Gramma's Bentos!

Friday, August 29, 2008


Hello everyone!

Thanks for all the comments about my raw feasting! I didn't know that there are so many other doggies who feast on raw food too! Glad to hear that more and more doggies are doing so, coz it's not only more DELICIOUS but more healthy too...*wink* I've had so far eaten more chicken (chicken thigh, chicken breast, chicken back with lots of meat) and Mom says I've gotten pretty good at it too! I've finished my food faster now, and when I do, I would go back inside to announce to Mom, "I'm done!" and she would wipe my face down with a damp cloth...hee! I keep asking Mom to give me other meat, but she said that I must go slow so that I will get used to eating raw first. She says there's buffalo in the coming weeks...COOL! Can't wait for it!

On another note, it's been really hot these days, and my fur's been growing Gramma said instead of sending me to the groomers (and saving some money), SHE would give me a fur-cut herself! So, she took out the buzz-cutter and....

Voila! The new me! *grins*

I quite like the fur-cut, since it made me all cool and nice...=)

This is what it looks like from the side...not bad for a beginner, no? *wink* Gramma said it's not nearly as good as the groomers, but since my fur grows back fast, it's not really a big deal...heh!

Me chilling out with my new look...

Gramma found something nasty after the cut though...bumps that looked like pimples on my skin! Eep! Mom said they have been there for quite some time before my raw feasting started, so she's hoping that now I'm started on raw food, the skin allergies would go away. Mean time, she's putting some ointment to help quicken the process. I sure hope it goes away too! Mom says I look weird with all those bumps, especially when my fur is so short! You can't really see them from the photos, but upclose...eep!

Wow, you look pawsome after your makeover! Your Mom did a good job indeed. Oooh yeah, raw meatables taste oh sooo scrumptious but we are not allowed to eat at all becoz we have very sensitive stomachs becoz we were not fed on BARF since young so we're not used to it. We do enjoy eating the raw meat more but getting diarrhea everyday is just terrible. Hopefully you're doing fine with it. Actually, the correct meat for dogs to eat is red bloody meat. Chicken meat is actually the wrong one becoz it is the cheapest & the most affordable meat in the market. Just becareful on the chicken thigh & wing bones though... Many people say that cooked bones will splinter but I say so does the un-cooked ones becoz you can still crush it & it will still be sharp no matter what. We eat cooked meat but only brisket bones, cartilages (cartilage is VERY good for us doggies! It's good for hip problems especially) & chicken necks. The chicken neck bones are round & smooth so it won't cause any damage to the internal organs. Poo poo will be smaller & harder especially when you're eating the bones. Not sure about the smell tho. Have not smelled a BARF-eating dog's poo before. In health wise, maybe it does cure some problems but no guarantee. Eyes, fur & everything else, no guarantee either. I have met a few dogs that are on kibbles, one specifically on Pedigree dog food, has fantastic health & fur, 10 years old this year & still jumping around like a puppy, while the others on BARF, don't look so great themselves. I only know a handful of doggies that eat BARF so I don't know about the others whether they look better or not. Some doggies that are on BARF or kibbles, look exactly the same in condition wise & health wise. I can agree that BARF is healthier for the dog but it's certainly not any safer than kibbles or cooked meat. Every type of food have their pros & cons. All of them have their good & bad. But for us, kibbles + home cooked food is the best & most suitable for us. We occasionally do get two to three raw, straight from the supermarket chicken necks just as treats. Only once in a while but then the next day, my hoomans will have to get ready for the huge mess in the house & on our backside fur. BOL! If you're pawfectly fine with raw meat, then that's great! There's nothing to worry about. Anyway, enjoy your new meal. Be sure to lick off any grease left under your paws & beard after each meal. Heehee!

Hi Nottie Scottie, Thanks for visiting my blog. I've not tried raw meat before, altho I'm sure our ancestors all ate raw food. Somehow, as our humans became civilised they started feeding us cooked meat.
BTW, do you have any objections if I added you to my blog list?

Maggie said...

Good evening scottie.
Cutting the hair is pleasant when it is hot.
Wonderful looks bathe in the envy of surroundings.
It thinks of a wonderful preparation for playing as the weather worrying on the weekend. :)

Hi Scottie,
Congrats on the raw food trial, that makes my mom paying attention now. Snowy&Crystal are on that diet too.
Your Grammy should open a groom shop, you look so handsome, Scottie!
Thanks for your kind words about the pawlimpics entry, I'm still mad at my mom.
Do you know Snowy&Crystal? their blog:
Please visit them to support their mom and to cheer them up.

Deetz said...

Yes, Scottie, you can add me to your friends list. I would love to be your friend. I added you to mine today

A&S said...

hey your granma did pretty well. we never have to get our furs cut because we "molt" which the sis says is way worse than shedding, but it works for us!

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Scottie,
Gramma did a very nice job grooming you! Our Mama strips & clips our hair all of the time. We've never been to a groomer. We hope your bumps go away, maybe they are oil glands plugged. Do they ever itch?? Let us know if they go away.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

I'm so glad I don't have to get my hair cut, but if I needed to, I'd ask your Gramma to do it. You look pawsome, Nottie Scottie!

Isis said...

i think your grammy did a wonderful job!

Winnie Woo said...

oh my scottie, how cool and comfortable you look! I wish I could say the same...

Lady Kaos said...

Mom and Dad have tried saving money by giving Sasha haircuts instead of taking her to the groomer. Mom says the money she pays the groomer is well worth it because Sasha doesn't hold still and wiggles out really easily. That reminds me, i wonder if Mom remembere to call the groomer today. I bet she forgot again. Sasha's going to be a big ball of fur pretty soon if Mom doesn't remember to call!

G'day Scottie,
First of all we just want to say how nice you're looking. Gramma did a pawesome job.
Secondly we didn't get the chance to comment on your previous post (due to sewer probs lol) but we're all raw fed too. Our fav is chicken legs, brisket bones and fish fillets.


the 4 Bs said...

hi Scottie, that's a pawtastic haircut. our mom cuts our hairs too and we like it better than the groomer. we don't like the haircut too much, but we do like mom.

we eat 1/2 raw food and 1/2 kibbles. hee hee. we get the best of everything.

Ah Scottie, so many hairdoo's! At first I thought you had the rio carnival ruffles on you're arms AND then I realised your Nanna got it right and made some great trousers and tummy protector! She is very creative - now what are you going to spend yopur savings on???? Ummm Kongs! I guess liver paste goes better with raw than peanut butter, what are your thoughts??

Gaston is back! muahahahaha said...

Hi Scottie!
Congratulations to your grandma, she did a good job, you look really good with your new cut puuuurrrrr

Susan Sehi-Smith said...

Scottie you look very stylish. Maybe your gramma should consider a second career..."Groomer to the Stars" because you look handsome enough to be in movies. I hope the new diet helps with your skin allergies; my parent give me Omega3and vitamin enriched chewies every day to keep my coat nice.

Hi, Scottie -

Your Gramma did a great job with your haircut. Mama takes Kaci and I to the groomer - we don't sit still.

Hope your bumps go away soon. Schnauzers can get eczema.

Love -
