Default KibbleWizard - NEED HELP!

Okay, this may be crazy and nerdy and ridiculous... but I have made it my new project to make an online database of kibble photos. I'll have photos of each brand and variety of kibble to show size, shape and color.

http://kibblewizard.blogspot.com/

Yeah, I'm a nerd. But hey, I love the different ways kibble looks. I almost wanted to be a pharmacist because I thought all the different medications were pretty.

Anyway, here's my thought - I need a tiny amount of kibble, of each brand/variety, as many different kinds that I can get my hands on. I want to standardize the photography so there's no question of relative size or color. If you have SAMPLES, or can even throw a handful of kibble in a padded envelope and send it to me, please PM me and I'll send you my address.

Okay, you may now all tell me I'm a colossal nerd.

I have TOTW wetlands I can send, sample packs of Victor Grain-Free Joint Formula, and then whatever I end up ordering for Gavroche. Let me know if you need either/both. I can also go to the feed store and get some sample packs if you need some of the less common foods. They have samples of pretty much everything. Actually I could email them and ask if they're willing to contribute a sample bag of each one they carry samples of...

I can also get samples of Purina EN and DH and Hills I/D, T/D and probably W/D for dogs, and C/D, W/D, and T/D for cats (and possibly Purina DH), if you want them.

A family friend was very nice, and she got a toy and a bag of of *gag* Beneful for Fable, so if you're interested in crap foods (Why not? It's kibble, lol), I'm getting a camera in a few days, so I can take a picture of that.

I don't think you're a nerd, though once I took a picture of me abusing Millie with kibble on her nose, and you picked out one kernel of it and said, "Is that Innova?"

ETA: Though most of you will shame me for it, my transportation is VERY unreliable, so I am going to keep most of the Beneful as back-up just in case my planning is off and I run out of food before I can get to the store, but I'm MORE than happy to send you a sample. It's not a food I care about except for "I'm stranded" emergencies.

I can do some Fromm and TOTW, not sure what brands but I can let you know. Ummm can do Diamond Naturals Lambs and Rice. Oh, and Horizon Legacy.

I'm super glad you're doing this. My coworkers think I'm a FREAK because I usually ID kibble on sight without a label.

I have several bags of mystery kibble at my work.... lmao I'll send you some so you can tell ME what it is.

Seriously though if I can get to the post office I'll send you a handful of Solid Gold Sun Dancer. (I tend to suck at mailing things quickly)
