Dognomics: Substitution Effect

     The substitution effect talks about what you do when you don't do the "normal" thing.  ( I heard a report on it on Friday morning on NPR about the NHL and the substation effect there)  For Annie and Paul, it tends to take effect when we leave them alone during the day. Most times, it's Kongs stuffed with peanut butter, but about once a month, I discover we're out of peanut butter.  Out come the bully sticks for them to chew on.
     Annie and Paul are fed 2 meals a day.  At each meal, they get at least half a cup of dry kibble and then something else mixed in.  (Yogurt, canned pumpkin, pureed green beans, rice, and chicken broth have all found their way into their diet.)  And depending on what the budget is for the week also kind of helps to dictate what else they'll be eating beyond kibble.

Today's substation is Chicken Broth!

  1. I'm liking this Dogenmoics series. I think I may have caught the end of that story on NPR.
