Don't ferget to add some oil of some sort. a tsp. of Canola from the Canola bush, or Olive Oil from Popeye, fer the coats. Auntie's Dobes are lean on this diet. I'm firmly convinced that out dogs are eating far too much heavy carbs. Once in a while I will use brown rice, but remember this has to cook around an hour. I always prepare the next meal as soon as the former meal has been served. That way it's alus ready, and good temp. and my dogs LOVE THIS!!
