If I have not commented on your blogs in a while, my apologies (Cheyenne!)...our internet service is being very intermittent... sometimes I will start a post, lose the internet, and come back a long time later to finish it. Same with reading blogs... I'll try to comment, and lose the connection. It's Hughesnet, and they are famous for it.
Tonight I tried something new.
I have become interested in making my own dog food. I always hesitated to do this, but have talked to several who feed their dogs from home, and the dogs have done fine. We have gone through several different kinds of dog food, and right now, all four dogs are overweight. This makes it even harder on Abby and Ranger... Ranger has arthritis, and it makes it harder for him to get up and move around. Abby.... she is so overweight right now that we sometimes have to carry her back in the house, and we don't want to lose her. From research, I have discovered that some homemade formulas are so dense that a little goes a long way.
My main recipe calls for ground turkey, but tonight I had some hamburger that had to be used. I fried it with no salt, etc. I made four cups of brown rice... and opened a can of green beans and then ran them under a faucet in the colander to drain salt off them. I cut up part of a potato that I had baked last night that Keith was too tired to eat. I mixed all this together while it was still hot with an egg and a little canola oil.
Here it is in the bowl:
Yum-O! (I cut the potato up even more, and as you see, there is not much meat)
Here is the proof it was tasty:
Gertie has become a finicky eater of late. She is overweight, as are the other three...but I am hoping this new food will satisfy their hunger as well as slim them down. I gave each a little taste of it tonight, and they all lapped it up... so we shall see!
