I want to get him a big fat steak, but he doesn't ever eat raw meat, should I not do that?

big fat steak will probably lead to big fat pile of diarrhea! I wouldn't go overboard, maybe some pieces of steak off the edges, if he wont eat meat raw then there is no point in giving it if it will only waste.

Yeah I would avoid that if he is not used to the raw! Maybe add some special treats to his food! or bake him a doggie cake! :thumbs up

You could also do something that he likes to do that day!!

When is Cassius's BDay?

Feb 11th

i guess ill just go get him some really junky dog treats - like beggin strips or something

i usually get the healthy treats that have stuff for his skin or joints in them - but everyone should splurge once in a while.

Hey I have never heard if doggie ice cream?? do they sell it somewhere near you?

Have you ever given Cass yogurt? My guy loves it! I was thinking you could get him a nice big dog cookie from the pet store and then dip it in some yogurt and then throw it in the freezer for a bit to chill the yougurt and then enjoy! :D

I have a dog cookie book if your interested....I actually think I posted it here before...I'll have a look

i have yet to venture into baking - as a 25 year old guy im pretty pleased that i cook for myself every night, baking terrifies me.

doggie ice cream has been around at least 5-6 years -

but there is a pet store right across from my new apartment, they have all kinds of cookies and stuff on display there, ill get him a few of those too.


edit: and i have tried yogurt - he turned his nose up at it.

I give my guys plain yogurt and they love it.

Natural plain yogurt is good for them.

I would give him his favourite food on his "B" day. Hope you both have a great day on the 11th.

My new rescue Keesha will be 3 tomorrow, I think I will do something special for her. She deserves it, just like your boy does.
