Overview

Just as humans need to eat the right balance of protein, vegetables, and whole grains, so do dogs. But where do we find the time to cook special meals just for our pets when many of us struggle to feed ourselves healthfully? With The Dog Ate It, there's no need to prepare separate meals. Developed by an award-winning cookbook writer and a rancher, The Dog Ate It is the first cookbook with recipes designed for dogs and their owners to savor together, such as:

• Chow Bella Burger Bites, Beef Teriyappi, Sausage Cheese Grits, Growly Good Granola, Beggar's Purses, Cheddar Chomps, Sushi Hand Rolls, Dog-Friendly Salads, Chicken Soup, Adobo Chicken, Good Gravy, Turkey Meatballs, Lamb Shish Kebabs, Canine Kasha, North Carolina Pork Sandwiches, Roasted Pork Chops, Pekingese Duck, Mom's Macaroni and Cheese, and more!

• Treats and Desserts from the Barkery include: Pumpkin Craisin Muffins, Tarte Tatin, Bowser's Brownies, Carob Ganache, Coco Loco Bites, Counter Surfer's Cookies, Banana Mutt Bread, Barking Biscotti, and Peanut Butter Buddy Bones

With good nutrition guidelines for dogs of all sizes, a list of Doggie Diet Dos and Don'ts, and what foods to have on hand so you can invent your own Fido-friendly recipes, The Dog Ate It is perfect for an occasional treat or for every night. You'll learn which commercial dog foods are healthy substitutes for home-cooked grub, and even how to throw the perfect pooch party for Howl-a-Ween, Canine Christmas (Fleas Navidad), or Bowser's birthday.

Few pet parents can resist sneaking table scraps to their pups. The Dog Ate It takes this principle to a marvelous new, guilt-free level, with recipes that please the palates of every member of your household. BACKCOVER: “When I realized that THE DOG ATE IT was about meals for bipeds and quadrupeds to share, I feared the worst, namely, that dogs were running the culinary show and that I would be expected not only to cook and eat homework, but to prepare and consume such canine favorites as desiccated pigs' ears and rawhide chew strips, not to mention rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, and other delicacies so fresh that they were still alive. Fortunately, my fears were unfounded. The recipes in this delectably eccentric cookbook are designed to delight dog lovers as well as the objects of their affection. Highly recommended!”
—Susan Conant, author of GAITS OF HEAVEN and other novels in the Holly Winter series of dog lover's mysteries

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The American Pet Products Manufacturers Association (APPMA) 2003-2004 National Pet Owners Survey reveals that there are at least 65 million owned dogs in the United States and that 40.6 million households own at least one dog. How many of these devoted owners feed their pets from the table is anyone's guess, but award-winning cookbook author Eckhardt and her colleagues present a novel solution: a compilation of recipes suitable for dogs and humans (e.g., Teriyappy Stir-Fry, Growly Good Granola). Tasty-looking and healthful, these recipes are great for home cooks who want to cook for themselves, their pets, and family and friends. No nutritional values or caloric content are included with the recipes, but the acknowledgments section cites veterinarian advisors. Still, pet owners should consult their vet before making any modifications in their dog's diet. The chapter titled "Pooch Parties" should be a big hit with dog lovers who like to include their canine companions.
