense vegetables and high quality oils contribute to overall health and longetivity.
Fresh Buffalo is the #1 ingredient - there are NO grains, fillers, by-products, artifical colors, flavors or preservatives!
We've formulated our Before Grain dry kibble varieties with
your "everyday extraordinary" dog in mind, and the result is the most palatable, grain-free dog food on the market. This is the way food was supposed to be, before grain got involved.
