    Default National Dog Show

    After the MACYS Thanksgiving day parade i started watching (sporadically )
    the Natuonal Dog Show...
    Anyways , it appears to be sponsored by Purina.
    Ine of the commercials is for Purina's Pro Plan dog food. It states that
    10 of the top ten AKC Champions are fed Pro Plan.

    Can that be true ...?

    No way it is true.... they may sponsor and give the food to the owners, but I would seriously doubt the dogs are eating that crap.

    I know a lot of dog owners that treat their dogs like their human kids except they feed them purina or pedigree. Doesn't make sense to me.

    Probably never read the ingredients or researched what is really good food opposed to what the media and advertising makes you think is

    Well, as a good fur momma, you know I was asking everyone what they feed their dog, and nobody and I mean nobody said Purina, and Purina was giving the stuff away, cat food and dog, all in cans, they had blonde hair'd beauty's running around giving the stuff away, Truth! Sorry Purina for blowing the whistle.

    It took years to knock sense into me. I used to feed grocery store junk and someone begged me to try Iams back in the mid 90's. I did and was so happy.

    Then I went on the next 15 years or so not knowing that iams was a decent food gone bad, don't know how good it even was when I started to be truthful, but it took EBN to open my eyes. Then came 1000's of hours of research and another year of food trials.

    It all boils down to education, and I was as stubborn as they come when it came to changing to a good dog food. And I am at least thankful that feeding your dog a great dog food is starting to be 'trendy' but unfortunately many people will never ever spend that extra $30 a month to get their dog a great food. So Purina will probably be the sponsor of this show and many other things because we know the $$$$ they have goes into advertising and NOT into the food.

    Oh yeah, we all did it / some still do it. The woman with the bully winner said she's tried at least 20 different kinds of food til she found what works for this particular dog. So shopping around for what works for you is perfectly fine. If your dog has problems with a food, thank goodness they make more than one kind. And hopefully the owner is smart enough to try something better.

    What most pple i argue with don't understand is that i may pay more at the counter for my dog food but in the long run it adds up to the same or even less for me That crap they feed them is full of fillers which mean they eat it and it and then are hungry again. My dog eats less because she is truely full (of nutrients) and will less too! Less Lower amount of food consumed and its good for her. Win win win for me..... :hahaha:

    Everytime that commercial came on, I said outloud: "BULLSH*T". I don't believe it.
