Can I Have Some Of That?


The tall guy was reading Da Puddles blog the other day and came up with an idea (which, much like the hair growing on his head, happens less and less each day).

To all the dogs, puppies and feline puppies of the world:

What would you think of doing a cookbook that has recipes FOR dogs and (wait for it, here's the big part) BY dogs (and feline puppies) too?  This would be a recipe book that both you and your peoples write.

A lot of peoples cook things for their fur-iends that look and taste really good, so that part would probably be pretty easy.  And, like Da Puddles, I'm sure that some of you could come up with some pretty tasty recipes too. (But no poop.  I don't think we need any poop recipes!)  I have some of my favorite recipes in my book, but I don't think it would be stealing if I used one of them again. 

If we can come up with like 30-50 recipes, the tall guy said he would put them all together and make it into an ebook and put it on Amazon.  Then we can give ALL the money we make to a good cause.  We can have your names and your picture in the book and everything.

So if you would like to help raise some money for someone (we can decide who after we see if there's enough interest), just leave a comment below.  If you know someone who doesn't read blogs, but might like to help, leave a comment below too.

From the tall guy:
I think it would be fun to do a 'cookbook' that features recipes for dogs as well as recipes that are written BY dogs (and feline puppies of course, Madi and Oz!).  If it is done as an ebook, there is basically no cost and then all the money raised would go to a good cause.  I figure we would need about 20-25 "real" recipes and an equal number of "dog-i-pees" (which are recipes written by dogs and not anything to do with pee).  So, if you are interested, please let me know.  Do not leave any recipes yet - I'll contact you and let you know where to send your recipes.  Thank you!!

  4. Waiting for a book with such delicious and healthy recipes for my cute Jack. Because Pets Food and Nutrient are much necessary for our pets to keep them healthy and active. And good food helps to make strong immune system to resist against diseases.

  8. You want what? Bwahahahaha! Yep, I'll have to steal one of Faded Roses' recipes. She actually cooks. Ninny warms up take-out. But I'm sure Tootie could find a recipe that she is particularly fond of.

  15. Cool idea, Jack! I'm sure Mom could whip up a recipe for the cookbook! (I have so many food allergies, she has to improvise a lot!)

    BTW, she's been giggling up a storm while reading your book!
