Sorry about not posting for a little while but things get crazy when it starts getting nice out. Nicholas has been hanging out at the park, going for walks, you know, all that dog stuff. Anyway, I have a little story to tell about him. Friday, on my way home from out of town, my husband called me and asked me if I would be passing a pet store. I was not even close to one but asked why. He told me that my youngest son's friend came over with a bag that was tied shut with a little water in it and a snail to boot. He wanted to show my son his new pet and then sat the bag down and took off to play. My husband told him not to sit it down because it could get torn up. Oh well, they took off anywany and our dog Nicholas came to investigate this bag. He apparantly grabbed the bag, tore it up and ate the snail. Yuck. My husband proceeded to tell me that he looked up information about this and it could give a dog heartworm but we give Nicholas heartworm medication every month so we are safe there and he was just tested for it and we are in the clear. He also said that he could get runny stools from it so we kept and eye on him for a few days. Well, it has been 7 days since this happened and the vet doesn't seem too concerned so I think hes okay.
Now, about something new. His food. He currently eats Purina Little Bites but I found Nutro Ultra Holistic Superfood and started mixing it with his current food. Now I like the idea of no ground corn in there. Its packed full of good stuff for Nicholas. I have to run but I will tell you more about it later. Chow for now.
