Default Purina Diet


I have 6 large dogs and was buying several large bags of Iam's at Costco, and I was standing in line to check out. The woman behind me asked if I had a dog?


On impulse, I told her no, I was starting The Purina Diet again and I probably shouldn't because I'd ended up in the hospital the last time. But I'd lost 20 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IV's in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again. I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story, particularly a tall guy who was standing behind her.

Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me?

I told her no, I'd been sitting in the street licking my butt and a car hit me.

hahaha at least she didn't ask where she could get the book for the Purina diet...

Thank you Yael you just gave me another great shaggy dog story.
