We adopted Gimli together, so I could understand his "what the ..?" reaction at first, he is kind of our "kid". But he didn't say no, either, because he wanted Gim's issues to be over, too. So he kind of stood back and let me do my thing, and now he embraces it a lot more. He'll feed him if I get home late, as long as I point out what to give him and when. He's getting the hang of it!
We started raw the day we brought home our Bluetick Coonhound pup home so my dog and our dog were started the same day. He was pretty skeptical about wether an 8 week old pup would be able to eat raw but Buck showed him what he could do and chomped through a chicken quarter like it was nothing. Like I said, I just don't think he entirely knew that, when I said we were going to feed raw I meant that we were going to give them raw animal parts! Hahaha. Our dogs are our kids too. Now that we have three, Buck being second oldest, we call him "the troubled middle child". It fits him too because he is a stubborn hound. We don't plan on having kids so these guys are it!
