I love food. I love to eat. This is something I inherited from my mom's side of the family. It is actually rather impressive the amount of food I can consume in a day (thank you Poppa!). I also have a wicked sweet tooth (thanks to my dad's side of the family too!). However, unlike most people who love eating, I hate cooking. Several times a week my husband is out and I am forced to feed myself. I have some simple staples I will make. The reality is that without a cook, I would probably starve.
One thing I have learned is that I don't think a lot about what I am putting in my own body, so it is really no surprise that I don't really think about what my pets are eating. My basic strategy is to do what the vets says, watch their weight and limit treats. However, from reading other blogs, I have realized that I need to be thinking more about what they eat. This is the problem with following other people's blogs, sometimes it gives you dog owner guilt!
So my new goal is to start researching food. I see that Liz from the Ottawa Dog Blog makes all her own dog food. I don't think this is a good option for me. I think one should be able to feed oneself before they feed their dog! I have seen lots of posts about raw diet vs prepackaged foods and posts on what prepackaged foods are better. So I need to go back and look and figure out what my cats and dog should be having.
Hailey says she is all for this as long as I don't take her Greenies away. When presented with a Kong filled with peanut butter and treats and a Greenie, the Greenie always wins!
