5-course meals for my GuyGuy

He is of course, enjoying my undivided attention.His eyes are covered because he cannot see very well and is blinded by bright lights. He does not have PRA.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…because he’s worth it.     It takes about 15 to 20 minutes for GuyGuy to eat.

It’s a 5-course meal, spoon fed to direct him to eating kibble and…the end of a chicken bone, then white chicken meat, then some boiled herring, then some oven cooked herring, then some chicken liver ( a very very small amount) and back to adding chicken. He walks away, goes to drink, goes outside ( for obvious reasons) comes back and stretches his stomach while eating…it’s no easy feat and I just deal with it for as long as necessary. Twice a day or x3 depending….but he is ok, and happy and has gained weight, as he has gone from just over 20k in May to 23.4.

He is taking medication and homeopathy and whatever cookies and anything he likes. He has chronic bouts where he will begin to throw up and then onto more medication, every 4/5 weeks and right now I am hoping that then homeopathy we started 2 weeks ago is going to prevent him from having an issue or at least that he can feel ok longer. It’s been 5 weeks and he is feeling a bit under the weather right now.So, we take each day as it comes.

With elderly dogs that is the only way to go. Make them happy, so you can well imagine that for 2018, if all goes well I will have time to continue helping him and enjoy the others who need the same attention.

People need to get angry about what some are doing to the breed Barbet. Only then…

When an allmighty self acclaimed “expert” dictates what can happen or not in the barbet world, it’s time to say “stop“. A bimbo does not decide about a breed and what it looks like, nor does her sidekick.

Good job in Switzerland

This was not a test for fun…but the real thing: blood tracking to find  a wounded deer..and she found it. Fabulous nose she has and how proud she was next to the poor old chap who had a broken leg. She is a dazughter of Froggy and Vennie from 2015.

Sad news.

Cooper de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre has passed on. He was ill for only a few days and the vet could not help him as he may have had a tumor.

Picture was taken after he came back from the vet last weekend.

He is the first of that litter to have gone.  He fathered one litter of pups in Sweden where he lived. He was just over 10.He will be sorely missed by his owners. It’s a sad page to turn..
