A HOUND, who in the days of his youth and strength had never yielded to any beast of the forest, encountered in his old age a boar in the chase. He seized him boldly by the ear, but could not retain his hold because of the decay of his teeth, so that the boar escaped.
His master, quickly coming up, was very much disappointed, and fiercely abused the dog. The Hound looked up and said: It was not my fault. master; my spirit was as good as ever, but I could not help mine infirmities. I rather deserve to be praised for what I have been, than to be blamed for what I am.
Moral:No one should be blamed for his infirmities.

A CRITTER'S CHRISTMAS
Everybody has a holiday treatMy Grandpas Olaf and Russell
Molasses Salt blocks Dried oats and wheat berries Suet Preserved fruits and berries Dry hay straw Dried corn cobs Dried clover SeedsCream
My grandfathers, both farmers and tied to a natural place, revered above all: family, their livelihoods and the animals that made everything possible.
I remember a Christmas when I learned the extent to which that bond was shared with a feast for all, man and animal, everyone ate well. New salt blocks were set out near clean, dry hay, food for the cattle, new bedding for all and fresh water, no easy task in Saskatchewan in December. Various dried grains and fruits and berries gleaned from the preceding seasons, stored just for the occasion, were divided each according to their preference.
Chickens pecked over a field of scattered gold while the wild birds found suet balls covered with seed and the goose had extra corn. The pigs slopped with rich leavings and warmth, the horses snuffled in troughs filled with oats and molasses while the cats and dogs licked their fill of cream from the dairy.
It was a wonderful day that Christmas, so rich I hardly had room for my own meal.

This recipe provides whole foods for your dog. Natural, whole foods provide the environment for vitamins and minerals to work together as a team. In nature, we never find an isolated vitamin or mineral. They work together with phytochemicals and nutraceuticals which act as cofators for balanced absorption and digestion.
