All loving puppy owners have their pup’s health and well-being in mind when feeding their puppy. Some owners are not as discerning when it comes puppy food. For as long as the label indicates that it is food meant for puppies, they are good to go.

Dogs are members of our families and their unconditional love is a true gift to us. They add so much to our lives! Celebrate your dogs however you wish. Cheer yourself up with an Elmo doll for your little one, or a designer dog collar for Smoochy. But definitely be aware of the dogs in the hood that may need to be routed to the rescue groups.
