I thought the kids were bad in demanding certain food choices and “no I can’t eat those potatoes the peas are touching them” and all. We now have a dog that is pretending to be a cat that demands certain foods. I say demands but he can’t talk, and since he is only nine pounds he can’t force you to pay attention, but if we put down food that he liked just a few days ago and he wants something else he’ll just stand there and ignore it. Eventually he gets tired of just standing and walks off and since he’s blind he bumps into the cabinets and walls until he finds where you are then just stands and pisses in front of you. Well, how else is he supposed to get your attention?
B has taken to feeding him directly. But she still has to go through a pack or two (or three) until finding the flavor of the day that he’ll eat. Come on, he’s twenty years old, deaf and blind and costing us a bundle in vet fees already, we don’t need him starving now too.
And you took this dog on because? If you need pain in your lives there are lots of other ways.
BTW, our cat went into a fit on our last trip and just would not stop howling. Looking it up on the net, it could be kitty Alzheimers; there really is such a thing and it sounds like your dog might be pretty close as well.
Buster has been with us for seventeen years, and probably deserves to be hand fed for putting up with us all this time.
