Harley has been hating his dog food for some time and everytime we take him to someone else’s house he seems to enjoy the other dog’s food. I blame the kindness of strangers.
When we first got Harley I was in the Pet Store and looking at the foods, remarking to the boys about his scratching.
"You’ll want to get lamb & rice formula’s then, since he may be allergic to the wheat!" a helpful dog food marketing person suggested.
Since then we’ve been searching and buying different kinds of lamb & rice… but the strange thing is, he never stopped scratching. Funny how I just accepted this person’s advice and it took me a year to think, "Maybe it’s not working… he’s still scratching." A couple weeks ago I got a conditioner for his skin (Teresa asked the groomer and they said ‘Labs have dry skin.’)… treated him with that for a few days and his scratching is down 500%.
During my errands yesterday morning one of them included a trip to Wal-Mart to buy him new food.
I was driving down the down lane in the parking lot, and this feller moseys out into the middle of the lane, taking a heading that will take him about 30 minutes to cross over. Not a guy, not a man… a feller, and it was a distinct mosey. At first I felt irritation, but this old feller… well, I just hope to make it to that age in order to mosey through a parking lot and if those young whipper snappers have something to say about it, it won’t bother me none.
Hosted a poker game last night… 5 showed up. It was a blast, as usual. I think I was getting a headache from laughing so much. Or my sinuses are starting to act up. Feel a bit congested this morning.
