“If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.” – Fran Lebowitz
So after a rather depressing start, I met with Pennye over at the Big Bad Woof to discuss making your own dog food. I’ve long loved the Big Bad Woof. Pennye was amazingly helpful, totally cool, and simply brilliant to talk to. She answered all my questions, recommended a ton of reading material, and sent me home with a bunch of samples. And a tube of meat. Yes, a giant tube of frozen meat.
There’s an option in between kibble and going it alone. That’s tube o’ meat plus dehydrated veggies. I’m trying out some of the stuff to see what I like (and more importantly, what the beast likes) and see where this goes.
I also had someone offer me a large box of organ meat, and someone else offer me several pounds of bones (both super important to dog health, as I have learned.) I think we’re off to a solid start.
