    Hello. I am new to this forum. I have 3 year old Corgi named Palette. She has been fed raw for 2 years.I am looking forward to getting to know you all.

    The avatar picture is my dog when she was 3 months old. She has grown up and look different but I like this picture a lot.

    WELCOME!

    I adore corgis! Such little monkeys. Smile Hopefully we get to see more of your baby around here, and we welcome your advice and knowledge too. Always good to have differing opinions and views on a subject like this.

    Hope to see you posting often. Smile

    Hi,everybody. I realized I notice some of you from yahoo list,lol.
    I think this forum is good because people who has cats AND dogs can ask questions on one forum without logging in to other forum.

    I am not an expert on rawfeeding but,I would like to post suggestions for those who has just started,hope those would help them.

    I can't believe that Palette becomes 4 years old in about 4 months... Time passes by so fast and cannot believe the fact that she is on raw diet for more than 1 year already..

    She had Turkey today and I was a little mean to her and,after she sit nicely,I let her wait,and all the bubbles coming out from muzzle drooling onto feeding mat. I should have taken video but,battery was out for camera.She then ate the Turkey and kept licking her mouth.

    Did you realize that dog cannot lick under jaw area (chin) like we can? Laughing

    PS:what is the blue small button you see on topic? I cannot find what it means....

    Yassy, time flies when you're feeding raw, eh?! LOL

    I am on the yahoo group, but I never post, just read. Wink I am a lurker!

    Oooh! It's too bad you didn't have a camera ready for her to drool all over her feeding mat! That would have been hilarious! She must really love turkey. Very Happy Hopefully you helped her clean up afterwards since she couldn't reach her chin!


    **Heather is correct, the blue dots means you have posted in that thread. Smile

    Heather & Kelly,

    Thank you for technical help on blue dots. Now I know what it means.

    Yes,drooling is not as much as it did with her goat meal(her favorite) but it was very funny watching her drool..

    But one thing she is scared of is Emu paws.... Well,she does love Emu meat or bones but not paws.She does love poultry feet like chicken feet as much as she is eager to abandon the big hunk of meal behind for tiny feet,but with Emu paw.. she goes hide and run for her life (to behind the packaged water bottle Razz I can see her very good even if she thinks she is perfectly being hid)

    Everybody has such experience?

    Can't say we've had Betty be afraid of much yet, although we have yet to do chicken feet, so maybe those will scare her? Sounds like your dog gets some nice meat choices! Where do you get your Emu?

    Kelly,
    I see 4 picture of black cats and one dog as avatar. So, you have 1 dog and 4 cats?? And,Betty is your dog?

    For Palette,chicken feet is REALLY,I mean,really high valued item. I feed it regularly every 3 week,once a week when I feed it (other week,Duck feet,pheasant feet)so,chicken feet is my trade item when I feed big hunk of meal. She never scare of feet of chicken,she comes right up. Just Emu paws... Maybe size.. because that thing is almost as big as our hands really and it has black colored and it looks like gator skin,and nail is thick.I chopped off nail though.

    Umm,Emu?I got it from rancher in TN called red oak farm. The box got busted out (she did not put insulated wall..)and wet when the meat is shipped so,mail man was kind of mad..But I got whole Emu and total weight of meat plus bone was about 50lb and shipping fee was about 50 dollars.. since I rotate meat,it does not go low quick so that is a plus.

    Yes, Yassy, we have 4 cats and one permanent dog.. Betty is our pup. Smile We also have a rescue we are rehabing right now, she is posted in the other part of the forum.

    Can I get the website of where you get your Emu meat? Thanks

    Hi,kelly. Website is http://www.redoakfarm.com/

    Ask for Myra and tell her I send you (she may not notice my nick name,so tell her "Yasuko" sent you to her).

    What she offered to me before was 1 whole Emu is $100 and you can get whatever you want.Mine came out to about roughly 50lb plus with meat and bone. From TN to VA,it was about $50 shipping fee.It came with Priority mail(USPS).

    Yassy- was that all organs, head, neck, etc? Or just the meaty legs, breast, ribs?

    Kelly, there's an emu guy at the Market I sometimes go to, I will ask him if he does this too, it's too expensive to ship in from the states, or I'd go in on it with you. You guys across the border are lucky, it's still really hard to find suppliers here, most of them are just raw feeders that went into business for themselves.

    Heather.

    You buy a whole Emu so, you get everything you want. If you want parts separate them,tell her so.She does what you want her to do.

    Timothea,
    Your Emu guy is living in US?? I see you are from Ontario.Maybe if you google your area with key wording raw meat supplier or something,something may comes up??

    Kelly,

    I agree with you. If you know your dog eats it,this maybe a good deal but if not,it is not worth it.I knew Palette likes Emu so,I got it but just paws.. she cannot face with.paws are still in freezer.. Someone told me to keep it but I have not gotten any contact from her for a month or so so,I am not sure what I do with it..

    yassy, what T means is that it is too pricey to order thru the US for Emu, and we should go to they guy near her for it instead. Smile

    Yes, I would haaate to have all that Emu meat and then nobody eats it. Sad

    Didn't see the emu one, but there's a ton of places to check out! Drove by a wild/free range meat place on Saturday, early morning. Need to go back when they are open and see what they've got.
