My apologies for posting so late today. Christie, at Life With Beagle, posted a link to a New Yorker article on the FaceCrack this morning and I started reading. It’s long. But y’all will want to read it, too. The author details her adventures with five so-called Emotional Support Animals, highlighting how easy it is to get animals into places they shouldn’t be, and reinforcing the lament of my friends with legitimate service animals (Bunny, I’m thinking of your sweet Carma) – that the ESAs are ruining things for people who have disabilities and dogs to match them. Y’all go read it. It’s long. But worth getting to the end. The pig. OMD.
Today will be a generic treat day. How on earth does one follow up an emotional support pig?! Given that, I’d like to point y’all toward Kimberly’s post about treats for her own dogs. Do any of y’all feed raw? We do not, but Kimberly does. She also gives her dogs (all four of them) Jones Natural Chews. I love Keep The Tail Wagging and need to get over there to read more often. This particular post highlights the dangers of giving your dog rawhide. What? You didn’t know that rawhide is bad?
When I first started at Jones, took the tour of the facilities, I asked my boss what kind of rawhide treats they made. Y’all, I didn’t know. I swear. She said that they don’t make ANY rawhide treats, since the hide doesn’t digest, and it often blocks the system of dogs, killing them, or sending them to the vet for pricey surgery. I’ve since heard stories. And it’s not like Jones couldn’t make rawhide treats if they wanted to. They use nearly every part of the cow, for Pete’s sake. They just know that the rawhide is harmful, so they refuse to make them, regardless of their popularity. I like that about Jones.
I also like that Jones is an all-natural product. All the time. There are NEVER any artificial ingredients in a Jones chew. In fact, most treats have less than eight ingredients. Can’t say that about a MilkBone. And all Jones chews are made from American grown animals and plants, processed in the good ol’ USofA. Here’s their secret:
The Jones family have worked in the meat industry for more than 150 years. The owners were all butchers before becoming dog treat creators. They know meat. And they know dogs.
So what’s my point? Here it is. Buy more Ovaltine. Wait. No. Buy Jones Natural Chews. Seriously. You want to see your dog smile, right? You want to give your dog treats that aren’t made in China? You want to give your dog healthy treats that encourage obedience and happiness? You want to buy treats that don’t cost an arm and a leg? You want treats that you can trust? Jones Natural Chews. I don’t know why everyone doesn’t give them to their dogs. But you can! And you will, right? Geex. listen to me sounding like an infomercial. I just honestly love Jones THAT MUCH. And so do my dogs.
Until I write again …
