I ran across this yesterday at a pet store in Mission Viejo. Maybe you guys have seen it, maybe not. Makes me want to crack it open and make a sandwich. The only way I can afford Ahi Tuna and Tiger Prawns is to buy it in a dog food. Blasted dog eats better than I do.

Gee coruscate, ya know this stuff is probably like most pet foods in general so it's probably just ground guts, rendered bones, eyes for flavor and the scales for texture so at least nothing goes to waste from human consumption and hey, how else is a dog to get it's omega 3 oils...?!?

The description on the can sure makes it sound tasty!

theres Tiki Dog and Tiki Cat, food and toys.. i think the packaging is cute. PetEdge catalog used to sell the toys deeply discounted, but i dont see them offered anymore.

and for you, here's some info about the
food itself:

Tiki Cat is made from Premium Wild Caught Seafood

Tiki Cat MEETS DOLPHIN SAFE CERTIFICATION (IATTC)

Tiki Cat is registered with the International Dolphin Conservation Program (IATTC), which sends a conservationist inspector onto the fishing vessels in order to ensure appropriate procedures are met to maintain this IATTC status.

I saw the can and thought...OMG what happened to Trader Pup!

Also, I believe Ahi tuna is fully fished, not overfished.
Yellowfin Tuna listed as a good choice here.

Tiger Prawn is a bad choice, but not every fish that comes out of the sea is wasted or a damage to the environment.

Looks like a SHAG ripoff.

EDIT: WOW! the other posts before Unga didn't even show up in my inbox- so I was confused.
Now I get it!

I am a dog lover. (Currently, w/o one.)

As a marketer, I can surmise the there are so many dog and cat products on the shelves, that the need to be different, particularly when you can't outspend the national brands, is great. So... you come up with Tiki Dog and Tiki Cat.

I notice my favorite grocery store continues to expand the pet food isle. There's a whole lotta money being spent on pets, even when the economy is shaky.

Tiki Dog costs more than a gallon of gas.

My dogs wont be getting Tiki Dog. There are enough high end brands that cost half as much. Evanger's, Wellness, Innova & Merrick to name a few.

I did buy three small cans for the tiki factor though! North Shore, Lomi Lomi and Pipeline.

I always thought rumaki would make a nice tiki dog food substitute and while I don't have a dog I'll pick up a few cans and put them on the shelf by the Shasta Tiki Punch.

I buy WalMart's "Old Roy" and tell her it's expensive "Tiki Dog" - SHE CAN'T READ!!!

I love my dog, and I'm enthusiastic for people to feed them well and support somone making a go at it.

I'm also a big fish eater (and little ones too).

Polynesian Culture and the marine environment go hand in hand.
Polynesian Pop restaurants and bars often serve fish as part of that theme.
Products that take on Tiki and Polynesian themes to use ocean products acquired in sustainable ways are a good idea and reinforce the foundations behind high quality Polynesian and Polynesian Pop lifestyles.
