Connor is a 6 lb. picky Maltese who's been known to go on hunger strikes. Previous attempts to tempt him with doggie "junk food" -- tasty wet foods that aren't well made -- backfire because they upset his digestion. Plus, he only likes those for a couple of days, tops. We were introduced to this food about a month ago. First of all, no upset digestion. Secondly, he stands at the bowl and cries for this food. Unbelievable. It is an added benefit that this isn't doggie "junk food" at all!
