i think a dog will live longer, and be happier, if he gets some hot dog now and then.

Although GreenMachine post is over a year old... I agree with this...

The dogs were Healthy then and Worse off Now-a-days because of the "convenience" of dry kibble, just as easy as, pour into bowl, set on the floor... wait for the kidney disease and cancer to set in. The so called "table scraps" term sounds "bad" I guess, but we should really just call it "human food" or just Real food that dogs should eat too.
Because it (human food) is in fact more real and true and natural food than Anything you would find from a bag of dry processed "dog food" that has also been sitting on the shelf forever! (providing that "we" are not eating junk because "our" food habits have changed for the worse from many years ago too)

All these foods/and ideas are just great, and Real true Food, not all processed into,... nothing really anymore.

This evening she had more raw chicken with leftover steamed butternut squash and peas. I like to through in a little salmon oil and safflower oil also.

The one thing I never feed my dog is that cheap horrible commercial dog kibble.


Aint this the Truth!!!
Cancer in a bag,... But it is so convenient and people are too busy...

OOOOhhh I know that blueberries are great for them, even my cats love them!!!

Way to go!!! And Less money! For all of you that say pet food is too expensive, here you go!
