Adler Ate All of Her Green Beans

That's right, Adler ate all of her green beans. Why green beans you ask? Well, Adler is on a diet and our vet told us that her Eagle Pack food is high in calories even though we give her only maintenance and reduced fat formulas. So to combat this and instead of making her switch foods which for a dog can be very upsetting to their stomachs - she suggested we supplement with green beans.

So tonight, Adler had a little over a cup of her Eagle Pack maintenance formula dog food and green beans. She seemed to like them and they are supposed to be very satisfying for dogs because they are high in fiber, says our vet. Well, at least we know that Adler doesn't take after Tom who dislikes many vegetables. Hopefully Austen will take after Adler!


  • High in fiber? Man, you guys will be the ones losing weight running Adler down all those flights of stairs to get outside quickly!

  • Or, you could just put a diaper on Adler too?

  • My old dog Ruthenium used to eat raw green beans. I'd hold one between my teeth & she'd come up to me and take it right out of my mouth. You should try it with Adler.
