    Default Licks the finish off the bowl

    Hi, everyone, does anyone else have a bully that licks the finish off their stainless steel bowl? Lol
    Bulldozer and Blossom will eat all their food, or I should say inhale their food, and then when it's empty, they stay at their bowls and lick, and lick, and lick, until I think they're going to lick the stainless steel finish off the bowls. Then of course they look at me with those puppy dog eyes that say
    " Hey Mom isn't there anymore"?

    Yep. Harlea is the same way and when I go to pick up her bowl she starts sniffing and licking all over again until i have stood back up.

    When mine are finished eating, they go to each others bowls, hoping someone left a crumb or two(NOT). Then they will lick and lick each others dishes, like someone had better food, "how come I didn't have that?!" But, they all had the same.You know, the "grass(food) is always greener on the other side of the fence!" which , in this case is someone else's dish!

    Surprisingly, Dudley doesn't do this. Piglet that he is...I would expect him to be that way, but he usually leaves a few pieces in his bowl!

    chumley used to inhale his food..since I switched to Fromms he eats half..Ive heard people rave about Fromms but in his case its increased his shedding, itching, and caused diarrhea...plus he doesn't really seem to like it..damn!

    @Chumley - Im still trying to find the best fit for Colossus. I know no more white potatoes (gives him yeast spots) so that takes out Fromm Grain free foods.

    Since I switched Colossus to a slow feed bowl he doesnt eat nearly as fast and doesnt lick the finish off the bowl. He just gets done eating looks up at me and says "Please daddy, can I has some mo"

    Tubby won't lick the finish off. Couple months ago we had an issue with him refusing to eat, so any time he ate we would praise him like he just won the Super Bowl! So now the second he's down he runs over to you and leads you to his bowl so he gets his celebration and does the bully butt wiggle

    Both my EB & Boxer do this, and it drives me insane... Especially when I mix the yogurt in w/the kibble!!!

    that was Sheldon but when we changed his food he actually leaves about half a cup in his bowl I guess he is getting full faster then Gigi (MIL's Dog) eats what is left in his bowl and she has the same thing in her bowl but she would rather eat what Sheldon leaves....makes no sense to me.

    She thinks Sheldon has something better! They are so funny.

    She is so silly she won't touch her food unless she is sure there isn't anything in Sheldon's dish or around Sheldon's dish then she will eat out of her dish.
