Dog food poisoning – pentobarbital

By | Food for thought, Giveaways, How to Care for a Dog, Organic Dog Food, Puppy Diary, Training a Puppy, Uncategorized | No Comments

I’m upset. No, I’m mad! And I don’t believe in the political “your vote counts” crap, but I do believe that if we put enough pressure on the legislators we can make a difference, huge difference, as big as difference between life and death for many dogs. We can make the use of “rendered meat” illegal! Half of US households have a dog…hey, politicians! it’s a lot of votes for grabs!

The following is my response to the message I received from the reader of my article about pentobarbital poisoning. Below my response, you can find the message from Richard.

Hi Richard,

No, I do not advocate label reading…just the opposite, I’m saying that labels are useless because the government pays attention to little, meaningless details, and at the same time allows major, what you call “mistakes” to happen.

Also I don’t know (do you?) if the owners of the dog that tragically died, did or did not make “the courtesy call” to the manufacturer…

I know what I did in 2007 when my dog was killed by dog food manufacturer…no courtesy calls either! I think I can say that I was excused from doing that.

Instead I made tens of very angry calls to the distributor, retailer, manufacturer and supplier (and yes, many involved cursing and yelling) and quite a few to the lawyers.

No results achieved. Just vented my anger, frustration and learned a lot in the process.

Again, the government failed me, all the stupid regulations failed me, all the labels failed me and the law that is suppose to protect consumers failed me too!

Ah, forgot to mention: NOBODY was to be blamed for the death of my dog, and estimated 18 thousand dogs that died afterwards.

It’s JUST A DOG after all… (and only such ugly creature as homo “sapiens” can say that though…).

I do not expect any legal consequences for Evanger’s or its vendor or whomever they point their finger at…

Remember? IT’S JUST A DOG!

Yeah, maybe for many…but for me BRUNO was a great, beautiful soul that was killed and the killers were not punished despite the fact that they were known.

R.I.P. Bruno.

Peter Pfisterer aka The Dog Mentalist, aka Crusader, aka That Crazy Dog Guy

PS- by the way…we are talking POISON in the food,!

Not salmonella, listeria, or metal shavings (from the machine malfunctioning)! We are talking POISON that you and I know is landing in many dogs’ bowls every day! Is there  more serious threat out there?

I repeat POISON, as in POISON TO EUTHANIZE ANIMALS!

Yes. I agree, there were just two (or a few) POISONED cans, but maybe you want to research how PENTOBARBITAL is introduced into the food chain and how it is showing up in the final product…because even 2 cans of poisoned food is 2 too many!

In a few words: pentobarbital comes from the rendering companies using euthanized animals’ carcasses as a source of “protein products” to supply manufacturers of so called “dog food”. Pentobarbital, due to the nature of so called “dog food” is often hiding in the chunks of the source ingredient, so it is very unevenly distributed in the batch of so called “dog food” being tested, so random testing pretty often will not show any traces of the poison.

Instead of testing the “dog food” for pentobarbital, lets simply forbid the usage of rendered products!

Only the clear regulation forbidding the use of rendered products, and harsh and costly punishment for not following the law, will be effective and will protect the consumers!

For now…I suggest my competitors do what TopDogDinners does: use ONLY INGREDIENTS FDA APPROVED FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION…no pentobarbital there!

 

So Peter,

I’m wondering if you took time to ponder that the two brands recalled were both made by Evanger’s and that only 2 cans have been found out of hundreds of thousands of cans and both were in the same house? 2 cans…one house and one family who didn’t even have the courtesy or concern to call the manufacturer when it happened. Then went right to social media. I’m sad their pet died…but lets try not to over-blow the issue. Haven’t seen any thread about Petsmart canned food containing metal shavings in their cans or Wellness recalling thousands of cans of cat food. Both happened at the same time. I’m not trying to defend Evanger’s…they made their mistakes by not auditing their vendor of many years…but this happens in every segment from raw to kibble to human food all the time. You advocate label reading…Evanger’s Hunk of Beef read: “Beef” How would you like customers to interpret that?

People come and go, pets come and go, we visit places and leave…life goes on.

But sometimes, certain person remains in our memory forever, or particular place let us feel at home, or there happens to be a dog that leaves a mark on our soul.

