    A quick question. I add a fair amount of fresh meat as topper to their kibble. The two pups are almost 1 year old and I was thinking to switch to raw. I guess they would probably need about 3.5% to% of their body weight in meat. Does it matter what meat you feed? With that I mean the weight including a bone or so. Although I am a very good cook, I would prefer to keep it simple by just cutting up the meat for them. All meat has roughly the same calorie content and I was going to add maybe 20% of veggies to the food, like peas, cucumber, carrots or apples. Any thoughts?

    I think we might have to shelve the raw food feedings, since we want to do dogs on wheels and they apparently frown on raw feedings. they worry the elderly will get Salmonella, when they lick their faces….. 🙂

    Well, whatever will happen i will try to hang on to the guys, because they are totally awsome. I hope stuff will work out but if not then so be it and one has allways options. Right now the two are having their 9.30 assassins game going, which is good so that they will get tired for the night, following assassins is going to be a 30 min walk, well kind of one of them is dragging finding every stick as a great excuse to linger while the other one is checking out the deer and foxes……Maybe I need to clone myself. great thing about them is that I have lost 20 pounds in weight, since we got them. the 20 I wanted to lose for some time….. Maybe i can rent them out as a weight loss tool. 🙂

    I just worry about the chicken bones, although the backs and necks are probably no risk, since they are not hollow.
