Monday Munchies: Doggy Biscuits

I hope that you enjoy my new part of the blog of Monday Munchies. Boy and I both love food. I am mostly a French cuisine kind of a gal, but Boy just loves food, period. I agreed with Boy that we needed to do more blogs on food because nutrition is key to a dog’s behavior. Truth be told, food can drive it. So we are going to share different healthy recipes that we find. We hope you enjoy! And please share in comments below if you find a better way to make our recipes too.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prep your cookie sheet.

Boy the Old “Man” – Keeping Healthy with Dr. Harvey’s

IMG_9974

About a year ago, my friend made a beautiful necklace for me to include charms and pictures. I laugh thinking about when people ask me who is who in the pictures. I talk about my kids, Morgan and Belle (my two dogs) and then, my man (Boy). My bloodhound/lab mix has always been referred to as “my man.”

 

He has been with me 11 years now and I wouldn’t want it any other way. An 11 year old Lab/bloodhound, according to my vet, is an impressive age. To me, a dog’s only down fall is that they don’t live long enough. I can tell Boy’s spirit is still young, but his body is changing. He wants to play ball, tug, and run, but more often times than not his body doesn’t keep up. Sometimes he will be going up to the stairs and his hips give out and I have to catch him. Those moments are truly heart breaking reminders of our limited time together.

Seeing more changes then the gray in his face, made me recognize that the old “man” needs something extra in his diet because to me, FOOD IS MEDICINE. 

 

  

I was excited to learn of “Golden Years” from Dr. Harvey’s. Golden Years is a supplement created specifically for senior dogs to help them fight disease and possibly increase longevity. It’s an impressive blend of herbs that have been used to prevent chronic illness.

Check out the Ingredient list: 
Spirulina, Lecithin, Nutritional Yeast, Garlic, Flax Seed Meal, Alfalfa Leaf, Kelp, Rose Hips, Fo-ti Root, Bilberry Leaf, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf, Ginger Root, Licorice Root, Nettle Leaf, Rosemary Leaf, Burdock Root, Red Clover Blossoms, Suma, Yellow Dock Root, Marigold Blossoms

A few months ago I started adding the supplement to his food and was thrilled to see that he has increased energy and more days with a skip in his step than before.

Makes me think; dogs are lucky to have us to guard over their health. Certainly, the least I can do for the old man after all these years. Thanks, Dr. Harvey’s, for making it possible with such an impressive product.
