A gentleman well past retirement age wanted some wet and dry puppy food for a litter of five Jack Russell puppies he had bred. We settled on a well-known brand of dry food but I could not convince him on which wet food to buy as he was refusing to pay £1 or more per sachet for wet puppy food. He did not want a very well-known grocery brand of wet food but was unwilling to pay for anything else so in the end he just bought the dry food. A few days later he came back for another bag of dry puppy food and announced that the puppies would soon be going to their new homes so he would not have to buy ‘overpriced’ puppy food any more and, by the way, he was getting £1,800 per puppy where last year he only got £800. It just irritates me that some people who are selling puppies at such high prices are stinting on food, which is so important in a fast growing pup.
