Tanner Does Dishes for Oliver

There's not much that takes priority over mealtime for the pups in our home. Serving healthy food is a big deal, and with the flood of information from commercials trying to sell all manner of pet food that is deemed "healthy and tasty", it's easy for even the most experienced dog owner to have trouble figuring out what's best for Fido.
A recent article published by Castor and Pollux on their blog points out some of the differences among major national brands. You may find some interesting tips there, as well as some of the articles written here on my own food choices and the reasons for them.
Before we name the winners of this week's Organix food giveaway, I'd love to thank all of you who participated in my Scavenger Hunt. This was a first for me. Did you enjoy it? Let me know if you think this is an interesting approach to helping you find information on my blog. I'm always looking for creative new ideas.
Sixty of you entered to win a 5.25 lb. bag of food. That will feed your toy-sized dog for a good while, although not so much for your larger pup. I know Tanner could down it in the blink of an eye. Nevertheless, it's a good enough opportunity to see how your Fido fares on a high quality diet. I hope you'll continue to watch for additional giveaways, and may consider making a permanent switch. Your vet bills will likely show the difference in foods.
This week's six winners who will receive a coupon for a free 5.25 lb. bag of the Organix pet food of their choice are John Pruiett, Anna Galanos, Katie Mitchell, Cynthia Downer, Theresa Waid, and Frank. You'll each be receiving an email in the next 24 hours from AllThingsDogBlog@gmail.com. Please respond promptly with your mailing address and your coupon will go out as quickly as possible. Congratulations and good luck with your transition. You can check Castor and Pollux' site for help with this here. It is important to do this properly to make sure Fido doesn't has digestive issues when changing diets.
While you're here, be sure to stop by Fido's Freebie Friday to see what's new in giveaways for this week. Happy tails!
