A group of role playing blogs has been reblogging a picture of Lara and tagging it as one of the people’s pets or something lol. I am both honored and amused.

more mealtime photos. Doesn’t the bone broth look gross? :P

Oh man, I bet my dogs would love bone broth. I bet that would make a great stuffer for Kongs too.

It’s always the first thing she eats out of the bowl lol. It would make a great stuffer!! It’s already so jello-like when it’s cold, but you can freeze it too ^_^ I’m actually going to steal that idea, I havent filled her kong with anything in a long time after discovering that peanut butter does not agree with her stomach.

Hi - calling all raw feeders!

There is a new study this guy is starting that will last the life of your dog. Basically he’s trying to get the first solid evidence that raw feeding can cause an increase in lifespan. I signed Lara up! Once a year you will give progress reports about your dog :)

He also is doing a study about cancer prevention. Feel free to check out his site :)

Awesome, finally some benefit related research is on the horizon. Funding is the only reason why it hasnt happened sooner (Purina certainly wouldnt fund it) so its good that someone has initiated it.

I signed up my boy! :)

From the website:

Disclaimer: I’m not a medical professional and the advice I provide is based on 15 years of private research and personal experience

I wouldn’t say a guy with no apparent scientific training or higher education (that he mentions) is going to get you “solid evidence” about anything.

Sorry for my usage of the term “solid evidence” but to be honest I don’t really care if his stuff never gets published due to his background, I just think it’s cool that he is bringing a community of people together and I know plenty of people who would enjoy reading the results of his study. 

Obviously the study has many flaws, the first and major one being that there is no control group and the experimental groups (raw feeding) differ for each participant - there is no legitimate statistical analysis he could do with that. I just think it is unique and awesome that he’s STARTING the research and something like this could open up the eyes to a lot of professionals out there if they were intrigued by any results he could get. Something like this could lead to something far greater and controlled. 

Sure he is not a professional but I commend his effort to step research in the right direction and I apologize for saying “solid evidence” but I was just really excited to see research heading towards this. Anecdotal evidence would be a better term. I like hearing about individuals’ successes.

People are quick to judge and point fingers at people with conditioned dog’s stating that those dog’s are emaciated or far to skinny when this is not true.
If a dog is severally underweight it canNOT produce muscle mass as seen on conditioned dogs.
In this day and age people are so used to seeing overweight dog’s that they believe that is normal for a dog…even some vets will think an overweight dog is healthier then a lean or conditioned dog. 
So here’s a diagram showing that lateral muscles do not equal ribs.

This picture sums up her personality. You dont get much sassier than that. 
(Also I think her foot is better. She was fine for a week and I saw her lick it once but now I am paranoid and I am not taking a single chance. That yeast though, dude, took forever to get rid of. Ended up using vaginal yeast cream and it did the job. ^_^ )
