Hi all: Every once in a while, I give the chi's a tiny amount of left over stew. Today, I gave them some beef stew that besides the meat had pasta, and some vegies. Emmie ate hers right up. Bonnie, on the other hand, had to eat the meat and kibble right away, and then took the peas, carrots and pasta one piece at a time, put them down on the pad and 'taste' them'! She actually took the pea and rolled it around in her mouth, then spit it out. Did this 2-3 times before she finally ate all of them. Carrots and pasta and beans same thing. Took her awhile to finish! What a riot to watch.!
