  1. We've had good luck including canned Pedigree Puppy Food and Purina One in the rotation.
  2. Top with a bit of cheddar and call it Tuna Melt Fine dice = whatever size pieces as you will want to offer. I cut them very small as they are training treats.
  3. You did the right thing. Thank you for understanding the new pup and while doing the right thing for your household, you absolutely did the right thing for her. She will find her perfect place, and I know that the right dog is out there waiting for you. As Jan above said, when I got my first greyhound I had three cats! Of my 20 greyhounds over several years, only four have been cat-safe. Don't feel guilty or regretful, you "done good"!!
  4. How could we forget. Theirs was one of the greatest, true love stories. Thank you for sharing that incredible couple with us, and I am so sorry for your losses. Together again, Fencetop and Mary
  5. Just wanted to chime in that we have successfully used the Treat Method to desensitize hounds as relates to the Annual Corn Cannon (see our update in EEG, Soft Treats). We use Tuna Fudge, apparently it's high value The neighbor < 1/3 mile from us insists every year around this time on setting off a corn cannon, presumably to keep birds out of the corn field. Mind you, we have at least two other similarly located neighbors who manage to successfully grow corn without the use of said Cannon. But I digest. The Dopey Neighbor/Treat method first worked with (Foster)Sweet, who would panic and try to dig her way back into the house every time she heard the shot, which is every 10 minutes, on the hour, 7a-7p, for one/two/or three weeks. Since I couldn't be right with her every second, I would first sing Dopey Neighbor and then shove several Tuna Fudge pieces into her. (Note: Dopey Neighbor must be sung in a high-pitched, off-key "tune" lol) It wasn't long at all before Sweet would hear the shot and start looking for me for her treat. We are now singing to Punkin, and I am so proud of her for also being a quick study. Thank you for posting your video/s!
  6. Back away from the fries and nobody gets hurt Happy #13 birthday Broodie Petunia! This is a tremendous milestone and that you are feeling like five years old makes it even more special. Excellent celebratory noms! Petunia, 13
  7. Thank you for your recipe, those sound delish! It is still far too hot here to turn on the oven but we will try these once decent weather returns
  8. Hmm, so I could save the step of pulverizing the rolled oats into flour and instead just use them whole? Buddy, yay you!!
  9. TBH I kept a portion for myself and added mini chocolate chips. Double success
  10. After his dental last Friday, Aiden is still on a soft diet and until today I was struggling to find appropriate treats. I whipped up these noms and he loves them: 1-1/2 c oat flour (we grind our oats) ~3T peanut butter ~2-3 T honey The mixture is initially coarse but comes together nicely and then shapes into bite-sized pieces. Success Update: We've baked a batch of another fine soft treat that was originally posted by another GT'er back in 2013. It freezes very well and, as the recipe says, the yield is "a ton of treats" Tuna Fudge 2-6 oz cans tuna in water, undrained 2 eggs 1-1/2 c AP flour 1/4 c Parmesan cheese Mix all ingredients and pat into a greased (sprayed) 9x13" pan. Bake at 350F for 20-22'. Let pan cool on rack. Cut into strips, then into fine dice. Excellent for hounds recovering from dentals or for when your hound panics after the Annual Corn Cannon Season begins. Thank you Dopey Neighbors
  11. Aiden has the best friends, thank you for asking about him. Friday was not good at all and yesterday was transition day but this morning he came to the kitchen and *stood* to *eat* all of his breakfast. Same for supper. Standing on a good day is difficult, let alone post-proc stupor, but he's doing so much better than Friday. I think he's on the mend, today brought another tail wag Thanks for the good vibes!!
  12. Top and bottom views are both beautiful! Congratulations to all of you!!
  13. Buffalo Chikkin has been right next to him but I know Aiden is far from right as he hasn’t yet paid it any mind. Or, he knows it’s had a bath
  14. It's been quite some time since I've had a dog who needed this type of meal service and extra lovins. Thank you Cousin Sweep for suggesting oatmeal. A wee bit of that worked this morning and must have been the jumpstart - when I got home from errands (read: shopping for Aiden) our patient was standing and gave me some low tail swishes I could have burst! He's had a bit of minced rotisserie chikken, a bit more oatmeal with a topping of scrampled eggs, and a dollop of low salt cottage cheese on the side (with meds snuck in ). Thank you all for the nom suggestions and good healing thoughts
  15. There was something wrong with my computer screen earlier and I couldn't see to type My deepest sympathies to you on the loss of your Paddy. Those photos are priceless, as are the memories you created together. Nadine, I'm so sorry What a great name, Zippy Mullane! Godspeed Paddy. The Mayhem was waiting to welcome you, I am sure of it.
  16. Loopy Aiden checking in on cousin Sweep this morning
  17. Thanks for checking in on Aiden this morning. It was a bit of a rough night until he slept. He's turned down all noms but did take a particular canned food this morning which got his meds into him. Today will be a quiet, transition day as he becomes less wobbly and more himself. His doc called late last night with the report - it was five toofers that were pulled - two were ankylosed and causing the weird tongue issue, ugh. So while I really hated to put him through another proc, this was a good call. Annie Oooh M chose a spot on the floor between Aiden's nest and mine on the couch - channeling Aiden's BFF angel Paddy?
