My dog, Abbie is over 10 years old, and her interest in play and going for a walk was slipping away. Aside from her age, she seemed in pretty good shape. Trips to the vet showed no apparent problems. I began to worry after hearing about problems with name brand dog foods with processes from China, I began to get suspicious. I use to buy named brand dog foods from stores like Costco, Target, etc. When I was getting our chicken feed from our feed store, I stopped at the stacks of dog food displayed on their floor. “Hay, are any of your dog foods without Chinese ingredients?” The lady behind the counter was out from behind her counter and stomping up to me, “NONE OF OUR FOODS HAVE CHINESE PRODUCTS! WE ARE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT THAT!” She then informed me that most feed stores follow that practice. I had obviously stumbled upon a very sensitive subject. I didn't recognize any of the brand names, but her emphatic posture sold me. I brought a 50 pound bag home and started feeding our three dogs the feed store food. BIG DIFFERENCE Abbie is now chasing and tumbling around with the two younger dogs. This afternoon, she bolted out the door with back-hair standing straight up leading the two young ones, showing them how to chase Mr. Coyote away from the chicken yard. I took comfort in buying name brand dog foods, thinking I was buying quality insurance. What I find was that I was really buying profit insurance – for the company.
