Thanksgiving: we all woof it down sometimes


, , , , , , , , ,


This upcoming week the United States will give “thanks” by eating approximately 46 million turkeys! I will be giving thanks that four-legged fur friends are not on the menu!

Some safety tips for your fur-friend this Turkey Holiday.


Some bones can fragment and cut your pet’s insides. Save your bones this thanksgiving for a broth and not your dog!

Onions and the onion powders we use in stuffing should not be given to your four-legged friend. They destroy red blood cells and can lead to a bad case of anemia. You stuff yourself with the stuffing and give your fur-friend a pet safe alternative.

3. WALK it OFF
It is important to keep to your pet’s regular meal and exercise schedule. Too much change in your pet’s diet and routine can cause awful tummy aches, diarrhea and vomiting. So even if your furry pal begs to indulge just say no and go for a walk!

It is a festive time of year and as we cook up a storm in the kitchen the trash bin grows and become very tempting prize. Your pet might think they hit the garbage jackpot but this casino can is a deadly health risk. Tie it up and take it out!

Most of us know we will be breaking the bank on fatty foods on Thanksgiving but don’t let your furry-friend indulge just for this one day because these foods can give your pet pancreatitis or gastroenteritis which is not only painful but could be deadly!

So maybe on your shopping list this holiday you purchase a little pet friendly special treat so your fur-pal has their own holiday treat!

Some suggestions on our list are:
HALO Liv-a-Littles: Grain-Free 100% Chicken Breast Freeze-Dried Dog & Cat Treats. You can sprinkle it on their food, give it as a treat or put it in the water to rehydrate it as a juicy treat!

Beef Flank Steak Treats: Simply dehydrated USDA Certified beef flank steak sliced by hand and ranges in texture from semi-crispy (like a thick potato chip) to thick and chewy (like beef jerky) Sadie absolutely loves these treats!


DOGISMS: my dog is smarter than most people

Why don’t people learn from our pets, just listen to Sadie!

1. “If it is something you really want… chase it!”

2. “Life is short… play often!”

3. “If no one is paying attention… BARK!”

4. “If you aren’t getting what you want… go fetch!”

5. “Keep digging until you find what you are looking for!”

If you have any favorite dogisms … just LEAVE IT!

Photoshoot with Diana Lundin : Dog StoryTelling Session with Sadie Miki

Diana Lundin Photoshoot image 1

We are very excited to see our new photos from talented Diana Lundin, Pet Photography. It is part of her famous Storytelling Sessions. You can book a session with her @

We had to practice with the little red wagon and piano prior to the shoot and I give extra tail wags to the Zoomroom trainer Sarah for helping me get over my fear of strange objects on wheels. Diana was very patient and made sure that I gave good face in front of her magic lens. I even got to take a few timeouts to chase the ball.

I think Diana unleashed my personality perfectly with her camera lens. I might have to fend off the puparazzi once everyone sees these works of art she created for us.

It was fun and my mom says we will hang these in the living room as a corner set. (I am not certain what a corner set is but I will supervise when they go up to make sure everyone can enjoy them.

Thank you Diana Lundin, it takes an artist to capture a four-legged pet’s personality and fun-loving spirit …we love your photo art! It is Woof-tacular!

LIVING BIG when you are small


, , , , ,


Everyone feels small at times, it’s just normal to think you are a little fish in some kind of big pond in the universe but I say turn that around and think of the flip side of living small. You are fast like a ninja. You can go places that no once else can. You are a GIANT when it comes to personality.

Big or small we are all unique! Go be YOU!
Love Sadie

MOONSTRUCK HALLOWEEN for the love of a puppy


, , , , , , , , , , , ,


Each year the loud creepy noises of Howl-o-Ween fill the air and ghosts and goblins petite in size come to the door asking for treats or they will do some tricks.

I wonder how the two-leggers could teach their children all wrong. The way it should be done as all us four-leggers know so well is first you DO THE TRICK and then you GET THE TREAT!

The next ghost or gobblin you see this halloween teach them the real way to earn that treat! Love as Howlishly Sweet …Sadie

Bone-a-lickious Howl-o-ween Recipe

  • 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.

Get out a cookie sheet, lined with a non-stick cooking mat.  Set aside.

Quickly stir the egg and pureed pumpkin together in a mixing bowl.
Add the flour and mix into a dough.
Flour your work surface.
Roll out dough to a 1/4 inch thickness.

Cut out shapes and place on cookie sheet. You can do bones, pumpkins, witches and ghosts. We like using the cookie cutters at Wilton.

Place cookie sheet in the hot monster in the kitchen the two-leggers call an oven and bake for 40 minutes.

Allow to fully cool before eating.

For extra crunchy Bake in the oven for another 5 -10 minutes and allow to cool.

Here’s Baking at you…Love Sadie…Woof em down

Confessions of a TP addict : Dog gone intervention


, , , , , , , , ,

There has been an intervention in my house. The TP Intervention!
Every day I dutifully follow my two legged people into the room that has the special stash. Sometimes the roll is too big for my petite mouth but I still wait with anticipation for the sound of the end of the roll.

I need it, I want it, I must devour it.

I steel it when the roll is ready!

They chase me around the room saying “drop it
… this is how I know it is the premo TP.

Alas they have cut me off. No more end of the roll fun, well at least not when they are looking!
