I’d hate to be making dog food for a big dog. A chihuahua probably eats about as little as any dog and it seems like I’m always making dog food for her. I know it isn’t as often as it seems because I’ve been home from MO about 10 days, was gone almost three weeks so that pretty much means it’s been at least a month since I made it but a couple of days ago . . it was that time again.
It’s ground turkey, chicken livers, brown rice, ground flax seed, spirulina, peas and carrots, 3 or 4 boiled eggs, broccoli, grated ginger, ground calcium (egg shells), mashed sweet potatoes and mashed bananas. She loves it and I feel like it’s good for her so I don’t mind making it but I have to remember to watch the supply in the freezer so we don’t run out.
There’s 8 containers, 400 grams each. She eats about 80 grams of dog food per day, depending on who’s feeding her. She convinces Vince that she needs to eat about 5 times a day but I cook her an egg for breakfast, then she gets dog food about 10 a.m. and more dog food about 4 p.m.
So, if we stay on track with what we feed her, each container should last about five days and 8 containers should be enough for 40 days. That’s not too time consuming. She’s worth it.
