Hershey Girl, our foster dog (who I mentioned in my last post), is mostly over her kennel cough. Yay! She has more energy and is no longer having difficulty swallowing. Also yay! She’s still being very picky about food, which is apparently odd for beagles. Definitely something to ask about at the vet visit. It’s possible she’s learned that if she ignores kibble, she can hold out for chicken, and once she realizes that more chicken is not forthcoming, she’ll eat her kibble. What’s bizarre is that she’s not eating out of her dish, but will eat if I put a little handful of kibble in front of her. We’re still putting chicken or beef stock on it, and are now doing that for Diamond too. It’s easy and cheap, and if it makes the puppies happy and gets more variety in their diet, that’s a good thing. It’s possible that she’s eating the cats’ food, so I’m going to pick that up when I leave in the mornings. Which will no doubt irritate their feline majesties, but oh well.
