The Big Fix – Sterilizing Your Pet

I know sterilizing your pet can be a big agonizing decision for some of us. Many factors can come into play, not the least of which is the cost for the procedure. Sterilizing your pet refers to the neutering of male animals or spaying of females.  Both procedures effectively render the animal unable to reproduce.  Sterilizing your pet means they will undergo surgical procedures done by a vet while the pet is under general anesthesia and intubated (a breathing tube is inserted in the ...

Salmon & Dill Dog Food Topper

I think you all know by now that we own a very spoiled and finicky Siberian Husky named Cannoli.  Let me repharse, Cannoli, a spoiled and finicky Husky owns us.  I guess like most pet owners and animal lovers we tend to spoil our fur balls who bring so much joy to our lives. My husband recently asked me who I spoil more, the grandkids or the dog, LOL!  As if!  The question should be who does HE spoil more. I categorically deny spoiling anyone, people or pets!  After all it was under ...

Chicken N’ Gravy Dog Food Topper Recipe

I think everyone knows that we share our home with a very spoiled and finicky almost 2 year old Siberian Husky named Cannoli.  For the last few months we've been trying to put some weight on her.  This has proven to be a difficult task, not only is she finicky, she's very active too! We've tried everything to get her to eat her dog food, including switching brands from Merrick, to Blue Wilderness, and now to Solid Gold. All very good dog food, and all on the high end of the spectrum as far ...

Homemade PB & Veggie Dog Biscuits For a Shiny Coat!

Last week I whipped up a batch of homemade PB & Veggie Dog Biscuits for my pooch Cannoli and her friends in Obedience Class.  Since class fell on Easter Sunday it was a good time to share some treats so I packed the biscuits in Easter packaging. This time I added Brewer's Yeast and Flax Seed Meal to the biscuits, both are said to promote healthy skin and shiny coats.  I used Peanut Butter mostly for taste, Cannoli loves her Peanut Butter, but it's also a good source of protein, heart ...

Sweet Potato Dog Chews

I was in Petco just before Christmas looking for treats for my Siberian Husky, she loves treats!  I was shocked at how expensive dog treats have gotten.  I found a small bag of "all natural" sweet potato treats priced at $12.99, my dog loves sweet potatoes, but I wasn't ready to fork over 13 bucks for a few pieces of dehydrated sweet potato when I could buy a whole bag of sweet potato for about $5.  I decided I could make my own dog chews so I got a bag of sweet potato from Walmart and ...

Petco’s Self-Service Dog Wash, The BEST $10 Deal For Dogs!

This weekend my Siberian Husky, Cannoli, rolled in the mud, again!  It's been quite rainy here and the holes Cannoli has dug in the backyard have all turned into mud pits.  Mud pits that she enjoys rolling in!  Instead of being her fluffy self, she was one big red mud dog.  Yuck!  Of course she would have to do this the morning of her scheduled training class!  I didn't have time to take her to the groomer for a good washing, and I couldn't take her to class looking like a mud monster, ...

DIY Frozen Yogurt Dog Treats

A recent routine visit to the vet resulted in finding out that our year old Siberian Husky, Cannoli, is 2-3 pounds underweight.  I was surprised!  The vet assured me that it wasn't a big deal and that a daily dose of vitamins should make her pick up some weight; that and perhaps getting her to eat a little more dog food or even switching brands. I feed all my pets grain free dry Merrick pet food, I've been told it's very good.  I also make pets healthy homemade treats and give them safe ...
