What do you like about this subject?

Dogs LOVE food- would they really choose to eat dry or canned dog food given a choice? Would YOU want to eat the same thing every meal every day? is that HEALTHY??? Those consumers that love dogs should read the teeny print on pet food labels and research ingredients that they can't pronounce or don't recognize.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Dogs have been our companions for 10,000 years. Commercial pet food was created in the 1950s. What were they eating for centuries before kibble was invented??? hmmm.
