Usually, dog food. Seriously, though, when I had dogs, often it was Authority, and while it was I believe PetSmart's house brand, it wasn't cheap.
Sometimes Iam's. or Purina Beneful, too. Occasionally Walmart's Ol' Roy, but I don't think they did too well on that. I usually mixed half dry and half canned food.
with a little water, not much.
try Nature Balance it is the best with no grains. My dog has always had skin problems and runny eyes and low energy until I switched her food. The difference in her health has been great. I only have to feed her once a day. It doesn't have to be this brand, just any brand that has no grain in it. Also, my dog is allergic to chicken, as are many dogs, so I always make sure whatever I buy has no chicken meal or by products in it.
Robert, the title could be ambiguous. Dog artists could be dogs that are actually artists, that compete with elephant artists, or artists who paint pictures of dogs.
The complete dog artist though I guess would be a dog that was an artist that also painted, exclusively, pictures of dogs, and possibly engravings.
Janine, I was going to say, about the trespassers, you are kidding.....right? But now I dunno, lol. Well, we are so protective of our kids.
We have just adopted a little rescue toy poodle, and because of all her health problems ( she had nearly starved to death on the streets), after conferring with our vet, I now cook for the dog, and sometimes even for us. I make a healthy, balanced crockpot of chicken, sweet potato, apple, green beans, carrots, and peas. She also eats what we do, as long as it is a balanced meal, and doesn't contain the things dogs aren't supposed to eat. She is up to a healthy weight now and the kitchen is her favorite room! She loves watermelon, but you can't give them the seeds.
Dont forget raw salmon. Our lab almost died from salmon poisoning. We feed ours Science diet - 1 cup twice a day. They weigh 70# and are very active. Our kitchen floor is always "tongue" clean. They get lots of "treats" from the table, but only tiny bits.
At the moment I'm minding my son's pig hunting dogs (I helped rear from puppies) while he's away working. He left me a chest freezer full of horse meat dog tucker (he shot and bagged up in daily size bag portions) which I alternate with Tux biscuits and so far have had no complaints. I give them any left over cooked meat out of the fridge that my cats are too fussy for too and they're happy with that. Minding them at various times helped kick start and inspired me to write my 'Tale Of Shredder' and 'Horsey Two Shoes' books.
Abbie is absolutely right about chicken bones.....never feed those to a dog. However cooked chicken without the bones is fine, Donna has a great list of things not to feed, and also bad are watermelon and apple seeds.
My dog eats dog food, but she will only eat Ol Roy, I tried all the high exspensive dog food, and she leaves it there and nibbles on it Like a kid that got a plate of brocolli, but she loves garbage cans, so i had to move them infront of the fence. If she has a tummy ach or I need to get her to take her flea meds I wil give her wet food. Mainly because if I hide it in anything else she makes herself vomitt or spits it out...
