Throw Me a Bone: 50 Healthy, Canine Taste-Tested Recipes for Snacks, Meals, and Treats Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A guide to cooking healthy, tasty food for man's (and woman's) best friend — with 50 recipes and illustrated with 50 b/w photographs and drawings. By Cooper Gillespie, bestselling author Susan Orlean's dog, with recipes by Sally Sampson.

Review:

"Raconteur, bon vivant, connoisseur, philosopher, and wag, Cooper Gillespie is the canine James Beard. His musings, coupled with Sampson's toothsome recipes, make me wish I were a teacup poodle or an Italian mastiff rather than just Gillespie's typist and muse." Susan Orlean

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [137]-140) and index.

Synopsis:

Cooper Gillespie, an extremely intelligent and handsome Welsh springer spaniel, is a dog of discriminating taste and strong opinions. Now Cooper, with the assistance of cookbook author Sally Sampson and the transcription services of his favorite human, Susan Orlean, has put together 50 delectable recipes for snacks, meals, and treats for your canine companion.

Maybe you're cooking everything because your collie has colitis or your Akita has a wheat allergy or your older dog just isn't thriving on commercial kibble. Maybe you're mixing up the occasional biscuit or treat to help your best fur-bearing friend over that I-just-ate-a-tennis- ball-and-don't-feel-so-good episode. Whatever the reason, the recipes in this book (which have been approved by dog trainer and nutritional consultant Stacy Alldredge) will satisfy the most discerning doggie palate. Many of them, in fact, can be shared with a favorite human (though preferably not from the same dish).

Illustrated with more than 50 endearing black-and-white photographs of Cooper and friends by Cami Johnson, and liberally seasoned with stories, quotes, and nutrition tips, Throw Me a Bone makes a dog's dinner something to look forward to.
