The recall is expanding…


Here is another link to a very extensive/thorough list of the pet foods that have been recalled.  Bear in mind I don’t think there are many pets getting sick from the food, but quite a few people have.

I say better safe than sorry, wash those hands friends.

This is what I got to do yesterday on my day off… re-organize the deep freezer.  Mainly because I will be getting in more raw food for the dogs so I needed to know where I was putting it.  And also so I can tell the Mr. where various meats are.  This will com in handy since we recently bought a gas grill


Nice huh?? It will allow us to grill a lot more often than our charcoal hassle one.  Which means that hopefully there will be less oven heat to heat up our lil apartment, whoooooo.

The directions were not half as bad as they look, I follow each and every one… even when it seemed like things couldn’t possibly fit, I made it happen. Also spent 20 minutes fixing one of their mistakes in construction.  But in the end I was left with no screws or washers left over, and it didn’t blow up the first time we used it. So I would call that a success.

Another success??  I did not find too many surprises in the freezer.   Which means that though it got unorganized I still knew where things were and what things were.  One thing I did realize is how many random pieces of meat/bones I have collected for the dogs. I think once this bag of kibble is gone or nearly, I will be trying Luna on a bit of a raw diet, if only to use up our stockpile and make room for other things.  I found a local butcher who will supply us with some items we can’t find in stores.  I am probably the only vegetarian who is excited about this.

In any case, whatever you feed your dogs, do yourself a favor and at least sanitize your hands after.  Nobody likes being sick right?

    Putting together a gas grill can be a challenge. For some reason you always have to alter the written instructions…lol.

    We had quite the week. It seems that when our Chessie’s get to about 6 months old, the food that worked for them no longer does. We went through it with Thunder and Storm. It took us about a year to find a food that worked for them, (and luckily worked for both). Now puppy had similar issues to those Storm had at about the same age (or it could have been the goose poop he snagged one day while training ;)). We had to take Freighter to the vet because home remedies weren’t working. We mentioned to the vet that pup had been on Diamond food but it wasn’t part of the recall. She did not seem concerned about it. I agree with what you wrote in your prior post…I don’t think dogs are as susceptible to salmonella otherwise dogs eating raw food would be susceptible to becoming sick and what about picking up a duck at a hunt test (those are raised).

    Anyway we are now changing Freighter to a puppy formula of what the big dogs are eating and hoping that works for him. I hope we don’t have to take a year to find the right food for him.
