1. Yes. Usually does have several tries before he succeeds. We understand that weak digestion is a usual problem with this breed - he is our third OES and they have all had occasional problems. He is fed on white meat - usually chicken, and some brown bread, plus occasional tit-bits.
2 Not today, a little yesterday, but very liquid. Previously normal.
3. About 5 hours, but just a little. Same yesterday, about the same time, near the end of his walk.
4. About 38 kilos.
