New Food

Kearney - TM made a big pan of our raw food tonight.  She said the grinder is working very well now that she has the blade in right.

We hadn't had dinner yet, so we were drooling.  TM let me clean up what she was dropping.  Lowri had to stay crated until TM was done.  Boy, was Lowri MAD!

Lowri - I barked and barked at TM to try and get her to let me out.  She wouldn't until I was quiet!  I mean really, who is training whom here???  I bark, she is supposed to jump.  I don't think TM read the rules.

But, oh man, the new food was good!  Kearney and I got it for supper tonight.  Then TM let me out so I could help her clean up.  I am a very good helper!  TM said she made 22 pounds of food tonight.  All I can say is "YUM!"


  1. So Susan how long have you been feed raw?

  2. I started feeding raw when Chase came - September of last year. I figured since I had just lost Angus and Dora to lymphoma, I better try something. The dogs LOVE it.

  3. The dogs do so well on the raw diet -- and once you get in the swing of it, it's not that difficult to make up a batch. It makes me feel better too -- Chase was weaned to ground turkey and goat's milk, so he expects his food to come right off the critter and not be in a can or a bag.

  4. If you decide to go this route, buy a meat grinder. As I grind up the barely frozen meat, I also grind up broccoli, cauliflower, etc. Each batch is different, and I supplement with chicken necks or wings or pork neck bones. I follow a 50 percent meaty bones (thighs, wings, drumsticks, etc.), 30 percent organ meats, 10 percent veggies, 5 percent fruit, and 5 percent whatever (tablescraps, etc.).

    Their teeth have never looked better.

  5. From Penni, “A special note from my handler: pack the food in plastic lock top (ZipLock) containers. Stack them in the freezer. It is simpler to take inventory, simpler to pull out the right number for a show weekend, and they don't leak all over like plastic bags do.”
