Welcome to our blog and all things Bolonka.

Enjoy your visit; I am certain that after you have acquainted yourself with these lovely dogs you too will agree that the "Royal Lapdog of Color" are truly one of the finer things in life.... or as we refer to them. "Treasures".

Squeak on a car ride

I'd like to share some pictures of a little one we call "Squeak".  This little cutey is sitting in the passenger seat looking...well...darn CUTE.  Doesn't he have the sweetest little face!

Homemade Doggy Chicken/Rice Dinner

I love cooking for my dogs.  I do not feed strictly homemade...but I supplement their kibble with it.   The dog food is people food...or perhaps I should say I cook for myself and share it with my dogs?  Either way...the food can be eaten by human and canine alike.  Today I made chicken/rice.

Doggy Chicken/Rice Meal

10 lbs chicken legs/thighs (with skin/bones)
1 lb carrots
1 stalk celery (not rib)
1 teaspoon salt

Cut the carrots/celery in half.  (3-4 inches long)
Add all ingredients to large stock pot.
Bring to boil.  Simmer for 90 min.

Remove chicken and vegetables from pot.

Make pan of rice (brown or white) using the chicken broth liquid.
It looked so good...I had to eat some!
Left over rice, ready for the freezer.

De-bone chicken.  Set aside bones/skin.   (sorry no picture)

For the dogs...I chop the chicken and carrots into bite size pieces, mix with cooked rice (60/40).  I add this to their dog kibble.  Freeze what is not eaten.  Thaw and feed, as needed.

For myself....I used my half of the chicken meat for chicken enchiladas

Bones/Skin - put those back into a pot, cover with water and boil for another hour.  Strain.  Use for boiling pasta, rice, oatmeal, or to moisten dog kibble.  Freeze unused broth (can use ice cubes trays) for later.

Left overs..doggy dinner tomorrow.

So, folks..that is what I cooked today.   I hope you enjoyed.
