Dr Patrick Mahaney and Cardiff Eat Dog Food for Nitro’s Law

April 1, 2011

Photo of Nitro Rottweiler With White Ring ToyWhile in New York for the 2011 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, I had the fortunate opportunity to meet dog trainer, Nikki Moustaki, through our mutual pal Martha Smith, general manager of i Love Dogs supplements (for which Cardiff is a canine ambassador).

Nikki introduced me to and involved me in her promotional campaign for Nitro’s Law. The Nitro Foundation created Nitro’s Law “as a felony provision and proactive legislative measure to increase the outdated misdemeanor-only provisions and penalties currently in place for animal crimes in the state of Ohio.”
I’ll do (nearly) anything to help animals in need, so Nikki had me eating Lucky Dog Cuisine right out of the bag. Our consumption of this human grade canine fare was filmed and posted on You Tube as part of Nikki’s ongoing series Girl Eats Dog Food for Nitro’s Law.

Well, I wanted to get further involved to help Nitro’s Law, so Cardiff and I created our own You Tube video to further the cause.

Nikki’s hard work is paying dividends, as Nitro’s Law (now called HB 108) is up for passage as a bill in Ohio.

Ohio residents, please do your part to fight animal cruelty by contacting your state representative and requesting support for HB 108. You can find your the name of your state representative by following this link and entering your zip code or district.

Non-Ohio residents can help by spreading the word of Nitro’s Law to family and friends, “Like” (-ing) Nitro Foundation on Facebook, and leaving your supportive comments on Patrick’s Blog posts.

We are all just following Patrick’s story, I can’t believe that anything calling itself a human being would do such thing.

As for eating dog food, I always tried out everything before giving it to Jasmine 🙂 That’s one of the reasons I am not a fan of commercial kibble. Mostly tastes like cardboard. No to batches taste the same (explain that to me??) and fish and potato formula often tastes like fish and chips – meaning you can mostly taste potatoes and fat.

I am very happy cooking for Jasmine myself, she eats better than we do 😉

Thank you Jana for your comments.
I am so glad to hear that Jasmine eats only what you would eat, as she deserves the best!
I was thinking of her when I first heard about Nitro and am so glad that she is such a good representative for the Rottweiler breed.
