|She is 8 weeks old, weighs 3 pounds, and Mom named her "Bridget". She has a very laid back and trusting disposition, and is cute as a button. I wanted a "docile" dog for my mom, as Mom is frail these days; I don't think we could have done better than Bridget.
And she's bright! At the pet shop, Bridget liked to play with our shoe laces, a behavior to break early. Well, I got her a little rubber chew toy with some twine on each end, put it by my shoe, and she totally got it! No more attacking our shoes, she took the new toy and owned it. She even barked at it (so cute) and pranced off with it knowing that she owns that.
Needless to say, my Mom is thrilled.
But I am finding conflicting advice on the Internet, and among local breeder(s) as to what to feed this cutey.
Whatever happened to the Internet? Now it's like, "We have the answers, buy my book!" Or pay a monthly subscription fee that you opt out of at any time! Yeah, right.
I raised a show quality Dobe way back when, so I am not without some experience. But you don't feed a Doberman table scraps and expect to pay the mortgage at the same time. I'm getting conflicting information about the "little dog" Pomeranian. One source says don't feed her commercial products, one says do.
So, here I am to ask? What has been your experience and best advice?
