Bread Trumps All


I’m dog sitting my brother’s dog while he’s on vacation in Cancun for Passover. This is a big deal because I don’t do dogs.  I bought him this dog cause HE wanted it, and I guess that’s why I got stuck with babysitting privileges. 

Here’s the catch with watching a dog on Passover, according to the Rabbis, I have to change her diet to non-leavened grub.  Here’s a list of foods I CANNOT feed my animal for the next eight days:

Any dog food consisting of wheat, wheat starch, wheat gluten, barley, oats, oat fiber, pasta, rye, or brewer’s yeast is OUT.

Here’s a list of dog foods that I CAN serve little Layla:

Hunk of Beef, 100% buffalo, duck, pheasant, and venison.

If I have a fish, I can’t feed them the typical pyramid feeders or vacation blocks because they have Chametz.

Here’s what I can feed my fish:

Dried worms, brine shrimp, and tubular worms.

According to this, Passover is the one time of year where Trafe meat, insects, and shellfish are kosher- it’s just the bread that is OUT. 

Huh, nice to know- that is if you’re a dog or a clown fish.
