This recipe is not for the faint of heart:

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of homemadedogfood.com for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Begin with 10 pounds raw ground beef.

Mix in 18 hardboiled eggs, shells and all.

Stir in 15 cups of white rice.

Add a few supplements, and wait for the crew to come running.

The “crew”, of course, is dogs; that’s an Easy cooked dog food recipe from Homemade Dog Food – a site put up by an animal lover that wants your dog to eat better than crunchy bits of… what is dog food made of? Styrofoam? I think it’s Styrofoam.

Store-bought dog food is expensive, and not necessarily the best thing for your dog.  Take it from me, a person who does not currently own a dog but who has owned many dogs in his lifetime, including one cockapoo named “Annabelle”  who we taught to chase rabbits out of my mom’s roses and once she chased one nearly a mile into town and the local police found her and called us and said they had her down at the station.  They fed her hamburger and she loved it so much that she ran away twice, each time going back to the police station.

So I know what I’m talking about: dogs love Homemade dog food; at that site you’ll find videos and recipes for making your own raw or cooked dog food for Man’s Best Friend – and tips that you’ll otherwise not know, like that one about putting egg shells into your dog’s food?  Allow me to quote from the site:

the egg shells supply digestible calcium to your dog. Yes, studies have proved that the calcium in egg shell is highly absorbable.

So there you go: Right from the horse’s mouth.  Yes, a horse is talking about dogs. What?

The site also has links to supplements your dog will love, and having checked out some of the recipes, I can say that they seem no more complicated than the one I began this post with.

Dogs shouldn't be eating rice, though. Eggs, yes, but raw, because that's how they'd eat them if they were wolves, and they are wolves. Just domesticated.
When's the last time you saw a wolf eat rice?

Yes, I'm being ornery.

oh my goodness. for a minute, i didn't read your sponsor thing and i thought this was a real, human recipe. i wouldn't dare challenge you to a bake-off with that kind of meat...

and by "that kind," i meant "that much."

and yes...it does sound super-awkward...

too much meat to handle!
