The Country that just keeps on giving

If you have read my blog over the past two years, you know that I am not the greatest fan of China.  And given the amazingly shoddy quality control in the Middle Kingdom, I would sooner jump off the Empire State Building than eat any food made in China.  Well, it seems that I should also attempt to make sure that my dogs Buddy and Bo Bo also give Chinese food products a wide berth.  There have been multiple stories in the news recently about dogs dying or getting horribly sick after ingesting dog treats made in China.

So why not buy your pup treats made here in the USA?  Truechews might be a good place to start.  American dogs are happier with American treats.

  1. I wouldn’t feed a dog food from China either! There are days I feel bad for the Chinese. They can’t trust their gov’t, the air they breathe or the food they eat. Atleast in The West we have some transparency and some type of a democracy.
    When our ancestors were polutting the water and cutting down all the trees, no one knew any better. Now the whole world knows how short sighted this type of development is, and yet many countries are all in.
    Glad to be an American.
