A ton o' food!

Ever wonder what it takes to feed 24 dogs?

Dog food by the ton....literally. This is just over 2000 pounds of dog food!

Some helpers with opposable thumbs would have been nice for the unloading, but I had plenty of supervisors!

Good Golly!

Did the Mutts countersign on the loan for all that?

And people think I'm strange with a 35 gallon galvanized Trash Can in the front closet!
"What's THAT doing in your CLOSET!??"

Dawg Food ... 35 + pounds.

Ours is sorta a drop in your bucket!

Holy Cowpup! How long does that last? And what on earth (if I may ask) does that cost you?

We have 3 different kinds of foods becuse of allergies and health problems. Monty's Science Diet u/d is $55 (U.S. dollars), Samuel's is $45, and Kona, Abby and Mine is $59 for 30 pound bags.

Holly, once GST and freight is added in, it costs just over 2000 dollars for the ton of food. Depending on how much meat I can get, it could last six months or so. We have a butcher friend who gives us scraps and bones! The food bill would double without his help!

I buy a senior/lite formula for three of the dogs, but only a bag or two at a time for them!

I think we should get that much food!
