hi, i have a beautiful cavalier king charles called harry who will be 2 years of age next tuesday the 11 of september 2007. i live with my parents but i am the official owner. harry is spoiled. when i am at work my Mom and Dad look after him and he gets trips in the car and plays with his favourite toys. however, i know this is probably my own fault but my Mom and I have to handfeed Harry.
he hardly eats for my Mom at this stage and sometimes she thinks he will only eat for me. its getting a bit ridiculous at this stage. it is very hard to keep hand feeding him and it is also very time consuming. i have been told to -(as we have gone to dog training) leave his food on the ground take it up and put it back down again. basically, let him starve and he will eat when he is hungary. but - i always end up giving in because i want to take him for a walk and don't want the dog walking on an empty stomach.
has anyone had this experience ? what has happened?
also, with regard to his temperment - he has got a bit snappy with my parents and if they lift him to feed him he snaps sometimes. what has happened to my lovely little boy? my parents give him lots of attention, he has lots of toys lots of love, lots of grass to run in. he is ruined. it is disappointing that he snaps.
(i am having awful problems trying to put my photograph of harry on the website but having no luck i have followed instructions given )
