It’s a nice thought but…
Suddenly it seems our neighbors have decided that we don't suck. Not sure why. Well I kinda am. I've called the cops twice in the past week on the guy who thinks it's a good idea to walk his untrained dog off leash (she went after Qay who told her off... no teeth, thank goodness.. and the guy laughed.. LAUGHED! He heard a few choice words from me). And suddently the neighborhood is all about us. There is one guy who at first glance I really didn't care for and I really didn't want to know him. Shows me.. he's a decent guy. His neighbor on the right buys cookies for his dogs and he has too many.. he said do you want some? So sure! Um.. ick.. they are NASTY. I won't tell you what they are, but here are the ingredients: Emphasis is mine
Ingredients Beef, Meat By-Products, Soy Grits, Sugar, Liver, Salt, Propylene Glycol, Garlic Powder, Caramel Color, Natural Smoke Flavor, Potassium Sorbate (used as a preservative),Sodium Nitrite (for color retention), Red 40, BHA (used as a preservative), Onion Extract.
YUCK! So we politely took them (6 bags... ew!) and fed one to each dog as a to be nice and the dogs loved them.. for about 20 minutes and then they turned green.. I would to. ICK! I brought them in to work, dropped them on the breakroom table with a note that said "FREE". They were gone by lunch. Tonight I was walking Targ and here comes Mr. Free Treats... one more bag of the nasties.. Targ has evidently forgotten that they made him ill, because he is all about the icky yellow bag. Yeh, these are a variation on a theme:
Ingredients: Wheat flour, beef, soy flour, corn syrup, water sufficient for processing, propylene glycol, liver, animal fat (BHA and citric acid used as preservatives), dried cheese product, chicken by-product meal, calcium sulfate, potassium chloride, salt, phosphoric acid, soybean oil (BHA used as a preservative), titanium dioxide, garlic powder, sorbic acid (used as a preservative), onion powder, potassium sorbate (used as a preservative), natural flavor, yellow 6, yellow 5, red 40, BHA (used as a preservative), citric acid (used as a preservative)
Oh my gawd.. double yuck. I said "Let's wait till we get home because if I give one to him, and not his sisters, I'll never live it down". Gawd help me.. save me from the stinky carcinagens in plastic resealable bags.

  1. When you know better, you do better (I hope). It’s just recently I’ve been paying really, really close attention to those ingredient lists – I’d always thought if I was buying a “premium” brand it ought to be good stuff. Oh well. At least we’re finally on the right track – and the dogs are so much happier for it!

  2. Yikes – those are really awful ingredients. Lucky my Mum was raised on good ingredients and now she has me on good ones too…….we found you from the meme! Glad to meet ya!
