Typically a mature dog will weigh about two times as much as it weighs as a six month old puppy. So, if your dog weighs 50 pounds at six months of age, it will probably end up weighing about 100 pounds as an adult. This is something to consider when choosing one of the larger breeds like a German Shepherd.

This is the dog pie I made for Lakota’s birthday party. Lakota is a 1 year old St. Weiler who is a member of the K9 team. The pie is basically ground meat and rice. Can you see the picture of the dog? That was done by shaking brown sugar on with a sifter. Then a little black food coloring.
This pie is for the dogs!
The crust recipe is listed on this blog under the blueberry pie recipe.
3/4 lb ground meat
1 sweet potato, cooked (you can do this in the microwave oven
white rice, cooked (use enough to bring the filling up to the desired amont.
Mix the meat, rice and sweet potato together then add enough rice to bring it up to the amount of filling you need.
break an egg and pour it over the mixture to act as a binder.
put a crust on top and a design if desired
poke some holes in it with a fork
brush top with milk
cover edges with foil
bake 30 minutes at 375
remove foil from edges
bake 25 to 30 more minutes.
Do not use any spices in the pie for dogs, I don’t even use salt. only some sugar for decoration.
Do you brush your hair everyday? Your dog needs this too. If your dog is shedding fur, perhaps a daily grooming would help. Dogs, particularly those breeds that shed, benefit from a daily brushing. If your dog doesn’t like it at first, they will get used to it and grow to love it. Give them a few treats when you groom and start out slowly. All dogs know when you are caring for them and they will show it…you will probably get a few licks.
