Cricket week 12

Our Cane Corso Cricket is 12 weeks old now and she loves to eat, play and find sticks.

She eats 4 cups of food every morning and every evening. We buy a high protein puppy food with 28% protein and 20% fat. It is called Valu-pak and we buy it at the feed store by the 50# bag. I think it’s about $35.00.

Our daughter researches a lot of dog foods because the Cane Corso are high energy dogs and they need some really good high protein food. This one was better than the Iams  I was feeding the two boxers. I just put them all three on the puppy/ active dog food.

She was 20#s at 8 1/2 weeks and now at 12 weeks is weighing in at 37#s. She has gained 17#s in a month lol. That seems like an awful lot but she is not fat just stocky and she has a thick body.

She likes to sit or lay down during picture time so much for showing off her physique.

Zoee and her spend a lot of time wrestling so she can be quite active when she wants to be. They have a hole they dig in and they love tug of war with sticks and chase.

Her blue eyes are starting to change colors they will end up being a Goldy brownish color. She had on one of Daisy’s collars in this picture so it was too big. I need to order her a new collar I hate trying to figure out the collar colors. I need to get her a name tag as well with my cell number on it.

Actually, I need to get all 3 dogs chipped.

We expect her to be a minimum of 125# pounds but it could be more she is much stockier than her sister is. We thought the sister would be bigger than her.

Cricket the monster dog will be showing up occasionally to give you all updates of how much she has grown.

      1. He eats 1 1/2 dollars a day in cheap Purina American made dog food. My little great-niece tried to feed him raw as a pup but it was costing her almost 30.00 a week after a couple of weeks of that she went to dog food. It might be cheaper than that now because I only feed him once a day now because he was eating all of Lucy’s food. He is more of a hog than a dog when it comes to food.

      2. I have never fed raw before I have no doubt these 3 would love it lol. The Valu Pak is made in Memphis. TN. I only buy USA for the dogs and the cats. Its so hard to find rawhides made in the USA but I can find them.
