Has anyone seen the Blue commercial? I don't feed Blue but I'm glad there's finally a commercial with some truth!
I thought the same thing. Im so sick of seeing that Iams commercial with the english bulldog thats always on.
Exactly I hate that commercial! No offense to the breed but they've got to be one of the unhealthiest, conformationally challenged breeds out there and they choose that as their picture of health and fitness?
My thoughts exactly. I think its because the English Bulldog is somehow an icon for america, becuase most people dont have any idea what the origional bulldog looked like.
Not trying to turn this into a breed debate or anything, but English Bulldogs are one of my least favorite breeds. I love ALL dogs, just for being dogs, but IMO when a breed of dog can no longer mate naturally, give birth, walk/run normally, or even breathe normally, we've gone to far. I guess its just because the English Bulldog is a popular "tuff" looking dog, Iams thought it would make their brand look better.
Same thing with Eukanuba and Purina One commercials Ive seen.
The only big name brand dog commercial I thought wasnt all that bad, was the Pedigree one. Several of their commercials promote shelter dogs. So even if their food is crappy, at least they are promoting a good cause.
