Happy Thanksgiving All

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone !!!

We woke up this morning to rain which Mom is really happy about although I am not happy as that means my paws will get wet. Mom was explaining to me that the rain will clear the air so we can breathe fresh air again plus she can finally open the windows and air out the house. I do not care, I hate the rain.

So Mom told me to compensate for the rain she is going to go to the butcher today and get me my favorite bones, beef neck bone which I love to chew on, I am still not happy and yes the compensation is yummy but it means me still being stuck indoors.

As it is Thanksgiving Mom cooked me for this weeks meals, turkey and made me my favorite turkey treats, she is really trying to keep me happy and I am very grateful for that.

My turkey meal is made up of boiled turkey breast, pumpkin, broccoli and other veggies and then Mom adds supplements to each meal. The food is so good and there is nothing like home cooking.

What are the supplements :

Elder Dog – for Mobility and Immunity Optimal Health
Skin & Allergy – Supports Skin Health and Sensitive Skin
Multi Vitamin – For a good balanced diet

They are all made by a company called Licks Pill Free, so that means no pills but are gels which can be disguised in the dogs food and makes life so much easier. It is an American company of course and 100% Natural Holistic Remedies. What I really love about them is they are vet formulated.

To read more about them you can visit their site :

LicksPillFree

And best of all they have for cats too.

I have seen a big difference with Layla since feeding her them especially when it comes to her allergies so am really excited over trying them.

My Turkey Treats are made of : Ground Turkey, Broccoli, Pumpkin (I use canned pumpkin as it is easier to mix in), eggs and whatever other veggies I have on hand. I mix it all together, lay it flat on a baking sheet with parchment paper and bake on 350 Deg till ready. When cool, I cut up into squares, and put in zip lock bags – freezing some of the portions so that I have for the week.

So as you can see Mom has been busy in the kitchen while I have become the official taster, and what I love, HA, is watching Mom accidentally on purpose drop a bit here and there on the floor for me to eat. NOPE am not spoiled HA.

What are your plans for Thanksgiving ?

We hope you have a wonderful time with your family, and once again please keep your pets safe from all the Thanksgiving hazards.

What are we up to !

Happy Wednesday all,

We have recovered from the AiDS Walk and last weekend I decided to just relax and take it easy whatever easy is LOL. On Saturday I did volunteer like I always do but then the rest of the weekend was just Layla and Me, walking, and relaxing in the park. The weather was perfect for it and hopefully next weekend will be too.

And of course Madam has to do this :

Lets Roll and get Stinky

I am at the moment re-evaluating Layla’s food as I feel with her getting older am questioning her supplements etc plus with what I have been reading online lately with the no grain, yes grain, etc which is mind boggling and confusing I think the time has come to do it. Plus I already cook half of her food and make some of her treats so why not do the whole lot at home. (I use Grandma Lucy’s Macanna Premix for the extra supplements plus add others)

So with the research I am starting to go to the different pet stores in the city to see what they have, what is interesting and get more ideas.

On Monday we went to visit a store called SFRAW. It was an adventure for both of us as it took 2 bussess each way to get there and by the time I found the place we were hot and tired. Layla of course was in her backpack and I made the mistake of forgetting her cooling vest at home. Bad Mom.

What is SFRAW – They are the largest resource in California for people who feed their pets raw food. It is a great store with loads of products of all kinds, some were incredibly interesting like the frozen chicken necks which you can feed your dog, I am petrified to do that as the bones are small and have always heard that they are not good for your dog although I do have friends that feed them to the dogs and if they sell them then I do know it is perfectly safe.

They support local family farms that practice humane, organic, sustainable and pastured farming methods. So everything is really healthy.

They do not ship their products but their treats which they had which were slices of goats cheese, turkey hearts and beef hearts. Layla got to come home with the turkey hearts which she loves.

Their website :

SFRaw

I have started making Layla a new treat which she loves, and what I love about giving them to her is when we are on the go they can also be a type of food which is better in the long run.

The recipe is simple :

One pound of ground turkey or ground chicken or salmon which I chop up (I do not use ground beef as it can be fatty sometimes)
One Egg
Grated veggies like carrots, zucchini, broccoli and whatever else you want to add

Mix all together, lie flat on a baking sheet so it is about one inch thick, Bake in oven on 350 Deg till ready. (I leave it softish)
When cool I cut into squares and store in a ziplock bag in the fridge and take out as I need.

Bon Appetit !

So as you can see there is never a dull moment in our lives and as a good Jewish Mom one of my main focuses is keeping her happy and healthy as possible.

Madam is at this moment doing what she does best, sleeping and I am off here to carry on with my research and will keep you all posted in the next blogs with recipes. I am always open to suggestions so bring them on 🙂

Have a wonderful week all.
With love as always
Layla
