Firstly, Tate doesn't have as sensitive stomach as I thought. You know how I know? Because I've been feeding him different samples of food, and he's been GREAT with the cold turkey switch. He did great on Nature's Balance duck, and is loving Fromm's duck formula (got their fish, too... he seems to love the fishy stuff). But guess what happened yesterday and the day before while he was eating TOTW fish? Explosion. That's what!

Anyway, he didn't bother to eat his TOTW dinner last night, and it was still here this morning when I woke up. So I know the baby was hungry! I threw it out and gave him the Fromm's and he gobbled that right up. When this bag is gone, we're trying Fromm's fish. And then California Naturals.

Hoping the CalNat works out for him, because I've read lots of good things.

On TQ news... that little brat ATE A BEADED NECKLACE of mine and has been slowly popping a few pink beads up every day. I was REALLY nervous after I found out she had eaten it, because of the string... however... luuuucky me, I found that attached to a bead today. Let's just say... I almost threw up a little. At least now the worrying and the grass eating is over!

In other poodle news, Tate has been allowed to stay out more and more due to the fact that *knock on wood* he hasn't tried to mark in the house, or in my mom's house in a REALLY LONG TIME. Not even my shoes! I'm thrilled, really. Let's hope this isn't temporary.

Yay!

The duck does work, and he is really enjoying it... the woman at the food store in CO actually suggested switching to him to something like rabbit, as the foods with rabbit in them rarely have a chicken filler. A said no on rabbit. :eyeroll: I am getting ready to try him on FROMM's fish to see how he does... and if it goes downhill, then we're going to conclude that he can't have chicken, beef, or fish as the main ingredient.

It's great to finally be able to narrow this stuff down. I am so spoiled in the fact that TQ can eat anything and doesn't even mind the switch from foods. When I first got her, I was 19 (much too young to have a dog on your own, I think) and I wouldn't even think about switching her gradually because I didn't pay attention to when she was almost out. Never a complaint, though. We joke that if she were a person, she would be the one always wanting burgers one night, thai the next, then a nice big plate of indian food... and never gaining a pound or getting sick.

But UGH! I just saw the news that CalNat's brand sold to P&G... so I guess the search for a decent priced dog food that they will both eat is still on!
