The unfortunate reality of owning a giant breed dog is that they 1) eat a lot and 2) poop a lot. Gus is no exception. We have a small yard for the dogs to keep them confined while we are away from home during the day, and they are free to run around while we are home, with a couple of acres of house yard, however they do tend to poo in the small dog yard and that can get a bit smelly.
Gus arrived here last April, only 6 weeks old and taken from his mother and litter and everything he knew in the world. Poor wee fella. He was much younger than Taz when she first arrived, and we noticed the difference, he cried at night and when we left for work. The first week he was here, Pete had to go to a course in Brisbane, so I was home alone with the dogs and had my first week at my new...
Just so you know, this post is mostly an excuse to show off some photos of my big Gussy, but I did want to also share some observations about Gus' puppyhood compared to Taz, because so far they have been very different puppies. I have been asked if Taz is helping to get all of Gus' wiggles out, but really I think Taz is still more wiggly than Gus, even though she is 2.5 years old now.
As I've lately been thinking about what I eat and about real food for humans, naturally the next question was how to feed real food to Taz, and what is real food for dogs?
RIP Cheryl (Chez) 2003-2015 Pete's best mate.
Comments will make us too sad. Just hug your dogs for us. And this link about a dog's purpose in life is very sweet. I'll be back next week.
We are not exactly sure when Taz was born, but when we bought her in the first weekend of January 2014, she was 11 weeks old, so counting backwards, that puts her birthday in the second week of October, which means Taz is now one year old, give or take a few days. Happy Birthday Taz! So how did she go at cattle dog training school?
