Poor Zena. sad.gif

My Mum's old lab (12) is funny about eating from a dish sometimes, and they have to put the food on the floor. She also won't eat if she's being watched. I'm afraid I've forgotten how old Zena is.

That's a very smart boot tray, I quite fancy one myself. smile.gif

A friend of mine has a dog that won't eat from a bowl and tried loads of different bowls, tea trays etc.
She now uses a boot tray similar to this and it seems to have worked.


I could get that, and if it doesn't work, I could actually use it as a boot tray. Though I suspect I'd have more luck getting Zena to eat from it than getting OH to put his boots on it rolleyes.gif

She's 9 which is nowhere near old enough to be experiencing this! I called the vet rude names when he suggested she was getting on mad.gif She's a puppy - my puppy wub.gif

Madam has dined! I put the lamb straight on to a plastic tray, and although there was some hesitation, she decided it wasn't a Bad Thing and licked it clean yay.gif

It nearly all went wrong as I thought I'd feed both dogs in the garden, so I put Ianto's bowl out, picked the tray up and called the dogs. Zena walked out, took one look at Ianto's dish and fled back inside. She only went to the sofa, so I marched after her and plonked the tray down under her nose (it's been a hard day). Then we were away! But I wish I could see inside her head and find out why dishes have suddenly become so scary.

I reckon she has had dish-related trauma, something getting stuck on the bottom or her tongue getting stuck on the stand? These were my thinkings when I was trying to work out what had made 3/4 of our kitchen scary for B.
9 is way too young to be demented in anything but a good way surely?
Love to Zena and her picnics tho' wub.gif
