We have been explaining how we are working to put more weight on Typhoon, but we really haven’t described how much of a picky eater he is.
Some days, Typhoon will just eat his kibble as given. Some days, he wants a little extra flavor added and refuses to eat. We tried lots of things – cheese, gravy, chicken – and finally found that the most reliable supplement was a couple of spoonfuls of beef and vegetable chunky soup.
But don’t dare buy the wrong brand of that chunky soup. Weirdly, we can’t buy the national brand name. We have to buy the local store brand.
And, to make things even more confusing, some days Hu-dad automatically adds the chunky soup and Typhoon refuses to eat it because he wants just dry kibble.
And, yes, Hu-dad has always subscribed to the theory that we have so many minutes to eat a meal and then it is picked up with nothing offered until the next meal. While that works for the rest of us, unfortunately, Typhoon has been amazingly stubborn, so getting weight on him is a priority.
Fortunately, we have really hit a rhythm the last several weeks where Typhoon has been cleaning his bowl – sometimes with soup added and sometimes not. So imagine Hu-dad’s surprise last night when he collected bowls and saw this.
Upon closer examination, Hu-dad discovered that this was Typhoon’s heartworm preventative. Yes, Typhoon had eaten his entire meal around the preventative while everyone else ate their’s without complaint.
A cheese ball was made and pill was swallowed.
