I know pumpkin season is pretty much over, and that makes me sad, but the good side is that stores are putting their left over stock on great sales. While at Target last week I found 20oz cans on sale for $1.41, and I had to buy a few. Not only does my family love pumpkin, but so does my dog. Now I’m left with too many ideas on what to do with all this pumpkin. Of course pie, bread, and cake make the cut, but I can’t leave my Max out of the deliciousness. With Valentine’s day coming up tomorrow I thought it would be a great time to make some heart shaped treats and try out a new recipe.
Recently I wrote an article about homemade dog food, and I realize it can be a bit overwhelming if you’ve never done it before. Even after reading over the charts that I posted I still got the feeling that one could get lost. Then I thought; there is no better way to learn than through example. So, that said, here are my two favorite homemade dog food recipes.
Just like the people in our homes, we want to make sure we are giving our pets the best. One of the most important ways we can take care of our pets is by taking care of what we feed them. We’ve all seen the advertising spiels on dog food and know that having meat as the first ingredient is important and that you shouldn’t see corn meal or other fillers too high on the list. But, even if you buy the best food on the market, nothing can replace simple homemade. It’s no different from making your own bread or laundry detergent; nothing can replace the good feeling of knowing, you know, what’s inside.
