Well, here we are again. Its nearly Thanksgiving and I have lots of stuff to be thankful for.

For one, Fleas this year were not a problem! (Thats a big one!) further more my Vet Check up was fine and dandy.

Our little family, Mom(Joyce),Dad(John)and I are doin' fine.

Mom changed my Photo to my Christmas photo so we can start getting ready for the NEXT big day of the year too.

Like every year my CHRISTMAS STOCKING will be getting full of nice things like rawhide bones ( I'm hoping for the compressed kind cause I love to chew them up.) and maybe a new stuffed Teddybear (I kinda 'killed' my last years one already)Oh and yes, I am hoping for a big bag of Nutradent treats to. (Mom says they are kinda expensive but worth it.)She whispers to Dad stuff like they help keep my teeth clean and breath smelling nice. But who cares about that? I just like how they taste!

I still don't get the Expensive thing yet but then again I don't have to I'M A DOG !

Dad says I am spoiled!! What does that mean?

If it means that Mom buys the best food she can to keep me healthy and great rawhide bones, treats and toys... WELL then Im Spoiled and loving it !!!!!! OH yeah and visits to my Vet. (do I have to be thankful about that ?) OH well, Dr. Laroach is nice even if she does give me shots... YUCK!

Heres Hoping all you Pups out there are Spoiled and Thankful too!

We pups need to be THANKFUL to, ya know, to the ALL GOOD GOD OF LOVE for our homes and familys. HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL!!

HI Gang ...


I have barked about my dog food allergy problem before in this blog...

But I'm gonna do it again ... Why ? cause if it were not for Mom and a few of her on line pals I would still be an Itchy unhappy alergic dog with tummy problems !

I came home Sept. 24th 2007 from the SPCA of Ct. The SPCA did not know I had a food allergy... They fed me what all the other dogs got ( dog food companys donate foods to dog shelters , THANK HEAVENS!) But I came home Itchy , and uncomfortable with really nasty lose poop. Not the SPCAs fault they do the best they can for so many of us lost and or abandoned animals. '

Mom became the doggie problem detective. Asking questions of everyone she knew... Like the VET, online pals, anyone who knew more about Bichon Frises like me then she did. She hit the computer and learned all she could about all sorts of doggie health problems, first trying to pin down my problem then to find the answer.

Lots of dogs have this problem. We found out I'm alergic to corn , wheat and maybe even soy. Geesh! Now Mom and Dad are retried so Cost was also a problem .
Corn , wheat and even soy are FILLERS in many (most ) regular dog foods.
( dog foods without these things are really quite costly! )
Fillers are used to make dog foods less costly to produce thus to allow the dog foods to be more affordable and to make the dog food companys more Money...not to make dogs more healthy !

After much time and labor , we settled on a Natural Holistic dog food that YES, is less costly then the BETTER KNOWN NATURAL (at the Pet shop)type dog foods but still more then regular comercial dog foods on shelf of grocery stores. It works for us ! IT can be found ! Still not easy to afford for folks like Mom and Dad trying to simply make ends meet ... but do-able. Mom and Dad think I'm worth the extra cost, thank goodness they can manage it on a fixed income.

I have mentioned the brand before Not to put down other dog food brands but to let folks know it is there at most grocery stores and may help their dogs with similar dog food based allergy. HARMONY FARMS HOLISTIC DOG FOOD.

Dogs can be allergic to many things...CORN, WHEAT and SOY are only a few .

Some dogs are even allergic to some Common Meats..., like Chicken or Beef.

For these dogs ... it may be even more difficult to find a dog food that is still affordable.
Since dog foods with other protien source meats are even more expensive .

If you suspect your dog is allergic ...Keep looking for the answer... Vets can be a valuable source of knowlage but online info can be very helpful as well. Keep looking ..Its out there!!

Again , May all you DOGSTER Pups have a Happy and Healthy New Year!
