“Oh! My dog loves his/her doggy food,” said NO pet owner ever.

God forbid if that pet of yours, catches the smell of your food that’s not supposed to do him any good; sure enough, drools and puppy faces will follow till you are made to feel like a heartless brute. With a heavy heart we either shoo them away or trick them with store bought treats which apart from having an offensive smell are also made of ingredients that are questionable.
