Canned dog food advice?

We have two small dogs. I usually make our dogs’ food but realized during food shortages last year that finding ingredients could be challenging. Food is now back on the shelves, but we just had an ice storm with a power outage at home and all the dog food (that I just made and froze last week!) may be spoiled. We won’t know until we return back home in a few hours.

I’d like recommendations for a good canned dog food. I had previously used Merrick years ago.

Thanks in advance!

Man, the "Q" usage today is amusing me!

GQP and "Qrazy" are two of my favorites.

Any other good ones you've seen?

Okay, am I dumb? I thought he was supposed to be inaugurated at 12 noon?

Although it couldn't be soon enough.

Can any suggest American TV shows that I can watch which are

dubbed in Spanish? Not just subtitles, but dubbed. I'm trying every way possible to improve my Spanish.

I was hoping my "The Office" dvds were dubbed, but there are only subtitles

Thanks.

Who can I talk to who can explain what my father did/went through during the last two

days of his life last weekend?

My brother and I tended to our father as he died and I wanted to find some answers regarding what we saw and heard, and his behaviors over those last two days. I'm going to reach out to the hospice social worker, but who else might be able to explain it to me?

Thanks.

UPDATE: My 93-year-old father is very close to death from congestive heart failure.

Thank you to this virtual family/friend group. My father died this morning. He was under hospice care at my brother’s home and died at home as he wanted to. We had access to medication and professional advice to help him with anxiety, pain, and other issues.

Thank you so much.

Original post:

I’m here with him and my brother. It’s been a horrible few days for him. Please send prayers and good vibes for a peaceful passage.

This has been so hard to witness.

Didn't the Senate Republicans block election security bills?

If only they could have done something before this election to make themselves feel better about election security.

Jackass Republican Congressman Mullen on NBC

is “both-sides”-ing the insurrection today. They’ve never seen this from Trump supporters, he insists! There were antagonists amongst them.

Good God.

I wonder if the Republicans who didn't flinch when

school children were ambushed and killed in schools now have an inkling of how terrifying it is for children to have drills for “sheltering in place” as they hunker down for protection? Or how it feels to survive such an attack?

A New Use for an Old Drug: UVA Researchers Discover Potential COVID-19 Treatment

CHARLOTTESVILLE – Before COVID-19 ever hit America’s radar, a professor at the University of Virginia discovered a way to treat it. It’s not a treatment in the sense that the drug prevents or stops the novel coronavirus. However, it lessens the symptoms if a person contracts the virus.

Professor Alban Gaultier, of UVA’s Department of Neuroscience and its Center for Brain Immunology, partnered with former UVA graduate student Dorian Rosen. Together, the pair discovered a link between fluvoxamine, an antidepressant, and sepsis, when the immune system creates too many inflammatory molecules.

The professor and student discovered that the antidepressant reduced cytokine production. That discovery, made last year, struck a chord with Washington University researches studying the coronavirus.

The Washington University School of Medicine team in St. Louis, Missouri, studied whether or not administering the antidepressant could prevent serious complications with COVID, thought to occur from cytokine storms. They displayed impressive findings after a small clinical trial.
