What’s a fussy eater? I prefer to call myself a discerning eater! I used to get all excited when I heard the word dinner mentioned and I behaved like a limpit to the person who’d said it – usually Mum. I was taught to sit and wait until they put my bowl of kibble down on the floor and then I dived in and ate every last piece – yum yum!! Well, I didn’t know any better!!
Now that I ‘m getting a bit older and wiser I decided to call mum’s bluff and see if I could get anything better than boring old kibble. It did involve going hungry a few times (she was trying the tough love approach!), but now mum’s caved in and started putting meat, yes, real meat underneath the kibble!! The only problem is I have to eat most of the kibble in order to get to it, doh!
I’ve got mum really confused with this behaviour…….
The problem now though, is that this card came in the mail a few days ago from the vets saying I needed a shot as it was 6 months since my last one. I know she’s going to talk to the vet about my new eating habits at the same time, uh oh, I wonder what he’ll tell her? Will I have to go back to boring old kibble and nothing else? Maybe he’ll say I can have a vegetarian diet, I’m not sure about that, although mum read it can work well for dogs too! Maybe he’ll say I should try a whole food diet like my buddy Atticus? Oh, hold on, maybe he’ll tell her I need a steak or chicken Dinner each night instead? Just like when I was eating out at the restaurants……tee hee…..:)
I always like to think positive!!
