As the owner of a soft-coated Wheaten Terrier with a sensitive stomach there were lots of things she couldn't eat. We lost her, at age 14 yr, back in the winter. So, she had a good life. She could only eat dry food, unless it was canned for sensitive stomachs. Rich foods, greasy foods, fatty foods, things dogs like, made her toss her cookies every time.

There is a different kind of food regimen for professional K-9s (dogs) who expend great amounts of energy and must have good strong bones. I spent some time talking with a dog food manufacturer 's representative while researching about diet for these dogs. The specialty foods for very active K-9s include dense protein with balanced ingredients so that the dogs digest a higher percentage of nutrients and expel less waste. Fewer fillers than in regular dog food. That way the dogs also eat less. I had never thought about the fact that a kennel with lots of dogs would think of doggy poo in terms of how many pounds were week get shoveled. And how those shovel fulls represent undigested matter.

When professional K-9s are feed is important as well. Dogs have a hammock-like stomach that swings. When full, running and jumping can cause the stomach to flip. That can result in death if the dog isn't taken immediately to a vet for surgery. So, police dogs get feed after their shift and again at least five hrs before their next duty. FBI are fed by handler's hand only so they earn their calories in rewards all day long. Other professional handlers use a mix of the above feeding programs.

Hope that answers your question. Thanks for asking, Samantha.

Sometimes a block comes because I'm trying too hard. I've blocked myself into a corner. Reading how another author has come at her or his storyline often frees up my own imagination. That corner is really only slef-imposed. I have options.
The really tough times with writers' block often require me to stop writing for several days, sometimes more, and do something absolutely different. Sooner or later the story comes whispering to me like a siren.(less)

D.D.’s Recent Updates

“She kissed him tonight, just like she had the first time twelve years ago, with everything she had.”
D.D. Ayres, Rival Forces

“She scooted up tighter and kissed him, hearing the stomp and rhythm of lust pulse in her blood. A rhythm as primitive as time.”
D.D. Ayres, Rival Forces

“Then he was on her, pushing her back onto the bedding, pushing his knee between hers as he balanced himself over her on his hands.

He paused. "I'm going to need a little help here."

"With what?"

"Your panties."

Jori looked down her body and then up into his face just inches from hers. "Use your teeth.”
D.D. Ayres, Primal Force
