I am making Daisy Lynn’s food now.

Howllow Fellow Basset Hound and dog food lovers…

Well, feeding Daisy Lynn has always been a struggle due to her multiple allergies.  Grandma and I did everything we could to give her relief.  I found a dog food that gave her relief but she did not like it.  It was such a struggle to get her to eat everyday.  I felt so sorry for her.

So, I set out trying each ingredient one by one trying to find the right combination that would not cause her toe cysts and her massive itching.

Scrambled Eggs, (no butter or milk just liquid eggs) – check

But first I started with hamburger.  I bought the same hamburger that I buy for us.  92% fat free Laura’s Lean.  I cook that up, drain the fat then rinse the crumbles and add to the bowl. I crumple 3 probiotics for dogs over the hamburger and stir that up.

She did great and no cysts – itching still remained.

Then I added all the veggies just to see if that set her toes off…

Green Beans
Can of Pumpkin (Daisy in quality control trying pumpkin)


Butternut Squash
Sweet Potatoes
Blue Berries
Drizzle of Olive Oil

Wow – still no cysts. This picture is just for reference.  If I give her one tiny piece of cheese or a tiny piece of chicken she gets these nasty “meanies” (what Grandma calls them).

They pop up pretty rapidly if she is allergic to a food source so that is the good news.  I could move pretty quickly through my food experiment.

The problem is there is nothing really hard and crunchy in the mixture.  Going to all of this hoopla for her food I don’t want to add dog kibble into it.  So I am still researching something to add that is healthy, hard, and crunchy.  It would also stretch the volume out and make the food last longer.  For the love of DOG I think she could eat the whole bowl in a few sittings.  She is now eating me out of house and home!!!

I talked to her chiropractor and he said that dogs do not need carbs.  He did say I might want to give her a dog multivitamin.  So, I am looking into that.  BTW, her bones are in really good shape.  He did agree with me that she is gaining weight so to cut her back. (Good Luck with that)

Daisy loves this food so much (as you can expect) that she wants to eat about 4 times a day.

She goes absolutely wild for this mixture…She screams and barks and jumps and dances until I cave in.

But this is hysterical…

She always leaves one or two protest green beans.

She is so funny.  I cannot believe it took me 8 years to figure this out.  The itching still remains but that could be dust mites.  I did buy a fuller brush sweeper to try to control them better.  I will try that today.  It is really cute!

OK, that is all for now.  I have been ignoring my blogging again. I miss it.

Oh…One more picture.

Here is Daisy Lynn’s new Christmas blankee.  I got one too.  We love them!

More loving good food and warm blankees later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB eating rainbow burgers and no green beans;)
