Patient Progress

Fish School Dried Mango is now in fish school. She is currently learning how to eat fish on her own. All pups are initially hand-fed, but later fish is just thrown into their tub to give them an opportunity to dive for, grab and swallow the fish whole, head first. It's something all pups need to learn, and it requires quite some skill. Eventually, Dried Mango will eat entirely on her own at which point she will graduate from fish school.
