Our boy is almost 13. He’s had some struggles. A couple of years ago he could barely walk across the yard. We treated him with strong pain and arthritis meds and he improved. We’ve since been able to reduce those meds considerably and he’s eating holistic dog food. We strongly believe that the formula in that dog food is responsible for his remarkable improvement. Though the back legs sure don’t work like they used to, he can still manage to get himself up on the porch couch and enjoy a nice warm snooze.
Another thing about Rocket is he loves to eat grass. He’s got a spot by our garage that must grow exactly what he needs and you’ll see him snacking away. He never gets sick and I’m going along with my Mom who always said dogs eat grass because they like it, not because they have anything wrong with them.
Last night as we were heading to bed Doug came across the Christmas cactus on the floor. This was unusual and as he turned the light on to clean it up he came across this.
The dog had eaten part of almost every leaf on the plant! Up came the poinsettia off the floor, and thoughts of a deathly ill dog in the middle of the night took over. Needless to say, he was just fine this morning. So my question for you all is, should we buy him one of these??? TGIF my friends and have a great weekend!
