Puff and I drove the Honda 5 speed into KC, MO, to pick up another bag of Kirkland C&R dog food, plus some dishwasher & laundry detergent, and another jar of Kirkland G&C.* (Consumer Reports hasn't rated the dog food but those 3 other products are at or near the top of their charts and are rated "Best Buys".)
I was surprised to see a BLUE bag of Kirkland dog food now with the other colors (their C&R bag is maroon, their L&R is green). It was labeled for Senior dogs, 7 years and older.* The grains in it are rice and barley -- no wheat or corn.
Anyone tried this new food?
Off topic -- FWIW, I'd filled up the Honda a few days before the trip and driven around town and then to the garage for a preventative timing belt replacement.* When we started for KC, there was 53 miles on the odometer since the fill up.* It was warm enough so that I ran the a/c most of the way in to Costco but not at all on the way back.* *The route we drive is half Interstate and half similar type highway but going and coming we have about 5 miles of city driving through Lawrence, KS, with traffic lights, stops, etc., where we switch from the Interstate to the other limited access, divided 4 lane highway.
When we returned, I filled it up again.* 179.5 miles, 3.93 gallons of gas.*
WOW!!* I'm impressed (and greatly relieved!)* That rounds to 46 mile per gallon.* Now if my feet on the gas and clutch can just master smooth up-shifts in 1st & 2nd and if my hand will instinctively learn the different spatial locations of 2nd & 4th as well as 3rd & 5th.* It's getting better........ :

LOL @ Bob grinding the gears in the 5-speed tranny!
I feed my dogs the Kirkland lamb and rice with Solid Gold turkey and fish canned food. All 3 (10yo Lab mix, 5yo Lab, and 1yo JRT) are doing great. I'll have to check out the label on the senior food.
I don't do senior food unless the senior is having issues with regular food. I love my Honda Bob.

Bob, do you know what the protein % is in the new senior food?

I've seen it at my Costco; they also have Puppy Food but it doesn't seem to be consistent with keeping it in like the two others. I'll stick with the C&R.
Honda's are the bomb!!
