Blue Cypress by the Sea, aka Cy

Cypress is an Australian Shepperd, she was born January 26, 2023

Cy has MDR1 gene. It is only important in emergency situations with unfamiliar vets. Certain common dog medicines are harmful to Cy.

Grapes, chocolate and raisins are highly toxic to all dogs. If swallowed - please, take to the vet.

Check for ticks if you take Cy for a hike in the forest. 

Feeding

Feeding time is at 7:30 AM & 7:30 PM. (The same time Tosha's auto feeding. )

Cy food is on the shelf in the closet next to the kitchen entry door.

We use one full jar (leveled off) each feeding.

During the day, usually after walk Cy can enjoy a bone.

Fresh one for the longer chew, and peanut butter filled ones for the quick treat. 

As a special training treat she might enjoy occasional cheese bites (top shelf in the refrigerator), or chicken bites (in the freezer)

No feeding off the table, please.

She loves apples as a mid day snack,

Other Notes

Cy food is on the shelf in the closet next to the kitchen entry door.

 

Cy chicken snacks are in the bottom freeze drawer. I’m

Cy tries to eat Tosha’s poop. So keep the toilet door partially closed by using the extension tie

Cy may chew on things that are within her reach, such as glasses, head phones, socks etc

We use harness for walks

We use her regular kibble for treats when we learn commands, to encourage good behavior during walks, play fetch etc

 

Cy will go to the fireplace door and will stand in front of it if she needs to go potty.

 

You may give Cy occasional treats from the jar “Dog” 

Cy toys, harness and leash are in the black bin in the wooden rolled cube shelf.
