I’ve received thousands of press releases over the years, many of them a little "strange," but none stranger than this one. Actually, Dick Van Patten kind of looks like a dog, if you think about it.

Press release:

We thought your readers might like a story on how people can now eat delicious dog food with their pets!

Dick Van Patten from "Eight is Enough" is now known as "Woof-gang Van Patten" and The King of Canine Cuisine due to his line of dog food from Natural Balance, one of the biggest pet food companies in the world.

Natural Balance has just introduced a new brand of dog food known as "Eatables for Dogs." That is the first made in a "people food" plant, with 100% USDA ingredients. Meaning, it’s edible for humans — in fact, Dick has been eating it himself with his dogs!

Flavors include Spaghetti & Meatballs, Southern Style Dumplin’s, Hobo Chili, Irish Stew and Chinese Take-Out.

You can find out more about Dick and the company at — His Natural Balance food company is currently doing 60 million a year in sales and supplies food to the Lincoln Park and San Diego Zoos among others.

Dick is available for interviews, as he is truly proud of this product.
