Yesterday, Pepper ate everything put in front of her with huge enthusiasm. Today she said “no thank you” and walked away. However, if Monster was taking an interest and wanting her food too, then she would pick away. She is definitely a grazer. But if Pepper doesn’t eat, I worry. I gave her some probiotic paste and have spent the day trying to get any calorie down her. Tomorrow is another day, I tell myself on the food front.
I read that if your puppy is bouncing around and looking perfectly healthy, then she is probably ok.
Monster will confirm that Pepper has done nothing but bounce all day, mostly at him.
I do love it when they are together – I get a warm fuzzy feeling (probably from standing in a little pee puddle then!)
Of course we are all now Pepper’s devoted slaves. What else can we be? There is no choice.
I think Monster is the only one in the house she listens to.
He complains a lot (we hear you, Monster!)
Pepper is a very happy puppy who believes the word “no” has nothing to do with her, in any way.
Teddy is her bestest toy.
He has spent most of the day outside with Pepper.
While I was pottering about in the kitchen, I left the backdoor open for Pepper to come and go. Every so often she would whizz in, do a circuit around the kitchen table, and whizz out again.
Monster was outside on nanny-duty.
Pepper came inside eventually to crash in her bed next to the Rayburn. Cooking is not easy. Now to get this eating under control. I am still worried.
