Poodle Feeding times are...
Movie video of the plant singing
Cole is a challenging dog when it comes to food. He has developed so many food allergies that we are limited mostly to Science diet ZD and a few vegetables. He has become skinny because he hates kibble.
"Mommy, I want to eat a chipmunk or bunny" (Cole sends message telepathically)
I am opposed to catching said animals and frying them up.
He must eat to take his pain meds, so we are often doing a song and dance to get him to eat. (come on, you like this) As my friend Pat says of her dog Mindy, we all gather around to observe the miracle that is Cole eating. He will eat by himself at his raised feeding station half of the time at least.
He will eat kleenex anytime he finds one. He has been known to eat toys and dance shoes.
(see the carnage here in this post showing remains of shoes)
His preferred feeding method is being fed by spoon, one kibble at a time, heated with a bit of canned food mixed in.
He also likes finger food.
The blue bag on the floor is an ice pack, that was just held to his shoulder as he's had an upset tummy so I haven't been giving the pain meds.
My husband has hurt his back lifting this poodle into the tub for a bath. I have a serious back injury that requires coping, and now the dog...
Well, we are a family, we three, and a family pulls together through thick and thin and illness.
