Thinking of you and Tiny, hoping she eats well today. Take care.

LOL sounds like my house!
I came home from the store at noontime today, and went out to fire up the grill. My husband and daughter were drooling as I grilled 8 nice big burgers. Which I then proceeded to bring in the house and cut up and freeze for Tiny's breakfasts, ha ha.
Okay, I'm not as mean as I sound. They had both already eaten lunch!!
Today was a good day. She ate all of her food happily today, even out of a bowl.
Right now I have a nice big pot of chicken simmering on the stove. Hmmm, should I make soup for DH, or boiled chicken and carrots for Tiny? Decisions, decisions....

I'm glad Tiny likes the gizzards.

I don't think I'll make a bet on soup for DH. Tiny rules!

Hoping for a good day for you, Tiny and the rest of the family.
I know the feeling the family gets. Rose seems to like my rice and beef cooked in low sodium chicken broth so now I make it for her once a week and she get a little with her kibble each evening. Last weekend I was cooking for Rose while I had a Frozen Stouffer's Lasagna in the oven for us. DH said that that picture just doesn't look right - I explained that no one beats a Stouffer's Lasagna.

oh yes they do....try a Marie Callender's frozen lasagna!!! Got Stouffer's beat hands down!

This morning I was cutting up some onions for something (not for Tiny!), and then I went to feed Tiny. She wouldn't touch the beef I was offering her. Suddenly I had a blinding flash of the obvious....smelled my hands....yep, pure onion!!! Put the beef in a bowl, and she cleaned up every crumb and licked the bowl.

Continued good wishes for Tiny...have a wonderful day sweetie.

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

Glad Tiny is eating... sounds like she's doing well.

Your story reminds me of an "It's me or the dog" I saw once. The kids had called in Victoria to help them out. Their parents would spend hours in the kitchen cooking meat and fresh vegetables for the two dogs, then feed the children frozen meals! The dogs were perfectly healthy--they had just taken over the parents' affections, and the parents hadn't realized it! But Victoria of course got them all straightened out.

I tried Marie Callender's years ago. Maybe they improved! Will put it on DH's shopping list nthis Saturday - in our family he does the grocery shopping (it takes me way too long and he always complains that it is not the right brand of bread, of spaghetti...etc - so he got his wish - "the grocery list")
