Hello dog lovers, my name is Luke, and thank you for visiting my site! Like you, I have had the pleasure of having a number of four-legged companions throughout my lifetime. The pain of losing one of our pets is not an easy one, and I have dedicated myself to finding every possible resource to enhance the health and happiness of our beloved animals.
It’s not just my dog, it’s family …
I never understood why someone would buy or rescue a dog, and leave it tied up in the backyard for day after day. Just never made sense to me, and to be honest, infuriated me! I probably go a bit overboard in the other direction, as all of my dogs have enjoyed the same comforts as I do. Sleeping on couches and beds, eating “people” food when appropriate, enjoying healthy treats and having their belly rubbed daily. After all, these animals are just an extension of our families, and their health and happiness is extremely important to all of us!
A painful lesson …
Unfortunately, our four-legged companions just don’t have the lifespan that any us would like. Through a whole bunch of tears and heartache, I have had to say goodbye to my best friend of two separate occasions. Painful! To be fair, I have always owned my favorite breed of choice, the Afghan Hound, and am currently the happy owner of my third as I write this. In addition, though a marriage with my beautiful wife, I now have acquired another companion, a ten year old Corgi. My first two hounds expired at the ages of 9 and 10 respectively, two of the saddest days of my life. Could I have done something different that could have prolonged their lives? After a great deal of research, the answer to this question was an emphatic YES.
Why I Want To Help …
Like us, a dog’s diet plays a vital role in the overall health and happiness in each of them. Now don’t get me wrong, I made it a point to purchase dog food that I knew was reputable and came with a solid reputation. It wasn’t the cheapest bag on the shelf, nor the one on sale two shelves down. It was, as far as I knew, healthy and full of the ingredients that were essential. If this sounds like you, please be careful!
I have done quite a bit of extensive research on this topic, and I hope to share some of this invaluable information with you along the way. In a nutshell, I have done the work and research, so you won’t have too! Without question, my love for dogs is genuine and if I can assist you in keeping or getting your dog healthy is my quest. I will continually update you with information relating to your choice of dog food and what research says regarding this topic. Jump on board, and please check in often as I will be updating regularly with new information and insights. Talk soon.
By the way, that is me with my best friend in the picture above!
