Thank you so much!! Whew. Never ran for dog food so fast!!
Love your posts @aunt-deb


You're most welcome! We have to make sure our critters are safe. Thanks for the encouragement!

I was thinking of switching up my dogs meals, now I know what not to buy! Thank you!


Glad the heads up helped! Oh, and do the change-over gradually as some dogs will get diarrhea if the switch is too sudden. No one wants to deal with that...

Have to keep up with these more often now. The kids got two black labs. I forget what kind they are called. I know there hair grows longer.

I hope all is well. Have a wonderful weekend!

It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t check on you this week. Seeds sprouting? You making progress? If you are getting grouchy then you are on the mend. Missing you my friend.❤️🐓🐓