That mark makes us more human, completes our personality, let us realize what pure heart means, helps us to be a better person…

In my life, that mark’s name is Bruno, and today is the 10th anniversary of his painful death.

BRUNO, my friend, YOU put me on the path of my Crusade, and YOU are the reason so many dogs are healthier and happier now.

Thank you for entering my life, I’ll never forgive myself you left so soon, too soon!

Dog food recall

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I’m running out of words…only curses left! Another dog food recall!

I want to know the explanation companies like that have for the presence of the POISON in their so called “dog food”!

Maybe they need help?…I’ll be glad to help them find the source…it’s easy!

It’s called GREED!…in the form of using carcasses of the euthanized animals as their “dog food” ingredients…

Yes, THIS makes me MAD…but dog owners risking their dogs lives by feeding them crap like that…leave me gasping for air…after yelling WHY?! WHY!? WHY!?

Second company in a week recalling so called “dog food” POISONED WITH PENTOBARBITAL!?!? Really? What is the government doing?…NOTHING!

Most of the general public (even most dog owners) do not know that the government puts a lot of attention into details like the wording on the dog food labels, the order the information is presented…even the size of the font is “important”!

Total stupidity!!! …

Why?…Because dogs do not eat labels, they eat the CRAP that the same “caring” government lets greedy dog food makers call “dog food”! And that crap is perfectly legal, thanks to millions spent by big companies on their lobbyists in Washington.

You are the judge.

You decide if you want to put your dog’s life in danger and use so called “dog food” instead of real food for real dogs. There is difference between “dog food” and food for dogs!

Big one too! As big as the difference between life and death!

My ignorance killed my dog. It took me 7 years to start a Crusade to educate dog owners and make the real food for real dogs!

I don’t want you to go through the pain that took the big chunk of my soul one February night in 2007.

That pain put me on the road I call my Crusade but it’s also my atonement for my ignorance.

I hope you will make better choices than I made in 2007…

How to Relieve your Dog’s Itching

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

How to Relieve your Dog’s Itching

Skin allergies are the second most common reason dogs visited the vet in 2015¹. If this comes as no surprise, you may be one of the thousands of pet owners looking for a solution to their dog’s itching skin problems.

Constant itching is painfully frustrating but there are some things you can do to help remedy the problem.

Itchy skin, reoccurring ear infections, yeasty paws, hair loss, hot spots, stinky body odor, and the more are often the symptom of dog allergies. Your dog’s diet, as well as the environment, can trigger allergic inflammation. Even in dogs that eat hypoallergenic dog food.
Dog Itching is Miserable for Pets and Owners

Dog allergies are miserable and can become more serious than a minor discomfort. The constant scratching and inflammation can break down healthy skin causing skin eruptions or tears in the skin that lead to yeast overgrowth or bacterial infections.

Pet owners often complain that even after spending hundreds of dollars on prescription dog food and medications that can cause serious side effects, the underlying problem is never resolved.

Dog Allergies are Expensive

Last year, Americans spent $15.42 billion at the vet² and a large portion spent was spent on atopic or allergic skin disease, allergic dermatitis. The most common treatment, expensive medications and prescription dog food, only suppress the symptoms of a much bigger problem and the cycle seems unending.

Why Do Dogs Itch?

Dogs itch because they have allergies. It sounds so simple. But in truth, allergies indicate your dog’s body systems are out of balance. Allergies are caused by an overactive immune system. When a dog comes in contact with an allergy trigger, the immune system of a dog with allergies unnaturally responds by flooding the body with histamines.

In dogs, these histamines cause the skin, paws, and ears to itch. Why some dogs have allergies and some don’t is as complex as it is in humans. Genetics, environmental exposures, immune systems, vaccines, stress, nutrition, all play a role.

The itch will not go away until the immune system is balanced. The best way to sooth an over- active immune system is with real species appropriate nutrition and eliminating the triggers that cause the sensitivity.

The typical remedy:

1. Steroids that provide temporary relief by suppressing the immune system (a fix that actually makes the immune system weaker and can shave years off your dog’s life).

2. Dog food that lacks real nutrition and contributes to more health problems down the road.

Dogs with Food Allergies

Dogs may suffer from environmental or food related allergies. Both are caused by immune system dysfunction.

