    Not quilting but dog food info

    I know I have a really difficult time hauling 30#bags of dog food up the 14 steps to my front door. I found this company that has many kinds of pet foods, and the one I feed, and if your order is over $49 they ship it right to your door for free.

    I ordered food on Monday and, believe it or not, it arrived via UPS on Tuesday and did I mention the shipping is FREE. Because I was a first time customer and they had a 10% off coupon to boot, I saved $30 on the order, almost the cost of one of the bags of dog food.

    Life is good and so is my back from now on. The UPS man carried it right to my front door.

    WoW!! At that Price I could feed my Lily for life and maybe even the next dog too!LOL
    Truth is I was at a local pet store and they gave me so many samples it filled up 1/2 her feeder dish! no kidding! and when we buy a 4lb bag it lasts 6months or more! She eats soft am/pm dry as she wants. Shes only 5lbs. very low cost.
    May Your Life Be Full of Charity and Love.

    Must be nice! Leo weighs 60+ pounds & eats like a horse! But I wouldn't trade him for all the money or dog food in the world!

    LOL...Tink is on a prescription dog food, so no more going just to a store to get her food. I have to order it from vet.
    They ordered the wrong size for me this last time. I only took it because I really needed it and couldn't wait another week till the next order came. Vet did cut me a deal on the price, but Tink has enough food to last 6 months. I had to use every one of my large plastic containers to hold the food. Have to keep it fresh for her majesty...and have to make sure we don't have any reason to get some of those nasty little grain bugs.
    I sure wish I had the vet deliver the food...it was heavy to drag in...

    Im 72 yrs old and struggle to load and unload liter from the grocery cart.
    Nobody has ever offered to help me load or unload. Manners do not exist anymore.
    Even walking down the sidewalk I have to get out of younger peoples way as they do not give an inch.

    Hey, that's good to know. I hate having to lift bags of dog food, and not just because they're heavy. I had the bottom fall out of a bag of dog food as I was lifting it from my cart at the checkout one time. Round pieces of kibble roll a long way when they're dropped from about three feet off the ground.

    And there I thought it was just me! I have a wonky knee & use the powered carts when I'm in the store. If I had a dime for everytime somebody glared at me or said something hateful about me being in the way, I'd be a millionaire. Never mind if I actually need somebody to reach something for me. Kids these days!

    I lucked out. I have two teenagers that live next door.. I made them quilts, but they would've done it for me anyway. We swap dogs.. They have a prissy girl, and I have a tough little boy who loves to play.. (except in the mornings.. he doesn't do mornings).

    Don't get me started on manners in some young people. Our local news yesterday showed an elderly lady in the Wal-Mart. She passed out in her wheel chair. Some young man came by and did not even offer to check her condition, just stole her purse with $300 inside. He then proceeded to check out and made a purchase. They caught this on the security camera. I hope they catch him, lock him up and throw away the key. Saying all that, there are still some wonderful mannerly young people out there. Just wish there were more.

    I buy dog food at a ranch and pet store and the people always carry the 30 lb bags to the car without asking if I need help. Of course that doesn't help when I get home and have to unload them and bring them into the house. LOL Even the grocery stores always ask if you need help.

    Love this link! Icon17, your yorkie is gorgeous. We just lost one of ours (one of 2 litter mates) a few months ago, and her sister is slowly recovering from grief.

    When I notice someone doing something kind for someone else (getting something from a top shelf, lifting a heavy bag, etc), I make a big deal about how wonderful they are for helping and how sad that others don't do it more, and people around hear and notice it. You'd be surprised at how that makes others THINK about their own behavior then. Also, its ok to ASK someone else to help you and then thank profusely the same way. Many of the young ones (and many of the older ones, too) need reminders about manners....

    When I was leaving Walmart with a grocery cart full of groceries, a bottle of ketchup fell out and broke on the floor. A young lady pulled some paper towels off the table and immediately wiped it up. She was not a worker but was just standing there talking with a friend.

    When I got out of Walmart with my bags of dog food, for some reason, just could not lift to put in back of truck. I saw a couple of young men and I asked if they could put the bags in the truck for me. They both said sure and hurried over and 'did the deed.' I thanked them for helping and they said 'no problem.' They said 'You have a nice day, Mam' and went on into the store. Something you just have to ask. LOL

    I feed my dogs Natures Select. The guy delivers it to my house every other Wednesday. If I were home he would bring it into the house and put it where I wanted it. 50 lbs. at a time. Four dogs, 1 German Rott, 2 Rott mixes and a Shepard/Keishound mix. None are small, but they eat less of the Natures Select than other crap I used to feed them so money-wise it evens out. They have cat food too. No minimum order for home delivery, no extra charge.

    You spend almost as much on the cheap food as the good. I think it's helpful/necessary to read the ingredients on the bag plus the amount of protein. Most dog foods and cat foods are mostly grains and let's say left over animal parts.

    I'd be interested to find out more about the company you deal with. I feed Taste of the Wild myself. A 30# bag doesn't last long when your dog weighs 105 lbs.

    Im feed Taste of the Wild to both dogs and cats and the store always carries it out for me. I don't have to ask but sometimes I do have to say that I don't need the help. Get it at a local business in town which is run by truly wonderful people. Dogs seem to eat less of it than they did the other food and definitely the cats eat les than the Purina food.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options
