Normal Day 18 -- 142.2

Our dog has been constantly biting at his paws and scratching himself all over. I read that this can be caused by a nutritional deficiency -- especially in essential fatty acids. We went to Petco and picked up some doggy vitamins for him. So far it hasn't had made any noticeable difference to his scratching, but it has had an amazing effect on his personality. He is ordinarily extremely aggressive and will bite from the slightest provocation. Suddenly he is docile and friendly and oh so calm. It's bizarre. We have a nice, sweet dog now.

Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs in a whole wheat tortilla with hot sauce, lettuce, celery, onions, carrots and almonds

Snack: handful of peanuts in shell

Dinner: spinach, zucchini and tofu lasagna

Snack: handful of peanuts in shell

2 Tablespoons Bailey's mixed with 4 oz milk over ice
