Cricket is 8 months old

Cricket was 8 months on October 2nd.

I am still guessing her weight to be about 115#s. Hopefully we can get by the vet or Petsmarts scale soon.

She is still growing and her appetite is increasing.

We wake up around 4 -5:00 a.m. and its doggie potty time. By 5:30 a.m. Crickets whining and moaning for breakfast. Daisy and Zoee do not do this but Cricket is very vocal with her opinions.

Cricket gets 3 cups dry food plus one heaping tablespoon of canned mixed up with 1/8 cup water 2 x a day. She does the same moaning and whining for evening food around 4:00 p.m.

Zoee and Daisy get 1 1/2 cups 2 x a day mixed with water and the heaping tablespoon of canned food.

Daisy had to go back on her Iiams dog food but now she is on healthy weight version. She was getting to be square no curves lol. I think the other food is to high or protein for her at her age. She is easy going so the transition went just fine.

Jeanelle and I read about dry food causing bloat so now our dogs get it mixed with a little water usually about 1/8 cup water seems to be working out well for everyone.

The dogs have been enjoying the cooler weather and seem to be spending more time outdoors that is a good thing for Cricket and Zoee who are always rowdy and wrestling.

Daisy is calmer and prefers to be where we are she likes keeping an eye on us.

We take turns letting the dogs walk down the road with us and they all enjoy that. It is a disaster to take all 3 at the same time.

We switched everyone to the martingale collars I like the design it slips over their head and tightens if they are pulling on a leash. Since our dogs do not wear collars full time they get so excited to see the collar and leash and start doing jumping flips. The collars come in different widths and Crickets is the wider one the boxers the narrow one. I found ours on Amazon they had some nice aztec patterns.

Life is good in our 3 dog family we just go through a lot of dog food with Crickets appetite.

    1. YES she does like to eat. We are going through 100#s of dog food a month we buy the high protein at the feed store for $30.00 a bag for 50#s. The Two boxers together eat what she eats in a day lol.
