I bet we all agree that dogs are our life companions. God gave us dogs so that we wouldn't have to walk this through this life lonely. So we desire to have them with us as long as we can! I am a firm believer that the best way to extend your dog's life, and together time, is through the foods that you feed them. Quality foods are what our human bodies require for longevity, so it would follow that a dog could thrive the same way. As I've written many times... dogs need a colorful diet full of fruits and vegetables and closely imitating what their wild cousins eat. I don't always cook for my dogs but I know that some of you do... and some of you are like me and make homemade meals for poochie on special occasions. Well, I found a recipe recently in the book, "Reader's Digest Homemade; How to Make Hundreds of Everyday Products Fast, Fresh and More Naturally," for a fancy meal that will knock your dog's socks off! The recipe includes safe vegetables for your dog, as well as whole grain brown rice and yogurt for digestion. The oil also adds a little fat and will help your dog's coat shine. Of course this isn't a balanced meal for everyday feeding but it is a treat that will undoubtedly make your doggie feel as special and loved as they make you feel! Have fun and let me know what your dogs think of this neat treat.
1 cup shredded carrots, raw
1/3 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 cup fat-free plain, live-culture yogurt
1/4 cup salad oil (like olive oil)
Mix carrots and rice then mix yogurt with oil combine all and serve!
