I have been keeping myself more than a little busy with preparing for the Art Star Craft Bazaar this weekend. So in lieu of a blog post from me, my pups have put together a post on their current favourite spring snack. I guess we will just call it the Puppy Spring Surprise Salad. Mostly because I am still surprised that they eat this sort of thing...
You will need:
- A handful of maple tree seeds. (You know, the crunchy helicopter kind)
- A pinch of onion grass (The smellier the better)
- The heads of 3 dandelions (for a garnish of color)
- A cup of clovers (for good luck)
- A smidgeon of regular grass (for texture and nutrients)
Toss all ingredients together until well blended. Season with some dirt to taste and add a few bugs if you are in the mood for a more exotic tasting salad. Serve outdoors in a free range manner. Serves two small pups. Mieze and Biene recommend doubling the recipe if you expect company.
I am not even remotely kidding when I say that my dogs eat these things every time I take them outside. I have looked up what it means when dogs eat this much greenery and usually it just means that they are about to be sick. My pups never get to that point, and yet they still keep eating these things. I would venture a guess that they are vegetarians, but the way they lick their chops when we are grilling chicken tells me otherwise.
I would complain about their affinity for these things, but I know that as soon as it gets colder again they will just start trying to eat the leaves that fall off the trees. When it snows they will try and eat their weight in snow. To my dogs, the outdoors is like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, everything is edible.
