Well I tried the kibble tonight as I told Torrie I would haha!!! First I tried the Science Diet. Imagine really really really stale Fritos. That’s what they felt like. I managed to crunch it and then spit it out. I think cardboard would be better. There was no taste. Actually if there was anything, it was almost chemical. Not like an obvious chemical taste, but I’d have to say it was along those lines.
The Blue Buffalo had the same texture but the taste was more pleasant, if you can call it that. There was a hint of fish and berries. At least it has flavor. I also just crunched and spit it out. So, curiosity satisfied. You may now call me a freak, I won’t mind. 😉
Jayden is just off today. I have no idea if it has anything to do with the food switch or if he’s having an off day like we all do occasionally. The morning route to the store was awful. He didn’t want to go down the road again and that hasn’t happened in forever. It was so bad I got my cane out and had him heel. He wouldn’t hardly move so I stopped, had him heel and sit and then we set off again and he kept a good heel while I caned it down the road. There was no way I was having him do the street crossing when he was being that sluggish, so I crossed that and then put the cane away. After that he worked like a champ. It’s just something about going down our road. He did fine in the store, following the clerk. He did fine getting us back home and navigating around a large work truck with a trailor. He showed me the truck and then the trailor.
I have no idea what’s up with that road, why all of the sudden he didn’t want to walk it again. There’s just no apparent reason for it. Ugh.
Then, Carol stopped by. Jayden was snoozing on the couch when she got here so he didn’t hear her coming up and therefore didn’t go all nuts when she came in. The rest of the day he was just blah. He even lost interest in the Kong Wobbler when there was still food inside. Until it was time for feeding. He got all excited. Also, when I gave him the frozen Kong after the walk he went nuts and actually ran around the house with it.
So, I don’t know. I’ll see how he is for our nightly play session that we always have before bed.
Is this a normal thing during a food switch, or is it just coincidence? He’s had days like this before. I’ve been energetic and cheerful today, so it’s not anything he’s picking up from me.
