I know smoked turkey and ham is probably safe, but what about cornbread stuffing, green bean casserole (without unions), mashed potatoes, jellied cranberry sauce, deviled eggs (mayo, egg yolks, paprika, and a small amount of sugar), and pumpkin pie?

KZoppa I dont like the onions (never been a fan) so we make half of it with and half of it without. least we used to when we made it. Havent made it the last couple holidays. The half without onions we actually sprinkle cheese over it.

msvette2u I'm curious how you make (or why) green bean casserole without onions!? Doesn't that defeat the purpose?
Or do you pick it apart and get the onions out before serving it to the dogs?

KZoppa Thanksgiving and Christmas, our two usually get some ham or turkey without the skin, carrots, mashed potatoes with a little gravy, a small piece of pumpkin pie and a boiled egg. Green bean cassarole if we have it minus the onions.

LOL, I hope you have a can of dog food pumpkin around, because it won't be good coming out. I would hold off on the cranberries. Curious as to they react to the deviled eggs. Why to much spice in my book. I just got Tony a cheap 3dollar steak, which he totally loves.

Gharrissc My dogs will *probably* eat their regular meals,but a little less of it tomorrow because of all of the extra stuff that will probably be snuck to them. I know Saba and a couple of the other dogs love sweet potatoes. I will save out a few to divide between them when I cook.

spidermilk Yea my dog will be getting the plain, raw turkey neck and that is it. He would eat almost anything I would give him but I would rather not change his diet completely for one day.

No Problem...I don't bake so didn't know, but may be same family as nutmeg, so I would avoid.

Cinnamon is fine though

When in doubt - don't do it.

martemchik I avoid any and all spices. So I wouldn't do a deviled egg or pumpkin pie. Substitute with a raw egg, or a hard boiled egg with no fixinings. I would not give any mayonase as that's a lot of fat. Pumpkin pie can be substituted with straight mashed pumpkin. It's the stuff you'd use to make homemade pumpkin pie and not the already prepared stuff (Libby's has both and its usually right next to each other).

Meat is fine, I wouldn't do stuffing as its just carbs and doesn't really add anything for the dog (and they don't care that much about the taste of things). But the turkey or ham would be alright. Gravy out of a can is fine. Homemade...depends on ingredients used. Ham also might be very salty so I'd watch the portion.

I plan on slipping my dog some prime rib tonight, cut off most of the fat and also not give him any of the crust with salt and pepper on it.
