The life and times of an English Airedale Terrier puppy

Healthy Boy

Now as most of you know, I eat a raw diet, consisting of minced meats like chicken, lamb, rabbit, beef and fish, raw meaty bones like lamby shank, turkey neck, oxtail and other yummies, muscle meat like heart, offal (which isn't awful, hehehe) such as liver and kidney, raw eggs, raw veggies and fruits and plain natural yogurt along with a couple of supplements such as kelp and garlic powder. I used to get poorly tummy about 3-4 times a week on kibble no matter what one mum tried. Now I rarely do, and when I do it's usually because somebody gives me a treat I can't eat without asking mum or dad first. I of course am too greedy to refuse the treat even though I know it will give me poorly tum. Yeah, I'm stoopid!

So anyway, what part of my yummy dinners do you think I will generally dive into first? Have a look at this fine bowl of food before you make your decision. See how meaty and delicious that oxtail looks.

Have you made your choice? OK, let's see if you're right.

OK, so maybe that was a fluke right? Let's try it again with some yummy chicken & a raw eggy. Do you like my poor little starving urchin face? I think I have it perfected!

Ready, set go! If you don't like the noise of bones crunching you might want to turn down the sound.

Yep, I'm a funny boy. I'll always go for a bit of yogurt and my smushed veggies before eating the meat. Delicious as my meaty bones are, I know that I need to be healthy and eat my yogurt and green stuff to so I grow up big and healthy!

Mum makes up big batches of my veggies and freezes them in individual portions and while she's chopping up, blitzing and bagging I sit waiting expectantly in the kitchen. I don't even mind the loud noise the blitzer makes as I know it is producing good stuff for me to eat, yummy!

I guessed yogi! My mom always saves the best for last!

Balboa & Mommy said...

WHOA, you ate the bone and all within in seconds, you are amazing!

It all looks so yummy, I would have gone for the yougurt first too.

What worries me is that they make you eat outside in the pouring rain. Mummy tried giving me raw meat, but after fat fat daddy had saved me from choking, they gave up.

Hahaha! I guessed yogurt! I guesses yogurt! Woohoo! I knew it... But at first I guessed your mushed veggies but then & chose yogurt. But errrr... honestly, I don't know how you can eat those veggies. Does it taste good?

Johann The Dog said...

Very interesting!!! Think you go for the mushy stuff first, because it's faster? Then you can take your sweet (and I mean sweet, buddy!) time with your bones and meat?

That's what I'm thinkin'.

My Mum and I are very interested in your diet. Can you tell us more? After my bout with gastroenteritis, Mum is thinking about my diet (even though it's a fabulous kibble). She's adding in yogurt with my kibble now and gives me an occasional cottage cheese.

We'd love to learn more!

And thanks so much for voting for me, I really, really appreciate it!

Faya said...

!!!! moi aussi en premier je mange le yoghurt ou le cottage cheese..... les légumes....heu bof non pas je n'aime pas les oeufs...
J'espère que la pluie va s'arrêter chez toi pour le week-end. Gros bisous, Ta Faya

Sir Chance-Lot said...

THAT looks like a REAL dinner to me!!! YUMMY!

Maggie said...

I wanted you to eat the egg first - but you saved the best for last!

Love ya lots,

Well hi there Oscar, one of my brothers was named Oscar before he went to his new human home.

Nice to meet a fellow terror. I like my food too, my favourite crunchies are carrots.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Oscar.
I was waiting for you to eat that egg and you left it for last!
I am drooling! I only get dry kibble! Well, ocasionally a snack but thats it!
Have a nice day

Casper said...

Wow! Your food looks really good! Can I come and live with you? Pleeaaasssse.....

Peanut said...

Well you are saving the best for last of course.

Stanley said...


I was guessing it would be the egg or the yogurt, but that oxtail was looking mighty mighty tasty.

My girl is seriously researching the switch to raw. I'll email you with some of her questions. I want to make the switch but she's still on the fence.

Goober love, man!

Agatha and Archie said...

Wow Oscar we are drooling!It looks delicious!! We started out on a raw diet but now PL1+1 sort of cook the meat! We love yogurt and veggies too!!!!! There isn't a veggie we don't love!!! You should maka a commercial as you make it sound so lovely!! Your 2 hungry pals in Boston,Agatha+Archie

Suki said...

I guessed right, Oscar! I knew you'd go for the veggies first because you know it will make your hair curly! Oh, already is.

OK, you knew it would put hair on your chest! Oh, yeah, you already have that, too. I guess you've really been eating a lot of veggies, huh? Hehehe!

PreciOus said...

Hi Oscar, you are a good boy to eat your yogurt and green stuff first. I wouldn't know which to choose.


HHHHarry said...

Hiya Oscar,
That looks so yummy, I'm drooling, but my Mum won't let me have anything except a special veterinary diet, cos since my problems my tummy's not been right on anything else.

Girl Girl Hamster said...

You're a good doggie for eating your veggies Oscar.. I love yogurt too will you share some with me?

~ girl girl

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Oscar,
I think the only stuff I'd eat from your dinner would be the yogurt and vegetables (which i love strangely). I haven't tried BARF diet before. But I do get tofu (beancurd) in my kibbles. LOL!

Ben_Benjamin said...

Yummy yummy !!!

fee said...

oscar, u're making me drool!

Reina said...

My mum had to hold on to the chicken when feeding me, coz if left alone, i will drag the chicken ard and dirty the floor!
I tried raw egg once and i farted real smelly :p

Baily said...

mommy couldn't wait to see you eat the egg

i think we should trade food bowls, yours looks yummier!

nose licks

ChaCha & Yuki said...

hey oscar! how could you?? the chicken n oxtail are much better than yogurt n mushed veggies!!

hehe but to tell you the truth, i love veggies too! i love munching veggies, never tried mushed up ones. i should try some one day.


PerfectTosca said...

Crimminy Oscar, I'm drooling here! I eat half raw so I know how good all those things taste but your mom's presentation skills are EXCELLENT! I'm drooling all over myself.

I love my raw meat and veggies and yogurt too! But I like my carrots whole and raw! Arrrrrrrrooooooo.

Stop by and see me during blogathon tomorrow. I'm gonna do a feature on my generous buddy Oscar.

We thought for sure that you would go for the meat first. My Pa-Pa gave me a mild pepper out of the garden the other day and I will have to admit that it tasted pretty good. I ate the whole thing.

Enjoy those yummy dinners you get.

Love, Seadra and Zoe

The fat chicken drumstick look real yummy. We thought you will go for the meat first..hehe. look like we are wrong.

We got alot of catching up to do cos we havent been blogging for awhile. Nadya has been down with fever but she is fine now. We miss you :)

Jake of Florida said...

Wow, you are a regular gourmet. All we get is kibble and more kibble. If it weren't for treats of apple, celery, carrots, and the occasional popcorn, plus the peanut butter bedtime kong,we'd have very bored tummies.

We are truly impressed at your food selection.

We didn't realize you were so close to the floods, or we would have sent some good wishes sooner -- we're glad you're all OK now.

Jake and JH
