Today, Hope got her first taste of kibble. I took some Bil-Jac Select kibble (my all time favorite puppy food) and soaked it in the homemade puppy formula. The Bill-Jac easy crumbles and soaks up liquids superbly. She gummed a kibble piece until it finally mushed up in her mouth, topping off the meaty taste by licking up the formula.
We will continue to feed her three times a day with this mixture, eventually weaning her off of the syringed formula, like a mom would do. She will totally beef up over the next couple of weeks!
