GAP Cookbook Fundraiser!!!

I can't believe that my last blog post was nearly a month ago!! It’s been a busy time out here in Wellington for our young Mila Grey...
In the last few weeks, we’ve been on our first GAP beach run over in the Wairarapa, out and about meeting other hounds from our own neighbourhood, on a visit to Waikanae beach for adventures with seagulls and fish skeleton, and we even had a sleep over with our friend Rupert the Cavalier King-Charles x Maltese. We’ve learnt some new tricks (shake hands and dance), managed to destroy several unsuspecting squeaky toys (often within the first few minutes of having them), and we’ve watched some Olympics – if by “watched some Olympics” you mean blocked the TV while other people are trying to watch the Olympics, impatiently bounced round the room when our usual morning walk time clashed with Val Adams’ shot put final, or leapt off the couch in a tizz when Rach screamed at the TV when Nathan Cohen and Joseph Sullivan won NZ its first gold medal.

One of the things that has been keeping us entertained in our quieter moments has been researching recipes for a new GAP fundraiser - a cookbook full of delicious doggy recipes contributed by greyhound/dog lovers around NZ – which will hopefully be available for sale in time for Christmas!

I am in charge of collecting up the recipes that come through and to help me out, I have engaged the services of Mila as Chief Taste Tester. She is very much looking forward to sampling all the yummy recipes that come through our inbox.
Mila is really excited about her new role as Chief Taste Tester
We are currently on the lookout for great canine recipes to fill the cookbook - and are keen on anything from a favourite dog biscuit recipe, a unique use of leftovers, a good way to settle a queasy greyhound stomach...whatever! So, if you have any homemade dishes/culinary tips that your canine friends just can’t get enough of, please send the following info through to me at by 1 September 2012 with ‘GAP Cookbook’ in the subject line:
1. Your name and the name of your dog/s
2. The name of your recipe (if it doesn’t already have a name, come up with something  fun!)
3. A list of ingredients
4. Step by step preparation method
5. The type of recipe you are submitting – to help us categorise the recipes that come in (Is it a meal by itself or as a treat on special occasions? Is it best served in the winter as a nice warm meal? Or is it a cold treat for the summertime?)
6. A photo of your dish (if you have one)

Send in as many recipes as you like! The more interesting, the better! We will do our absolute best to get as many different recipes, from as many different submitters in there as we can.

P.S. We are also looking for businesses/sponsors who might be interested in advertising in the cookbook to assist us with printing costs. If you know of anyone who might be keen, please also let me know.
