My Labrador Retriever, Midnight, is my first dog. In a way I kind of grew up around dogs because my grandmother always had dogs up at the cottage/ farm, and my sister had two dogs when I lived with her but as for a dog of my own? Midnight is my first.
So … when it came to getting ready for our first dog I did a lot of research before we even got her. I mean it took a little while to figure out just what breed of dog would suit our lifestyle and then once we’d decided that Labrador Retrievers would probably be our best choice I went to work and started figuring out what kind of foods would be best to feed her.
I did all this before we even went and picked her out from a breeder. I’d wanted a dog all my life and I was finally getting one and I wanted to make sure that once she was finally here we’d know what we were doing. Well .. as things stood – food wise we did know what we were doing, we did well on that front, she’s very healthy and she has an exceptionally shiny black coat. However on the puppy front – lets just say our house was a bit of a circus for a couple of months. It was crazy, but I’m sure any first time puppy owners know what I’m talking about, especially if their puppies were a little bit hyper.
Midnight is my constant companion so it’s very important to me that I keep my silly little ham of a dog happy and healthy. Her diet, just like the Iams Naturals, contains chicken, antioxidants, no artificial preservatives or nasty chemicals and quality ingredients.
Have you always had pet cats and dogs around you or did you do some research before you finally got your first dog too? Do you try to feed your dog a very healthy diet?
