Fact Number One
Although the mind and the outward appearance of our
modern dog has changed dramatically, the internal workings, including
the entire digestive system, and the way food is utilized for growth,

ASKING THE DOG ABOUT FEEDING
There are six words which may be used to describe

carnivore, hunter, scavenger, opportunist, vegetarian and omnivore.
Your Dog is a Carnivore
Dogs, like wolves love to eat other
animals. They will eat their internal organs, their meat, their bones,

cross - rottweiller. They all love to eat this way.
