I have 2 books...
Canine Nutrition Naturally by Kathleen A Griffin.
(which will probably be hard to get, as I got it directly from a local author)
and
The Ultimate Diet by Kymythy R Shultze A.H.I she has a website...
http://www.kymythy.com/

I also have "The complete herbal book for the dog" by Juliette de Bairacli Levy -an oldie but a goodie, not so much about a natural diet though.

Then there is also " Give your dog a bone by Dr Ian Billinghurst.

Awww ....LOL! Too cute :D

Pups are doing well. Rex is getting more confident with us which is good (I think ;) ) They're doing well on their chicken wings and whole thighs and I've added some kidney to the mix for some more vitamins. I picked up some liver the other day but i'm must introducing things to them slowly :D They love their pigs ears too, but gee they're more expensive than they should be :( $30 for 20 pigs ears. I guess I'm paying for the packaging. I think I need to buy direct LOL!

I use the Ian Billinghurst books and feed raw - mostly meaty bones (chicken carcasses, lamb flaps etc), plus some offal or sardines once or twice a week and I use a juicer to mix up fresh fruit and veg (mix the juice back into the pulp) and to that add mince, yoghurt, eggs, kelp, brewers yeast and other smelly goodies :lol: They love it!

Been so busy I haven't dropped in here lately. Lovely to look at puppies :-)

Those two pups may still be siblings. It is amazing the variations you can get in a crossbred litter - remembering that they can take the traits if either parents in any quantity or mix (an example in the famous 'labradoodle' - in the one litter of a cross between a lab and a poodle you can get a dog that look like a lab but has a short curly coat, a dog that looks like a poodle and has a coat that looks like a terrier and sheds, a dog that looks like neither much at all and has a long curly coat, a dog that looks like any of the above and has a long curly coat that also has hairs that shed etc etc). Only in purebred litters will you get any real consistency across a litter (and even then it can vary to a greater or lesser extent).

Good luck with the baby too Carole, I hope it is going well. I get pretty mad when I hear of people (backyard breeders) who raise dogs with no care for their future or welfare.

Yes, I am a long time raw feeder. A page on our philosophy on our webpage: http://www.espinay.com/feedingourdogs.cfm

(Rhayden there are lots of links with more information on the bottom of this page so you can learn more about it)
