Well folks, I survived two weeks of stinky, messy wet dog food (of course Sid loved the stuff). Not only is wet dog food foul to the human olfactory system, it’s also much harder on the wallet than dry food. I’m glad Sid still has plenty of healthy teeth left to crunch on hard food!
Since harder-chewing items like antlers are out of the mix for now, I found a softer, yet more stinky, alternative: ROLLED SALMON SKINS!
Whenever I hold something in my hand and start talking in a higher-than-normal voice, Sid knows he’s in for something good.
He made a bee-line for his bed and started smacking his lips and spinning in circles.
Once he got the fish skin in his mitts, he immediately knew what to do with it. He has good instincts. Actually, on second thought it’s probably not a very smart idea to assume that everything presented to you is edible but that’s the way he operates.
It actually took a Sid a good amount of time to soften and eat the delectable treat although I wish it would have lasted him a little longer. The worst part was when he got near the end and kept trying to wolf the “bite-size” morsel down. Took him a few attempts (ew!). Luckily they are not messy and the smell is much more tolerable than wet dog food so win-win!
