What's in Niko's Bowl?

The answer to that question is Blue Buffalo dry dog food. Occasionally, he finds surprises in his bowl. A great way to spice up his usual meal is to sprinkle on some cheese. Niko's food bowl is in the kitchen. Whenever a recipe calls for cheese, I sneak some of it into Niko's bowl before putting it back in the fridge. I had some freshly grated Parmesan cheese left in a container in the fridge that I've been slowly depleting by way of Niko's bowl. This cheese is especially aromatic and he LOVES it. 

Niko oftens peeks into the kitchen when we're in there cooking. He stares me down to see if I share anything. His nose picks up scents of meat and cheese very well.
We noticed Niko's been munching down more food than usual. We attribute it to the colder weather and his survival instincts kicking in. 


  1. Its ok for dogs to have dairy products?

  2. we put some sprinkle of cheese in it, too, sometimes! or, hide little dry fish or frozen veges some other times. and boiled chicken topping for every meal. kibbles are boring, so we feel guilty, and add stuff to the bowl...

  3. Cheese is OK, as long as they are not allergic.
    It sure is nice to add a little bonus to boring kibble :)
