No need to buy one here - just have to step outside and grab some from an unplugged freezer (it's -40 F)

I remember when I was exploring colleges and looked into UAF, one of the "student life" reviews about the school was that students would hang bags of food out of their dorm windows in the winter to keep things frozen. At the time I thought that was too cool (no pun intended ).

Being from Washington state I was amazed at how many people didn't worry about the salmon. The neighbors dog in Alaska would eat the remains of cleaning the fish. I questioned this also as I remember a neighbors dog in Washington dieing years ago. I don't know anyone in Washington that allows their dogs to eat salmon uncooked.

One day when I was cleaning fish in Alaska my dog came up and swiped a small piece. He normally gulps food imediately gone. With the salmon he rolled it in his mouth tasting it for a minute or so. Then I had to gaurd salmon from him. He loves it. One of my friends takes all the scraps and cans it for her dogs. She gave me quit a few cans and he loves it!!! He gets more excited for the salmon that he does for steak!! His coat got a nice gloss from it and body weight increased, as he always has been underweight.

She actually used to have a dog that would retrive salmon out of the river that she would trade to the mushers.

My dog LOVES salmon, too. He gets a partial can mixed in with his kibble every day. His whole body starts wiggling all over the place and he runs into different household objects as he's throwing his head around in eager anticipation. Big dork.

In some parts of the country, Hardees became Carl's Junior, but the menu is so different. I remember Hardees for fried chicken, burgers and great sausage biscuits and gravy. Yum.
