Man’s best friend is getting a crack at the good stuff now that their companions have shown an interest in all natural, no wheat dog food, and companies are more than happy to comply.
Good Food and Good Will
Online stores like The Dog Bakery are feeding canines the good stuff and are giving plenty of goodwill as a side dish. The Dog Bakery also donates a bag of dog food to a rescue organization for every bag of dog food purchased.
