I use the fish and sweet potatos.... (Storm has food allergies) This keeps both of their coats so shiney and healthy. I also boil chicken or pork and sometimes just ground beef and add that with some water to the kibble. I feed a cup of dry food for breakfast and then 2 cups + the meet for dinner.... Doggies are sooooo spoiled!!!
I'll have to see if we have that here. Shasta is fussy. Could be because I used to mix meat in with the dry...she got spoiled with that so I stopped awhile back. Then every now and then I give her people food, but I want to stop that too.
Only reason why I did some of this was because she was fussy and finally ate...now she expects the above and looks at me with those big brown eyes after putting only dry food in her dish.
I also want to beef her up more. I tend to think the brindles are skinny anyhow, especially the females.
Marni has extremely longgggggggggg legs! Until she was poorly she was very slender and was very dear like!
She loves anything people sneak to her! She still has a bowl of milk every morning!
As for the walking and buggy combo, we are very naughty in that she doesn't go on a lead. She was trained to do heal walking so walks at the side of the buggy beautifully. We have a massive field right on our doorstep so thats where we go for walks, well runs!
Big wet kisses to all your beautiful boxers! xxxxx
Treats, I have to confess, and no laughing at me, I home bake them!!!! if anyone wants the recipe let me know!! theyre cheap as chips and low fat, nutritious and delicious!!
Arni will walk quite well on the lead until he sees a dog/cat/rabbit/plastic bag/leaf..... then hes all excited! luckily its only about a 5 min walk to our nearest field then i can just let him go and do wha the wants.
Anyone's taken a certain dislike to any other breed? Arni hates golden retrievers, I think he has a thing about blondes!
What's wrong with Marni if you don't mind me asking?
Confession time, who lets their furry friend on the sofa and (gulp) bed?
sofa and bed Although now she is getting on and Lexie is here she does like her own space.
Marni has had endless troubles and thank god for insurance!
She had a malignant lump removed when she was 5, now 2 others have appeared but aren't malignant thank goodness.
She has a heart problem which can sometimes stop oxygen getting to her brain which causes her to collapse. She goes into a spasm and loses control of her body functions so can be very messy when it happens! This mainly happens when she is over excited. how an earth do you stop a boxer from getting excited! She has an irregular heartbeat which she has tried to have regulated by jump starting her heart back into rhythm. And also has a heart murmur.
She also has an under-active thyroid which she is on medication for, but without it she gets very tired, lethargic, constipated, has increased weight gain, dry skin, loss of her fur.
Saying that she is a star for what she has been through. She seems to be always at the vets but she is the softest, most lovable dog ever. We would be totally lost without her. She adores lexie and has now taken to lying outside her bedroom door at night time! We had to move her basket so she was more comfy!
Lyndsey i would love the recipe for the treats if thats ok, she would love them!
