bowl of cheesey bread dog treat squares

Recipe: Cheesy Bread Dog Treat Squares

Cheese please. What pup doesn’t like taste of cheddar once in a while? Yes, I understand dairy isn’t the best thing for canine intestines so moderation is the key. And these are treats, right. The original version of this recipe suggested cutting the dough into strips, but admittedly that didn’t work for me. So I […]

Whew. Home hours ago from our fifth Wiggle Waggle Walk September 9, 2018 and my dog Victor is sleeping at my feet already. (Check out last year here).

Recipe: Cheesy Potluck Doggie Cookies

But first, here’s some dog donuts I modified a dog cake recipe from […]

Dog-friendly Starlite Drive-in at Dusk

One dog, one drive-in and one night of kick ass Wonder Woman.

I’ll go almost anywhere if I can bring my dog, and sometimes try my luck at a place I can’t. But when a reader emails me with a dog-friendly suggestion, I have to follow up. Plus, I really wanted to see the film Wonder Woman before spoilers, well, spoiled it. That’s how I ended up […]

Need a Pet Portrait? Love these Fuzzy ones.

I admit it. I teared up when I saw the pic of my Fuzzy Felties sent to me for approval by creator Le L from 38 Star Point. Pending approval, they would be mine. And I whole-heartedly approved. I am continuing my on-going quest to find as many handmade or created ‘portraits’ of my pets […]

Instead of printing and mailing cards this year, I schlepped my terrier-cross Victor to pet rescue Holiday Pictures fundraisers and got his photo taken with Santa.

Was he thrilled? You be the judge. Take a look:
