    Default Finn is always HUNGRY!

    Finn has been changing lately; he weighed in at 48 lbs this past Tuesday. He used to weigh in the mid 50's and 57lbs was his highest. Since his illness with the diarrhea and also the hip dysplasia, I've been stricter with the food, cooking his food for him and have also decreased the processed and store-bought snacks I used to give him. I still give him peanut butter, yogurt, frozen berries as special treats however.

    The thing is, he seems to be always searching for something to eat. Right now he's in the kitchen whining (probably smells the meatloaf i just made!). I just gave him some frozen berries, and earlier a small bowl of yogurt and pumpkin. Is he truly hungry or is he just playing with my head b/c more than likely, I will soon get up and give him "a little something"!

    The vet wants him on the light side; she even said, "as in super-model thin" b/c of the hip dysplasia. Maybe it's cuz i've been off work that he thinks he can get more food out of me? I pretty much feed Tate the same as Finn and Tate does not whine for something more to eat like Finn. It's so puzzling!

    Here is a recent picture of him--I think he looks thinner but not too much.

    He looks great to me. Such a handsome boy. I would fill him up with empty snacks. Like green beans, broccoli, carrots - things that won't make him gain weight but will fill him up. Also, rice cakes. I would give one to Tyson before bed so he'd have a snack, but not gain.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    OH, and speaking of... when we cut back Tyson's food to get him to lose weight - he was hungry, whining too, and this is right around the time he ate the socks ... so I would give him something....

    the boys looks good. Green beans it is. It is a low calorie filler and healthy. I also boil kale and carrots mixed with beef boullion for taste, then I top with a tablespoon of greek yogurt.

    thanks guys. What a coincidence that I bought two bags of green beans from Trader Joe's today! Okay, I just got back home from the library and picking Tate up from day camp and the boy is whining again. Going to give him some green beans now...

    Jessica, i like the idea of the rice cakes. I remember you mentioned this before but have never tried them on the boys.

    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Just be sure to get the plain jane, no flavor, etc kind.

    Charlie could eat the *** end out of a rag doll-he's always hungry so much so that he'll wake from a dead sleep just to give you that "Im hungry, I'm up so so give it up" stink eye.

    He's still a pup and Im feeding him three times a day-Acana pork and butternut squash, some boiled turkey, and a little pumpkin with the freeze dried boar snacks from Orijen. But he'll park his backside near my daughters parrot when its downstairs waiting for anything that nasty creature drops. -img_0341-jpg

    @Brian Melton When I had parrots, the dogs were positioned just like yours, waiting for the seeds to drop!!
    "
    “It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"
