My life is dominated by my life with 5 (yes that's five) big dogs. In this blog I'll be talking about dog life, dog training, and dog health issues.

Dog Food Update
Well last night was the clincher. At about 3 AM my German Shepherd Brandy walked out into the hallway, waking me up. I didn't pay much attention until I heard a big explosion: of the diarrhea kind! Almost complete liquid. Brandy is a really good dog and has never had problems with going potty inside, but she looked awfully happy after this episode! I was miserable, having to clean up dog poop that was completely liquid at 3 AM! Luckily I had some Nature's Miracle on hand that made it much easier. Anyway so this afternoon I stopped by PetSmart and picked up a big bag of Nutro. Give that a few days to see if it clears up the digestive problems with the dogs. If not I guess I will have to head to the vet and see if its something else, but at this point I'm pretty sure the Solid Gold just hasn't been agreeing with the dogs. I am putting Brandy all on Nutro right away, but will be mixing half and half Solid Gold/Nutro for the other dogs.
I'm a physicist that happens to own 3 horses and 5 dogs. I do horse training in my spare time and follow expert horse trainer Eric Bravo around when I get a chance, sometimes with a video camera. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
