Hungry Dog!

Does anyone else buy Hungry dog treats?
They are Merrick "seconds" and come in a 2lb bag..The last batch I bought had pig, sheep and cow ears, Texas Taffy (beef jerky), Snozzles (pig noses), beef patties and a couple of bones (which I tossed)
THIS time I hit the jackpot...the bag is almost completely full of FLOSSIES!!! There are a few ears,a couple of Bully Sticks, several long sausages and one bone..hee-hee...I feel like I won the lottery
http://www.merrickpetcare.com/store/...p?c=24&s=64065
The best part is that the store that I buy them from sells them for $9.99 a bag! That's the price of two and a half flossies and I have about 30 of them!

Wow! Wish I could get that here. Why are they $18 on the site? Is that the same bag you got for $10?

What does 'seconds' mean?? Are they old or damaged or something??

Thanks!

Click on the link, it said they just weren't "perfect" according to size, etc. but were still ok. I think it's more about how they look.

When I make cookies to give away my kids get to eat the misshapen ones, maybe it's the same sort of thing.

Yep, it's the same size bag as the website.
They are the same treats that you'd buy at the store but a little bigger or smaller than they are supposed to be and sometimes you get a pigs ear that is mis-shapen or cut in half.
When the owner of the store told me about them I was a little unsure about what I was buying but hey, they're Merrick, I figured that they must be okay.
When I opened the bag I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of treats but this time blew away the last bag.
I'll have to ask who their supplier is.
It's a great price...Even at $18 I think that it's a bargain..you get at least $30-40 of usauble treats in the bag.
One bag lasts Todd about a month and he gets at least one treat out of the bag a day.
