Howdy, how're you going?

Welcome to the Jimbo's July Newsletter. Here we are deep in the heart of winter, mud puddles everywhere and soon-to-be daffodils and ducklings gracing the landscape.
Given that it's winter and the chill is on, Poppy the dog is Pyjamafied every night before bed and it’s always a little of a battle. It kinda goes like this:

Dad: “Okay bud, time for bed, PJs on and piddle and poo.”
Poppy (mind bubble): “Oh but Dad it's cold out there and scary and wet and the fire's sooo warm and do I have to...!?”

This becomes the classic “Staffy Roll” upside down, feet-in-the-air gone floppy-dog.
Dave: “Pop; bunnies and possums."
Poppy (mind bubble): "Really, again, same as last night!? Woohoo, woohoo woohoo here I go!!” and suddenly it's action stations hooning out the door and looking for the bunnies.

On the return trip, PJ’s are applied and a Jimbo's Dog Treat at bed time.
From there until morning, Poppy is asleep shut away in her bed (in the kids' bathroom). Morning comes and as I am an early riser, Poppy is my first interaction of the day. A slow rise and stretch for Poppy as I make my way to the front door to let her out. As the door opens in a blur of unfathomable enthusiasm, Poppy the Rocket exits the door with a blur of fur and a growing growl which is demon-banisher on patrol. A quick circuit of the property, tail and hackles up in a bizarre canine manifestation of a hedgehog on steroids. Once all demons have been banished it's through the front door, check for misplaced cat food then off to the bed for a cuddle.
On the odd occasion when there is both peoples out of the bed early and no cuddles, the look of dismay and sheer indignation normally results in a quick comfort cuddle on the couch or chair just to settle her down. We are, after all, a 20kg lap dog.

The process seldom changes; the interactions are part of the fabric of our lives.
Little wonder that when I am away travelling Poppy sits at the front door waiting for Dad. She is a by-product of my influence; any behavioural issues are probably mine, good bad or indifferent. Dogs are a part of our lives; they give back what we put in; they show us loyalty, compassion and wag their tales - not their tongues. They have a place in society and thank goodness for that.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a question about our products, or want some feeding advice? Send us your questions for our Pet Advisor to answer.
"Do I need to cook Jimbo's before feeding it to my pets?"

Some pet owners think that because people can get sick easily from eating raw meat, their pets will too. Remember that cats and dogs in the wild thrive on fresh meat - it's the best thing for them, and they have all sorts of natural defences to combat potentially harmful bacteria in food. For example, cats and dogs have different bacteria in their stomachs (compared to humans) that help them digest raw meat.

If your pet has never had raw meat before, we would suggest feeding a small amount at first to get used to it (see last month's newsletter for more information). We don't recommend cooking it; cooking our products actually makes them less nutritious, and they can be harder to digest.
