Then, our favorite brand of dog food, for Rye anyway, Before Grain, changed their formula, giving it a higher protein content. Rye never has done well on high protein foods so I didn't even try the new formula. I switched to another lower protein food, Pure Vita. He did not do well on that. Arg! So it was chicken and rice for a few days. He is back to good again and we are trying another food, Pinnacle. So far so good.
Last weekend we went to visit our family in the mountains. Ahh, so much cooler. I am so tired of the 100 degree days we've been having!
We took the dogs on a hike to Goose Creek Falls. 6 miles round trip. Rye had so much fun.
Half way there, happy and dirty which for him equal the same thing.
A nice long nap after the hike.
Another little jaunt the next day.
I hadn't done any agility with him in weeks as he didn't seem up to it to me. He always watches Indi from the house when we train outside and I'm sure he is a little jealous but then I take him out and throw the toy a few times and then he's done. He lies down with it and wants to rest. My vet says his heart murmur has not changed so that is good.
Today I cooked up some beef heart and cut it in to little bits for treats.
Here is Rye doing old man dog backyard English Setter agility for beef heart.
Just one more little piece of beef heart?
