Jack is so old his teeth are just not doing well.  We had to give him an anti inflammatory for his hips and teeth but it was causing him to have accidents.  He was having a lot of trouble bending to poop.  We had to add raw soft foot to help him get down the dry kibble because of the sore chompers. So I gave him a break for a week, and in 2 days the accidents completely stopped and he started being interested in food again.

 

I've been cooking beef liver and adding it into Jack's diet along with an occasional raw egg and olive oil. The oil really helps the constipation problem and the extra organ meat and egg is helping him get back some muscle mass.

 

Wow, what a difference.   I was really thinking we only had weeks left with this guy.  He is as happy as can be, albeit tired and in a bit of pain once and a while.  First pain med in  long time this morning, I think the storm coming in is hitting him as hard as its hitting me.

:D

 

I cant believe the difference. Long story short, I am adding these nasty liver nuggets I make for him to my diet... while i dont know if it's really helping, i lost another 1.5% body fat even though I pigged out all last week.  That, the increase in creatine to 10-15 grams a day, and really working on my sleep schedule is making a difference. 

 

woot.

Good you get to spend some more time with your buddy. Bet he thinks he’s all kinds of special with the liver!

He loses his damn mind.

 

My grandfather swore by liver and chicken gizzards, made it to 95.  Frankly, they were just poor AF and it was probably affordable. Great story about my uncle sitting at the table basically overnight because he wouldn't eat it.  While I love gizzards I definitely lived in fear that I would be stuck in front of a plate of liver when I stayed there.  Thankfully he never tortured his grandkids with quite the same intensity 

 

The flavor of beef liver is still hard to love, but the smell of liver and onions is actually comforting now.

 

:D

My dad was old world and savage af. I have that same story about spending the night at the table. 

Tastes have changed quite a bit since childhood. Maybe worth revisiting.

Daisy dog ate crab her last week. A stack of hamburgers the night before I put her down and a pack of bacon the day of. 

She got to where she couldn’t get up on her own. Pooped every time she tried. I had already build a ramp off the 2nd story deck about a year earlier for her. Sucks watching them suffer.

Asian dude killed it with the deep tissue massage. Didn’t realize how much pain I was in until I wasn’t. Especially the feet.

Jack is gonna get whatever he wants when it comes time.  I'll carry his ass to poop if he still wags his tail.  The moment he let's me know it's too much, he gets every snack he can eat and then we go in.

I'm so glad I took him off the daily meds.  They helped him so much in the beginning, but caused a lot of trouble on the inside.  He was almost to the limit of what I was willing to watch him go through so I made a hail Mary and tried taking him off the things that we thought helped.  He is just way more sensitive than other dogs.

When I found a dude who could get my psoas ro release, I was able to stand up straight. I didnt know I was twisted.  My belly button was off a good couple inches from center.  Now I'm almost straight and the QL on my left side actually engages.  I'm glad you got some relief as well.  Especially when your out of town and have to make the most of your time!

Was super stoked to go tour the Mercedes factory here in Tuscaloosa. But it’s closed to the public currently to retool for new models. :(

For what you are going to do it'll probably work fine.
