Is your dog eating more?
There is some evidence out there that some animals have a sense of predicting when dangerous weather or climatological conditions are imminent. However, other than certain immediate situations, I couldn’t really find out whether they have any kind of long-term capabilities.
Oscar says “brutal winter”
The reason I bring this up, and have been asking other dog owners the same question – is that for the first time in what will be three winters, the Hoboken411 Mascot Oscar is eating like he’s never eaten before.
His diet has remained consistent, and normally he picks at his food slowly throughout the day. But the last couple weeks he’s finishing his food faster, and actually eating more each day.
So my un-scientific determination is that since Oscar “beefing up,” he’s preparing for a colder than average winter season, and I think he told me we were in for some kind of big blizzard before it’s all said and done.
Have you noticed a dietary change in your dog?
