    Clinton and MSNBC Anchor Comments

    What magazines do you read?

    I don 't subscribe to any, but we go to Barnes and Noble to read magazines all the time. I like Scientific American, Seed, Discover, Animal Wellness, Dog Fancy, Modern Dog, Dog Sports, and some various car mags.

    Pre-Packaged Raw Diet??

    You can pick up a cheap freezer on craigslist. I got one for $100. But, before that, I made do without and things worked out just fine. I personally keep it in there no more than 4-5 days. It's probably okay for a week though. Yeah, the fruit and veggie thing is called BARF (bones and...
