Gayle is a life-long pup parent and strives to create an environment for her pets which will allow the best quality of life.

A Guide To Happy, Healthy Pups

Through the years I have experimented with a variety of foods and mixtures. Trial and error has resulted in the perfect mix.

It takes less than an hour to make a 10-14 day batch which works out to about $2 to $3 per day, with two meals daily.

We're sharing the recipe so that all pups can be healthy pups!

Lovely Stew!


Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 40 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: 20 to 25 Large Portions


  • 1 kilo lean ground beef
  • ½ kilo beef heart, bite-size cubes
  • 2 cups rice
  • ½ kilo 9-grain cereal
  • 2-3 large carrots, grated
  • 2-3 cups beets, grated
  • 3-4 apples, peeled and grated


  1. In a large pot, cook grains as directed on package, usually 8-10 minutes.
  2. While grains are on the go cook ground beef - then add to grains when done.
  3. Cook beef heart and add to grain-beef mixture, stir well.
  4. Grate vegetables and apples and add to the mixture. Fold in and stir well.
  5. Fold in cooked rice and stir well.
  6. Let cool slightly and then put meal-size portions into freezer bags and freeze. There are usually about 20 portions.


For Lucinda, being a large dog of about 100 pounds, portions are about one cup of food, twice a day. Portions are frozen until ready to serve. Adjust portions to best fit your dog.
