Hmm, when my parent's dog eats frozen peas (she loves em), she sometimes eats too many and starts to shiver.

I guess Shelby is okay if she licks them to death rather than swallows them whole. It's like a meatsicle!

Winnie, If Shelby likes broth, try getting her the fill and freeze bone. My dogs love it. Just fill with broth and freeze. The bone has little tiny holes in it so if they lick the bone, the broth will melt. :)

Lucky Shelby! Grandma knows how to make clothes that fit Shelby and she sure knows how to surprise Shelby with yummy foods and
spoils her when she visits! Hooray for Winnie's Mom!

what a great idea for the frozen beef broth! jersey will love that for right now, its so hot outside!

Wow I never thought of that! So just use beef broth like soup? I must try that on my little Pinky! Since she's an obsessive licker of walls, sheets, and toes she has to love beef broth! It must taste better! :D

Shelby's a v lucky pug. My pug gets nothing else except for dry kibble for fear of skin problems. Are your pugs always so itchy with dandruff like mine? What's the best shampoo for such skin (oily, flaky, itchy)?

Posted by: Jo | Jul 18, 2007 12:05:50 AM

Shelby's skin is pretty healthy. At first we were washing her every week and that dried out her skin, and she got flaky and itchy. We bathe her once oever 2-3 weeks now, with furminator shampoo and follow with conditioner, and that seems to work out really well.

Thanks for your reply Winnie. What's a furminator shampoo? I thot flaky skin is oily skin rather than dry? When you touch Shelby, do you feel a layer of powdery-greesy feel in your palm?

Posted by: Jo | Jul 18, 2007 6:19:03 PM

It's a brand of shampoo I find at Petsmart, but many different shampoo brands work well. I think the important part is to also have some kind of conditioner.

There's no greasy powdery feel when I pet uer unless it's been a few weeks.
