Snowblind

17Dec09

Did you know, in Norway, so I’ve heard, some people keep a tin of dog food in the car in case they get stranded in the snow and need something to eat?

They know that it will always be there in an emergency because you will never eat dog food when you are just feeling a bit peckish in a traffic jam on the way home from work.*

Meanwhile I’m far too busy looking out of the window at the snow to write. But the advent calendar continues.

*unless you are a dog.

    But do they keep a tin opener in the car as well?

    I think I would rather eat my own hand than a tin of dogfood.

    Dog, and cat, food is made from meat that is passed fit for human consumption – at least in the UK – just in case somebody eats it, but, I agree, you’d have to be pretty desperate to eat it!

    I’d rather starve than eat dog food!! but I do like the point about the can opener.

  4. John – In Norway they sell dog food in a can with a ring pull, so you can open it one handed whilst driving. Cutting your hand badly on the lid of the can as you pull the ring can feel a bit like eating your own hand.

    Andy – I suspect that more of us have eaten dog food at some point than we think. Incidentally, as a child I went through a phase of eating dog biscuits. I wasn’t starving but the dog seemed quite happy to share.

    Becky – you could try some dog biscuits first.
