Fox Terrier About Town

Adventures of a Vivaceous Pup in Fancy London

Raw vs. Pellets

The vet stuffed me with a bag full of pet food. The people at the pet shop made me buy a spray can that dispenses some cookie-dough stuff you are meant to put on the hinges of a chewing toy and apparently dogs love this gunk. Dashwood only likes mince, chicken, and goes nuts for cheese. All artificial stuff he just sniffs and leaves behind. Good doggie.

At the next Vet visit he is growing like a piggy for the Christmas market. In the first week he put on 9% of his body weight and continues to go up on the scale. I have a mixture of relief and proudness. I cook for this puppy on a daily basis. I buy raw mince, and divide it into tiny individually wrapped packets, which I freeze, and de-freeze, and the rice steamer, and the goat milk, and…. let’s remember one thing: this is a woman that has survived on Covent Garden soups for a lifetime. And now I am the Martha Stewart of West London puppydom.
