Picky picky...

Apparently Ferguson has a pickier, more delicate palate than I knew.

I've been transitioning him from Chicken and Rice Kirkland food over to Natures Domain Salmon and Sweet Potato (grain free).  Usually, it's not been a problem, as he'll typically eat whatever is in his dish without much thought and hasn't shown any reluctance in the new food since we started the slow transition 5 days ago.  But today?  He shared his true feelings.

I occasionally feed him out of his busy buddy purple egg toy, and let him go at it. Only this time, he intentionally avoided eating the new flat round pieces of the salmon and sweet potato.  Occasionally he'd eat a piece accidentally, but when he was finished, there were quite a few flat pieces scattered about the family room carpet. 

Uh HUH. 

I gathered them up, put them in his dish, and called him over with the "stay, okay!" routine, and he ate all of it but one lone little flat round piece, strategically placed in the very middle of the bowl.

I grabbed it, made him sit and down, and gave it as a treat, to which he ate with only mild reluctance. 

Sorry, Ferguson. We don't really put up with picky eaters :P.

That's funny that he would decide he didn't like it after having some for a few days. Glad he is leg healed and he's up and running again.
