I rruff this recipe!


Depending on the size of your dog, you may have some of this homemade dog food left over. If you do, keep it in a tightly closed container for up to five days.


Also, it is impawtant to remember not to overfeed your dog.  I know because I have a tendency to gain weight and that is not good!  For more about this and pet obesity, you can read this article from Pet MD.

Kitties can eat this recipe if you remove the veggies. In other words, cats can have only the the liver. This is because kitties are carnivores and they do not require vegetables at all.  In our house, Mimi gives me the liver with vegetables and she picks out pieces of liver for the cat. This way the kitty and I are both happy and well fed!

I Love Liver!

I Love Liver!

It’s no surprise that I love liver. After all, I’m a dog.

Every once in awhile and not often enough to suit me, Mimi brings home  a package of chicken livers from the grocery store. She says that liver is good for both Hazuzu and me and she likes to feed us well.
She bought some a few days ago and decided to cook it yesterday. Her cooking method is easy; I’ve watched her many times. There is something about the smell of liver simmering on the stove that thrills me no end.

Love your dog with liver!

This is how Mimi cooked yesterday’s chicken liver:


1. Package of liver (either chicken or beef);
2. Oil to cook the liver in. This could be something like safflower oil, although Mimi used olive oil.


1. Warm a frying pan;
2. Pour on some olive oil;
3. Cut the chicken liver into small pieces;

4. Fry the livers until there is no pink color;
5. Let the liver cool;
6. Feed any dogs and/or cats that happen to be around;
7. Save leftovers in a container with a lid. Refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Mimi makes enough for the kitty and me to have about 1/2 bowl every day for a few days.
