New Dishy & A Big Fat Fishy

Thank you to all of you who made my mum feel really guilty about the inferior quality of my dinner bowls. I now have a sparkly new one which is never going to move anywhere as it's HUGE and VERY heavy. Yay! The double bonus is that hopefully lots more food fits into it.

It only took reading your comments & some pleading looks from me & she hot-footed it to the shops.

I definitely have the woeful look down to a fine art now don't you think? Flop around a bit, look sad, use the eyes to silently plead (even though you can hardly see mine due to the huge furry caterpillars that have taken up residence). Works like a charm every time!

For my breakfast yesterday mum gave up on the idea of the bowl altogether. I was a bit worried that she thought I had turned into a dolphin when she started throwing fishies at me though! Only joking, I am a good boy & like my oily fish full of Omega oils to make me super smart. Uh-oh, I guess that means I have no excuses for doing badly at obedience class tomorrow...

Turn the volume down if you are grossed out by meaty grinding noises!

While mum was out buying my bowl, she also got me some veggies. I have about 100g of blitzed up veggies with one of my meals each day. Mum whizzes a big batch up which she freezes in individual portions.

Today on the menu we have spring greens, seeing as we are in that lovely season at the moment

Courgettes. Do some of you call these by a different name?

Baby spinach so I'm strong like Popeye

Parsley for sweet breath!

Carrots so I can see in the dark

Here it is all blitzed up. This was half the batch. Mum did the other half separately then mixed it all up. I didn't like the noise of the blitzer at first, but I soon realised that scary whizzer noise meant food for me, so now I don't care at all.

I also get fruits blitzed up some days, and I have a banana in my Kong once a week. Yummy!

This is what I have for one meal a day. It's minced up fresh raw meat with some bone content still present. There are lots of different options: beef, rabbit, fish, lamb, chicken, chicken & liver, & delicious stinky tripe! I have about 200g of this, about half this pack along with my veggies & my yogurt.

Mum adds 1 teaspoon of each of my magic powders to my food Monday - Friday. These contain lots of vitamins & minerals. I also get cod liver oil in my food. One day a week I get my eggy as you saw yesterday.

For my other meal I get a raw meaty bone such as turkey neck, oxtail, lamb shank, whole fishy, lamb shank or beef rib. Once a week or so I get offal such as liver or heart.

I was forever sick when I was on kibble with bad tummy problems & this BARF diet seems to be working well for me. I know it isn't for everyone though so I would never suggest anyone follows it unless your mum & dad have done lots of reading & research/talking to people & decide it's best for YOU!

And here is my lovely new bowl! See how HUGE it is!! And it says DOG, so no danger of Fat Flakes eating from it (even though hers says CAT & I eat from it, but let's not go there).

Mum managed to press record this time so you can see how nicely I do my wait...yeah, I know I'm kind of leering at the bowl but it was the first time I saw my new bowl & I was getting my meal later than normal as mum had been out shopping to get it, then messing about whizzing veggies!

No more posts about food for a while now I promise!

wet wet licks


Marvin The Dog said...

Oscar - I have the same bowl as you! Except mine has water in, and it is outside now it is nearly summer, my outside water bowl. It gets windy sometimes and the plastic one blows away!

Your food looked interesting too! I do not eat vegetables at all, don't like them much. Jeannie said she was pleased to see your Mum is helping Tesco with their huge profits!

liked your vids and pics very much but they made me hungry!

apart from the green stuff - yuk!

love and licks Marv xxxx

Faya said...

Oscar tu me donne faim....Moi je mange par contre en hauteur c'est à dire que mon assiette n'est pas par terre comme ça mon oeusophage n'est pas plié quand je mange....En tous cas beaucoup de chiens chez nous mangent comme ça. Pas chez vous ? Gros bisous, même si tu sens le poisson, j'adore...

Maggie said...

We call your courgettes zucchini squash! I love your new bowl Oscar and I love how you have so much patience and WAIT for your mom to say "okay"!

Love ya lots,

Tadpole said...

Holy cow, Oscar! You eat gourmet dinners! *sigh* I only get my prescription kibbles and baby carrots. Cool new dish, though!

Asta said...

