We had to go to Petsmart to get some dog and cat food. Sure, you can get pet food in any grocery or discount store. But we discovered years ago that better pet food means fewer trips to the vet. And the "processed" pet food is less objectionable. Slightly.
I noticed that the giant dog beds we get for RJ were on sale. The cover of his has been washed multiple times and the fabric is getting a bit thin. Plus there is a big dent where he likes to sleep.
I guess his humans haven't been turning it around frequently enough. You can't get good help these days.
So RJ got a brand new bed. He always takes great interest in his new beds. This one is a bit smaller, but still more than adequate for one medium sized dog. He gets a new one about once a year. Lots of sniffing going on.
And because we have to bring him a treat for his oral fixation, he got a cow part. He likes many sorts of cow parts. This time it was a hoof.
The neighbor down the street has a puppy he keeps in a small chain link kennel. All day and night. He has a simple plastic dog house. And that's it. It was 20 degrees yesterday morning.
Some would say we spoil our dog. RJ is a rescue dog, so he may agree. But he is a very good boy and works hard to deserve it. You know, for a dog.
