Ha, she just barked?? I made homemade beef jerky and left it on the counter in a bag and my oldest(Non GSD) decided in the middle of the night to get the cat to help her get it....yes she did have icky poop for the duration of the day..serves her right

Yes. She has this annoying, naggy, puppy bark when she calls me. It's unlike her GSD bark, it sounds like a little Pomeranian bark.
She sits there and stares in my direction, and if I don't give her the attention she wants, she gives me the little "yapper bark".. LOL

I apologize if I'm hijacking this post, but I wanted to ask a question about the occasional RAW meal. When I make a meal that involves chicken, I'll have either a defrosted, uncooked breast or two left over, or some of the uncooked bones left. I know I won't use the chicken before it goes bad in the fridge. Is it okay to just give him the raw breast and bones? Also, a neighbor offered me some frozen, uncooked deer bones with meat left on them as well as some of the organs; heart and liver I believe. Is deer meat okay for a dog?

Yes to all of the above. The deer bones should be treated as recreational bones.

Edited to add - if you are giving JUST the chicken bones you might want to add in some other type of raw meat. Giving too much bone can cause constipation.

@Laurie & The Gang: I'm the only person in the house who eats dark meat, so if it's a communal recipe, I always have dark meat and bones left over. That's good to know about deer bones. My neighbor is an avid hunter and he does his own butchering. He's offered to save bones and whatnot for Finn, but I've turned him down because I wasn't sure. My vet is completely against any type of RAW Diet and gets cranky with me because I put two raw eggs in Finn's food every few days, so I can't ask her for that type of advice.

Is buying an uncooked roaster chicken, butchering it, and giving him a little bit at a time a good idea? I would love to switch to completely RAW, but...that'll never happen. I would like to give him a portion of chicken or some sort of meat for his midday meal.

I give my dogs raw pork, they handle it fine...but as far as bones, I only feed the neck bones and smaller rib bones.
If some chops have bones on them those are ok, too. Sometimes they get gassy from pork. And some dogs just can't handle it.

Thanks. Fiona has been eating pork, but the link said not to feed pork.

Gabe does just fine on pork, and he eats it pretty regularly.
