    Reading this over, I see that:
    Most people feed their dog twice a day, most of the dogs are greater than 70 pounds, many people like to give their dogs kong, many of the people have their dogs sleep in their bedrooms, and multiple people like Innova and Nutro (to give to their dogs, of course).

    Well, due to circumstances beyond my control ther is no way to answer, lol. But most should know all about the little beasties from my various posts, pictures, web site etc. Food is easy.....Maxim Nutrition, on a trial basis. Sleep...crates, various beds, or on top of me. Job????? Ya gotta be kidding, rofl. W_O_R_K is a 4 letter word!!!!

    Exercise is as much as they want. After I finish mowing lot 2 (if I live long enough, between heat and pouring rain) we will be back out playing soccer as the temps allow.

    Nice meeting ya'll's dogs!



    They all free feed, don't get treats (poor neglected things)
    Age ranges from 15 1/2 down to 6 3/4.

    oh cool, how fun!

    1. How big is your dog (pounds)
    fluctuates between 28 and 30 pounds

    2. What type of dog food do you feed it? (brand, state what it's for Ex: for puppies)
    home prepared, mostly raw, lots of raw meaty bones

    3. How old is your dog?
    he'll be 4 in october

    4. What kind of dog biscuits do you feed it?
    i don't feed many dog biscuits per se, but he really likes the innova health bars

    5. What kind of dog bones/ pacifiers/ chew toys do you give it?
    mostly real, raw, unprocessed knuckle bones, but once in a while a compressed rawhide bone

    6. Where does your dog sleep?
    in the bedroom

    7. What does your dog sleep on/ in?
    under the bed - his choice. lol
    he has a crate next to the bed but only hangs out in there on and off during the day. i work from home and during the times i'm in the office, he either sleeps under my desk or in his basket next to my chair.

    8. How many times a day is your dog fed?
    twice a day

    9. How long per day is your dog excercised?
    depends what we are doing. if it is just the "standard program", we do a 4-6 mile bike ride or a ~3 mile walk once a day (both take about an hour), but we also go hiking and playing/swimming on the beach.

    10. Does your dog have a real job? (ex: gun dog, sled dog, etc.)
    no, he doesn't, but i try to provide an appropriate equivalent by obedience training him. soon we'll hopefully be able to enter competitions.
