Speaking of Dog Food

Since my last post was pictures of Louie and Miles chowing down together on dog food, it got me thinking about our Youngest Daughter and her love of kibble. Hopefully she won't read this. ;-)

When she was a toddler and I had my first Yorkie, Buddy, I caught her more than once on her hands and knees in the kitchen, eating dog food out of the bowl -- with no hands -- with the dog. It was so polite, the way they took turns ... I can't imagine what Buddy thought. (Here is Buddy in the photo with our girls.)

And when she was about 7 years old, we lived in Denver. Hubby traveled a lot for business and used to fly in and out of the old Stapleton Airport back then. We had to pass the Purine Dog Food plant on the freeway to get to the airport.

Once, as we were on our way to the airport to pick up Hubby/Daddy, it was warm, summer and we did not have air conditioning in our car. We had all the windows down and as we passed the Purina plant, the smell wafted into the car with a vengeance. Oldest Daughter and I were gagging, it was so strong and unpleasant.

Youngest Daughter inhaled and said, "I'm hungry!" Still makes me laugh!!!

Well, it must be genetics because her Auntie has been known to eat pet food as well. When I worked as a veterinary technician, I would eat a little of the food in front of my patients I was encouraging to eat. My colleagues were aghast, but I figured if it was good enough for my patients, it was good enough for me. Granted, it was the canned food and not the kibble, but I also tried a few crunchy dog and cat treats here and there. Hill's Science Diet a/d was the best.....tasted like mashed potatoes and gravy all mixed up, although the texture wasn't as creamy.

You are too funny. I can just see you smacking your lips and tempting your doggie patients to eat something. Since 1992, we have been "serving" Hill's Science Diet at our house. Louie and Miles get the Lamb and Rice adult version now.
