 :smitten:  Liz, I just loved Kuma's story. Thank you for alerting us to it.  Yes, dogs become like our children and as you know, I am passionately fond of dogs. Lovely, heartwarming story.

Very interesting that you have him on a plant based diet.
What are you feeding him?

NOLAN,
Kuma eats raw vegetables, some fruit, and healthy, organic foods.  He eats cooked foods that have little or no seasoning, spices I suppose.  I think he regularly eats some organic dog food also. 

I don’t talk much about food with my son who wants to convert the whole world to veganism.  My husband and I had a meatless Thanksgiving at his home this year, and I must say that there was a lot of appetizing dishes.  My son’s now grown children grew up as vegetarians, but on occasion they eat a little meat depending on the social occasion and not to cause offense to their hosts, as my husband and I do.  Unfortunately, my son is a fanatic about fitness and diet and has been since he was a teen.  The rest of the family, his sisters and my husband and myself are ‘more balanced’  ::)  ~Liz

My eldest daughter went vegan about two years ago. As a result I now eat what I call "hunter gatherer" ;D During the week I eat vegan with her, but over weekends I will sometimes eat some meat - like when we bbq.
I must say my cooking skills have improved dramatically since cooking vegan dishes as we now use and try so many new spices and foods. I could never go back to just eating the usual Spagbol or Mac 'n Cheese type dishes every day.

 :) THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR FINE REPORT!  I am proud of you and my son who at your age seek healthy life styles and prepare your own vegan food.  He is 55 and quite healthy; he walks or bikes around the city more than he drives; is self-employed as a computer technician for businesses, restaurants and hotels, and does music venues for concerts, solo guitarist for dinner music, and gigs, etc. and finds time to surf.


I admit we eat healthier because of him since health, good nutrition, and (our) longevity mean the world to him.  He is the eldest and lives nearby. My sister visited today and he made sure to have a vegetarian lunch for her; it was delicious.
