so much since it is prepared in front of the guests.  
Recently I have be=
en taking mental notes when I make a new dish so I can hand out the recipe =
if asked (I cook for 50 to 70 at our church each week and get a lot of requ=
ests for recipes).
We breed Long coat Chihuahuas and I make their food, m=
y dog food recipe is:
5 Lbs skinless and boneless chicken thighs
5 lb t=
in of cubed beef (Smart and Final has several brands) retain the broth, fat=
 and all.
4 cups organic brown rice
2 cups shredded carrots
4 cups ch=

Add the beef an=

I will give this recipe to my wife.   Our 2 long coat Chihuahuas are
the best, most loving, enjoyable dogs I've ever known!   And besides
all that, they are litter box trained.  That behavior is really a big
plus when it's cold, hot, raining, snowing , muddy, etc.
Oh - they do like to crunch the occasional roasted coffee bean that I drop.

where do you find the "skinless and boneless chicken thighs"  I make my 
own food for my dog too but all I can find is the breasts (which are 
expensive)

there is a never ending isue with cooked v. raw food for dogs.
About 6 years ago I switched to raw food for my dogs and it is amazing.
I use some rice w/oatmeal cooked as a base for their food adding fresh raw =
carrots, greens beans, yams and all sorts of other veggies that they like o=
r do not??@@
After a while your dogs will let you know what they will not eat green wise=
.
The meat I use be it chicken, beef, pork or whatever I get on sale each wee=
k from a local market that does not buy "garbage meat."
I keep all the oatmeal/rice in one container, the raw veggies in another an=
d the meats of course in separate containers.
some oatmeal mix, fresh veggies with some type of meat and they do great!!
mine also like a raw egg once or twice a week, in which case I put less mea=
t on their 
respective plates; a bit of cottage cheese now and them, yogurt if I am hav=
ing some they always enjoy!!
my little guy loves fresh sweet peas, always inexpensive (all veggies) at t=
he local farmers markets, my big 106 pound moose licks them clean and pushe=
s them to the side...
go figure.
I spend less money giving my dogs raw food,  they are more active...
just my thoughts on feeding dogs

Good recipe. I don't use anything canned, though, because Emma is prone to
seizures & I noticed that additives (and stress) trigger them.
Our grocery stores have boneless & skinless chicken thighs, but they are too
expensive. You can cook them in water, wait a day for them to cool (I remove
the layer of fat because my dogs get sick from the excess fat), then add to
a mixture. The resulting broth (I throw away the layer of fat there, too) is
used for both them & us - lots of collagen in that for them, too.
Sammy might be a long-haired chihuahua! He was a rescue, but purchased
originally at a pet store, (he was abandoned at the animal hospital my
daughter used to work at when she was a teen), so I figure he was a puppy
mill dog. He looks somewhat like a Papillion, too.
I will post some pictures on one of those photo sites, & post the link, when
I get a chance.
I love to cook and like Robert I never make a recipe the the same way twice.

Me, too! I consider cooking to be very much like painting (which I haven't
done for many years). I love to cook in layers - I've made mole a couple of
times, and while I don't spend days on it as some of the women in Mexico
might do, I did spend a few wonderful hours creating it, with lots of spices
and nuts and all - my problem was that I could take the spices, so I haven't
made it since.
It came out WONDERFUL, though... I love good mole... sigh..

Dennis,
Sorry I am late piping in on this thread.  They sell the 
skinless/boneless chicken thighs at the Commissary at both the Naval 
Station and at NAB Little Creek (right next to the chicken thighs with 
skin & bones).  They also sell them at Costco, but the Commissary is 
less expensive.

HI;
I apologize for interjecting here, however, I see something that is
potentially very dangerous here and I have to comment.
I must have missed the rest of this thread about dog food.  I am not
sure how this got started on the coffee list.  I saw your recipe for
dog food, and I may very well be missing something here, but I do not
see any bones in your food.  (bones must be raw to be safely eaten).
It is absolutely essential to have bones or a substitute in your dogs
diet to provide calcium / magnesiun.  Long term you will cause serious
harm to your dogs if you do not have bones or a proper substitute in
there diet.
Since this is so off topic for a coffee list, I highly encourage you
to joint some of the dog feeding lists that I am involved with.  Be
warned they are busy lists, with nearly 10,000 people on the main
list.
Main:
rawfeeding
Secondary, more casual list: (lower volume of mail)
rawchat
I am on the above lists frequently.  Anyone is always welcome to
e-mail me as well with questions about feeding there pets.
Warm Regards;
Jamie Dolan

We got on this because the group is (as others have mentioned) like a
coffeehouse experience - being human, we wander off topic now & then.
I'm not sure who you are writing to, as many have contributed here. I never
posted a recipe - maybe someone else did. I use ground up egg shells, but
admit that I may need other supplements for them. I don't feed my dogs raw -
don't feel that there is only one way to feed dogs, and many of the raw
groups are like - well, some are almost religious in nature. Tried it a way
back, and my dogs didn't thrive on it. I'm not opposed to it, just not
convinced that it's the only way..
It's good you mentioned this, though - I forgot.

That is very, very good advice, both the bones and dog food list.
