I’m joining Stressed Rach for a Music Monday meme!
This song is dedicated to my family dog, Precious. Precious was not just a pet, but a sister to me. She was a full-bred Boxer who birthed 11 babies.
Read more about our family gem here.
The reason I’m dedicating, Anita Ward’s ‘Ring My Bell’ to Precious is because she learned, at a very early age to ring a bell to go outside to relive herself.
Her bell will FOREVER (hint-hint Mom) remain a memorial on the door of my “home”. My “home” is where my family is in Tucson, Arizona, no matter what!
Have you ever thought about making your own dog food? I know I have for many reasons.
The number one reason I initially thought about making my own dog food was for cost savings. Coming in close for reasons to make your own dog food are all of the dog food recall scares, as well as simply wanting to provide my dog the least processed foods.
Homemade dog food is possible without sacrificing the nutrients required for dogs.
Read the article for an Easy cooked dog food recipe and watch the video! This recipe follows the OAMC (Once A Month Cooking) method. Depending on the size of your dog, you may find yourself making the Easy cooked dog food recipe more than once per month, BUT after you make it, you can store the food in the freezer and take it out using as needed.
From there, you add the supplements before serving the Homemade dog food to your dog. Without said supplements, this recipe is essentially a meat loaf and will result in multiple nutritional deficiency diseases.
This recipe makes approximately 48 cups of dog food. For a small dog (10 lbs or less), this recipe will yield approximately 96 days worth of food. For a GIANT dog (approximately 80 lbs), this recipe will yield approximately 12 days worth of food. With the added supplements, it seems more economical for a small dog based on current food costs and supplement costs, but the utlimate result regardless of size, is taking out the processed part to ensure your dog is eating GOOD FOOD.
As with any change in foods, this new "diet" should be introduced to your dog in stages.
