OMG OMG OMG!

YAY!

I'm SO excited that Tango will be staying on Chaz!

Obviously, I'm no where near a transport route, but if you need any help with anything let me know

Yeah I'm super excited! I will probably have questions about Chi's once he gets here (Assuming he will be a good fit) I'm mostly concerned about their dietary needs and finding an appropriate harness for his special shape XD Squeeeee

If it helps at all, mine are all on premade raw. My smallest (3lbs) eats 2oz a day, and my largest with a HUGE metabolism (Chloe, 7.5lbs) eats 5oz a day. Rylie (4lbs) gets 2oz a day, and Tucker (5lbs) gets 3oz a day.

None of mine are picky- chis tend to be vacuum cleaners when it comes to food!

Okay first I sent out PMs before ever checking here, so I guess y'all are already all caught up

He's eaten premade raw before (Nature's Variety Instinct chicken medallions) and did FANTASTIC on it. He ate Orijen initially, Acana for a few weeks, and for the last month or so he's been eating TOTW. He's pretty flexible and I have never seen him have loose stool, even switching foods cold turkey. He also has finally figured out how to eat a raw egg, except the shell. He eats just over half a cup of kibble a day (a heaping 1/4 cup twice a day), and when he was on the raw medallions he ate 3 medallions a day, except twice a week I gave him 4. I *think* each medallion is an ounce.

As for a harness, I swear I have tried on EVERY style of harness and nothing fits right lol. I haven't tried the RuffWear harnesses because there's nowhere here to try them on at, but I hear they're popular with a lot of tripods. He does, however, have a life vest that I use as a harness/seat belt. For walking I mostly just use a collar, because the life vest is so bulky (he already has a Lupine collar and a leather collar lol). He has grown a bit since I went harness shopping, though, so there might be something that will fit better now!

I wonder if a custom harness vest would work well for him? I usually order from Chloe's Four Legged Fashions, but I'm not sure she's making harnesses anymore:

Izzy is on TOTW so that works out perfectly! Now... It's time for a transport thread!
