Just starting

My beautiful baby is about 7 yrs old and has become very finicky these past few months so I decided to change up her dog food. I heard great things about Royal Canin, so I thought I would give it a try. I really didn't have any expectations. She has never eaten just dry dog food. However from the first bite she didn't stop until it was all gone and was looking for more to eat. Thank you Royal Canin. It's just the first day but I am very please thus far.