I woke up from my nap and ran to read my're the best for always writing..I like your bushy eyebrows they're very distiguished looking..and I think you're better than any celebrities I see..none of them have your gorgeous long legs and boootiful colored hair(except maybe julianne moore who I see walking her dog sometimes..a lab puppy) ..I'm still feeling wonky, so I don't want to talk about food, smoochie kisses ASTA

Jackson said...

You certainly have your Mum well trained preparing all your lovely dinners. They always make me feel peckish. I'm off to pester J1 for a treat. J x

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Oscar,
We call those long green things Zuchinni. Can you believe that Mama even feeds that to the koi fishies?? Yep, they even get veggies. Zuchinni, thawed frozen green peas, & mandarin oranges. Your new bowl is very neat. We need to beg Mama for new bowls. All we have for our food are plastic ones. We do have nice water bowls though.
Airedales & fox terriers are supposed to have nice eyebrows! It's part of our trademark look ya know? just like our beards & moustaches, hehehehe!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Vel said...

Simba said...

You should be fit and healthy after that lot. Look at all those veg, my rabbits would love that.

Simba xx

Toby said...

Oscar, your Mommy is a super cook!! Boy, that stuff sure looks yummy.... I want some too!! Hold on, gotta wipe the drool off my face.


Amber-Mae said...

Wow, I can't imagine how you can eat FISH & VEGGIES???!!! I hate fish alot especially Salmon & definitely veggies are a big no no for me. But you look like you're enjoying you food. Did it taste good?

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

jaffeboy said...

Oh, that is a nice bowl U have there.

I must say, I only like broccoli & carrot.

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

Oops, sorry that our comment made your mom to have to make a trip and get you another bowl.

Your mashed food somehow reminds us of Nadya'd food (she was having that when she was 6mth old cos Mama didnt give her those commercial food from the jar).

Boy n Baby

Peanut said...

What kind of fishes are those? I like whole sardines. Have you ever had those. Yummy Yummy.

Ruby Bleu said...

Wow Oscar, you have some pretty yummy things to eat. I just get kibble and sometime chicken and cottage cheese. Oh, and carrots, I love carrots.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

PS - I like your new bowl. I might have to ask my mom for one. Right now I eat by kibble out of a ball - long story.

Sophie Brador said...

Hey Oscar, Interesting that you call zuchini courgettes. We see that on French menus all the time, but most of the anglophones just say zuchini. (i know i spelled that wrong, but I'm a dog and spell check is too complicated).

Chelsea said...

I don't even want to tell you what I ate today.

You will think I am so to your diet.

I refuse to eat vegetables. And I don't do raw food. Mama has a hard time feeding me.


PerfectTosca said...

Geeze Oscar, now I'm hungry for the fourteen billionth time today!

Liberty Doo Dah said...

Yum Yum Oscar!
Dinner looks good! Mum says that I'm having fishies for breakfast tomorrow! I like that you wait until your mum says ok! I do the same thing!

Oscar Airedale said...

Boo - Don't feel bad! My new bowl is so much better

Marvin - Ooh, we are bowl twinnies

Faya - Merci pour les photo de ta table à manger x

Maggie - Ah yes, zucchini, that's the word

Tadpole - If your kibbles are what keep you healthy it's all good

Asta - Hope your tum is better today

Jackson - Yep, mum & dad are very well trained

Butchy & Snickers - I know eyebrows are our trademark, but mine are threatening to take over!

Fufu - I bet you eat lots of veggies too, right?

Velvet - Hope you got a good meal eventually

Simba - Yep, rabbit food is right, but I'm greedy & will eat anything!

Toby - You should see what mum cooks for her & dad, way more yummy

Amber-Mae - I have my garlic powder mixed with my veggies which makes them a lot tastier

Jaffe - Mum hasn't found a veg I won't eat yet. I'm a greedy piglet

Boy & Baby - No, thank you for your comments, new bowl is GREAT

Peanut - It's whole mackerel

Ruby-Bleu - When I used to eat kibble I had it from a treat cube thing to make me eat it slower

Sophie - Well, I guess we are quite near France here in the UK!

Chelsea - I guess supermodels are picky with their diets

Tosca - Sorry, hope you got some tasty dinner

Liberty - Hope you enjoy your fishy
