11:14 pm: dog fud
I have a big dog, who has been eating Wellness Core, and a little dog, who has been eating Newmans Own, which, I learn from that review site, is not actually a very good dog food. I get both dog foods delivered by Amazon Subscribe&Save. Last month Amazon couldn't get any Newmans Own, so I have been mixing some Wellness Core into the little dog's food to stretch it out. This month, Amazon does have Newmans again, but at $35.11 for the 12.5-lb bag that they charged me $20.32 for, last shipment.

I've been feeding them different foods because I assumed that the little dog, who is really very little, needed a smaller kibble size. But he is eating the big dog's kibble just fine. Is there any reason not to feed them both the same (better quality) food?

Not that I know of. I mean, a dog will happily eat a steak, and a steak is bigger than a kibble, right?

You know, I think my wife sometimes gets annoyed that I don't really laugh that much. I smile, I grin, I say, "Yeah, that's really funny." But I don't usually really fall over laughing.

That one? Makes me fall over laughing unable to breathe. Every time.

Lily, at least, will happily eat any size kibble that is presented to her.
If dogs eat competitively, larger kibble can present a choking hazard. But if the little one gnaws industriously away rather than trying to eat as fast as possible, I don't think it should be a problem.

I had thought that Luna's larger adult dog kibble would at least dissuade the CATS from sharking her food, but NOPE. I see no reason the little dog shouldn't eat a bigger kibble, if he's having no trouble with it.
