Eat More Vegetables!

I believe I've mentioned earlier that lately Murphy has been craving, demanding, and hollering for pasta and vegetables. I still give him some soft, crock-pot chicken, and of course I soften his prescription dog food with warm water so he's getting a full array of nutrients, but damn, this dog absolutely craves steamed veggies and pasta.

And let's remember where he was here on a very rough weekend and here in February. I am not a drama queen, I didn't exaggerate the gravity of his condition. The vet also thought this was IT.

Apparently not. I took these last night:


After he ate a huge dinner of soft cooked chicken, softened kibble and some mushroom and green bean risotto, and wanted to gum his Teddy Grahams for dessert.

His bucket list diet may take him to 16.

He looks good! And he definitely eats better than I do (LOL)....

Yay! I'm rooting for him! (We had a cat make it to somewhere around 21! She predated me and I was in high school when she finally went. And she had a rough start, so if she could do it...)

Also, he looks a little like a Siamese cat in these photos! Like a very happy inquisitive and engaged Siamese.

He looks fit and feisty enough to take down Trump! From here that man looks like a real problem. Watched part of the the 'debate' - I thought we had a seriously dud batch of politicians and snake oil salesmen, but our mob is looking good right now.

No cheap dog food is good dog food. Feeding cheap food could cost you in vet bills.
