My Little Secret



I have a secret - shhhhh!!!



Misty and Lightning don't know my secret.  If you come close and promise not to tell them, I will share my secret with you.



I am too skinny, or so the Momster says.  We all get fed twice a day, at or about 6:00 a.m. and at or about 5:00 p.m.  Every now and then Mom catches me having the horka horka right before dinner - and I hack up a small pile of bile.  She says I am like Angel Phantom in so many ways, this being one of them.  She is hoping I am not going to be prone to pancreatitis like he was, but she thinks my tummy doesn't like to be empty.  So now for my secret - I get a small bowl of kibble at lunchtime out on the deck all by myself.  Mom thinks this might help stop the horka horka thingie if I get something in my tummy midday.  I ate it up so quickly that Mom couldn't get a pic of me eating.  Remember it is a secret - hush hush!!!



And Mom, while you are busy there snapping photos, how about adding a bit more to my very small bowl? After all I AM a growing boy!!!



Don't let Timber make you think we don't know something is going on - we can smell kibble on his breath!!!  But as long as Mom doubles up on our "nice posing" treats, we will be OK.

Woos - Timber (and Misty and Lightning)

The yellow bile is usually a sign of an empty tummy. Good for you. Enjoy you food.

The Gang at LLB said...

That bile thing happens around here with Rosy...and it also happened with Angel's Dory and Bilbo...so Mama gives us small meals through out the day....Unfortunately a certain Shih Tzu(Arty) is getting a little chubsy wubsy, and Mama is having to rethink things....

That's why we get yogurt at bedtime. Porties vomit up yellow bile if our tummies go empty. Mom doesn't like hearing that sound in the early morning hours, so she makes sure we have our bedtime snack.

Abby was super skinny when we got her and didn't gain weight like we hoped for. We found feeding her grain free food (Blue Buffalo) and giving her a 1/4 to a 1/3 cup of yogurt (vanilla, sweetened only with sugar, not sugar substitutes which can be deadly for pups) every evening a couple hours after her kibble really improved her digestion and she's at a healthy weight now.

Your secret is safe with us too! We've had the same issue from time to time, and I think it's a great idea that you get to sneak a meal. I hope it works! Let us know, okay?

Ruby said...

Seriously, I gets that sometimes too, butts it's usually in the morning, and I try to tell Ma that she needs to gives me more evening snackies, so my tummy isn't empty, butts does she listen....NO! sigh.

This is the exact same thing that Pierre does!!! I feed them at about the same times you do but it is the mornings that make his tummy grumbly. I changed back to Dr. Harvey's Canine Health and cut out fish. His tummy is doing much better. I still give them both a little something when they get me up at 5:00 a.m. to pee. That seems to hold him until breakfast.

Marg said...

Oh Timber, so glad you You all have a great weekend and Timber you feel better. WE have our paws crossed for you.

FiveSibesMom said...

Wooo....we've been away a bit, but couldn't wait to come back and visit you all! I hope that midday snack will help! You sure are a cutie pie and certainly do not need that horka-horka nonsense!

Wyatt Airedale said...

We won't tell your secret. We see some home cooking in your future! Fresh chicken and rice with some lovely veggies. What time is dinner?😋

Charliedownunder said...

Crikey ..... you get lunch???????? How good is that?? I'm going to start having a horka, horka episode just before tea too and maybe my Mum will give me lunch. I won't tell the others ..... honest!!!

Millie and Walter said...

Our mom says one of our Angel Sisters had that same problem so you aren't alone. You are so lucky to get a third meal though.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

hello timber its dennis the vizsla dog hay do not wurry i wil never tel!!! i hope yore tummy feels better tummy truble is no fun!!! ok bye

The Army of Four said...

Your secret's safe with us! Guess what? I get the horka hork in the morning if I don't get a bedtime snack and a piece of cheese. Oh. And there's something about Mom putting a Pepcid in the cheese, but I couldn't care less about that part. I just like the CHEESE! Maggie gets a placebo in her cheese! We also get fed three very small meals a day, which helps, too --- but Mom said not everyone can fit that into busy schedules.
Cammie!

Bouncing Bertie said...

No worries Timber, I promise I won't let on.
Toodle pip!
Bertie.
PS Best of luck with the weight gain. Gail and I have fingers and paws crossed that there's nothing badly wrong.

Crystal And Daisy Mae Stewart said...

Your secret is safe with Daisy Mae And I. We won't tell.

Tails Around the Ranch said...

Mum's the word...er lack of it. Hope the extra snack helps the tummy out.

KB Bear said...

One of our angels had that same issue! I love your secret. I hope that it helps.

I also love that you have some Phantom in you, Timber (but skip the pancreatitis part!).

Huskies622 said...

You are a growing boy and you need a little extra to keep you full! We won't tell!

Wild Dingo said...
