In Search of Cheap Dogfood

Drove a girl home from the office as a favor and that was an eye opener. I know the girl has a borderline poverty situation going on, but she is working every day and a smart person. I think the lack of money is just temporary and she will climb out of this hole soon.

She lives way out in the country – her rent depends on her income, like most people. But a single mom cannot find cheap rent in the city. She has a little old farmhouse that she is renting and it took us about 40 minutes to drive there from the office. I can imagine she has to allow an hour to drive in every morning with the rush hour traffic coming into town.

She has one dog of her own, but evidently two stray have adopted her. She didn’t have the heart to call the pound, as the dog pound around here is a kill shelter – about 80% of the shelter dogs are killed within two weeks of being picked up or surrendered. So she is trying to feed three big dogs on an already skimpy paycheck. When I saw how thin the dogs are, I made up my mind to help them out. I want to find a source for cheap dog food and buy her a 50 pound bag for each dog. That should get them through Christmas at least and take some of the pressure off of her.

Any suggestions on where to find dog food at the best prices?

What’s the Deal with Duck Dynasty?

There is Duck Dynasty crap all over the stores based on the cable TV “reality show.” Tee shirts, baseball caps, pajamas and now Christmas toys of metal trucks and little bearded figures. It’s the new pop icon or something!

I personally do not see the attraction of a bunch of hairy rednecks hanging around for a reality show. Surely people realize by now that there is very little actual reality in these shows! They are scripted and edited by the show producers. – these guys are just actors at this point. I’m not a fan – I have zero interest in watching that show and I’m sure not buying any of the logo’d crap for some corporate suit to make a profit off these guys.
