  1. I appreciate Whole Dog’s information about dry and wet dog foods. However, I was so disappointed to see that HALF of the February issue -12 pages of 24- is an in-depth evaluation of dog foods, including an extensive list. Yes, it’s an important consideration but in my opinion (and this may sound harsh) it has become an obsession with so many dog owners. I would have enjoyed reading more articles about dogs and our relationships with them.
