Here are my two favourite boys chilling out – the way Watson is with his Dad just melts my heart, but then pretty much everything he does melts my heart lol.
You can see from the photo that the silver in his coat is getting more noticeable and he also has two little cheeky silver bum cheeks bless him. I still have hope that he will remain mostly chocolate, but I’d love him if he was pink & green of course. Alas, his itching has come back with a vengeance and we have no idea why. I could literally cry every time I see him pulling at his paws, usually at 5am. The christmas socks work really well though and we do have the drugs when its really bad. Our next specialist appointment is in January and that will be another lot of tests and potentially immunotherapy.
His bum has been doing ok. Not brilliant, but not awful. I’ve never had so many conversations about poo in all my life! He is still on Royal Canin Medium Junior, and the vet told us that although it specifies that it is only up to 12 months, he can stay on it permanently as long as we watch his weight – puppy food is more fatty than adult food.
I ordered about 8 samples of different dog foods, and do you know he wouldn’t touch any of them. I know I know, a lot of you will want me to “force him” to eat it, i.e. leave him with no food and when he is hungry enough he’ll eat it, but I’m determined that he’ll enjoy his food. If he goes off his RC Puppy food, we’ll have to take that route anyway, but for now I’ve still got a few other foods to try. Next on the list is Lily’s kitchen venison – he won’t eat the chicken one, but I know he loves Venison. Wish me luck!
