GSD puppy – New family member.

A new family member in my life, say hello to Dante.
At 16 weeks he’s a handful and I love him.  For those that want a little more detail, I feed him Solid Gold Wolf cub dog food and he loves it. It rates as a 4 star premium dog food, and after reading about the horrendous crap dog food they sell in most supermarkets (this and this), I decided to feed him based on quality and not price.

Anyhow, Dante already knows sit, lay down, paw, come, stay, walks on a leash and a bunch of other tricks I’ve taught him so far.  He’s smart and is really eager to learn each time I bring out the clicker.  Looking forward to getting out of the “Landshark” phase!

Below we have 15 weeks, 12  weeks, and 8 weeks.

I think this will make anyone who currently treats these dangerous beasts think twice before sticking thier arm anywhere.

From the pics shown, it looked like the croc got the better half below his elbow. Pretty gruesome, you are warned!

McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets contain butane?

Much to my surprise, after reading about the 38 ingredients in a single Chicken McNugget, I’m not that shocked that something like TBHQ is found in it. I mean, come on!

Have you ever looked at a Chicken McNugget before? It’s not exactly screaming out, “Hey look at me, I’m made of Chicken!” 😆

But perhaps the most alarming ingredient in a Chicken McNugget is tertiary butylhydroquinone, or TBHQ, an antioxidant derived from petroleum that is either sprayed directly on the nugget or the inside of the box it comes in to “help preserve freshness.” According to A Consumer’s Dictionary of Food Additives, TBHQ is a form of butane (i.e. lighter fluid)…
