Sometimes Maggie will leave her food in her bowl all day. She’s not a big eater. By the end of the day, she’ll get to it, but she’ll only really eat when she’s truly hungry.
Today, we got a shipment of raw beef for dogs. It felt strange putting hamburger meat in her bowl and letting her go at it, but the manufacturer is a high-end dogfood provider so I decided to trust it.
I have never seen her attack her food like she did tonight. It was down the hatch in seconds.
It made me think more about what her ancestors ate before dogs were brought into the home and looked after by people. They for sure didn’t have stoves or even campfires to heat up any tasty morsels. Raw meat is probably what they ate for the most part. I found this article that mentions that dogs very often ate rats (http://www.historyforkids.org/learn/economy/dogs.htm).
I created a video here so you can see how I prepared it and how she dug right into it. No hesitation!
