I entered the giveaway for Canine Caviar sometime in July, and then mostly forgot about it. This blogging and social networking thing can be hard work! The Internet is so big, you get stretched out all over the place. Then, August 3, I received the email: we won! Elka was very excited.
Then I forgot again. And then, on Thursday, a package came in the mail, return address "Canine Caviar", and it was a pretty weighty box. Inside was a 3.3 pound bag of Canine Caviar "Venison and Split Pea" food, and a package of "Buffalo treats"; I'm unclear on what part of the Buffalo they are, exactly. I'm sure Elka will be happy to chow down, regardless.
On Dog Food Analysis, Canine Caviar's "Venison Split Pea" flavor is a 3 star food; so, not too bad, not quite the level of what Taste of the Wild is. Really, I'm not looking for a different food to switch to anyway, I just saw the giveaway and thought "Yeah, free stuff". Free stuff is hard to resist. An unexpected bonus is that the Canine Caviar individual kibbles are about pea-sized, and thus will make splendid training treats. They aren't individually oily or smelly, and don't gum up my hands in the process of handling the food to give to Elka. She seems to enjoy it, which is good. I'm not sure how long a 3.3 pound bag of tiny kibbles will last for treats, but at this rate, I'm thinking months.
So, thank you, Modern Dog, and thank you, Canine Caviar!
