Blue Buffalo can suck it

If I had a dollar for every silly conversation I’ve had like this, I’d be able to draw full time. A few things…

I don’t care how expensive your dog food is (pssst, neither does your dog). I don’t care how many qualifiers go in front of it. But here’s a question, do any of you care as much about what you put into your own bodies as what you think you’re putting into your dog’s?dogfood If you’re slurping soda while you’re telling me how pure your dog’s food is, you’re an idiot.

Corn sucks because of the role it plays in our food industry and how heavily subsidized it is, not because it’s an allergen. News Flash: the corn and soy is not what’s making your dog itch, it’s the protein source, bozo.

Grain free is not a bad diet choice. It becomes one when people who don’t have sense make their dogs obese from the calorie-rich, all-protein, all the time bonanza.

Wolves eat raw food because they hunt. Your 6 pound yorkie doesn’t need to choke down raw food to get what they need nutritionally. Also, wolves are omnivores, just like us and just like dogs. It’s not some biological heresy to feed your dog a food with grain in it.

Lastly, don’t tell me how “spoiled” your dog is because you’re the poor dope who buys dog food that costs more than your cell phone bill yet you can’t seem to scrounge the money to keep its vaccines current.

This is everyday, man. Everyday.

And I don’t mean to pick on Blue Buffalo but they’ve come to embody all that is misinformed about how people shop for their dogs.

More mornings than not

This particular morning, Estelle (pictured destroying my only pair of dressy heels) inspired this comic because as soon as she hopped off the bed I freaking KNEW she was pissing in the kitchen. I was proven right when I got up 20 minutes later.

It’s hard weighing the benefits of snuggling with fuzzy, purring creatures with the costs of staying in bed so long their tiny bladders get the better of their training.