Food allergies may exhibit as face and paw itching, gastrointestinal problems, diarrhea, gas, belching, and vomiting.

Those symptoms also signal a food intolerance to ingredients your dog can’t digest, cause inflammation (also an allergy trigger), and shouldn’t be eaten by carnivores in the first place.

Toxic ingredients and the way in which dog food is processed, under extreme high pressure and heat, removes all the nutrients that can sooth an over active immune system.

Your lovable pet carnivore was designed to eat without being allergic to food but in the world we live in, sometimes it’s hard to know what the best dog food is.

Help for Dog Allergies

What is the best dog food? Food your dog was designed to eat without worry of consuming ingredients that cause inflammation and allergies. Nutrition is a Law of Health that can’t be ignored without repercussions and the foundation upon which health and longevity are built. There is no way around it, kibble and canned dog food (no matter how trendy or expensive) are processed the same and lack the live nutrients and vital enzymes your dog needs to build a strong immune system and fight allergies.

It’s only after the food is processed that manufacturers spray on the vitamins, minerals, and add the flavorings that your dog finds so tasty. Even the highest rated grain free foods that have probiotics and enzymes added to the mix, lack vital nutrients. Think of kibble as the fast food of dog food; a meal in a bag; often tasty but not healthy!

It’s also packed with allergy triggers, such as:

Meat meals, byproducts, petroleum derivatives, molds, wheat, corn, anti-gelling agents, stabilizers, preservatives, colors, artificial flavorings, ethoxyquin, gluten…I can go on and on.

The Solution to Dog Allergies

Species appropriate fresh food is the best dog food for building a strong immune system. Dog food that is free of additives, preservatives, chemicals and all the other nasty fillers can help heal your dog’s immune system and ultimately reduce itching and allergy related problems.

Vitamins, minerals, enzymes in their natural state can be absorbed by your dog’s body to fight infection, cancer, arthritis, and sooth and over reactive immune system.

Feeding fresh food and customizing food ingredients can help allergies or intolerances and is a much healthier way to give your dog a healthier, happier quality of life. In many cases, the money you’ll save at the vet and on prescription dog food will help pay for fresh, unprocessed food.

The speed of how fast your dog responds to a diet made from unprocessed food depends upon many factors-age, overall health, severity of the allergies, toxicity levels, vaccines, and much more.

I have experienced the frustration of an allergy dog and still am. However, since switching my allergy dog to a natural diet, he’s off all medication and his monthly ear infections are a thing of the past. He still has itchy days but no longer suffers intense symptoms. We manage allergy flare ups with natural supplements.

Nutritional Supplements

There are many nutritional supplements that can help relieve an overactive immune system and build overall immunity. Consulting with a Small Animal Wellness Coach can help get you going in the right direction.

Dog itching can be the sign of other serious health problems. This information does not take the place of veterinary advice. You should always consult your vet before making a diagnosis, or stopping medications-which in the case of long term steroid use, can be dangerous.

We wish you and your pet nothing but the best of health.

Where to buy the dog from

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Where to buy the dog from? Much easier is to answer different question: Where you should NOT get the dog from!
I am absolutely, positively sure: Do not get the dog from the pet store!
That is the worst place to do it! I know , this statement will upset a lot of my friends and contacts on Linkedin, but I care about the dogs first, human opinion is secondary….
Most pet store puppies come from the puppy mills – the terrible places, where the females are impregnated over and over again, producing litter after litter of weaker and weaker puppies, plagued by genetic diseases, with short life span – full of visits to the vet..
If you really care about dogs, do not buy puppies from the pet store! Only reduced demand will result in closing the mills – puppy making factories!
Always the best option is the shelter or the rescue group. If you are looking for specific breed – google breed specific rescue organizations. The shelters are full of pure bred dogs too!
If you decide to buy a dog, look for reputable breeder (the one that is a breed enthusiast and do not mix dollar signs with dogs!), call AKC for recommendation or google breed specific clubs.
Pure bred dogs have defined mental and physical characteristics you could be looking for. Let’s say you are an outdoor person spending a lot of time on the boat, you could be looking for a Newfoundland, Labrador or Portuguese water dog (like the president’s… you know…). You are looking for the protector, nanny and ball player – you probably want a Boxer, you need a help on the farm – you want to consider Australian Cattle dog, Blue Heeler, Polish Sheep Dog, Ovcharka…etc
There is a breed for every need and every job. Getting the dog from the reputable breeder you could be almost sure that the puppy will have what you are looking for.
But there is the down side to it. Unfortunately, the cross breeding methods practiced in the past (or nowadays, think: breeders with not-so-good-reputation) resulted in a number of genetic disorders in many dog breeds. Which means expensive visits to the vet. Also are sure you know how to housebreak the puppy? Do you have time for that? Please consider all factors when making your choice!
On the other hand shelter or rescued dogs are most of the time housebroken, come with the full set of shots, spay or neutered and will be great full till the last breath, will love you like you never thought possible. And they will not shy from showing you that love every day, happy or sad, healthy or sick, rested or tired, young or old… they will show you the affection only dogs have. Unfortunately, with that option comes uncertainty of dog’s personality. The shelter’s operators will give you some description of dog’s behavior and history though.

