the raw diet
« on: November 29, 2011, 07:58:09 am »
 ;D  Morning everybody....................
started the "raw diet" yesterday as Dr Kim suggested,and my baby girl loved it,im hoping that the skin on her face will now grow back some hair eventually bless her,not that shes completely bold but she is a tad pink!  :(
Never have i known a dog to be sooooooooo loving,she goes bonkers when phil comes and wants to be picked up and hugged literally lol,and in the evening she just wants to lay on your lap, that is after the hour long tug of war first  ;D
yesterday she just played in the kitchen trying to pounce on the bone that she has,was so funny watching her amuse herself.  ;D
Gona have a house full of kids today as its my becca's birthday so that should be interesting,she's none too keen on the balloons lol  :-\
Anyway chaps and chapesess speak to you all later,have a fab day  :-*  :-*

well daisy just slept her way through screaming kids.........not even a one eye open to see who or what it was bless her.
As for the balloons............................she thought the game was to pop them with her feet,didnt actually bother her at all,although my becs was none too impressed to come home from school and find all the balloons gone!!  :)
tea time for daisy at about 4pm,,,,HHmmmmm well we decided to look at the bowl,look at it a bit more,then we decided to keep head butting the bowl,looked at me and walked off  >:(   dont think she wanted to eat the tea i gave her and it cant be my cooking as it was raw lol ;D
I'm totally pooped so im gona sit and snuggle with me daisy doo on the sofa,so good night all  :-*  :-*  :-*  :-*

Some very helpful links: as a recent convert I cant imagine why I thought dry dog food was the way to go?

Hi Mel ,yep  ;D  Daisy sounds like a typical bullie.... my lot hate the rain too...some bullies won't step one lickle tiny dew claw out  of the front door if it even smells like rain...or is that just my lazy lot?.  ::)

A crate is brill for the car to keep yer wriggly monster in....... it's better (IMO) than a harness.....may not happen to Daisy but my monsters get  their legs tangled up in harnesses... little sods just won't stay still.

Make sure your daughter and her boyfriend are both strong enough to hold Daisy when out walking on their own with her......when she gets fully grown if she decided to pull they may not be able to hold her if she makes up her mind to go for it..... adults can have a job to hold a hurtling bullie........like most terriers  they are strong willed but being bullies they are also very much stronger than most terriers.......I know she is a very good girl on the lead  right now but please be careful as that might change as she matures.... especially if she realizes that they aren't in full control and there is a dog she'd like to run around with or an exciting smell she wants to investigate. The little monkeys will take advantage at each and every opportunity given half a chance.

If she ever got into a fight, heaven forbid, but unfortunately it can happen to the sweetest of dogs...would they be able to stop it or if she is like my Jessy and won't defend herself would they be able to protect her.?.....sorry Hun don't want to put a downer on things for you as things are going so well for you all.

Keep having fun with and enjoying Miss Daisy.
