One woman's diet has gone to the dogs - literally. Pet shop owner, Dorothy Hunter from Richland, Washington, is on a 30-day mission to eat nothing but pet food, reported by HuffPo on Tuesday.

Hunter em"barked" on the odd meal plan June 19 while at her business, Paws Natural Pet Emporium and is still on the diet.

"I didn't have time to go get a snack, so I grabbed a bag of treats off the counter, and I was like, wow, you know, these read better than normal people treats," she told KNDO TV. "So I started eating the treats and I was like, you know, I could do this for 30 days."

Hunter's 30-day pet food diet also happens to coincide with the expansion of her store. Imagine that.

"I've also been doing our oven baked blueberry treats, as well as freeze dried green beans, carrots. I'm even doing some canned cat food, one is a succulent chicken, and it actually tastes really good. So I'm really happy with that one. I don't do raw bones or meat products like that, or the frozen because I'm just not into raw."

Hunter has lost at least two pounds eating pet food, and gained a dining partner in employee Amanda Kempf, who has been feeding the pet food to her kids as well.

"My kids love the dog treats as well, and I don't mind them eating those because they are nutritious," Kempf says, "They even told their teachers, who then asked me if it was true. Everything is labeled here so you know what you're buying, and you're buying nutrition."

Of course it's always best to consult with your doctor before starting any new diet, even a dog and cat food diet.
