Are we feeding dogs the ( all natural , soft and chewy ) brains of other dogs?

Don’t! That’s how they get scrapie, which is almost indistinguishable from zombie disease!

Well I was gonna say that’s how mad cow disease (and vCJD) started and soon we’d have “mad dog disease” (even though we already have one of those - rabies) but I was ninja’d by @Boundegar

I’ll take a half portion…

I’d like Christmas dog treats just so as to be able to say ‘Christmas is going to the dogs.’ [I am doing my part to keep the War on Christmas ™ alive and well]

What’s in normal everyday dog food?


#7

Finally, dog food with honest labelling.

Well you could just say “Halloween is going to the dogs”, but then it always has. As a UKer brought up in the sixties, Halloween was something I barely heard of, and if I did it was just a religious date (the evening before All Hallows’ or All Saints’ Day). I don’t recall when the whole US ‘trick or treat’ thing became a thing, but that’s when it started going to the dogs. I will, of course, imperiously and with great and pompus superiority blame the US for the advent (see what i did there?) of yet another “consumer trash sales” opportunity. :wink:

And Christmas is one of the few abstract nouns which I approve of war being waged on, too.
