Egg Dog Food

This morning I collected 4 duck eggs, 4 chicken eggs and 13 quail eggs. That is pretty much the average although the ducks can be stingy and only give two eggs sometimes.  I tend to give quite a few to my neighbor and if they gave me things in return that would be self sufficient...but they don't -- not anymore... though they love me and are happy to take my eggs.

Normally I have to buy canned dog food for our shepherd. He is nearly 9 years old now and can still eat dry dog food but he prefers not to eat much of it so he gets canned now. He will however happily eat any bone, leftover or whatever you decide to bring to him. Today I brought him chopped up hard boiled eggs mixed with a little cat food. He was perfectly happy with that and it saved me a can of dog food.
