Having good provisions, be it for a disaster or a holiday party is always essential. We think about the basics, nutrition and water but we don't always think about the other things that make life good, coffee, perhaps a small tin or two of savory or sweet snacks. . and how about DOG FOOD. I always keep an extra 40 pound bag stored in a watertight tub plus a few weeks worth of doggie drinking water in gallon jugs that I can use in a pinch, or load in the truck fast if it's not safe to stay in my home. But that's not enough for more than short term for him.
My dear gal friend Laura B. has a great post up about prepping food for Fido. Be it a natural disaster, or economic hardship, you want to make sure you have rations with a good shelf life to feed all of your family, just just the two legged ones.
Go read and remember, while you are prepping for the zombie apocalypse or just the holidays, stay safe.
It's all fun and games til someone pokes an eye out.
