I found a kibble Buzz can eat. It's quite a bit higher in Phos than I'd like which makes me sad but he's doing really well on it for now.

And it reduces my cost to feed him each day dramatically! After he got sick he could only tolerate raw. Beef specifically. The cheapest I could get beef without egg was nearly $3/pound (with my discount). He was eating 1.5 pounds per day and still not putting any weight back on.

He's currently able to eat 1/2 cup Canine Caviar Herring (which I can get free from work) and about 6oz of raw at each meal. I've seen only good changes (of the poop kind). So... now I need to do math again and see if I even need the premade beef, because I'm pretty sure the overall Phos is too high now. Maybe I can just order the muscle and organ meat, meaning EVEN MORE SAVINGS! And then less stress, because less money!

I was worried about how in going to get to work on Thursday since my car is out of commission. My boss said I can use the work van so I'm getting it tonight. It sits around and doesn't get used anymore because we don't offer a dog taxi service anymore.

My coworkers are awesome. When I told them I would likely need to take 1-2 weeks off around Christmas due to Michael being able to come home and us having our wedding at that time, they all said, "That's okay, we'll make it work!" Even if that means they have to work longer shifts/shifts they normally wouldn't.

They are awesome.

Uhm, so jealous. I don't even think I could handle a lens like that though. I'm still very camera dumb.
