    His coat feels softer to me. And maybe it's just me but he seems to have a little more bounce in his step! He even sleeps better. He used to wake me up about once a night...wanting to go outside or whining but now he is sound asleep all night just snoring away. I really think this new diet is doing him some good!

    i dont feed raw but i am enjoying your story of how yours is doing. kudos to you for doing it. im interested but just cant seem to do it. if i did it would probably be prepackaged raw. but i admire people that are doing it. i may end up going the dehydrated food route. awsome and thanks for telling your story here.

    Cowsmom....I didn't know if I could start it and stick with it but I really have to say that it's tons easier than I thought it would be. It seems that doing it the prey model way just lets your dog do what nature intended dogs to do. It's fun for me too because I am a bargain hunter so it's a challenge to see what kinds of meat I can get and see if I can make the price better than kibble (which can be done!). I am starting to fill our basement freezer with backstock for when we branch out beyond chicken. Yay! I bet you could do it!

    Just in case anybody didn't see my thread about raw eggs and is following this one....Tank had his first raw egg. I just handed it to him (outside of course!) and he dropped it on the pavement so it cracked a little. He started licking the egg and rolled it all around the patio. Then he took a big chomp and ate it shell and all!

    I am so confused I guess I really need to read up on the raw diet but I didn't think it was okay to eat chicken bones?

    melanieian...I didn't think so either when I started this and had to ask about it. Turns out that bones (chicken and other) are okay as long as they aren't cooked and aren't bones that are weight bearing bones of large animals (cause they can break teeth as they are meant to support the weight of large animals)

    This is a picture of Tank eating his raw chicken quarter. I have found that feeding him outside works best because he likes to take the meat out of the bowl and chew on it in a location of his choosing. And since we have no snow on the ground, he can still see what he's doing/eating. Then he comes back inside and plunks himself back on the couch!

    You're so lucky you can feed Tank outside. So much more easier and less clean-up I presume. My guys eat in an x-pen enclosure. The younger one cleans up after himself pretty well, but the older and newer to raw one is a little messier. The younger one tends to be sent it to clean up. lol.

    Chicken and many other types of bones are fine as long as they are uncooked. Cooking them will make them brittle and splinter easily.

    @savemejeebus we have had an unusually mild winter this year. Hardly any snow...next winter I may have to revamp the eating outdoors plan. It is much less messy with them eating outside though.
