Doggie Chef Comes to Bayport! Sam Desmond

Christine M. Filardi, author of Home Cooking for Your Dog, held a lecture at Bayport-Blue Point Library on August 1 to discuss the benefits of homemade meals for Fido.  The class had already reached capacity a week beforehand, showing a strong interest in our community for more natural-eating habits for our four-legged family members.  The story featured in this article (“Park Tails: Dinner and Doggie Moms was originally published by LI-DOG, a group that advocates for canine access to Long Island’s parks and beaches, and tells the story of friendship forged from a love of dogs (and wine/play dates in Bayport…)

    Never in my snarky, sarcastic, Wednesday Addams-inspired existence did I ever think I would use the term “fur baby” as seriously as I do now.  But then again having children has been known for dramatic personality changes, or in my case, revelations.  After twelve years of marriage, Oban and Rye, our beloved, rascally, four-legged boys have become the center of our world.  We plan our weekends according to pack walks and most of our conversations revolve around Oban’s teenage sulking and lamenting the day when Rye will follow suit and stop being a cuddly toddler. 
    Our circle of friends has grown with like-minded fur parents who can relate with and debate our children’s experiences.  One of our dearest friends, Christine M. Filardi, author of my new kitchen Bible, Home Cooking for Your Dog, already seemed a kindred spirit to me as a fellow writer and doggie mom when I “friend’d” her on Facebook to learn more about her recipes. After furiously taking notes at one of Christine’s lectures on the immeasurable benefits of raw cooking vs. kibble and keeping her for another hour as I asked questions that could have been addressed via email, we became instant good friends, bonded in devotion to our fur children. 
    With Christine and I both driving cross-county almost bi-weekly for doggie play dates between Long Beach and Bayport, we have inundated our social media pages proudly posting our (collectively) four boys running and chasing each other as we egg them on like over-enthusiastic football moms and drink wine.  The posts, while partly Kardashian-narcissism, really function as a movement, one that fuels the vision and work of LI-DOG that dogs are central members of the family and a forever home involves more than just the backyard, but rather, the whole community.
    A major component of improving the quality of life for our dogs was to introduce more natural, “human” if you will, foods to our boys.  Originally I was skittish because of the costs I envisioned; I was at a loss for how to afford $18.99 a pound for Whole Foods’ organic ground beef! Christine played the role of sagacious (and thrifty) mom, easing me into cooking for my boys.
    To talk me off the cliff of financial ruin with luxurious yuppie vendors, Christine reminded me that regular, grocery store meat was still far fresher than chemically treated kibble and totally fine to let my boys enjoy.  For days when I knew I’d be too busy to prepare a homemade meal, she offered canned alternatives (super cost-effective mackerel, sardines, and salmon) and a long list of vegetables and whole grain high-quality carbohydrates (couscous, quinoa, and barley) to keep my boys feeling as full as they did on kibble.  She warned me ahead of time of some loose stool during the transition and responded to my barrage of 6:00 am text messages with images of my boys’ morning bowel movements letting me know they were okay. 
    Like many newer moms, I fretted over every ingredient and cried when my version of Christine’s recipes did not look as Pinterest-worthy as they did in her book.  As a veteran doggie-mom, Christine reminded me our pups were not too particular about food presentation.  After about a month of semi-raw cooking (I now sauté the meat because the smell of cooking food makes my boys salivate in anticipated ecstasy) I’ve come to relish the role of doggie chef and am ecstatic to be amongst so many other loving doggie parents.
