Thank you so so much - this is so helpful!There are a lot of things that go into a good kibble--I'm still learning more and more about this myself, but generally a good indicator is high levels of animal-based proteins and fats. By those standards, Royal Canin is kind of meh, I wouldn't recommend it, but there are a lot of dogs that have tummy issues that do well on it, likely because it actually contains very little amounts of animal sources in it (which as a group are a common allergy). You're basically paying 33 bucks for 6 pounds of brewer's rice, so your instincts are quite right. Here's the dog food advisor page for the brand in general Royal Canin Dog Food Review | Recalls | Dog Food Advisor. For the price Royal Canin is, you could buy Farmina, which is animal-based--Farmina N&D Ancestral Grain Chicken & Pomegranate Medium & Maxi Puppy Dry Dog Food, 26.5-lb bag - Chewy.com or something similar. If you've got any questions on a particular food, I'd be happy to walk you through it!
Omg she was gorgeous! Thanks for sharingFunnily, i just shared one (photographed an old photo, faded from the sun). She was darker than this, the photo is faded. No puppy pictures unless i move furniture and dig through old albums, but she was apricot coloured with brown ears, similar shade to yours.
