Day 337: Treats for Tybs {Recipe revealed!!}


Checking on the dog treats baking away in the oven. This is a great recipe that I’ve been using for my dogs for about a year now.

They are fairly simple and all the ingredients are doggie safe. [I’m not a vet or pet nutritionist].

Doggie Treats (makes ~2 dozen)
1 cup wheat flour
1/3 cup cornmeal
1 TBSP oil
1/4 cup low sodium chicken/beef broth
1 egg
1/8 cup low or fat free milk

1 egg, beaten for egg wash
Oil for cookie sheet

Whisk together flour and cornmeal then add wet ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
Roll out into floured surface 1/4 inch thick and cut out shapes.
Grease cookie sheet and brush each cookie with egg wash.
Bake 350 for 20-30 minutes.
Allow to cool and freeze extra.

Day 258: Snuggling With Love


Once you go furry you never go back. I can’t imagine how many furry fanatics will accidently find my blog because of that first sentence. My dog and my man are furry which means they are super warm and snuggly in winter.

Tybamt especially loves to get his breakfast, go outside to do his business then return to the bed to curl up on the bed. Thankfully this means that once you do the Tybalt wake-up call, you can get some more sleep.

He typically wants his breakfast between 5:00 and 6:30 AM.
It helps to keep me from being entirely lazy all day.

Day 227: Happy Adoption Day


Today is Tybalt’s birthday!!!
Or his adoption day if you want to get technical. We don’t know when he was born or how old he was. (Guessing he is 3 years old now).

Remember when I first posted about my new puppy?
Seems like a while ago. His shelter photo looks nothing like him now. The eyes are similar but he doesn’t look so sad now.


You can’t really tell what his birthday present is in these pictures. It took him less than two hours to break down a big bone. I was shocked.

The only parts we didn’t let him eat were the slivers left over from him crunching. He was having trouble crunching them smaller and we were worries he would just try to straight swallow them.


Best two dollars spent. He might get another one around Christmas and he will be getting more homemade biscuit treats soon. Promise, lil buddy!!

He no longer has accidents in the floor (thank goodness!). He sits before getting his leash and going outdoors. Most of his manners are pretty bad but he does know Off really well and I never thought that would sink in. He lets me rake embarrassing pictures of him.


He loves to eat (good and bad) anything and everything. He snores, just like his parents. He gets super excited over his stingray toy and any marinated chews. His favorite spot to sleep in bed is between me and Kit or in a nest bordered by our legs (if you have dogs you know what I mean). He dances with me– even if he doesn’t like the song.

Happy birthday to my beagle baby boy!!!!

Day 216: Kitten Curl


You know it is time for yet another picture of one of my animals acting cute like.

The weather turns colder the animals keep snuggling closer.
As I type these words I am under a little fleece blanket with my cat snuggled at my hip and my dog snuggled by my calf.
They are just about as close as they can get :-)

I wouldn’t trade my mini-hot water bottles for anything. They are a joy and light when everything outside is so gray.

Kit isn’t bad either. He is a big hot water bottle and the best snuggle bear. I’m a bit sentimental if you can’t tell.
