My parents call my dogs their "grand kids" and once my dad had a whole conversation on a plane about coming to visit us- he started by saying he was visiting his daughter, son in law and grandkids- then when he realized the woman thought he was talking about human kids he just went with it! Even talked about the puppy like she was a newborn- my mom was so embarrassed!A lady at work, who I have not seen for a bit, walked into an elevator in which I was already in with colleagues and asked, "How are the babies". I seriously had to ask if she meant the dogs or my grandbabies.
She meant the dogs...haha!
Back to the topic at hand- I keep ZP around for traveling and emergencies when I might run out of raw food and to use as treats. I love the stuff. If something horrible happened and I could not feed raw (cause I really think that's best for us) I would feed ZP. One of my dogs always coughs some pieces up if I don't wet it though, I think cause he eats it so fast.
