Our beloved Akela died almost three years ago. If you’d like to know a little more about her “talents” and maybe just a few tiny flaws, here is a post I did then.
And, if you happen to have a dog that needs to lose weight, you might want to try the diet I told about in that post:
About 6 years ago, the Vet told us that Akela Jane needed to lose a little weight (actually about 10 lbs.). (It runs in the family!) So, a friend told me the trick of replacing a cup of a dog’s dry dog food with canned green beans, to cut down on their calories. We did it and it worked! The Vet was amazed. And, after she had lost the weight we continued to replace a half cup of her food with beans, because she liked them so much. She thought they were a treat! Go figure.
If you try this diet for your dog, I hope it works as well for you as it did for us.
By the way, if you happen to have recently lost a pet and are grieving for them, take heart. We loved and adored Akela like no other pet we had ever had. But there does come a time, as it is now for us, when the pain of loss fades and you are just left with wonderful memories.
