Many of us has the same response to a prescribed diet. I'm with ya Zach.

Ahhh Sweet Zach!

SO glad you are back after a well deserved holiday break. While Zach may not be able to have sight, he will have a great life with love, care and compassion. All animals should be so lucky. All the animals who come to you have found a good home for however long they live.

Zach does not need sight to "see" the love that surrounds him. Extra hugs tonight for little Zach. RDF rocks!

I agree 100% with Janet. Couldn't have said it better! Zach is in the best place he could possibly be for sure.

Hopefully, he'll acclimate to his diet. You may still get "the look" though :) I tried the green beans with my dogs and they made a face and spit them out. I have heard of many dogs who really like them...just not mine lol. I've also heard that canned pumpkin helps with a diet, it also fills them up.

Sorry to hear that, but Zach's a happy boy and we all have to give in to the diet sooner or later! Hope you somehow had some relaxation over the holiday!!

As you've always maintained, blind animals are just as happy as sighted animals. He's just a very lucky pup to have found his way to RDF. Thank you for giving them all the best care in the world.

Well, too bad there's no chance he'll see again, but at least there are the good points you mentioned. I'm afraid he'll never grasp the concept of a diet. It's just foreign to a dog's thinking. "What, not eat as much as you can as often as you can? What kind of silly idea is that?" I've heard that adding green beans to the food can help a dog feel satisfied while consuming fewer calories, but I haven't tried this.

I just re-read Zach's story.... I'm glad he found Rolling Dog Ranch. A few years ago, I had a will/trust completed.... so that my furry kids would be taken care of. I don't care what happens with "my stuff".... but want to make sure that my pups are taken care of.
