"So long as the homemaker had tc think in terms of cooking specia ! food for the family dog, the recog nized American affinity for pets could not have full play," Mr. Miller states "But the popularization of prepared dog foods released the brake and as a result the per capita dog population in America today is the highest in our history " According to Mr. Miller, prepared dog foods are not only work and time savers for the woman in the home but they are much better balanced and certainly more economical than what she could fix up herself.
