It is finally Friday and I am a bit tired, but this is what my grand dog Roxi looks like in the morning.

They are all still loving it. I am sort of playing with how much to feed them. When I get out the baggie, they whine in excitement.

She is precious. I've had Boston Terriers and LOVE them. I was considering a BT when I decided to get another cocker and got my Abby. Bostons are so stinking fun...playful clowns

Vivky, how much are you feeding Charlie each day? I was feeding both cockers 6 oz a day and Tucker is getting a bit heavy, which is a blessing in itself since it is hard to keep weight on him with his thyroid condition.

Deborah, I buy the 8 oz patties for Charlie and I give him 1/2 for breakfast and a bit more than 1/4 for supper. Most days he's getting approx 6 oz. Once in a while, I feed him a full patty in one day. Charlie's never been so fit in his life, perfect weight.

I think I need to cut it. My dogs are both nearly 10 and Tucker is the perfect couch potato. Roxi looks nice and fit and shiny. I still love this new food.

I've been using the medallions for ease but thinking about trying the patties. Are they as easy to feed? Do you cut them up? I was breaking up medallions but Zoey eats so fast I left them whole to make her chew and still she hoovers them up!

The patties take longer to thaw. I take them on a plate ad cut them with a metal spatula into eight little pie slices, I also smash them with a fork so no one chokes.
