My Labrador is malfunctioning

She leaves food in her bowl shock

Dh feeds her in the morning and it takes her till around 3pm to finish it. She is not sick, her mouth is Finland she is motivated by the same kibble when training so its not a case of disliking the food.

Is this normal? Are their Labs out there that don't demolish a bowl of kibble in 3.8 seconds and then are immediately hungry again?

I'm certain this breaks the trade description act.

When baking or cooking I lob the shells at her.

If I am using just a yolk / whites I chuck left overs with shell in her bowl.

If I haven't washed the floors yet and I think she's allowed a treat I simply give her a whole raw egg.

She minces like a right pansy before finally eating it grin

I've never given one with the shell on before, it never occurred to me. What a fab idea.

We have - but ours got into such a mess with it we've not repeated the experiment grin

Shells got all the calcium in.

Hullys actually quite tidy, she

Eats it on her mat

I didn't know that, RandallMutt thanks you!

Jas takes the egg directly from the nest box given half a chance, then carefully carries it over to the patio before lobbing it so that it smashes everywhere. He does clean it up, though ;)
