All about kibbles

So my humans have been feeding me kibble for the past 1.5 months after they got tired of me swallowing my raw meals whole and sometimes choking myself in the process. What? I’m a beagle after all and which beagle doesn’t inhale good food?! 😀 So, they decided to put me on kibble because I can’t inhale my kibble and would need some time to chew my food. The result? Raw food takes me less than a minute to finish, vs kibble which takes me about 3-4 minutes to finish. My humans think that with kibble, I would have less risk of choking, but I don’t really care as long as it’s food and it tastes good!

Breakfast, please.

I am currently on Canine Caviar Special Needs Dinner which is supposed to be good for weight management, but unfortunately the vet had said I gained too much weight after switching to kibble! How could she….. I think I’ve been eating much less than when I was on raw! I get only 1 to 1.5 cups a day. My sister and I finished a 27lbs bag in a month.

Our 2 months supply!

So far our poops have been nice and firm, and apart from weight problems (according to some humans!) we did just fine on this brand.

But lately my humans found out from dogfoodadvisor that this kibble we’ve been eating is only rated 2 stars! And they’re not impressed that they’ve been buying crappy dog food and burning a large hole in their pockets! (Canine Caviar is quite an expensive brand here.)

Previously I’ve tried many expensive brands including Orijen, California Natural, Addiction, Nature’s Variety Instinct, Barking Heads….. and they all gave me smelly, runny poop! It’s much worse for my sister Spring, because she has such a sensitive stomach and most foods give her bad gas and explosive diarrhea….. the worst being Nature’s Variety Instinct! So far, Canine Caviar is the only brand that didn’t give us bad poops.

So my humans are contemplating whether or not to go through another round of looking for the best suitable dog food (which I’m very excited about because I get to eat all the different kinds of yummy food!). What do you think? Can dog food ratings be trusted?

As much as I love to stuff my face with as much food as I can, I hope I can lose a little bit of weight too. Just yesterday, a neighbour who was walking her golden retriever stopped at out gate to say hello to me, and when she saw me, she exclaimed loudly to my human, “Omg, she is so bigggg!” Ouchhhhh, that kinda hurt my feelings! She hasn’t seen me for just a couple of weeks and now she says I’m fat?! Ohhh I am so sad! 😦

Ohhhh it is such hard work being a fat beagle….. I think I need a treat to console myself……

Maybe a nap after all that exercise……being a dog is hard work!
