United States of Motherhood: Yes, My Dog Eats Better than Your Kid!

Yes, My Dog Eats Better than Your Kid!

Last week's post was what I feed my kids.

This week, it's all about the dog.

Yes, to the left is my pup's food. I bet you thought it was a delicious salad, eh?

When Grendel died, I had already started a habit of feeding my dogs better, healthier food to try to counteract the cancer.

I don't know if it helped their health, but they loved it, Seb still loves it and it made my heart feel better.

So without further ado (and yes, I know some of you will think I am crazy to feed my pup better than some people feed their kids), Seb's repast today:


Start with some spinach, left over pre-cooked red peppers, and broccoli.

Not too much broccoli. No more than 10 percent of daily intake. Never onions. Sometimes sweet potatoes and apples.

Chop those babies up.


I still use a lamb and rice canned food base, shred some raw carrots and throw it in.


Add in above peppers, spinach, and broccoli.

Top with some delightful cottage cheese.

Doesn't it look delicious?

Mix it up.

Seb waits patiently, sitting as close as possible as soon as he sees the carrots being shredded.

He loves carrots!!


Ooooh, yays! Fewd for me!

Nom, nom

Snorfle, chomp

30 seconds later? All Gone!

My niece makes the food like that for her two pugs. It has improved their health greatly.
Our dog often gets apples, broccoli, carrots etc. but I do feed her mainly dog food because quite honestly the poor old girl would starve to death waiting for me to make her food.
My family is lucky if they get fed.

Is that a dog thing? With the carrots? My Beagle loves carrots. I've had dogs all my life and none of them went after my carrots the way this dog does. He likes them so much that if the kids leave their carrots unattended, he will snag them off of their plates! So weird.
