Meet Henry

This is our little house guest for a few days. He goes home late this afternoon. Henry is a picky eater but I finally figured out his problem. His food is tasteless! Sooooooo, I've been doctoring it up. This morning I poured hot soy milk left over from my latte over his cold wet food from the fridge and I mixed some of Webster's kibble along with the awful stuff he brought. Henry became a member of the 'Clean Plate Club' for the very first time ever this morning! See that wagging tail? I think he wants more.

Henry is a fortunate boy. Hmm . . . I am thinking that I might show up on your doorstep with empty bowl in hand. Rosemary, the Cottage definitely is 5 star lodging for local canines with Webster as host and you as personal chef.
Happy fall weekend

I swear, Rosemary, you spoil every dog you come in contact with.

I think you're a clone of James Herriot.

Linda and Gail...

We are in great demand as dog sitters. Wonder why?

xo, Webster and Rosemary

His master must be trying to keep him slim and trim (obvious from your picture of him), but slim and trim doesn't mean it can't be tasty and nutritious. Good job, Rosemary! Henry will be wanting to come back again and again.

Yes his diet is designed to keep him trim but he is actually underweight and he's just a puppy. I like to see them eat with gusto.

Did you taste his food to see if it was indeed tasteless? Or did Webster help?

Content in a Cottage said..., Angela, I didn't taste the gray low fat canned food. This little guy needs a little fat on his bones. Even Webster who eats anything isn't wild about trying to steal Henry's food.

poor little soul.
he got a glimpse of puppyfood heaven and now he'll go back to yukky grey stuff.
did you tell his owners?
i hope you did!
puppies need to grow bones and strong muscles. it's NOT the time to diet. GOOD GRIEF.

Tam...I'll tell his mom when she picks him up. You are so right. He can diet should he ever get fat and I doubt he ever will.

Vicki said...

Oh, dear wee Henry. I love Cavs.

Like Tam, I hope his mum takes on your advice. She should. For his sake.

And, she should also look at Webster as a shining example of happy, healthy 'puppy'!

..I have a habit of calling dogs 'pups' - even the senior cits :)

I hope his owner will change his food too. Mealtime should be joyful, even for a dog.

I'm with Gail. You're a James Herriot clone for sure.
