Well I should have looked on here before I made him gallons of venison chili! No tomato based foods? He never said a word, was so humbled by my gift of food, that stinker! Thank goodness I only made one batch. The container was empty so I'll assume someone enjoyed it?  I'm going to have to get his goat next week when my Boxer boys go get their yearly check up and shots and tell him I brought him boxes of canned tomatos and juice! That will be a hoot to see his face! Shhhh if you know him don't tell him until after our appointment 4/25! Can you tell we love Doctor Pol, his family and staff? Great people and I'm very honored to say he's been a kind and gentle friend of ours for years. Now we share him with the world! World, be good to them as they are like family to us and have known him far longer than what you know from a TV show. He's the real deal! Down to earth and no uppity attitude and a straight shooter!
