Today I am a bit sluggish. I stayed up late and had to wake up at 6 a.m. to let Cobra out. I, of course, went back to bed and when I woke up this morning, my allergies went into overdrive. I really can't see as I'm writing this, due to watering eyes, and I have used 3 Kleenex's since the last two sentences. *ugh*
On to other news.
I have always wondered, as everyone else who meets Cobra, why he is so tall and lanky. I first thought it just to be part of the growing process, but as he gets older he just stays the same. When I tell people he eats 8 cups a day they are in shock, because their dogs only eat 3 or 4. I've talked to Lab owners and breeders and they switch their pups to adult dog food when they are 7 or 8 months old, because the puppy food, I guess, jumpstarts the pups growth and when you are dealing with large breed pups that grow alot anyway, jumpstarting them isn't the best.
KSDS sends Science Diet free of charge to its puppy raisers and they send the large breed puppy formula. I think what I will do is ask the PR coordinator if I can have the adult food shipped to me to see if I can improve his weight. Eating 8 cups a day and staying the same weight, just seems a little odd, soI will see wat I can do.
