Raw Food Diet > Premium meat kibble vs homecooked vegetarian diet

Rather than alienate your family members by calling them selfish, I recommend acknowledging that dogs can and DO thrive on a well-made vegetarian diet...as long as they are providing a balanced diet for their dog I would not browbeat them about how they choose to do so.

When I managed a pet feed store, we had a dozen or so customers who fed their dogs a meatless diet...some for health reasons, some because of personal preference. The dogs were fine. One of them was a show dog(standard poodle), with a stunning coat and a lively gait.

The hate on here toward people who make different choices never ceases to amaze me.

Some dog trainers in my area provide a service where they will go "dog shopping" with a family that wants to adopt, and help them find a good match. Maybe call up a few trainers in your area and see if anyone is willing to give you a hand? smile Good luck in your search!

Jasper says maggoty fish carcass sounds like a FANTASTIC cologne, and he'll be keeping an eye out for them next time I let him run out at the nearby lake. >.

Today on our walk, Jasper stopped to roll. I smiled because somtimes after he's been cooped up he likes to have a good roll on the grass and it's really cute.

Then I spied what looked like a tangle of sticks he was rolling in, and leaned in to look closer.

Ah, it was a rotting crow carcass, and the tangle of sticks was its feet. It was in the "liquefying" stage of decomposition, and there were carcass juices all over Jasper and his collar. I MUST start looking when he does that telltale "I'm gonna roll!" circle that he does.

We finished our walk and then walked straight to the self-service dog wash about a mile away. I bought him a new collar, washed him, and we walked back home. Normally I'd bathe him at home rather than spend $15 to use someone else's tub but...no, just no. I didn't want that stink in my house or my car.

The last time something like this happened it was goose poop and he was COVERED in green sludge form nose to tail. We tossed him in the creek to rinse off before driving home. He smelled like icky creekwater, but better that than crusted-on goose poop.

Anyone else have a good "My dog rolled in..." story?

I'd like to see guest posting disabled entirely. If the guests aren't spambots, they are digging up nine year old posts that should have been locked eight years ago.

Why in the world would you bump a thread from 2005?! Oh wait, I just bumped it again by posting that.

Come on, shouldn't threads be locked after say....a year with no posts? Nevermind NINE YEARS...

I'd start with large adult mice for their first time, and see how it goes. I gave Jasper a rabbit for his first whole animal and he was baffled. I wish I'd started him with something smaller. smile
