Some of you know we have an elderly and ailing Harrier Hound named Buster. I'm having to cook his food now. Here is one recipe he just gobbled down and licked his chops! It does me good to see him enjoy his dinner.


1 1/2 lb
ground chuck
1 small
can low sodium peas and carrots
1 c
cooked brown rice

Directions Step-By-Step

Place ground beef in a crock pot and chop it up good. Cook on high for 2 hours until meat is cooked through.
Stir in rice and vegetables. Cook on low for 1 more hour. Stir and break up any lumps. Cool to near room temperature before serving. Store in covered container in refrigerator.
This recipe can be varied with different vegetables; grains such as barley, wheat, and oats; and different meats like turkey, chicken, salmon or liver.

We had a precious Foxhound female named Lady who lived on a farm outside for most of her life. In her Autumn years at 13 to 15 she lived inside our home. Regretfully, she had to be put down after long suffering with cancer. A very bright light went out in our lives that day. She loved my kitchen and all the treats reaped while I was cooking and cleaning up meals. We served our dogs meat and brown rice often.

Aww that's sad for Buster.

We have another dog, going on 15, who is part golden retriever. She has lost some weight and the vet told us to give her more carbs and less protein because protein makes the weak kidneys work harder. protein make them drink more water. The carbs will help put weight on. So we are giving her more carbs.... one suggestion was giving her Nilla wafers instead of her doggy biscuits. She loves that!
Jake is my favorite to walk cuz he just walks, barely stops to smell! Doesn't like to stand still on a leash and will start to fuss. His favorite thing to do on a walk is bark to get other to dogs bark back.
Go figure!

I know - it smelled so good and I was tempted to add salt, pepper, and a little rosemary, but I don't think that would have been good for the dog.
