Cooking for Two

I had been thinking about adopting a rescued dog for the past 6 months. I really thought for sure it would be a pointer but then Monk seemed to just come into my life. The rescue he was being fostered at has a dog at the barn where I keep my horses and she mentioned they had just gotten this St Bernard only the week before that had been abandoned by his family of 7 years!! Since I love big dogs I asked to meet him and then decided to foster him for a couple weeks while I decided. Well I have adopted him, medical problems and all. You see he is a senior (for that breed) and is heart worm positive with already heart damage. He needs a loving home for the rest of his life.
He is the kindest, gentlest soul you'd ever meet and is also the most inactive couch potato I have ever had! If you need a pillow, he's got that covered!
He has one main maintenance problem. He doesn't want anything to do with actual dog food; especially kibbles! I wonder what they fed him in his before life! He had to eat to get this big!! (145 lbs) I've never had a dog that wasn't food motivated!
So, since he needs food in his stomach to take his numerous medications, I now cook for two! Him and I! We're eating the same thing.

Monk . . . are you training me?????
Your new mommy!

Oh yes, and Rocky now wants chicken added to his food too!!!!


  1. OMG! Too cute. But that is the best food for dogs, at least you know whats in it. I am so glad you adopted him. I love that pic.

  2. OMG too cute - he looks like such a loveable lug!!! I bet, in the long run, you might actually be saving on dog food preparing it yourself!

  3. OMG what a cure, loveable lug! I bet in the long run too, you might actually be saving by making the dog food yourself!

  4. Glad you've 'found' each other Shirley. I don't blame Rocky putting in a request though ;o)
