    heh heh

    So just when things were "firming up" as it were, what do I go and do? Get a GIANT BAG of Nature's Variety Instinct Salmon Meal formula - you know, the one that I ordered in the first place but never got (insert here)? Confused yet? I sure am. I have to keep looking at the bag to know what the hell I bought. Bottom line: we dropped the "Praire" with this bag.

    So....film at 11. Or at least another update....


    Funny story, I think I was at the same meeting..... anonymous of course

    Great News! Now I don't have to travel so far to get the NVI Limited Ingredient Lamb Meal. Good news for PETCO. I sure hope they start stocking TOTW too . . . !

    Well, it's still dark outside and I forgot to grab my "Poop Patrol Flashlight" on my way out the door - but there is GOOD NEWS (I think) in Mukilteo Bully Land!
    Here's why I think that: This morning when I was standing sentry at my usual post, smoking my first Marlburo Menthol of the day (I know. Shut up.), I heard the distinct and joyful sound of Bea's grunting through the darkness of the backyard. A joyful noise! I haven't heard her patented 'poo grunt' in a good, long time my friends! Of course, I will update when the sunlight beams down on what I hope to be glorious, firm, perfect little piles of NVI Salmon produced poo. OK. Maybe not sunlight. This is Washington. But you know what I mean.

    So yesterday, the whole fam damily is over here for dinner (my nephew is headed to Afganistan; he's in the Marines) and Bo breaks out in little hives - just under his armpits. So I'm a seasoned hive gal now. I know what to do. I pop two Benedryl into a piece of cheese and wait for his sleepy butt to stop obsessively chasing my sister's boxer around, biting the back of her legs. Not to be. It seemed as if the Benedryl made him even MORE hyper! He was drooling like crazy; I even discovered puddles in the crate where he was having a "Time Out" to give the Boxer a break. (For her part, she was actually awesome. I'd have turned around and chomped him but all she did is run and drool - poor baby) Everyone left. Doggie dinner as usual. Bedtime.

    This morning, as we speak, he's having the time of his life over there, eating the remaining chunks of dinner he barfed up at some point during the night. (Most of it landed outside the crate) He never said a word! Poor baby!

    So I guess the lesson there is: 1) Dogs clean up their own barf, thank gawd and 2) Benedryl + the excitement of a new playmate + a houseful of relatives don't mix. The good news: The hives under his pits? All gone.

    RANDOM.

    Oh they're firm now. Fabulously so. But Bea is scratching and Bo got another benedryl this morning because he's got "wiggly back skin"; the sure sign of hive onset.

    I don't think the NVI Salmon is working. *sigh* They've had it four times; two breakfasts and two dinners. Am I jumping the gun? Should I give it another couple of feedings or take that 80 dollar bag back for something else? This time, I was smart and saved the packaging! (I'm a quick learner see...) I still have a GIANT bag of NVI Lamb and brown rice in there too - but that's the one causing the soupy poops....I'm running out of space in the laundry room for all the bags of dog food in there.....ack!

    @Vicaroo1000. I would give it a little bit more, it could be seasonal allergies and not the food. Vegas has been on NVI for a year and a half and I still battle NON-STOP enviormental allergies. BUT his is like rocks and has been since we started the Salmon NVI, the chicken one gave him the 's.

    Seriously you paid $80 for the bag?? I pay 65.00 including tax at our local feed store that orders mine in for me. The bag last around 6 weeks though so I basically pay 10.00 a week to feed him (this is how I had to break it down to Joe who about when he seen how much his food cost, lol) Look up Petflow on this site, they deliver and it will be cheaper if you decide to stay on the NVI Salmon.

    Far less than my nasty habit of smoking, as I seen in one of your post that you do too!!

    Even though I had problems with Instinct, I would say give it more time. Ruckus still had red around his face too. I would have went longer than I did to see if it cleared up, but we had digestive problems.
