I have just taken part in a product test for a Joint care for my dog. On finishing I had a questionare to fill in. Amongst the questions was 'Was the taste acceptable?' 'Was the size of each piece acceptable'
My answer to the first was' absolutely no idea as I was under the impression that the dog was supposed to eat it not me.'
Answer to the second was ' Acceptable to or for what'
I get the impression that these manufacturers are producing things for dogs but they don't get a chance to give their opinions. How in hell does the owner know if a thing tastes of sh.. or sugar? As most dogs I know will eat both with equal relish.
I await with interest to see if I get any 'feedback' from my answers.

Too funny!

Gosh, you mean your dog didn't say to you "Oh yes, this is just the perfect size to fit nicely into my mouth! And oh, how it tastes just like that meadow muffin I ate this morning!" ROFL

I would say .....

If your Dog liked it, it would come over and lick your hand. If it didn't, it would probably pee on your leg..

You mean none of you guys never tried a Dog Biscuit?

I can honestly say I have never tried a dog biscuit. Or dog food. It probably won't hurt you , I just don't think I want to know what it tates like. Considering what my dogs try to eat while on a walk I don't want to try anything they think is edible.

Lucky old Bill Z.

I take it Bill you have never been hungry and I mean really starving. I can tell you that if you get dog bisciuts, smash them into as small bits as you can, mix them with water into a thick paste and drop into embers of a fire for a few minutes they are better ( just) than nothing.When folk are hard up the man is kept fed to work and the kids get what is left, in my house that wasn't much. So we learned a lot about eating things that today would give health departments heart attacks but we survived. Mashed dog biscuits, mashed sheep feed mixed with water and wild garlic as a damper.(Maybe that's why I've still got a good head of hair)There's a wild rush that the seeds if ground give a passible flour.The list is endless.I says starvation is the mother and father of invention and inginuity. Any of you folks eaten things that modern folk would give a 'pass' to?

My son has a friend whose dad

My son has a friend whose dad eats squirrel brains. Don't think I would unless I facing starvation or such. I mean I would have to be really hard up to eat brains of any sort...now that I think about it.
