How they differ

Dinner: One raw turkey leg per beagle. Almost a pound and a half each. BIG treat. A very light dinner tomorrow night.

Marvin finishes his turkey leg in approximately 20-25 minutes. He means business. He's a professional carnivore.

Diesel works on his turkey leg from 5:30-8PM. I finally trade him for a little piece of beef heart, scooping up his "left-overs" with a plastic bag to be finished tomorrow.

They were sleeping soundly, happily digesting, until they heard Mark take the cheese out of the fridge. Despite the full tummies, apparently there is always room for cheese.

Woooooo buddies, long time no blog! Wow, turkey legs, you're so lucky :o)
Gabbi can eat a chicken wing in about 5 seconds, three chews and it's gone....Rosie takes hers away to eat it in private, she likes to chew each mouthful eleventy-seven times!
Good to see ya!

Uh yes, Xsara is the same - there's always room for cheese! She would do anything for it, so I'm using it for treats now that she can't have any processed food. The result is incredible!

It's interesting how each not only have their own personalities, but have different table manners :)

For some reason my Daizy can easily convince me that nope, I must not have filled her kong with as much as I did everyone elses...and she looks very serious when she brings it to me empty as proof. One of us must have the early stages of Alzheimer's....

She's always the first to Houdini the food out of a jam packed kong. Even my raw food kongsicles!!!! pretty much everyday I think...aha! this kong will last long enough for me to enjoy a relaxing but very much needed cup of Joe to get me kick started in the morning.....but I have yet to enjoy that relaxing coffee!

No pics of turkey leg eating? :) Amos can easily eat 3 lbs of food and still show interest in cat poop. Amazing. He usually eats quickly because Waverli is always pestering him, pawing his food and stalking him.

Hi Heather,

I know! No turkey leg eating photos! I've been meaning to post more about our raw adventures but I've been lazy with the blog. I'll get to it though! Turkey legs might be on the menu this weekend, although the ones I have now are a bit smaller.

Beagles certainly are first-class chow hounds!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sorry, this is not really a reply to your post but it's the only way I could think of to make personal contact with you!

I'm sitting up reading your blog at 2:50 AM with my BREW foster beagle asleep on my lap. Her GI tract was making some alarming noises after she woke me up at 2:30 wanting to go outside - all she did was pee and try to eat some grass so I decided to stay up for a while and catch up on my favorite blogs when I found your recent post on Heather's Raw Truth! Well when I saw that you have a rescue beagle and live in Wisconsin I thought "Hmm, I wonder if they adopted from BREW?"

Well I couldn't pass up a learning opportunity when you listed your own blog address and, of course it didn't take long after that to discover that you did, indeed, adopt from BREW!

So I am writing as not only a beagle lover but as a BREW foster mom who is also a raw feeder and WDJ subscriber!!! I hope we can be e-friends for now, and that I will have a chance to meet you at Beaglefest 2009 - it's back at the same location it was in 2007 (Hinckley Park pool, Park Ridge, IL) on Saturday, May 16. BREW hasn't officially announced that yet, but one of the organizers posted the info to the volunteer group a few weeks ago.

I raw fed my first foster, Dolly. She was about 7 months old when she came to us and took to it like a fish to water. I kept a daily journal of her meals and gave the information to her new family at her adoption on January 4. Without going into details here, suffice to say that I'm quite sure she's back to eating doom nuggets. :-(

So I decided henceforth to feed "high quality commercial dog food" (just reading that statement makes me want to roll my eyes and snicker). That's a very interesting story that I will have to tell you later because I think it's time to try to get more sleep now ...

Wow what a treat - turkey legs! We can't even mention the words cheese, milk or icecream in our house for fear of sending Jazz and Dixie into crazy pogo sticks!
