    a lot of work while you are doing the research, after that when one gets on track its easier. For me, I can find all these meats online no problem (at a god price too) - but I am first and foremost for supporting local small/family business and then go out of the state (but stay within USA).

    It doesnt make a mess. If I let him eat on the floor it can be greasy - but thats easy clean up. A towel or an old sheet can work too for the dog to eat on. :-)

    8 am - 8 oz chicken gizzards
    12 pm - 8 oz chicken breast with bone
    4 pm - 7 oz chicken breast without bone
    8 pm - 8 oz chicken breast with bone

    He pooped around 9 am and 7 pm...both times on walks!!!! I hate when he does that! Its a pain picking up slimy poo. On another hand, I did NOT have to clean up the poo from the back yard before hubby cut the grass...yeap, it was almost non existent...ha!

    Btw, Zeus keeps coming back to the kitchen for eating more, more more....lol...he keeps a watchful eye on me going in there

    I had him eat on an old towel. Much easier!

    10 days ago at the vets he was 22lbs, now he gained 2lbs - 24lbs

    YAY!!!! That is GREAT! Keep up the good work .

    I am kind of poop obsessed too. lol. I think all raw feeders are, especially at first when you are trying to figure out the right balance with different foods and transitions and all of that. Is he still loving it?

    omg, he loves it!!! Its never enough it seems. Every time he hears a bag or sees me prepare meat he thinks its his and leans his back on the fridge waiting...lol


    8 am - 8 oz chicken gizzards
    12 pm - 8 oz chicken leg quarter (this proved to be a lot of bone)
    4 pm and 8 pm - 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast split in two meals (to make up for the bone content earlier)

    Pooped twice - morning and late afternoon, very normal. No water intake.

    P.S. I am getting THE worse farts ever...EVER!

    lol....I had a feeling it was the chicken...lol

    Hubby just informed me that he puked last night. I dont know if its the chicken leg quarter or the chicken breast that did that. He did kinda just swallow the breast - like a freakin gator!
