Doggy News

Scout got a new dog bed tonight. It's one of those nesting beds, round with walls. She looks very cute in it. She likes to be on the couch, which is really love-seat sized, but she gets all offended if a human is sitting there too. Her sheepskin is upstairs and she does sleep on that at night, but there's nothing downstairs for her--until now.

And if you've ever wondered if it makes a difference what you feed your dog...it does. When I got Scout the vet said that buying her premium dog food was a good investment. They eat less of it and can digest it easier so there's not as much waste to pick up later. I've fed her Iams all her life and that has worked out well for us.

Well in Germany we couldn't find Iams so Kevin got some regular Pedigree. Wow, what a difference! The worst part is her breath. I mean yeah, she has stinky dog breath, but with the Pedigree it's so much worse. And we won't mention the other end. Anyway, at Wal Mart tonight I saw they have Purina One, which I think we'll try next. In the meantime we got her some dental chewies. I hope those work!

Purina One is what we've always given our cats (vet's recommendation) and they love it. We tried it with Gypsy but she is way too finicky. For now, we're going with Beneful because it's the only stuff she'll eat. Good luck with Scout's food search!
I think it's so hilarious that there's a Wal-mart in Hamburg. Too funny! :-)

Premium food has the same effect on cats, from what I've seen. I fed mine Iams for a while, then switched to Eukanuba, and while they seem to leave a lot in their litter boxes, it's not nearly as bad as it could be!
