Finding pet people

Ever since I started to blog, I've been surprised by the types of people who are "insane pet people" like me. I added the blog link to my business web site and to my email signature a while ago, and am always pleasantly surprised at the response. I wasn't sure if that was the right move as I always try to be the consummate freelance professional, and you never know what people think about silly dog blogs.

After Watson passed, I seriously wondered if I was going to continue the blog anyway. He was gone, so what was there to write about. My interest in canine cancer continues, as will the blog. I even registered a URL that also points to this blog (www.cancerhound.com), so someday I will learn how to move the Blogger pages onto that domain. That will have to happen in my free time... whenever that will be.

As you know, I started feeding Waldo a raw diet in August, shortly after Watson passed. I was dismayed to hear about the recent Bravo raw food recall (http://www.bravorawdiet.com/recallinfo.html). I suppose considering that it is raw meat, there will be recalls like these. Dry kibble is so over-processed that even the germs are processed out along with the vitamins and nutrients. I am still feeding him Nature's Variety, but have switched
to the patty form factor rather than the medallions. The patties are a tad cheaper and they fit into my freezer a bit easier. I can fit 36 days of patties (3 rolls) into the same footprint as 2 bags of medallions (96 medallions, or 11 days of food).

I'm glad you're going to continue blogging - I always find your posts interesting and just like mine - sometimes sad, sometimes happy.

I've also been pleasantly surprised by the reaction and compassion I've had from people who I wouldn't necessarily have expected to be sympathetic to recent events. It renews your faith in human nature.

Ed Noon from BARF World (www.barfworld.com) it is exciting to hear that you made the switch to raw for Waldo. I am sure you will find it superior to dry kibble. Yes, recalls are a fact of life and we were sorry to hear of the Bravo recall as well. The salmonella is one thing, and very common in chicken/turkey, but it is the listeria that is frightening.
Keep up the good work.
