So sorry to hear about your loss, my sympathies. I recently lost my dog and had a bunch of left over food too, it sucks.
I personally decided against composting the feed for fear of attracting mice, possums, raccoons etc.
Kicked around the idea of feeding it to the chickens as a treat, but it had chicken as an ingredient, so thought best not to go that route.
Ended up scattering it around the state forest, far from any houses.

Has anyone tried this?
So sorry to hear about the passing of your puppy, C Rogers. :-( Regarding what to do with the puppy food, another option is to donate it to the local animal shelter or pound. They typically are always looking for supplies - food, blankets, bowls, etc.
If not, yeah sure you can use it. I asked a similar question like a year ago, here is the thread: dog food as fertilizer . I probably should have posted pictures of how it ended, but long story short, yeah it works very well. Don't overkill though.
Stay calm and be positive
Just the other day, I was thinking ... about this tiny ad:
