Wow! Love the picture of Mink snuggle in between the dogs! So happy for the little guy!
Three bags from different batches of each food were mixed and fed to four adult (10-mo-old, 2.4–2.6 kg) male mink. Minks were selected as a model due to high accuracy and documented high correlation to digestibility in dogs (). The mink used were kept for other experiments after termination of this study. Norwegian protocols of experiments involving live animals were followed. The protocols of the digestibility experiment were identical to those used in the experiment by Ahlstrøm and Skrede (). Digestibility of dry matter, crude protein, amino acids (not tryptophan), crude fat, starch, and total carbohydrates were determined on the basis of analyses of food (one analysis) and freeze-dried feces (average of four separate analyses). In addition, analyses were done on food contents of crude fiber, calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. Analyses were carried out at AnalyCen AB, Lidköping, Sweden using methods approved by the European Communities and other standardized methods (–). Digestibility of gross energy was determined using bomb calorimetric measurements of food and individual samples of feces. The metabolizable energy (ME) content was measured by using 18.8, 39.7, and 17.6 kJ/g digestible crude protein, fat, and carbohydrates, respectively. The general linear model (GLM) procedure of Statistical Analysis System () was applied in analysis of variance. The significance of differences in digestibility between foods within each price category were determined by the Ryan-Einot-Gabriel-Welch multiple F-test.
o__O Wow. Ok, I understand doggie houses and designer dog collars and food bowls but what’s with the mink fur coat thingy??? Totally unnecessary. But I like the ridiculous dog perfume thing Lol.
No, but I’d buy a dog fur coat for my mink.

You may have heard of a bridge in Scotland where dogs supposedly inexplicably jump to their deaths, committing suicide over the years and leading to speculation of supernatural explanations. However, the actual number of dogs falling off the bridge is greatly exaggerated and scientists have explained that dogs are attracted to a strong scent of mink that have nested under the bridge.Also, the reports of the amount of deaths are likely greatly exaggerated. After one skeptic decided to further research the story (because it sounded like an urban legend to him), the whole thing started to unravel. Several different newspapers started reporting versions of the story a while back, but none of them could agree on how many dogs actually died. The numbers ranged anywhere from 5 to 50 and no one had any evidence to back up a single one of their claims. The moral of this story is that dogs really like the smell of mink and probably canât commit suicide.The specialist saw that the animal seemed intrigued by the particular section everyone talks about in the stories, so he investigated the lower part of the bridge near that spot more thoroughly. Several animal nests were found, including mink. After testing, the scientists found that dogs really, really liked the mink scent—a lot. So, it turns out that the dogs just really wanted to get after those mink, and their little doggy brains didnât realize what kind of drop they were dealing with. It should also be noted that the same specialist explained that it is impossible for a dog to commit suicide, as it cannot premeditate its actions in such a manner.My second surprise was that mink “by products” are used in dog food. Tell me this is incorrect. Apparently, the mink industry is alive and well. Who is buying and wearing mink coats anymore??? I wouldn’t dare. Sure, our mothers had them, but it just isn’t done anymore.
