When I injured my ankle 10 years ago, and while being in a recliner for more than 6 months between 2 surgeries, I let him eat off of my plate. He was my protector. I was so doped up, I didn't realize what was happening or was amused at the situation. He will NOT eat normal dog food since. And later on since the divorce, I feed him very healthy food which makes me eat the same. The vet techs are jealous when they hear what he gets. I've tried brushing.....nope. He doesn't do chew treats but usually hides them in the furniture or in the backyard. As far as full blood and urine tests, he is very healthy... and mischievous, just won't eat kibble. Again.....my fault.
