    Default Inca - Alias Gobbledy Guts!

    As some of you may remember, Inca suffered from gastroenteritis a short while after arriving, and although she recovered fairly quickly it has still been a long haul getting her over her 'lack of appetite' stage.

    About 2 days ago the snap occured, and after days of some really tough love (you know what I mean) she realised that's all she was getting and hasn't bloody stopped since!!!

    She has discovered ways to let me know she's hungry - AGAIN. Lol.
    She will keep stroking the fridge door with her paw as she knows where the meat is, and today several times has gone outside with me and started licking the floor of the back deck then immediately sitting down next to her water bowl and looking up at me.

    It is HILARIOUS! Nothing to make one feel good like a puppy with a healthy appetite and a full tummy.

    What funny antics do other ppl's dogs do when they want a feed?

    Nothing that entertaining here I'm afraid. The usual stand and look pitifully through the back door thing, with a bit of grumbling if no one pays attention.

    We need some pics of Inca stroking the fridge. I can imagine a Homer Simpson-esque voice over, something like "Mmmmm, fridge...."

    Grunt, grunt, grunt, GRunt, GRunt, GRUnt, GRUnt, GRUNt, GRUNt, GRUNT, Snort, Grunt, Snort, Snuffle bowl, Snort, GRUNT

    Happens between 6 and 8pm and 5-7am every day. Gets louder and louder, and funnier and funnier Oh, then there's the hopeful, excited puppy wiggle when I go and pick up his bowl that is accompanied by a chorus of loud grunts.

    Ha ha. Funny dogs. PMSL@Batty though!

    Natty, will definately try to get some snaps of her at that time. The paw thing seems to be a natural characteristic though. We have noticed that when someone visits, the first thing she does once they say hello is sit on her haunches, lift her body up, both paws out and do this kind of bear hug thing. Literally. She doesn't jump on ppl, just hugs their legs for a couple of seconds, sits back down on the ground then offers her paw in the same scraping motion (as the fridge) for ppl to hold or shake.

    Didn't teach, she just does it. Very endearing actually.

    I'll try to get a recording of it this evening. It's the funniest thing in the world to listen to, and he gets more and more earnest about it the longer he has to wait! I'm just glad he doesn't bark or whine for it.

    He grunts when he wants other things too, but definitely not as loud as breakfast or dinner time.

    Inca sounds so cute with the bear hugs! Photos are a must

    Will do. When she does it it is precious, so would like to have photos to look back on.

    My dogs never seemed too fussed about eating...it was more like...oh god do I have to!!!........that was until I started feeding raw chicken necks...carcasses...meat/salmon/liver etc.

    Ruby is the funniest....she actually works herself into a state of shaking when I am preparing food for them. She runs to the kitchen...then to crate...then jumps on the chair....shaking like a washing machine on spin cycle. It is cute, but I don't think the shaking is all that healthy for her really.

    So, from that comment I take it you are feeling really happy about changing to a completely raw food diet? Have been meaning to ask!
