The Switch

We got an e-bark from Lil several weeks back about how the Holmhaven Collies have switched to a new dog food.  Dad has noticed that over time Essex has been getting more finicky about eating, so he decided to give it a try, as he knows Lil always does her Holm Work (we are being punny) and gives us good advice.

The brand we are switching to is called Merrick.  We went with the grain free "Real Texas Beef and Sweet Potato Recipe" at the recommendation of Lil's Collies.  Now Dad realizes can't change food super quick, unless you like the smell of dog poo.  So for the next several days a quarter of our food will be Merrick the rest Purina O.N.E.  Essex has been on Purina for all most a decade.  However, Dad noticed Essex wasn't quite as hungry as she used to be.  So we decided to switch, starting today.
Essex, Do You Think This Stuff Will Taste Good?
Our Old Brand
When Dad put the food down, it was gone in minutes.  He doesn't ever remember that happening.  Both of us loved the taste of the new food.  We told him we give it eight paws up.  We'd give it more, but we only have eight paws between the two of us.

Paw Esss, Dad told us that this Sunday will be a special day.  We wonder why?  Perhaps one of you can give us a hint.

Dog Speed,

Essex & Sherman

Mom has four digger end foods for us that she rotates.....wouldn't you get tired of eating the same old thing day after day. We gave Origen six fish, then buffalo and venison , then a salon and rabbit and then a venison fish mix. They are grain free and all artificial stuff in them
