Pasta for puppies
June 24, 2007
Q: I’ve heard that there is pasta sold as dog food here in Italy. Really? What’s up with that?
A: Well, it is Italy after all. How else would you know whether you’ve got a truly Italian dog?
We spotted a generic brand of pasta dog food at the GS supermarket chain. The multi-vegetable and grain concoction in the pet supply aisle boasts a delicious and nutritious meal for dogs that is melded in a purportedly savory pasta mix.
Like the dry pasta sold for human consumption, the dog pasta too is dry and hard, and is sold in a multi-kilo, clear plastic bag. Following instructions, the pasta should be placed in hot — but not boiling — water for several minutes to “cook” it.
Then, when al dente, serve up.
Buon appetito puppy.
