I don't see what the big deal is, if you don't want to feed the food don't feed it. I'm sure your local shelter won't be so picky if you decided to donate. Having too much dog food seems like a hell of a first world problem, to me.
Did you read what I said
I never said a thing
about too much food, nor did I intend to show ingratitude. Any food is welcome, of course, but here's what I received (and let me underline that I was grateful
, and because I was grateful
I still intend to use the food - even if it isn't what I would give a doberman):
Little Ceasar's Softies (treats that I mentioned that I'm having to break up, otherwise she tries to inhale them)
Pedigree Little Champions (soft dog food that I mentioned that's designed for meals, but has about half the protein I would typically give Jaina - that's why this became designated for treats)
Rawhide bones (which are MUCH too small - she'd probably choke on them - so I'm giving these to the MIL's Shih Tzus)
Greenies chews (these will probably also go to the MIL's shih tzus - I'm not familiar with Greenies, so I have to make sure they're the crunchy treat variety vs. a hard treat J is supposed to chew)
Nowhere is the food being wasted, or otherwise "too much" food.
Edit: I think the point, too, that I probably didn't realize is that I feel a small sense of victory of finding yet another thing I can stuff in Jaina's Kong. She goes through peanut butter (even frozen!) in under five minutes, but the Little Champions (half a bag) managed to last her almost two to three hours
Frozen, of course.