Above all, DO NOT get a dog because there is a blockbuster movie featuring a puppy, or little Johnny keeps asking for a puppy, or it’s Christmas time and puppies make great gifts! It is lifetime commitment, with difficult moments. It comes with many responsibilities and choices to be made. It will limit your free time, require change in the vacation or weekend plans, could be expensive, could create enemies, could even force you to move out, etc.
But if you consider all aspects of the dog ownership and you DO MAKE the conscience decision of getting a dog…get one!
Your life will never be the same, you will laugh more, your heart rate and blood pressure will improve, you kids will be less prone to allergies and more responsible, you will get tons of new friends, you will see the world like you haven’t seen before. Kids with no siblings will learn how to share, and will show proper social behavior faster, you will be amazed how their imagination will explode.
You will be fascinated by the special bond, your dog and you will develop and finally you will understand what others had in mind talking about dogs as a family members.
You can learn a lot from your dog, as they have been learning from us and about us for the last tens of thousands of years.
Of course you will want the best treats for your puppy and the customized food as good as yours (even better than yours but I shouldn’t say it loud), so visit me at TopDogDinners or call me, your Dog Mentalist at (844) 4DOG FOOD.

Bad habits? Bad table manners? Bad dog!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Saying what? Bad habits? Bad table manners? Bad dog!
Wrong! BAD OWNER!
Your dog jumping on your guests? Sleeping on your couch? Begging by the dinner table?
They are, so to say, YOUR bad habits!
You neglected your dog’s education or reinforced bad behavior.
Follow the tips of your Dog Mentalist and you’ll see the change in your furry kid.
Ready to start your reeducation?
Lesson nr 1: Be persistent.
Your dog will try to push the envelope to see how far he can go, but you are smarter than that, aren’t you? Yes, you will be persistent …
Lesson nr 2: Be persistent, establish clear rules and boundaries.
Which means no exceptions! Dogs do not understand the concept of Mondays or Wednesdays. No couch means NO COUCH! It doesn’t mean no jumping on the couch on Tuesdays but it’s OK to get on it during weekends.
Lesson nr 3: Be persistent, establish clear rules and boundaries and praise, praise and praise some more!
Dogs are like kids – they feel better knowing, there is a set of boundaries they need to adhere to. And remember – your dog will die for you without any hesitation, so he will definitely lay down on his bed when you tell him to, but you need to say it in the language your dog understands. And he loves to be rewarded for a good job –just like you do- but the reward must be instant! Hmmm…one important difference: you prefer to be rewarded with a fat check, your dog prefers a lavish praise or/and treat and time spent with you.
Lesson nr 4: Read lesson 1, 2 and 3 one more time.

You’ve got a general rule, now some of your dog’s common bad habits:
• Jumping on you or your friends…
Most of the time, people back off trying to push dog’s paws away – wrong! Do just the opposite, walk forward, put the dog in the uncomfortable position, make him to walk backwards on his hind legs…after a few attempts, he will give up.
• Your favorite spot on the couch is taken?…
Most of the time you let your puppy on the couch before because “he is soooo cute”. Never let it happen! Never make an exception! Why? Because it will be very difficult to correct it. Your dog will always try to get on that couch…
• You have a four legged beggar at your table?…
Again, most of the time it’s your fault! Never feed your dog by the table! Create a healthy habit of feeding your puppy at the same time and in the same, quiet spot – it will help you to house break the dog, and will be healthy for the puppy.

