Exactly how long does it take for The Thundering Herd to go through a ton of dog food (yes, that would be 2,000 pounds or 907 kg)?
A reader asked a great question yesterday, “How many bags of food does The Herd go through in a month?” Well, Nikki, we had to go do some calculating to answer that question and thought we would post it so everyone could see.
We have our food shipped to us, so we just had to look up the number of shipments. So, let’s see – 9 shipments this year. 4 bags in each shipment. 13 kg in each bag.
Wait – we need more toes on our paws to do this. Give us a second. Ah . . .
468 kilograms of dog food which is just over 1,000 pounds – or a half ton of dog food a year.
In case you are curious, we each get about 1 3/4 cups of Acana Regional Flavors every day (yes, as we mentioned yesterday, that is an affiliate link and we do receive a small payment if you buy from that link). We have tried a lot of foods over the years and highly recommend a high quality food. Though the food looks expensive at first glance, you can feed less of it because it is so packed full of calories and nutrients.
We want to wish all of you a very Happy and Safe New Year. In our usual tradition, we will be going to sleep around 9 or 10 o’clock rather than staying up til midnight. Shrug. It is the way we roll.
