[quote=Jeano]He sounds great! And very familiar!
Watch out for this ploy:
YOu put some food somewhere relatively reachable. Like, you are just about to sit down to dinner.
Suddenly Ike goes BARK BARK there's SOMEONE AT THE DOOR! And you go to the door to see what he's talking about and while you do that he eats your dinner.
Ole did this to me the second week I had him! Ike sounds just as determined to get food as Ole is!
How wonderful that he's lost so much weight, you are such a good dog mom.
Oh no, I may be a Sheltie person, but I am not a complete chump! ROFL Last year I gave my dining table to my mom (it was her mom's, and it's a lovely antique) and bought a cafe-type table with two chairs -- the table is high and the chairs are like bar-stool height. NO DOG in my house can reach what's on that table. In fact, it really reduced the cluster of dog spectators at my mealtimes!
Further update on Ike's consumption of the digestive enzymes on Friday night: they were in little foil packets, and I found some of the packets on the floor when I got home. Saturday I found a few MORE of the packets, they appeared out of nowhere and they were wet and disfigured by teeth marks.
Last night Ike produced still a few more of the foil packets: he urped them up! I guess I assumed he'd poop them out, but he's regurgitating them at intervals, all the while continuing to eat his meals and have normal stools (well, a bit runny, but I attribute that to the sudden exuberance of bacteria and enzymatic activity in his gut).
I could do without this drama, frankly! OTOH, I have found that Resolve carpet cleaner is wizard at removing urp stains from a jute rug, and that's good to know.
