Dickson’s Farmstand is selling “dog food” for $5 per lb. as far as I can see, it is made from local beef, pork, and some sweet potato, apple and carrot.

You see where I am going with this.

Boeuf aux carrotes was the only thing our family dog could keep down when she got parvovirus.

Dog food, oh, yeh.   There were two upscale butchers in my neighborhood.   I used one for people and the other for its dog food: 1 lb chunks of frozen spare parts.    The butcher at the latter used to look questioningly at our hail and rosy cheesed toddler, wondering, I am sure, if he were thriving on this "hamburger".

 

At the same time, our Old English Sheepdog found food value in everything in the house, food or furniture, except carrots.   He would address a bowl of leftovers with gusto, scarfing, slurping, gulping...and licking clean every slice of carrot, leaving a perfectly clean bowl with a floor of.carrots.


It's not my circus,

not my monkeys.

Our dog was also an Old English Sheepdog, with the same appetite for sofas, but was okay with carrots.  :D

Cat food, no. I did try it as a toddler. But then I also tried soap and sponges.

Old English Sheepdogs, from what I've heard (since I've only owned mutts), only like their carrots fondant.

My cats of course like the fancier cat food, but the kitten happily eats paper too.

Yep...mine is one of the finicky-est eaters ever...except when it come to stuff she shouldn't eat.
