Only a week until Thanksgiving, so let’s talk about food! 🦃🍂 This morning, Judge ate 1 pound of raw beef patties (beef, organ, bone, & veggie blend), 1 organic raw egg with shell, and a turkey neck. Tonight, he’ll eat @stellaandchewys Raw Blend (freeze dried raw coated baked kibble + freeze dried raw). That’s right..he eats both raw AND kibble. For those who can’t afford to feed completely raw, don’t be deterred from giving your dog fresh food once in a while just because they eat kibble! The more often you can incorporate raw/fresh food into their diet, the better! I’d like to add that every dog is different, and not all do well on raw. Raikou can’t eat raw. I’ve tried dozens of different proteins and brands and every time without fail, he vomits. There’s just something about raw meat that doesn’t settle well in his tummy. But that doesn’t mean he can’t still eat fresh food! He does fine with cooked meats, raw turkey necks, bones & eggs, and freeze dried raw foods. Every dog is different, but I think giving them the best possible diet is the most important thing you can do for them! What do you feed your dogs?!
Growing up I treated the dogs on the farm like “farm dogs” they weren’t ever allowed in the house. They were put away every night. They were our work dogs and just fun companions on the farm. Over the years had tons of dogs come and go so only got attached to a few. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fast forward to the present day. I’ve got “house dogs” (one that sheds so much I wish she could be outside but we live in an apartment at the moment). The love I have for these 2 dogs is ridiculous sometimes. They are so spoiled and loved on. I’m so dang attached that if anything happens to either of them it’s gonna be like losing a family member. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I will never understand the unconditional love that a dog gives. No matter how many times I snap at them for chewing on things they aren’t supposed to, or peeing in the closet, or dragging the dirty laundry around, or knocking over things when they are playing too rough, or barking at 3 a.m. They still come running with tails wagging when called and act as if none of the above scenarios ever happened.#sappydogpostover#iabsolutelylovethem#dogmomlife#minigoldendoodle#aussiehuskymix#doodlemomma#wedontdeservedogs#livingourbestliferightnow#mydood#mylittledood#crazydoglady#missmillie#akamillsters#mrterk#akaturkeyorterksters#myworkoutpals 🐶🐶 #mycuddlebuddies#mybestfriends
Just a fraction of the succulents I salvaged from the sidewalk. I gave the rest to neighbors. Large stalks broke under their own weight and were on the sidewalk for about two weeks before I salvaged them. Calico needs to inspect EVERYTHING that goes into her gardens. Always hoping for sod or turf. A little hot dog needs a drink after several trips up and down our 32 stairs from the street! #calicologue#succulents#hotdog#salvage#dogsofinstagram#huskyaussiemix#aussiehuskymix
