That's Mocha's preferred position and look whenever I'm sitting at my computer; I usually sit there and scratch behind her ears while I'm working but she'll just lay there and gaze up at me.



Not the dreaded typhoid! :grin2::grin2::grin2:
Speaking of food, Mocha's not too crazy about the low copper Rx food, even with a little fish oil sprinkled on top and some green beans. She'll eat it, eventually, but I've seen her take up some of the kibble and spit it back out, then pick it up again. But at least for now, she's eating it.
TN - Ali was on the same type food - dry - they do offer it in a can - wet food - sometimes I would mix in some of the canned food and stir it in with the dry - then she would eat it lots better , Best of luck - we have been there - like you before .

Ealy , quick lunch today , beans will be ready to cut shorty - so everybody have a great day :grin2:

Do I remember right, TN, that low copper dogs can have hard boiled eggs or cottage cheese? Mary Jo would know. Both of my dogs love those....

MC,

Our internal specialist sent me a link which contains foods that can and can't be eaten and eggs and cottage cheese are ok :2smile: Although, cottage cheese has given Mocha the runs in the past.

MC, I'm happy to report back that your suggestion of hard boiled eggs was the ticket! I chopped up half a hard boiled egg and mixed it up good with her kibble and she was on it like white on rice :2smile:

I could probably chop up some cucumber and that would work as well, but eggs are good for them so maybe I'll mix it up, cucumber one meal, eggs the next.

Since she has food allergies, I'm trying to keep it as simple and natural as possible.

Still trying to decide if I should take some vacation time next week or just crate her downstairs so my wife can take her out through the garage for potty...I hate to do that to her but she'll have to be crated eventually, I do have a finite amount of vacation time and she's going to be on a minimal activity/no stairs regimen for a while.

Dogs and hard boiled eggs....

McCoy gets one everyday with one of his meals. He also occasionally gets the yolk if my wife decides to eat only the white of a hardboiled egg. He loves them

The dog can be sound asleep upstairs in his crate. If he hears the sound of an egg cracking in the kitchen he is downstairs and in his "please" sit in a flash.

STJ!

Yeah, my dogs get a hardboiled egg with dinner and a couple of tablespoons of yogurt with breakfast (or cottage cheese if I have some that is going to hit the expiration date. I hardboil them because I can do them a dozen at a time and the dogs have to share them with me--I do give a bite of my egg salad sammiches to the poor dog who has to watch me make it

.

Actually I only have Joey the loaner--sometimes he seems like several dogs. He's abandoned me for several days to go and play show dog. His breeder and I were sharing the joys of trimming and bathing today and that was good for a laugh.

And I discovered something while all of this was going on. We've had endless problems with Joey and my truck (and sometimes with his breeders various vehicles--she's got some truely big ones--a Chev something that huge. But old Toyota Tacomas are small--the new Tacomas are huge by comparison. With the tailgate down Joey could probably step into it. But no--it's become a game for him and a source of irritation for me.

So a week ago I wanted to take him to work with me because I wanted to weigh him. We were at the back of the truck--I had extra special treats and he had launched into his various methods of pretending he couldn't hear me and had no idea what he was supposed to do. And I was late-- and in a fit of temper I not only yelled at him (THIS IS NOT THE WAY TO GET A DOG TO DO ANYTHING--and I don't recommend it) but I gave a healthy snap with the leash.

To my huge surprise he not only jumped in the truck but he didn't do his other smart arze routine which is to jump in and then jump out before I can take the leash off and shut the crate.

And when we went home and I was expecting another diva act--instead he hopped right in. YAY.

So this week I took him again but with the dremel and clippers so I could put him up on one of the lifts so I wasn't standing on my head doing nails and trimming him.

And he chose to act as if he'd never even seen clippers before. I knew he had because he's been in shows and he can't pretend things like that with the dremel because that happens about every 5 or 6 days.

But he was so relieved to get off the lift and away from the deadly clippers that I hardly had time to open the tail gate--I told his breeder about it and we both looked at the dog who seems to be brighter than we are --told her I thought we'd probably been using the wrong technique and all it really needed was to have him so something he really really didn't like at all so the truck became his 'place of peace and safety.

And now I'm going to bed--Joey already went to his bed, taking a cat along with him...who knows.

I hope he never learns how to exhibit Mocha's soulful look--I'll never have a moments peace again...

Me too. It must be a teaser for Ken's next big production.
I have NO idea what happened with this one , LOL Will have to see if I can find it again :grin2:

Boy last night was a treat !!! Kadin and little girl told me they had to go out at the same time - around 1:30 this morning - I let Kadin out first ( mistake ) little girl was lose - she got around me and the smack down was on . What to do ? So I let them burn off some energy - then they would go right back to sleep , Well I could not call off Kadin to come in - I was starting to get a little ticked off - I was so tried and these 2 don't have to get up or they can take a nap today , Then I had a brain storm idea ! I have a Super Soaker laying on the patio table - AND it was full ! I pumped it way up , walked out in the yard and gave them one more chance to nock it off , they didn't so I took a bead on them both and pulled the trigger ! They don't call them Super Soakers for nothing ! I had 2 dobermans headed in opposite directions - they stopped and looked at me - both shaking and shaking - the funning thing - they some way know knew there names and walked right in the back door and to bed !

I liked to never went back to sleep , But Kadin in less in 2 seconds was soring :grin2: God you have to love them :grin2::grin2:

Lily was bad last night. She was outside. It was dark outside. I could hear her doing her woof out back. Opened the door to call her in. The coyotes were extremely close. I tried to call her in and she ran the other way towards the pasture side yard fence and started barking her head off. I stood out there for a good 2 minutes screaming my arse off for her to get her arse in the house. She wouldn't come in.

Came back in the house and told Mister to call his dog in and that the coyotes were too close. Went back to the porch and stood there screaming my head off for her to get back in the house. Then I had to do my I mean business whistle! She came in at the whistle. I can whistle pretty damn loud!

Gee! I sure hope I didn't disturb my neighbors with all the noise I was making last night.

I bet it pissed Hossy off at first because he couldn't put the entire ball in his mouth!

>:)

Tennis balls rarely returned with Axel. Maybe I should have thought of this!

Axel would bring back a tree limb.

Yup he was pissed off and decided to try to skin it instead.
Fun toy but only under supervision.
That fuzzy stuff on the ball was coming off BUT it was just a special moment toy.
He loves it for sure !!

Low Copper Diet For Wilson’s Disease
Eggs are a big part of my Jezebel's diet. I didn't like the RX liver kibble which is why I went to a part kibble part fresh food diet for her. It has not brought her liver numbers down, but we have maintained for 6+ years. RX liver diets are the lowest in copper, but there are some commercial kibbles that are very low. The Annamaet I feed is very low - I had to call the company to get the numbers. Being that kibble is only about 1/2 her diet, I'm ok with the fact that the copper content is a little bit higher than the RX kibble.... the quality IMHO is much higher.

Nice job, yet once again, Cuz!

I can't believe Scotty condoned his part in this.

I've been trying to take pictures of Mister in action and he will stop, turn around with whatever tool he has in his hand and tell me to stop taking pictures.

:frown3:

Tisk, tisk, SP, You must have edited out last part of sentence, which would say:

"...and help me with this project!"
:grin2:



When DW gives critique on jobs, still in progress, I usually respond with:

"Could use some extra help. Don't need another supervisor" which gets me a bunch of grief.... :2surprise:
