    Bertie is real bad about inhaling her food. I used to free feed and it worked fine until Bertie went to the vet and had all of her surgeries. She had the cherry eyes, soft pallet reduction, stenotic nares and spayed. When she came home she acted like she couldn't get enough food or she was starving. I got her a slow feeder bowl and that wasn't worth buying. She won't eat out of plastic and the stainless steel one just had a big trough around the outside part of the bowl and a big bump in the middle. I got rid of it and I bought an Omega Portion Control Ball. It is made out of glazed porcelan and it helped somewhat...so now I have two of the Omega Balls...a small one and a large one. They are both in her bowl...they slowed her down a little bit, but she can still eat pretty fast.

    Yep all of mine act like they are starving. I think it may be because we schedule feed rather than free feed. So they are already thinking about it and starving by the time it hits their bowls!

    Gracie woofs down her breakfast because she gets yogurt mixed into it and everyone knows that plain yogurt is the bestest thing ever. Takes her about 1.5 minutes. Supper is more casual and is sometimes eaten in courses.... its still Fromm Beef Frittata but no yogurt. Goofy Princess!!!

    @Angelgirl: I'm surprised she eats her if she gets pumpkin. I thought that was one way to detour them from doing this. Maybe I'm remembering wrong.

    @mammyglicks: I never switched to once a day feeding. I've always fed twice a day. Back a while ago when I was having trouble with Ida in her crate at night, I considered feeding only in the morning, just twice the amount. But I posted here and everyone seemed to think Bullies need to eat twice a day, so I continued to do that.

    Yup! I swear she doesnt chew and then when she is done she always lets out a huge burp! Definately not lady-like!

    @Gertie's Mom she's only eaten it once that I know of so maybe it was just a fluke. We keep her in her puppy corral in the mornings when we go to work and there was only evidence that she once but it was mysteriously gone.

    no poo eater here...atleast not yet. lol

    Bullet does scarf down his food. he has a slow feeder bowl that he has learned to tip quickly (even though its large and somewhat heavy). the vet suggested throwing in several pieces of Ol' Roy bites (they look like combos) to slow him a bit and make him stop and chew. i don't think it phases him as he chews those pieces and gulps down the rest. i keep hoping he will calm down while eating...someday.

    Gertie and Ida eat like they're in a race, and it never bothers them at all. I'd think they'd have bad indigestion, but they usually don't even burp afterwards. So, guess I won't worry about it?
    @Momma2Bullet: What do you feed Bullet?
