A Fish Story

Hi friends! I am patiently – yes, this is my patient look, Mom – waiting for my whole fish supper tonight. Well, it’s almost whole. Someone scooped the really good insides out of it. See, this is what happened: Mom went to the grocery on her way home from work last week and came home with more yummy raw food for me. She is always doing that. 🙂 She asked Dad if he was ok feeding it to me, ’cause she didn’t have the stomach for it. Isn’t that funny? I’m the one who has to have the stomach for it, BOL. To Mom’s surprise, Dad said yes. I could smell something really good, so I followed Dad outside to see what it was. He laid down a long plate in the grass and slid something I had never seen before onto it from a plastic bag. Dad said it was my supper. It was curious looking with eyeballs still in a head still attached to a body that ended in a fin. I licked it for a while, not quite sure what to do. Then I started nibbling at the middle section. I eventually worked my way north and then finished off with the south end. I’m telling you, this fish was almost as long as my tail.

After that, Mom decided that Monday was my “fast” day. Yes, I run very fast. I don’t know why that means no one feeds me on Mondays until supper, though. Dad said that meant they should give me my next big fish on Sunday night to “hold” me. Yuk! I don’t want no fish holding me. I just wanna eat it.

Wait, I smell something fishy.

Hello there, fishy.

 

Hmmm, you smell a bit different today. More fishy.

 

Here’s a little kiss for luck (he, he).

 

Oh, a fishy tail. You could be fun to play with.

Lucy: Mom, oh Mom…
Me: What is it Lucy?
Lucy: I don’t want to eat this fish. And I keep having to chase the flies off of it.
Jeff: It might have sat in the fridge too long.
Me: *sigh* Please go wrap it up and throw it in the trash bin.
Note: Lucy ended up eating chickie breast, Tylee’s Raw Beef Diet, and an egg. We have one more fish that’s in the freezer, so will try it next Saturday.

    • Your Mom is right. Some dogs do not do well with dietary changes, which is why most prepared foods as well as changing to a raw diet always advise a slow change. And some dogs cannot tolerate certain foods, period. I have been extremely fortunate in having dogs who can eat just about anything any time. Oh, and you should have smelled Lucy’s gas before we switched her to a raw diet. OMG! She cleared the room every night and sometimes I woke up almost gagging from it!

    • Shoko, you’re a cat, right? Cats LOVE fish! I liked the first one, but Mom couldn’t even bring herself to take pictures. She was ready this time, but I didn’t like this one. It didn’t taste right. ~Lucy

  1. When Mom was a little girl – her family had a rental cabin right on the beach in Oregon. Her Dad would make sardine sandwiches which just about made Mom and Grandma HURL. UGH. She still is not a fan of fish unless it has beer batter on it with fries and tater sauce.
