My dogs have usually been picky eaters until Bud came around. LOL- He is a FAST eater and the vet suggested that I feed him half of his portion of food and then give him the rest when he's done with that. It worked really well and he doesn't wolf it down much anymore. Gracie is very dainty and eats one or two peices at a time. It takes her a while. LOL

I have noticed that shelter/rescue dogs usually gobble their food quickly.

I totally agree- The rescue where we got Bud said that he used to eat cat food??? Don't know if he had to steal the cat's food or what but he is definitely food oriented.
How old was Emmy when you adopted her?

Emmy was about 6 months old when I got her - completely untrained since was running wild on the reservation.

Layla will only eat her food if someone is in the same room that her food is in.

There's always a gobbler in the bunch.

I feed my dogs separately to avoid temptation and to resist the gobbling especially when I feed the chicken gizzards and hearts which is their favorite meal.

I think Spencer was fed a partially raw diet when he raced.

Well, obviously Emmy wanted to be with you :) Some things are just meant to be.


Does she still have some of the rescue "behaviors" after all this time? Bud has been here for almost 3 years and he still is nutty about his food. Loud noises sometimes still make him run for his crate and he's very clingy with me. Men in baseball hats
