QUOTE OF THE DAY:
"In a dog's perfect world, every greeting would be consummated with a shared piece of meat"
Hi my friends,
I'm kinda in a little bit of trouble right now. The other night the Mommy said she needed to have a little talk with me about my picky eating habits and she wanted for me to listen carefully. So I sat right down and waited for her to start the lecture. OK....Mommy, you have my attention!
She presided to tell me, that every since my brothers left, I haven't been wanting to eat and it worries her that if I don't eat I will get sick. I tried to tell its not that I don't want to eat, I just don't like dry dog food.....I want people food. She told me that it's OK for me to eat some chicken & steak people food when she wants to share but that I need a more balanced dinner plan. My Uncle Ron told her to put some water in my dry food and it would make gravy.....BLAH, GAG, Nasty stuff!!
So we have started something new and I have to admit that it's not too bad. We been seeing commercials with a cute little fluffy dog talking to his Daddy about which dinner he wants that tastes like a treat. It's called BENEFUL prepared meals. There are 4 different kinds. So the Mommy has been giving me half of a 10 oz bowl with a half cup of Purina One dry dog food. She is mixing it together, so I have to eat both because the gravy (real not water) is all over the dry one. She is soooo tricky!! The Mommy is not telling anybody to change their food but it works for me. Dr Ainsworth, my vet, said I really should be eating more than that but I say, a girl has to keep her girlish figure when she gets to be my age. Besides as you can see from my treat picture, it's not like I'm being deprived or anything. Besides I still hold out for my daily morning and after work treats, my fat free cheese, some chicken and steak once in a while and off course my BONES!!!
My treats? Do you think I have enough?
So this morning the Mommy went to the grocery story and I was patiently waiting (can you see, I am waiting patiently) to see if she bought some of my favorite treat which is also very good for us doggies joints.
Dr Ainsworth wanted Samantha to take GLUOCOSAMINE tablets when she got older but she would just spit them out when the Mommy wasn't looking so when they started making these she decided it wouldn't hurt to get me started on keeping my joints healthy.
HAPPY HIPS CHICKEN BREAST STRIPS.
Yahoo!! Yippie!! She found them!! I'm in HEAVEN.
Gotta go now. Hope everybody is having a wonderful time with their International Goody Exchange goodies......I sure am. My stuffie Velcro gave me never leaves my side and I think Mona Lisa is jealous but I still love her too.
Mona & the Mommy too!!!
