You mean I still can't lick your plate??
It's becoming more routine now dealing with Chance's limited diet. It is still hard to resist not giving him some goodie I know he loves, but 99% if the time I refrain.
My husband, Mark has been doing much better than me since this diet started 3 months ago. He has stuck to Chance's diet and given him the approved foods he can have. It took some time for me to come around and I think it was more of a challenge for me because it was about the sharing and bonding Chance and I were doing when we ate together.
And how has Chance been handling it?
Once Chance learned he wasn't getting any food, he goes to his bed and hangs out there while we eat. Which is great. Takes the pressure off of everybody. He's allowed vegetables for treats and we always share some with him after we are done eating.
Chance is a counter surfer and always has been, but now he is doing it all the time. He even picks up odd ball stuff off the counters and table that are not edible, just to hoard. It is really starting to bother me because he's never touched any of these things before and is getting a bit obnoxious about it. We have a camera in the kitchen to keep an eye on him, which has helped out greatly catching him in the act.
Hopefully this phase of his diet will be over soon. In the meantime we are doing the best we can with Chance and hoping to get some answers with his next urine test, that in itself is a whole different ballgame. More later!
