Once a chowhound...
...always a chowhound...
Like most corgis, Gibson loves food. Ok, he LOVVES♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥!!!!!!!!!! food. It is his main motivation to do anything other than sleep (mmm sleep). Food is happiness. Food is love. Food is good. Food is serious business.
He is not picky. No, his palate is open to almost everything that is the least bit edible. Plain lettuce he is not a fan of.. but throw some dressing on it.. yum! Cheese, peanut butter, oatmeal, bacon, bananas! Cat poop, squirrel poop, bunny poop! He'll do anything for this stuff.
I feed him first thing in the morning (his reason for waking up) and then take him for a walk. The entire walk he spends looking for something to munch on. He can sniff something a block away and then run right towards it to chomp at it while I try to pry open his jaws to take it away (ick).
You would think that I do not feed him enough..and I have thought that many times. But I do. How do I know? 1. The vet told me so. 2. His stomach cannot hold more than I feed him.
You see, Gibson is not a bottomless pit, even though he acts like he is. He would eat his entire bag of food in one sitting if he could. No doubt in my mind. But then? He'd get sick. Case in point: His 5 poops in 5 hours marathon from getting into ham scraps at a family farm. Also, last month, he found my friend's travel bag of food for her pup and ate the entire thing... then proceeded to throw it all up about 5 minutes later and then wanted to eat all of THAT food...

Your stomach just doesn't hold that much, dude!!
But apparently, Gibson does not understand the concept of full. Or perhaps he doesn't have that signal in his brain to tell him when he is? This is why I try to limit what he eats, because I KNOW he'll always ask for more. ALWAYS..... ;)

How about you? Do you have a chowhound or a rare picky eater?
