Do you realize that I'm 11 1/2 years old and today was my very first home cooked meal EVER?
I've lived with mom and dad since I was 8 weeks old and I've had many different kinds of kibble along the way but I've never had a whole huge dish of the yummiest food ever! And it's just for me!
You're looking at ground beef and rice and spaghetti squash and 2 eggs - 1 yolk and the whites of two eggs - Mitch got the other yolk! And there's even a nice dollop of yogurt on top and of course my supplements are underneath the yogurt! And this is just one meal! I get two of them daily just like this one! Am I the luckiest girl alive, or what?!
Elaine has been there every step of the way and has given mom so much help and support and confidence! I can't tell you how much mom has been stressing about taking the plunge and doing this for me! She has been so worried that she wouldn't be able to provide me with the balanced diet that I would need to stay healthy!
And Ike's comment about the lacking protein in the Hills prescription k/d food kinda hit home with mom too, even though Elaine told her that she really should cook for me right from the start!
She I have you to thank for this too, Ike!
Just a few more bits of rice and I'm all done!What a treat! I can feel my kidneys getting better already!
A big huge thank you again and again, Elaine, and also to the K9Kidney group at Yahoo! There is so much wonderful information there and they are also very helpful and very supportive to dogs with kidney disease.
I think I'm going to be okay and my new home cooked diet sure does make me happy! I can't wait for my next meal!
So until next time...............
Love ya lots,
