Well... we had a problem with the satin balls...

They got stuck in Per's little mustache and beard... and before I knew it, had dried. Evidently the mixture of peanut butter/raw meat/oats/egg creates an edible cement, seeing as I could not soak it out of his hair.

P and I got out TheFiance's braaaand spankin' new scissors and we hacked away. I tried to keep it symmetrical and cute, however, he was left with pretty much just a goatee. And that looked not good at all. So I cut the rest off. I have to say, though... his face looks decent considering a) I did it... and b) I did it with scissors.

Pictures of proof. Sad sad proof.

Now he looks like... something I can't put my finger on. All fuzzy with a clean face... I swear I had a toy like this or something as a child. Who knows. Oh... and sorry for the crummy pictures, I was taking them with my phone as everything was happening (as to keep TheFiance in the loop)... and for some reason, blackberry's don't take very great pictures.

haha, he looks like a little angora goat kid! hehehehe. It won't ruin anything, don't worry. And a groomer can give him a full poodle face easily enough by taking the rest off!!

The short face is growing on me, he looks like a little sloth/dog mix, lol!

(Or maybe this little guy named Fizzgig from The Dark Crystal... my brother and I LOVED that movie when we were little... even though it was made in '82 and we weren't born until '85 and '87!)

TheFiance is in for a surprise... however, it was TheFiance who wanted the little munchkin to have a poodle face with his fluffy body. Interestingly enough.

I think he looks adorable! But then, I love the clean face on a poodle...lol. I am sure a groomer can make him look real snazzy for you!

Yeah, I made and feed satin balls... of course, my guys already have shaved faces so no problem with that... but I can say that they are a densely packed item and sticky, I can see how that would happen in a face with a longer coat!

I actually hand feed the satin balls though when I feed it. I pull chunks off the ball and feed it to them as I didn't want them getting it all over their coat trying to pull it apart themselves. Not sure if you did this also or just gave the dog the ball and let him enjoy. They are sticky, but the dogs sure do LOVE them. :)

Can you tell Paris that please? She liked them ok for the first day or so, but then didn't care for them at all and would only take a bit if I insisted she should, she'd then drop it and look at me like "do I HAVE to eat that stuff!?" *sigh*

Poor guy, hope he liked them. I have seen different recipes for these. Anyone have one they prefer to another?

Actually, three of my dogs love them, but Grace.... well, let's just say Grace is finicky. She is my problem eater. Sometimes she eats them fine, other times she takes a piece then does just like yours, she drops it and looks at me like "got anything better to offer me?" I think it is the bran flakes in it that bothers her. She LOVES all raw meats and fish, loves eggs, loves cheese, even likes cooked oatmeal, never refuses any of them... but the Satin Balls she has a bit of a problem with so I think it is the bran flakes. When I make another batch, I am going to make them sans bran flakes... maybe extra oatmeal instead. Jade, Ivy and Chantel gobble them up, though, but then, they gobble whatever food they are offered...lol. Oh, except chicken liver... I was not surprised when Grace took the chicken liver and promptly spit it out and looked at me like I was poisoning her, but was surprised that Ivy and Jade (who both LOVE to eat) absolutely refuse to eat it... in fact, Jade and Grace will not eat any of the chicken gizzards and Ivy will only eat the heart. Chantel, on the other hand, loves all of it!

He looks so sweet, Reminds me of a lemur. I am really enjoying the pictures.
LOL! That's what he looks like, you're right! TheFiance and I have been trying to figure out what he looks like, and that's it!
