Jimmy answers:

Off the top of my head here’s one I tried with my dogs a while back and they seemed to enjoy it:

1 – 2 lbs ground chicken
2 cup rice
1 good sized sweet potato or yam
2 cups green beans
2 tomatoes
8 cups Water

Cook in a crock pot all day, the refridgerate. Serve warm/room tempature (1 1/2 – 2 cups serves 1 medium sized dog, makes about a week’s worth.)

Sandra asks…

What should I feed my puppy?

I’ve just gotten an 8-week-old Great Pyrenees puppy. I’m currently feeding him Newman’s Own Organics wet puppy food and some leftover Diamond Naturals Chicken and Rice I have left over from my other dog (also a Pyr) that recently passed away.

So I’ve always fed Diamond Naturals, mostly because it’s relatively economical ($22/40 lbs), but a lot of people tell me it’s not a very good food. I was just wondering, are there any other better foods that are in the same price range? He is going to end up a very large dog so it won’t be feasible at all for me to buy tiny 10-lb bags.

Jimmy answers:

I feed my pyrs “partial raw”.
For breakfast, they get raw or homemade dog food.

For supper, they get kibble… And I feed Diamond. What’s best is often a personal opinion. There are websites that compare foods, and while Diamond Naturals are not in the top lists, all the foods in the top list are very much more expensive, and many of our pyr friends are very happy with Diamond Naturals. No matter what dog food YOU choose, you’ll find someone who will tell you it’s a bad food.

The main foods I tell people to avoid are those with corn in the ingredients as dogs don’t really digests it.

If you have a slaughter house nearby, you can usually negotiate to get hearts, tongues, and sometimes livers or oxtails for your dogs very inexpensively. I usually make homemade dog food by crock pot cooking meat from the slaugher house, and about 1-2 hours before it’s ready, I throw in a cup or so of rice. As I turn it off, if it’s got a lot of liquid, I add oatmeal. The dog’s love it and it increases their energy level plus keeps cost of feeding down. I also buy those 8 or 10# bags of chicken quarters and those run about 49 cents/Lb to 59 cents/Lb when on sale.

Please join our Yahoo pyr group to continue asking questions, but of pyr owners rather than people who don’t know the breed. -!-

Richard asks…

I need suggestions for a food for after my sons baptism….. ?

We need some suggestions for food that can be on cooking while we are at the church…. in maybe a crockpot or the oven… We are having about 35ppl here at the house after the 10am services… we usually always have sloppy joes and potato salad but im kind of getting sick of that, no hot dogs or hamburgers any other good suggestions that not to difficult to make ?

Jimmy answers:

I’d say to prepare a sandwich tray ahead of time…ham, turkey, salami and cheeses. Plus, sliced rolls and condiments.

Or pulled pork sammies. Put a large pork roast in a crock pot w/ a jar of apricot marmalade and a couple tablespoons of bbq sauce. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. Pull it out and shred it…empty excess amounts of juice from crock pot…return shredded pork to crock pot. Serve on rolls w/ cheeses and condiments available.
