Default I was browsing at the pet store today...

...and I realized there are a TON of kibbles I can add into the rotation. I never realized how cheap some of them are. TOTW is around $50 a bag at TSC now, but I get it at a pretty good discount from my brother - I can also get Nutrisource and PureVita at a discount.

Anyway, I think when I decided to feed TOTW it was the only affordable, grain-free food at the pet store I went to. That store is pretty small...they have TOTW, Diamond Naturals, Chicken Soup, Nutrisource, PureVita and EaglePak and that's about it. Today I went to the other local pet shop (which has 3 locations now, woot!) and was browsing while I bought Tango's food. I know there are a few types of Nutrisource grain free, PureVita grain free, a couple types of Pinnacle grain free, at least one type of Acana, and at least one type of Nature's Variety Instinct that are all in the $40-$50 per bag price range (bag size ranges from 23# to 35#). Some are actually even cheaper than TOTW. And I think there are a couple varieties of Fromm grain-free and possibly Evanger's grain-free that might fit too.

Sooooo...now I'm ridiculously excited about setting up a new rotation. I'm going to email companies and see abotu samples, and set up a list of foods I want in the rotation. And then set up a set rotation, and I plan to have at least 1-2 extra bags at any one time in case I don't realize I'm running low in time to get the right food (has happened more than once...). And as pathetic as it is, it sounds like fun At least I have something to have fun with until I can switch to raw

When I feed kibble, I love love love Nature's Variety INSTINCT, especially the duck, rabbit, and beef formulas. Haven't tried the fish and Sawyer has decided he doesn't do so hot on chicken-based kibbles anymore (though raw is still fine).

Chicken is the only one that is in my price range, and just barely - 23ish pounds for $50. But mine do just fine on any protein source, so we'll use it Can't say chicken's my favorite, but it works lol.

The grain free trend seems to be catching on. It's a good thing. ^.^ I hope with a little more time and competition more affordable varieties will emerge like the Costco Nature's Domain stuff.

True story bro. Frodo is on Nature's Variety Instinct right now (first time in years) and he looks better now than I have ever seen him. Even though it is one of the only bags that I can't get for free, I am thinking that as long as I can afford to I will just buy them on my own dime to keep him looking/feeling this good.
