My puppy … you gotta love her … she totally lives for her food.
Back on March 15th we got a new bag of Nutro’s Healthy Choice Lamb and Rice formula dog food for large breed puppies. After we dumped the contents into one of her dog food bins Midnight couldn’t resist looking in the bag to see if we’d forgotten any pieces or crumbs.
I’d cut out a portion of the bag because I wanted to keep the feeding directions. When you have a growing puppy it’s important to know how much you should be feeding them when they reach a certain weight or age range. So there was a small cut out in the bag.
She dove into the bag and ended up wearing it on her head. It was pretty funny and I couldn’t resist taking some pictures.
At least, thanks to photography, I now know exactly how long the second largest bag lasts! We just opened another bag for her last night so one bag lasts approximately one month. Well … we mix it with another dog food – Blue Buffalo Large breed chicken and brown rice for puppies, so I guess if we were only feeding her the one food a bag would only last 15 days. Boy, dogs are expensive!
Whenever I post photos of Midnight people comment on how shiny her coat is and some have asked what we’ve been feeding her. Well now you know – Nutro Healthy Choice Lamb and Rice formula dog food for large breed puppies and Blue Buffalo Large breed chicken and brown rice for puppies.
When we first got her she was pretty sick. She had a bacterial infection in her bowel, roundworms, diarrhea, an eye infection and then an ear infection, dry skin and dandruff. Her coat wasn’t always nice and shiny, but about a month after she came to live with us we started to notice how shiny her fur was becoming. I guess it was one of the first signs that she was getting healthier.
She still has red eyes (and we’re still treating them) and her movements are sometimes still loose so she gets Pepto Bismol every day, but overall she’s a very happy fairly healthy 7.5 month old puppy who’s extremely motivated by food!
Her latest pastime is climbing on the couch and looking out the window or ringing the bell we hung from the front door to go outside.
BTW the window is smudged. She rubs her wet nose on it and licks the window as she watches what’s going on outside.
Do your pets do silly things when you get a new bag of food or even when you are about to feed them? Midnight runs and jumps around the kitchen and whines as we prepare her food. Silly dog.
I have another story and cute picture of Midnight on one of my other blogs if you’re interested.