Now your bad habits:
• Never yell at the dog – he’s got excellent hearing. To get dog’s attention use stern voice, short words, do not keep repeating (Sit, sit, sit, sit…). If your dog does not react, divert his attention, walk him a few steps, turn around, try again: Sit!
• Never hit a dog – Do I really have to say it?!?! OK, I already said that…Dogs have a high pain threshold, so punishing will not work, the result will be insecure, sometimes dangerous dog, focused on the pain not on the training. Be patient, encourage the dog and praise, praise, praise!
• Use the same, simple commands or hand signals or both.
• Keep your lessons short (30-50 min) and always stop when you notice that the dog is not paying attention any more.
• Repeat the exercises every couple of weeks to maintain the dog’s memory.
• Keep the dog busy (especially working breeds!), well hydrated, well fed with the highest quality food from and…exhausted. Remember – tired dog is a happy dog.
• Socialize your puppy, especially if belongs to a large breed.
• Divert dog’s attention when he is up to something bad.
• The best punishing tool is your disappointment and dog’s time out.
• Smart dogs have the mental capacity of 3-4 years old child (to some degree) so do not expect solving complex problems, guide your dog to the solution using positive reinforcement.
• Praise, praise, praise!

..and create a habit for yourself: Read the tips of your Dog Mentalist

Excessive paw licking or chewing

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Excessive paw licking or chewing could be the result of food allergies and/or yeast infection.
The problem could be really serious – dogs can chew and lick their paws till the raw flesh is exposed…and keep chewing.
The issue left untreated could lead to serious infections.
You can try this simple application that could help to fight it.

Yeast thrive in a moist environment and in dark, hard to reach places – like between foot pads, in armpit and groin area or around the vulva and anus. Disinfecting and proper care of those parts of a yeasty dog is crucial.

You can use plastic container filled with the below detailed solution, to soak the dog’s feet. The goal is to soak the dog’s feet for 10-15 min, then pat them dry with the paper towel.

Don’t cheat! Spraying dog’s paws will not work! Yeast lives under the nail beds and in all the creases you can’t get to unless dog’s paws aren’t submerged in the solution.

Combine a gallon of water, a cup of hydrogen peroxide, and 1-4 cups of white vinegar at room temperature. It is recommended to use this solution as many times a day as necessary to keep your dog’s feet clean. ‘Clean and dry’ needs to become your routine. There’s no need to rinse. Just pat the paws dry. Leaving the solution dried on your dog’s paws serves as an antifungal and should also reduce licking and digging at the paws.

I always recommend testing dogs for food allergies.
Using highest quality wholesome, fresh, natural and organic dog food like www.TopDogDiners.com will help you resolve many health problems of your dog, and will save you tons of money on vets visits.

Old dog, new tricks? Useless tricks and usefull ones you can teach your dog.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

As old saying goes: You can’t teach the old dog new tricks.

False! You can and in fact you should.

You are so proud, your puppy can rollover! Your puppy can play dead…or walk on two legs, just like you!
Yes, maybe…but what for? Why?
Do not waste your time teaching your dog useless tricks.
Spend that time better, teach your puppy the tricks that you can use and need, just remember, make it fun for the dog and repeat periodically.
The most useful is sit/stay command.
Sometimes it could save your puppy’s life, or your time, sometimes it will be just convenient, other times, plain necessary, you will use it at the hotel or at the airport, at vet’s office or dog park, encountering wild life or other dogs, having friends over or your kids playing with neighbors…
If you want to know how to train your dog to sit and stay, let your Dog Mentalist help you!

