Way back in July 2013 I shared a post about my sweet dog’s weight issues and the healthy diet I put him on. His name is Mochi and he is about to turn 6! Yay, Happy Birthday, Mochi!
I have a printed version of the 1st edition on my fridge; it has been very helpful. Family and friends have inquired about the list and I’ve since seen it shared on Pinterest over 9,000 (9,364 as of today) times. That’s wild!
As a birthday celebration, I updated the “Feeding Fido” list that I use to guide myself with Mochi’s healthy eating. There are more food items on both the “Safe” and “Unsafe” lists, along with new doggie illustrations, done by yours truly. 🙂
Mochi still enjoys going for walks, hikes, and runs. And while we all tease about his girth and that he’s “Fluffy, not Fat,” his weight has been kept under control! He still enjoys his fruits and veggies. I think he is one of the very few dogs I’ve met that goes nuts at the sight of fruits and veggies and has your undivided attention the second you’re chopping in the kitchen.
PLEASE NOTE: This list is not comprehensive nor should the information be considered professional advice. Please use your own judgement and always consult with your vet.
