Dehydrator Experiment

When I have gone to the pet food stores recently, it seems there is a craze for dehydrated dog treats made of duck and sweet potato. They are quite expensive, but Drizzy and Chloe just love them. I decided to try and make my own version. I bought a couple large yams and got some free venison meat from a friend/hunter. Fuzzy sliced the potatoes into long pieces and the meat very thin. I wrapped the meat around the potato and placed in my dehydrator. Here is a before picture.
After about 7-8 hours both the meat and potato appeared done.

Here is a side by side picture of the store bought $10 a bag and my version (on the right). The dogs loved them!

Thanksgiving 2010

Fuzzy and I were up unusually early today. We went to nearby Dollar General to pick up 2 for $1 Hot Wheel cars. Fuzzy has to work, so we will celebrate Thanksgiving on Saturday... Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend!

Bath Day

Yes, even in winter bi-weekly baths must go on. Here is Chloe after her bath, wrapped in a towel with a space heater keeping her warm.... She prefers not to blow dry!

Rita's Jewels On Black Block

I just finished Rita's block today for the Jewels on Black round robin. It took me a while to bead the butterfly, it was my first attempt at it. I hope she likes it.
