Here Comes the Chuckwagon
Is it my imagination or did there used to be a lot more dog food commercials? That Chuckwagon rolling through the kitchen, the happy and natural Purina dogs -- I don’t see them on TV anymore. The marketing for dog food is so on point that sometimes I want to eat it. And that makes sense. I mean, dogs eat dog food, but they don’t buy it. My friend told me that when he was a kid they convinced their mother to spend a bit more and buy a huge bag of that dog food that you’d add water to and it would turn into gravy. The beagle in the commercial loved it, but they didn’t show that beagle get explosive diarrhea like my friend’s dog.
