George finally got a present today! The first one after Christmas, that is. The postman rang the front door to deliver a small parcel for the dog of the house. Since George is one of those spoilt creatures who LOVE presents, I’m sure you can imagine the excitement with which he ripped open the envelope to reveal the surprise. He was more than delighted to find this:
As some of you may know, whippets can be fussy eaters and really appreciate fine dining. There is not point presenting a whippet with over-processed food, because he won’t eat it (unless his life depends on it, I guess). Bland food is a no go, too, and George made this clear to us from day one. Therefore, in an attempt to keep him alive and take the best possible care of him, we started what could almost be described as a crash PhD course in canine nutrition. This is how we came to adopt the BARF diet with a good sprinkle of quality herbal supplements for our dog, and how he ended up being a healthy, energetic and shiny boy.
However useless the above introduction may seem, it is crucial to understanding why George running out of his food supplements a few weeks ago was such a big deal. Being used to yummy food tickling his taste buds, he has missed his “spices” and has been complaining about it ever since. So, yesterday we finally got our act together and ordered some more. We were very pleasantly surprised that they arrived so quickly, but the one bearing the biggest smile of all times was, of course, George:
Bon appétit, little whippet!
