    Don't worry, I promise you these were the plainest, dullest, most tasteless potatoes you've ever seen in your life. :cheshire: And once Mr. Potato Thief was done, there was barely a spoonful left for Madelyn.

    The collies eat pretty much anything, their favourite being a freshly laid egg from the hens, shell and all. So I was astonished last night to see the new potatoes being carefully picked out of their bowls and dropped on the floor. Sky went to nibble it rather distatefully and ate a small portion, sniffed the rest and walked off. Buzz looked at me as if to say Oi! You trying to poison us?! I gave them to the hens.....they loved them!

    OK, we'll start early this year...

    I've been thru it personally with two pugs, and it is a horror story. PLEASE everyone be careful what people food you give your pugs. 1 potato chip to a pug is a whole bag to us... And most foods are wayyyy too rich.

    I almost lost Louisie years ago to pancreatitis. (hubby wouldn't stop feeding table food to T&L) You'll notice I got rid of him more than 6 years ago, and kept the pugs!

    Beau developed it last year all on his own... No table food involved. He now eats a low-cal diet with a spoonful of plain, fat-free yogurt on top. He considers the yogurt a treat! It is a great thing to fool them with!

    Agreeing with all Viralmd says, as always, I would just like to add that Delilah contracted pancreatitis within four hours of being given a cortisone injection, and I believe (and the specialist vet agreed too) that cortisone can be responsible...... here's a bit from a website..............there is no way Delilah would ever be given this drug again.




    What causes it?
    The cause of pancreatitis is not known; however, there may be several contributory factors. It is often associated with a rich, fatty meal. In some cases, it may be associated with the administration of corticosteroid drugs however, some dogs with pancreatitis do not have exposure to either.

    I think that particular incident was out of your control! Those pugs sure can move when they want to, heh??
