Thanks for the support....

It's funny how quickly we get attached to animals....

We 'were' going to go on vacation for 10 days next month....not going to happen now...we know we can't leave him alone that soon....

As it is, I can't get off work anyway...we just got another project and it's a fast track job....

Now...the big discussion in our house is on the topic of raw meat...I say it's good to give them raw meat...wife says no....

I've heard that raw meat is good for them....

Don't know about raw meat, but in our house bones are a no-no.
Many, many years ago I worked at a small animal hospital. I remember a beautiful yellow lab pup that died at the clinic. At first it was thought to be Parvo, bit it turned out he had swallowed a rib bone.
Chicken bones and other small bones that splinter are the absolute worst.

Glad to see you rescued him.


We have a cat that that was discovered by a neighbor as a kitten, starving. We think some neighbors put him out when they ran into financial problems and moved away. Needless to say we're all happy now with another addition to the family.

No way I would ever give a dog chicken bones or any other bone that could be swallowed....

With our last dog, I would get a package of beef neck bones....then give him one about every other day...very little meat...but he really enjoyed chewing on them....

I would also check out the 'about to expire' meat section...cheap steak....no bones....take that home and just toss it to him....

Downside....if you got any where near CJ (last dog) while he was eating....he would try to rip your arm off.

I will not allow that with this dog.....we are going to train him to not be aggressive with his food.

You may want to rethink that choke collar for when he's just "hanging out" or he could end up doing just that.

While they are useful for training they can be deadly. I knew someone whose dog was laying on a wood deck. The ring slipped in between the boards and turned... effectively trapping the dog. It panicked and in an effort to free himself, choked to death.

Having had dogs for 50 odd years, I would saw no to the steak and bones idea. I would say no to ANY people food period. This is from experience and personal opinion. Once a dog has had people food it thinks that ALL people food is fair game.

Another NO vote on the choke chain----Next door neighbor lost a dog to one of those---
