Purina Dog Chow is the world's largest selling brand of dog food, and is today made by the Nestle Company, which purchased the original firm, Ralston Purina of St. Louis. The original company was founded by the Danforth family, and produced chow for dogs, cats, cattle, and other animals. The cane features the checkerboard logo, which has been used by Purina since 1904, and is said to have derived from childhood clothing of the Danforth family.
