A Pleasant Surprise!

This morning mama decided to weigh us. Now Blaze is NOT a fan of the scale, he grumbles and gets all fussy. Now me (Lucy) I tolerate the shiny thing that makes mama crazy with either happy or sad faces. Diego he doesn’t seem to mind one way or the other. 

Today’s numbers 🙂

Blaze 34 down a total of 1.8 pounds!

Lucy  30 down a total of 2.4 pounds! 

Diego he’s about the same. But he says he is happy with his figure! 

Mama says it is all because switched to a raw diet about 2 or 3 months ago and our portions are strictly measured. Same with our treats, see our brother Blaze has allergies, they make him scratch and lick his feet constantly. Mama says she has been trying for a very long time to find something that will help him not to lick. She says that she has tried expensive dog foods, even ones that don’t have certain grains, but nothing seemed to work. 

Blaze has had to have antibiotics for his ears because he he scratches them so bad that he makes noises. Then when he isn’t doing that, he is licking his feet constantly. Poor guy, to know that mama has stayed dedicated to finding us foods that will keep us healthy and free of chemicals and pesticides, only goes to show what a loving owner will do for you. 

Diego has been with our pack for 2 weeks now and he just started licking raw food this week. Now he just eats like the rest of us.  I loved it right from the start, I’ve enjoyed Elk, Moose, Bison, Lamb, Salmon, Chicken, Duck, Turkey to name some of the yummy foods we have had. 

Blaze can’t have any poultry at all, and mama says it was way easier to figure out than by having him eat kibble. He also seems to have a lot more energy!!

So if any of your owners are looking for tips on where to start and the best source of information, I have a few places for you to check out.  Below is a list of links that helped me, I gathered them from my friends at Raw Pet on Facebook.
