So if you have been reading the blog for a while you might remember that I have had a couple of different kinds of dog food over the past couple of years. I have also been to the vet several times because I just cannot seem to digest anything right and I have really bad poops. The vet stole my blood and ran all kinds of tests (twice) and everything came back perfect. DUH, I am about as perfect as you get?! But this did not make Mom happy because I was still not digesting and I was going to the bathroom a billion times AND I was starting to get too skinny. So Mom said ENOUGH?!?!?
Mom said NO MORE DOG FOOD FOR YOU JOEY?!?!!!!
Dad and I were like WHAT?! (Notice Tanner is having NO issues with maintaining his um plump figure, talk about a wide load...I am surprised he doesn't beep when he backs up)
Anyway. So I thought Mom was going to let me STARVE to death or something, but then she told me she was going to figure out what was making me sick. So she made some brown rice and gave me that for lunch with some sweet potato baby food. Well, guess what... I MADE A PERFECT POOP...
ON THE CURTAINS! But, Mom was so happy it was a normal poop she really didn't care. You have to realize it had been weeks since I had a solid poo. She was so happy. So she slowly started introducing other stuff into the rice and veggies and determined that Chicken made me sick, Fish was kind of ok, but BEEF was a total winner!!
Mom was so incredibly happy. I mean, look at how skinny I am...
I hope you all love my shirt, Sophie got it for me! I know I look pretty muscular here but really my waist is TOO skinny and Mom can feel my spine and my ribs stick out. Mom gets so sad looking at me sometimes.
So I have been eating raw beef for 5 days and I have great poops. So now Mom is going to work toward getting me a totally nutritiously balanced diet.
So far I get beef kidney or beef stew meat. She also made dog friendly beef broth for on my breakfast of rice and carrots. She ALSO made me a big thing of beans in the crock pot. AND I get fish oil. Once we figure out what all I can eat that doesn't upset my tummy, we will go to the vet to be sure I am getting all the right stuff I need. Mom is also considering giving me raw bones, but she is kinda nervous. So all you dogs out there that get them, tell her I MUST HAVE THEM. Because I REALLY want some :)
The only BAD thing about all of this is I don't make stinky farts any more. Even with the beans I get at lunch everyday, NO STINKY FARTS. WTF?!
Oh well, if anyone has advice for Mom she would really appreciate it. Oh, and Tanner is still on his ultra-premium fancy dog food and veggies. He could eat a hockey puck and still have perfect poop.
So that is my good news. I am on a pawesome home made diet and can't wait to gain some more weight back! So you know this means GIANT STEAKS FOR EVERYDOG for JoeyPalooza!!!
