After seeing an earlier post on walking dogs...and feeling a bit guilty for my lazy nature...I decided to put on the coveralls, the heavy boots, glove and hat to take the dogs out for a romp in the recently harvested corn field. I love to walk in the harvested field since it is easier to walk six dogs off leash, no concerns for traffic and lots of room to run.My little blind Corgi is just esthatic to be off leash and I know she will stay close and go right down the rows with me. The pack uses a tremendous amount of energy bouncing over the cornstalks left in the field. Good thing I feed them good quality food with no fillers...especially corn...I think to my self. Lots of energy, beautiful shiney costs...But what our walk really turns into is a scavengerhunt for corn cobs that still have kernals on them. What a wonderful treat. Leftover waste corn. I read labels and reports on dog nutrition, spend way more than is reasonable for a bag of kibble, and they delight in the reminents of harvest, grazing on grass and the left over poo from whatever was there before them...Once one found an old black bannana peel. It was as though they found the manna of life. Sometimes I wonder, why do I bother to be so picky and spend what I do on dog food... this pack will eat anything and never seems the worse for the wear... Then I realize, they have boundless energy, shiney coats, eyes that sparkle... the results of good nutrition. I'll keep reading the labels and reports and let them have their fun.
