Perhaps you’ve noticed I have been trying to get my egoistic colleague Chester L. W. Stephens to give more time to my food report. If you’ve been following The Daily Bone for a while, you’ll also know my credentials as a food expert. I am the DCI (Doggie Chief Inspector) Comestibles Division for this precinct, and therefore responsible for checking out all food that is brought into and eaten in this house for freshness, palatability, and quantity. I’m also the founder of the Yum Yum Coalition, and maintain the Yum Yum Coalition Safe Food Directory. I research and decide whether certain foods are OK for doggies to eat, and which are not.
So while Chester is outside chasing squirrels, here is today’s food report:
Mom’s lunch today was bhindi masala with added vegies, basmati rice, fresh tomato slices, a glass of guava nectar, and a cup of chai and some shahi jamun for dessert. I didn’t care much for okra in the bhindi masala, but everything else tasted OK. (As you can tell, Mom has been experimenting with Indian food lately.)
Dad’s lunch was a grilled hamburger patty on a bun with ketchup, relish, and onions, and a big glass of diet cola. As a rule, doggies should not eat onions even though they’re crunchy and delicious.
And finally, here’s our lunch time treat: left over basmati rice that has been simmered with butter and salt in a rice cooker. Heavenly! Now wasn't that fun?
