1. Place the chicken pieces in a large saucepan with the carrots. Add the measured water and simmer for 20-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove the chicken from the stock and set aside.
2. Bring the stock back to simmering point, add the diluted corn flour and stir until it has thickened. Add the cabbage and oregano and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave to cool.
3. Discard the chicken bones and skin, and finely shred the meat. Add to the cooled soup.
Mix the Paw-ty Punch or Cheeky Chicken ingredients together in a jug. Pour the punch, or the chicken soup, into popsicle molds or ice cube trays. If you want, replace standard lollipop sticks with rawhide chew sticks. Freeze and feed to cool your canines on hot summer days.

When God had made the earth and sky
The flowers and the trees
He then made all the animals
And all the birds and bees
And when his work was finished
He said “I’ll walk this earth of mine
And give each one a name”
And so He travelled land and sea
And everywhere He went
A little creature followed Him
until its strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth
and in the sky and sea,
The little creature said “Dear Lord”,
There is not one left for me”.
The Heavenly Father smiled and said
I’ve left you to the end.
I’ve turned my own name back to front
And called you “DOG”, my friend”.
