I be doing just fine and Dandy. I has had no problems at all with my switch to raw, though Mum say she has had trouble trying to find a supplier as our old one wont come to grandpawents so it costing her more money that it could do. But I does not care about that. All I care about it the yumminess I be eating now.
I is doing nice, easy to pass poos, no constipation like I always had on kibble and no runnies either and so far no more colitis! Which be very good, on the kibble I was having a ‘wrong’ kind of poo about once a week and was constipated the rest of the times. The owner of my dog pawrents fed us a bit on raw and then I beed on it till I beed 6 months old so I think my tummy just used to it.
I thoughted some of yous might be interested to know more about my diet. Though I knows at least some of yous already knows all about it, especially from reading Stanislaws blog.
I has my own freezer now, but my first bit of food that comed from the butcher had to go in the people freezer for a while. Mum thoughted this piccure be funny. She a strange kind of people what be called a vegematarian. So here my raw minced chicken next to some of her vegetarian food. I not know why it be funny though? Them some frozed liver cakes right at the bottom too, Yum!
I showed you that piccure of the goop I gets and that not look very yummy do it?
Here be what my goops look like before it become goop. It all different vegetables and fruits blended up and I gets one ice cube most days.
I on a ‘prey model’ kinda diet, as best as she can get it, (so I does not really need veggies and stuffs like in the BARF raw, but Mum figures it can’t hurt and knows lots of peoples in her lots of learnings think it might be good to has veggies.)
At the beginning of the week Mum writes out a menu plan of all the things I getting them she make up these little boxes of my food, it easier for grandpaw that way because he feed me in the morning when mum be at work.
I be on about 3% of my bodyweight. With around 10% being edible bone, I likes to crunch the bones all up really well! And 10% being glandular organs, like liver and kidney. I only gets liver twice a week though. I has my kindey made into goop still as I wont chew it, hehe. I loves tripe best! I also get tinned fish once a week, that super de dooper delish too! Oh, oh and egg. hm, that not sooo very delish, but it ok I spose. Oh yes and on a sunday I still gets left over potatoes and stuffs like that so I not missing out. That has always beed Auntie Penny’s treat on a sunday and if you gives her her dinner with no extras in it on a sunday she will go away and not eat it. So I gets the same.
In my boxes this week be tripe, beef, chicken and my first week back with lamb. I had it today and it was super delish! Auntie Penny bees very jealous and looks at her kibbles and looks at me and wants to steal my foods! She do get some bits of raw as treats and she likes it megaloads and loads. But she has to go away when I eating my chicken legs and quarters incase she make me gulp it.
