Feeling Blessed: Dog Food and Schnauzer Parcel

We Got a Schnauzer Package!

We got a package from our dear friend, Magic. It was real sweet of Magic and her mom to include Asti in their letter. The squeaking duck is driving them crazy, by the way.

Thanks Magic and Mom L from Life in the Doghouse for the wonderful presents.
We got ourselves a nice schnauzer schnauzer pin and keychain. We even have a schnauzer pad to match the pretty pins. Now, I feel like a bonafide schnauzer fan! HAHAHA

Switching Shih Tzu Diets

I did mention about changing Buchi's diet. 
Two weeks ago, we started him on Eagle Pro. So far, he's responded positively to it. He's more active. As for the skin condition, it didn't seem to get worse--neither did it get better.

However, we also had him groomed, so it may be a major factor as to why he looks better these days.

After talking to Dr. MSB about Eagle Pro, she suggested we give Lamb and Rice a try because Eagle Pro's main ingredient is fish. It could worsen his skin condition.

Eagle Pro's Original Herring's ingredients include:
Herring, White Fish Meal, Pork Meal, Pure Pearled Barley, Brown Rice, Natural Fish Oil (Preserved with Natural Mixed Tocopherols), Flaxseed Oil, Sunflower Oil, Avocado Oil, Green Peas, Cranberries, Blueberries, Tomatoes, Carrots, Kelp, Alfalfa, Glucosamine, Parsley Leaf, Chondroitin, Rosemary Extract, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Lecithin, Choline Chloride
So, for the next two weeks, we will be trying Holistic Recipe, whose main ingredient include Lamb Meal, Brown Rice, Barley, and Ground Corn (shoot, I didn't notice the corn before!).
Here's an excerpt from a letter sent by the company that makes Holistic in response to the green tea in dog food concern.
Holistic Recipe is one of the best Lamb & Rice formulas for dogs. It contains lamb as the only animal protein source and excludes the possible allergens for dogs, such as beef, egg, fish, wheat, corn, etc. Besides, it's naturally preserved with vitamin E & C, not to mention the anit-free-radicals function from green tea. 
What do you think, guys? Which is better between the two?


  1. First of all receiving packages is so much fun. The duck 'sounds' like lots of fun. Dui loves a squeaker.

    We love fish. We've only had problems....well, Daisy only had problems with grain. Either sounds great to us!

  2. Corn or grains are usually the main culprits when it comes to skin allergies. Have you tried adding coconut oil to Buchi's diet?

  3. Pawsome package. We have to admit we love fish. Have a serene easy Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. That is an awesome package -- we laughed about the squeaking duck toy. :)

    We sure hope that new formula helps with Buchi's skin condition. Paws crossed!

  5. Great gifties. The WDA eats a whitefish based kibble and we cook brown rice, vegetables, blueberries, turmeric, kelp, and north Atlantic Mackerel for them (North Atlantic contains the fewest contaminants and mercury issues and is not GMO influenced).

  6. Aren't packages fun?! We think the Lamb & Rice is the way to go when allergies are a problem. Some ocean fishcan have heavy metals like mercury in them (salmon from the Atlantic come to mind as they are raised in farms where the water isn't as fresh). And, yes, that was The Girl!
