    Lol

    Got all my price lists and things for the new Orijen freeze dried as well as word that they're taking potato out of their dry food to change to lentils and chick peas. Expect a price increase but yay they're getting with the times and removing potato!

    I can't wait to try the freeze dried for Izzie, it would be a great option for traveling if she handles it well =)

    When is this taking place? I'm working on transitioning both Shippo and the new puppy over to Orijen but I'm assuming with the new formulation coming up I will have to do it again when I get the new bag?

    Likely toward the November/December i imagine. They still have to fix their kitchens so production is down.

    I totally know what you mean! I get so *so* excited about new products and things. When we are slow at work we usually are pulling out our distributor catalogs and ordering in new awesome stuff :p

    The other day a customer asked my coworker and I what we did when it was so slow (we just opened our new location 2 weeks and 1 day ago, so it's not exactly Grand Central yet) and her response was: "We nerd out." Too true :p

    So the rep was in today and gave me a bunch of new literature (I nerd out when reps are here and make a fool of myself) and it includes the new ingredient lists of the Orijen dry recipes.

    He said to expect them to drop in January. There will also be a bag design change along with it.
