Time for a minor rant!
Lord knows I like Rachael Ray.. She's about as cute as a button, with a personality to match! One step further, she's a New Yawker, but, what in the world does she know about dog food?
Now, I might have been born at night, but it wasn't last night! I've been around the block a few times, and I know how the game is played.
A popular celebrity puts there name on a product, or endorses it to make it sell, and I suppose it works. Not on me, because a celebrity endorsement often means I think less of the product without even trying it, but I suppose to lot's of folks it makes a difference. But, we're not talking cosmetics or Oprah's book club here! We're discussing canine nutrition, and it's not a subject to be taking so lightly, or left in the hands of a Rachael Ray, or any corporate entity that thinks they can make money off her name and popularity by pulling the wool over the eyes of the pet owning masses!
To make matters worse, the product itself appears to be one touting the benefits of vegetables for dogs, as if they posessed human digestive tracts. Dogs are carnivores! They thrive on meat! Sure, a little roughage here and there is OK, but a dog's diet, left to it's own devices, would be a fresh, or even not so fresh animal kill. Enough of the Caesar salad pictures to promote doggie health already... I've had my fill of it!
But, I guess that idea doesn't play well with the current thinking from the foo-foo crowd, where a canine companion should be an eternal baby dressed in ridiculous outfits to peg our cuteness meter, and eat it's veggies to boot!
So, I still think Rachael Ray is a real cutie... but stay out of the dog food biz!
Have her people call my people!
