Guess who went retrieving in Gans Greek on Thursday?! This dog! I was so happy I couldn't stop running madly in and out of the water. Faiza, however, was less than enthused. She refused to step in the water, although she will run through any puddle, no matter how wide and murky. Whenever I would climb out of the creek with my retrieved stick, she would run over to me worriedly to make sure I was OK...and then I would shake all over her. Sometimes I am a mean uncle:) She was absolutely indignant when I would splatter her with all that cold water!  Heehee! It was glorious!
As a side note, I am doing well on my Primal raw food! Mom mixes it with my Acana and a dash of enzymes et voila! The perfect meal for Spur. For those of you in Columbia, Treats Unleashed is hosting a seminar on raw food for dogs and cats next Tuesday at 6:30 pm. The Primal rep will answer any questions you may have regarding the benefits and safety of feeding raw, as well as how to do it economically. I'm all of 80 lbs, as you know, and while Mom loves me she could not really afford to feed me raw entirely. But I can still reap the benefits of raw with partial feedings! Mom heard this rep speak in STL a few weeks ago and she gave raw a try. I am very happy she did! For more info on Primal, try their website:
Anywho, off to play in the mud some more!  Ta ta for now!


  1. We love paddling in the creek; but we don't like baths! Sounds like you had a great time.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  2. my Mom cooks for her has bad alergies...

  3. Hmm..I'm not fond of getting my paws wet, but it sounds like you had a blast!


  4. I've been on a raw food diet for 3 years and I love it.

  5. Raw food diet is actually 1/2 lb of meat per 30 lb wt of dog. She gets a variety from chicken, turkey, red meat, kidney, organ meat and bone. The packages are cut up in 1/2 lb lots and there are also, paddies with ground bone mixed in. Veggies are incorporated as well. She is doing very well on it and haven't noticed any problems. She gets fed once a day in the morning.
