Kora, a gorgeous Great Pyrenees mix dog, came to see me for an ear infection. She spent her time perusing my office, tall enough to lay her head on my desk. It came to my attention she probably needed some changes in her already wonderful diet. As her human and I were going over the appropriate additions, she grabbed a large purple stuffed bear and proceeded to toss it in the air, ever higher each time. She was clearly excited about some of the food changes and choices we were making. Meal revisions seem to be one of the topics where I nearly always see an animal’s jubilant response.
