The Cookie Game

Like a case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the leash-aggressive dog is calm, cool, and downright polite when walking among people or around dogs off-leash. But hook on a leash, and he lunges, barks, and snaps at the sight of another dog. Sound like your dog?

Try a training game called ‘Cookie Dog.’

A Turkey Day Joke!


BAD Parrot

A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird’s mouth was rude, obnoxious, and laced with profanity.

John tried and tried to change the bird’s attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music, and anything else he could think of to ‘clean up’ the bird’s vocabulary.

Finally, John was fed up, and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot, and the parrot got angrier and even more rude. John, in desperation, threw up his hands, grabbed the bird, and put him in the freezer.

For a few minutes, the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed. Then suddenly, there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute.

Fearing that he’d hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto John’s outstretched arm and said, ‘I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I’m sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions, and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior.’

John was stunned at the change in the bird’s attitude.

As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird spoke-up very softly, ‘May I ask what the turkey did?’

And you thought there were no clean jokes left!

But, now for the bottom line. What is the price comparison between Fromm, Victor, & Nature’s Logic? And, do Victor & Nature’s Logic offer a Frequent Purchase Plan like Fromm?

I have not checked prices at the feed store yet as both Fromm & Victor are a little harder to find up here in Washington State. When I compared prices online though, I found Nature’s Logic is packaged as the same weight as Fromm and was more expensive than Fromm. Victor is packaged as a larger weight for less money than Fromm. Victor’s large size bag is 30 pounds vs. Fromm’s 26 pounds.

Here are some online places to shop for pet food & more:

I found the best deals on these sites: – Shipping is reasonable – Free local delivery to select zip codes – Only sells Dr Tim’s, Farmina, Redpaw, & Victor)

Nature’s Logic offers a Buy 12, Get 1 Free; but unlike Fromm, you have to buy the same kind & same weight. Victor is a small company and does not offer a Frequent Purchase Plan at this time.
