Garrus & Tali – the puppies in my life!

Meet my Garrus & Tali. This is on the 4th of July 2015. Tali was just a baby. I made these adorable collars so they would be ready to walk in our town’s parade. I just tied strips of tulle & fabric to their collars. I love living in a small town.

Dinner for Garrus

My sweet Garrus has epilepsy.  We have been working for two years to get his meds figured out.  In August, he had horrific cluster seizures.  They were very scary and he had to be pheno loaded.  It took him over three weeks to recover.  He couldn’t walk during that time and had to be carried up and downstairs.  We almost lost him.  Fortunately by adjusting his meds he was able to rebound and is currently doing incredibly well.  He is peppy, getting into trouble, and chasing his ball.  In looking back at his seizures, it seems as though food, or something he has gotten into, has been a trigger.  I started researching homemade dog food and pieced together this recipe.  It is all good, healthy food.  It freezes well and will last for most dogs two weeks.




2 lbs ground chicken
1 1/2 cups brown rice
1 (15 oz.) can low sodium red kidney beans, drained
1 1/2 cups butternut squash
1 1/2 cups carrots
1 1/2 cups frozen peas
1 1/2 cups frozen green beans
4 cups water

I put everything in a 6-quart crock pot

and cook on low for 6 hours.  Be sure to stir it several times during the cooking process.

Cool and refrigerate or freeze.
