    Ha, I'm sure I would have pushed, punted, shoved the dog off the bed too. He HATED that dog after 'The Licking'

    I saw this recently. And one time she lost track of the dog for 10 min? She went feral, cried running up and down the street in a panic. She was truely terrified.

    Makes you wonder, WTF is really going on in your life?
    That someones emotional stability revolves around being in constant contact with a scrawny little dog.
    One word: neonate ...... or neotenous if you prefer.

    Last night Gunther got rice and pumpkin mixed in with an 80/20 mix of old & new food. Shit was a little firmer this morning (all praise baby jeezuz) so that will be the drill for the rest of the week as I transition him to the new food. God I hope this works.

    Awaiting updates; there are some good Lamb & rice kibble diets out there e.g. Nutri Source

    Don't mind me, I know nothing of that particular flavor. But most Purina pet food is made in China, in factories that for all we know make cement or poison in the other half. There was one year where there were 17 SEPARATE RECALLS of Purina.

    My mutt has most people convinced that he's a noble beast (and in many ways he is), but he has one incredibly disgusting habit: he loves to eat human shit (exclusively, he has no interest in animal shit). Given that we live in the failing municipal experiment of Portland Oregon, he has more chances to indulge in his favorite snack than you might guess.

    A few years ago my wife had him at work and he ate some shit while being walked around the neighborhood, then doubled down by throwing it up under her desk. I mean, better her office than my office, but fuck a whole lotta that.

    Probably - he's a shelter dog so we don't know for sure, but we're guessing boxer / lab / pit. He definitely eats like a lab - to see him eat, you'd think he's starving to death.

    Thanks, I stand corrected. Dunno about 2019 (doubtful) but Purina did used to use wheat gluten from China. It had melamine in it that accidentally killed pets.

    48 hours or so later, Gunther is doing good. Appetite is back and the poo situation is firming up. I hope what I am now feeding him is adequate, as the designer Italian kibble I was feeding him that looked so good in reviews just does not work for him. His sister the wacky Malamute can eat anything, him not really. While the Purina is not in the same quality or price league as the Farmina N&D Prime Lamb, it seems to agree with him and at this point, that is good enough for now.

    Our girl doesn't eat the feces (at least we haven't caught her), but she loves to disguise her scent with whatever prey or other suitable smelly goo she finds. More than once she has run into the woods at the side of the trail and returned with head held high and something absolutely foul dripping from her jowls and mane. Sometimes it is unmistakably human feces. She gets so insulted when we take the hose to her to try and rinse the worst off.

    We have two boxers, 4 and 2. Piper, the white boxer is very mellow and timid. Gracie, the Euro-boxer is still a wild child. They get up at night and go out to do their business and roam in the woods behind the house. I leave the back door cracked so they can come in, then I go shut the door.

    This summer, in August, they went out. Heard them clumping through the house about 4:00 am whereupon the jumped up on the bed. Both had found a perfume kitten. Gracie must have been about 12" away from the discharge with her mouth open.

    Up and Dawn baths at 4:00 were not fun. Multiple baths since then.

    Gracie still stinks like a skunk three months later. We have washed her with all the remedies, and it just doesn't work. And it's in her breath. I assume it made its way into her lungs. Of course, she doesn't care as she proceeds to attack and lick you.
    In order to properly convert this thread to a polyasshat thread to more fully enrage the liberal left frequenting here...... (insert latest democratic blunder of your choice).

    ^I had a dog that got skunked 7 times. She loved that smell I guess. My wife figured it out, she would have microfiber rags and baking soda. She'd sprinkle the baking soda on the dog because that would soak up the oil and then wipe it off with the microfiber cloth. Worked pretty well. Giving them a bath and using soap just pushes the oil into the dogs skin.

    Wow, it has been a few weeks now. I am happy to report my big guy is much better. The transition to the new food was the ticket (and way cheaper too) and it is painfully obvious to the family we can not give him even the smallest piece of protein from our plate or he will have a shit fit. He is bummed about that, but we are all better off sticking to that rule. Thanks for the suggestions guys, as that last few months were really wearing me down. Hopefully Gunther is good for a few years before I have to do another food change.

    There is a Purina dog food factory that sits at the intersection of Route 70 and York Street in Denver.
