St. Paddy's Day is fast approaching so we decided a green beer, for dogs of course, was in order to help celebrate the holiday. This is probably the simplest ever with just two ingredients but it does take a little time to "brew". Use chicken stock for a light beer or bone broth for a dark beer.Read More
Chicken livers are an excellent source of high quality protein and a rich source of Vitamins A, D and virtually all of the B vitamins. They are also relatively inexpensive so stock up and bake these easy meatballs. I save a lot of time when making meatballs by using a cookie dough scoop. They may not be perfectly round but Kirby doesn't seem to mind.Read More
This was a great success! Kirby and our foster, Odie, licked their bowls clean! The majority of Kirby's meals include brown rice as a grain so barley is a nice change for him. Easy, healthy, tasty - what more can a pet parent ask for?Read More
Sometimes the occasion may call for something a little more fancy which makes a frittata the perfect choice. Either way it's an appealing, healthy and tasty meal for both the humans and the canines in your family.Read More
This is something I bake once in a while for the girls at work but can be adapted for your dog. Kirby loves good food and these grain free muffins are always a nice change for him on those special mornings. I try to add eggs to his treats and meals when I can since they help maintain his shiny coat.
You can pick and choose the ingredients your pup likes best for the filling. For less calories try using turkey sausage. Kirby likes these made with real bacon bits too. Spinach is so good and so under utilized but any finely chopped veggie will work. Try different cheeses - mozzarella, Parmesan, goat, and feta. The possibilities are endless making this an easy favorite for both humans and canines.
