LOL. Riley would probably do that too, if he had the chance. But since he's the only "man" in the house, we never have to worry about the seats being left up!

But he seriously does drink bottled water. Nothing fancy - just the store brand jugs of spring water.

Molson is fed raw meat for his meals. He steals the cat's food and treats when we aren't looking, and he gets just about every kind of veggie and fruit as treats.

My guys eat Wellness Chicken, Dasuquin w/MSM, and fish oil. As goldens go, they have excellent skin and ears.

My two love raw veggies and fruits-I give them basically whatever is in season-watermelon, bananas, cantaloupe, apples, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, carrots, squash, zucchini, etc. besides their dog food which is Blue Buffalo. They occasionally get a bite of our dinner, very little and rarely though.

Ranger's regular meals are raw pieces of meat. Pork heart, lung, tongue, shanks. Lamb shoulder. Beef hearts, ribs, oxtail, green beef tripe (his fav). Whole fish. Whole partridges or cornish game hens. Chicken quarters, wing trimmings when I make homemade wings, once a whole chicken. Oh, and of course chicken feet. Duck gizzards and hearts. Venison. Llama. All that good stuff! Here's Ranger about to enjoy his first chicken foot ever (yes, he was so excited he went cross eyed).


If you look REALLY close, you'll see the chicken foot has NAILS.
Chicken feet? I was always told chicken for a dog was not good. Chicken bones I mean. When did this change? I am interested in feeding my Charlie (and my shitzu/yorkie) more of a natural diet. But have no idea where to begin. Do I just pick up the meat you have mentioned above in our supermarkets? What is the average cost of feeding a GR raw meat vs. something like Natural Balance (70.00 CAD every two weeks).?

Charlie drinks tons of water it seems! He especially loves the toilet if no one is watching.

Piper's list

Piper eats Earthborn Holistic Grain Free Primitive Natural.

He also gets treats, treats, treats. Did I say he likes treats?
I've tried about every treat available and some are a little pricey.
I made my first homemade carrot treats about ten days ago. The recipe made twelve treats and it was sort of pitiful because he stared at the cabinet so much, I let him eat all of them in two days. It was suppose to be a six day supply.

Piper eats pumpkin, apples, which he also temporarily uses as a toy, and peanut butter (the organic stiff stuff which goes perfectly in his Kong)
He occasionally get scrambled eggs and he has enjoyed a sardine or two or three, recently. I'm trying to make the eggs and sardines a regular thing.

He also loves to eat paper towels, any kind of tissue and the two old wooden chairs on the deck.

Brady's thriving on ACANA Grain Free, I try and get different blends every time I buy a bag, just so he doesn't get bored and also I don't believe that feeding him the same thing all the time is particularly good for him.
