8) I know I am ridiculous, but I don't want to focus on the puking/not eating. :giggle: Yet, I post here and tell everyone.

Okay...today I call the Vet and tell him all is good. I have waited because sometimes THAT jinx' it. :neener:

No, dogs are not allowed on the furniture. Unless they have stomach aches. Rather obscene view...

If he is not puking, let him sleep wherever he wants. :D

We have had our ups and downs these past few weeks. Playing with meds and when to give them and how much dosage works. Last Sat. went to Vet for a checkup and he is still holding his weight at 71 pounds.

The good news is that for the past 3 days he HATES Mighty Dog. He now LOVES Wellness, dry (no grain formula) and canned Wellness, beef or turkey/chix liver only. I add some beef gravy (human type) and he eats. No puking. :)

He has also become rather odd in that he will only eat on the second step of the stairs, using my pyrex glass bowl, with a paper towel under it. :dance:

How do I know all this works? Because I basically dance and stand on my head to find what works. I buy a can of this and that, try different dishes, feed him in different spots.....you name it. :rolleyes2:

Funny you should mention that, Diana. :giggle: I make sure the "feeding environment" is calm. He plays off of anyone's emotions (dog or human) so I play smooth jazz at mealtime. I prefer Dave Koz, so I am assuming so does he.

But by now, you all "know" my personality when it comes to my dogs, so you probably aren't laughing. Right? :wink:

I know he doesn't look skinny to MOST people :wink: but I can feel and see his ribs. Yes, my dogs are usually chubba's. :dance: The good news, on this rollercoaster ride, is that he is eating and not puking. While he likes Wellness canned, I tried BISON by Natural Balance, and I seemed to have hit gold. This week, at least.
