Peanut is a Chihuahua – BIG dog in a small package that just does handstands for this recipe.  It must do him a lot of good as Peanut is now going on 12 ½ years old.

Older pups need more vitamins in particular Vitamin A, B, C and E.  The vitamin C is to supplement what they naturally make.  And a word about salt for older dogs – do not give excessive amounts of salt.

● 2-cups of cooked brown rice or you can even use cooked pasta (like macaroni bows etc.)

● 1 egg

● ½ cup cottage cheese

● 2 tbsp safflower oil

● 1 tbsp kelp (powdered usually works well for this and you can find this at a health food store)

● 2 tbsp brewers yeast

●1 tbsp bone meal (health food store)

●1 tbsp garlic powder

● Pinch of ginger


● ¼ cup grated cheddar and parmesan cheese mixed together

● sprig of parsley

Mix all of your ingredients together and warm them in the microwave.  Warm being the operative word.  Don’t totally cook it as the main ingredient has already been cooked.  Prior to serving you may sprinkle the cheese over the top as a garnish.

Add a sprig of parsley if you like as well for the doggy breath.
