They Have All Lost Their Minds!

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:26 am by Karma

I’m going to gripe tonight.  I’ll keep it short.


Brendol has not been eating since Friday unless I hand feed her.  Ok, I can do that.  I’m worried, but I can do that.

Today, she starts refusing her K9 Immunity and Rimadyl.  May not sound weird, but for her that’s weird.  She thinks they are treats and usually swallows them faster than you can hand them to her.

So, not wanting to fight over dinner again tonight, I put canned food on her bowl of kibble and this time she ate great.  Not only that, but Aissa didn’t eat much of hers, so next thing I know, Brendol is at Aissa’s bowl eating Aissa’s dry kibble too.  Lovely.

Aissa, has a platellar luxation that acts up.  She’s been limping since Friday night.  Ok, we’ve been through this.  Assume the protocol.

Adelaide, my food hog.  Goes to daycare today and does not eat her breakfast.  Weird.  Daycare says she threw up some plastic pieces that were pink and orange.  Hmmm, doesn’t match description of any of her toys and I have roamed the house looking for remnants of something that may have fallen victim to the puppy.  No such luck.  Whatever she ate, she ate it all.

Next, Adelaide now has a new quirk.  She gets crated at supper time so that Brendol and Aissa can eat their food without her pushing them out of the way.  She just eats her supper in her crate and when they are done, she gets let out.  Now… for the last four or five days, she will eat a little of her dinner and then just sit there.  No problem, we can handle that.  Brendol and Aissa finish their supper, I go open her crate up.  THEN she stays in her crate and finishes her supper.  Weird.

Tonight, Adelaide actually did NOT finish her dinner.  She just hung out near her crate so that nobody else could have it either.  That was odd.  Next thing I know, Aissa, who did not eat much tonight of her own, decides she wants Adelaide’s and pushed Addy out of the way to finish up Addy’s.  Adelaide was not amused.  But I called Addy over to Aissa’s bowl and let Addy have some of hers for fair play.  You should have seen Aissa’s face.  She was like…wha what?  I told her, see how you like someone eating your food?  That seemed to resonate (ok, maybe my Dr. Doolittle communication isn’t as good as I think it is, but I try).

That is the craziness that has been going on around here!  I am losing my mind.  (maybe this wasn’t as short as I thought)

    OMD! I knlw iit’s not funny to you right now, but it’s a hilarious read:-) 🙂
    I reqd it twice before I started respnding and it was even funier the second time!
    You painted a great visual!!

    Aren’t the dynamics of the pack amazing and complex? You’ve GOT to film tnis andpost it! It may be long but I for, one, will get out the popcorn and watch it

    I agree with Michelle, at least Brendol’s eating! It’s almost like they’re planning all this whie you’re out of the room. Apparently, they’re still ticked that yo went away a few days! And ticked that yiu’re handfeeding Bredol!

    Loved this post! Thanks for sharing the fun!

    You are doing a GREAT job of keeping your sense of hu or through all this:-)

    Lots of love,

    Sam had a bout of bleeding ulcers a couple of weeks ago (anything consumed came out one end or the other–blood-tinged, plus he was puking blood balls); Momo had a UTI; Maxxie ate some weird plant that made her throw up green; Sadie, not to be outdone, ate something that led to intense vomiting every time she ate…but also made her hoover everything edible (and not) in sight. I feel your pain. Some days, you are not sure whether you are glad they are eating or not :p (well, no…you always want them eating, but…you know what I mean…)

    Ah yes!! Musical bowls!! We have a little bit of that at this house too. At least everyone is eating even if it’s everyone else’s food!!!! Maybe if you put their food in the other dog’s bowl they would eat their own food??

    Hang in there.
