He is part dachshund, part collie, and part rat terrier. The vet thinks this is most of the ingredients in Pogo. I went to the pound to see if they had any small dogs or puppies available for my small apartment. Pogo was a short, hairy, spotted dog with a long nose. He was so funny looking that we figured no one would adopt him, so I did. I paid the fees for Pogo and we began our life together. The Vet says Pogo is probably eight years old. He thinks Pogo needs a more gentle food because of his age. Otherwise, he thinks Pogo is nice and healthy. I went to the store and of course, I took Pogo in with me. The pet store carries a variety of pet foods and they even have a tasting counter. The dry foods are in containers so you can let your pet taste before purchase. This was a smart idea because too many people buy foods their pets will not eat. After tasting a couple of the older dog formulas, we came across the Beneful by Purina. Pogo loved Beneful. Pogo began wagging his little tail and I knew this was the formula for him. Pogo and I have become best friends. He is happy to have a warm bed and Beneful dog food every day.
