Mine don't get fed anything else until they eat their pellets. No pellets, no food. Eventually they learn to eat it... grudgingly.

Some are spoiled brats. But they'll starve until they can lower themselves to their owners standards. Unless they're sick, they'll eat eventually.

So is having a dog >.< Mine even likes to watch cartoons.

Rant: Remember how I supposedly had "gout"? Well I'd written it off as no way no how but now my toe on the other foot has been hurting for several days now. I'm REALLY hoping it's nothing because I don't know what I'd do if that pain like I had a few months ago came back. I wouldn't be able to walk my dog or work :(

"RANT:"

My rant is now one of JOY!
So, I have been tryin to raise money to get COMFTORABLE beds for the dogs on death row to sleep on (all dogs at this shelter are death row dogs btw, even puppies)
The "beds" at the shelter no are mesh metal and NO dogs sleep on them because they are so uncomfy!
Well, after raising money for three beds, having them shipped (the dogs LOVE them)
I opened up my email to find someone donated $100!!!!!
I have been crying since then. I am now $65 dollars short of having three more beds to send to the shelter... this will make a WHOLE row full of these comfy beds!!!

(If anyone wants to donate, here is the chip-in... the sign says $0 but right now there is $180... I did the html wrong,ug... but, if you can donate even $5... which actually, $5 donations is how the first bed as paid for, it will be appreciated and you will recieve pictures of the dogs enjoying the comfy beds!)

http://beds4hokecounty.chipin.com/ku...animal-shelter

And our (the volunteers) FB page, all dogs, puppies, cats, nd kittens are posted there with their euthanization dates, the more people who add, the more awarness there is of these former loved pets or abused animals!!!

Garlic is an appetite enhancer so try soaking them for 5 or 10 mins. in garlic juice.
Just crush a clove of garlic in a little bowl, soak the pellets and see if he'll eat them that way

Good luck.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
