A while back Laura B. made a comment about canning emergency rations for our doggy buddies. I asked her to consider posting about it for those of us ignorant of the process (like yours truly). She has done so and bless her because it's priceless information. Go here, read it and then make a reference copy (I hope that's Ok Laura) for later use. It's chock full of informationy goodness with photos for those of us who are visual learners, including dos and don'ts (the tip on can openers being a great example). For anyone with beloved dogs (and there's no reason it won't work for cats or any other pets you might have) this is how you ensure that if things go from bad to worse you'll be able to keep them fed and healthy.
Love you Laura. Lu and I are in the process of following your advice and prepping for Angus. I can't thank you enough for posting on this. Helping each other in times of distress is what this community is all about. Well done!
