    Default What do you feed your truck dawgs?

    Is there a reason I can't feed my wife's very active Boston Terror Eukanuba 30/20 just like my working dogs? I know I need to adjust the amount to his body condition. Are there any other concerns?

    My truck dog and my working dog both get the same food. Oh wait. They are the same dog.

    Don't do it!!!! The Boston will develop an intense desire to retrieve and line 100+yrd water blinds with a huge water entry!!! Unfortunately with his smushed up muzzle, all bumpers would be cigared and birds will be drug through the mud and sand by their feet and/or necks

    Nothing wrong with it, really. Look at the fat/protein ratio for most small breed premium dog foods and you will find the same if not higher ratio in their foods, especially with the puppy formulas. I feed a small breed puppy formula to my geriatric dog for that reason, plus it is soy, corn, and wheat free, and has smaller kibble for his worn teeth. It helps keep his ears yeast free and his muscle tone at a premium level which he needs since he is 10 yrs old and only has three legs.

    Mine has a definite preference for Jimmy Dean Turkey sausage. If bitter conditions prevail, she will occaisionally agreee to Beggin Strips.

    BTW Ms. Mills- buck nekkid pictures of front seat rugs is definitely discouraged here on peanut having RTF. Please get that poor marsh mop a bandanna before she is embarrassed in public.

    Ms. Becky,

    If Scotty has had any influence on your "seat rug" the peanut joke is just as shamefull as the bandana joke!

    Thanks for your responses. I was tired of remembering to pick up the little man's food.
