Dinner at Chez Dog

I've got lots of extra potatoes (on sale, didn't get around to eating) so tonight boiled up some reds and some russets for the dogs. I carved out the sprouted "legs" - which is what I always called them as a kid, they terrified me - but left the skins on. After they cooled, I stirred them up with some veggie & herb puree that I made yesterday (from various leftovers) for use in dog biscuits. The puree didn't turn out to be the consistency I needed for the biscuits unfortunately so it's off to the dog bowls with that. For protein, I opened up some canned sardines in tomato sauce. I always keep those in the cupboard - as an economical convenience food and something to provide variety and essential nutrients. Dr. Strombeck recommends them in his book and that's where I got the idea originally.

Hey neat, I never thought of using the sardines in tomato sauce, I usually buy the ones in spring water.

I'll bet the tomato ones are less salty, too.

Thanks for the tip - I feed my guys sardines every now and then. Canned salt-free salmon, too, when it's cheeeeep.
