I think she looks a lot like a Great Pyrenees pup (maybe mixed with something?). That would also explain the double dew claws. She's beautiful!

I think it's wonderful that you're fostering! I fostered for Desert Labrador Rescue for a couple of years, and it was the most rewarding experience. Challenging sometime, yes, as most of the fosters were young dogs - but very rewarding.

You might take Hoss & Lola for a bit of a walk together once they meet for a few seconds at the green area. Sometimes that helps calm things if the initial intro is overly excited. Sounds like you're prepared, though. Hope everything goes well! cheer

Raw Food Diet > Irritability During Transition?

I never thought about sugar withdrawal, Meridian, but that makes so much sense! Thank you!

He's feeling better, and the irritability is only occasional now. And the heat surely isn't helping. He's inside in the A/C 95% of the time, but he heats up fast & cools down slow. It also cust down on our ball playing. It's not humid, but it's scorching in the sun & neither of us likes to stand outside when it's like that. Even Cliff will quit after a few throws!

Wow, Tyson - you are lucky! (and I talk to my dogs while we're out walking, too, so don't feel bad!)

Raw Food Diet > dairy/supplementing.

We use the occasional cheese for treats around here, but I've always been hesitant to give my dogs other dairy products, too. It's just my intuition speaking, but it doesn't seem species appropriate, so I avoid it.

I suppose cottage cheese would be a inexpensive source of protein if someone was on a budget & needed the meat to stretch further. Seems like sticking to meat sources would be the best route to go, though.

Why did the other owners feel dairy was so important?

I'm so glad that someone else thought that, too, Blake! When I read that Dr. Lonsdale recommended feeding a chicken carcass after the meat had been removed for human use, I was really confused. That's an awfully high ratio of bone to meat! I haven't read the book yet, so maybe he clarifies.

No worries, Zane! I knew you weren't pickin' on me!

I guess it's true that you have to weigh the risks against the benefits. It does seem as though these are rather isolated incidents. My husband is much more comfortable with grinds for now, so we'll go that route for a bit longer. Maybe we'll do the occasional chicken quarter so that we both can get used to it slowly!

Yeah, I suppose that could be. She made it sound like the dog jumped up from the carcass & ran around yelping in pain. If the bone punctured far enough, I could see that happening. I guess you never know, though. She could have left it there for a period of time.

One of the book reviews of Dr. Lonsdale's book that I read today was written by a woman who said that feeding whole carcasses to her dog cost her $2500 in vet bills. She evidently fed her Irish Setter half a chicken (which is the size we would need to feed), and one of the small bones got stuck between the dog's teeth & pierced the roof of its mouth. shock

Just when I think I'm ready to go chicken parts vs. ground, I hear something like that. The check out girl at the dog food store told me she had to pull a bone fragment out of her chihuahua's gum, too. What the heck? I really want the dental benefits, but man that scares me!

Yep! My husband made the mistake of telling a woman & her husband that he was buying meat for our dogs, and she was just appalled! She couldn't believe we were going to feed that perfectly good meat to the dogs! shock

Even the butcher where I go to pick up the ground raw that we've been feeding looks at me like I'm outta' my mind for feeding the dogs such expensive stuff. Or maybe he just thinks I'm crazy for paying for the ground stuff when I could get the whole cuts cheaper!! laugh out loud He's probably right!
