I know no one comes on here and says "Gee, what an ugly critter you have", but I'm not just throwing you a line when I say that is one great looking dog!
I LOVE his rich color and his ears!! Perfect little face, too. I blubbered over the resting-between-feet shot especially....

afternoon
6 cups dry with some mixed vegies
evening
6 cups dry and mabey some leftover bones as a treat

WOW DC man thats a lot of food!

One hungry Simon you got there!

Have you though about substituting one of them meals or adding some fresh chicken and veggies to it? Even some fish!

I wonder what his adult weight is gonna be 40lbs already, man he's gonna be so HUGE!

Luba...Simon gets fresh vegies and chicken,I'll also give him fresh moose meat to.I cut all his meat into small bite size cubes. :D
Please note though Luba Simon doesnt always eat all his kibble and will pick through it to get at the good stuff. :D
I tried giving less kibble but he then looks for more to eat.Had him checked for worms twice.
What i might try is on his 2nd and 3rd feeding decrease the kibble by 3 cups and add more of the meats and vegies. :D

Ahh so he knows where to dig for the good stuff, smartie fartie!

Moosemeat I"m sure he'll love that :D If it's very greasy (? never had it) you may want to boil it instead of bake it to rinse the grease off of it.


How's he doing walkin on leash for you?

We wash all our meet both for us and Simon wether it be chicken or beef :D Simon is doing well on his leash but can be a bit of a goof at times,He will walk sometimes with part of the leash in his mouth but no tugging,I have to remind him that is a "no no".Other people walking thier dogs think its halarious.

Simon jumped on the table yesterday chasing the cat again and he did it right in front of the wife :eek: ,She was not impressed LMAO.Simon looked at my wife like he did nothing wrong or its some kind of game tail wagging and his tongue hanging to one side.The wife asked Simon have you heard of the word DOG POUND :D

I will have to cure him of that soon before he gets to big.

LMAO!! :D When Tux is bad, I sometimes threaten to take him to "Henry's", a Chinese food restaurant that got shut down for "supposidly" using cat meat in their meals!!! He just looks at me like I'm the one that's done something wrong!!! :eek: Crazy cat!!!
