Feb 17th 2010 1:03PM Mary, please think for a moment: what do dogs (and others) eat in the wild? Raw meat and bones, of course! Raw bones are not dangerous for dogs--- it is COOKED bones (especially cooked bones of fowl, like chicken) that are brittle and splinter, causing all sorts of serious maladies for dogs.
I feed my dog a raw meat and bones diet (called "Bones And Raw Food" or "BARF" by many) advocated not only by Dr. Billinghurst and my dog's breeder but by the Service Dog program who donated him to me. In fact, I had to sign a contract to that effect before I could accept him. My Levi's teeth are gorgeous: clean, bright white, and strong. His eyes sparkle without any matter "gunking" them up, his stools are odor-free and well formed, he does NOT pass any gas. Also, as per our topic here, his breath is completely sweet smelling!!
Please look into this type of diet. I think you'll be surprised by its advantages.
Of course, what is most important is that we give our animals the best care, attention, time we are able to during the time we have to share together...
Oct 21st 2007 2:17AM Rich, please tell us WHERE in Home Depot or Lowe's you saw anything remotely resembling the Neutra numerals, in design, shape or technology! Give us specifics, guy! There is NOTHING available in the big box store systems that could compare to any aspect of the Neutra numerals. People who appreciate mid-century modern design are hard-pressed to find items that appeal to their esthetics at semi-moderate prices. It's a shame that fine design can only be afforded by the uber rich in our culture; its sadly ironic because that is the very concept the mid-century modern designers were trying to oppose by applying mass-production techniques to their designs!
