Stomach like iron

We used to have food delivered for Harvey from Kevin, the Oscar man. This afternoon I phoned him to ask him to start calling again.

He said, 'We recommend that you change foods gradually, so that, for about 5 days, you mix what he's having now with our food so that he gets used to it. Occasionally a change of food will affect the dog's stomach.'
I said, 'He's sitting in front of me eating one of those scritchy things that you use in the shower. On the floor are the remains of the lager can he ate. Across the room I can see the remaining half of the chair, the bit he hasn't eaten.'
'So you're saying you don't think a change of food will upset him unduly?'
'What do you think?'

You've gotta love that George, don't you?!? I think he was standing waaaaaaaay back in line when the good Lord handed out common sense to dogs! HA! Could he be part billy goat, do you think? ;-P

The George stories have me in stitches today. A friend is trying to get me to share a dog. Of course she has a terror like George, well worse really because she's a bit Wheaton terrier and she does not have the excuse of being a puppy. But I think my friend means we should get a new dog between us.
Hmm, I'll have to think about this.

High fiber diet, eh?

Please don't ever stop writing about George--I try to check in every day just to see what he's been up to.
Isn't it funny about dogs' diets? Our dog turned up his nose at all the dry dog food I gave him, so I had to start buying canned. Yet he likes to raid the cat's litter box! Go figure.

Kris, as I've said before, I think he was probably rummaging in the heavenly rubbish bins at that moment!! Part billy goat? Hm, now thta's a thought! Oh dear, he's eating a wasp.

Oh do, jmb! We can compare horror stories!

High fibre, low fibre, total fibre, anything goes, mdm.

rose, I just wonder if there's anything george won't eat!

LOL! Some dogs have stomachs of iron - our old girl Alice could eat just about anything - but got sick to her stomach if she got too hungry and her stomach was empty for too long.

Diva, on the other hand, has a delicate digestive system. Any little thing can set it off and she gets the runs so we have to be careful what we feed her. Glad George is the iron stomach type!
