It’s been a tough couple days for my dogs. They both had some sort of stomach bug that had them going to the bathroom like a dozen times Thursday overnight. It was bad. The only thing I can think of is that maybe a can of food they had was bad. It’s canned food they eat all the time, but it was a new can the day they got sick so maybe that was it. I promptly threw away the rest of it. Anyway just when I thought they were better I wake up 24 hours later and my pekingese decides she is on a hunger strike. Urgh that’s a true sign a dog is sick so I got a little worried. Then I took her outside and all she wanted to do was lick grass and try to eat it. She doesn’t want to eat food, but she wants to eat grass? I googled “dog licking grass” and I found this could be a sign that she indeed has a tummy ache. Some people say eating grass can induce vomiting in them. Boy dogs are smart that they just have that instinct to know that. Anyway I had to work and I hated to leave her, but I’m hoping when I go home she has her appetite back. It just stinks when a dog doesn’t want to eat. Along these lines though I start today with a scare to pet owners.
BEWARE: I never let me dogs eat anything outside! This story is a good reminder of why. In NYC we walk our dogs on leashes so we can control what they put into their mouths. I know many have backyards where they let their dogs wander, but you should definitely know what’s growing in your backyard and make sure there is nothing harmful to your furry friend: http://theflume.com/main.asp?SectionID=1&SubSectionID=1&ArticleID=6277&TM=61447.55

Tomato Time. I love tomatoes and it’s many uses. Here’s a good refresher on the fruit commonly thought of as a veggie: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/705318298/Pick-a-winner-Want-a-good-tomato-Best-bet-is-to-go-local.html
