Cleveland or Bust!

I'm off to Cleveland this weekend for the much anticipated ClickerExpo!

I'm extremely excited...although I'm going dogless and will miss my little Jagoffs terribly. And Scotty too, of course.

As I am the one that usually feeds them, I have to leave him details of what they eat.

Now in a normal day, they'll get at each meal:

Sherman - 1/2 cup Solid Gold (that's the one that is small discs)
Lola - 1 - 1 & 1/2 cups Solid Gold
Penny - 1 - 1 & 1/2 cups Eagle Pack (the little dark brown nuggets)

plus some canned food (I try to mix it up):

Sherman - 1/6 of a can
Penny & Lola - twice as much as Sherman

and some days they get Salmon, Jack Mackerel or their favorite (not mine)...canned green tripe.

I know Scott won't even bother with this so I'm not giving amounts!

Shermie gets some supplements:

1 glucosamine capsule (break it open) 1x per day
500 mg Vit C 2x per day
1 cranberry pill 2x per day

*Shermie is older and has some bladder issues (creaky joints & a tendency to get blood in his pee aka Struvite Crystals)

The girls get 1 capful raw, unpasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar 2x per day (for digestion and Lola's tear stains)

and every one gets the following once per day:

Vitamine E
Fish Oil
Coconut Oil

Again, not listing the amounts...he's not gonna do it!

Lola tends to have a sensitive belly, so if she's feeling a little "loose"...she can have boiled burger & cottage cheese for a couple meals, plus pumpkin & Berte's Digestive Blend (1 level scoop).

Don't forget the fun game we play at meal time!!

And Don't Overfeed Sherman!!
(Scotty thinks he can become Sherman's favorite if he gives him really big giant meals...not gonna work!)

So no blogging till Monday...don't forget about us!!!

Wowzers! That sounds like a ton of food! How many times a day do you get to eat? Can I come over?
We get three meals a day, plus cookies. And a banana snack. My daily total food is a little more than a cup of Eukanuba. And some Total cereal now. Mmm.
Play bows,
