Christmas Dinner

I found a special treat for the greyhounds' raw food Christmas dinner..... turkey backs!

I have not seen turkey backs in the last few years. When I see the wings, legs, and thighs for sale at the store, I always wonder what happens to the turkey backs. I bet my friend with Ridgebacks would love those. Turkey backs are huge and would force her dogs to chew for a change.

That is a chicken back to the right of the turkey back so you can see how much bigger they are. I did cut off the skin and extra chunks of fat.

Katie tackles her turkey back from a down.

Allie tries chewing and carrying it at the same time.

Stacker uses the bottom of his crate as leverage to get his turkey back chewed up.

Reagan and Riley got to split a turkey back last night. That was fun for Stephen and I to cut in half :-).

Katie is now sleeping off her Christmas dinner.

Holy Cow! I've never seen a turkey back, and it's freaking HUGE! I wish I could have had a couple of those for the guys yesterday.

I hope you all had a great Christmas!

How yummy for the hounds! Looks like they could skip a meal with those huge turkey backs.

Yucky and yummy! You should have seen Lim and Nut today eating their turkey necks, OMG they were terrible at it, took them forever. I really thought Lim would tear into it like no one's biz, but she licked it for a good while and pulled the skin off first. weirdo.

I'd give anything to be able to find chicken backs again, used to use them when I had greyhounds and they were wonderful for keeping their teeth clean!
