Default Does anyone here feed Blue Buffalo?

I'm thinking about trying this. I want to get the best. Are the pieces small enough?

Maybe this, it's a new product and has no reviews though.

I tried Tango on Blue Buffalo. He was less than enthusiastic, and he wouldn't eat those little extra pieces (they have a name for 'em, I've forgotten it) at ALL. I will say though, that they were really good about honoring their guarantee and taking the bag back and giving me my money back when I gave up trying to make him like it.

When I switched from Blue Buffalo to Evo Innova, the difference in Tango's enthusiasm for food was remarkable. I'd never have guessed dogs could be that opinionated about kibble! But with the Blue Buffalo, it was obvious he was eating it just when he got too hungry, and he wasn't very interested even when he DID eat. Plus it looked like he was eating just enough to not be hungry any more, because there was always some left in the bowl.

A friend of mine had her chi on that food and he ate only when he had to and he WOULD NOT eat the extra little black pieces of food in there. She gave me some to see if Willy would eat them and NOPE, not even Willy would eat the pieces. Both dogs left them behind.
She spoke to the girl at pet smart who is a rep of the food and she said the black pieces were the vitamins and minerals, so they were separate pieces.
I think this is a bad idea as that means the vits are given out at random depending on how much comes out when your pour/scoop the food out of the bag, so one day they might get more and one day less. And in the case of her dog and Willy, they weren't even eatting those pieces

dexter is on blue buffalo as a precautionary food. as in when no one cooks his lunch he has that to eat when he gets hungry. he eats the kibble but not the black peices as well. i wonder what they are to not let any chi eat it! haha! blue wilderness. i dont think the ingredients are bad at all and its the only kibble he will come close to eating when left out. weve tried wellness, natural balance, totw and he didnt even touch those
