As we have mentioned before, Typhoon’s weight has always been a key concern of ours. Not too much – too little. We had worked hard to move his weight from 40 to 42 lbs, but our weigh in at the vet yesterday showed us back down to the 40 lb mark.
Typhoon’s eating habits are legendary and frustrating. He skips meals, eats partial meals, and picks at his food. We have tried many different things, including Satin Balls (which he likes some days and decides he has no interest other days – just like everything else). Nothing we have found makes him consistently want to eat. A picky eater at a healthy weight will just get to eat at the next meal, but when you are underweight, we have to try different things.
So, yesterday, we drew some more blood to send off for a detailed analysis and did some other things while at the vet. Hopefully, one day we will unlock the mystery of Typhoon’s appetite. Until then, Typhoon will continue to be nicknamed Little Man and Munchkin.

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window. This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
