Puppy walking

An adventure in looking after a puppy until it is old enough to be properly trained as a guide dog for the blind.

Another milestone! Rocky farted today. I didn’t hear it but it sure curled my nose hairs. He’s still not eating a thing except puppy chow (unless he scarfs down something from the street smorgasbord) so I’m not sure why. But it was a first so I thought it deserved a blog entry of its own.

Welcome to my world, Julia.

Meanwhile, I am testing my roommate's theory that Lomax's gas comes from the occasional Beef & Cheese Flavored Snausage....

We had Uma for over 14 years and she passed an average amount of gas, I suppose. Nothing outrageous in quantity but on occasion, eye-watering. We never did think about making a connexion with what she ate. She was a regular vomiter however, and we made an effort to study the problem but again, never made a connexion between bouts of vomiting and anything else.

I don’t think you can pinpoint only one or even a couple of factors for farting in dogs. In that sense, I suppose they are like us! Sometimes we eat some gassy stuff, sometimes we don’t. Rocky is just on such a strict diet that I was surprised about it this morning. And you know, you have to blog “firsts”. Lomax is so beautiful I am sure he is forgiven. :)
