I just bought the Zukes Mini's for George and he loves them...and the girls do too. They also love string cheese and boiled chicken breast.  :2thumbsup:

My guys LOVE and will do back flips for the Merrick dehydrated beef or lamb fillets.  

I've been lurking here a while, finally coming out of hiding....
Check your bag of Merrick beef fillets.  My Olive loves them too, but there was recently a recall due to salmonella.  Drs Fosters and Smith makes their own version of these too.

Well CRAP!  I have a bag and of course, the 'best by' date is gone with the ripped off top!   :wall:  It's a bag I bought in Dec. so it's likely one of the affected ones I guess.   :veryangry:  THANK you for bringing it to my attention, olivebox!  I think I'll contact Merrick and see if they'll replace it.

Pieces of chicken/beef cooked with lots of powdered garlic. I also do the same thing with liver and beef heart and they love that too.

Then, not very healthy but they LOVE that soft billjac dog food too.

Cheese, hotdogs go down well too.

The Natural balance rolls have wheat in them, which is probably why Grady gets runny eyes.

I love the Merrick beef and lamb file squares. I also use Purebites beef liver and chicken breast. Or cooked chicken, cheese, turkey hot dogs, or freeze dried salmon.

Yup, that's it! I was shocked when I saw they had wheat! :o
