Today was a shop-for-Mojo day down at Western Pet Supply. We were mainly shopping for adult dog food, since their selection's pretty good.

We picked up a 4-lb bag of Wysong canine Maintenance Dog Food, a 1.5lb bag of Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul adult formula, and a free sample of some kind of raw turkey dog food. We figured we might as well try adult dog foods on him now, so when his Chicken Soup puppy blend runs out we won't be figuring out what to feed him.

We also got a step-in harness, which is much much nicer than the one we had. The one we had first (which is now too small) is a figure-eight kind of thing, where one hole goes over his head and the other clips under his torso. The one we got recently is more of a clover: his head goes in one hole, his left foot goes through the other hole, and it clips around his other leg. Yep, it's complicated.

This one is easy. It's a figure-eight, but you put his feet in the holes then click it on his back. It's called a step-in harness, and it's -so- much easier to get him in and out of. Amazing.

So Mojo ate the turkey (obviously). Raw food is just too expensive, but it's kind of neat I guess. I think the Chicken Soup for Adults was OK. He really liked the Wysong, and munched down all of it.

I think what we'll try & do is mix his food instead of sticking to a brand. The downside to today's food experiment was his poop was soft - and he subsequently stepped on it and tracked it all over the upstairs hallway carpet. Yuck - instant bath time for Mojo. It's time to get Nature's Miracle, since Oxy Clean doesn't quite have the power.

We cut the activity down today, because this afternoon we saw some shinyness on the incision. To us, that meant that the incision was seeping a bit of blood, which means that he was too active and probably opened it a bit. Doh! We'll see what the vet says tomorrow.
