Hey leaveittoweaver! You are not a bad mommy! Your new baby just has to get used to the new home, schedule, etc..... She got over the stairs right? If her poop continues to smell bad, I would not rule out a vet visit. If you are even thinking of feeding raw-JustDoIt!!! I had many reservations and even after one month I am still feeding a small amount (less than half of a days feeding to all three of my pups 4yrs, 11yrs, and 12 1/2 yrs.) The raw food is sooooo much easier on the stomach and bowels. I also just bought a book entitled Raw Dog Food by Carina Beth MacDonald. Highly recommended and no requests for supplements. I only give a high dose of glucomsamine/chrondrotin (sp?) because of severe arthritis in my oldies. It really is easy, and kinda fun because you feel good about giving varied meats...pumpkin is always good!!!!
