For All The Dog Lovers Out There

Hi, my name is Sadie and I am 10 years old.   This blog is all about me and my health journey!   I was grunting when I laid down.   My mom thought it was arthritis so she changed my diet and now I don't grunt anymore!   Yeah!   Now I no longer eat the rubbery dog food that I loved instead I eat only my dry food with homemade bone broth twice a day.   I get 1/4 cup of this yummy broth twice a day and I love it.

How does my mom make my broth?

She saves the bones from the meals my family eats and stores them in the freezer until she has a big batch ready to cook.   Then, she puts the bones in her pressure cooker and adds 2 onions cut in half, 2 T apple cider vinegar (to pull minerals from bones), 4 large carrots, some dried parsley, 3 stalks celery, 1 bay leaf, 1 tsp garlic powder, ground black pepper and 3/4 pot full of water.  She cooks the bones for 120 minutes to pull all the minerals and good stuff out of them.    Boy does it smell good when it is cooking!   I know that smell and I get excited to drink up that yummy broth when it is done.   After cooking, she strains the vegetables off the broth and cools the broth in the refrigerator overnight.    The next day she skips the fat off the top of the broth and puts 1 cup of broth in sandwich baggies.   She separates each baggy with freezer paper and puts several bags in a larger freezer bag and in the freezer they go.    I have my own jar in the refrigerator just for my broth.  When I run out, she just pulls a frozen bag out of the freezer for the next day.   

She also uses this for any recipe that calls for beef or chicken broth so they get all the good benefits too!   My fur is so soft now.   I am a new healthier dog.    This may sound like a lot of work but I am worth it!   My mom sure does love me. =)
