Ever since I started chemo, nothing tastes the same. I’ve been giving Mom a hard time, not eating. A few days ago, Mom tried to feed me my wet dog food by hand. I spit it out. Then Mom tried to feed me my favorite cottage cheese by hand. I spit it out. (Mom ended up with sticky food all over her hands and clothes. YUCK!) I did eat some vanilla yogurt. I also like organic fig cookies (I think Mom hides pills in them, but I still like them).
Finally, Mom got Paul Newman’s organic canned Chicken. Guess what! I like it!!! I ate some Wed. night and I ate nearly an entire can last night. Mom did a taste test: Taste of the Wild canned duck on one side of my bowl (which I used to love) and Paul Newman’s organic canned Chicken on the other side. I ate all of the PN Chicken. Later, Mom tried to fool me by mixing some of the PN Chicken in with the duck…but I wouldn’t eat it.
Mom was very HAPPY that I ate last night. I only eat a little bit at a time. I barked for more food at 2am and at 4am. When the PN Chicken was gone, Mom gave me some really good sliced turkey. Then I threw up about 10 minutes later!!!!! Maybe I ate too much.
I have to be careful, because I have irritable bowel syndrome and I get diarrhea really easily. Mom tries to limit the fat in my food to 3% or less. The Paul Newman Chicken is 6% fat (maybe that’s why I like it)!
Mom would really like it if I didn’t wake her up all night long. She’s got big circles under her eyes now. She’s hoping that if I sleep in the big bed with her, maybe I won’t get up so many times at night. We’ll see!
P.S. Mom says she loves me very much. She tells me that every day. Even when I spit food out.
