Do you like my cheesehead?
Hey, Buzz! What are you doing? It’s not actually cheese!
Buzz, it’s not for eating! It’s for wearing! See….?
Oh, you no likey?
Well, just relax and watch the game, then!
Good luck, Pack!
Or, that’s my thinking on the subject at the moment. Maybe I’ll become a raw ideologue next week and start to rant about different feeding models. Yeah…probably not.
Enough blabbity-blabbing more updatey-updating!
Buzz had his first raw meal today and he did awesome! He knew it was food and he chewed it thoroughly. It’s been about eight hours since his meal and his tummy seems totally calm and normal. Yay Buzz!
Buzz has to sit and say please before he gets his food.
Dinner is served!
He stood for the entire meal. This amused me greatly because he was standing in really awkward positions.
He ate every last morsel!
So far so good with Buzz’s new diet!
No breakfast for Buzz as he starts raw feeding today and I want
(a) to have hunger on my side when I hand him some strange looking food--we are starting with a chicken leg quarter
(b) to have his kibble be mostly out of his system before he puts chicken down the hatch; It takes a dog about 12 hours to digest kibble, meat is much quicker, feeding meat right after kibble can lead to trouble when the meat can't clear out because of a kibble log-jam.
“You broke my ear!”
That’s right, his ear freakin’ pouts!
I have been flirting with switching Buzz to a raw diet for a few months now since he’s never had ideal poop on kibble and I have tried several super premium foods and also just let him mature out of puppyhood as my vet suggested…all to no real good. His shit stinks and it is way too squishy. **yuck** The poo of raw-fed dogs is less than half the size of kibble-fed dogs and is said to be “neat and light.” Ooooo…I’ll take it!
Anyway, this new ear infection is the final straw. I think his slight food allergies just keep his immune system impaired enough that he has no resistance to these things.
So, on the 15th, Buzz is going raw! I’m researching it all now and getting myself very confused but I have found some awesome mentors online and hope to make some local connections so that I can figure it out and get my boy 100% healthy and on the best food possible.
In other news, Buzz has started lifting his leg to pee!
I've noticed over the last few months that Buzz has been marking more as we walk, but lifting his leg is a whole ‘nother realm of fanciness!
He started after our huge snowstorm when there were foot-high snowbanks along the sidewalks, but he’s still doing it sometimes now that the snow has melted!
"I'm a real boy!”
All in all, Buzz had a good time and was fairly well-behaved. He stalked some plates that were in laps, but didn’t snatch any food.
Hanging with the Peruvian, not looking at the camera. (Sorry about the blurriness, it was a lowlight situation and I didn’t want to use my flash much.)
“ah, yes, two lovely ladies, petting me simultaneously. I can handle this!”
Five on a futon!
“We should always have a dozen people over!”
Trying to get a crumb Deb dropped in her lap…bad dog!
