He is is old jan

His lack of bowels a problem

My Beautiful hound hound from hell

And I feed him chicken, steamed fish

But young Albert came today as we are moving the fish from the main pond to re coat and waterproof it

Donít ask , the fish were really a match , gosh they are so much bigger than we thought

But young Albert had a smoked bacon sandwich

And shadow came alive , now Iím sure it wasnít good for him ,but a slice of brown bread and smoked bacon went down really well with shadow

And he decided breakfast would be a good idea

And heís looking interested in the chicken Iím cooking

Iíve mixed a bit of barley with his white rice and thrown in some green beans

I feed him a tin of butchers tripe for breakfast

Because I worry maybe he needs the additional additives

And a non grain mixer

So Iím doing all I can

And yes I know a bacon butty isnít really good for him

But heís an old hound , itís what he wanted at that moment in time

How often at a moment in time

We just need something and care not if itís good for us ?

As young Albert says, grandma, his backbone is sticking out

He doesnít feel right

And he doesnít heís getting thin as he gets older

In spite of my attempts to provide tasty meals

And I doubt a vet can change that

Just as Iím less mobile

And I doubt a doctor can change that either , his bed is memory foam to support his joints , as is mine

And tonight I think he is going to eat

Sandra

Although he slams himself on the wooden floor of the bathroom

I'm quite jealous at all that Sandra. I had to cook my own Turkey cordon-bleu and chips tonight.

Personal Aire
I very much doubt that an odd piece of bacon and bread will do him much, if any, harm.

If that is what tempts him, I would go for it - sadly as you say, he is a Shadow of is former self, so to give him a little of what he craves cannot be bad.

That is how we try to treat people who are running out of get up and go, I would treat him in the same way that you would treat an elderly person who similarly is not acting as they used to - giving him a little is unlikely to be a problem. Not feed him exclusively on things which MIGHT cause him problems, but encouragement by the odd thing every now and then.

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

We havenít taken him yet pat

Heís not very vet friendly !!

Heís just getting old, he ate his meal ok last night

Heís always had digestive problems on and off due to his lack of intestines which is to be expected

So we will see How he goes on this next day or two
