(43-42) My Plump Puppy
We tried a couple of different foods but nothing really interested her until I found a food called Good Life; at Target of all places. The food was gluten free and the price was right; so we continued to buy it for her. Hershey always ate her Good Life food, but I wouldn't say that I ever thought that she was enthusiastic about it; and so when her last bag ran out, I decided to try and find her a new food at PetSmart.
As soon as I approached the dog food aisle, there were two reps there who wanted to talk to me about their products. The first rep showed me a food that I was pretty sure that Hershey had already tried and rejected. I told her that Hershey was picky and she told me that if I didn't buy the food that the other rep was going to tell me about; then she could show me a food that she's never seen a dog refuse. "Well why bother with the other rep," I thought; and I asked her to show me the failsafe food.
We walked over to a dog food called Bil-Jac; which was made of chicken, oatmeal and yams and was in fact gluten free. The rep confessed that this was actually the food that her chihuahua ate and again stated "I've never seen a dog not like this food." Since I knew that PetSmart would allow me to return the food if my choosy chihuahua didn't enjoy it; I thought it was a win win situation.
The next morning I opened Hershey's new food, and tried to give her a little piece to taste. Hershey took the piece of food and brought it into the hallway (which is not unusual,) and then ignored it. I thought "So much for no dog disliking this food;" but then Hershey came right up to her bowl and chowed down like there was no tomorrow. I couldn't believe my eyes. The lady was right; Hershey LOVED this food. She'd eaten until her heart was content. So much so, that I think she was in a little food coma for most of the day.
Queen of EVERYTHING
