Some people have pointed out a scatological interpretation of my blog title. Whatever floats your boat. Today I’m gonna go there. I’m having serious problems with the giant dog in that arena.
We got him from the rescue organization with several bags of fancy-schmancy food that cost a fortune. I kept buying the stuff because what do I know about feeding Great Danes?
But God, the poop! The mountains of poop! On a trip to visit Zeb’s family, Blue took to eating their dog’s kibble, just some grocery store stuff but he liked it and it didn’t go right through him so I switched. No problem.
Until a couple months ago he experienced severe butt-squirts and we got on the intervention train of antibiotics, pro-biotics, homemade food, etc. I worried that the cheapo food was the problem. The lady at Petsmart lectured me about how I was pretty much killing my dog by feeding him Beneful. I was like, “Lady, he’s a Dane. They only live eight years anyway.”
But her lecture hit a nerve and I started him on Rachel Ray’s Nutrish (wince) dog food because it is low-ingredient and everyone says that is better for dogs. Yes, it isn’t the best food in the world but he goes through a pound a day, I can’t afford the super expensive stuff.
Nowhere on the ingredient list is psyllium fiber husk which I swear it must be made of. It is unbelievable how many times I have to pick up after him. Yesterday we counted 10 craps. TEN! And they weren’t little piddly ones, they were the real deal. Does anyone out there have a big dog with a squirrelly stomach? I need budget dog food that stays put.
Is there a reason that I am swimming in crap? Have I brought this upon myself in a woowoo karma kind of way?
Speaking of crap, time to cut it.
I’m starting with this stuff. Get it out of here!
Look at all these key fobs. Zeb says a Japanese person will buy them all. Okaaaay. Have at it. JAPANESE AUCTION.
And luggage tags. Any takers? DONATE.
