We went to Petsmart to buy food for Andy-Bear and boy were we in for a rude awakening! We spent a whopping $123 on food alone! On the drive back home Gavin, our 5 year old, must have heard us talking about how much we had just spent on dog food and he asked us "Why don't we just feed Andy pizza like us? It's like... only $5... or something... and it tastes really good. Well, at least me and my brother like it!" We couldn't help but laugh.... I love the things kids say! LOL Unfortunately Andy-Bear can't partake in our love for pizza so I'm hoping this 30 lb bag of food lasts him the whole month or longer... but the way this puppy eats... psh... I'm having my doubts. I'm pretty sure he went through a 15 lb bag in 1 week! Okay, I'm exaggerating, it was longer than that but it just seemed like the bag finished so quickly! We decided to be smart this time and buy the 30 lb bag and we threw in some canned food to give him a few flavor choices.. I just wasn't expecting to walk out of there having spent as much as we did. LOL
After I put his kibbles in the vittles vault (which by the way is an AWESOME pet food container) I started stocking the shelves with his new canned food. This was his line up:
That's when it hit me!...... The dog eats better than we do! Needless to say, I felt guilty during dinner because my kids were eating pizza (again) and the dog was eating Country Chicken Stew. Which, by the way, smelled sooo good! It had REAL chicken chunks, vegetables and potatoes in it... I was wowed! Andy absolutely loved it and he even asked for seconds! With science diet he hardly ever ate his food and it sure didn't smell anywhere near as good as this food did!
Moral of the story..... We need to eat more like the dog!
As much as our family likes pizza (we eat it most days out of the week) I'm sure they would LOVE a home cooked meal! So please feel free to send any quick & easy recipes or great cooking websites my way!
