Nikki’s Treats

photo1-380x506Hi, I’m Nikki, Kim is my new dad. Buddy and I used to play together every day…we were best friends too. I get to eat special treats my dad makes me. You should try some of these recipes on your 4-legged best friend too. Invite me over sometime, I love my belly scratched!!!

Kim Bailey here: I am a dog lover who has been fortunate enough to have had 2 wonderful dogs (Sampson & Buddy) who both lived a long life – over fifteen years each. In June of 2014 I lost my incredible dog Buddy…he was 15 years and 4 months old. I think of him daily and miss him terribly. Actually, I fed both my dogs people food primarily, supplemented with dried IAMS Lamb and Rice dog food, and while it is unusual for large dogs to live as long as they did – they both lived healthy happy long lives.

I’d put down his spaghetti and meatballs without parm, and he would look up at me, as if to say: “hey, you forgot something.” I’d pick it up, sprinkle on some parm – and he would clean his bowl.

I remember posting a picture of Nikki eating a McDonald’s hamburger on my Facebook page a year or so ago, and a couple people wrote that I was being irresponsible for feeding her such things. What? Really? She was just licking her butt and trying to eat a dead bird. I just don’t buy into that thought process.
