Dog Food

It sounds silly to me until recently. I just bought the good stuff for my boys, they deserve it. Now it's a new story. $50 for 40 lbs of dog food didn't really used to bother me, it was cheaper than ground beef. But then I couldn't afford $25 for 40 lbs of dog food. So maybe it's time to find another way to feed my 'other' kids. They already want to eat everything out of the garbage, what if we just make sure they don't get the things that aren't appropriate?

Say you make up a big pot of rice or noodles and have some leftovers, what about beans, refried or other meats, you know veggies are good for them. It's some nice protein. My dogs can smell a 1/64 lb Mcdonalds patty (just kidding) a mile away, I bet they would be just as happy to have the flavor with the volume. God knows that they stare at me like they know the difference.

Some recipes to follow, not sure how the dog will deal, but then they still bark.

Im avid dog lover and find the substandard dog foods very disturbing. Moreover, there are faulty dog food ratings avilable everywhere out there. Even dog food comparisons are of no use on many occasions as everything is sub standard.

My dogs love anything I cook. I can't gaurantee it's better than what's in the bag, but they do seem to eat it up while avoiding the bagged crap.

dogs can eat and survive and almost any dog food available. THRIVING on these is another story. Most human food isn't bad for dogs, just feed it in a more natural state, don't fry the burger for instance, feed it raw. Somethings to avoid as they can damage/kill your dog.

Onions (in any form, fresh, cooked, dehydrated, powdered)
chocolate
macadamia nuts
long bones from chicken
cooked pork chop bones
tea (black tea has the same ingredient in it as chocolate that can kill your dog)
caffine (it works about twice as well on them as it does us!)
to many greens (can cause bloating to unbeleiveable degrees)
grapes (in any form, raisins, grapejuice, jelly)

There are many others, but you get the idea, do a google search for dogs and food and you should get a list.

Some good foods include, sweet potaotes, broccoli, beef, chicken, pork, peas, carrots, green beans, apples, bananas, peaches, pears, chick peas, rice, oatmeal...
