What Yorkie's Like to Eat

Hi everybody! It's a new week, and I want to talk about food. I LOVE food, even food that isn't good for me. I don't care, as long as it tastes good...but sometimes even though it tastes good, later it makes me sick. So I've been listening to my owners talk to each other about what they are feeding me, and here's some of the things that I've heard them say:

  • Don't give Aspen cured or overly seasoned meats. Yep, that's right, those are the ones that taste so good, but always make me sick. And some cured meats have chemical additives in them than aren't even good for humans, so why feed them to me?

  • Don't change Aspen's dry food to a new food too quickly. Just recently they changed my dry food to another brand, and they gradually added a little bit to my old dry food, then a little bit more, then a little bit more, each time them fed me, so I gradually got used to the food.

  • Do consider food if Yorkies or dogs like me throw up a lot (I know, yuk, sorry about that), but only if you have changed foods in the past couple weeks. If we get sick a lot, we should be taken to the vet right away.

  • Do occasionally let us have a little bite of food when we beg for food at the table...well, actually I'm just throwing that one in. That's a really bad habit, but the big guy owner here who said that would never happen if he ever had a dog sneaks treats from his plate to me all the time. My most favorite is chicken!!!

Those are my tips for today, if I think of more, I'll let you know! Have a great day and a tail waggin' week!
