Ripley gets new food

I suppose it's an age thing, but Ripley has recently developed bad doggy gas. Sometimes, she'll run up the stairs and toot. It's kind of cute, because she'll stop and look around, as if to say, "What the heck was that." Not so cute is when she's curled up in my lap (as she is while I type this) and passes gas. At those times, she tries to play it off like nothing happened.

So, in the interest of her well-being and not having to smell dog farts, the S.O. and I took a trip to the pet store to look for a different food. She's been eating Iam's as long as I've had her, but lately it obviously isn't agreeing with her. The new food is a lamb and rice formula that contains no corn or soy. Apparently those two ingredients can mess with doggy digestion. We have to slowly introduce the new food, mixing it with the old, so it'll be at least a week before we know if the new food makes any difference. Let's hope it does.

While at the pet store, I replaced Ripley's old tag with a stylish new one. I usually try to go with more tough stuff, but this was so cute -- and the S.O. picked it out.
I know I've been posting about the dog a lot, but I don't have kids. This is all I have, people.

I like your pet stories. Most of the time they do funnier, cuter things than kids!!! I like Ripley!

I'm glad you like the pet stories, Rosie. I'm going to be watching a friend's dog over the holiday weekend so I bet I have some good ones coming soon.

What kind of dog? Coco has the bad gas too, but multiply little Ripleys 10x to imagine Coco's!!

Yep. Bigger the dog, bigger the stink.

My friend has a puppy Corgi. Very cute.
