Those darn dawgs again!

Saturday I collect scraps from my butcher, Paul. Today there were three large bags which all needs sorting through.

There were a load of lights (lambs lungs) which I do boil up, firstly, they are not to keen on them raw and secondly it gives me some gravy if I feed them some biscuits and lastly it is difficult to cut raw resulting in bloody fingers on more than one occasion!

So I sorted through the other bags, chucked out the fat and pork rind and some bones. These I take down to the beach and throw in the sea as the fish and crabs will clear it up.

That lot sorted I took one LARGE pot off lights off the cooker and put it on the counter top. To hot to handle so I left it there whilst I had a cup of tea.

I suddenly here a funny noise and Arthur had helped himself to a set of lungs and was making for the door. As he did so he was leaving a trail of gravy across the kitchen.

I ran after him and he was trying to gulp it down but it was way to hot for him and he had to drop it. He was totally guiltless over his actions!

First off, what do the fellow beach goers think of a women religiously throwing bone and meat into the ocean? You could easily commit a crime if they're used to it by now!

As for that pup Arthur, I'm sure he's feeling quite sneaky pulling that off!

There is a drop from the promenade car park down onto rocks, I throw it over there. Nothing illegal about it. Just a bit more than the fishermen would use!

Also the current takes it out rather than onto the sand beach.

I never chuck anything that won't be eaten over there.

That's a great idea! get people used to seeing you chuck charnal matter into the sea, . . . then kill someone and cut them up and throw them into the sea, and no one even will bat an eyebrow!


Those bones? the ones you throw away? Man, I'd be boiling that up for me! makes the best broth and is really good for you, too.

Tinyliny, sometimes some of the meat I get from him is waaaaaay to good for the dogs. He bags it up separately and says nothing.

I do make some broth from some of the bones but am limited to how much I have in the freezer.

Never thought about the body disposal. Good idea but also cannot think of anyone I want to dispose of. LOL

@tinyliny you could also roast the bones and then eat the marrow. I watched a fancy NY restaurant on the food channel and saw this.

Doubt that would induce me to murder - a child more likely.
