Okay, if any of you see me out and about and notice that my head is slightly flattened, you'll know why. Lastnight I made salmon for the dogs, yes Alaskan Salmon, yummy right? Well the girls thought so and I already knew that Luke was not going to think so by his absence in the kitchen. I fed the girls and decided to doctor up his meal so he might just eat it. Typically Luke is not a fish eater; he wouldn't do so well in the wild. (Wild poodle...........hmmmm)
Lukes customary routine is to stand in the middle of the kitchen, he waits for Jessie and Tilley to be done. Then and only then will he have a look see as to what might be in his bowl. But on this night he wasn't even coming in the kitchen, not good. If there had been a big slab of raw beef on the counter he'd have been in the kitchen all right. But I don't have raw beef all the time, and it's good to eat a big variety of foods. Just like my two good girls do.
Anyhow, I brought the food down to His Majesty where he was propped upon his thrown and placed the salmon, quinoa, liver biscotti and lots of butter down infront of him. He recoiled his legs and left. Nice! So I proceed to do the airplane routine which worked for a while but there was no way he was eating it out of the bowl. FINE!!!! And I left to go upstairs with his uneaten food.
To my surprise he followed me, wow maybe he wanted to eat the rest. I put it on the ground and ........................................nothing. Nope, he was not eating it but Jessie was waiting as patiently as a pirahna to devour it. I grabbed the bowl and carried it to the safety of the counter. Hmmmmmmmmm; what to put in this bowl? He was not in a fish mood obviously, but he looked like he wanted something. Running out of "real" food options I thought "I'll get some kibble (Orijen) and throw it around, maybe he'll eat that." As soon as I poured the kibble into the bowl Luke's ears went up. What? He was interested in the dogfood? I sat the bowl on the floor and he licked it clean, I added another bit and he ate that as well.
Long story short? He ate two bowls of dry dog food, about a cups worth. Somebody shoot me.
