new dog food and shampoo!

Our CFR told us about a cheaper food that GDB has approved. It is Purina One Lamb and Rice Puppy. She said we could feed the dogs this until they are a year old when we need to switch them to Science Diet Lamb and Rice Adult so they will be ready for recall. This food is so much cheaper! It's about $25 a bag instead of $45. And the best doesn't have the stinky fish smell that Science Diet has. I switched Betsy to it about 2 months ago and so far so good!

I also found a new shampoo! It is simply equal parts clear hand soap and white vingar. I know, it sounds really weird, but I swear it works great! The very first day Betsy smells like vingar but the next day she smells like puppy! It makes her super soft and shinny. For me this is a great soap. It works the same as expensive dog shampoo but it's cheaper. And I can use as much as I want and not worry about wasting it.

As you can tell I like to save money!

I am glad there are now some more economical food choices for the pups! The shampoo does sound weird: but we have used vinegar as a floor cleaner for YEARS and I know how gentle and effective it is!

Thanks for the tips! We have been considering changing Cartier's food (Eukanuba is just NOT working with his system) so I will ask our CFR about using Purina.
