The Honest Kitchen Journal - Entry One

This morning was Hudson & Murphy's first Honest Kitchen meal! I've listened to both schools of thought on 'transitioning' dogs to new foods. Some say it can cause bloat. Some say it won't. For me, why risk it? So I gave them each a cup of their old food with 3 Tbs of 'Verve'.

As soon as I opened the pouch my senses were aroused by the aroma of fresh herbs. For this batch, I used a 1 to 1 mixture and let it sit for about 10 minutes or so. The consistency was similar to porridge, perfect for my purposes.

To say they loved it would be an understatement. Poor Murphy, long after his meal was gone, he kept licking the bowl. And licking. And licking. For 42 seconds. I timed him. I'm going to chronicle this new experience over the next week or so.

So happy The Honest Kitchen is sponsoring your walk supplying Hudson and Murphy with food! I first learned of their products after the MENU pet food disaster last spring 2007. After researching pet food brands I chose THK for my dogs and cats. I think it's the best pet food available. My dog continues to lick the bowl just like Murphy! Even convinced my neighbor to try THK and her dog drools while she's preparing his meal. My cats eat PROWL by THK and within a month I could tell a difference in their health. The 16 yr old cat has gained weight and muscle tone...which has impressed my vet. Best of luck on your journey!
