My dog family
Sasha - Border Collie - Male
He was born on 7 February 1994 Richards Bay South-Africa.
He belongs to my daughter who lives in the UK. We have been looking after him for several years now.
He is in his twilight years. He has an unbelievable spirit still for his age. Sasha is on a special low fat diet; we can't exercise him too much, because of his rheumatism. Three years ago he suffered from a terrible ear infection in the one ear, and the one earlobe cartilage was permanently damaged. With the result his one ear lobe is now drooping.
Two years ago he started getting cataracts in both eyes. Now he goes a bit bump in the night but nothing too serious. We have decided not to put him through the trauma of getting it surgically removed. He is the most lovable of all my dogs. And still up there to please his master, despite his age.
Joep and Sasha
Sadly our beloved Sasha passed away 12 November 2010
Missing you everyday my brave boy
"I explained it to St. Peter,
I'd rather stay here
Outside the pearly gate.
I won't be a nuisance,
I won't even bark, I'll be very patient and wait,
I'll be here, chewing on a celestial bone,
No matter how long you may be.
I'd miss you so much, if I went in alone.
It wouldn't be heaven for me."

This is my first Traditional South-African recipe. It will be updated from time to time. I thought I would start with the unusual and unknown recipes first, which brings me to Offal, Tripe or like in my native tongue...
