    I love how this boxer layed down so not to frighten the cows and then just layed there while they investigated. That was awesome. On one of our many walking routes we had Llama/Alpaca that would always greet Nala when we would come by. The owner started noticing and thought it was neat.

    Corn oil

    I have never heard of that, but personally I wouldn't use Corn Oil. If you really want to give any oil it should be Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil. Or fish oil. But I cannot say whether these other oils fixes the gas issue. The way we got rid of the nasty gas was by changing foods. I not...
