Blog experiment week 2
This is Tess's bum after one week of Yumega being added to her diet. I have to confess we have been guessing how much to use rather than using a measuring cup so we may have overdone in a bit, but can you see a difference from seven days ago? Here's the picture for you to compare...
Both dogs are bright eyed and bushy tailed - well Tess is bright eyed certainly, you have to take a guess with Oscar! But as you can see he was dashing about so much he's just a blur!
Here's Oscar's close-up of his coat. He was given a full body wash on Wednesday. And no, I didn't brush him for this shot, his coat seems to have more volume somehow - not sure how that can be. Other external factors - a lack of mud this week? Also, time of day. I was late taking these photos so the sun had gone in - you can see the colour of the grass is different and perhaps the change of light brings out the browner tones in their coats? I didn't colour-correct either pic, though. Will try to take the next pix in direct sunlight like week one - that's if we get any sun next Sunday!
I'm interested to see how both dogs get on as the trial progresses and we start using a measuring device instead of the over-generous guess-timates!.
Here's the before photo to remind you of Oscar's thatch... ugh!
Quite a noticeable change in just one week, I'd say. Will keep monitoring. I'd noticed a texture change a couple of days ago - a silkiness returned to Tess's coat that hadn't been there for a long time.
I'd thought it was just me wishing it to work - but normally sceptical husband Graham noted it too independently.
Will try to be good and keep taking the photos each week.
