Gracie is now 13 years old!

For nine years she's eaten REAL, HOMEMADE FOOD, NOT commercial dog food. This blog shows how easy it is to be a DOGGIE CHEF and how healthy a home-fed dog can be.

Birthday Doggie!

We had a birthday celebration at our house recently. Of course Gracie was included in the fun. She did NOT like wearing the birthday hat. Yet being the wonderfully patient pooch she is, she let me snap a few photos of her wearing the hat.
What a dog!

Here she is looking very serious and thinking, "Let's hurry up and get this over with.":

Now she's thinking, "If you're going to make me pose in this ridiculous hat, could you please not shake the camera!":

And finally: "Okay, I can't take this anymore. The hat's coming off!":

Introducing Doggie Chef Deb Steckly & Kane

I'd like to introduce everyone to Doggie Chef Deb Steckly and her beautiful, home-fed dog Kane. I "met" Deb and Kane on my blog two weeks ago. I was so happy to see another healthy, happy home-fed dog! Kane is a rescued Shetland Sheep Dog. He weighs around 45 pounds. Deb says she's been cooking for Kane for 10 years. He eats two meals a day. Deb says Kane loves, "so many vegetables, all meats, fish, potatoes and rice and cheese." Deb and Kane are from Carleton Place, Ontario, Canada.

Deb owns Just Cats, a professional in-home cat sitting service. Just Cats specializes in caregiving for cats in the comfort and security of their own home environment. What a GREAT idea! Find out more about Deb and Just Cats on her blog at:

CALLING ALL DOGGIE CHEFS: Are you a Doggie Chef? Do you cook homemade meals for your dog? I'd love to feature you and your dog (or just your dog, if you're camera-shy) on this blog! If you'd like to show others how happy and healthy a home-fed dog can be, please email me a photo (jpg format) of you and your dog. If you prefer, you can send a photo of your dog only.
My email address is:
Tell me your dog's name, your name (a first name only is fine), how long you've been making homemade meals for your dog, your dog's age, and the city/region and country you're from. I hope to hear from you!
