Thanks for all the input….I will be calling the vet later on this afternoon. He does eat quickly when he actually eats but we have a puzzle bowl which I thought helped with the scarfing. Thanks again everyone

We just went to the vet and he said everthing seems fine. The food is not old. We feed him Natural Balance LID cause Tupper is allergic to grain. We have tried even changing the flavor of it. Do you give your B's any ice cubes? I really feel it's heat related because on less humid days he will eat. We live in NY and it's been a very hot and humid summer. I don't remember having this problem with him last summer but then again it wasn't as humid last year. He still runs and plays and acts the same so always.

Hi everyone,

So normally we have no problems with Tupper eating but recently he won't eat. Ever since it started to get really warm and humid he doesn't eat. I don't know if this is a coincidence or that it's heat related. We feed him in the morning and then again at dinner. He doesn't even touch the morning food and has a few bites at dinner. Sometimes he will go 24 hours without eating and then he'll eat and then throw it up. Does anyone have the same problem or know what I should do to prevent this from happening? I'm just worried he is not getting the proper nutrition. Once or twice a week we will put sweet potato or squash in the food and he will eat it but I was told not to do that to much or he will not eat plan dry food. Any ideas??

Thanks,
Ellen and Jimmy

I used to feed Tupper Blue Buffalo but he never seemed to get used to it, even after months of trying. I switched to Natural Balance and it was an immediate difference in his poops. We have also experienced the throwing up after meals from a new bag of food. These little B's are just so sensitive. It seems like raw would be a great option for you, I only know what I have read here on the forum, but seems to be a great alternative.

I agree squirt bottle works great, and they learn to respect it. We feed Tupper when we eat. That way he is engaged for the first five minutes of our meal.

Sorry I was taking the clue to literally. Just using my own brain power and not Google, I knew there isn't a baseball team. So I was figuring NFL and MLB. Then after a searching I saw the list of teams. I love games and puzzles.

Anyone want to go to Levan?

Some clues are leading me to Salt Lake City, Utah. That is what comes to mind first, but all of the clues don't fit.
