This month, Mummy miscalculated and we were without our regular Honey’s food for two days. Tsk! Tsk!
OK, we did not starve as Mummy substituted our regular raw dinners from Honey’s with minced raw beef and pork plus the usual chopped up carrots and peas. I ate everything as I normally do, but it was rather surprising that Georgie wasn’t into it. Can you imagine that? Scavenger George turned his nose up on minced meat from the local butcher’s!!! Is he like the reverse snob, or what?!?!?!
But the food order arrived yesterday and our freezer has been replenished. George was the most delighted.George didn’t know Mummy had unpacked the box – so he was a little concerned what happened to all that food – … one minute it was there and when he turned his back, there were none! So he got into the box – desperately looking for the missing food. Silly Georgie!
While I sat and read the annual Christmas letter from Honey’s.May’s comment: Oops! Mis-timed this month’s order. Too late ordering on Thursday afternoon, so no overnight delivery on Friday – which meant the whole weekend before Monday comes along and the food is dispatched. No panic. Just substituted it but George wasn’t keen on the minced meat from the butcher’s!!!! He never turns down anything! He turned down freshly minced meat. What?!?!?! Darcy on the other hand wolfed it all down. She would eat anything.
I was adamant that I would never feed my dog wet food, never mind raw – strictly for my convenience when we travel. But too many runny tummies, was told Spaniels have very delicate tummies and Miss Da must have a lot of spaniel in her, I reluctantly switched. Well, actually I was desperate to find something that wouldn’t make her poo go all runny every few weeks and numerous trips to the vet. After many walks in the park and discussing our dog poos with every other dog owner, we hesitatingly switched over to raw almost three years ago. Never looked back.
There are many other raw options but I like that Honey’s Real Dog Food are the only dog food producer in the country that is committed to using 100% free-range and/or organic and/or wild British meat suitable for human consumption. They have done so for moral reasons but also for nutritional reasons. We’re happy.
