My Raw Fed Great Dane Dad and Friends

Dane puppy gnawing on trumpet vineThis post was written in “first dog” by Meshach the Great Dane puppy.

Recently I got to have a reunion with my dog Dad, Dalton! He and his human (my former human) Barbie came through NM on their way to a dog show in TX. I remembered him RIGHT away wiggling all over happy to see him again – although he wasn’t as thrilled with me at first but then as time went on, it was all good. You can see him and his human Barbie in the photos and me laying down in the background close by. I kept trying to get up on him and kiss his face too.

We met at our friend Chryssa’s house so I could get to hang out with my pal Dane pal, Dahlia. Her dog roommate, Dawson (he’s a Corgi-Heeler mix) doesn’t like other dogs at his house so he didn’t get to hang out with us. But he and Dahlia have been coming to go walking with me in my neighborhood and he is at least tolerating me now, woof! I like him bepaws he reminds me of my Aunt Dixie. She is a Corgi who lives with my Dad, Dalton, my sister, Cleo, and Barbie. She was like our nanny who helped mom raise us pups.

I think one day Dawson might just like me back so I am just biding my time as we dogs do.

Dalton, Dahlia, Dawson (lots of “Ds” in there!), Cleo and myself are ALL raw fed dogs, woof! I LOVE mealtime bepaws I get to eat REAL food not that junk in a bag or can.

We’re all naturally reared so our humans have noticed that we just seem to be much more alert and focused than conventionally raised dogs AND healthier of course, woof! Mom says “Just knowing the horrible stuff that goes into kibble, how it is made and also all the chemicals in the packaging makes me REAL glad I raw feed!” I’m REAL glad she does too!

beautiful white Great DaneNow I did fool my humans recently when they tried to put some old venison pancreas into a dish for me – they should have kept it semi-frozen so it could be a dog popsicle haha, but they didn’t. I told them “What am I supposed to do with that? Where is my tripe???” They said I made a face equivalent to that of a human child being forced to eat broccoli! I will eat ANY kind of ground organ so maybe like Mom I want it firmer like meant instead of wiggly like jello.

She says if I can eat green tripe I should be able to eat ANYTHING, woof! Humans think it’s smelly but we dogs LOVE it!

I will be sharing my dog Mom Marlo, Cleo, aunts, uncles, grandma, grandpa and cousins in upcoming blog posts so stay tuned!

Can you all name which of the eight laws of health I mentioned in this blog post???

Well that’s all for this time!

Have a pawsitively tail waggin’, NATUROPATHICALLY healthy day, woof!

    1. Hey Toby-wan!

      Thank you, Mom sure thinks he is. She said he has captivating eyes – I bet he gets that from all the women hehe. Barbie says I look just like him as a puppy. In fact she said out of the entire litter I looked the most like him, so I am betting I’m gonna be big and strong like him one day…and I hope win all the ladies too, woof!

      Thanks again for stopping by with your encouragement Toby-wan. Enjoy your weekend, woof!
