Hot Pot Dinners for Dogs

Everybody knows I am in love with my hot pot.

Everybody knows I am in love with my dogs.

Everybody knows that my dogs’ health comes first with me.

Everybody knows I try to save money where ever I can.

My four dogs are thriving on their diet that works on the principle of Fours.

Put into the hotpot,  4 carrots, 4 chicken leg hind quarters,  1 cup brown rice and 2 cups water.  Pinch of salt.

Cook this on the “Chicken setting” then let it sit until ready to serve.

To serve,  place 1 cup high quality dog kibble in each dog’s dish.  Top with 1 carrot each,  1 cup cooked rice,  with pan juices, and a hefty serving of cooked chicken.

Just let ‘em at it.

My dogs stay healthy and fit on this diet.  I recommend it.

Here is a picture of Earnest, who is now nine years old.

He was born in the middle of my bed.  His mother was Ginger, my old sweet border terrier – who I rescued from the pound and presumed had been spayed.

Earnest’s father was Rose’s pure bred dachsund who used to come around to play with Ginger.

These two got together and did the deed right behind the sofa and soon we had a litter of the cutest pups ever.

I planned to keep one, but one of the adoptions failed and one of the pups came back.

That was Earnest who had turned out to be my very best friend.  He sleeps with me.  He lays under my desk when I am working, he guards the house with all the fervor that a little guy can muster.  And he is a big fan of Hot Pot Dog food.

Lordy,  I love my dogs.  They are the light of my life.  Go dogs!.
