National Love your Pet Day : Wags are in the Air


, , , , , , , , ,

very day is a love fest for Sadie, tails wag constantly even in her sleep. You have to wonder what magical land she dreams about. Hillsides of tall grass with trees that grow cheese.

Anyone can own a dog, but only love can make them wag their tail. Make a dog wag their tail today!

A Dog’s Love : The Perfect Valentine


, , , , , ,


A dog is always happy to see you, even if you just walked into another room.

A dog listens to you, no matter how boring the subject might be.

A dog will give you a kiss, even if you have morning breath.

A dog loves you unconditionally.

So this Valentine’s Day remember to pay a little extra attention to that furry friend who loves you so much.

Remember the dog motto:

PUMPKIN BONE : a recipe worthy of dropping a ball for


, , , , ,

WOOF, there are not many things that will make me drop the ball…
but this recipe is an exception.


2 eggs (we use the brown shelled ones but don’t use the shells!)

1/2 cup canned organic pumpkin 

2 tablespoons dry milk (great for putting protein into your dog’s diet)

1/4 teaspoon sea salt (sea salt is good for pets with pet arthritis)

2 1/2 cups brown rice flour (traditional flours don’t provide good nutrition for dogs)

1/2 teaspoon honey (optional, it is just a taste that Sadie likes and your pup might like too)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Blend together; eggs with pumpkin and honey together
  • Add in sea salt, dry milk, and flour.
  • Add water as needed to make the dough workable be careful not to make soggy.
  • The dough should be dry and stiff. (crunchy and good for teeth brushing)
  • Mix this with your hands because it  might burn out your electric mixer’s motor.
  • Roll to 1/2-inch thick.
  • Cut into shapes, most people shape like dog bones but you can add some fun to your pup’s life by making fun shapes like hearts for valentine’s day or bat for howl-O-ween. We like this website for buying cookie cutters: TheCoookieCutterShop
  • Place 1″ to 1”1/2  apart on an un-greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 20 minutes on one side, then flip and bake another 20 minutes.


Dear Santa


, , , , , , , ,


I have been a good girl all year and won’t take up too much space. I would really like to help you bring some good cheer to all the other good four-leggers this year.

So, if dear reader, you happen to spy this Christmas Eve a small four-legger with the wind in their hair and a wag in their tail helping St. Nick deliver good cheer it’s just me Sadie Paws!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night!

Oh how I love this time of year, the door bells start ringing from now until Santa “Claws” comes to town. And today was a spectacular day indeed. A wonderful Blue Tin came to visit us today. I know the two-leggers have given Garrett’s Popcorn as gifts before but today we got the gift. The gift of POPCORN! Not just any popcorn the cheesiest, fluffiest popcorn I have ever tried.

I did not even mind that the two-leggers only let me sample the yellow fluffy pieces while hogging the caramelized ones. They call this popcorn delight the Garrett Mix which combines sweet CaramelCrisp with savory CheeseCorn.

Here are some tips for the two-leggers when they wish to feed us four-leggers POPCORN: Popcorn must be a supervised treat and for little munchkins like me it is best to have the two-legger take out any unpopped kernels or hulls, this is perfect because that leaves the fluffy stuff just for us! Also even though I would eat the whole tin myself we four-leggers should only have a few pieces so to watch our daily allowance of starches.

Now where did they hide that tin! PUP-corn, I LOVE IT!

Mini-Me Sadie : a birthday present for my people


, , , , , ,


One of my two-legged people was having a birthday. What is a puppy to do? I must come up with the perfect present.

I thought and thought long and hard about what would make a perfect gift:

A bone? No, I never see the two-leggers gnawing on bones.

A ball? They do love to throw my ball, but I want them to know all the balls in the house belong to me so that would be confusing for them.

A toilet paper roll end? No they always tell me to drop it and then throw it into the trash. I would hate to get a gift that ended up in the trash bin.

Then as I sat on my other two-legger’s lap I saw it.

The perfect gift. What do my people love the most in the house? Well, it is ME of course.

And there it was, a place on called GourmetFelted that makes Custom Pet Portraits made by sculptor Gerry. PERFECT! I know what I needed to give my two-legged: A Mini-Me! Sadie Mini-Me!!!!

The day it arrived I could hardly wait for my people to open the box.

There it was… ME a little Mini-Me!

BUT wait…was this a good idea?
It is as cute as me.
It made my two-leggers smile just like they do when they look at me!
It is smaller than me so maybe they will like it better than me.

WHEW! Thank goodness they put it in the glass cage in the living room.
My place on their lap is safe! Yes this was indeed a great present a MINI-ME!

Thank you Gerry of Gourmet Felted for making this MINI-Sadie-ME! It was a big hit!