Animal Digest

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Just the name itself makes it sound gross. What exactly is animal digest? The AAFCO states that “digest is produced by the chemical or enzymatic hydrolysis of clean animal tissue that has not undergone decomposition. These animal tissues may not include hair, horns, teeth, hooves, and feathers, with the exclusion of trace amounts that are unavoidable even after acceptable processing methods.” Eww! Yeah it’s all the animal parts that humans don’t want. Basically what I’m hearing is that if a few horns or feathers are left on the animal it’s ok because there’s nothing you can do about it. There is no way to be certain where the animal digest comes from, I’ve heard that some animal digest can actually come from deceased animals, animals with diseases, ones that are already dying before they get to the slaughterhouse. I’ve read that animal digest can be brewed into a broth made out of “unspecified animal parts from unspecified animals”. Animal digest gets put into dog food after it has been treated with different sorts of acids, heat and enzymes, this is what makes it legal for dog food companies to call it “natural flavoring”. Next time you try to feed your pet something with “natural flavoring” remember its most likely animal parts you would not want to eat yourself, so why would you feed it to your pet?

Our Mission To Expose the Truth

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Our mission is to expose the truth. We want dog owners to know the harmful ingredients that are in the food they are currently giving their dogs. We will expose every single product that is on the market today and every single bad ingredient that is in the product. Every day we will be exposing a new ingredient, we will do so until every harmful ingredient is discussed. Stay tuned

GROUNDED YELLOW CORN: Is it bad for your dog? YES

There are several myths about corn that I’m about to debunk. Let’s start with corn being high in anti-oxidants and minerals. Says who and what are we comparing it to? People believe that corn has a low glycemic index, actually corn scores 53 on the list. The glycerin index helps us measure how fast and how much food will get blood sugar levels of animals to rise; the higher the index, the greater risk of unhealthy rise in your dogs blood sugar.
Another myth I’ve heard is that corn doesn’t cause allergies. Seriously?!? I’ve heard of people being allergic to the sun, I’m not going to believe that no dog or human can ever be allergic to corn. The issue isn’t really with corn itself, but the quality of the grain, especially when it’s grounded up. Who knows what they ground the corn with.

It’s very common for large amounts of grains to get infested with storage mites, their droppings, and expired carcasses. All of these cause allergies in dogs, why would you want to risk an allergic reaction in your furry friend?
Corn is a good source of energy. No its not! For dogs, who are carnivores, meat proteins beat corn. Corn is basically just a carb, a dog’s digestive system utilizes only small amounts of carbs.
Corn basically serves as a filler, there is nothing nutritional about it. Most commercially sold products that contain corn are benefiting the manufactures only, not the dogs. Corn or carbohydrates are cheap for them. Only low quality dog foods use corn as their first ingredient because it’s much cheaper than meat.
Many dogs can be sensitive to corn and because of that they may chew at their paws or scratch themselves greatly. Because of this your dog may develop a skin infection or an acute moist dermatitis (a red, moist, hot and irritated lesions), even hair loss. Dogs that are allergic to corn are more sensitive, they defecate twice as much as other dogs. Dogs can develop all sorts of infections from corn. Letting your dog eat corn can cause a lot of damage. Rethink it.

Where to buy the dog from?

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Where to buy the dog from? Much easier is to answer different question: Where you should NOT get the dog from!
I am absolutely, positively sure: Do not get the dog from the pet store!
Most pet store puppies come from the puppy mills -the terrible places, where the females are impregnated over and over again, producing litter after litter of weaker and weaker puppies, plagued by genetic diseases, with short life span – full of visits to the vet..
That is the worst place to get a puppy!
Need to find out the right place?

New dog – family member in your house

It happened. You made your decision.
You have a dog at your home!
Here are your puppy needs :
- name (short , clear, possibly not human),
- bed (easy to clean, not too soft, placed in the same, quiet spot, away from  the heater or drafts)
- crate…hmm…that is popular solution I rather advice against, but has its pluses
- water bowl (always full of fresh water)
- food bowl (stainless steel is the best, could be ceramic too)
- brush, comb (designed for the specific type of the coat)
- pee pads (if not house broken, as temporary help only!)
- leash, collar (sized properly for the dog)
- poop bags
- tooth brush, paste (yes! especially if you do not use the highest quality food)
- food ( I strongly advice the fresh, natural , wholesome TopDogDinners food – will pay off in the long run)
- toys (good quality, durable, safe )
- vet (possibly recommended by friends or family)
- groomer (depending on the coat, recommended preferred)
- trainer (optional but suggested, if you have no time or no experience or neither)
- house dog proofed (yes, you could be surprised how resourceful dogs are-my answered the phones, put the stove on, defrosted the food on the heated floor etc.)
- YOU  ( that is the most important part of your dogs life)
