Unlike Norbert, Louis has never been a fussy eater and has always wolfed down his meals. That was until we first brought him to France on his own. After one day, he refuses to eat his meal in the morning until you give him "extra titbits" like chicken or beef. Evening meals are fine and he needs no encouragement. We initially thought the problem with Norbert was either the French Royal Canin was different, the water was tainted or Norbert had told him how to get "extras". This trip, we brought the kibble from the UK, used Evian instead of French tap water and it made no difference. The funny thing is that as soon as we get back home to the UK, he will revert to eating all his meals immediately without enticement.

Anyone experienced such behaviour before? Confused Confused

No! that is one quirk we have yet to develop! Honestly, friends are a bit - unfairly - inclined to roll their eyes skywards when I mention another Dinah-ism, or until recently Brion-ism (he had far more 'sensitivities' than Dinah) but maybe the remaining dog begins to adopt its old mate's idiosyncrasies, a bit like a long established married couple! Certainly it was very sad and also rather sweet that the day we returned home with just our Pug, Bertie the Briard having died on holiday, Cino, the Pug, tried his absolute hardest to take over Bertie's chicken herding duties, and charged at the hens with such vigour that they actually let him hustle them into their pen, sadly only the once. The next day they had regrouped, and returned to ignoring him, to his great indignation, as before.
So, no from me, but it would be fascinating to learn if other Briards become fastidious over food when abroad.

Good way of getting extra treats on holiday after all us humans indulge so why not our Briards Very Happy
