Fur Babe Foodie - Tuna Casserole Puppy Style


 



My Fur Babe recipes are for dogs only. Dogs are scavengers and a variety of foods can be safely fed to them to improve their diets. (Cats are carnivores and must eat primarily meats to remain healthy.)

I recommend that you clear my recipes with your vet before feeding them to your own Fur Babe, and that you always provide your pups with a varied diet. I make several different recipes for my Fur Babe every week, as well as supplementing his diet with a high quality dry dog food.

I have never made a recipe that North does not devour. I began feeding him homemade foodie meals at two months old. I will never share one with you that is not a hit in his book.

 

Tuna Casserole Puppy Style





The choice of tuna in this recipe is very important. Some types of tuna are very high in heavy metals and should be avoided. I use a Kirkland brand of Skipjack Chunk Light Tuna that is free school caught and species specific. 







2 c. Rolled Oats - GMO Free if possible
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
6 Eggs
1 c. Sliced Baby Carrots - Organic if possible
2 - 7 oz. Cans Chunk Light Tuna in Water
1 Bag Frozen Peas - Organic if possible
Water






Cook the eggs and the olive oil to a large non-stick pot on the stove, over medium heat for three minutes.

Add the carrots, oats, and about four cups of water. Continue cooking this mixture, adding water if necessary, for fifteen minutes.

Remove the mixture from the heat, and add the tuna with water and the frozen peas. Allow the mixture to rest, (the residual heat from the egg mixture will cook the peas while cooling the rest of the ingredients), for at least thirty minutes, stirring occasionally. 






A serving can be given to your dog while warm - Not Too Hot - the rest can be stored, covered, in the fridge, for a few days.

My Fur Babe is still a large breed pup and finishes this amount of food in about three days. He also gets a serving of dry dog food in the mornings as a supplement.

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.
1.There is a big difference between a roach and a palmetto bug. Real roaches are the guys from New York. They infest, they are spooky smart, they are dirty and nasty, and you have to work really hard to get rid of them. Palmetto bugs however, are big and creepy and dumb. You usually see them outside at night and they will fly right at your face. They don’t infest because they are native and they can’t survive in our AC temps. 2.Every public indoor place will always be frigid. Most of your friend’s houses will be as well. I take a sweater with me almost everywhere that I go, and if I forget to I regret it. 3.Outside of weather emergencies, weathermen are superfluous. In the rainy season, which is most of the time, there is an eighty percent chance of rain, every single day. The weather man has no idea what time it will rain, how hard, or for how long, and there is no way for him to predict it. You just have to go out there with your fingers cr…
