THE CLEOPATRA DIET

A really good friend of mine has a lovely GSD (German Shepherd Dog for those who don't know the lingo - I didn't know what a GSD was for the longest time although we had GSDs for the first 15 years of my life). Anyway his GSD is a little underweight, and doesn't pack as much muscle as my Cleo and Lucky, although he eats a whole load of very high quality keeble.

I have been asked what's the secret to Cleo and Lucky's fine physiques?!

See I personally feel that a good keeble brand is essential for the well being of our canine companions. It is however inadequate, no matter what the producers say... Cleo and Lucky are on BilJac, a very high quality keeble, but they also get fresh, human grade meat at every meal.
I call it The Cleopatra Diet... So what is in The Cleopatra Diet? Let's take a sneak peak into Cleo's kitchen...

Cleo in the kitchen - inspecting the quality of food that is being prepared

Chicken organs - before cleaning
All the fats and blood are removed
- yes there's that much fat and blood just from 5 chicken hearts!!!
Cleaned meat - fat free
Fresh chicken meat
All meat - chicken, liver and some organs are boiled with a little bit of fresh garlic for 20 minutes. Remember NO salt!!!


The boiled meat is cooled and packed into containers to be frozen
Meat is defrosted and heated before each meal...
Lucky waiting expectantly for dinner...
Meat is mixed with keeble...

Cleo, enjoying her dinner!!! Yum Yum...
Well there you have it folks, The Cleopatra Diet. Cleo and Lucky get a fresh batch of meat cooked every week, which is then frozen in small portions. They get a portion at every meal mixed with their keeble. Usually the meat that they get comprises of chicken with some liver and organs (very small amount of organs). Other times they get a mixture of chicken meat and minced lamb...
Cleo and Lucky get a portion of meat mixed with 1 cup of keeble. They also eat fixed amounts at fixed times every day : 9am and 6pm. Cleo and Lucky also don't really get very many commercial snacks, human food or even table scraps. This is what keeps them happy and healthy...

Ooooooooo delicious! Looks like minced meat to me, yum yum! My hooman also packs containers & containers of boiled lamb in the freezer. Unfortunately, we can't really take chicken, beef or pork so we just eat boiled lamb but that's good enuf! You should see Chloe's new yucky hot spots after eating baked jerky pig's ears & organs, have to shave off those parts & always clean her hot spots coz she always bit there to scratch it which coz it to bleed & have pus. Chloe now looks kinda oogly with bald hair here & there, lol! We also get boiled vegetables every morning meals. I hate it but it's mixed with everything & it's hard to pick them out so I just gobble it down but Faith on the other hand has very flexible tongue, she push out the finely chopped veggies but eat the rest. Wow! That woman ah...We also get soup which was used to boil the lamb, no garlic(but got garlic pills lah) oil or anything! Nice, plain & yummy! Then ofcourse at night we get to eat dry kibbles with sometimes raw egg or half boiled egg & butter. And for snack, we get hooman food & junk foods! Heeheehee...

Love licks,

Hey Amber,

Ha ha ha... you have to eat veggies! We don't have to. We just get pure meat!yum yum.

We're quite lucky that we're not allergic to any meat. So we get chicken (most of the time) with liver and heart etc, and every 2 weeks or so we get yummy New Zealand Mince Lamb!!!

Both Lucky and I love apples though. We get apples if Mommy buys them and we also get to eat it with yummy natural (sugarfree) yoghurt... delicious.

But no junk food for us.

Okay then Amber, take care..

Hugs
Cleo... & Lucky
