    I started a journal too. It is a blog here. If you go to the top of the page and hit blogs, you will see it.

    I found a source of cheap meat. 50 cents a pound for chicken! I'm going raw! But I'm finishing off their current bag of kibbles first.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    I think you may have to have a certain amount of posts before you can start a blog. Not sure what it is though. I would love to follow his progress! A thread would be cool.

    Congratulations! I am sure you will be pleased with the results. If you hit any bumps in the road, just post. There are several here that are more knowledgeable than I am and I am sure they can help you out too. @savemejeebus and @karenben are two that I like to turn to as they are sooooo helpful!

    Zeus had a chicken thigh today. I heard the crunching of the bone, but he hardly ate any of the meat. Should I save it for tomorrow or throw it in the trash?

    Also, I bought some fresh pig ears, some oxtail (but its sliced in smaller pieces), beef leg....do you feed these as a meal or as something to chew on?

    Got 2 cornish hens for 6.99....is it ok for a 3 and a half month old to start working on one?
    I have to say I LOVE these pictures of Zeus...he looks like he is really into what he is doing. lol

    Some time back I asked two of the most knowledgeable experts on Bulldogs that I happen to know. One gave me Pepper. I was curious of a raw food diet for her. They help me quite a bit with anything about Bully's I need or want to know.Both have some 60 years combined in raising and breeding.
    Both of them told me a raw food diet is very detrimental for good health for a Bully. They are even more susceptible to E-coli and other harmful bacteria than humans. When a Bully gets Food poisoning from them its the dehydration that kills them quick. A Bully gets to sick from bad food it is susceptible to what is basically a Stomach Flip.The stomach and gut basically knots up and it is fatal and not at all a pleasant sight to watch a Bully suffer with. Feeding a Bully raw chicken is taking a gamble, chicken can spoil after only being out 15 minutes.
    Beef is only a bit safer but Bully's have a heck of a time digesting it.Both have told me that the only Safe Beef to give a Bully is to boil it and strain it , not even baked or fried beef is advisable. If you feed your Bully beef and you have issues with Gas then you know now one of the reasons. Boiled removes most all the fat from beef and at times I will feed pepper some boiled beef and rice as a special treat. But as shared with me Bullys and beef don't mix and that it was far better to have my bully on a raw, washed veggie diet along with a good non -wheat dry dog food then to consider a diet that included raw meat.
