I enjoy meat shopping much more than my own shopping. In fact, I find my own shopping quite boring. >< Call me crazy, Call me insane. Yes, I love to meat-shop for my darling, especially when I know she enjoys her meats.
Meat shopping exhilarates me. I love to view the display of meats before me, taking in the different cuts, smell, texture & colour etc...while in my mind, imaging how Rossi gal would enjoy eating them. It has sort of become an 'obsession' for me.
My one constraint in getting meats would be freezer space. We share our freezer with Rossi gal. Her meats takes up around 3/4 of the freezer. Space for her food takes precedence over ours.
Besides, I wouldnt want to overload my freezer or store my meats for too long. Rossi gal wont be able to finish up all the meats that fast too. Daddy joked that our next fridge gota have a big enough freezer to accomodate my 'obsession'. @@
During the 2+ years of raw feeding, I have been to various butchers to get meats for her. There is one particular butcher, who has become my personal favorite, for their warm & friendly service, as well as another important reason, Rossi gal does very well on their meats.
*Among the different butchers I buy from, Rossi gal does best on the meats from this butcher. I witness positive results/improvements in her & I am happy with what I see. So, I like to get my meat supplies from them.
In fact, when I was still doing home-cook for Rossi gal, I have already been getting meats from this butcher and I continue doing so after I switch her to raw. Looking back, I have been buying meats from them for quite some time.
My darling is a sensitive gal, so I do take note of what I get for her. And what matters to me most is this: she must do well on the meats I get for her. This is of utmost importance to me.
If there is anything that she doesnt do well on, I will stop feeding it & not get it for her again. If she doesnt do well, there is no point in me getting it at all, waste of time & effort.
*Please note that this is with regards to my Rossi gal only, based on my observation & understanding of her. Every dog is different. One would have to observe what their own dog/s do well on.
Just wanna share my favorite butcher here:
Concluding my post with a pretty picture of my darling. ^^
