Dave's Naturally Healthy Food

This time around, we tried Dave's Pet Food Naturally Healthy Chicken & Rice Recipe Canned Dog Food from As I've said before, my hounds tend to get bored with dry kibble, so we always like to try something new to spice things up.

Funny thing, every time I opened a can of this food, I was reminded of a previous foster of mine, Sysco Dave.  Dave went to the bridge earlier this year, but he sure was a special boy.

All in all, Lazy Days Greys give this four paws up!  I use canned food to put my foster Vic's seizure meds in.  If you are using it in that type of scenario, I recommend putting it in the refrigerator to firm it up a bit.

Taste of the Wild

Things have been crazy here at Lazy Days Greys.  But one thing that stays the same is that it seems the hounds get bored with their dry food.  I am always on the lookout for good things to top off their meals.  This month we tried the Taste of the Wild Southwest Canyon Canine Formula from  The hounds give this one a four paws up!

"What do you mean we are all out of the delicious canned food from Taste of the Wild?"

 Clareese is a food hound, so she always loves anything to eat!

Looking Back on 2016

As we are getting ready to say goodbye to 2016, I thought I would give an update on the hounds here at Lazy Days Greys.
Sadie, my sweet, sweet Sadie.  Last month we celebrated Sadie's 13th birthday.  To say this was a milestone would definitely be an understatement.  When we adopted Sadie, she had been diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy and mild mitral valve disease.  She was taking prescriptions that cost about $100 and month and was quickly renamed "million dollar baby".  She had various health issues (mostly the damn toes) and seemed to have some rotten luck.  After testing a couple of years ago, it was found that she had a birth defect and not all the other problems with her heart.  She came off all the medicine.  She is a happy girl these days.  A little thinner and a little slower, but we are so thankful that she's still around.  
Bowser, my goof ball.  Bowser is just as goofy as every.  We like to say "not the brightest crayon in the box", but we love him.  Always within my eyesight and way too attached to his momma, he's my boy.  Other than horrible teeth, my Bow-wow is doing just greyt.

Clareese, my baby girl.  Clareese is a little more quirky than her brother, Bowser.  She is learning to like men more and more.  Still has the baldest butt and never misses a meal.  My little chunky girl.  Her teeth are not as bad as her brother's, but still not the greatest.

Vic, silly and crazy is the resident comedian.  This cold snap has turned this boy into a riot.  He loves nothing more than to run out the door and go to his favorite hole and dig away.  With his goofy gait (after effects of the seizures) and sheer joy on his face, he loves to run the yard.  So far we have only had one incident of seizure activity, but thankfully, he came out of it.

So there it is in a nutshell.  We are so very thankful for a good year with the dogs.  All the pups are healthy and happy.  (Now if I jinxed it, I'm going to kick myself!)

Vic Ferrari

Welcome Vic!  Vic Ferrari joined us as foster #32.  Vic had stayed with us once before when his previous foster mom went on a trip.  When the opportunity came up for him to come back here as a permanent foster, we couldn't resist.
Vic has a bit of a sad story.  His original mom, Sara, passed away in November 2014.  Vic is also a seizure dog and his mom sought him out as she was a sucker for the special needs pups.  His seizures are under control with his meds, but it will take the right person to want to adopt him.  So until then, he will be a permanent foster of our group.
Vic has fit in seamlessly around here.  Good with the cat and absolutely adores my grandson.  He's a big old goofy boy weighing in at 85 pounds.  He has a few corns and has a funny little run, but he's a joy to have around.

For some strange reason, all the hounds in the house have gotten bored with their kibble.  Even Clareese, who will eat anything.  I started researching different brands of kibble and really couldn't come up with one that was 1.) readily available and 2.) affordable.  Currently we feed Sportmix Wholesomes.  I like it because it is manufactured in Evansville, Indiana and I can get it a the Pet Food Center just across the street from where I work.  The summer here has been brutal, so I think they were being picky due to heat.  This Wellness canned food is great and they love it!
