Not really discolor, does it looks like came out of water?
if so, that is because the steamer works. Steamer is cooking the food via water vapor and heat. For the dogs to looks like dog, you need to "dry out" the skin. pan fry, BBQ, grill, or any other metod you can to dry out the skin, then it should start to look like a dog.

Hi. My dog won't take his worming tablet even mixed n food. I've heard that nexgard spectre chewable tablets may be the answer as they are given as a treat. What do you think?

They work, sometimes, but if your dog is to picky it doesn't do any good. However, I've had luck sicking it in a small peace of hot dog, just cut the hotdog in to bite size peaces and act like it's a treat. Get the dog excited and doing good and toss him a treat with medicine.
On the other side,
I have 1 dog that nothing works on, not chewables, not hot dog. I have just open his mouth and push the pill back in his throat. For this I purchase the smallest pill I can. I don't like doing it, but if it is back far enough he cant spit it out. If you grab his mouth correctly then you don't have to worry about him biting you either. I do it with a full size Doberman.

Are there human DNA in hot dogs

Yes, looks like it, but DNA screening is so sensitive, it could be one hair minced up, or a few flakes of skin.

How do I make the octopus turkey dogs

These are fairly easy, but you must have a very sharp knife with a thin blade.

Leaving about 2 inches or so on one end of the dog whole, slice it in half lengthwise. Roll it over 90 degrees and repeat so that you have 4 tentacles. Now, here is where you need that sharp, thin-bladed knife; each of your 4 tentacles need to be sliced in half lengthwise. They can be a little difficult, so do this carefully and slowly.

Lay the dog out flat on a microwave safe plate (if you stand it up,heating could cause it to split) and zap it for 30-40 seconds. This can also be done in a steamer until it is heated through. This step will cause the head to plump and the tentacles to curl.

Your octopus is now done, but you need to plate it up in a fun and interesting way. Some ideas are: ramen noodles or thin spaghetti that has been dyed with food coloring (green for seaweed, blue for the ocean), chili or hot dog sauce can be a rocky beach, plop him down on some mac & cheese or baked beans. Little dots of mustard can be eyes. I know these cephalopods have a beak where their tentacles meet, but for a kid's party, a smiley face is just fine.

Hope this helps! Enjoy and have fun!

where does it get too??

machine take in washing and lock the door
then add water in stages
and usually heat it as they go
once it comes up to temp
it washes
then it rinses
if it gets to rinse past a water in rotate and wash

then spits the dummy
its most often outlet waste pump or something inside the rubber
between the drum and the pump
if its a front loader and you have kids or dogs
check for rubbish like plastic stuff
inside the drum skin {outer}
ive found in the last week five machine
three had doggy do bags inside the skin melted over the heater
E18 is a timer error with drain
so check out all the drainage
bearing in mind what can get trapped in the pump
brazier wires coins screws nails small plastic bags etc etc

depower the machine at the mains
clean any blockage

then when you power back on
press first the power on or start stop
then mains it should give a long beeeeep and reset...

and not try to carry on the failed cycle

I have a Krups coffee/espresso maker, with a milk steamer. It makes great coffee and espresso; however, the steamer is not working. It is not clogged; I cleaned the handle with a fine needle, and water...

There must be a blockage in that steam pipe, I think you need to dismantle the machine and remove all of the steamer parts off the boiler and look for the cause of the problem. Oftentimes it will be old hard milk that has been drawn up the pipe and gone hard from the heat. Once cleaned out prevention by blowing a large amount of extra steam through it after each use is the solution.

Well ya can juice 'em but it's a bit labour intensive .. lol 'cause ya gotta skin 'em, and get ALL the "Seeds" out, they taste bad... then put the pulp in.. and juice away... yield is low also .. but tastes real nice in the end.. I usually do it in a plastic bag,and tip the pulp into the juicer. Ya can make great "leathers" too..
