Saturday's SLOP



This Saturday was S.L.O.P. night. Time for more veggie mix for the hounds. The tasty, but healthy ingredients included chicken liver, eggs, and goats milk.



The less exciting, but healthy ingredients included turnip greens, carrots, yellow squash, parsley, cucumber, garlic, and a pear.

So as often at you make meals for your pups, how often do you cook for yourself? :)

Crazy question here, have any of your pups refused to eat the "slop"? Carrie

Now that sounds like some good slop! I've got to make a batch myself in the next couple of days, and I like the idea of adding goat's milk.

Slightly OT: When you feed the gang chicken backs, do you pull off the skin first? (I'm starting to give my guys an occasional chicken back to help their teeth.)

That reminds me - I need to make some "slop"!

kf when I feed chicken backs I don't pull off the skin, but do pull off the really big hunks of fat, especially for Nick who's still adjusting to his diet. If I take all the skin and fat out of Rosie's diet she gets stopped up.

KF - I do not pull the skin off either.

Carrie - chicken liver, goats milk, and eggs ensure that SLOP cannot be refused. Some will refuse if you are feeding just veggies only... especially if they are weird veggies.

Brit - I actually busted out the crockpot this week and made veggie chili and veggie soup. Yay for me!

Thanks Jen and Zan. Silly Jacey was so befuddled by her first chicken back that she tried to lick it down to a size she could fit in her mouth. She gave up on that when she heard Sam crunch into his--I think she was worried that he'd finish his and come get hers. (They're both tethered to posts in the carport so they can't interfere with each other.)

No stomach troubles, and they've each had three backs in the last week (Tuesday, Friday, Sunday). I probably need to figure out calorie counts, though, to see how much kibble I should cut out of their diets. So far, I've just been substituting one back for one meal.

I fed my girls some of their SLOP yesterday and they loved it. I put spinach, carrots, yellow squash, broccoli, eggs, cottage cheese, some raw hamburger mixed in, and some peaches. They woofed it up. I only gave them a few tablespoons after their chicken backs last night.
