Happy Chews

We got our delivery of doggie chews from Omaha Vaccine Company. Several 'kilo' packages of rawhide twisties, a new cotton knotted rope toy to chew and with which to play zoom zoom chase games, a few bully sticks and 10 pound box of hoof chews.

New chewies
Bully stick and a hoofie to go!

Boone and Zor took some of their treats off to their own corners to enjoy. Ruya sticks around nearby and celebrates!

Bully sticks are the best!!
Mine get raw knuckle bones, but only in winter because they attract flies all over the yard when it's hot. Nasty. Bully sticks are the cleanest and safest chewies in summer.
Question: Have you done any writing about traditional Turkish dog diets? I'm quite curious! Thanks. :)

Oh yes, they love those raw bones and bully sticks!

As to the traditional diet, those dogs that are fed regularly would traditionally be fed 'yal' and scraps. Depending on the region, it would be made with whatever is convenient. That's my understanding of it and I've been told different variations but never given cooking instructions until today.

I just wrote to a friend about yal because she mentioned it while speaking on another subject! Great timing! She feeds yal to an adult male Turkish dog and some to her puppies. The adult dog is one that she is keeping for a mutual friend as per his Turkish owner's request.

I will need permission to post the recipe or see if my friend will post it -- I'll give a pointer either way! :)
