    Well,

    Brekky varies: from kibbles to left overs. Sometimes I even feed toast. I usually buy supermarket brand kibbles mainly Supercoat or Natures gift (chicken). I often mix with yogurt.
    Dinner: mainly raw diet varying from chicken drumsticks to whole sardines
    Treats: boiled pork, oven baked chicken breast, Lamb liver, carrots, fish cake

    Why: Feeding raw at night time works better for us to manage dogs' toilet habit.

    I feed my dog a frozen brisket bone, chicken carcass or turkey neck in the morning. In the evening she get a scoop or two of kibble (currently advance large breed as i like the larger biscuit size). She sometimes gets left overs from dinner, or offcuts ect. with her kibble.

    Mindy is a chewer, so a bone a day hopefully helps keep the property damage to a minimum! As for the kibble choice, I've tried a few and advance is the only one she seems to eat consistently.

    Monday - Thursday I give my baby 1 Raw4Paws pattie in either Kangaroo, chicken or beef plus either a free range turkey neck, chicken neck, chicken frame, lamb necks, kangaroo bones, beef brisket bones or raw venison pieces as dessert.

    Friday is whole spatchcock or whole quails - depends on which is fresh and available from the butchers.

    On the weekends - I have some spare time so I buy some wild rabbit from a butcher in the city and make a stew- adding carrots, green peas, celery and sweet potatoes. serve it with organic brown rice.

    During the winter months I'll make watercress soup or pumpkin soup and him give a bowl before bedtime.

    every day I give my dog Lifestreams Spirulina, wheatgrass, green barley and chlorella supplements. Also use herbal heartworming and intestinal worming.

    I'm doing all this because I love my dog and want him to have a long life of good health, happiness and joy.

    Hyacinth - my fur baby is very important to me. I'm madly in love with him. He's so unique looking and beautiful inside/out. I know if he was ever unhealthy and sick than I can never find another one like him & loose him forever. I try very hard to get him in the best of health and want him to live beyond his life expectancy so we can share many happy memories.

    Thanks for the comment on my little red riding hood look. The hoodie is my fav as it helps me get through the current chilly brisbane weather.

    My boys are fed a combination of kibble and raw meaty bones with kibble normally for their morning meal and bones for their evening meal and sometimes I may swap things around with giving them raw days (i.e. raw food for both morning and evening meals) and kibble days (i.e. kibble for both morning and evening meals).

    The kibble I feed them is Black Hawk Holistic which is produced here in Australia and it contains no artificial colours, flavours or, preservatives, and no corn, no wheat and no soy. I also add the following to their kibble over the course of a week on different days: raw eggs including the shells twice a week, plain greek youghurt or lot fat cottage cheese twice a week, finely grated or cooked mashed veges once or twice a week and sardines once a week.

    I give them a variety of raw bones such as brisket bones, lamb neck bones, chicken frames, chicken wings, chicken maryland, chicken drumsticks, turkey wings and turkey legs.

    We were on Innova - were told its the BEST natural dry food (this was before we brought our GSD) so when we finally got him, we went out and brought a big bag of it. We stuck with it for awhile - Innova is $170 for a 20kg bag - VERY EXPENCIVE, and hard to find in most pet stores, so when the store closed down, we are now on Nutro natural choice ($115, for 20kgs).... Hes been on his for about 2 months now, and have developed dry skin - hes been chewing at his legs, has missing patches of hair down all 4 legs (POOR GUY).
    We are on the last little bit, of that 20kg bag, so we are now going to try Royal Canine German Shephard Junior ($105, for 20kg) as its ment to help GSD with there skin problems.....

    I give him also our own mixture of raw meat, veggies, and rice/or pasta.. but i think i might just buy BARF...
