I imagine Christmas is a funny old time to be a dog; everyone’s more jolly and drunker than usual, so the petting is generally a bit more hands on. Oh, and everyone’s wearing a jumper. Can’t forget that.
But the thing is, when everyone sits down for arguably the best part of the day – the dinner – the dog never gets to enjoy the festivities. Maybe they’ll have a few scraps once everyone’s eaten the good bits, but it’s usually the same old tin of chum.
Not acceptable. It’s Christmas for everyone and as we all know, dogs are people and deserve equal treatment. If I had a dog, I’d have him sit at the table with a knife and fork, but I don’t have a dog and I doubt I can convince people with dogs to do that.
There’s another way to get them in on the Christmas joy however – a middle ground, if you will – as Pooch and Mutt have a wonderful alternative to shoving some generic meat-flavoured, grain-filled slop in your dog’s bowl.
The British company have concocted a wonderful, grain-free, healthy and delicious Christmas dinner for dogs, consisting of turkey, duck and health, tasty vegetables.
What’s more, all of this is packaged in 100% recyclable cartons, rather than the can which, though it is recyclable, carries a far larger carbon footprint.
The reviews are pretty good too, with customers saying that their dog won’t eat anything else after trying out Pooch and Mutt…
One customer said:
“Good high quality food with nothing nasty lurking in the small print.
“My girls love having different varieties every day , and I’m happy they have no tummy troubles as they had with other names of food.”
With another adding:
“The dog rates it 5 stars. Will not go back to any other food“
And another echoing that sentiment with:
“My dog loves this food. He won’t eat anything else“
At the moment you can get a free duck chew with any order – also for Black Friday – so you’re going to want to work fast.
It’s Christmas for goodness’ sake.
They deserve a festive treat.
