Dinner with the Brigade

We pretty much follow the same routine every day. Olivia is the leader of the pack and she begins demanding dinner around 4pm. The sad whining she starts off with progresses over the course of the hour until she is either screeching or barking- at which time Griffin and Buddha join in. I try to ignore them until 5pm (success is determined by my patience level of the day)- which seems like a reasonable dinner time to me. At 5pm, the Brigade eats dinner.

All three dogs get dry food. Olivia and Griffin get fish oil pills (which has DRASTICALLY reduced their shedding and makes their coats shiny) and Angel Eyes (which gets rid of tear stains). I also add fresh vegetables (green beans, broccoli, carrots or peas) to their dishes. It doesn't take long to prepare, but if you watch this video, you would think it takes forever based on their sad little faces.

I don't enjoy torturing them, but sometimes I find their drama sort of amusing. Sometimes I want to shake all of them, but mostly, I think they are an adorable little pack of starving beasts.
