Perhaps it is time to eliminate all treats/snacks.
The underbite thing is silly, unless the dogs mouth is hurting. My pup has an underbite and has no issues eating.
Please please please give Maggie the steak! Its not too big for her little mouth!
Their impression of power is remarkable. They give one the feeling of immense reserves of energy, of great reservoirs of knowledge, of tolerance of disposition, obstinacy of purpose, and tenacity of principle. They are responsive, and they have a lot of quiet, good sense.
