One thing Grand Junction pet owners have in common is that we love to spoil our pets.

Pet Foods Are Boring (apparently)

The grocery store shelves are lined with all kinds of food for dogs and cats. If you go to a pet store, you'll see aisle after aisle of dog and cat food in cans and bags. In fact, it's almost mind-boggling to see so many varieties of pet food. Yet, we just can't help ourselves when it comes to giving our pets special human food treats.

Once your pet discovers human food, you are doomed to a lifetime of spoiling your beloved pet. How can you possibly resist that sweet face, that longing look, and those adorable begging eyes? And when you see the joy and pleasure your pet gets from each special treat, you only want to do it more and more.
