Big bird, little bird, medium dog

Fed on 6/29, Friday.

Turkey morning

First up, big bird! This is turkey with slippery elm and turmeric. Slippery elm because of the occasional softer poops, and turmeric because it’s good for everything. I’m 67% sure that the soft poops are from the heat, but I still have to submit a poop test to find out if there are bad bugs in the belly.

Breakfast face

Dinner is chicken with some soaked barley. I’m trying to slowly put weight back on MP and my friend Laura of Crooks and Crazies suggested barley in summer, oats in winter‹. I forgot to ask why, but figured I’ll give it a shot since I’ve been doing the kefired oats in kongs. 🙂

Chicken dinner

I soaked the barley in fresh whey for two days in the fridge and cooked it with turmeric. Despite all the soaking and cooking, it was still kinda on the firm/very “Imma whole grain!” side, so I would’ve ran it through the blender had mine not been busted up at the moment. 🙁 I’m still waiting for Breville to replace my jar/blade system because my old one literally melted. I should’ve probably gotten the rolled barley in the meantime. It looked like it’d come out the butt the same way it went in. :S

  • This recipe looks so good, I want to eat it. Lol. Your dog is super cute. Thanks for the tips about the barley. I wouldn’t have thought to blend them up before feeding them to my dog. Thanks so much for the recipe and instructions on the process.
