Raw Feeding Update Category: Pets and Animals
There is an incredible amount of information out there to absorb. The principals are basic and simple, but they lead to so many more questions and avenues of thought. But let's just start by saying that the dogs are doing WONDERFUL on the raw food. Cooter started out hesitantly and still prefers poultry to red meat, but he actually jumped around my feet yesterday, dancing for his food - something he has never done before. And another first, this morning while getting ready for work, Daisy found an empty food bowl and brought it to me! She looks so much better now and is going back to the doc next week for a follow-up blood test to make sure that her pancreas is totally out of the woods. Everyone seems very happy with the changes going on here and their fur is even more soft these days. The stools are smaller, they need less water to drink, and thier stools aren't as stinky, either! They say after a few months on raw, the doggy odor goes away. I'll have to get back to you all on that one.
Oh - and you should have seen Mariah steal a whole egg from Fabio who had no clue what to do with it. She carried it around, nosed it, rolled it, carried it some more, then finally figured out how to get into it - lol.
This is a pretty neat brochure that lays out a simple explanation on raw feeding and has some good links on it, if anyone is interested:
Tony has been ordering more equipment for his studio. He just received a light set with umbrellas in the mail and a holder for the backdrops. There are a few professional-type backdrops on order, then we're going to get new pics of all the dogs up! He's also been shanghied by the council to take pics of all the Village council members for our new updated page to be posted soon. Should be fun!
