    Default Does Your Bully....

    Does your bully ever leave extra kibbles in his/her dish after having breakfast/lunch/dinner? And then come snack on them later? I've been noticing Tank doing this lately and find it very odd. I almost think he does it on purpose so he has something to snack on. We feed him three times a day but apparently that's not enough for him (in his mind) I guess...

    lol well that is almost free feeding really. When we first got Cutty he didnt eat hardly at all (change of scenery and all) so we left the food down for him. (Felt bad picking it up when he hadnt eaten) He ended up just eating when he wanted etc which actually was very nice way to feed all around. Then when we switched to fromm he couldnt NOT eat it all so we had to go to a schedule. Now I have heard of a few bullies aspirating on their food when left alone so I am thankful to not free feed now.

    My Usko was always a very picky eater until recently. He is almost two years old now. He was on kibble for the first 7 months of his life and hated it. He eats raw now and just for the last month he's had an appetite like never before. He still doesn't eat everything I offer, but it's a massive improvement. Sometimes he doesn't eat all atonce, but goes back for the rest later.

    We feed Dublin twice a day and she usually eats almost all her food. If she does leave anything she won't eat it later. Picky, picky

    Frank actually does this from time to time, but I think that it is because something interrupts him in the middle of eating (such as the UPS guy delivering a package, or he hears the kids next door going to school, or something moves in his line of vision,etc) and then he forgets he doesn't finish. It is funny when it happens because later he will walk by his bowl and get so excited that there are stray kibble still in there.

    Zoey never leaves even a crumb in her bowl. She even licks it for a few minutes to make sure she got every single thing!

    Bacon gets distracted when eating too and will forget, if we remind him it's dinner time he will go back and finish up. The mornings are a totally different story. He takes pride in doing guard duty while Jen is taking a shower. He sits at attention outside the shower making sure nobody messes with Mom. If this coincides with breakfast time he will not eat his breakfast, we leave it for him but once he is alone he will not eat either. So there have been many days when I get home from work, he still has a half bowl of kibble in his day pen, when he gets back inside from doing his business he will go over and finish up because he has company again.

    this sounds just like Tank! Okay I'm glad he's not the only one that does this. I think he get's distracted as well. Especially if he eats when I do... then he'll never finish. He'll gobble down a few and then come to me and give me the look for some of my food

    Otis leaves 2 pieces. Always 2 pieces, always stuck up on the side of the bowl. I don't know why. Don't know how. I just know that he does.
    Abby even licks the sides of the bowl clean in case she missed something.

    For me, her name was Abby
